  • Mogg: Hey you there! Sign up the FIRST membership now.

  • or they're gonna eat me!

  • (Cues: Invader - Jim Johnston)

  • Wiz: Every champion of justice inspires others whether they mean to or not.

  • Boomstick: And sometimes that "inspiration" create your worst nightmare.

  • Wiz: Venom the ultimate antiphasis to Spider-Man.

  • Boomstick: And Bane the burly genius who broke the Bat.

  • He's Wiz and I'm Boomstick.

  • Wiz: And it's our job to analyse their weapons, armor, and skills to find out who will win a DEATH BATTLE.

  • The word "symbiosis" refers to two organisms living in beneficial harmony, such as when two beings bond over an obsessive, psychotic desire to kill Spider-Man.

  • Boomstick: Eddie Brock was an up and comin' journalist on the brink of national success, when life decided to just shit all over him.

  • Wiz: One day, Eddie published an article incriminating a man he thought was a serial killer.

  • However, that very same day, Spider-Man caught the real killer, publicly shaming Eddie.

  • As a result, Eddie's company fired him, his father disowned him, and his wife left him.

  • Also, he had cancer.

  • Boomstick: Damn, talk about a bad day.

  • Understandably pretty upset about it, Eddie blamed Spider-Man for ruining his life.

  • This led to his fateful meeting with a weird, black, gooey alien.

  • Remember Gak from the 90's?

  • It's just like that, except alive and...

  • Evil...

  • Venom: (Roars)

  • Wiz: This was a symbiote from the planet Klyntar, an alien species with one goal: to grow stronger by fusing with a living host.

  • I know that sounds intimidating and almost parasitic, but the Klyntar people are naturally a peaceful race.

  • However, they often inherit their host's traits and personality, this symbiote in particular had previously bonded with a violent alien bent on genocide, and a costumed superhero everybody knows as...

  • Deadpool.

  • Boomstick: That crazy lunatic?!

  • Oh, there's no way this symbiote is sane after that!

  • Wiz: It wasn't.

  • Afterward, it bonded with Spider-Man, who experienced this rage and lunacy firsthand.

  • Horrified by this, Spider-Man eventually discarded the symbiote, unaware the alien had determined Spidey was its ideal host and became obsessed with him.

  • Boomstick: Much like Bar Trash Cindy that sometimes you go home with, but never really wanna see her again.

  • So, what do you get when you combine an angry man and a black goo monster both hatefully obsessed with the same guy?

  • Most just call him: Venom.

  • Wiz: Did you know?

  • Eddie came up with the name "Venom" because he felt he was "spewing venom from the tabloids he worked at."

  • Boomstick: Seriously?

  • Ugh, I give that origin a 3 out of 10.

  • Thank God the name's cool at least, and Venom's abilities are even cooler.

  • He's insanely strong, ridiculously agile, and has a fast paced healin' factor; he can power through bullets with no problem at all.

  • Plus, the symbiote carries some of the abilities of its previous owners, including Spidey.

  • That means he can climb on walls and shoot webbin' strong enough that Spidey himself can't break through.

  • Wiz: Technically speaking, Venom simply reproduces the webbing effects via one of his more useful powers: shapeshifting.

  • The symbiote can act as a liquid, allowing it to increase Venom's size for intimidation, or even mimic Eddie's everyday clothing for discretion.

  • Boomstick: Not to mention, Venom can morph into a wingsuit to glide through the air, isolate and purge toxins from the host's body, straight up turn invisible, or simply sprout spikes from simple stabbing weapons!

  • Wiz: With these abilities seemingly limited only by his twisted imagination, Venom has tangled with his world's many heavy hitters.

  • He's defeated Spider-Man without having a host, resisted Ghost Rider's penance stare, and shaken off the Hulk's infamous thunder clap.

  • That's right, he's even taken blows from the Juggernaut and the Hulk!

  • Boomstick: Even if Venom does get injured, the symbiote can rapidly heal its host, from broken bones, impalement through the chest, or even blasts from an anti-tank rocket!

  • He's also so speedy that he can catch up to bullets in mid-flight, but if he doesn't feel like it, he'll just take the shot and spit it back with deadly force.

  • Wiz: He's strong enough to bust down metal doors with his fist, tear apart large military trucks, or throw cars several blocks away.

  • Boomstick: I mean, part of that's gotta be Brock.

  • Have you seen how much that dude can lift?

  • Wiz: Most impressively, Venom once held up a giant carnival ride similar to a ferris wheel even after getting struck by one of his worst weaknesses, a sound gun.

