Cletus isnt the brightest of Spider-mans foes but it doesnt seem to stop him very much he has a highschool degree. Even his symbiote isnt as smart as Venom's or it doesnt seem like it anyway however though he isnt a science genius he is a brilliant fighter on the battlefield
Cletus was a psychotic as a kid he killed his own father earlier on and went on killing many more after that. He used knifes and other weapons instead of relying on brute strength as Eddie Brock did. Because of this Carnage is given the amazing ability to change his hands and tendrils into axes swords and any other type of blade. He also can change his costume into regular clothing but seems to lack the ability to camoflauge like Venom. Carnage has also inherited the ability to not be detected by spiderman's Spider sense.
As any Symbiote Carnage is weak to sonics and fire. He was originally defeated with the Fantastic fours sonic blaster but in the maximum carnage series the gun didnt even affect him. However he trembled before the might of the flames. While Venom is the opposite he is much more tolerant to flames then his son. Also even with flames Carnage can cut himself when the symbiote is destroyed on the outer side. Now the symbiote is in his bloodstream making him nearly invincible. But he was recently killed by Sentry in the New Avengers though his body wasnt seen inside the ripped suit so it is possible he still is very much alive.
Argh Sentry must die!
When we first meet Carnage in Spiderman he is but a cellmate of one Eddie Brock. Cletus watched in amazement as his cell mate regained his symbiote and bursted through the prison wall escaping. He stood by the massive hole in the wall that Venom had made and where he had given birth to his son. The symbiote merged with Kassady creating Carnage!
The 90's cartoon Cletus was in the cell next to brock and hears Mordo
talking to Eddie saying that he will be given back his symbiote to serve Dormammu. Later on as Venom is having trouble dealing with War Machine and Spider-man Mordo offers Cletus the spawn of Venom as long as he will serve Dormammu. Cletus gladly excepts it and goes to Venoms aid. Venom however has a change of heart and fights his "son". Carnage beats the crap out of most of his enemies treating tanks like sardine cans as he puts it. He later releases Dormammu and is knocked into another dimension by Venom but taking his father with him.
(this was done quickly because of my messed up computer i'll post more pictures later)
