Cletus Kasady just won’t die, will he? The homicidal maniac has risen from the grave before, and now he’s doing so again in Carnage Reigns, much to the chagrin of the heroic Miles Morales.
The Summer of Symbiotes will have Miles face a horror unlike any he’s known before and will force the young hero to muster all his courage. Here are some details about the story coming this May:
Cletus Kasady is back and badder than ever. With his soul trapped within the Extrembiote Armor created by Tony Stark during King in Black, Cletus has the means to level an untold amount of chaos and, well, carnage on New York City and the entire Marvel Universe. But like any good Tony Stark invention, the Extremis coursing through Cletus’ symbiotic veins needs POWER, and that means Cletus is HUNGRY. Good thing Brooklyn’s very own Spider-Man is there to stand in his way! If he survives their first encounter, that is.
“Carnage Reigns is an old-fashioned David and Goliath story pitting a greener Spider-Man against the most sadistic monster in the Marvel Universe—Cletus Kasady!” Paknadel explained to Bloody Disgusting. “Miles has only been this out of his depth on a handful of occasions, which is a gift from a storytelling perspective. I’ve really enjoyed crafting this tale with Cody Ziglar, and we’ve developed a really fun, really productive working shorthand and that fun is present on the page! We know this story will satisfy fans of both characters in their FIRST-EVER CROSSOVER!”
It certainly sounds like an exciting event. And here I thought Miles had it rough during the whole Red Messiah ordeal. Check out details for Carnage Reigns below, and stay tuned for more Marvel stories!
