"What's black and white and red all over? The city, with Venom, Anti-Venom and Carnage on the loose."
— Mission Preview
|Maria Hill:||We've got a couple of new symbiotes on the loose, and what appears to be a new variant of Test subjects.|
|Tony Stark:||One of the symbiotes is Eddie Brock. He's never been right since he was the original Venom and now he's gone completely bonkers. He calls himself Anti-Venom.
The other one is bright red, also bugfrak crazy, and calls itself Carnage.
|Agent Coulson:||That is, we note, an aspirational moniker. As in carnage is what it wants to create.|
|Maria Hill:||Is creating. It's bad out there.|
|Tony Stark:||We've got so damn many symbiotes running around no one can keep track of how many there are.|
|Maria Hill:||At least one of them is on our side. Agent, you already know Flash Thompson.|
|Agent Coulson:||We need to see if we can get Anti-Venom under control. Flash, that'll be your first mission.|
|Agent Venom:||Let's get rolling.|
|Tony Stark:||Spider Man, you check into a possible Maggia Link. The warehouse where we found the four dead symbiotes hosts was leased to one Adrian Toomes.|
|Spider-Man:||Vulture's gone into real estate? I'll ask for him some tips and pointers.|
Daredevil has volunteered to see whether Sandman's telling the truth about wanting to go legit... and also about whether he's quitting the Maggia.
|Maria Hill:||Spider-Man's taking a beating out there, so he can't do it, but someone should check out Sandman's story. We have Daredevil in the vicinity of Sandman's last known location. Let's see what we can uncover.|
|Daredevil:||I can't believe I'm saying this, but I think Sandman's telling the truth. He's legitimately scared that the Vulture and the Green Goblin are going to get him killed.
No sign of the Maggia being involved, at least that I can find.
|Maria Hill:||Could still be a setup. Let's continue to monitor Sandman and make sure his story checks out.|
While we go symbiote hunting, Thundra has offered to help contain the Test Subjects.
|Maria Hill:||Thundra, we'd like to enlist your help containing some Test Subject groups while we get started hunting symbiotes.|
|Thundra:||You will need all the help you can find.|
|Maria Hill:||I'm sure you'll be more than enough.|
|Thundra:||These are not like the others... what has changed?|
|Mr. Fantastic:||It's a different serum... at least we think it is. We'll need more samples before we can say with any certainty.|
We've got more Test Subject samples to analyze. Get them to S.H.I.E.L.D. labs for testing so we can find out whether the Green Goblin is responsible.
We're still trying to figure out if there's a Maggia angle. Keep an eye on the Vulture and see if he makes contact with any Maggia elements.
|Tony Stark:||I'm still thinking the Maggia must be involved somehow. It's worth a closer look.|
|Tony Stark:||Our intel has been feeding us red herrings, it seems. Maybe this is just the Green Goblin's show.|
A huge new group of Test Subjects is mustering down on Canal Street. Hulk is nearby. He can keep them occupied while we stay focused on the symbiotes.
|Hulk:||Test Subjects don't scare me.|
|Agent Coulson:||Good. Then you won't mind keeping them out of our agents' hair while we look for symbiotes.|
|Hulk:||Are you asking?|
|Agent Coulson:||Yes. We're asking. Please.|
|Hulk:||Did you find the symbiotes yet?|
|Agent Coulson:||Not all of them. We're still going to need you.|
|Hulk:||You always do.|
MiniBoss - Anti-Venom
|Spider-Man:||Hey, it's Venom. Boy, am I glad to see him. It's been months since I had to worry about being dismembered by a psychotic alien symbiote.
Where you headed, Tall, Dark, and Drooly?
|Out to eliminate my offspring. All of them. Then I will come back for you, Spider-meat...||Venom:|
|Spider-Man:||That sounds really delicious, but must be an acqui--uh oh. Anti-Venom.
