And Talia stabbing Bruce, more than anything, is just a parallel to how Talia was stabbing someone with a knife inside the Pit who took her mother and then she ended up stabbing the man who killed her father with a knife as well.
Venom never originally did anything to the users size except for covers. Plus it was basically used anyway, as a drug that keeps his pain at bay, making him nigh invulnerable, perhaps even benefit his strength. It just wasn't named.
