List Rules Vote up your favorite interpretation of Carnage!

Carnage is arguably one the best villains in all of Spider-Man rogue's gallery, and that is saying quite a bit considering how impressive that roster is. There are many different variations of the character and dozens of formats the character has been used in. Be it video games, films, animated series, or alternate versions in comic books, the Carnage symbiote is in virtually every form of pop culture in one way or another. But which version of Carnage is the best?

We've decided to compile some of our favorite interpretations, renditions, and versions of Carnage here. Do you like playing against him in Maximum Carnage? Or do you prefer him in The Ultimate Spider-Man Game? Do you enjoy seeing him in animated form on Spider-Man Unlimited, or prefer him in the '90s animated series? Is Cletus Kasady the only true Carnage, or do you like Ben Reilly in the suit?

Here's the chance to see where it all lines up. What are the greatest interpretations of Carnage ever? Make sure to vote up all your favorites and vote down the versions of chaos incarnate that weren't interpreted well.

(And yes, we've included two of his spawn here that are basically Marvel's new interpretation of the character, but beyond two felt silly as there are so many symbiotes now.)
