The Carnage symbiote was the spawn of the Venom symbiote. The symbiote later bonded to Cletus Kasady which turned him into Carnage.


The Carnage symbiote was the spawn of the Venom symbiote.

Dormammu had Baron Mordo bring the Venom symbiote back to Earth because he wanted the new symbiote.

When Baron Mordo found the new symbiote he went to the Ravencroft Institute for the Criminally Insane and gave it to Cletus Kasady. The symbiote then bonded to Kasady and he took the name Carnage.

Spider-Man, Venom, and Iron Man ended up defeating Carnage and he and the symbiote ended up getting trapped in the Dark Dimension.

Powers and weaknesses


The Carnage symbiote was very different from the Venom symbiote.

The symbiote allowed Cletus Kasady to morph parts of his body into various weapons such as blades and axes.

The symbiote also gave its user incredible strength. While wearing the symbiote Cletus Kasady was able to lift a tank above his head.

The symbiote also allowed Casady to extend parts of his body to create "ropes" so that he could swing from building to building of capture enemies.

The smybiote later evolved to where Cletus Kasady could use it to stretch out parts of his body to great lengths and even ooze through cracks in a wall. Because of this it can be assumed that this evolved symbiote also turned all of Kasady's body into a liquified state when on him because had Kasady's body not been turned into liquid the symbiote would of had to detach itself from him while oozing through solid objects.


The Carnage symbiote is naturally weakened by intense sounds and intense sonic waves.

The symbiote can also be weakened by fire and intense heat.


In the comics

The Carnage symbiote is part of an alien race known as the Klyntar which are from the Andromeda galaxy. The symbiot's species or what planet it came from was never revealed in Spider-Man: The Animated Series.

In the comics, Cletus Kasady was cell mates with Eddie Brock. When the symbiote returned to Brock once again turning him into Venom he broke out of prison.

Venom was unaware that he was pregnant and left behind his spawn at the prison. Venom's spawn then bonded to Kasady and turned him into Carnage.

In the comics, Baron Mordo had nothing to do with Cletus Kasady getting the symbiote and becoming Carnage.

  • Since Eddie Brock and the symbiote were two separate beings that bonded together Venom referred to himself as "we" or "us". However, Cletus Kasady's insane mind bonded to the symbiote so completely that Carnage referred to himself as "I" or "me".
