PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Philly's getting a new fan in the pages of Marvel Comics, but whether the City of Brotherly Shove takes to anti-hero Venom remains to be seen.


Marvel Entertainment LLC says that Venom - a brute with big teeth and an elongated tongue who's made a habit of sparring with Spider-Man - is leaving New York City to start fresh, and maybe learn to be a hero on the streets of Philadelphia.


Writer Cullen Bunn and Editor Tom Brennan, an alum of Philadelphia's Drexel University, say it's time Philly had a hero of its own, putting it in the same league as Los Angeles, New York and other real-life cities that populate Marvel's fictional world.


Is Venom the hero that Philly wants? Their story begins Dec. 19 in "Venom" No. 28.
