Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Carnage USA #2 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

Carnage laughs as Spider-Man battles his symbiote-infected teammates. About to be slammed by Evil Thing, he is rescued by a fuel truck and a Molotov Cocktail setting Ben on fire as townspeople carry him off. The Doverton resistance takes Spidey to their base, the former Ralsby family home, complete with a private zoo. Sheriff Eric Morrell is the leader and worried about his wife and children....

At the US Emergency Response Center, General Duggan recruits the symbiote Scorn (Dr Tanis Nieves) on a mission with Mercury Team, four Special Forces men with symbiote enhancements.. They are given until sunrise to complete their mission after which the town will be napalmed out of existence....

Downtown, Cletus Kasady takes great glee in terrorizing Eric's wife Hannah into agreeing to go out and bring back her husband's head—and then she and her two kids are turned into hideous versions of Carnage....
