Marvel has revealed new symbiote hero named Kid Venom as part of its upcoming Death of the Venomverse comic event.
Who is Kid Venom?
Kid Venom, whose real name is Kintaro, was created by manga artist Taigami, who also created the manga series Unsung Hero. Kintaro comes from 10th century Japan and originally bonded with the symbiote Clinter in order to protect his village from other hostile symbiotes.
The character will appear in Marvel‘s Death of the Venomverse #2, which is written by Cullen Bunn, David Michelinie, and Taigami and illustrated by Justin Mason and Taigami. Taigami will also be writing and drawing backup stories about the character that will further flesh him out and expand upon his story.
