Enhanced Abilities: Carnageís symbiotic costume provides him with enhanced strength, agility and endurance. Carnageís strength is coincidentally greater than Spider-Man and Venomís.
Wall Crawling: Carnage is able to stick to almost any surface.
Symbiote: Carnage can fashion his costume as to imitate any material (such as clothes and skin) and create tendrils from any part of it. The length of these tendrils appears unlimited. He can also solidify parts of his costume to create various constructs (most often blades, axes, and razor-sharp talons), and shoot sharp projectiles towards his opponents. These projectiles remain solid for little more than ten seconds, after which they turn to dust. As with Venom, Carnage does not trigger Spider-Man's danger sense, does not need to breathe, and is capable of sensory perception from any part of his body. At most recent years, Carnage has also learned how to increase his mass by absorbing other Symbiotes, and send his costume through telephone lines by reducing it to a cellular level.
Regenerative Healing Factor: Carnage is able to rapidly regenerate damaged bodily tissues much faster and more extensively than an ordinary human.
Cletus Kasady was a convicted serial killer who shared the same cell with Edward Brock, the super-villain also known as Venom. At that time Brock was completely powerless and the extraterrestrial being that was his symbiotic costume was thought to have been killed by the living cancer known as Styx. In reality, however, the symbiote was just injured by Styx's decaying power and, after it had healed itself, went to find Brock in prison. As the symbiote freed Brock from prison, it also left behind a division of itself; in other words, it gave "birth" to an offspring. The offspring bonded with Kasady in a similar symbiotic process to Venom, and Kasady called his new incarnation Carnage.
