Chapter One



Marvel owns Spiderman and Venom, BTVS is owned by Mutant Enemy

Timeframe: Xander’s roadtrip and after Spiderman separates the symbiote from him.

A/N: This little muse has been nagging me since I finished reading “What If Venom had possessed the Punisher.”

In one Universe, the symbiote that was Spiderman’s costume bonds with Eddie Brock to become Venom; who is one of Spiderman’s most difficult foes. In another Universe, it bonds with Alexander “Xander” Harris, let us see how that unfolds. Says the Watcher.

Xander had been taken pretty far by his road trip even though he would have to cut it short since school started in less than a week. He wanted to get back kind of early and chill before the slayage and school started.

He entered a church in New York and began to pray to try to reconnect with God after being away for so long when he felt a cold weight on his shoulder and a voice in his mind.

“Help we survive.” The Voice said.

“Who are you?” Xander thought back.

He was accustomed to having mental conversations due to the Hyena and the Soldier incarnations in his head. Since he hadn’t specified a certain era or nationality he had quite a collection from a Spartan to someone in Desert Storm although he had more detail in the American ones.

“We are suit. We are Spider suit.” The Voice said.

“Alright, what is one more voice in my head? Welcome Spider suit to the Menagerie. Don’t try to take over my mind or there will be problems.” Xander thought back.

“We won’t.” The Voice says as it integrates with Xander.

Xander suddenly experiences more information. He knows he can take a census of the church mice- or cockroaches-if he wants to. Things start to flood in that the thing hates the candles and the bells.

Xander continues to pray and a minute later gets up before heading over to the statue of the Virgin Mary and kneeling.

“Hail Mary, full of grace the Lord is with you. Blessed are you among women and blest is the fruit of you womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God; pray for us sinners now and at the hour of death. Amen.” He prays and then rises and heads back to his car.

He starts the ignition and heads off towards Sunnydale.

Meanwhile in Xander’s Mindscape

The Hyena and the generic soldier have cornered the symbiote.

“Listen newbie, we don’t care what Xander said, if you even think of harming the Pup we will shred you psychically. Wounds like that force the body into a vegetative state that few recover from. Do you understand?” The Primal growls, while the soldier twirls his kukri, expertly.

“We understand.” The symbiote whimpers.

“Good, now we understand you crave Vengenance. Spiderman is not doable as we reside across the country. However, the Pup has a more doable target; all vampires. As long as you use a little restraint; we can feed your Rage. As for your food needs well we can encourage the Pup and his associates to find an acceptable substitute.” The Hyena said as it walked beside the symbiote.
