Reading the solicit for #2, sounds like a new character/host could be appearing:
“FOR YEARS, the only host the dangerous CARNAGE symbiote knew was CLETUS KASADY. Sharing a bond unique even among symbiotes and their hosts, the two were the most notorious and prolific serial killers in the Marvel Universe. But after the events of EXTREME CARNAGE, Cletus’ codex has found a new home, leaving the Carnage symbiote adrift, alone… and deadlier than ever before!”
I haven’t been around the comic investing scene that long but would have assumed the Carnage symbiote merging with Detective Shayde in the latest issue would have been spec-worthy. I don’t hear anybody talking about it… any talk of this recent issue seems to focus solely on the new all-blood sword he forged in that issue.
Hey @ComicSpec, funny you should mention it. I had it in the spoilers for this past week, also, we find out how Cletus Kasady returns in Daredevil. But more to the point. Kasady will be merging with a new symbiote, called “Extrembiote” armor, in Carnage #11
CLETUS KASADY IS BACK! Years ago, Peter Parker spurned the Venom symbiote and it created a monster. Last summer, Cletus Kasady spurned the Carnage symbiote similarly, willingly rejecting it in favor of forcing his consciousness into the deadly “Extrembiote” armor. You’ve seen what happened to the Carnage symbiote in the months that followed… Now watch on in horror and discover what happened to Cletus!
Extrembiote armor was created during the King in Black when Iron Man fused armor with symbioses.
Carnage #12 called the armor a new type of symbiote, and gets new powers.
nd to an all-new type of symbiote, the EXTREMBIOTE, Cletus has a whole new array of deadly abilities
