Description

Unopened limited edition box set for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) and Sega Genesis video game Spider-Man and Venom: Maximum Carnage, one of 5000 unnumbered copies that were sold exclusively through the QVC television shopping network in 1994. The red-and-black Symbiote-style box, 15.25″ x 12.5″ x 1.5″, features the game title in gold lettering to cover, which bears Marvel Comics and Acclaim logos to the upper corners. Although sealed in its original cellophane wrapper, it is known that the box contains either the SNES or Sega Genesis version of the game, three pins, a hardcover Spider-Man: Carnage book, and a COA from Marvel attesting to the limited edition run. In very good to fine, never-opened condition, with some bending and creasing to the left side of the box, which also bears a small surface tear.

Maximum Carnage is one of the first video games to be directly based on a comic book story—rather than simply using comics characters in a standard video game 'action/adventure' plot—and many of the game's cutscenes feature semi-animated versions of art taken directly from the comics. Most exciting for fans was the array of heroes found in the game, which included, of course, Spider-Man and Venom, as well as several of their allies from the Marvel Comics universe, such as Captain America, Black Cat, Iron Fist, Cloak and Dagger, Deathlok, Morbius and Firestar. A sought-after, still-sealed copy of one of the most popular video game crossovers in console history.
