The last heroes of 2099 finally discover how much worse the Savage Avengers can become as part of Ultron’s twisted cybernetic army.

The following contains major spoilers for Savage Avengers #9, on sale now from Marvel Comics.

The Savage Avengers have uncovered a whole new kind of weaponized Anti-Venom.

Savage Avengers #9 by writer David Pepose (Avengers Unlimited Infinity Comic, Scout’s Honor) and artist Carlos Magno (Predator, Captain America: Cold War Alpha) finds the last remaining heroes of 2099 facing down the full might of Ultron’s army. As Jake Gallows, aka the Punisher, and the Deathlok formerly known as Miles Morales battle on, they are confronted by grotesque, cybernetic versions of their former teammates. This includes Flash Thompson, better known as Agent Anti-Venom, whose fangs have become even more lethal now thanks to their newfound projectile status.

Flash Thompson has been a mainstay of the Marvel Universe since his introduction all the way back in 1962’s Amazing Fantasy #15 by creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko. Formerly the high school bully of Peter Parker, Flash goes on to become a decorated war hero. After losing his legs on the battlefield, he’s offered the chance to become the host to the Venom symbiote as part of a new super-soldier program.

Eventually, Flash’s symbiote would be transformed into the second iteration of Anti-Venom, which has served him well throughout major events such as King in Black. Flash’s Codex continued to fight back from within the symbiote Hive, even after his death. Together with Eddie Brock, Flash discovered the means by which he could resurrect himself as a being of pure symbiote, effectively giving the Savage Avengers’ resident super-soldier immortality on top of his other abilities.

Though this new transformation adds another killer edge to both Anti-Venom and Ultron’s forces, it isn’t the first that the symbiote has undergone throughout the series. During the now-reanimated heroes’ last battle with Ultron, the sight of Flash’s demise caused Tandy Bowen aka Dagger, to discover the power of the latent Anti-Venom symbiote within her. This culminated in a new Dagger symbiote, which couldn’t save either of them from the Ultron of 2099.
