The punisher made a mad dash for the safehouse. It had been a distraction all along. The horsemen wanted the other survivors. Micro had data on all of them.
Eddie was a threat as Venom, and Deadpool.... Well Frank couldn't think of a reason for him.
As soon as he entered the building, Frank was met with two tendrils penetrating his shoulders. They pinned him to a wall.
"Well now, ain't this just a redneck CHRISTMAS PARTY!" said a sinister voice.
Frank's head hung down, but someone lifted up his chin. A red haired man with wild eyes stood before him. "I don't reckon we've properly met!" Said the man.
Castle spit in his face. "Cletus Cassidy. AKA Carnage. I know who you are you sick freak." Cassidy's eye twitched a little as he wiped the spit off his cheek. "Now....
You done something REAL stupid boy!"
Red symbiote goop began to envelop Cletus as he transformed into Carnage. He twisted the two tendrils like knives deeper into Frank's shoulders.
"Now you're gonna tell me where Deadpool is, or you and Micros deaths are gonna be REAL SLOW!"
"Hey A**hole." Came a dark voice. "Why don't you try asking a U.S. Agent?" Carnage whipped around angrily to see a symbiotic pistol pointed at his face. "Boom." Said Agent Venom.
With that he fired bullets made out of his suit into Carnage's eyes. The villain screamed and the tendrils came out of Frank's shoulders.
As Cassidy held his eyes and regenerated, the Punisher grabbed his venom injection and stabbed his own arm.
He fell to the ground writhing in pain as the VenomPool mixed cells moved through his body.
Cassidy recovered his vision and turned his arm into a Gatling gun. "Two can play at this game Cousin Venom!"
Venom dove for cover, dragging Frank along with him. "Snap out of it Castle! You gotta fight this monster.
I can't do it alone!" Suddenly a symbiote axe sliced through their cover, separating Venom and the Punisher.
Carnage sent two spikes directly through Venoms knees. Venom screamed as he fell to the ground immobile. "Once a cripple, always a cripple." He sneered as he approached Eddie.
"I guess the same goes for predictable lunatics too ." Snapped the injured hero.
"I AM NOT PREDICTABLE!" screamed an enraged Cletus. "I am CHAOS. I am DISORDER! I AM CARNAGE!!!" "And you aren't paying attention." Smirked The Punisher as he stood up in his new Venom armor
