"Yes, I'm sure. Crime-Master's coming after my friends and family, and now he's hired the extra muscle to do it."
Red Hulk scoffs. Helping the kid protect his precious little girlfriend from afar was not exactly how he had imagined his Saturday night would go. Flash Thompson just ignores him, focused completely on Betty Brant's apartment and what dangers it may soon face. "I've managed to get my sister and mom out of town for the time being, so Betty's the one most at risk of getting attacked now." Suddenly, the building they are camped on top of shakes.
Some sort of creature flies through the ground. Flash and Rulk instinctively leap out of harm's way. The creature, now on the spot where they were standing on mere moments ago, is grotesque in appearance, boasting razor-sharp teeth and a freakishly long tongue. Its crimson hide turns to face Flash.
Good thing Flash had his suit on, because the shock on his face behind his mask is probably embarassing enough even when it isn't seen by Red Hulk. "Th-that's the Toxin symbiote! But how did Crime-Master find a suitable host so qui- Brock. Eddie Brock. I left him behind back then. With him."
"Real smooth, Corporal." Rulk smirks as he charges towards the new hostile, glad that he finally has something to beat up on this boring night. But he is interrupted. By a raging pillar of fire, forceful enough to send even him flying backwards. Toxin screams in agony as it is torched.
"You just killed that couple down there! And now you shall know their vengeance, creature!" The Ghost Rider emerges from the same hole Toxin was sent flying through, chains in hand and bike ever menacing in appearance. He continues to scorch the creature with a shower of hellfire. Venom snaps out of his confusion.
"NO! Ghost Rider! Stop! Whatever Eddie did, he's not in control of the symbiote! It's not his fault! Please, I may need his help!"
The alter ego of Johnny Blaze turns to Venom. "It is too late for that. This thing, be it man or monster, has spilled innocent blood, and for that he must pay. Feel the wrath of divine punishment, you monstrosity!" A red, colossal arm smashes the Ghost Rider's flaming head into the ground.
"You heard the kid, hothead. We need ugly over here, so why don't you just run along now and you won't get the ***-whooping I am tempted as hell to give you right n- URGH!" An uppercut to the jaw shuts him up abruptly.
Right now, Johnny Blaze is the one in control of the GR, not Zarathos. Zarathos will not at any time during this match take control of the Spirit Of Vengeance. Red Hulk and Venom are both in prime condition, with Flash having his usual arsenal of weapons with him.
