Drawn by Peter's hatred, it bonded with him somehow, and drove him completely insane!
~ Scarlet Spider explaining how the Carnage symbiote bonded with Spider-Man, thus creating Spider-Carnage.
Spider-Carnage was born when a Carnage symbiote was accidentally transported to an alternate reality by a device created by Kingpin in the universe. It was summoned when Ben Reilly, a.k.a. Scarlet Spider, was trying to stop Kinpin in his plans but was interrupted by his clone, Peter Parker. The Parker clone had held a grudge against Reilly due to the revelation that he had been a clone of him created by Dr. Miles Warren.
Once the symbiote arrived, it bonded with the Parker clone due to his grudge and hatred for humanity, driving the man insane and thus Spider-Carnage was born. Upon his birth, Spider-Carnage had teamed up with Kingpin, as well as Alistor Smythe, the Hobgoblin and Green Goblin-ordering the two goblins to massacre all of New York City. He puts his partners under the delusion that he wants them to steal some equipment from J. Jonah Jameson to build a machine he can use to control people’s minds with, when he’s actually intending to use it to destroy all of the multiverse.
The Goblins’ plans in stealing the equipment are somewhat interrupted by Spider-Man from the Prime Universe, who was brought there by the Beyonder, thus he tries to kill him. However prime Spider-Man is teleported to Madame Web’s lair by the Beyonder before Spider-Carnage can do anymore damage.
Madame Web had foreseen Spider-Carnage’s plans as well as the results should this plan become successful, therefore she recruited Peter Parker from the Prime Universe, as well as four other Spidermen in aiding Scarlet Spider to stop him.
Once they track down Spider-Carnage to Kingpin’s lair, all the other Spider-Men engage in a fight in which Spider-Carnage’s true plans are revealed to Kingpin. Enraged, Kingpin attacks Spider-Carnage but the symbiote overpowers him. Spider-Carnage’s plans in destroying the multiverse are thwarted by the following Spider-Men, however he manages to open a portal to the Armored Spider-Man’s universe before the building explodes. The Spider-Men and Kingpin are transported to Madame Web’s lair, and prime Spider-Man is taken to Armored Spiderman’s universe. Upon arriving there he finds out that Armored Spider-Man is a billionaire scientist whose identity as Spider-Man is known to everyone.
After Spider-Carnage’s attempt at killing prime Spiderman with Armored Spider-Man’s giant Spider-Robot fails, it is revealed that he manipulated Kingpin (who is Armored Spider-Man’s lawyer) into kidnapping prime Spider-Man so he may make pretend to be Armored Spider-Man in order to avoid suspicion. However, prime is rescued by Armored Spider-Man’s fiancé, Gwen Stacy, and he escapes to reveal Spider-Carnage’s true identity.
Spider-Carnage kidnaps Gwen Stacy, threatening to kill her should anyone follow him to where he intends to finish the machine to go through with his plans in destroying all of reality. Prime Spider-Man comes up with the idea of bringing Armored Spider-Man’s uncle Ben to the rooftop where Gwen is being kept. Once there, Ben is able to reach out to the Peter Parker being controlled by the evil symbiote. Parker repents and tries to break free of the symbiote, but the alien won’t go down without a fight, causing Peter severe pain in the process. Parker is forced to use the device to open an unbalanced portal, so he may jump into and sacrifice himself, along with the Carnage symbiote. The plan is a success and the portal is vaporized, killing both of them.

Scarlet Spider & Spider Carnage Origin Story - Spider-Man- The Animated Series (HD)
The Spider-Carnage symbiote is the overarching antagonist of Spider-Man: The Animated Series, since while Kingpin and the Green Goblin were the show's two main antagonists, it was more dangerous than either of them ever could be, as it came dangerously close to destroying all of reality itself. It was also the final foe that Madame Web was setting Peter Parker up against, since it threatened the whole multiverse.
While some may argue that it's host was the main villain, it was the symbiote itself that was responsible for Scarlet Spider's clone going mad in the first place, as it is well established in the series that it's bonding with him is what drove him insane to begin with, and was making him do terrible things he would not do himself. Therefore, the symbiote is the true villain behind the clone's most horrendous actions.
In the original comics, Spider-Carnage was the alter-ego to the Carnage symbiote when it possessed Spider-Man's clone, Ben Reilly.
It remains unknown as to whether or not the symbiote was Carnage from Season 3, and if it escaped from Dormammu's dimension with the help of Kingpin's device. However, considering Cassidy was going to return in the show as Jack the Ripper had the series not been cancelled, it's unlikely.
