Warning: SPOILERS for Net Of Venom: Cult Of Carnage #1
Spider-Man has had loads of clones, however none is extra grotesque than the six-limbed freak generally known as the Doppelganger. In Marvel’s new Cult of Carnage, the Doppelganger is given a brand new mission by his father… and it is extra disgusting than followers shall be prepared for.
The nightmare clone was created to reply a query: what would Spider-Man be with out his unrelenting ethical code and sense of duty? What if he turned an assault canine, and never a hero? What if he had six arms, sharp tooth, razor webbing, and claws as a substitute of fingers? The reply is The Doppelganger, and imagine it or not, he simply turned an much more twisted and ugly henchman to his father, Carnage.
It is all a part of the following large risk to the Marvel Universe. However earlier than we get into what he is doing that’s so ugly, even by Carnage’s requirements… readers would possibly need to sit down.
Meet Doppelganger, The ‘Son’ of Carnage
Followers will most likely know this clone from the Most Carnage sequence (later tailored to online game type) when Doppelganger launched an assault on Carnage and his lover Shriek. Carnage needs to do what he does finest, and kill the Doppelganger… however Shriek takes a shine to him. After some arguing between the 2 (younger love, proper?) they turn into the demented pseudo mother and father to Doppelganger. On this twisted household dynamic, Doppelganger clearly favors his mom, serving to her to assault Spider-man as an insanely harmful assault canine and constant protector.
On his personal Doppelganger was a terrifyingly deranged and feral clone of Spider-Man. However when Doppelganger served at Carnage and Shriek’s command, they can direct the creature’s energy, making him an much more harmful risk. His mom Shriek genuinely cared about seeing Doppelganger survive. However Carnage… nicely, he is precisely the sort of father followers count on him to be.
Carnage isn’t any higher at taking part in ‘Dad’ than Cletus Kasady would have been, which means he makes an attempt to kill “Dopey” each time Shriek’s child boy will get on his nerves. When Carnage lastly activates Shriek and makes an attempt to kill her, Doppelganger protects his mom and will get stabbed and tossed off a skyscraper for it. Doppelganger would later resurface in Carnage #1 doing battle with Spider-Man, however getting shot and killed within the course of. After getting revived (once more), Doppelganger, Shriek, and Carnage reunite to wreak household havoc throughout Manhattan.
That is the final time the Carnage household has made headlines in Marvel’s Universe, except for the occasions of Carnage, U.S.A.. In that terrifying story, Cletus Kasady contaminated the complete city of Doverton, Colorado along with his Carnage symbiote, successfully taking up the complete city. And that is precisely the place Cult of Carnage picks again up years later… and the place Doppelganger serves his daddy within the nastiest method but.
Doppelganger is Again For ‘Absolute Carnage’
The primary situation of Net of Venom: Cult of Carnage units up the ABSOLUTE CARNAGE occasion coming later this yr, and exhibits how unprepared the Marvel Universe actually is. Misty Knight is on the hunt for her fellow agent John Jameson, final seen in–you guessed it–Doverton, Colorado. After discovering John bare and afraid, rambling that “God is coming”, Misty helps him recall the previous few months within the wake of Carnage U.S.A.. John takes Misty and the readers on a sequence of flashbacks, describing his hunt for the person or girl who has been mutilating the our bodies of Doverton residents.
There’s only one factor that the victims have in widespread: they had been all contaminated with the Carnage symbiote through the occasion. Properly, that and the best way that they had been killed and mutilated. And because of the problem’s most disgusting second, how and why Doppelganger is committing the ugly acts. For sure, stomach-turning SPOILERS forward.
