He is woken up by Dr. Amanda Waller and intern, Felicia Hardy. Waller wants him arrested for trespassing, but Felicia vouches for him. Felicia later confronts him and asks what he was doing. He simply replies "It's complicated."

While he is away, he discovers he can climb walls and his strength is greatly increased. To test this, he begins running across rooftops.

Peter follows her and easily catches her. He unmasks her and sees Felicia. She freaks out and rips his mask off. They are both to shocked for words. Instead, they simply lean in and kiss.

Peter with the symbiote.

Peter discovered another one of his father's projects labeled 'The Suit'. Peter tested it, but he learned the suit was sentient and it bonded with Peter. It increased his abilities. With Felicia on vacation, she could not tell him to get rid of it. He didn't want to. But the symbiote quickly began taking him over. It made him commit crimes without even knowing. When Felicia returned from Canada, she battled this "New Spider-Man" in a belltower and got the suit away from him by ringing the bell. He helped her by ringing it at the same time, driving the suit away, where it would find Eddie Brock. The public simply assumed that the new villain calling himself Venom was simply the same evil Spider-Man that had formerly been committing crimes. Eventually Spider-Man and Black cat were able to defeat Venom.
