Who is it?

This article contains massive spoilers for Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. So read on at your own risk.

Venom’s Identity Revealed in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2

Harry Osborne is Venom in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2. I know this isn’t exactly a surprise after the tease at the end of Marvel’s Spider-Man 1. However, it’s not as simple as Harry showing up as Venom. It’s a slow burn that happens over the course of the game.

Of course, we know that Peter also gets the Symbiote, which affects his behavior. While we won’t break down every story beat found in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, it’s a journey worth taking.

Even if the end result is predictable, it’s far less about who Venom is, and how and why it happened in the first place.

Spider-Man 2 takes its time to get there and makes you feel a strong bond between Harry and Peter.

As we already know from previous iterations of the Symbiote, we know that it is an alien lifeform not from Earth. How did it get here? Why is it being used on Harry at the end of the first game? All of these questions and more will be answered in your playthrough of Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.

There are plenty of other mysteries to uncover, like who sent all of those pesky Spiderbots to New York.
