Powers/Abilities: Spider-Carnage had the same spider-like abilities shared by numerous other Spider-totems, including superhuman strength and agility. While he was never shown to display it, he likely possessed a danger-warning Spider-Sense as well.
Due to his bonding with the alien Carnage symbiote, Spider-Carnage could also shapeshift his appearance to a limited degree. For example, he could alter his appearance to change clothing and he could form crude objects such as shields, axes, spears or even darts and webbing from his symbiote. His shapeshifting abilities apparently also extended to the number of fingers he appeared to have on his hands, as he was seen with four fingers with the symbiote was more in control and five when his own mind was in control.
Spider-Carnage was also a scientific prodigy, capable of understanding and building complex scientific devices such as attaching a Matter Disintegrator Bomb to an experimental interdimensional portal device as well as installing the combined device and designing a control program to manipulate it.
Height: Unrevealed (approximately 5'10")

cartoon episode, "Spider Wars, Chapter I: I Really, Really Hate Clones"
(fb)) - An expert in genetic cloning, scientist Miles Warren created a
clone of the distraught Peter Parker following the death of Parker's
Aunt May and the clone escaped into the night.
(Official Handbook of the Marvel
Universe A to Z HC Vol. 5 - Alternate Earths Appendix - BTS) -
Possessing the memories of the true Peter Parker, the clone began
believing himself to be the true Peter Parker and the true Parker was
fooled into believing he was the clone.
(Spider-Man cartoon episode, "Spider Wars, Chapter I: I Really, Really Hate Clones" (fb) - BTS) - When
the true Parker opted to stay out of the life of what he believed was
the true Peter Parker, the clone took over the costumed identity of
Spider-Man while the true Parker began using the identity of Ben Reilly.
(Spider-Man cartoon episode, "Spider Wars, Chapter I: I Really, Really Hate Clones" (fb)) - Hating Warren for what he had done and hating his perceived clone even more, the Spider-Man clone, still thinking himself to be the original Peter Parker, became even more angry when he discovered his supposed clone had decided to embark on a superheroic career of his own as the Scarlet Spider. When Dr. Curt Conners found unclear genetic evidence suggesting that Peter could be the real clone instead of the Scarlet Spider, the Peter Parker clone went over the edge. A short time later, when the Scarlet Spider was investigating the Kingpin, who had developed interdimensional portal technology, Peter interrupted as Spider-Man and attacked the Scarlet Spider in an attempt to kill him. During the fight, an alien symbiote emerged from one of the Kingpin's portals and, drawn to Spider-Man's hatred of the Scarlet Spider, bonded with him, driving the Peter Parker clone completely insane.
(Spider-Man cartoon episode, "Spider Wars, Chapter I: I Really, Really Hate Clones" (fb) - BTS) - Now calling himself Spider-Carnage, the Peter Parker clone waged war against New York City, destroying most of the buildings and working with the Kingpin, for whom he claimed he would create a mind control device to control the populace while secretly planning only to utilize the Kingpin's resources to destroy Earth using a magnified Matter Disintegrator Bomb. With the Kingpin fooled, Spider-Carnage, still believing he was the true Peter Parker, sent his agents Green Goblin and Hobgoblin out to acquire the Microwave Broadcaster from the roof of the J3 Communications, warning the Goblins and the Kingpin that they might encounter his supposed clone, Scarlet Spider.
(Spider-Man cartoon episode, "Spider Wars, Chapter I: I Really, Really Hate Clones") - After Earth-92131's Spider-Man arrived on Earth-39811 and failed to stop the Goblins from stealing the Microwave Broadcaster, Spider-Carnage appeared and enveloped Spider-Man-92131, whom he thought was his supposed clone, in symbiotic webbing, remarking on how he had been wondering when his "clone" would show up and how his supposed clone was even in his original costume. Exclaiming that Spider-Man-92131 must be obliterated because he really, REALLY hated clones, Spider-Carnage hurled Spider-Man-92131 against an air vent. Recognizing his own voice emanating from Spider-Carnage, Spider-Man-92131 escaped Spider-Carnage's symbiotic webbing and Spider-Carnage responded by hurling the crushed air vent at the hero. Spider-Man-92131 then tried to web up Spider-Carnage, who blocked the webbing by generating a symbiote shield. Spider-Carnage then pulled Spider-Man-92131 from a metal rooftop tower, laughing maniacally as he attempted to crush Spider-Man-92131 with his symbiote tendrils, only to have Spider-Man-92131 transported from his grasp. Unaware that Reality-92131's Beyonder had transported Spider-Man-92131 to safety, Spider-Carnage looked around confused and angry.
