Marvel Announces SUPERIOR CARNAGE

We all knew he'd be back.

As we get ready for Superior Spider-Month, Marvel continues with the announcements. Yesterday the revealed plans for THE SUPERIOR FOES OF SPIDER-MAN and Monday we got a look at SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #9. Today they announced the return of Carnage.

Kevin Shinick (AVENGING SPIDER-MAN, Robot Chicken) will pen the story along with Stephen Segovia (X-TREME X-MEN, THOR) handling the art duties. This isn't just the return of Carnage. This is going to be the SUPERIOR Carnage.

No Caption Provided

In a five-issue miniseries, we'll see Carnage deteriorating in an asylum but apparently his fellow inmates have not given up on him or what he stands for. They plan on rebuilding Carnage in a Frankenstein fashion to try to restore the symbiote to its deadly former glory. With Cletus Kasady in a catatonic state, what emerges from their experiments could be more than anyone bargained for.

Kevin Shinick said the following:

“I'm really excited to be working on Superior Carnage. It's very rare that you can say the words 'Like you've never seen him before!' and truly mean it. But Stephen and I have been working on some great designs for what happens when the Wizard attempts to turn Carnage into an agent of evil the way the Avengers converted Venom for good! Plus now that Cletus Kasady has essentially been lobotomized, readers (and the Wizard) are going to encounter a monster very different from what they were expecting.”

The series begins in July.
