Awww -- ain't that sweet? He misses me! Well, don't cry, daddy dearest -- 'cause your sonny boy -- is ALIVE AND WELL!
~ Cletus "Carnage" Kasady.

Cletus Kasady was already a dangerous serial killer before he became the powerful psychopathic super-villain known as Carnage.



Even as a child, Kassidy was a homicidal psychopath. He murdered his grandmother by pushing her down a tall flight of stairs, tortured his dog to death, burned down his orphanage, and murdered a girl who rejected his crush on her. Needless to say, he grew worse as he grew older.

While sharing a prison cell with Eddie Brock, the Symbiote that made Brock into the super-powered Venom came and busted its former host out of prison. Some of the alien's spawn remained behind, and bonded with Kassidy, seeping into his bloodstream and creating a menace more powerful than Venom. As Carnage, he wreaked havoc across the city, and sought to destroy both Venom and Spider-Man- the symbiote's previous hosts. Carnage easily defeated both of his hated foes individually, forcing Venom and Spider-Man to team up against him. Together they defeated him, but Carnage was always around after to cause them (and everyone else) misery. explores the origin of Carnage and his host: Cletus Kasady

Carnage once teamed-up with another insane super-serial killer, Shriek, after he caused a breakout at the mental hospital of Ravencroft, and formed a team of homicidal villains, including Demogoblin, Carrion, and Doppleganger.

In a "What If?" alternate timeline, the Carnage symbiote bonded with the Silver Surfer, creating Carnage Cosmic, and ruthlessly battled the Avengers and Spider-Man before being separated.

Recently, Carnage was killed when the powerful hero, Sentry, took him into outer space and tore him in half. It is unknown if Kassidy was in the symbiote or not at the time. Since then, the symbiote has returned on it's own, battling Spider-Man and Iron man together.

It turns out that Carnage somehow survived being torn in half by Sentry. His entire lower half was mechanically modified to replace his missing half.

Carnage's powers include super-human strength, agility, and durability, as well as the ability to nullify Spider-Man's "spider-sense". The symbiote in his blood allows him to form web-like substances, and can create weapons, tendrils, and other objects by sprouting parts of the symbiote from his body. He can even detach his weapon-tendrils and hurl them at opponents. He is virtually bullet-proof, as the symbiote can deflect bullets and other projectiles. His weaknesses are extreme heat, and loud vibrations, such as sound-waves.

The Ultimate Marvel Universe version of Carnage is self-regenerating form of life based on the symbiotic suit research of Richard Parker. He is created by Curt Connors to replace the missing Venom "suit" by using the the same process to create Venom, his own DNA, and the DNA of Peter Parker. Using some of Peter's memories, it travels to Peter's home and kills Gwen Stacy. It battles Peter, and he eventually manages to kill it. Doctor Octopus later creates a new Carnage that takes on the form of Gwen Stacy. It has the memories of Gwen and attempts to reunite with Peter. It eventually returns to its Carnage form when confronted by S.H.I.E.L.D., and is eventually taken into their custody. Carnage later escapes during the Green Goblin's escape. 

During the "War of the Symbiotes" arc, the Carnage symbiote squares off with it's forerunner in a no-holds-barred, one-on-one duel to the death that lasts an issue,which ends with Eddie defeating Carnage,and absorbing the symboite,allowing total control over the suit.

Carnage makes an appearance in the Ultimate Spider-Man video game. He's the final  Venom Level boss. After Spider-Man and Venom were knocked unconscious and held captive by Bolivar Trask, Peter Parker somehow changed into Carnage after being experimented on by Trask's men. As Carnage, Parker caused destruction throughout the lab. This caused Eddie to wake up and he attempted to escape. Just when he was about to reach the door, Carnage appeared and attacked Eddie. Eddie somehow knew that Carnage was Parker, so Eddie became Venom and confronted him. Due to being smaller and having a longer range, Carnage was a powerful enemy against Venom. When Carnage loses 3/4 of his health, he will retreat and suck the life out of the scientists. When Venom enters the room, Carnage will retreat into another room, and continue to suck the life out of the scientists to heal himself. When Venom entered the room, Carnage will fight him for a bit, but will retreat again into the last room. After a lengthy battle, Venom was able to defeat Carnage. With the defeat of Carnage, Venom drains the suit off of Peter and gains total control over the suit.

Carnage appears in the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon series episode "Carnage", voiced by Dee Bradley Baker, reprising his role from the 2000 Spider-Man video game. This version is created by Green Goblin using key components of the Goblin formula and Harry Osborn's blood sample of the Venom symbiote, has a red tongue, makes a screeching noise, and can turn his body spiky. When Green Goblin injects Peter Parker with the mixture, Peter's spider cells makes the Venom organism unstable and imperfect, thus forming Carnage with Peter as its host. Green Goblin, approving of his new "son", sends Carnage to eliminate Spider-Man and his friends (not knowing that Peter and Spider-Man are one and the same). After a battle with Spider-Man's friends/teammates (Power Man, Nova, Iron Fist and White Tiger), Carnage defeats them all. However, Harry allows the Carnage symbiote to attach to him, reverting to its previous Venom form.


Carnage was originally going to appear in Spider-Man 4, however after the film titled The Amazing Spider-Man was announced, Spider-Man 4 was cancelled.


Main article: Carnage (Halloween Horror Nights) Carnage appeared as an co-icon for Halloween Horror Nights: Islands of Fear.
