Angelo Fortunato is the second villain to take on the Venom mantle.
After Angelo quickly made use of his new Venom persona by attacking the school where Peter worked as a teacher and killed one of his former classmates. They finally clashed on the roof, where Angelo appeared to kill Spider-Man by apparently ripping out his heart, however his victim was actually an imposter attempting to profit off Spider-Man pictures. The real Spider-Man decided that Angelo was a coward, the symbiote detached from him in mid-air, and Fortunato fell to a bloody death. Ironically since Angelo damaged them during their fight, Spider-Man's web-shooters couldn't work and he was unable to save him from the fall. Angelo's death had a profound impact on Eddie (as he was responsible for the symbiote) causing him to slit his own wrists in guilt and ultimately lead to his downward spiral.
