During the 1990s, Venom's spawn fused with a murderer called Cletus Kasady, creating a new supervillain called Carnage. According to Venom's host, Eddie Brock, Kasady is "the worst serial killer to ever walk the Earth. Body count only dictators and plagues can dream of".
His mother went through electroshock therapy while she was pregnant with Kasady, meaning he never stood a chance of having anything that resembled a normal life.
Born without the ability to feel compassion, guilt, remorse, or pity, Carnage grew up to become evil incarnate. He has killed children, turned hundreds of people into slaves, and forced a town of citizens to pull out their own teeth.
Carnage was such an instant hit in comics, he spawned the series, Maximum Carnage, which inspired games for the Super Nintendo and the Mega Drive. He was also one of the Big Bads in the 1994 cartoon, Spider-Man, and was the last adversary the wallcrawler faced in the season finale.
However, there is a lot of things people don't know about Carnage. We know he's evil and powerful but few comic fans knows how his powers work or who else has worn his Symbiote. So, let's have a look at the misconceptions everyone makes about Carnage.
