symbiote
(Noun)

1. an organism in a partnership with another such that each profits from their being together; a symbiont
Symbiote

2. The Symbiotes are a fictional race of amorphous extraterrestrial parasites which appear in the Marvel Comics shared universe. The Symbiotes envelop their hosts like costumes, creating a parasitic bond through which the host's mind can be influenced. The first appearance of a symbiote occurs in The Amazing Spider-Man #252, The Spectacular Spider-Man #90, and Marvel Team-Up #141, in which Spider-Man brings one home to Earth after the Secret Wars. The concept was created by a Marvel Comics reader, with the publisher purchasing the idea for $220. The original design was then modified by Mike Zeck, becoming the Venom symbiote. The concept would be explored and used throughout multiple storylines, spin-off comics, and derivative projects.
