Anyway, Anti-Venom is a character I was unfamiliar with until I saw an action figure of him in 2015. Turns out, I've known who he is my whole life.
Flash Thompson, one-time nemesis and later friend of Peter Parker became a superhero in his own right when the Venom symbiote bonded with him, creating a new version of the character that calls himself Agent Venom, Anti-Venom, and most cleverly, Agent Anti-Venom.**
He has a white design, with a black spider, and a neat face with black and white and red, like this:
I had a used 2015 T-Rex (from a used lot I bought last year with various loose dinos in it) that I grabbed to paint.
First thing was to cover it in white.
And wow, the head makes all the difference.
Dude, the red eyes and black teeth totally lend themselves to a T-Rex's head shape. It looks awesome!
Next up was to paint the spider . . . which was the least-successful part of the custom.
Best picture so far:
And here's the final product:
Here he is squaring off against the Carnage Indoraptor:
And here's all three together:
I don't know where to go from here, except that I still have two more 2015 T-Rexes. Hmmm.
*I did a little research just now, and I read that Flash can only be merged with the symbiote for a short time before it starts to take over, and he begins murdering people. I can totally get behind a story like that.