Hey, Flash? A little help here?
|You are polluted with the symbiote! I will draw it from you like the toxin it is, and destroy it!||Anti-Venom:|
|Agent Venom:||Um, you've got a little symbiote issue yourself.|
|I was given this power to end the symbiote threat. Fight fire with fire, fight alien symbiote with alien symbiote.||Anti-Venom:|
|Agent Venom:||Okay, I get that. But what happens when you're the only symbiote left?|
|That answer will be revealed... once I have finished my task!||Anti-Venom:|
|The symbiote is a part of me, but together we are righteous. Who's next?||Anti-Venom:|
|Agent Venom:||Let's try rational discussion this time. How's that sound?|
|Agent Venom:||That guy's gone completely around the bend.|
|Maria Hill:||He's a zealot, but we need him.|
|Spider-Man:||Like a hole in our collective head, we do. Seems like maybe we ought to stick him on the Raft until he comes to his senses.|
|Maria Hill:||No. He's crazy, but his actions are in line with our own. We need symbiotes to fight symbiotes effectively. Flash is one; Eddie's going to be another.|
|Spider-Man:||Who gets the next crack at convincing him?|
|Maria Hill:||Why don't you give it a try, Spider-Man?|
|Spider-Man:||I knew I should have kept my mouth shut.|
MiniBoss - Vulture
|Sandman:||Psst. Hey, Spider-Man. Vulture's right here.
There's his old bald head. Lemme bust it. Agent, I need some help.
|Spider-Man:||Am I hearing this right? You want our help with the Vulture? Like, you're pretending to be a good guy?|
|Sandman:||No pretending, wall-crawler. I'm out of the villain biz. Vulture's locked up with Green Goblin. They're in over their heads and I'm not gonna lose mine. Tell Fury I'll play nice.|
|Spider-Man:||Are you guys hearing this?|
|Maria Hill:||Go with it for now, Spider-Man. But watch Sandman carefully.|
|What do you think you're doing, Flint? The Green Goblin is not a man you want to cross.||Vulture:|
|Sandman:||I'd rather cross him than get in the middle of this symbiote thing. Goblin's gonna get us all killed.|
|That will be your fate in any case, it seems.||Vulture:|
|Such are the rewards of treachery.||Vulture:|
|Sandman:||I'm stayin' on your tail, Vulture. Keeps me out of Venom's way, if nothin' else.|
|Spider-Man:||So, here's where you explain about the Green Goblin thing.|
|Sandman:||He saw what the Brotherhood was doing with the MGH serum and decided to try the same thing with his goblin serum.|
|Spider-Man:||Presto. That explains the new Test Subjects.|
Boss - Scream
|Spider-Man:||Oh joy. Another one.|
|Agent Venom:||That one's called Scream.|
|Spider-Man:||Such lovely monikers they all choose.|
|Agent Coulson:||She was one of five symbiotes created from little seeds cultured out of the original Venom symbiote. Where are the other four, I wonder...?|
|Spider-Man:||Okay, fine. I'll ask her.|
|Spider-Man:||Because you're all crazy and so forth, I don't expect a straight answer here, but I have to ask: we're looking for four missing symbiotes. You know anything about that? Hmmmm?|
|I killed them. They were my seedmates and would have killed me. Nature, red in tooth and claw!||Scream:|
|Spider-Man:||Come on, Screamy. Symbiotes don't stay dead. You're holding back on me. Where did the other four really go?|
|Let's just say you've got a surprise in store...||Scream:|
|Spider-Man:||I'm outta here. Not at my best when I try to web-sling with dented ribs...|
|Spider-Man:||Anybody seen Flash? I could use a hand here.|
|Spider-Man:||You know what's weird? She calls herself Scream even though symbiotes don't like sonic weapons.|
|Tony Stark:||Wish you'd asked her about the Green Goblin. Vulture said he was involved, and we've isolated the goblin serum as part of what's juicing up these new Test Subjects.|
|Spider-Man:||Sorrr-reee, Tony. Next time I'll do a better job interrogating her while she tries to tear me into little shreds.|
|Tony Stark:||That would be good.|
|Tony Stark:||Anti-Venom is still kooky, we haven't found Carnage, now Scream's in the picture... we've got some work to do.|
|Maria Hill:||So let's get to it.|
|Agent Coulson:||Carnage was sighted most recently up near Pier 94. Sweep that area next. We have to flush him out.|
|Tony Stark:||And remember, keep an eye out for the Green Goblin. If any of what Sandman said pans out, we've got a bigger fight on our hands.|
