Marvel Legends - AGONY!

Marvel Legends Venom Multipack: Venom, Agony, and Riot -  Hasbro 2022

Yet again (and in a very short timeframe) Hasbro has given me another of my most-wanted Marvel Legends figures. There has always been something special about Marvel's symbiote mythos. The dialogue between alien and host is a dynamic and original storytelling technique that only works in comic form. In 1993, in the pages of Venom: Lethal Protector, there were five new symbiotes introduced as experimental super-soldiers from the dubious Life Foundation - they were all spawns of Venom and in an unexpected twist for the time, two of the five were female: Scream and Agony. But for some reason all the merchandising ignored Agony. Scream got a ToyBiz figure in 1996, a Mini-Mate, a Heroclix, a Funko Pop, a Nano Metal, and even a Legends figure in 2018. I truly never thought there would be an Agony action figure in my collection, but I couldn't be happier with the results. I'm also happy that this Amazon exclusive three-pack came with Riot and a great new Venom. Let's check out Agony below!

I'm a sucker for monochromatic figures and Agony is a glorious blaze of purples and pinks. I love her.

Agony's only accessory is an alternate pair of hands.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here is the Venom boxset members together: Venom, Agony, and Riot.

Here she is with my other female symbiote, Scream. (I forgot to include Gwenom).

And here are all my symbiotes together. From Left to Right: Lasher, Scream, Venom, Carnage, Riot, Agony, and Phage. (I'm (intentionally) missing Toxin, Poison, any anti-symbiotes, and various venomized heroes like Miles and Gwen).
