There is a possible chance he could come back, Was it ever determined whether Sentry killed the symbiote itself or Cletus Kasady?

He flew Carnage up to space and I assume Kasady was with him.

Wikipedia said something about Iron Man's computer not being able to detect if  Cletus was in the symbiote at the time.

He will be back soon enough.  You're not the only symbiote fan here.

They should leave him dead. He was interesting when he first started, like all the symbiotes. But Marvel needs to quit using them.

Carnage sucks.That whole insanity thing..over done.How many insane villains can we have? How many symbiotes can we have? The whole symbiote thing is so boring now.What is the point of bringing him back? So Spider-Man can own him again? So he can fight Venom.I'd rather that not happen.Thing is..I know Carnage will be back,because all of Spider-Man's villains are coming back.Some of them needed to and I didn't mind but Carnage should stay dead.There is nothing cool about the character what so ever.

Venom got me into comics in the first place, I thought Carnage was a great concept. They should've stopped at Toxin though, Regardless, I've just always liked him. Dunno why.

Carnage is the same exact thing as Venom..he's just clinically insane.The symbiotes themselves is not what makes the characters lame..the fact that they all do the same sh#t is what makes them lame.I liked Toxin.I read his mini then Marvel pretended he would be part of the Initiative and then they completely left him out it.

I grew up with Spidy. Venom and Carnage were the two main spidy villains for me. (Cept Norman makes it the 3 main villains for me now) And, I loved it how Venom describe Carnage and Venom relationship. Carnage is the "darker" side to Venom. Carnage took everything Venom had and made it ten times worst. Than Spidy said that's how Venom is to him. Personally, that was an "awe" moment for. Plus, Maximum Carnage storyline, was just awesome.

Carnage is Venom's son.That's just wrong..first of all.Carnage isn't a dark side of Venom either.Kletus Kassady and Eddie Brock are just two different people.Kassady is insane..and he had been before he became Carnage.Brock was just a regular guy.Maximum Carnage was awesome..but c'mon..It's 2009.

Just think about it. It makes sense.

Spider-man: Good guy always trying to be a hero. Against killing lives.

Venom: Hero, that will kill anyone lives as long as it saves the innocent. Now, that is clearly the darker side of spider-man. Plus, Spider-man created Venom.

Carnage: Pure Villain. Kills lives. Everyone lives. Darker side to Venom but on a whole new level.

It would be interesting is he wasn't in it.  Would make an awesome story for his own series.  Him traveling the world killing people but at the same time just losing his mind.  wearing the muscles and blood of his victims looking like Carnage.  then he can get killed and sent to Hell where he meets Blackheart.  The two then fight there way out of Hell and back on to earth.  It could end with Carnage and Blackheart trying to kill Dare Devil but fail.  Cletus then bums into the New Mr. Sinister and takes him to some hidden location.  It ends with the X-Men confronted by Cletus in his new Carnage form.

Venom, Anti-Venom, Toxin, Carnage, and that group of symbiotes from a long time ago. BAH! Too many. I think Venom and Anti-Venom are more than enough. Carnage is also boring.

Ok, here's my outlook on the symbiotes.

- Symbiotes were cool at first, but Marvel ruined them.
- Venom, Carnage, and Toxin were the only symbiotes that were cool. [Toxin only because he was a good guy, so it was a change of pace.]
- Eddie Brock was THE BEST Venom.
- Carnage rocks.

Marvel didn't ruin anything.Symbiotes aren't cool anymore because they just aren't.They are new anymore.They aren't fresh.They were cool when we didn't know alot about them and when the villains they made were major.Now that Brock got owned,Gargan is a screw up,and Carnage got ripped in half...who cares?

Yeah I said that they were cool at first. Something ruined them. Marvel let us know too much about them and got too much into the whole symbiote thing. That's why theyre not cool anymore.

Marvel had no choice..how long do you think an Alien costume was going to last? You can only go but so far with the idea.The fact there is still any around is a miracle.

They could've lasted longer than they did. I'm just saying I liked the idea of a bunch of alien goop turning someone into a freaky looking monster and giving him extraordinary powers. Marvel could have let it stay a little bit of a mystery. Instead, they decided to have a whole planet of them and have 8738946598639428 symbiotes.

Carnage was a bit of fresh air at the time.  Consider what was going on with Spidey when Carnage showed up: a pair of robots were pretending to be his parents.  I remember reading those comics and thinking to myself, "sweet jeebus, does this kid have anyone else in his life he can lose?  Oh?  Is that Carnage?  Thank god, we can get back to some superheroics!"

But looking back, Carnage was more than a little derivative.  He was the villainous progeny of a character who was himself the anti-hero progeny of Spiderman.
