Cletus Kasady, formerly also known as Carnage, is a former criminal and the host for the Venom symbiote.
Video Game ContinuityEdit
Cletus Kasady is a criminal who murders other criminals. When Spider-Man was chasing the criminal known as Carridine, Spider-Man finds his dead body under a pile of garbage bags. Then he notices initials on the wall that reads CK written in blood. Spider-Man seeks the help of Kraven the hunter to find this killer. He then finds him in an alley about to kill his next victim. Spider-Man jumps into the scene in which he fights Kasady. Kasady is later arrested and placed in the Ravencroft institute where the "Venom" symbiote is injected into his bloodstream. Kasady broke out of the testing room and turning other inmates into symbiote-infected-people. Spider-Man finally catches up to Kasady in a caged room. After their first fight, Kasady and the symbiote fully bond becoming Carnage. After the battle, the Carnage symbiote is removed and Kasady is being transferred to his jail cell.
The Daily Bugle (tumblr)Edit
A Daily Bugle article on Tumblr dated on April 10, 2014 mentions Cletus Kasady being captured by the police. He had been previously sentenced to twelve life sentences for twelve murders but had escaped whilst being transported between federal prisons.
- His weaknesses are fire and sound (strong vibrations).
- Unlike The Lizard, Carnage is the first final boss who is not an antagonist from the film the game is based on nor does he ever appear in said film.
- Upon seeing the symbiote, Spider-Man states it's not from Earth. However, Carnage tells Spider-Man that they're "practically family already". This means the Venom symbiote is not from Earth, but Richard Parker has modified it with his DNA.
