> Was the prisoner angle established in Planet of the Symbiotes? It was imprisoned because it wanted to bond with its hosts instead of taking them over? I didn't like that angle at all, how they turned the symbiotes into an evil race.
YES! Spot on Pengi that's the stuff!
The Venom symbiote wanted to work with the host rather than just take them over completely.
I don't think that was the right call either to just say symbiote = evil but, having said that I can see how they came to that conclusion given how the symbiotes amplify aggression.
