Carnage will be entering the world of Superior Spider-Man via a new series titled Superior Carnage from creative team writer Kevin Shinick (Avenging Spider-Man, Robot Chicken) and Stephen Segovia (X-treme X-Men, Thor). The five-issue limited series launches in July first as part of Superior Spider-Man.
Check out a preview and synopsis here below.
Synopsis from Marvel:
The homicidal villain, Carnage, is deteriorating in the confines of his asylum—but his fellow inmates are not giving up just yet! Watch as their Frankenstein-style experiment unfolds for better or for worse. Can they restore the deadliest of the symbiotes to its former glory, or better yet, do they have what it takes to build a more dastardly, more sinister, more superior Carnage?
“This is a Carnage story that will send shivers down the backs of anyone who reads it,” explained Sana Amanat, Editor, Marvel Entertainment. “What Kevin and Stephen have planned for the character is unlike any Carnage story that’s come before it, and surely will be one that will have fans demanding more of when it’s all said and done. Want to know why people love Carnage so much? Jump on here.”
“I’m really excited to be working on Superior Carnage. It’s very rare that you can say the words “Like you’ve never seen him before!” and truly mean it,” explains Shinick. “But Stephen and I have been working on some great designs for what happens when the Wizard attempts to turn Carnage into an agent of evil the way the Avengers converted Venom for good! Plus now that Cletus Kasady has essentially been lobotomized, readers (and the Wizard) are going to encounter a monster very different from what they were expecting.”
Marvel as always these days is quick to note when there’s an opportunity for new and lapsed readers to jump into a specific area of the Marvel U. Superior Spider-Man follows the exploits of a Spider-Man whose essence has been replaced by that of his mortal enemy Doc Ock!
