Venom 2 or Venom: Let There Be Carnage finally airs this week. For those who are not comic fans or just want to watch Venom, you may be wondering who Carnage, the creepy red figure in the film, is. Here are some basic things to know about the character played by Woody Harrelson. History In the comics, Carnage is Cletus Kasady, a serial killer and sociopath who appeared in Amazing Spider-Man. Kasady killed his grandmother by pushing her off the stairs. The story is more or less similar to the Joker character in The Dark Knight. Kasady becomes a cellmate of Eddie Brock (Venom) in a high-security prison known as The Vault.
Brock eventually escapes with the help of the symbiote Venom, who, unbeknownst to Brock, will produce a child, which he leaves in Brock’s cell. The symbiotic child then attaches itself to the first host it can find, which turns out to be Cletus Kasady, who gives birth to Carnage. These sadistic and bloodthirsty creatures have accumulated enough bodies over the years that even the Avengers struggle to stand trial.
Based on the Joker character, The Clown Prince of Crime or Joker may be the most influential comic book villain ever made.Without a doubt, is one of DC’s most recognizable foes in history, with his trademark green hair, pale white skin, purple suit, and ghastly laugh that sends goosebumps.
The Joker is a psychopathic killer who indulges in killing and creating havoc just for fun.
Although the killer clown is part of the vast Batman universe, his presence and influence can be felt on the various other villains that came after him, reaching as far as Marvel comics in the process. Although Carnage revolves around Venom, the human component of the character, Cletus Kasady, is largely based on the Joker’s personality. Erik Larsen, the comic artist who created Kasady has admitted to being a cellmate of Brock from DC Comic, Clown Prince of Crime. It’s certainly not hard to see the parallels between these two villains. They both really enjoy their various killings, and are psychopaths who have completely lost their sense of morality.
Carnage’s powers are a crazy serial killer with the same powers as Venom and Spider-Man, plus other powers that even his parents don’t have, and this makes him one of the most dangerous villains in Marvel comics.
Carnage has the unique ability to reshape parts of his symbiotic form into weapons and can even turn fragments of himself into projectiles, which can retain their shape for up to ten seconds after being severed from his body. He also has the power to alter people’s thoughts and memories, assuming he can make contact with their brains via tendrils. Beyond that, Carnage has all the powers of a standard symbiote, including shapeshifting and fast healing.
He can change his appearance to imitate any form of clothing, although Carnage rarely does this as blending in and going unnoticed is usually the last thing he wants to do. More often than not, Kasady uses this power to grow extra wings or limbs, another unique power that only Carnage’s symbiotes seem to possess. Symbiotes live in Kasady’s bloodstream and can be regenerated from a drop of Kasady’s blood. In addition, Carnage also has all the abilities that Venom imitated from Peter Parker. How to stop Carnage With such great power, the joining of Spider-Man with Venom is expected to destroy Carnage. Of course, their combined strength was still not enough.
After being tracked down, Carnage proves to have more power than Spider-Man and Venom can handle, throwing both web slingers against the wall with one blow.
Finally, thanks to the cooperation of the two, Spidey and Venom manage to defeat Carnage, and Kassidy is imprisoned once again. It was a short-lived victory, as it wouldn’t be the last time Spider Man had encountered supervillain Carnage.
