Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Carnage #5 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

CEO Michael Hall is hustled away in a helicopter by his security team as Mass Carnage hunts for him. Spider-Man and Iron Man take on the massive monster as Shriek uses her powers to whip up a murderous mob. Shellhead links to Carnage to try to seize control of the Hall tech inside but instead the Symbiote enters Tony's circuits and Spidey has to lure Carnage away until Tony can get back online. Shriek taunts Dr Tanis Nieves until Tanis allows her prosthetic arm to leave Shriek and return to her (Tanis') body, transforming Tanis into the new symbiote Scorn. Scorn forces Shriek to emit a piercing scream that weakens Mass Carnage so that Spidey and Shellhead can defeat it but Kasady escapes....

Epilogue: Shriek is in a coma, Tanis is under observation at Stark Industries. In the meantime, Kletus Kasady has the Doppelganger torturing Michael Hall while planning his comeback....
