Hello, fellow Chu’se heads. I think I may have stumbled onto something. Let me know what you think.
I just finished reading this weeks Red Goblin: Red Death #1. Its a series of short stories about Norman, Normie and The Red Goblin. In the last story theres a part where Norman has realized that the Carnage symbiote has purged all the nanites that Spidey put in him to keep him sane. That was why Norman sought the Carnage symbiote in first place. After Norman realizes all the nanites are gone, he can still hear in his head a faint cry to ‘protect innocents’. He then, as Red Goblin, seems to purge a small peice of black symbiote goo out of his Carnage symbiote. Then Norman claims to be ‘free’.
Meanwhile, Normie is on the bus helping/harassing this other kid named Eduardo. The story is being narrated by Eduardos father.
So, Normie has this encounter with this other kid, after (implied) the norman/carnage venom purge. Normie goes on to kidnap this other kid, Eduardo…blah blah blah…and eventually lets Eduardo free…Eduardo goes home, where his dad, the narrator, is putting him to bed. Normie had broken Eduardos headphones earlier in the story on the bus, but Eduardos headphones are now fixed. Eduardo goes on to tells his dad that the ‘magic goo’ fixed the broken headphones. Magic goo? The dad then wishes him good night and goes to turn out the light, and asks his son if he wants him to keep the door open so he wont be scared. The kid says ‘no’, ‘i will never be afraid again’. Kid puts his head on pillow. Dad turns out lights and shuts door. Then this.
Last panel. Eduardos face turns into/is a symbiote/venom like face. I think this kid, Eduardo, was just infected by a symbiote spawn that was purged from the Carnage symbiote, by Norman. Normie picked it up and secretly gave it to this other kid. That would make this the first cameo of this new symbiote/kid.
Oh…and Eduardo, after his dad turns the lights out, has lil whispering black voice bubbles, the same black voice bubbles that the purged black goo had, as if the symbiote goo is speaking through/to him…
So, what do you think? Has Normies classmate, Eduardo, been infected with a new symbiote spawn?
