The weekly installments have helped keep my interest peeked about this Marvel oddball Vegas team up. The numbering still bothers me. Is this team up a reaffirmation of Secret Avengers? Venom and Rulk become allies during this weekly cross over, but I don’t know what impact that will have on any other title. Isn’t Ghost Rider still cancelled?  Damion Hellstrom and Doctor Strange are the two unlisted members in the cross-over which is odd since each have their own cult followings and they seem integral to stopping the demons from spreading away from Vegas.

What happens in Vegas is having trouble staying in Vegas. Venom Ghost Rider (or two), Rulk, and X-23 have had to fight their own metaphorical demons as well as the literal demons escaping from Hell in this team up.

Venom #13.4 by Rick Remender and Lan Medina, hitting the stands last week, brings more creative talent to this team up extravaganza. Even with the host of artists working on these six issues, the look has been well executed to stay consistent.

#13.4 also has the independent characters realizing to that they need to team up.

X-23 has already faced off with genetically manipulated clones of herself wearing genetically manipulated symbiote suits. Hopefully those make a come back sometime in a future comic somewhere. They were interesting designs. I don’t want them to be one-and-done bad guys.

Now, the Venom symbiote and the Spirit of Vengeance have been melded. A recurring idea in this series is the odd pairings.  They have a fun “What If…” vibe but work fine in the quick series. This is a fun team-up although my guess is that it won’t change the Marvel Universe.

Concluding in Venom #14 by Rick Remender and Tony Moore this week.  Remender and Moore have shared the by-line on Venom before.

  • Hell is spreading across the Earth from out of Las Vegas.
  • Ghost Rider is responsible but what price is she willing to pay to save mankind?!
  • X-23, Venom & Hulk must defeat their worst enemies, buying Ghost Rider time to stop hell’s march across the globe!
  • As a clone, X-23 has often wondered if she has a soul. This is where she gets her answer!
  • Who is Ichor and why has he targeted Venom for Death?!
