"We're gonna paint the whole damn world red!" - Carnage

As a duo, the symbiote Carnage and his host Cletus Kasady create one of the deadliest villains in all of the Marvel Universe. Deranged, demented, and deadly, the duo complement each other with aggressive tendencies and vile behavior. But Kasady isn't the only being to host the Carnage symbiote. Throughout the years, the being has bonded with several other creatures, but always comes back to Kasady. Here is a look at just a few of the different hosts to bond with Carnage. Vote up the most interesting.  

  • Using his Green Goblin formula and the DNA of Carnage, Norman Osborn is able to become the Red Goblin.

    The upgrade gives Osborn superhuman powers and abilities, thus creating a much deadlier version of Spider-Man's classic foe.

  • The Carnage symbiote bonds with Eddie Brock on Venom Island after the events of "Absolute Carnage." Feeding off his fears, the symbiote plans on using the ex-con as a tool to destroy every single person on the planet.

    A clash of lightning sent by Thor helps separate the symbiote from Brock.

    A Great White Shark (AKA The Crimson Leviathan)

    While escaping the Isla de Huesos, Carnage bonds with the vicious finned carnivore and lives in the ocean until he is able to find a more acceptable host.

  • After the Carnage symbiote temporarily leaves Cletus Kasady, he attempts to destroy his home world by using the Silver Surfer as a host. But before he can exact revenge, memories of Cletus's terrible childhood flood the entity, which mirror the traumatic memories of Norrin Radd, the Silver Surfer's original personality.

    As a result, Cosmic Carnage has a change of heart and returns Carnage to Kletus, but not before the Surfer can encase the villain in a cell made of ethereal energy.
