Spider-Verse: Spider-Carnage

Spider-Verse is a currently running event in the Spider-Man comics that will involve every* Spider-Man we've ever met, including several Spider-Women and Spider-Girls (not to mention Scarlet Spiders and Spider-Hams and whatnot), and several brand-new versions. The premise is simple: there's a group of people trying to wipe out every Spider character across the multiverse, so all the Spider characters will team up to stop them. This is, of course, a massive event - multimedia even, since it will also feature in the Spider-Man Unlimited video game and the animated series Ultimate Spider-Man - and given the premise, it's only natural that it will add a few entries to this catalog.

*I say "every" because Marvel says "every", but there are a few that won't be showing up, such as Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield. (Although see here for more information on that.)

Today's entry is Spider-Carnage.

This version of Carnage first appeared in the Ultimate Spider-Man episode "Carnage" (2.08, March 2013). In the episode, Carnage begins as an "improved" version of the Venom symbiote, which Harry Osborn forcefully bonds to Peter Parker. Perhaps a coincidence or perhaps because Peter is Spider-Man, the symbiote takes on the spider-esque appearance you see above.

This Carnage appears in a cameo in Amazing Spider-Man #9 (October 2014), as seen below.
