    He didn't buy it at the auction. Rather, Don Fortunato did, and bestowed it on his son Angelo, who proved enough of a weakling that the symbiote abandoned him in mid-air. Angelo plunged to his death and the symbiote left under its own power (MK Spider-Man #5-8). Some time later, the symbiote tracked down Mac Gargan, a superior host, and Mac jumped at the chance to get the symbiote's power (MKSM #10). Thus the Scorpion became Venom.

    I think it was meant to be Captain Power, an absurdly silly new villain tied to Byrne's "Chapter One" retcon in which Doctor Octopus and Peter Parker were created in the same accident (Ock's explosion happening because the spider fell into the radiation display).

    In any case, with Chapter One having been removed from continuity by editorial by all accounts -- including direct statements in letters pages -- I'm not sure the Scorpion's weird armor from ASM v.2 #1 or Captain Power even "happened."

    Whatever the status of "official canon," you're not ever going to see it referenced in a Spider-Man comic again, let alone reflected in more recent developments like Gargan getting the Venom symbiote.

So the weird suit-symbiote had nothing to do with Scorpion getting a regular symbiote later? Did they ever explain why "Captain Power" had some kind of symbiote and wanted to kill Peter Parker?
