Greetings faithful Vs. System 2PCG fans! Welcome to our second look at the Maximum Carnage Issue for the Symbiotes Arc for the game. The first 55-card Issue in the Arc, Lethal Protectors, focused on Venom and some other symbiotes. It introduced a new Evil team, the Symbiotes (). The second Issue, which we will look at some more today, takes a look at Carnage and “friends” (more Symbiotes). The final Issue involves some Spider-Friends who are involved with symbiotes.
Before we look at the cards, a quick reminder about symbiotes, hosts, and AKA. From the rules:
AKA is used quite a bit in the Arc, as the Symbiotes change hosts often. And it can be confusing with symbiotes in particular, as they are sentient beings as well. For example, the character Venom could have the AKA of every other hero and villain who ever used the same symbiote, like Agent Venom. Then Agent Venom would need AKA Venom as well. But we’ve already made Venoms and Agent Venoms without these AKAs. Our solution was to focus on the hosts, so any character with Eddie Brock as its host has AKA Venom.
Last time we saw Carnage himself as well as his symbiote. Today we’re gonna look at some other characters related to that symbiote.
She’s very maternal, don’t you think? I mean, she’s empathetic and everything!
Here’s her supporting character version:
And now for her “kids”…
That’s enough of this horrific “family”. Let’s take a look at a less poisonous character!
Wait, that’s not right! Aren’t there any less violent folks around? Oh, it is Maximum Carnage, right.
Well, we might as well show you one more version of this awful being…
He’s not that bad! Just a 1/1!
Oh no, he has a lot of keywords…
Thanks for joining us today for another look at some symbiotes. Come back next time as we look at the even more!
Carnage will reign when Vs. System 2PCG: Maximum Carnage unleashes in stores November 17th.