  • Boomstick: A sound gun?

  • That's pretty lame.

  • So I can just beat him if I scream really loud?

  • Wiz: With enough sound or literal firepower, yes, you could force the symbiote to expose the vulnerable host underneath.

  • Though I should note that repeated exposure has helped Venom build up some tolerance.

  • Also, while the symbiote is highly versatile, Venom is not exactly a strategist.

  • Unsurprising given his apparent insanity.

  • Eddie Brock: I like being bad.

  • It makes me happy.

  • Wiz: The symbiote also requires a diet containing the chemical phenethylamine.

  • Boomstick: Phene-what?

  • Does he like, buy that at the store, or...?

  • Wiz: No, it's found in certain fungi, chocolate, and brain matter, which the symbiote greatly hungers for.

  • Boomstick: Oh great, now it eats brains!

  • God this guy is literally a livin' nightmare!

  • Ashley: Eddie, is that you?

  • Venom: There's no more Eddie!

  • And no more symbiote!

  • Only Venom!

  • Wiz: In his personal mission to drive crime from Gotham City.

  • Batman has faced dozens of foes, each more vile and cunning than the last.

  • But none challenged his sheer willpower more than the monstrous man called Bane.

  • Boomstick: Bane's life was screwed from the start.

  • He was born into prison and made to carry out his dead dad's life sentence.

  • Talk about carryin' the sins of your father.

  • I mean, who puts a baby in jail?

  • Couldn't it just like, crawl through the bars?

  • Did they make a baby jail?

  • So many questions.

  • Wiz: The child spent his dawning years in captivity, forced to fend for himself against the cruel and unforgiving world.

  • Then one day, a fateful accident caused something to snap inside him.

  • Boomstick: I'm guessin' his neck.

  • Wiz: No.

  • Well, it should have.

  • Instead, the boy slipped into a coma, where he saw a vision of his future self.

  • A man standing above all other men.

  • Boomstick: Future self told him he would be second to none, so long as he could conquer the power of fear.

  • Which is apparently shaped like a bat.

  • Huh, would you look at that.

  • What're the odds?

  • Wiz: When the child awoke, he began his journey to conquer that fear through the power of bloody murder.

  • Boomstick: Hell yeah!

  • That's also when the prison warden called him a bane to everything holy.

  • Wiz: And that's why he's named Bane.

  • Boomstick: Ugh.

  • 2 out of 10.

  • Anyway, it wasn't long before Bane caught wind of a certain bat ruling Gotham City by fear.

  • But he got to work tryin' to become the ridiculously jacked guy he saw in his dream so he could take down Batman once and for all.

  • Wiz: As he grew up, Bane entered an intense daily workout regimen.

  • Not just of his body, but his mind as well.

  • He educated himself in ten languages, escapology, combat tactics, and several martial arts, including a few he created himself.

  • Boomstick: Bane pretty much became a legend across the prison.

  • So to remind everybody who was in charge, the warden decided to make an example of him.

  • Wiz: See, this place wasn't just a prison.

  • The army of Santa Prisca was conducting tests on human subjects with an experimental formula called: Venom.

  • Boomstick: Because super soldier formula are all the rage.

  • Wiz: The procedure had killed every previous test subject but Bane proved hardier than expected.

  • Boomstick: And after he had a taste, Bane wanted "Venom" for himself.

  • So he faked his own death, punch a few sharks to death and liberated the whole prison single-handed.

  • The inmates joined his cause and he took his new super soldier serum to Gotham City.

  • Wiz: Using a special apparatus on his wrist, Bane can administer a dose of "Venom" directly into his brain at will.

  • Doing so dramatically increases his muscle mass turning him into one of Gotham City's most ferocious physical threats.

  • He's destroyed the Batmobile with his bare hands, jumped off skyscrapers without injury, and lifted loaded armored trucks which weighed tens of thousands of pounds.

  • And then there's the feat he's most famous for:

  • (Bones crushing)

  • Breaking the back of Batman.

  • But Bane didn't just break bone, literally put poor Batman into a coma.

  • Boomstick: Well years later, Batman did get his revenge, after swappin' powers with Superman, he paid Bane a visit, and broke his everythin'.

  • Wiz: And somehow, THIS didn't kill him!

  • Boomstick: He's one tough son of a bitch, and if he needs it, Bane can crank up his Venom for more strength and faster healin'.

  • But when he first tried this, it came at a cost.

  • Wiz: Turns out an overdose of Venom can temporarily deteriorate one's mind, turning Bane into a mindless, muscle-bound beast.

