Everyone’s favorite psychopath, Cletus Kasady, is soon to be a playable hero in Marvel Heroes Omega for the PC! His Pre-Sale is now live, and if you act now you can get 10% off!
Cletus Kasady was a psychopath with a history of violence. He was finally captured and sent to Ryker’s Island prison for 11 murders—though he bragged about killing a dozen more. There he shared a cell with Eddie Brock, the host of the alien symbiote that turns into the supervillain Venom. When Brock’s symbiote soon returned to be bonded again, allowing Venom to escape prison, the symbiote unknowingly left its offspring in the cell. Due to its alien mindset, the symbiote felt no emotional attachment to its offspring, regarding it as insignificant. Venom thus never communicated its existence to Brock via their telepathic link.
The new symbiote then bonded with Kasady, transforming him into Carnage. He escaped prison, began a series of murders, and at the scene of each crime, wrote “Carnage” on the walls with his own blood. He was found by Spider-Man, though the hero proved to be no match for Carnage’s powers. In desperation, Spider-Man made a truce with Venom to fight Carnage. The Carnage symbiote was defeated and apparently destroyed with sonic weaponry, but unbeknownst to them the symbiote had in fact, unlike Venom, established a deeper equilibrium with its host. After entering Kasady’s body through a small cut, it bonded to his blood (which caused its red coloration).
