Dear god mate. Pick a Color. Introduced in Venom: Lethal Protector #1 (1992) by David Michelinie and Ron Lim, Trevor Cole was a security guard for the Life Foundation group who was selected to be bonded with one of five symbiote extracted from the Venom symbiote. When Spider-man followed Scream to the foundation, they attacked the Web-head who teamed up with Venom to stop them, which resulted in an explosion. The five were believed killed but later showed up to help Brock escape prison. They wanted Brock’s help in controlling their symbiote, but Brock refused and escaped. The group found Agony’s host dead and believed it was Brock who killed her, so they went to hunt him down. Riot realized that it wasn’t Brock but Scream who killed Agony but was too late as Scream stabbed him with a sonic dagger, killing him. The symbiote survived and eventually found more hosts.
All five characters weren’t the most well-known characters until Hasbro started making figures of them, but Riot did get a major popularity boost due to his role in the first Venom movie. He would receive a figure as part of an Amazon exclusive box set with Agony and Riot.

- Out of the five Life Foundation symbiote, Riot was one that could never keep a proper color, mostly due to the printers at the time. Sometimes he is grey, others brown. Marvel finally decided on more recent artwork just to make him blue.
- Why do you need it for your collection?
- If you want to complete the Life Foundation symbiotes you will need this. It will also be needed for a Venom’s family collections. Finally, you may want him for a Spider-man or Venom’s rogue gallery.
- Does it need a remake?
Below you will find a gallery of suits that still need to be made. I have included what I think are the possibilities of them being made. Note that these are my personal opinions and not facts. Please let me know if I have missed anything.
