Death is Not the End - How Did Carnage Survive Being Torn Into Two Pieces by the Sentry?

In this feature, we spotlight the outlandish explanations for comic book characters (mostly super-villains) surviving seeming certain death.

Today, in response to a few folks who asked the question during my recent post about how Carnage's current symbiote didn't actually come from Venom, we look at how Carnage survived being torn into half by the Sentry during the first New Avengers storyline...

In 2004's New Avengers #1 (by Brian Michael Bendis, David Finch and Danny Miki), Matt Murdock and Foggy Nelson, assisted by Jessica Drew (actually a Skrull, but that doesn't really tie into any of this), went to go visit the Sentry in a prison for superhumans. While there, Electro orchestrated a breakout of the prison.

This led to New Avengers #2, where a group of disparate heroes came together to form a new Avengers team in their defense of the breakout.

One of the prisoners released was Carnage, who attacked Matt, Foggy and "Jessica"...

Other villains got involved and finally, the Sentry was compelled to get out of his stupor and get involved and he did so in striking fashion...

Okay, so how does one get out of THAT?
