(Monsters Unleashed III#8 (fb) - BTS) - From another reality, a version of Fin Fang Foom, that had been taken over by a symbiote and then a Poison, joining the Hive of other Poisons, all of whom had the goal of consuming life forms throughout the Multiverse. With the Poison Thanos in charge, Foom scanned the cosmos and found himself mentally connected to Kid Kaiju on Earth-616, a boy who could draw monsters and summon them. Foom began mentally influencing Kawade, knowing that if he could convince the boy to draw him, then he would be summoned to Earth-616.
(Monsters Unleashed III#6) - Kid Kaiju found himself sketching the Poison Foom during an idle moment, but he stopped himself when he realized what he was doing. Later, while in the Savage Land, Foom took over Kid Kaiju's mind more and forced the boy to draw Foom with his foot in the dirt. The Poison Foom suddenly manifested over Kei and Elsa Bloodstone in the Savage Land.
(Monsters Unleashed III#7) - Foom savagely attacked the two heroes, who fled, and Elsa soon held Foom back with a shot from a monster gun. Kei summoned his monsters, Aegis, Mekara, Scragg, Hi-Vo, and Slizzik, but Foom easily overpowered them as the monsters were weakened, with Foom sapping Kei's confidence itself. Mekara tried escaping with Elsa and Kei, but Foom overpowered her, then he fought off a pack of attacking dinosaurs. Foom watched as Kei was unable to use his powers to send Foom away. Instead, Kei summoned the Fin Fang Foom of his reality to fight back against the Poison Foom.
(Monsters Unleashed III#8) - The Poison Foom battled Fin Fang Foom, boasting of how he remembered having been so weak previously. When Elsa tried escaping with Kei, the Poison Foom stopped her, determined to keep Kei for himself. With Foom and Elsa waylaid, the Poison Foom tried forcing Kei to draw more Poisons, with plans to take over the planet, but Fin Fang Foom mentally reached out to Kei, helping expose the Poison Foom's duplicity. Kei instead poured his strength back into his own monsters, and they were able to join Fin Fang Foom in attacking the Poison Foom, with Aegis delivering a killing blow as Fin Fang Foom held the monster in place.
Comments: Created by Cullen and Andrea Broccardo.
So basically these creepy little white plant creatures, called Poisons, would infect someone with a symbiote, then consume the symbiote and take over the host body. They launched a big ole invasion on Earth in the Venomized series, also by Cullen Bunn. The Poison Foom was unique as he got this solo adventure in the Savage Land all on his own. There are, of course, many other alternate reality Fooms out there, but this one was particularly scary and powerful.
