Synopsis for "A Child is Born Part 2: Cops and Monsters"
Black Cat is delivering the painting she stole back to the creator when she notices Carnage throwing Officer Mulligan off a building. She reluctantly intervenes, saving his life.
Carnage catches up to them, and is about to kill them both when Venom finds them, and while they fight, Black Cat and Mulligan escape. The two fight it out and Carnage is seemingly killed when he is run over by a subway train.
Mulligan makes it to the hospital to meet his newly born son, Edward. Venom waits outside the hospital in an attempt to protect the newborn symbiote. Carnage has survived and is burrowing his way under the hospital, biding his time until he can strike at his offspring again. Spider-Man also patrols the area to ensure Pat's safety.
Several days later, Pat is back on the job, noticing his reflexes and strength being better than ever. His partner notices too, and remarks about it as they make their way to their next call.
There they review security tape of the woman who stole the painting the night before, and Pat recognizes her body immediately. He tracks down the artist of the painting and figures out how to get Black Cat to show up there. Just as he is about to read her her rights, she recognizes him as the guy she saved a few nights before.
Turns out, all he wanted from her was help figuring out what is happening to him.
In smashes Cletus, ready to kill them all when the Toxin symbiote finally appears, ready to fight.
What’s worse than one homicidal symbiote? Two. Worse that that? THREE.
- That’s’ right. Carnage just had a BABY! Guest-starring Black Cat!