Group Boss - Hybrid
|Maria Hill:||What is that thing?|
|Agent Venom:||Hybrid. It is made from the other four symbiote seeds Scream was talking about.|
|Spider-Man:||Yikes. And we think Gobbie's got a hand in this thing?|
|Maria Hill:||We're still trying to confirm the Green Goblin's role in this, but right now our job is to get Hybrid contained. We can't have a symbiote loose on the streets.|
|Tony Stark:||Well this day's just getting worse and worse. At what point do we just nuke it from orbit?|
|Agent Coulson:||Hold on a minute. Hybrid doesn't have a track record for destruction like Carnage or Venom. We know nothing about this symbiote yet. They're not all bad, as we've seen with Agent Venom.|
|Spider-Man:||Maybe we can get Eddie to chase this one down and suck out all its powers.|
|Maria Hill:||One more reason for you to try to talk some sense into him.|
|Spider-Man:||Hoo boy. I get all the fun jobs.|
"To stop the symbiote epidemic from spreading further, S.H.I.E.L.D. needs an Anti-Venom."
— Mission Preview
|Tony Stark:||Carnage, Hybrid, and Scream are raising hell around here.|
|Maria Hill:||While we try to pin them down, we're also continuing our effort to refocus Anti-Venom. We need him.|
|Spider-Man:||Yeah, yeah, I know. Spider-Man, go talk to Eddie. He'll listen to you. He won't try to kill you or anything.|
|Maria Hill:||That's about the size of it. Let's get started.|
Spider-Man has lots of friends in New York. Cap has offered to pitch in and help any way he can.
|Captain America:||Let me know what I can do to help.|
|Spider-Man:||You can keep these Test Subjects away from me while I look for Carnage. How's that sound?|
|Captain America:||You got it. But if I find Carnage, maybe I can solve your problem for you.|
|Captain America:||How's it coming?|
|Spider-Man:||Swimmingly. Symbiotes everywhere and the one thing they have in common is they don't like little old me.|
Let's shadow Anti-Venom to make sure he doesn't go completely off the deep end.
Like Captain America, Iron Fist wants to pitch in. We've got just the job for him.
|Maria Hill:||Danny, if you want to help Spider-Man, maybe you ought to zip over to Brooklyn real quick and check on his family.|
|Iron Fist:||Yeah, he'll be more focused if he knows they're okay.
But at some point I want in on the symbiote hunt.
|Iron Fist:||All of Spidey's loved ones are hunkered down and doing just fine.
So where are the symbiotes?
|Maria Hill:||We'll keep you posted. Stay ready.|
Carnage and his pals are using the time-tested method of causing civil unrest and then ambushing first responders. Send a hero to escort response teams and keep them safe.
Black Cat is feeling like she ought to give Spider-Man a hand. Let's see how she can help.
|Black Cat:||Anyone need a little bad luck?|
|Tony Stark:||Well... Carnage?|
|Black Cat:||I don't know if I can find him, but I'll give it a try.|
|Black Cat:||I didn't see Carnage, but you know what I did find?|
|Tony Stark:||Do tell.|
|Black Cat:||A slick little underground lab the Green Goblin put together. You might want to go set it on fire or something.|
|Tony Stark:||I believe we will, thank you very much.|
MiniBoss - Anti-Venom
|Spider-Man:||You sure you want me to do this?|
|Maria Hill:||He'll probably listen to you. You're not a symbiote, so that's in your favor. Plus you have a special status with all of them.|
|Spider-Man:||Don't remind me. Man, I wish I'd used the other machine to fix my costume. Thor doesn't have symbiote bonding issues.|
|Spider-Man:||Hey, so, I think it's great you're trying to help out with Venom, but--|
|I WILL LAY HANDS UPON YOU! I WILL BLEED YOUR POWERS AND SAVE YOUR SOUL!||Anti-Venom:|
|Spider-Man:||Yikes! Lighten up, Francis.|
|NOW YOU SHALL BE SAVED!||Anti-Venom:|
|Spider-Man:||I was kind of hoping to avoid being saved today.|
|Anti-Venom:||I GO FORTH TO PURIFY THE SYMBIOTE INFESTATION!|
|Spider-Man:||Oh, man. I think I have a couple of cracked ribs.|
|Agent Coulson:||Should we bring you in?|
|Spider-Man:||Nope. No way, nohow. I'll hang in there. So do you think Eddie's on our side now?|
|Agent Coulson:||We'll find out.|
MiniBoss - Venom
|Agent Coulson:||Would you look at that.|
|Tony Stark:||Eddie has tracked down Venom. This ought to be good.
