Strongest Spider-Man villain the Sleeper Symbiote can defeat?

    A new symbiote spawned from Venom was recently introduced in the short Comic Mini Series called Venom First Host

    It seems to be more of a hax symbiote than all the others. Copying from the wiki...

    As a result of its unique biology, the Sleeper symbiote is capable of producing liquid and aerosol chemicals with a variety of effects - including inducing various emotional states, tranquilizing targets, and psychological manipulation. This also affords it a form of telepathy, using pheromones to interject its thoughts into others' minds. This also grants it a superior cloaking ability to other symbiotes, generating pheromones to almost-completely mask its presence.

    Augmented Visual Senses: The Sleeper symbiote was capable of seeing M'lanz's ship, despite it being cloaked and invisible to both the naked eye and human technology

    Camouflage Capabilities: Like many klyntar, the Sleeper symbiote can shift its physiological semblance into a host of different shapes and forms i.e. mimicking forms of clothing, camouflaging with its surroundings, emulating other people's visages, etc. What makes this particular Klyntar unique is its ability to manipulate ambient light in order to become invisible. This in conjunction with using its hormone abilities enables it to confuse the sensory systems of others, thereby making it the perfect stalker.

    And one last ability that's not included in the superpowers section of the marvel wiki page for the symbiote but is touched upon in the history section (and I remember from reading the comic) is the Sleeper Symbiote's ability to lobotomize. Tel-Kar, Venom's first host was able to subjugate the mind of the Venom Symbiote due to having gone through genetic modification and mental training to be able to do so. The Sleeper Symbiote bonds with Tel-Kar to stop him from killing Eddie Brock and is able to override Tel-Kar's mental defenses, lobotomize him, and use his braindead body as a host that it can manipulate as if it were its own body.

    So with all of this in mind i'd like to see how Sleeper with its hormone hax and other unique abilities (on top of the standard abilities, stats and weaknesses of symbiotes) compares to not just other symbiotes but to the rest of Spider-Man's whole rogues gallery. How does this go?
