Thanks so much for watching! Definitely look more into the weird animal relationships I mention if you're interested (show notes). Life may find a way, but those ways are usually delightfully weird. See you in Footnotes, and tomorrow on the livestream! -- KH

You have addressed issues with Venom and Hulk increasing in size. Can you apply the Banach-Tarski Paradox to solve where their additional mass comes from?

I've always thought of the 3 symbiosis categories to be more like a circle. So it would be like parasite to commensalism, to mutualism to parasite. So the bird you mentioned ( the Yellow billed Ox pecker) would be on the verge of mutualism and parasitism.

Venom isn't just the symbiote, Venom is both Eddie and the symbiote and the hatred of spiderman is what brought them together, if another person wears the symbiote it's not venom.

In the old comics, before Marvel retconned everything to hell. Venom was a freak born among a race of parasites, the parasites were interstellar conquerors who traveled from planet to planet draining the life out of their victims. The parasites were absolutely disgusted by Venom's desire for a bond and they considered Venom a mistake. Venom was sealed away and exiled, only to later be found by Spider-man on the battle world during the secret wars.

another detail you left out is that the VENOM symbiote actually uses cancer cells to preform cell replication. So, in theory a VENOM symbiote would be an effective cure to cancer as long as it is bonded.
