I now they are not the same...but spawns suit is obviously based on venom.

    The first Symbiotic "suits" appeared at least back in 1977, in a SciFi novel by John Varley.

    In that book they were just called "Symbs".

    (There may be others older still, that's just one I remember).

    His enhance human abilities and are friendly as long as humans work with them - but will destroy people if not...

    So they do have both an ability-boosting and an aggressive side, just like the later characters you mention.

    So no, Marvel is not being copied. If anyone it was Varley who deserved credit.

    You can't copyright an idea. Almost every superhero has some similarities to others.