Agent, get in there and help our crazy evangelist symbiote maybe-ally, would you?
|Another offshoot. They always come looking for Daddy.||Venom:|
|Anti-Venom:||You! You're the one who started this, and with your end it all ends!|
|I am the first. The original. The most powerful! There is no antidote to this Venom!||Venom:|
|Anti-Venom:||You can run, but you can't hide. I will hunt you all until the symbiote menace is cleansed from this world.|
|Anti-Venom:||He has escaped, with his infestation intact.|
|Spider-Man:||Do you mind a little advice? It'd be great if you could go after Carnage first, since he's the one killing everyone in sight.|
|Spider-Man:||Oh goody. Then maybe Hybrid? Or we can play that by ear.|
Boss - Carnage
|Maria Hill:||Carnage is out in the open. Hit him. Spider-Man, Flash--oh. There's Anti-Venom.|
|Spider-Man:||Ooh, this'll be a great show.|
|Nick Fury:||You're going to watch it from right up close. We need you and Flash on the scene in case Anti-Venom gets out of hand.|
|Spider-Man:||Swinging into action, sir yes sir.|
|Yeah yeah yeah! I'm gonna need to sprout extra digits to keep up with today's body count!||Carnage:|
|Anti-Venom:||Hold still while I tear that symbiote out of you and it might be less painful.|
|A do-gooder! Random slaughter is a blast, but there's no fun quite like killing do-gooders. Bring it on.||Carnage:|
|You forgot something, pal. You might be Anti-Venom, but there's no such thing as Anti-Carnage!||Carnage:|
|Anti-Venom:||I've got a purpose. All you've got is bloodlust. You can't win.|
|Anti-Venom:||I'll chase after that abomination. Someone see to all the wounded.|
|Maria Hill:||Agent, let Anti-Venom pursue Carnage. He can't do as much damage if he's on the run.
We're coordinating with disaster-response teams to do triage and get people to hospitals.
|Tony Stark:||Clear Test Subjects as you find them. We're almost done testing an antidote to the Goblin's Iso-8 compound.|
|Maria Hill:||All three enemy symbiotes are still at large. On the other hand, now Anti-Venom is on our side.|
|Spider-Man:||Are we sure that's a good thing?|
|Tony Stark:||If he keeps going after Venom and Carnage, I'm all for it.|
|Spider-Man:||Once he runs out of symbiote targets, though...|
|Maria Hill:||Don't worry, Spider-Man. We'll figure out a way to control him by then.
Also, let's not forget that the Green Goblin may be responsible for creating Hybrid and all these Test Subjects. Keep an eye out for him.
|Spider-Man:||Oh, if I know Gobbie, he won't be able to stay in the shadows forever. He loves the spotlight too much.|
"Symbiotes and modified Test Subjects together are more than a coincidence. Time to end this science project."
— Mission Preview
|Maria Hill:||Green Goblin just made a brief appearance near Columbus Circle.|
|Tony Stark:||And, not coincidentally, a new horde of Test Subjects just appeared in the same area.
He's probably keeping an eye on his symbiote lab project. Be ready when he makes another appearance, Agent.
|Tony Stark:||First order of business: symbiotes.|
We know the Green Goblin is involved somehow. And we know how he loves grandiose gestures. Let's increase our aerial surveillance to make sure we see him coming.
