Why The Rhino?

The Rhino came to be when thug-for-hire Aleksei Mikhailovich Sytsevich volunteered for an experiment that bonded a super strong polymer to his skin. Naturally, this polymer suit- similar to a rhinoceros's hide, and outfitted with twin horns that can penetrate steel - augmented Sytsevich's strength and speed, and turned him into one of Spider-Man's strongest villains.

And now, a character featuring in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, portrayed by Paul Giamatti.

Here's the truth: I don't recall any standout Rhino stories. I can't pinpoint any quintessential Spidey versus Rhino moments. Not to worry: lets create some in our scripts this week.

And, uh, if you want to fill me in on the best Rhino stories? That's what the comments are for!



  1. "Flowers for Rhino" has stuck in my head for years. Part of Spider-Man's Tangled Web.

    1. Agreed. Also, his tale in the Gauntlet storyline fighting another Rhino is also very well done.
