Venom 2 Why Did The Cops Eyes Turn Blue?
- Pieter Maas
Who is the blue-eyed cop in Venom: Let There Be Carnage? By Alex Wiggan If you’ve watched the big budget comic book movie, Venom: Let There Be Carnage, you will know the story at the heart of the movie is fairly straight forward. Eddie Brock/Venom has to take on a new bad guy in the form of Cletus Kasady/Carnage, who in turn has some assistance from his girlfriend Frances Barrison/Shriek, and this is pretty much the film in a nutshell.
- But as you were watching Venom: Let There Be Carnage, did you find yourself questioning one specific scene in the movie – a scene which didn’t make a great deal of sense? And did that scene involve a police detective and his glowing blue eyes? I thought so.
- Well, don’t worry, you’re not alone, as this scene with the cop was a little confusing, and it certainly threw a few audiences.
In a moment, I will explain what that scene was all about, but before I get to that, let me first recap the scene, just to make sure we are all on the same page. Image: ©Sony Pictures/Marvel Entertainment Towards the end of Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Cletus Kasady and Frances Barrison make their way to a church to get married. To accompany them in the ceremony, they kidnap Eddie Brock’s ex-girlfriend, Anne Weying, as well as a cop, Police Detective Mulligan.
- But just as the ceremony begins to take place, Eddie Brock shows up, disrupts the wedding and gets into a tussle with Cletus/Carnage.
- As this event unfolds, Frances then busies herself by getting into a fight with Detective Mulligan, which takes place high up on the church spire.
- As the fight between Eddie/Venom and Cletus/Carnage progresses, the pair make their way up to the spire, where Carnage gets the upper hand on Venom.
He attacks his adversary multiple times, and it is clear to Eddie/Venom they will not survive this encounter. It is at this moment Eddie/Venom gets an idea: to use sound against Carnage. Sound is a weakness for both Venom and Carnage, so if Eddie/Venom can create a loud enough sound, it may be enough of a distraction to stop Carnage from landing a finishing blow.
- Seizing the moment, Venom lashes out and pushes Frances off the spire of the church.
- As she falls, she screams out in anger, releasing her super power, which is a sonic scream.
- The scream hits both Venom and Carnage and causes them to fall off the roof of the church.
- After they hit the ground, Eddie/Venom is able to recover quickly enough to kill both Cletus and Carnage.
Moments later, the action moves back up to the church spire, where Detective Mulligan remains. As the camera closes in on the detective, Mulligan’s eyes light up blue and he mutters the word “monsters”, leaving the suggestion that something has happened to him during the battle. Image: ©Sony Pictures/Marvel Entertainment Detective Mulligan’s eyes light up blue in Venom: Let There Be Carnage because in this very (very) brief scene, it is implied that Mulligan has become the host to a new symbiote. The symbiote in this instance is Toxin – one of the many symbiotes from the Marvel Universe. Image: ©Sony Pictures/Marvel Entertainment During the scene in which Eddie/Venom and Cletus/Carnage are hit by Frances Barrison’s scream, the symbiotes are momentarily separated from their hosts. It is during this scene that a new symbiote is spawned, which then attaches itself to Mulligan (off screen). Image: ©Marvel Comics For comic book fans, this all happened in the pages of Venom/Carnage, all the way back in 2004. The implication here, is that Mulligan’s ‘infection’ is being set up for a future sequel. So, why does Mulligan suddenly get blue eyes in Venom: Let There Be Carnage ? Because he has been infected with a symbiote. : Who is the blue-eyed cop in Venom: Let There Be Carnage?

Film – A variation of Patrick Mulligan appears in the live-action Sony’s Spider-Man Universe film Venom: Let There Be Carnage, portrayed by Stephen Graham, This version is a detective for the San Francisco Police Department who wears a hearing aid due to a past encounter with Frances Barrison while working as an officer.

Venom 2: Blue Eyes Sets Up Another Symbiote For Potential Sequel We know. You’ve seen Venom: Let There Be Carnage, or have read about the mid-credits scene, where Venom, along with Eddie Brock (Tom Hardy) are set up for a multiversal collision with everyone’s favourite neighbourhood superhero, but if you paid close attention, the end of the movie teases a new character for a potential sequel.
- * Spoilers ahead *
- At the end of the film, after a church showdown between Venom, Carnage (Woody Harrelson) and Shriek (Naomie Harris), the Lethal Protector departs the city, but not before the film reveals the final fate of Detective Pat Mulligan – the cop responsible for Shriek’s bad eye and the one hunting down serial killer Cletus Kasady.
- After suffering a beatdown at the hands of Shriek, we see Mulligan’s eyes glow blue.
