History in the comics
Anne Weying was Eddie Brock's ex-wife and a successful lawyer. Due to her close relation to his enemy, she assisted Spider-Man by sharing some of Eddie's history. When Spider-Man chased Venom into an amusement park and to find his parents, she followed. She confronted Eddie and managed to convince him to give up his vendetta. On another occasion, Sin-Eater shot Anne. To save her life, an alien symbiote temporarily bonded with her. She used her newly bonded being to attack her aggressors. Eddie saw her attack them and was afraid for and of her and compelled the symbiote back to him. Anne vomited upon seeing the pile of bodies she had left behind. She screamed, "That thing made me do that!" Eddie replied, "It can't make you do anything you don't really want to do."
Later, the police arrested Anne on a false charge (unrelated to Anne's rampage above) in order to trap her husband, Venom. Anne used her one phone call to warn Eddie not to come. Venom promised that Eddie wouldn't and sent his symbiote through the phone lines to her. After it bonded with her she was able to free herself from prison.
Months later, Anne saw saw Spider-Man in an older black costume at a time when his regular red and blue suit had been stolen. She was still upset by the experience of bonding with the symbiote months earlier and unable to deal with the return of Eddie Brock into her life. This, coupled with Brock's transformation into Venom directly in front of her as he ran off to kill Spider-Man sent her over the edge, and she lept from her high rise apartment to her death.
Powers and weaknesses
By wearing the symbiote, Anne Weying possessed all the powers of Spider-Man (possibly beacuse the symbiote was able to copy Spider-Man's powers). She-Venom could crawl on walls, has super strength and agility, and could naturally fire webbing from her hands without the use of a web shooter.
Because the symbiote attemptd to bond with Spider-Man's DNA but failed it was able to negate Spider-Man's spider sense. This means that Spider-Man's spider sense will not activate when She-Venom is near.
Anne could also make the symbiote transform into normal street clothes.
The Venom symbiote is naturally weakened by intense sounds and intense sonic waves.
The symbiote can also be weakened by fire.
- She-Venom was released as part of the Spider-Man toy line but did not appear in Spider-Man: The Animated Series.
- The action figure was named Bride of Venom instead of She-Venom.
