I have loved lava lamps since I was a young lad and the stuff inside the lamps would come alive and move around for hours inside that glass container. While lave lamps continue to be a popular decorating item in dorm rooms and Nerd Rooms of Doom around the country, Marvel has figured out a way brand the lights for comic book fans by giving us Venom in a jar.

The upcoming “magalog” (that’s their word, not mine) features the Venom Containment Unit Lave Lite.

Feel like a S.H.I.E.L.D agent as you look after the deadly Venom symbiote with this biological containment unit branded with the S.H.I.E.L.D logo that warns onlookers, “CAUTION: ENTITY HOSTILE.” Turn the lamp on and watch the symbiote ooze and bounce restlessly in its glass prison, looking for a way to escape and latch on to a new host. This PREVIEWS exclusive lamp is a fun, quirky collectible for fans of the sometime Spider-Man foe Venom and the perfect addition to any nerd lair—just be careful not to let Venom out!


If I didn’t already have three lava lamps and a giant salt crystal already running in the office, this would certainly be added to the list. What about you, Spoilerite? Are you jumping on this $26.99 goodie?
