That was what I said before, that the possibility of the carnage symbiote being evil was due to being bonded to Kassidy, and that badness transferred over to Ben.

Spider-Man in the cartoon wasn't evil, he just gradually became more ruthless and aggressive. Till he realised he was losing control and then tried to wrestle the symbiote off. To be honest, the 90's cartoon I thought over all was crap... Spider-Man was a wimp in it. Aunt May could have done a better job as a superhero than he did.

Again the one thing I would strongly define in this discussion is that Symbiotes amplify characteristics of their hosts.

Also if they feed on adrenaline, one of the best ways to get it, is through anger. So while Spider-Man originally didn't become aggressive and mean like he did in the cartoon and in SM3... since the original story there has been a lot of inferrence that symbiotes can potentially have negative effects on their hosts.
