The Guardians Of The Galaxy Are Journeying To The Planet Of The Symbiotes!

Releasing this November Guardians of the Galaxy #21 will begin a three issue arc entitled “Planet Of The Symbiotes.”  Written by Brian Michael Bendis with art by Valerio Schiti, the plot will follow Star Lord and his crew arriving upon a planet populated by the symbiotes who first appeared in Secret Wars crossover as Spider-Man’s new costume.  Where the Symbiote came from has been a secret ever since, despite multiple characters wearing the ‘Venom costume.’  Brian Michael Bendis came up with the story based upon the following:

I looked it up and I was like no, there’s been a planet we’ve seen taken over by symbiotes, but have we not seen the planet of the symbiotes? I called Tom Brevoort ( Marvel Senior Vice President ), I go, could it be that even in the craziness of the ’90s when it was Venom, Venom, Venom every five seconds, that this story has not been told? And he goes, yeah we’ve never been there. And I’m like, now I have to do it! It’s crazy.

If anyone deserves to ride the success of Guardians of the Galaxy its Bendis, who was active in the film’s production as a consultant years before James Gunn became involved.  I look forward to this arc, and wonder why no one got around to explaining the Symbiote until now.

    Actually there was a Spider-Man crossover in ’95 called “Planet of the Symbiotes” so this isn’t really anything new. Surprising that no one at Marvel knew remembers this.

      That story centers around the invasion of Earth by an army of symbiotes and the efforts of Venom, Spider-Man, and Scarlet Spider to stop them. In this coming Guardians of the Galaxy arc it will be about the actual planet they come from.

        Well in that story didn’t they go to a planet full of symbiotes as well as tell the origin of Eddie’s symbiote?

        • Daniel Rivera

          They did go to another planet but it wasn’t the origin planet of the symbiotes, it was a world conquered by the symbiotes. Regardless I can’t wait to read more about the symbiotes in the coming issue.
