Marvel vs Capcom/Venom

Introduction

Spider-Man may have escaped the Venom symbiote, but that didn't stop it from latching onto its next victim: Eddie Brock, and in MVC1, they mean business. As the first game appearance in the Marvel series, Venom already packs a lot of force thanks to his great ability for zoning. At any moment, he can seize control of the screen and force the opponent back into the corner, be it the air or on the ground. Venom can poke the enemy out from anywhere on the screen thanks to his robust toolkit, while also playing a great keepout game. Unfortunately, this is also at the expense of Venom's rather low health pool and pretty slow speed that make Venom rely on decent reads and knowing when and where the opponent will be. He'll also have to watch out for himself, being an easy cross-up target whose specials are unsafe on block. It's very easy to lose any momentum Venom has off of one bad read, but past this is a character whose zoning game is practically unparalleled in MVC1. Venom will make any player second guess their choices.

Pros Cons
  • Easy, effective combos
  • Zoning monster
  • Specials and Hypers can OTG
  • Absurd corner carry
  • Back Corner Throw can start a combo off of LK
  • Hyper Combos are unsafe overall
  • Low health
  • Big target, easy to cross-up
  • Slow moves across the board
  • Situational aerials

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Total Hit Adv Block Adv Meter Gain Property
- - - 1 - - - - - Ground/air super

Venom jumps to the middle of the screen and shoots out a large web that catches full-screen. Once it connects, Venom rushes down with a barrage of normals and ends it with a Venom Fang. This super is a must in Venom's punish game, as it allows him to react to almost anything, especially so thanks to its invulnerability frames that let him outright bypass the opponent at points. He is still momentarily vulnerable when he's centered on the screen though. If blocked, Venom will fall straight down from the center so it's much easier to punish him for it. Combos for this super are pretty much non-existent due to its startup, so it's strictly a punish super. Also keep in mind, the super is only active for one frame. The damage is very high though, and it will carry the opponent pretty far into the corner, making it a risk worth taking if you have a read.

Death Bite

Death Bite

Damage Guard Startup Active Recovery Total Hit Adv Block Adv Meter Gain Property
- - - - - - - - - Ground super

Venom does an extended version of his Venom Rush which can carry the opponent to the other side of the screen, into the corner. The startup is fully invincible, and for whatever reason has its own hitbox, but the rest of the attack is just Venom Rush with much bigger hitboxes that loops into itself until it travels off-screen. Overall another solid super that can shut out any attempt to approach Venom, while also acting as a reversal. Not as easy to react with whenever the opponent flinches as with Venom Web, but is much better for combos than Venom Web for simply starting up much faster. The ground control Venom gains from this is not quite as threatening as Venom Web though, which gives Venom control of the entire screen, albeit it is also a little safer.