One likely reason for this, is that a symbiote has been implanted in him. somehow. In the comics, Detective Patrick Mulligan is host to the third symbiote introduced in Spider-Man lore, Toxin, As the spawn of Carnage, this new symbiote is half red (from the waist up) and black (from the waist down), sharing the colour scheme of his genetic elders.
- Toxin also happens to be the 1,000th symbiote of this particular genetic line, with the potential to become more powerful than Carnage and Venom combined, though there is fear that this new symbiote can potentially become psychotic and violent as well.
- While Toxin has played both ally and villain to Spider-Man in the comics, audiences should know that when first bonded with Patrick Mulligan, Toxin was young and naive, and subscribed to Mulligan’s more heroic tendencies.
- Since the end of the original Venom introduced and teased Carnage, it seems lazy and repetitive that the end of this sequel would tease yet another symbiote, but given that the first symbiote was somewhat neurotic and the second was psychotic, it puts a different spin to actually have a heroic symbiote grace the big screen.

Is Toxin stronger than Carnage?
Powers – Toxin possesses the powers of its parent, but to a greater extent. In addition, it seems to have a much stronger resistance to sonic waves and intense heat than Carnage. When bonded to Patrick Mulligan, it had a slim and streamlined appearance closely resembling Spider-Man, complete with a red and dark blue or black coloration.
- When upset or aggressive, it becomes much larger and he gets even stronger, growing vicious fangs and long, curving claws.
- When bonded to Eddie Brock, Toxin initially appeared all-red and massive, but after recovering from being burnt, it became red and black.
- Following Eddie being recruited by the FBI, the Toxin symbiote has taken on the appearance of black and red body armor, apparently in emulation of Agent Venom,
After bonding to Bren Waters, it took on a mixture of Patrick and Eddie’s forms.
Superhuman Strength : He possesses vast superhuman strength, and at the time of its birth it was stronger than Carnage and Venom combined were. Depending on how angry or upset he gets, he can grow to a much larger size, with large claws and vicious fangs. His strength extends to his legs allowing him to leap heights and distances impossible for a normal human. Superhuman Speed : He can move or run at speeds greater than any normal human being. Superhuman Stamina : He can exert himself at peak capacity for at least 48 hours until fatigue impairs him. Superhuman Agility : His agility is superior to any normal human being. Superhuman Reflexes : His reflexes are far superior to those of any normal human being. Superhuman Durability : He is much more resistant to injury than Spider-Man, Venom and Carnage combined but still has the traditional symbiote weaknesses, although to a much smaller degree. The tissue the symbiote is composed of renders Brock’s body much harder and far more resistant to physical injury than the body of an ordinary human. Brock can withstand high caliber bullets, great impact forces, powerful energy blasts, and falls from great heights without sustaining physical injury. He is durable enough that he can withstand multiple barrages of high caliber weapons such as machine guns from close range completely unperturbed, can withstand blows from superhuman beings such as Wrecker, Spider-Man, Carnage, etc. unharmed. He also possesses an extreme resistance to pain, and seems to feel it only to a certain extent. Genetic Memory : The symbiote possesses some limited psychic ability, making it capable of obtaining information from its hosts and even other people and symbiotes simply by touch. It can, however, be forced to forget information if the symbiote is inflicted with heavy trauma. Offspring Detection: The symbiote is capable of psychically detecting its offspring, however, with effort, this ability can be blocked. Spider-Sense : Brock is also granted an extrasensory ability similar to Spider-Man’s spider-sense. This response is not as complicated as Spider-Man’s inherent sense since the alien costume can detect danger from every direction and conduct Brock in plenty of time. It’s a lot more efficient than Spider-Man’s spider-sense because it is more specific as to where the danger is. Immunity to Spider-Man’s Spider-Sense : Due to Spider-Man being a host to the Toxin symbiote’s predecessor, Toxin is able to bypass Spider-Man’s spider-sense. As such, he is capable of attacking Spider-Man without alerting him, making him a very deadly opponent. Constituent-Matter Generation: Toxin can also use the same substance comprising the symbiote in the form of constituent black matter, and he can generate tentacle-like appendages from various parts of his body, which he often uses either in combat situations or to restrain someone. Shape Alteration : Toxin can manipulate his matter to enlarge or stretch his body in order to augment his attacks. He can morph sections of his body, such as his hands or feet, into spikes, blades, axes or a shield. Toxin also has the ability to manifest wings in order to fly.
Stretching and deforming: Although it’s widely known that the symbiote can stretch and reform itself, recently it was able to perform this ability whilst bonded with a human host.
