Carnage is a super-villain composed of two separate evil beings. The first is Cletus Kassady, an unstable madman obsessed with violence who was born inside of the Ravenscroft Institute for the Criminally Insane. The other being is the Carnage-Symbiote, the child of the alien venom-symbiote. The two beings were exposed to one another when the Venom-Symbiote broke Cletus's cell-mate Eddie Brock (Venom) out of prison and left behind the Carnage symbiotic which was attracted to Cletus's insanity causing the two of them to bond. Unlike Venom which sees themselves as two beings (the Symbiote and Eddie) Carnage sees itself as a single creature born from Cletus and the Symbiote. Carnage is a violent psychopath who enjoys mayhem and destruction which has brought him into conflict with not only Spiderman, but Venom as well.
Carnage was one of the inmates that had broken out of Ryker's during the super villain breakout.
