Venom's Gender Switch

When David Michelinie was creating Venom for the Spider-Man comics he was working on at the time, he originally wanted the character to be a woman who Peter didn't know, but lost both her husband and her unborn child as an indirect result of Spider-Man's crime fighting escapades. The idea was nixed not because of the darkness of that story, but because editor Jim Salicrup didn't think a woman could bbe threatening enough to make a good villain.