Hours after acquiring the Microwave Broadcaster from J3 Communications, Spider-Carnage and the Goblins arrived at Crime Central to meet up with the Kingpin and the Ultimate Slayer Alistair Smythe. When the Green Goblin apologized for being late due to running into another Spider-Man, Spider-Carnage claimed it was his interfering "clone" but reminded Kingpin that he only needed a few hours to assemble his ultimate weapon. Assuring the Kingpin he had acquired the final part of his weapon, Spider-Carnage maniacally stated that once his weapon was assembled, they would get what was coming to them. He then took an elevator down to begin assembling his weapon, laughing maniacally to himself as he departed. While Spider-Carnage worked, Spider-Man-92131 and a team of Spider-Men from across the Multiverse, having learned of Spider-Carnage's true plan from Reality-92131's Madame Web and Beyonder, secretly infiltrated Kingpin's Crime Central headquarters to stop Spider-Carnage. After defeating Hobgoblin and the Green Goblin, the remaining three Spider-Men made their way to Spider-Carnage, who was still tinkering with the dimensional transporter device as the Kingpin and Alistair Smythe watched. Smythe attempted to keep the Spider-Men busy as Kingpin and Spider-Carnage attempted to escape further into Crime Central but Earth-39811's Spider-Men blocked their exit and webbed up Spider-Carnage. Managing to squeeze symbiote tendrils through the webbing, Spider-Carnage transformed the tendrils into an axe and spear and cut himself free of the webbing. He was then hit by a sonic grenade hurled by Spider-Man-39811, who prepared to hurl three more grenades until his mutation disease flared up and he collapsed. Spider-Carnage and Kingpin then used the distraction to escape as Spider-Man-39811 mutated into Man-Spider.
(Spider-Man cartoon episode, "Spider
Wars, Chapter II: Farewell, Spider-Man") - While Scarlet Spider and
Earth-92131's Spider-Man dealt with Man-Spider-39811, Reality-92131's
Beyonder informed the Powerless Spider-Man of Earth-38119 that
Spider-Carnage had not yet detonated his Matter Disintegrator Bomb,
prompting Powerless Spider-Man to ask how he could help. During the
Spider-Men scuffle, Spider-Carnage managed to complete his weapon and
the Kingpin, still unaware Spider-Carnage planned to destroy Earth,
ordered Spider-Carnage to activate his supposed mind control device.
Spider-Carnage activated his weapon, opening a large interdimensional
portal above Crime Central, but he was interrupted by the arrival of
the Powerless Spider-Man, who hurled a sonic grenade at Spider-Carnage
and Kingpin. The Powerless Spider-Man immediately began deactivating
Spider-Carnage's weapon as Spider-Carnage reeled from the effects of
the sonic grenade but Spider-Carnage soon shook off the effects and
pulled the Powerless Spider-Man away from the weapon controls with a
symbiote tendril. Holding the Powerless Spider-Man in one hand,
Spider-Carnage reprogrammed his weapon and turned the Powerless
Spider-Man over to Kingpin. Before he could be killed, the Powerless
Spider-Man attempted to explain Spider-Carnage's plan of destruction to
the Kingpin, who refused to listen. Freed from their fight with
Man-Spider when the Beyonder transported Man-Spider away, Scarlet
Spider and Spider-Man-92131 tried to further convince the Kingpin that
Spider-Carnage planned to destroy the city but the insane
Spider-Carnage warned Kingpin not to listen to the heroes. Kingpin was
finally convinced when the interdimensional portal outside Crime
Central caused a tremor throughout the building and the Kingpin
demanded to know why Spider-Carnage would destroy everything.
Explaining how he had felt misunderstood and recalling memories of being tormented ever since he
had been bitten by a radioactive spider, Spider-Carnage announced his
plans to obliterate everyone, prompting the Kingpin to tackle him.
Ensnaring Kingpin in symbiote tendrils, Spider-Carnage activated the
countdown on his Matter Disintegrator Bomb but hurled Kingpin aside
when the Spider-Men tried to deactivate the Bomb. When Scarlet Spider
managed to tear out the interdimensional portal device, closing the
portal outside Crime Central, Spider-Carnage pulled the portal device
out of Scarlet Spider's hands. He then escaped through an
interdimensional portal to Earth-31198, where he began trying to
assemble his Matter Disintegrator Bomb anew with the help of
Earth-31198's Wilson Fisk, whom he duped by suggesting he replace
Earth-31198's Spider-Man to take over the city.
Madame Web transported Spider-Man-92131 to Earth-31198 to stop
Spider-Carnage, Spider-Carnage watched from Fisk's laboratory as
Spider-Man-92131 searched for him and soon sent the giant Spider-Robot
belonging to Earth-31198's Armored Spider-Man after Spider-Man-92131.
