In a comic book/graphic novel adaptation, although not limited to, the "Venom Treatment" applies to a well-known and popular character that is underused/underdeveloped, and/or rushed in on the part of bad writing or appeasing fans. Coined following disappointment in expectations for the popular villain "Venom" in the film "Spider-Man 3"
Some say that Two-Face in "The Dark Knight" received the Venom Treatment for not being a major villain in the film, although his purpose in the film is a matter of interpretation.
