SHRIEK – Carnage follows this sonic beam-generating mutant (both literally and figuratively). She’s got a voice that can shatter her foes’ bodies and minds.

RUBY THURSDAY – Enhanced with organic circuitry to bowl over any who oppose her. She’s been everything from thief to gambler to political candidate, leaving no wicked career path unexplored.

VIPER – A ruler, leader, and constant force of chaos for Wolverine. This highly trained assassin is deadly and devastating with any weapon.

SHATHRA – A woman consumed by more hate and rage than any mere mortal could handle. She was transformed by this darkness and took the frightening form of a Spider Wasp.
