History of Carnage
Carnage – Marvel Universe was once a serial killer known as Cletus Kasady, and became Carnage after merging with the offspring of the alien symbiote called Venom during a prison breakout. The symbiote amplified his psychotic nature making him even less mentally stable than he had been previously, and therefore even more dangerous. An interesting note is that, unlike Venom, Carnage is a singular entity, referring to himself as “I” instead of “We”, because the symbiote has actually merged into Kasady’s bloodstream. Carnage is also the
What makes Carnage so DANGEROUS?
Kasady has been detached from the symbiote and reattached many times in the Marvel comics. The Carnage symbiote has been known to attach itself to other characters such as the Silver Surfer, Ben Reilly (a Spider-Man clone), and Doctor Octopus on occasion. Later, Venom agreed to consume the Carnage symbiote “for good,” but Kasady maintained the Carnage identity by donning red paint and continuing his murder sprees (albeit as a powerless human). Kasady, on the other hand, found an exact duplicate of the symbiote in the Negative Zone, which was short-lived. It’s unknown if the symbiote is a separate entity “permanently” bound to him or his own blood has been mutated. The symbiote once left Kasady to bond with Ben Reilly. Kasady rapidly aged and his body weakened without the symbiote. Kasady was barely able to operate in this state, having trouble even operating a sink, let alone posing a threat. In time, the symbiote reconnected with him, saving his life and restoring his health. Kasady perished of an advanced form of stomach cancer (apparently a side-effect of the symbiosis, that even Eddie Brock, the original Venom suffered) after the symbiote betrayed him once more, this time to merge with the Silver Surfer (transforming him into the Carnage Cosmic). Venom, on the other hand, did not deteriorate after eating the symbiote, implying that several remnants of the symbiote were left behind (enough to sustain him but not enough to form the costume). This could be supported by the fact that Kasady seemed to have retained some enhanced power.
Later, Venom and Spider-Man had to work together to stop Carnage. During this time, it was discovered that the symbiote had already become an inextricable part of Kasady’s blood. The symbiote just needed to be cut in half for Kasady to return to form Carnage. Carnage, unlike Venom, had been less susceptible to the high-pitched sounds that would usually incapacitate him, but he was still vulnerable to extreme heat.
Carnage was recently one of the super-villains attempting to flee the Raft. He attempted to murder two helpless civilians who had come to visit another inmate named Sentry, who then intervened and flew Carnage outside of the Earth’s atmosphere, where he was torn apart. Kasady hasn’t been seen since, he was supposedly killed.
Kasady’s natural abilities granted by the symbiote make him a formidable combatant capable of holding his own against Spider-Man and Deadpool, despite his lack of formal training. Also with the symbiote, though, his combat skills are not as advanced as those of more seasoned superheroes. Eddie Brock and Patrick Mulligan have had more experience.
Carnage is much more powerful than both Venom and Spider-Man combined. Carnage can press up to 80 tonnes of weight. His strength increases with his height and variable muscle mass, but this isn’t his true limit.
- Insanity: Cletus is a diagnosed psychopath who is obsessed with chaos even without the symbiote. His mental disorders can also be used against him, allowing others to influence his actions.
- Electricity: High voltages of electricity make the Grendel symbiote extremely vulnerable, making it absolutely incapacitated.
- Sonics: The Grendel symbiote is susceptible to noisy vibrations, rendering it and its offshoots helpless.
