Who Is Marvel’s Carnage?

Venom week continues with Carnage – the villain of Venom: Let There Be Carnage!

Who Is Carnage?

Carnage is another Symbiote, this time the offspring of Venom. This Symbiote bonded with Cletus Kasady by entering his bloodstream via a cut on his hand.

Who Is Cletus Kasidy?

Cletus Kasady is a serial killer, whose body count is possibly in the thousands. His first kill was as a child, when he pushed his abusive carer down the stairs. After this, Cletus evolved into murdering by pushing people in front of buses, setting buildings on fire, and eventually evolving into cannablism.

When caught, Cletus was given eleven lifetime sentences without parol. But, while in prison, Cletus was given Eddie Brock as a cell mate. When the two fought, Venom re-bonded with Eddie and made an escape. Unknown to Venom and Eddie, Venom left behind an asexually produced spawn, which bonded with Cletus via the bloodstream. From there, Cletus became Carnage, and the two broke out of jail and went back to killing.

What Are Their Powers?

Because Venom has been bonded with both Eddie and Spider-Man, and Venom created the Carnage Symbiote, Carnage is now a lot stronger than Venom and Spider-Man. Carnage also has the ability to shape-shift, can shoot web-like substances, and can implant thoughts in others’ minds thanks to a Symbiote tendril. Cletus and Carnage can also stick themselves to walls like Spider-Man, a sense similar to Spidey-Sense, which means they can ‘see’ in nearly any direction.

They can also regenerate body parts and are immune to all diseases.

What Are Their Weaknesses?

Similar to Venom, Carnage is sensitive to sound waves and heat, and is also vulnerable to electricity.
