As spiderman ps4 is only one day away from a day 1 launch, this article will serve to teach the backstory behind each confirmed villain in the game along with their origins. The video given to us months ago by insomniac allowed us to see a number of familiar villains of the spider-man. Without further ado here’s a look into the bad guys of the game.
1. The Vulture
Adrian Toomes was a former electronics engineer” who was once the business partner of a man named Gregory Bestman. Bestman handled the finances while Toomes, the inventions. One day, after creating a flight harness, Toomes eagerly rushed into Bettman’s office to share the happy news. However, Bestman was not there, and Toomes discovered that Bestman had secretly been embezzling funds. that Toomes had no legal recourse. Enraged, Toomes wrecked the business, discovering that the harness also granted him superhuman strength. He then decided to turn to crime as the Vulture. The Vulture employs a special harness of his own design that allows him, to fly using a pair of wings worn on his arms. The harness also endows him with super-strength, and some say it even lengthens his life-span. Although Toomes is advanced in age, he is a strong fighter and a remorseless killer.
2. The Shocker
Shocker (Herman Schultz) is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Herman Schultz is a career criminal who, after several prison terms for robbery, built a battle suit that sent out shock waves to quickly open safes as well as give him a significant advantage over the police. His criminal career as the self-styled “Shocker” put him in direct conflict with the superhero Spider-Man, belonging to his rogue’s gallery.
3. Mister Negative
The character was first introduced in The Amazing Spider-Man #546 (January 2008) and was created by writer Dan Slott and artist Phil Jimenez. Introduced first as Martin Li, we later learn that Martin Li wasn’t Mr. Negative’s true name, it’s one he stole. He was actually an unnamed human trafficker who was under the employ of the Chinese crime boss Silver Fang. At one point, when a freighter full of undocumented Chinese immigrants nearly collides with a port in New York Harbor, the man who would become Mr. Negative is able to escape, and when he does, he steals the real Martin Li’s identity, as the real Li died in the crash. Mr. Negative has some pretty formidable powers, all of which come from his connections to the Lightforce and Darkforce. He has a degree of superhuman strength—enough to kick Spider-Man around and send him tumbling through walls with concussive force. He has the ability to heal others as Martin Li and can power up inanimate objects to make them stronger with dark energy as Mr. Negative. He can also bring out both extreme good and evil in someone with a single touch. As his name suggests, when in bad guy mode, his appearance resembles that of a photographic negative.
4. The Scorpion
Mac Gargan was a private investigator initially hired by J. Jonah Jameson to find out how Peter Parker is able to obtain incredible pictures of Spider-Man. Gargan’s efforts set off Peter’s spider-sense and the teen was able to easily evade the detective. Jameson then decided to hire Gargan as the subject of a barely tested process that would endow him with the useful characteristics of a particular animal with the help of Dr. Farley Stillwell. In this case, a scorpion was the base for the purposes of creating a powerful agent capable of defeating Spider-Man. The Scorpion proved to be more than a match for the wall-crawler; defeating him twice, but the mutagenic treatment seriously affected Gargan’s mind, driving him insane.
5. The Rhino
Low-level thug Aleksei Sytsevich underwent a series of chemical and radiation treatments that endowed him with superhuman strength and a nearly invulnerable exoskeleton. As the Rhino, Sytsevich (aka Alex O’Hirn) uses his own body as a powerful concussive missile often with brutal results!
6. The Task Master
From the very beginning (Avengers #195: May 1980) Taskmaster had a very straightforward origin story, He was born with something he called “photographic reflexes” which meant that any technique he saw once he could copy perfectly as long as his body could handle the strain. Able predict the moves his opponent is going to make because he analyses their body language and can often read what move they will be doing before they often even know it themselves. One of the only exceptions to this is Deadpool due to his chaotic nature. On top of the basic physical things, it also allows him to perfectly replicate voices fooling even Stark tech voice recognition software. So at any given time, he can perfectly pass for anyone he wants to with some help of tech.
Silver Sable (Silver Sablinova) is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. She is a mercenary, hunter of war criminals, leader of the Wild Pack, and owner of Silver Sable International. Although sometimes a legitimate mercenary, her methods, and motives have sometimes brought her into conflict with other superheroes. Occasionally, she is seen as an ally of Spider-Man and other heroes.
8. The Kingpin
The Kingpin (real name: Wilson Grant Fisk) is a major antagonist of Marvel Comics, originating in the Spider-Man comics and media. While still an enemy of Spider-Man, he has since then gone on to be the archenemy of Daredevil as well as a recurring villain for the Punisher. In recent years, he has appeared in more mature, realistic and adult-themed comic appearances as a result. Fisk is composed almost entirely of muscle that has been developed to enormous size, much like a sumo wrestler, and he possesses peak human strength with only the bare minimum actually being fat. His vast bulk shields him from many forms of injury, either providing padding or causing penetration wounds to only strike him relatively superficially.
9. Norman Osborn
Norman Osborn was the son of the wealthy businessman, Amberson Osborn. He had a decent childhood until Amberson lost most of the family fortune after the failure of his invention company, which had Amberson becoming alcoholic and violent. Young Norman and his mother would often be the targets of physical and psychological abuse by Amberson to compensate for his failures. This abuse had Norman realize that only the strong survive and that he will never be weak. This realization caused him to kill the family’s dog, seeing it as one less problem in his life. On one stormy and thunderous night, in order to cure his son’s fear of the dark, Amberson locked Norman alone in one of the family’s dark empty houses where Norman encountered and feared a “green, goblin-like” monster stalking him. Alone in the dark, Norman feared the monster would eat him once the darkness is replaced by the light, so he came to grip with the darkness, wishing it would never leave him. That night, he realized that the Darkness is better than the light.
10. Black Cat
