Picking up where Venom left off, Venom: Let There Be Carnage faces the wide-eyed symbiote with Carnage’s greatest enemy. First, though, Venom will have to deal with his host body and place in the world.
Venom: Let There Be Carnage spends most of its time on the dynamic between Eddie Brock and Venom. However, there is still a wide array of returning and new characters who can each be assigned one of the 12 signs on the astrological chart.
12 Aries – Cletus Kasady
The Aries get angry so regularly that they forget why they became mad in the first place. Rams get bored without constant stimuli and will do just about anything if egged on. Cletus Kasady seldom stops getting angry.
Kasady says he’s had a hard life (i.e., abuse from his grandmother and mother), but he doesn’t know how to use his anger for positive means. The red-haired serial killer can come across as superficial, like a constantly grinning child. His preferred stimulus is (fittingly) Carnage, which he embraces frequently. Going to that prison cell was one of the worst decisions Eddie Brock has made. Had he stayed away from Kasady, the killer would never have been exposed to the symbiote, which allows him to experience violence on a whole new level.
11 Taurus – Anne Weying
A Taurus is going to be happy with the status quo. They think logically and frequently find themselves rigidly adhering to a schedule. Because of this, the Bull is typically viewed as hard-headed. Anne Weying (Michelle Williams) is probably the only non-symbiote stubborn enough to put up with Eddie Brock.
On top of being the most likable character in Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Weying is a strictly logical thinker. Emotion hardly takes over with her, and she can embrace potentially catastrophic situations with a clear head. This agency was seen in Venom and again in Venom: Let There Be Carnage (although with less screentime).
10 Gemini – Venom
A twin can capture an entire room’s attention with their voice. They have the mind of a Renaissance man, engaging in many topics. Lastly, a Gemini can flip any awkward conversation with a joke. All of these traits indicate someone great at a party. And, as seen in Venom: Let There Be Carnage, Venom is excellent at a party.
A Renaissance man is someone who can tackle just about any task with a comparable level of efficiency. Venom has a child’s curious mind and tends to give his best shot no matter the scenario. Poison also tends to drop a joke in the middle of an argument, which deflates the tension between him and host: Eddie Brock. This occasionally results in some of Venom’s most badass quotes.
8 Leo – Carnage
When interacting with the Lion, a big personality should be expected. Leos are the creative type with both the desire and the ability to make an impression. Carnage makes an impression no matter which room he’s in, even if the other occupants don’t tend to leave it alive.
Carnage employs creative solutions in his terror (i.e., letting the other prisoners out during his/Kasady’s jailbreak). Mostly, though, Carnage wants dominance. He wants to kill Venom (essentially his father) and bring harm to the world with impunity.
7 Virgo – Detective Mulligan
As long as there is an activity in progress, the Virgo will be fine. If they don’t feel like their talents are being utilized, though, they’ll shut down. Overall, Virgo is a good-hearted fixer with a judgmental tone. Detective Mulligan is a fixer and is constantly on the move (while also using his talents on the job).
