Being a huge Venom fan in the 90’s I collected every book I could with Venom and/or Carnage.  Carnage was something fresh at the time and the sheer violent nature of the character brought the best out of Venom and even Spider-Man to a degree.  When Carnage was “killed” by the Sentry I felt Marvel had written off the character and wanted to focus their energies on establishing Eddie Brock’s Anti-Venom persona. I was pleasantly surprised to see the announcement of Carnage’s return in my inbox and felt I had to share it with our fellow comic fans. As is the case when Carnage is involved it will usually require the combined forces of multiple Marvel heroes to stop him. Expect to see the Avengers,FF and Spidey and I am sure a few others as well. Welcome back Mr. Kasady we’ve missed you. While you mark your calendar take a moment and check out the sneak peek of Carnage U.S.A #1








  • First Look: Venom #10-Venom vs. Captain America (
  • Ten Characters I Would Have Liked To See In Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 (
  • MTR Week in Review (


  1. I have even contacted the company that now own the rights To Maximum Carnage the Video game to redo it to XBOX 360 and PS3. Done this quit a few times never any word back thou. With Carnage USA coming out its would sell even more.

  2. Is this actually Cletus Kasady? Is it all in 616? Is that an RNC I see in the last panel? SO MANY QUESTIONS!

    • @rubberonion It is indeed Cletus Kasady back to stir things up. To my knowledge it is in the regular Marvel universe.

  3. Why couldn’t this been a Big Event Like Maximum Carnage was. I mean come on This is Maximum Carnage 2. Why is it a 5 issue mini series! Damn You Marvel!

  4. I like Carnage. I wish they would make an old school horror movie starring either Carnage or Venom…or both together. I’m thinking like Alien 1 or The Thing type paranoia. They are perfect for a good creature horror flick.