Regeneration : He is capable of healing injuries in the host at an exceptionally fast rate. The symbiote is even capable of healing injuries and illness that current human medical care cannot such as cancer. Camouflage : The symbiote is capable of mimicking the appearance of any form of clothing, camouflaging with its surroundings, and even mimicking other people. Wallcrawling : Much like Spider-Man, Toxin has the ability to cling to virtually any surface. He can rapidly crawl, walk, or run across even slick/wet surfaces. Organic Webbing : Toxin can project an unlimited, powerful, organic web-like substance similar to the webbing Spider-Man has (which takes on a shape of thick red and blue tendrils like the chains of Ghost Rider ). He typically uses this webbing to swing from building to building or as a means of immobilizing someone. The webbing is incredibly strong. Poisonous Fangs : An ability developed by Brock when he bonded with the symbiote. Toxin’s fangs not only intimidate foes but deliver a powerful, toxic bite. Tracking : Toxin can track anyone, not just other symbiotes, as long as he has something to pick up a scent.

Sony Pictures That’s speculation from us for now though, so watch this space for further updates on its release date.
How did Venom give birth to a red one?
Why is Carnage Red? – In the comics, Carnage’s origins happen in a way that seems simple on the surface. After Venom broke through the prison cell that held his host Eddie Brock, a small piece of the symbiote was left behind. That piece soon bonded with Cletus Kasady, Brock’s cellmate.
Once he came into contact with it, the two bonded, and Carnage was born. However, it is the way in which Kasady merges with the symbiote that gives Carnage his unique coloring. Rather than bonding through exterior means the way Eddie and Venom did, the symbiote merged with Cletus through his bloodstream.
Specifically, the alien found its way into Cletus through a cut in his hand. What resulted was not only a stronger bond between the two of them but a more chaotic one as well. This is why Carnage is more powerful than Venom, and it is also why he looks the way he does.
The red hue and unstable, fluid-like design of the character is meant to represent its fusion with Kasady’s blood. This strange connection to the color red and its association with blood goes well beyond Carnage’s origins. When looking through the character’s long history, many of the stories and themes surrounding the villain take this fact into account.
In Amazing Spider-Man #361, the issue in which Spider-Man first encounters Carnage, the villain wrote his name in blood at each crime scene. Along with this, there was the “Maximum Carnage ” story arc, where Kasady had his blood drawn by a doctor while at the Ravencroft Institute, who hoped to “cure” him of his madness.
Why is Toxin symbiote so strong?
Carnage’s bloody campaign has just dragged in his own offspring, but he just learned why his offspring Toxin is more powerful than he will ever be, WARNING: The following contains major spoilers for Extreme Carnage: Toxin, available now from Marvel Comics. Extreme Carnage has seen the titular villain claw his way up from the darkest depths all the way to one of the highest seats of power in the United States; government.
- Though his scheme has been a slow burn, the horror has been moving at a blistering pace thanks to Carnage’s growing personal symbiote army.
- Like so many others before him, Toxin has just become the latest symbiote to hear Carnage’s murderous siren call.
- Unlike the rest, however, Toxin has actually managed to turn away from it, proving that at least in this instance the apple can fall pretty far from the tree.
Young Bren Waters, the current host of the Toxin symbiote, is still coming to terms with the prevailing anti-alien sentiment. Unfortunately, the fact that his father is counted among Alchemax’s numbers doesn’t do anything to quell his concerns. As he rides his bike, he and the symbiote discuss their relationship as well as Toxin’s with the world at large right now. In the Void, Toxin finds the remains of those who Carnage used to bring the Life Foundation symbiotes back into his murderous fold. As surprised as Carnage is to see that his spawn was alive, Toxin is equally shocked that his father made it back to the land of the living after being torn to shreds by Eddie Brock,
Carnage makes it clear that he isn’t worried about anything Eddie is up to, though he is worried about the way Toxin has been eschewing the bloody legacy that he inherited. As far as Carnage is concerned, his offspring’s time has been wasted on sympathetic hosts who have made him weak. As seen in Extreme Carnage: Toxin by Steve Orlando, Gerardo Sandoval, Danilo S.
Beyruth, Victor Nava, Chris Sotomayor and VC’s Cory Petit, that couldn’t be further from the truth. In fact, it is the bonds that Toxin has made with his human hosts that have made him strong enough to stave off Carnage’s onslaught, saving both his own body as well as Bren’s life. Throughout his entire history, Toxin has been beaten down and battered at almost every turn, but never by his hosts. Patrick Mulligan instilled in Toxin a sense of duty and a moral code that he has almost never wavered from, and Eddie Brock reinforced his sense of purpose.
Is Toxin stronger than Anti-Venom?
Anti-Venom has complete immunity to sonics and fire and can completely get rid of the Toxin symbiote entirely. However, Toxin’s powers are the same as Anti-Venom’s but to a much greater level. While Toxin would lose in a fight against Anti-Venom, Toxin would win in a competition of who is stronger.