Spider-Man-92131 soon realized the Spider-Robot responded to verbal
commands and he and Spider-Carnage then went back and forth trying to
get the Spider-Robot to do their bidding until the Spider-Robot's head
exploded, unable to handle receiving orders from two Spider-Men at
once. A short time later, Wilson Fisk-31198 helped capture
Spider-Man-92131 and he was taken to Spider-Carnage, who still assumed
Spider-Man-92131 to be his perceived clone. Spider-Man-92131 attempted to tell
Fisk-31198 about Spider-Carnage's true plan to destroy everything but
Spider-Carnage webbed Spider-Man-92131's mouth shut. Kingpin then had
Spider-Carnage impersonate Spider-Man-31198 at the opening gala of
Earth-31198's Peter Parker Science Foundation with plans to deal with
Spider-Man-92131 later. Minutes later, having noticed "Peter Parker"'s
erratic behavior downstairs, Earth-31198's Gwen Stacy used a device
designed for her by the Armored Spider-Man-31198 to track his heartbeat
to locate the captive Spider-Man-92131. As Gwen worked to free
Spider-Man-92131, Spider-Carnage was downstairs giving a speech as
Peter Parker-31198 in which he assured everyone would get what they
deserve from him. Spider-Man-92131 interrupted the speech moments
later, prompting Spider-Carnage to reveal his ruse and fire symbiote
darts at the hero. The two then fiercely fought as the crowd tried to
understand why there were two Spider-Men present but when
Spider-Carnage got the upper hand and nearly killed Spider-Man-92131 by
transforming his hand into a symbiote axe, Gwen Stacy fired a sonic
blaster at Spider-Carnage. Wilson Fisk-31198 quickly grabbed the
blaster from Gwen's hands and Spider-Carnage took Gwen hostage and
swung off into the night, exclaiming that he would destroy everyone.
Spider-Man-92131 pursued but paused as Spider-Carnage swung by,
thinking of how they were both Peter Parker and what he could do to
understand Spider-Carnage's mentality. Deducing that Spider-Carnage was
more confused than anything else, Spider-Man-92131 thought there was
only one person who could help Spider-Carnage remember right from
With Gwen his captive,
Spider-Carnage recalibrated his interdimensional portal device to allow
the creation of a portal that would suck in and destroy all matter and
he began setting up the portal device to do just that. Spider-Man-92131
soon located Spider-Carnage using the heartbeat tracking device Gwen
had earlier used to find him. Angry that Spider-Man-92131 had followed
him, Spider-Carnage dangled Gwen Stacy over the side of the building
and bragged about his plan to Spider-Man-92131, who was horrified at
Spider-Carnage's actions. Spider-Man-92131 then accused Spider-Carnage
of being overtaken by his symbiote and exclaimed that he had to reach
the real Peter Parker inside Spider-Carnage. When Spider-Carnage
insisted that Peter Parker was gone, Spider-Man-92131 revealed
Earth-31198's still living Ben Parker. Recalling the true Peter Parker's memories of a fishing trip with
his reality's Uncle Ben, Spider-Carnage admitted his love for Uncle Ben
and collapsed to his knees in tears. Reminding Spider-Carnage of his
lesson of great power and great responsibility, Ben-31198 pleaded with
Spider-Carnage to rid himself of the evil alien symbiote for the good
of everyone. Seeing the error of his ways and knowing Ben was right,
Spider-Carnage attempted to force the symbiote from his body but the
symbiote refused to give up its bond to Spider-Carnage. Unable to bear
the pain of separation from the symbiote, Spider-Carnage grabbed the
portal device, closed the portal in Earth-31198, then opened another
portal and dove in, vaporizing himself. A shocked Spider-Man-92131
remarked that he should have stopped Spider-Carnage but Ben-31198
commented that Spider-Carnage had done what he felt was best for
himself and everyone.

the cartoon episodes certainly seemed to be written with the true Peter
Parker being Spider-Carnage, it did leave a little up to speculation by
showing Dr. Connors' inconclusive suspicions that Spider-Carnage was
the clone and Scarlet Spider, the true Peter Parker. Almost a decade
later, the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A to Z HC Vol. 5's
Alternate Universes Appendix entry on Earth-98311 confirmed that
Spider-Carnage was indeed the clone and that Scarlet Spider was the
original Peter Parker. Big thanks to Copeinator123 for pointing out

and she died at some point after he had become Spider-Man. Having
already lost his Uncle Ben, Peter was devastated at losing May and the
loss nearly unhinged his mind, prompting him to work with genetic

implanted with the true Peter Parker's memories of Aunt May.