Flash Thompson has that symbiote sensitivity. We need him out in the field to give us advance warning of Hybrid appearing again.
|Tony Stark:||Flash, we want to keep you in circulation all around the area here. Hybrid's going to make a stand sooner or later and we're counting on you to be our early warning system.|
|Agent Venom:||If I see Hybrid, I'm going after him.|
|Tony Stark:||Wouldn't dream of stopping you.|
|Agent Venom:||Nothing yet. Keep going or do you have a new plan?|
|Tony Stark:||I have plenty of plans. But the best way for you to find Hybrid is to keep looking for him, wouldn't you agree?|
A lone Test Subject has found its way into a secure area of Madison Square Garden. This is a disaster waiting to happen. Gamora's well suited to stop it from happening.
|Gamora:||With an introduction like that, I guess I can't refuse.|
|Tony Stark:||Outstanding. Did I mention this Test Subject might be in possession of some symbiote bits?|
|Gamora:||I don't see any symbiote bits.|
|Tony Stark:||Oh. Well, that's one time I'm happy to be wrong.|
Breakaway groups of Test Subjects are trying to get loose in Central Park. Good thing we have Ms. Marvel's Kree-enhanced speed (and her fighter pilot's accuracy) to track them down.
|Tony Stark:||Hi, Carol. Listen, I know we've got cosmic threats to worry about, but if you could keep this bunch of Test Subjects out of Central Park, that would be great.|
|Ms. Marvel:||Oh, I can.|
|Tony Stark:||Traffic on 59th Street has already taken care of a few of them, but there always seem to be more.|
|Ms. Marvel:||That's the last of them.|
|Tony Stark:||Thanks. Are you sure?|
|Ms. Marvel:||I'll hang around for a minute and make sure. I can't count on New York drivers to do my job for me.|
Let's not get carried away chasing after the bosses of this operation. Stay after the Test Subjects. They're still trying to get into Central Park.
MiniBoss - Scream
|Nick Fury:||You heard the Cat, Agent.|
|Black Cat:||Stay away from the kiddies, ugly.|
|You want to sacrifice yourself for these meatlings? I love it. If you are lucky, I'll let you stick around for playtime.||Scream:|
|Black Cat:||If you're lucky, I'll let you survive until S.H.I.E.L.D. gets here. But your odds don't look good.|
|Oh yes, I've heard about you. I'm already bad luck to be around. Imagine what I could do with you as my meat puppet.||Scream:|
|What will we look like when we bond with you, hmmmm?||Scream:|
|Black Cat:||Your luck's about to run out, Scream.|
|Black Cat:||She's down. I can't stay to watch her, though. The Test Subjects are spreading out.|
|Maria Hill:||Go after them. We'll scoop up Scream.|
MiniBoss - Carnage
|Agent Coulson:||Spider-Man, you're on. Carnage is in your immediate vicinity.|
|Spider-Man:||Gotcha. Is Eddie going to be there? Or maybe even Venom? He doesn't like his kid too much.|
|Agent Coulson:||No sign of them.|
|Spider-Man:||No problem. I work better alone.|
|It's amp-up-the slaughter time!||Carnage:|
|Spider-Man:||I think I liked you better before you had daddy issues.
Wait, before we tangle in mortal combat: What did ol' Gobbie promise you?
|Slaughter. Manhattan as a killing floor... and you don't even want to know about Brooklyn.||Carnage:|
|Spider-Man:||No. He promised you "carnage".|
|Very clever. Let the carnage continue!||Carnage:|
|Let's see... extruded spike through the head, or slow tendril strangulation? I can't decide!||Carnage:|
|Spider-Man:||You're still not as tough as your daddy.|
|Spider-Man:||Whew. Close one. Where's Venom when you need him?
