Director Phil Coulson of S.H.I.E.L.D. ordered his team of scientists to create their own version of the Venom symbiote in case they ever needed to defeat it. The scientists took the sample they had and mixed it with a sample of Spider-Man's blood, and Carnage was the result.
This new symbiote, dubbed Red by Coulson, was put under several forms of torture. The scientists attempted to get it to form its own humanoid form, but it needed a host if it were to continue living. They began using electroshock therapy, but that only made it angrier. Eventually, in a late night, it bonded to one of the scientists before it left, keeping itself a secret.
"Red" escaped with this scientist and left him as soon as they reached land. "Red" began searching for a host, but no one it found was suitable. It needed rage, anger, it needed the feeling of hate and revenge. The symbiote searched for days and nights until finally finding its host.
"Red" sensed the hatred within John Jameson, knowing they would be a perfect match. At first, John tried to scare off the symbiote, but it wasn't frightened. It forcibly bonded to John, but it opened his eyes. He dubbed himself Carnage, and he knew the symbiote was the key to a better life than anything he could ever imagine.
