* Two books published by Marvel about the villain Carnage, ''Mind Bomb'' (which is by WarrenEllis by the way) and ''It's A Wonderful Life''. The character of Carnage is already up there to begin with, having been in prison serving eleven consecutive life sentences for murder before obtaining the symbiote, and after obtaining it, his only goal was to kill as many people as possible. The entire plot of ''ComicBook/MaximumCarnage'' was that Carnage wanted to kill everyone in Manhattan. He's a killer with no style or gimmick, who only wants to kill, preferably by brutal, gory means. But these books... both involve Carnage using the symbiote to connect to the minds of other people, which allows us to see what's in Carnage's mind. He lives in a world of corpses, willing victims, dark humor, and frightening landscapes all of which house his knowledge, desires and memories of the past. There is even a special area where Carnage spends time hacking up Spider-Man copies for fun. One panel of ''Mind Bomb'' shows the "real world" as he calls it, which features a man eating intestines and holding a cup labeled "urine sample" as a drink glass, an elderly woman in bondage gear, and a cop with a KKK hood shooting a man. In ''Mind Bomb'', the man he's connected to, Dr. Matthew Kurtz, goes completely insane from this experience. The second book plays more to Cletus Kasady's history as Dr. Kafka and John Jameson are connected this time, each mutating into a vicious creature (John turned back into the Man-Wolf, a previous villain form, and Dr. Kafka slowly changed into a cockroach) finally ending when a young black kid named Billy shows up deep within the area of repressed memories. Carnage threatens to kill him if they get too close but seems unable to (it's hinted that Billy was a childhood friend, but the details beyond this are never really said) and finally has a breakdown, releasing the two but left in a catatonic state. The artwork is graphic even for a Carnage story and the cover of ''Mind Bomb'' has him perched on a pile of human skulls. The oddest part? Both books were approved by the CCA. Even worse, ''IAWL'' seems to play with the idea that the people running the mental hospitals that house supervillains may actually be more evil than Carnage. ''Mind Bomb'' showed him as oddly intelligent for a supposedly uneducated guy but ''IAWL'' opens with Carnage ranting about the change in management. He even seems to be more than aware that many "accidents" that are resulting in patient deaths during their transfers are intentional and even calls out that the car crash that killed Wolverina (not Wolverine) was on purpose. This alone might be the most frightening aspect, Carnage himself calling out someone else for being worse than him and being right.

** Carrion's origin is even worse; he was originally a backup clone Miles Warren created of himself, in case his vendetta against Spiderman failed. It did, but Warren never returned to release the clone since he died in the fight, and the clone was left to grow old and ''die'' in the clone tube, but the machinery kept up its support of the corpse, preventing it from completely dying and decomposing, creating a TechnicallyAliveZombie. Years later, a university professor stumbled upon the machine and released Carrion, who had understandably been driven completely insane by the experience, even if he wasnt awake in stasis.
* The infamous "Kravens Last Hunt" storyarc, where Kraven, driven insane by his repeated losses against Spiderman, becomes obsessed with defeating his enemy by "becoming him". He does this by putting Spiderman in a death-like coma and ''burying him alive'', then assuming Spidermans identity and embarking on a vigilante spree. Spiderman is trapped in his grave for TWO WEEKS, during his which he has horrible nightmares and has to undergo a vision quest just to regain enough control of his own body to claw his way out of the grave. The story ends with Kraven declaring victory and shooting himself in the head.

* Carrion, one of the creations of Miles Warren AKA The Jackal, is a ghoulish, gaunt figure with a TouchOfDeath and a penchant for throwing poison dust at people. But thats not the truly horrible part, it's the fact that there isnt just one Carrion, he is a VIRUS and can "infect" anyone with his own DNA and personality, creating a new Carrion and essentially erasing the original person.

* The ''Vermin'' storyarc in Spectacular Spiderman. Vermin was originally a scientist who had been sexually abused by his father as a child. As an adult, a failed experiment turned him into a hideous rat-like mutant, which also made him psychotic and turned him into a cannibalistic serial killer. The storyline has a ton of creepy scenes, such as showing Vermins mental breakdown in the mental hospital while his doctor is trying to reach his original personality, and the crime scene photos of his victims. There's also one disturbing scene where Peter Parker is visiting the cemetary with Mary Jane and Aunt May and has a bizarre vision of Vermin bursting up from Uncle Ben's grave (Vermin is nowhere near the place at the time).
** By far the creepiest scene is where Vermin returns to his parents house, and manages to sneak into his fathers room, and ''lies down next to him in bed!'' The look of horror on the mans face says it all.
--> '''Vermin''': ''I'm home, daddy...''
** On top of that, Peter is in the middle of a breakdown, and is sent right over the edge when Harry exposes him to a hallucinogenic gas, forcing him to deal with his massive death phobia, and showing him visions of his dead parents as rotting corpses.
--> '''Peter''': '''mommy daddy mommy daddy mommy daddy mommy daddy'''
** In the middle of all that, Harry Osborn is having one last relapse into mental illness as he begins to see visions of his dead father driving him to resume being the Green Goblin. He even starts to become abusive towards his family just as Norman had been.

* Like the ''Noir'' version of the Vulture, the one from Franchise/{{Marvel 2099}} is also a man-eater, complete with CannibalLarder.

* The Grim Hunt storyline. The Kravenoffs manage to murder Peter's clone brother Kaine, leave his body on display in a graveyard with a note "Hunt Me!" Their plan proceeds to [[GoneHorriblyRight go horribly right]] as Peter, in a fit of pure rage, dons his black (non-Venom) suit, and proceeds to hunt and torture Kraven's family, ripping apart Sasha's face with his wall-cralling power and going at Kraven with one of his spears fully intending to kill him in retaliation. The whole time, echoing menacing threats of his intentions to each of them.

* Hydro-Man was once hired to free a Russian mobster who was being extradited; part of his plan to do so involved sneaking into the airplane that was transporting the man and forcing his way into the pilots' bodies, killing them and allowing him to crudely puppeteer their corpses. It was surprisingly macabre, especially for a villain who is usually depicted as a borderline joke and no more than DumbMuscle.
--> '''Everett K. Ross:''' I read somewhere that the human body is 98% water. And, at least in the case of Zurich Flight 1635's pilots--2% Hydro-Man.
