The Amazing Spider-Man #300 (1988)
Writer: David Michelinie
Artist: Todd McFarlane
Venom leaves and Spider-Man arrives home to a rattled Mary Jane. She tells him what happened and he suspects his old alien costume. Mary Jane says they need to move to a new apartment because she can’t stay here any longer after what happened and so they move to a condo at Bedford Towers. Spider-Man sees Venom swinging through the city and goes after him. They fight as Venom explains that he’s Eddie Brock, a reporter who wrote a story about who the Sin-Eater was, only for Spider-Man to reveal somebody else as the real Sin-Eater. He ruined Eddie’s career and Eddie sought solace in a church. Then, Spider-Man’s suit came down and bonded with Eddie. Their hatred for Spider-Man was equal. Venom webs Spider-Man to the inside of the bell of the very same church where it all happened. Spider-Man manages to break free and weakens Venom enough and knocks him out. He then takes him to the Fantastic Four building where The Thing puts Venom in a special chamber that keeps him docile. Mary Jane can’t stand Spidey’s black suit now and he burns it and puts on the old red and blue one.
