Off My Mind: What Will The Return of Carnage Bring?
by Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero on
Who will be Carnage's new host? Will there be a host?
We know that during the break out at the Raft in the first New Avengers series, Sentry took Carnage into space and ripped him in half. There is some question as to whether or not Cletus was inside Carnage at the time.
From Marvel's solicits, Cletus will not be the host for Carnage as the symbiote targets Spider-Man and Iron Man. We knew it was a matter of time until Carnage returned from the dead. As much as I didn't like Carnage, I can't say I'm exactly thrilled with the idea of 'it' having a new host.

The same could be said for Venom. I've always preferred Eddie Brock as Venom, even if he went a little soft. It goes back to perhaps trying to make him a more marketable character. Someone that threatens to "eat your brains" can't really be considered a hero.
What will a new host mean for Carnage? There was apparently a rumor that the host would be female this time. We've already seen a female symbiote and the images for the covers of the first two issues don't suggest a female host.
What kind of host could we expect once the suit finally finds one? Even though I wasn't a fan of Cletus, I do feel he should remain as Carnage. The idea of Carnage was a deadly symbiote. I'd hate to see some other random "killer" get bonded with Carnage and start things up again.
The fact that Zeb Wells is writing the series gives me some hope. I would like to think that there is a nice game plan being set in motion and there's a reason that now is the time for the return of Carnage. It should be interesting to see what happens in this five issue mini series. Will we see Mac Gargan as Venom and Eddie Brock as Anti-Venom show up? Will we see a new host for Carnage? I'm really hoping this mini series changes how I feel about Carnage. I'm actually looking forward to it.
