Raimi was okay with early silver age concepts and even then not always. Like Spider-Man has the best rogues gallery of any comic book other than Batman and he wanted to waste a great one like Mysterio on a one off gag at the start of Spider-Man 4. When it came to adapting modern stuff like Venom he seriously faltered.
I get what you're saying by calling Venom "modern", It just seems a little weird now. Venom (not counting the symbiote's earlier introduction) was introduced 26 years into the run of Spider-Man comics, and had been around for 19 when when Spider-Man 3 came out. Almost seems odd when the character had been around for almost half of Spider-Man history and has by now been around for more than half.
