It was later discovered that she was carrying Carnage's child, which was growing on her prosthetic arm. Horrified by its hunger, she cut off her arm and Shriek claimed it for her own.With the new symbiote bonded to her arm, Shriek dragged her out into the streets where Carnage was fighting Spider-Man and Iron Man. She scared the symbiote so it abandoned her to return to Tanis. She accepted the bond and became Scorn. Pulling her by the hair, Scorn forced Shriek to use her sonic scream on Carnage. This put her into a coma and gave Spider-Man and Iron Man the chance they needed to defeat Carnage. However, he was still able to escape.
