Weekly Marvel Review: November 20, 2019 (Week 47)

Venom put a stop to Carnage’s current rampage through the Marvel universe, but not before he was forced to unleash Knull from his slumber. When Carnage presented Eddie Brock with a choice between saving his son from the sadistic symbiote or preventing the return of the Black King, Brock did not hesitate to sacrifice the world for his kid. Absolute Carnage, the Event Book of the Week, may have ended with a 55-point review score, but the bigger threat remains. Another sinister symbiotic scenario, this time between man and machine, threatened to take over the world in Tony Stark: Iron Man. Tony freed himself from his bond and revealed his plan to face Ultron in a classic suit sans AI in the 36 point Top Solo Book of the Week. Blade and his Strikeforce earned Top Team Book of the Week with a review score of 40 points.
