One of three villains in 2007’s Spider-Man 3, Flint Marko (Thomas Haden Church) turned to a life of crime to pay for his sick daughter’s medical treatment. My favorite part about this one is actually how well it shows off Spider-Man’s suit: you can see tech lines running through the legs. Once it’s available from Level 28 and up, you can unlock it properly with 2 Base Tokens, 4 Crime Tokens and 4 Research Tokens. Once the suit is made available at character Level 39, you can buy it for 4 Base Tokens, 4 Challenge Tokens and 4 Crime Tokens. This QMx Q-Fig Diorama captures Storm’s powers from every angle with hand-painted details and an X-Men display base. Falling into an experimental particle accelerator while escaping prison, he gains sand-based shapeshifting powers and returns to robbin’ as Sandman. After being overpowered by our hero, Norman pretends to beg for Peter’s help in overcoming the Goblin personality while sneakily preparing to skewer him with his glider. Overcoming the tentacles’ influence, he sacrifices himself by forcing the experiment to sink into the river, saving the city.
After a fusion power project goes wrong in 2004’s Spider-Man 2, nuclear scientist Otto Octavius (Alfred Molina) ends up with a set of artificially intelligent robotic tentacles fused to his spine and earns the tabloid moniker “Doctor Octopus.” Not only does the tentacles’ stupidly delicate inhibitor chip get smashed, but Doc Ock’s wife also dies in the fusion accident. In 2002’s Spider-Man, the first film in the trilogy with Tobey Maguire in the lead role, stressed-out scientist Norman Osborn (Willem Dafoe) tests an experimental performance-enhancing chemical on himself. A box isn’t exactly Spider-Man, so they kept at it. This time the symbiote just influences subtly Spider-Man, making him slightly more aggressive but stronger and fully controls the symbiote. Remember, the real goal is making magic. Projects from Disney Imagineering will likely find their way into the many other Disney parks expansions currently in development, from the Star Wars Galactic Starcruiser hotel that is close to opening at Walt Disney World, to a Moana-themed area currently under construction at Epcot.
Despite forming an emotional bond with Peter, Doc Ock kidnaps Mary Jane (again) and tells him to find Spider-Man. Despite Peter Parker’s deficient ability to identify threats before they happen throughout most of Spider-Man: Far From Home, his iconic spidey-sense is subtly introduced in Captain America: Civil War when he makes his heroic entrance and detects Ant-Man instants before he grows and kicks him in the chin. The villains’ fates in their previous battles with Peter Parker’s heroic alter-ego might inform their actions in No Way Home, so let’s look at where all of the previous Spidey movies’ rogues ended up. Colin has had a long passion and obsession with movies going back to the first time he saw The Lion King in theaters. A suit so good that Parker once suggested Stark would lose control of his bladder if he saw it, the 4th Spider-Armor iteration is a powerful one, and it’s the armor that looks most like the traditional suit. The Dark Suit is associated with Black Cat, and so a skin-tight, black number seems rather appropriate. In the Ultimate universe, the costume is often drawn to appear purple, rather than black.
Sony has a lot to figure out with its Spider-Man Universe, though considering how fantastically good of a time No Way Home has had at the box office, studio executives are probably dying to secure that new Holland trilogy as soon as possible before rehiring any former web-slinging heroes. Continued iterations led to a stick man, then a pneumatic figure and an electric version. The first figure in the line is set to be Master Chief in his MJOLNIR Mark V armor. The event was so mourned by its fans that a memorial alter was set up near the convention center, with people leaving flowers, memorabilia and messages including: ‘I Love You. He says his favorite part is the people he works with. His all-time favorite movie critics are Pauline Kael, Manny Farber and of course himself. During his extremely supervillain (and Manhattan-threatening) attempt to re-create the sun at a waterfront lab, Doc Ock learns that Peter and Spidey are in fact the same guy (wowsers) and is persuaded to act for the greater good. Peter learns that Marko was the guy who killed his beloved Uncle Ben (a controversial change to Spidey’s comic book origin).
