It appears that no Marvel hero can be untouched as soon as the larger, worse, and now symbiote god Carnage unleashes chaos and disruption. Marvel Comics has revealed Absolute Carnage which will arrive in August from writer Donny Cates, artist Ryan Stegman, and colorist Frank Martin. In the teaser, shows a number of Marvel’s powerful and biggest superheroes succumbing to what it seems to be Carnage’s symbiote. Above the Avengers is Venom, with the phrase “Everyone is a target” between him and imperiled heroes.
The Absolute Carnage #1 launch event in August will release more than two dozens of covers for his largest books. Writer Cates said,” The Captain America #13 covered by artist Butch Guice is only one variant that the Absolute Carnage occasion can be thought of, regardless of how others could also be. It would be a great sort of attraction among the followers as Steve Rogers’s version is going to be hard to beat.”
Absolute Carnage will receive a prologue in Marvel’s Free Comic Book Day release to be held on May 5. Spinning out of pages of Venom ongoing series, the Web of Venom: Cult of Carnage #1 specials have introduced key characters and plot points that have begun to directly tie into the main series. It’s hard to think more nightmarish villain than Carnage but writer Donny Cates has given him a major upgrade in the current world of Venom Comics.
Those looking to dive into the madness of Absolute Carnage this summer will only face issue to catch up on. The biggest development being the resurrection of Cletus Kassady, and his new mission to kill every marvel hero has worn a symbiote.
Not to be afraid as said by Cates,” this event encompasses every Marvel character that has ever been worn by a symbiote and every symbiote that has ever been, going all the way back to when Peter Parker found the black suit. Going from there to MAXIMUM CARNAGE to VANOMIZED to everything…everyone is a target.”
The whole story is framed in order to make Carnage attain a higher level of symbiote godhood. So every Marvel hero and about half of villains would be affected by him. With Cletus Kassady’s return tied to Knull, he and Eddie Brock are sure to be on a collision course for the ages and it seems whole Marvel Universe is destined to be caught in the crossfire.
Carnage, this time is actually getting physical powers to have control over the host completely. So the Carnage-sized Captain America is more emblematic than a literal story tease. This is truly a concerning thought for followers for the future of Marvel characters. Author Donny Cates said,” this coming story of carnage would possibly find yourself being much more far-reaching than his Venom sequence.”
Fans thrilled and excited with the Marvel’s August release can also watch the announcement trailer shared on Cate’s twitter handle. Being humorous Cates said he,” I and Stegman believe that Absolute Carnage will outsell the Jim Lee’s X-men #1, which is considered the best-selling comic book of all time.”
