Powers: This Carrion had great strength, telepathy, teleportation, levitation, and the ability to repel organic matter upon contact. Carrion also developed an acid-like power called Red Dust.
Bio: The original Carrion first appeared seeking to destroy Spider-Man, somehow knowing that his secret identity was Peter Parker.
Carrion sought to destroy Parker/Spider-Man several times before revealing that he was a decayed clone of Professor Miles Warren, also known as the Jackal. Warren had created the clone and left it in a capsule to mature to full development; however Warren had then (seemingly) died and the clone was left developing in the capsule with artificially accelerated age. Something went wrong and the clone's body became like a living corpse. As Warren's clone, Carrion blamed Spider-Man for the deaths of both Warren and Gwen Stacy and sought to bring him to justice. Carrion captured Peter Parker and prepared to kill him with a giant amoeba created by cloning cells from Parker. However Parker freed himself and became Spider-Man. In the subsequent fight a fire consumed the laboratory whilst the amoeba latched onto Carrion. Unable to escape both creatures perished in the fire.
