See, one of the titles that was announced at SDCC was CARNAGE, a limited series by Zeb Wells and Clayton Crain that’ll start pitting Spidey and Iron Man against the red maniac in October. Wells has been talking about the project in a number of places, from Marvel’s site to IGN (and thanks to Grubich for the head’s up,) and saying that, just as Venom went from Eddie Brock to Mac Gargan, so too will Carnage pass from Cassidy to an all-new female character. One question that’ll be addressed pertains to how much of Carnage’s evil up until this point can be blamed on the symbiote, and how much of it stemmed from Cassidy... because this new host? She's going to be a bit more conflicted about the usual bloodlust.
Ever since seeing Bill Sienkiewicz’s poster of MAXIMUM CARNAGE, I’ve always held this villain in regard as one of the most horrifying in the Marvel universe. Any of you remember that intense “ Spider-Carnage” storyline from back in the days of Ben Reilly? So I’m glad (although a bit scarred, admittedly) to see this killer’s returned to the fold. But what about you Comic Vine maniacs? Do you concur?