  • Bane: (screams in agony.)

  • Boomstick: And it's also surprisingly addictive, so eventually, Bane swore off the stuff for some time.

  • Wiz: But this only let Bane prove he's just as dangerous even without the performance-enhancing drug.

  • He's been pelted by dozens of bricks at once, and taken countless stabbings and bullets without even reacting.

  • He once cauterized his own wound with a blow torch, and even got thrown hundreds of yards by Elastiwoman and got right back up ready to fight.

  • Boomstick: Still off the juice, Bane is strong enough to tear down a stone prison wall, casually rip off an armored guy's limbs, and take out dozens of members of the League of Assassins, solo!

  • But if he really needs to, he can just fall off the wagon and get back on the Venom.

  • Wiz: Bane's absurd power is only matched by his intelligent mind.

  • He possesses a photographic memory, rivals Ra's Al Ghul in chess, and deduced the identity of Batman in one year when nobody else could figure it out.

  • Boomstick: Yeah, Bane's pretty ridiculous, but it's no secret he's at his best when he's got that Venom juice pumpin' through his veins.

  • Luckily for him, he eventually developed a form of Venom that didn't turn his brain into mush.

  • And then he soon got addicted to that stuff all over again.

  • Wiz: Still, Bane has proven over and over again, that with or without Venom, anyone who crosses him will beg for mercy, and receive none.

  • Bane: When we fought before, I broke the Bat.

  • Today, I break the man.

  • Wiz: All right the combatants are set!

  • Let's end this debate once and for all!

  • Boomstick: But all this strength talk is reminded me I gotta bulk up and the best way to do it, is with a delicious home-cooked meal.

  • Now I'm a man who likes a good home cooked meal but going out to buy or hunt my own food is a hassle.

  • If only there was some way food can be brought straight to me.

  • Wiz: Good news Boomstick introducing: Blue Apron. The #1 fresh food delivery service in the country.

  • Using only the freshest ingredients Blue Apron delivers a kit of ready to cook meals straight to your door along with easy to follow instructions.

  • Bane: Step aside, niños.

  • Thug: It's the Bat!

  • Bane: No...

  • is something...

  • else...

  • Thugs: (screaming)

  • Venom: (laughing)

  • (Continues laughing)

  • (Continues laughing)

  • You're mine!

  • Announcer: FIGHT

  • Venom: Mmm, yummy!

  • Oh your blood's spicy!

  • Delicious...

  • Ooh, big daddy can punch!

  • (laughing)

  • Bane: So you fall back on cheap magic tricks, trying to disappear.

  • Yet you don't know how to be truly invisible.

  • Now I give you permission to die.

  • You're just like all the others...

  • broken!

  • Venom: We're...

  • unbreakable!

  • Bane: No! what's happening!?

  • Venom: Now for what we came for!

  • Pop goes the weasel!

  • Announcer: KO

  • Boomstick: Ewww...That can't taste good.

  • Wiz: Both fighters were intense physical threats, but only one wielded the superior venom.

  • Boomstick: Venom had many advantages over Bane: speed, durability, versatility, and even strength.

  • Wiz: Bane's peak strength was at most just enough to lift a 27 ton car.

  • Meanwhile, Venom was strong enough to stop a falling carnival ride and hold it up by himself, even while in a weakened state.

  • Comparing it to similar carnival rides, my very conservative estimate would place this thing weighing around 200 tons.

  • Boomstick: Way more impressive than anything Bane ever lifted!

  • Wiz: Of course, Bane was smarter, however, even if he had deduced Venom's key weaknesses to fire and sound, he wasn't really equipped to take advantage of them.

  • Boomstick: As for speed, Venom could catch bullets.

  • Even better he could CATCH UP to bullets, in mid-air!

  • He had to move over 1,500 miles per hour to do that.

  • Wiz: Ironically enough, almost twice the speed of sound.

  • Boomstick: Surprisingly, their durability levels were pretty even.

  • Both have taken hits from Superman-level beings and lived to fight another day.

  • Wiz: The big difference being Venom's healing factor was far superior.

  • He could fight on par with Juggernaut, who can make 4.8 magnitude earthquakes with his bare hands!

  • Boomstick: But it's not like Batman ever needed super strength to knock Bane out cold.

  • Wiz: In time, Venom's superior strength, speed, durability, and versatility simply overwhelmed Bane.

  • Boomstick: Looks like Venom was the real "Bane" of this fight.

  • Wiz: The winner is: Venom.

  • Ben: Hey stick around to find out who's coming up next on DEATH BATTLE.
