WARNING: The following article contains spoilers for Absolute Carnage: Miles Morales #2 by Saladin Ahmed, Federico Vicentini, Erick Arciniega and VC's Cory Petit, on sale Wednesday, Sept. 25.
Miles Morales became the first Marvel hero to fall into the clutches of Cletus Kasady/Carnage in Absolute Carnage #2. The blockbuster event sees the serial killer hunting anyone who has ever been a host for an alien symbiote, in order to steal a codex out of their spines.
While Miles has never worn a symbiote, that doesn't stop Carnage from taking possession of his body. No longer in control, Miles is helpless to put up a fight, and now has to fight for his very soul before he fully succumbs to Carnage's twisted urges. If you thought Carnage looked terrifying in his new form, then get a look at a symbiote-possessed, six-armed Miles Morales.
Carnage and Miles (on the left) almost look like blood-soaked twins, with no visible trace of our hero. To make matters worse, Carnage plans to set Miles loose to kill a man. "A real pain, but one whose death will sow confusion and fear in those around us," Carnage says. "I know you'll do me proud."
Fans also got a glimpse at the Miles-Carnage hybrid on artist Javier Garron's "design variant" cover for Absolute Carnage #1. "Couldn't share it until now because spoilers, but check out [Javier Garron's] sick design variant for Absolute Carnage: Miles Morales #1," Ahmed wrote. "This is the series to check out if you've been asking about Miles getting into the symbiote mix!"
