This July, the five Life Symbiotes – Phage, Scream, Lasher, Riot and Agony – will face their greatest challenge yet, courtesy of their big bad older brother Carnage in EXTREME CARNAGE ALPHA #1 from Eisner-nominated writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson (artist TBC).
The Life Foundation symbiotes have always tried to reconcile the sometimes-noble intentions of their hosts with the often-bloodthirsty impulses of the symbiotes. But the Life Foundation symbiotes aren’t the only symbiotes who find themselves reinvented after KING IN BLACK and Carnage has plans for his younger siblings.
Speaking about the series, Johnson said “After King in Black, everything we thought we knew about the symbiotes will have changed. Every man, woman, and child in the Marvel Universe will finally understand the massive threat the symbiotes represent, and the symbiotes that are still among us are now in the crosshairs of some extremely angry, scared, and powerful forces.”
He continued, adding “In the pages of EXTREME CARNAGE, we’ll not only explain what Carnage is in this new, post-King in Black era, but also see a return-to-form for the deadliest symbiotes that have ever lived while putting them on a lethal new path for the future.”
Stay tuned for more information on EXTREME CARNAGE and the whole explosive family reunion in the coming weeks.