Never thought I'd say that.
|Maria Hill:||He's still tangling with Anti-Venom, we think.|
|Spider-Man:||I better head over that way and find out... um, which way?|
|Maria Hill:||Spider-Man, your ribs are a mess. How about you bring yourself in for a quick tune-up?|
MiniBoss - Venom
|Maria Hill:||We've spotted Venom. Sandman, he's right around the corner from you.|
|Sandman:||Aw, man, this whole time I've been trying to steer clear of the symbiotes.|
|Nick Fury:||Tough. Here's where you prove yourself.|
|Sandman:||I told the Goblin he shouldn't do that Hybrid thing.|
|Is that supposed to make me spare you?||Venom:|
|Keep telling yourself it's working... while I pull your guts out.||Venom:|
|You're all gritty between my teeth. Pfagh.||Venom:|
|Sandman:||Let's do it again, Mac.|
|Sandman:||Hey, I did it. Turns out symbiotes don't like to eat sand.|
|Agent Coulson:||Imagine that.|
|Sandman:||Next time someone tells me I don't have what it takes, I'm gonna say, "Oh yeah? When's the last time you took on Venom and walked away?"|
|Tony Stark:||Sounds like a great pickup line, Flint. Give it a try.|
|Sandman:||See if I don't.|
Boss - Hybrid
|Maria Hill:||Anti-Venom has engaged Hybrid. Now's our chance. All teams, hit Hybrid with everything you got.|
|Anti-Venom:||Venom, Scream, Carnage... and finally Hybrid. You're the last name on my list.|
|Anti-Venom:||The Goblin's poison means nothing to us. You'll see why once I've purged you of EVERYTHING.|
|We are too many, and too strong. We will spread...||Hybrid:|
|Anti-Venom:||I am the weapon created to destroy you and all your kind. Might as well lie down, 'cause you're already dead.|
|Anti-Venom:||The Hybrid symbiote is purged!|
|Spider-Man:||Yeah, but where did it go?|
|Tony Stark:||I've got a containment cell ready. Bring it here, I'll lock it up.|
|Maria Hill:||First we have to find it. Agent?|
|Spider-Man:||Here it is! Doesn't look healthy... do symbiotes ever look healthy?|
|Tony Stark:||Don't touch it. We're on our way.|
Epic Boss - Green Goblin
|Maria Hill:||We got him. There he is. Agent, the Green Goblin is out in the open.
Spider-Man is heading to engage him, but he's going to need some backup. The Goblin's not alone.
|Tony Stark:||Keep the Test Subjects off his back while he and the Goblin renew their acquaintance.|
|Spider-Man:||Gobbie, you've gotten yourself tied up in some loony schemes before, but breeding a symbiote? Even for you, that's wack.
Is it still cool if I say wack?
|Spider-Man:||Nope. Sorry. No next. We're pulling the plug. Night night.|
|With Spider-Man out of the way, it's back to raising my new army of hybrids... S.H.I.E.L.D.'s days are numbered.||Green Goblin:|
|Spider-Man:||Yoo hoo, Mr. Goblin! I think we've still got a few things to sort out?|
|Spider-Man:||Can we put him in the Negative Zone or something this time? Svartalfheim, maybe?|
|Tony Stark:||I've got a spot just for him in the Vault.|
|Spider-Man:||Well, if he has to stay in this dimension, I guess that'll do.|
|Agent Coulson:||We've found the research facility where he was creating the Goblin Iso-8 serum. As soon as we get the remaining Test Subjects treated, we'll start our own analysis.|
|Tony Stark:||Might get a little innovation or two out of this enterprise... which would come in handy next time symbiotes come along.|
|Nick Fury:||I'd rather just get rid of all of them. Permanently.|
|Agent Coulson:||Easier said than done, boss. But we'll see what we can do.|
|Tony Stark:||Boy, nobody would have predicted that. We cleaned out a cityful of symbiotes...|
|Maria Hill:||And learned that the Green Goblin was raising an army of symbiote/Test Subject hybrids...|
|Agent Coulson:||All while trying to rein in Eddie Brock before he wipes out every super-powered being in the Five Boroughs.|
|Spider-Man:||That's a pretty good day's work.|
|Spider-Man:||Yeah. So what's next?|
