Lee Price (Marvel)
Lee Price is a male comic character that features in Marvel Comics.
This led to Price calling forth the remaining aspects of his Symbiote back into him where they merged to become a gigantic Venom form. With his large body, he was able to overpower his foes despite them working together to contain him. This was until Black Cat realised that Maniac could no longer re-infect them as their bodies had developed an immunity after being purged of the Symbiote. Spider-Man then added those anti-bodies to Anti-Venom's where the vigilantes gave an opening for Flash Thompson to plunge into Maniac's body. The strike damaged the giant Symbiote causing it to explode with much of the bio-mass being lost though a fraction of it remained within the defeated Lee Price. He was then taken into custody though he retained a portion of his Symbiote that remained bonded to him. (Amazing Spider-Man: Venom Inc. Omega v1 #1) Lee came to be at Ryker's Island penitentiary where he headed a small gang that worked alongside him in the prison. During this time, Eddie Brock was seemingly arrested and placed at Ryker's with Price confronting him. It was then revealed that Brock was actually Cletus Kasady using his Carnage Symbiote to disguise himself as Eddie. He dealt a fatal blow into Price and ripped out his Symbiote in order to merge with it leaving Lee seemingly to die as his body was dependent on the creature. Kasady then went on a rampage as he declared that Knull was coming to Earth. (Free Comic Book Day 2019 Spider-Man/Venom)
