If you like goo-monsters from the 1990s, you'll enjoy Cletus Kasady's cross-country rampage.

Carnage USA #1

Somehow, Carnage, spawn of Venom, survived being torn asunder in outer space by the Sentry.  While some may bemoan that decision, the more we can extricate the effects of the Sentry from the Marvel Universe, the better.  To some, Carnage was a sign of the 1990s going too far, but Zeb Wells has brought him back, determined to prove that there are no bad characters, there's only bad handling of characters.

Hence, Carnage USA – starring the slobbery red symbiote wrapped around the homicidal maniac Cletus Kasady once more.  Here, it seems the killer has forgone screwing around in New York, the superhero capital of the world, and is instead terrorizing the American heartland, forcing Spider-Man and the Avengers to head out after him.
