Leak Sauce #4 Omnibus Style!




Leaking info to you and bringing the discussion.

It's omnibus time and this bus has to keep moving over 50MPH or the bomb will explode so let's get this party started!

POSSIBLE SPOILERS SO READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!

I'm a bit late on this I must admit but you'll forgive me right? For anyone who hasn't seen Avatar: The Last Airbender (the series) all the way through, then don't continue reading. Do a barrel roll over to the closest place that will allow you to watch this and finish it immediately. The new series takes place 70 years after the original. As the title would suggest, we have a new Avatar named Korra. In the picture, you can see Republic City which is said to be a "Metropolis powered by steam-type technology". It's inhabited by members from every nation but apparently there is rampant crime and an anti-bender movement. Big spoilers just below this.

Korra is a hot-headed and rebellious girl from the Southern Water Tribe. Her Airbending teacher is in fact Aang and Katara's son Tenzin. There is a giant pile of rumors on the web but I'm sticking to just the facts.




Driving into the next big piece of info. Carnage is back! If you haven't been in touch with Spider-Man's comics for awhile, a lot of the old villains have been revamped entirely. The big facts about the new Carnage:

1) Cletus is dead. This is fact. He's been dead for a long time now and Carnage has been dormant for some time. That means there will be a new host. It's a female in fact.

2) We get to find out how much of the villainy was Cletus and how much was Carnage due to the character development with a new host.

3) He's coming back a bit "augmented" so we'll most likely see some new powers.

4) The Venom symbiote was in fact an adult before it met Eddie Brock. As you should know, Eddie died years ago and the Venom symbiote has had a new host for awhile (Mac Gargan). Carnage was merely a child when it bonded with Cletus so it's had a bit of a dysfunctional childhood.

5) The new storyline will also involve Iron-Man.




Our next bit of leaked info is for Scars of Mirrodin. The Sword of Body and Mind is intense! See the picture above to get a nice look at that thing. If you can't see it well enough, here's the rundown of the card:
_______________________________________
Sword of Body and Mind 3

Artifact - Equipment

Equipped creature gets +2/+2 and has
protection from green and from blue.

Whenever equipped creature deals combat
damage to a player, you put a 2/2 green
Wolf creature token onto the battlefield
and that player puts the top ten cards
of his or her library into his or her
graveyard.

Equip 2

____________________________________

This is going to be a serious threat to players attempting to abuse Jace 2.0 in Standard right now. Who am I kidding? It's going to be a serious threat period. This is just as powerful as its sibling cards: Sword of Light and Shadow and Sword of Fire and Ice.




Amaterasu from Ōkami and Thor were revealed to be in Marvel VS Capcom 3.
Other known characters so far are:

Dante (Devil May Cry)
Deadpool
Ryu
Iron Man
Morrigan Aensland
Captain America
Chris Redfield
Doctor Doom
Chun-Li
Wolverine
Trish (Devil May Cry)
Hulk
Felicia
Super-Skrull

Dormammu has also been confirmed for the game but no one is sure if he's a playable character. Most likely he'll be the final boss but we'll have to wait and find out.

Annnnnd that's enough to spoil you for now. Time to jump out of the bus people.

This is Kylak signing out and wondering what characters Carnage and Korra would pick to face off in Marvel VS Capcom 3.

  1. Ahhhhh, I need to finish Avatar still D:. I'm excited about the new series though!
    Sword of Body and Mind sounds epic, bwahaha! It's going to be pretty expensive probably ;3;.

  2. That's the only thing I'm worried about. It most likely will be VERY expensive due to hype and demand. *sigh*

  3. Yeahhh, sadly. Really good stuff.

    Carnage, huh. I still don't know too much about him, but it's cool to hear that it will be a female host next.

    Marvel vs Capcom 3 sounds so epic!

  4. Carnage explained in a single comment post:

    The Carnage symbiote itself is the child of the Venom symbiote. Both symbiotes are alien life forms that bond with their host. They aren't parasitic but instead work in unison with their host to make the host more powerful. That aspect wasn't really explored in the movie since Spidey didn't do anything different with the suit that he didn't already do (much to the fans dismay).

    Cletus Kasady was its first and only host (until now obviously). Cletus was a deranged psychopath and serial killer with a very disturbing past. While the Venom symbiote is unique in that it gained a sense of honor due to Peter Parker being the original host, the Carnage symbiote gained many tendencies from Cletus. While Venom is borderline villain/anti-hero, Carnage is a full blown mass murdering nut job.

    That's part of the reason people don't like the Venom from the movies. Not only was he introduced too late in the third film to have any character development but you don't get to see the other tendencies beyond "evil". Eddie Brock and Venom both have a vendetta against Peter Park (Spider Man) but the two of them aren't evil characters and so they bond well with each other, calling themselves "We". They'll gladly kill Peter any chance they get or do anything to ruin his life because they feel that he ruined their lives but they aren't evil.

    Now we get to see Carnage with a new host, much like Venom has a new host (due to Eddie Brock's death years ago). Venom isn't going to be too happy to see his son return either so that will be interesting. Spider-Man and Venom had to team up to take down Carnage before and who knows what will go down this time. Though we do know that Iron Man will be involved in this storyline.

    And there you have it.

  5. An additional comment... I guess Eddie isn't actually dead due to Anti-Venom being canon. I wasn't sure about that before so I just wanted to state that to clear things up but I'm not going to get into the entire symbiote storyline.

    Though I will say this: If enough people voted on it, I would gladly write an article about the different symbiotes.

  6. I vote aye, do the article on the different symbiotes.

    Ahhh, now I understand. I read on wiki a while ago on Venom, but I think the problem is I kept mixing Carnage and Venom with each other. Don't have that problem now though. Thank you so much for the explanation! It really did help me out.

  7. No problem. Anytime.

    That's one vote for the symbiote article.
