After the first Carrion died, in an effort to discredit the believed-dead Warren with the worshipful New Men who had started a Cult of the Jackal, the High Evolutionary planted a false journal that claimed Warren never cloned humans at all but rather used genetic viruses to rewrite DNA. He left a sample of the Carrion virus to "prove" the point, which was found by Malcolm McBride, a science graduate student at ESU who bore Peter Parker a grudge for losing a research grant to him. The virus infected Malcolm and another Carrion was born. The virus carried Warren's memories so Carrion initially believed he was a clone and again set out to avenge Gwen Stacy's death.
