    Didn't see a thread for it, so I decided to make one. Grabbed the first issue yesterday, so far it's awesome!

    Wondering if any of you guys have started to read the new Carnage series from Marvel. Even though Cletus Kasady died via the Sentry in 2005, the symbiote returns with a new host, along with some of his older teammates.

    It sucks that they offed Kasady, but it's a comic book, he's prone to return at any time. I thought the best part of the Carnage character was his twisted belief of unnatural laws and civility, law of the jungle, in his mind he's the hero for restoring chaos to the world. I fear whoever gets put into that symbiote next is just going to be kill crazed with no rhyme or reason, kind of like how Carnage has been miswritten in the last 10 years. Still, awesome to see Shriek and Doppelganger again, thought six arms was officially dead.

    The writers stated that the new host would be female, which defies all the promo art so far. Still, might make it more interesting, we'll see.

    It it's a chick, I hope she's nothing like Shriek...She was kinda annoying in Maximum Carnage.

    And Kasady is officially dead? Damn. Since he and Carnage were perma-bonded, does that mean a chance to see a Carnage Vs. Carnage fight?

    I'll probably pick up the trade, since I used to enjoy the character way back in his/its first few appearances, but my enthusiasm for the symbiotes has cooled down a lot over the years. At least Marvel's trying to revamp one of the earlier symbiote characters, rather than create yet another 'heroic' symbiote who'll disappear immediately into limbo.

    They seemed to change that on a whim though... before his blood was bonded to the symboite so it could always respawn and he wasn't vulnerable to sonics, but that changed with the writers, much like everything else about the character.

    Shriek and Doppelganger? SOLD. Just put Carrion in there and I'll be in '90s comic book heaven.

    Seriously, heroic symbiotes just never seem to stick around.

    Toxin: Awesome, monsterous design, interesting backstory, never seen again.

    Anti-Venom: Unique twist on an anti-heroesque character, was a promenant character in a recent Spidey storyline, never seen again.

    Talk about fustrating.

    symbiotes hosts never stick around, and each has a distinct personality and design.

    Key word being recent story. And since his initial appearance he starred in his own mini series.

    Anyway I'm waiting on a Carnage trade here.

    What about that Hybrid guy?

    And Toxin...I miss him. I loved how his lower torso was styled.

    Eh, I can wait; collecting the Evangelion manga kind of puts a 1 - 1.5 year wait for a story into perspective. Of course, since Carnage isn't a project I'm massively enthused about, by the time it hits TPB, I'll probably have forgotten why I was interested and will end up skipping it.

    Yeah, Hybrid was the first one. Appeared in some back-up features, IIRC, and then promptly disappeared. Didn't help that his 'host' was fairly cliched.

    Not a heroic symbiote, but I think Scream/Donna is still floating around the Marvel U somewhere too.

    Anti-Venom was a cool idea but I just don't like the name, it seems like they couldn't find a original name for him (I would have used Monev) but I wait for the trade seeing how I already missed issue one.

    I enjoyed Carnage and im glad he's back in action.

    Monev? That's awful. At least Anti-Venom makes sense...

    I would use Anodyne. It's basically another, more epic sounding word for antidote (which goes in hand with the Anti Venom idea).
