Human beings have an unending fascination with finding out why criminals commit horrific atrocities. What could make a person go off the deep end and actively operate against their fellow humans?
That curiosity, of course, carries over into our fiction and the pantheon of comic characters collected in the House of Ideas. Who are these costumed shirkers of social norms who do everything from blasting buildings to pursuing world domination? Here's where some of the best of the worst came from.
These days, Cletus Kasady and his symbiote plan on bringing an evil god back to life in ABSOLUTE CARNAGE, but the character's early days were still incredibly bloody. Even before joining up with the strange spawn of Venom in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #344-345, Kasady cut a bloody swath through his life, even as a child as seen in AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #362 which documents many of his more horrible youthful exploits. Going back even further, to Kasady’s birth, Carnage saved the infant Kasady from the brink of death, ensuring their lifelong connection. Now, the combined madness of both beings threatens all existence on Earth!
