Biography

Venom

Donna Diego was a paramedic who was called to respond to a shuttle crash from the Life Foundation, to retrieve the pilot John Jameson. However, Jameson had been bonded to one of the alien organisms he was carrying, a symbiote called Riot, who jumped from her and bonded to her. After crashing the ambulance, the Riot-possessed Donna tore out of it to make his way to the Life Foundation.

Donna later made her way into a Mandarin marketplace, and due to Riot's hunger, picked up an eel and ate it. When the cook berated her, she manifested a blade from her hand and killed him. She was then threatened by a gang in response to this murder, but she blasted spikes out of her back, killing them all. Dying from Riot's bond, she moves to an elderly woman, and Riot bonds over to her, thus killing Donna.

Trivia

  • In the comics, Donna Diego was a gorgeous woman who worked as a security guard for the Life Foundation. She was voluntarily selected to be bonded to a symbiote forcibly spawned from the Venom Symbiote, thus becoming the supervillain Scream. Scream was leader of a team of symbiote-bonded supervillains, consisting of Riot, Lasher, Agony and Phage. They were sent after Spider-Man and Venom, but were defeated. They later returned, however, Donna had been diagnosed with schizophrenia, and her symbiote only made it worse. She ended up murdering her other comrades in a psychotic break. However, she gained control of herself and began to emulate Venom, trying to be a hero.
  • Donna was Caucasian and redheaded in the comics, whereas she is brunette and Asian in the film. In addition, she is a perfectly sane paramedic who dies fairly early in he film.
  • While the yellow symbiote (heavily implied to be the Scream Symbiote) appears in the film, Donna isn't the host but instead is the Riot Symbiote's first host and dies after being discarded in favor of an old woman. It is unknown what becomes of the Scream symbiote.
