Synopsis for "Demons On Broadway"Edit

Part 3 of "Maximum Carnage" - Eddie Brock arrives at Laguardia Airport. He sees a newspaper concerning a headline involving Carnage. He speaks aloud concerning his intention to kill Carnage, and transforms into Venom. When Airport security clumsily attempts to apprehend him, he flees. While he approaches the city, Venom laments how he feels responsible for Carnage, as his symbiote created him.

Meanwhile, Cloak and Spider-Man are nursing their wounds in the Holy Ghost Church. Cloak is beside himself with grief from losing Dagger to a surprise assault by Shriek. He expresses grief and then rage, swearing to make Shriek pay. Spider-Man then leaves to pursue leads concerning Carnage. Spider-Man, while searching, considers the fact that Carnage has teamed up with the Doppleganger and Shriek and how death and life work in a balance.

Halfway across the city, Carnage confronts Shriek and Doppleganger about their going after Spider-Man without him. Carnage effectively puts Shriek in her place, indicating that Spider-Man is his. "Every bone and sinew, every drop of blood or bile...MINE!" Believing her to be in danger from the murdering symbiote, Doppleganger attacks Carnage. Using a piece of the alien symbiote, Carnage easily knocks Doppleganger away. Carnage then informs Shriek that this "band" has one leader - him.

In psychopathic fashion, Carnage and Shriek make up, they agree to go out and celebrate their "make-up" by slaughtering a few "unsuspectin geeks". In Central Park, Carnage rips the roof off a couple's car, and then viciously murders both. Shriek then erradicates the vehicle and Doppleganger breaks the neck of a police officer who got the drop on Shriek. Spider-Man returns home to an angry wife. Mary Jane is agitated that Spider-man has been unable to prevent physical injury to himself (he has a broken rib).

After a brief rest, Spider-Man resumes his search for Carnage. He comes across a patrolling Demogoblin and though he attempts to stay undetected, Demogoblin spots him in a window's reflection.

A short fight ensues, and Spidey is struck by one of Demogoblin's black pumpkin bombs. The bomb discharges a liquid shadow, which clings to Spider-Man and causes him to feel immense cold and feel senses of hopelessness and loss. Demogoblin flaunts his success while Venom swings through the city looking for Carnage, Venom is aware of the altercation between Spider-Man and Demogoblin, but he recieves information on Carnage's location and opts to pursue him instead.

As Demogoblin prepares to kill Spider-Man, a preacher approached the villian from behind. As Demogoblin turns his murderous intentions on the preacher, Spider-Man forces himself out of his despair and delivers a devastating blow to the villian.

As Spidey checks on the preacher, Demogoblin throws another pumpkin bomb, Spidey successfully dodges the explosion, but his actions inflame his broken rib, luckily Demogoblin flees. Spider-Man feeling immense pain, decides to cut his losses and go home. Venom arrives at Central Park and engages Carnage, Shriek, and Doppleganger.

That evening, while Peter recovers, he and Mary Jane are watching the news coverage of Carnage's mayhem and there's a knock at the door. MJ answers it to find a severly injured Venom, barely conscious.
