For many who could not have been following the world of Venom in recent times, allow us to be the primary to let you know that Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman have modified the sport in the case of Marvel’s symbiotes. However these trying to dive into the insanity of Absolute Carnage this summer season solely have a number of points to atone for. The largest growth being the resurrection of Cletus Kasady, and his new mission to kill every Marvel hero who has worn a symbiote. Don’t be concerned about protecting monitor of who that endangers–because in response to Cates himself, this occasion “encompasses every single character who has ever worn a symbiote and every symbiote that has ever been, going all the way back to when Peter found the black suit.”

Meaning nearly each Marvel hero and half of the villains are actually being hunted, in order that Carnage can attain the next stage of symbiote godhood.
