M.A.S.K. Wiki

V.E.N.O.M. (Vicious Evil Network of Mayhem) is a criminal organization led by Miles Mayhem. It was formed as an agency of a shadowy malevolent group called Contraworld.

Recently, Hasbro has merged elements of M.A.S.K. into its G.I. Joe line. This new backstory claims that Contraworld is a part of COBRA.


Little is known of the formation of Mayhem's team. However it is revealed that Mayhem stole some of the technology to make converting vehicles and powered masks from Matt Trakker when they worked together to develop it.


V.E.N.O.M. is occasionally seen at their headquarters, which is set into a mountainside. Its location is unknown, but based on events in "The Deathstone" it is likely not far from M.A.S.K.'s headquarters. V.E.N.O.M.'s hideout is not disguised, and does not appear to be as sophisticated as Boulder Hill. It is rarely seen in the animated series, and no playset was ever designed or released (though Outlaw does, to some extent, operate in this capacity in toy line and, to some degree, the series).

In Season 2 of the animated series and Series 4 of the toys, M.A.S.K. and V.E.N.O.M. has taken their battles to the race track, either battling each other for the checkered flag or using the race as a diversion toward another goal. During this time, most V.E.N.O.M. racing missions are led by Vanessa Warfield. Miles Mayhem, while occasionally featured, spends most of his time as a direct foil to Matt Trakker in Season 2.

V.E.N.O.M. Personnel[]

It is unknown if Mayhem selects his agents in the same way as Matt, but he seems to choose the ones best suited for his criminal schemes.
