Carnage #9

Comicscore Index
Mixed or average ratings

Based on 3 critic ratings.

The Carnage symbiote painfully and viciously extracted what it wanted out of Malekith the Accursed – but godhood remains just out of its reach.

Wracked with an insatiable lust and longing for power since its communion with Knull, the symbiote is missing only one thing to level untold destruction across the universe: a weapon.

    Carnage #9 establishes the next stage of the titular symbiote’s mythical journey, and introduces a mysterious new character who could prove vital to bringing this quest for god-like power to an end.

    Carnage #9 continues where the story left off in the previous issue with Carnage and Kenneth Neely arriving on Nidavellir for someone in particular. The comic finally reveals just what the Canrage symbiote has in store for its piece of the Venom symbiote codex. Before that reveal, the comic feels a little slow and lacking momentum in the action and dialogue interactions. Hopefully the next issue turns the excitement back up.

    Following a detour in issue #8, the latest installment of Carnage picks up in a more logical spot that’s after the events of issue #7. Carnage itself is still in the process of trying to essentially become an unstoppable force through the newfound power of Norse tech and abilities. Outside of this broad aim, though, Carnage #9 doesn’t do much else to push the story forward other than reveal the titular character’s next big goal. At this point, I’m more curious to see what Carnage intends to do with its more grand plan, but I’m still enjoying the journey along the way.
