Cult Of Carnage: Misery #4 (of 5)

Comicscore Index
Generally unfavorable ratings

Based on 1 critic ratings.


The new symbiotic monstrosity called Madness inadvertently forced Liz Allan to bond to the all-new MISERY symbiote, changing both her life and the world of the symbiotes FOREVER!

Imbued with all the powers and personalities of the LIFE FOUNDATION SYMBIOTES (and more!), Madness is a symbiotic force unlike any other in the Marvel Universe.

There is nowhere that Liz Allan can go where Madness cannot follow, no one she can ask for help who Madness cannot destroy and nothing she can do to stop the brutality of its onslaught.

    Cult of Carnage: Misery #4 lays out Liz Allan’s history as a supporting character across 60 years of Spider-Man and develops into a coherent and compelling timeline. My only question is, where has this character’s story been from the beginning of Misery? The extensive recap—retold in a dialogue between Liz and her symbiote across most of the issue—offers a hook for this anti-heroine, but doesn’t tie that hook into the issue’s cliffhangers or ongoing narrative in a satisfying fashion. When the final few sequences arrive to present ongoing troubles and one surprise addition to the cast, it all reads like so much continuity-bookkeeping. There are some immediate threats and Spider-Man is nearby, but presenting Liz’s story in a new light ultimately leaves Cult of Carnage: Misery feeling like another iteration of Liz’s cycle of suffering to support other narratives.
