Cletus Kassidy had a rough childhood and killed his parents at the age of five. After going to prison several times, he was put into an asylum. During his time at the asylum, the Venom symbiote had a red offspring. The new symbiote found Kassidy and allowed him to break out of the asylum. In his first confrontation with him, Spider-Man had to team up with Venom in order to stop him. He has been a common foe of Spider-Man ever since.
Carnage was one of the inmates that had broken out of Ryker's during the super villain breakout.
- In one of the trailers of LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is a scene of Venom breaking out from jail, but in the game he was replaced by Carnage.
- He has the same character movement and abillites (except Big Figure transform) as Venom.
