Is he the least interest of Spidey's big rogues?
Nah Toomes has the schtick of being old that makes him continually interesting. Mac could be interesting but they gave all of his stuff to other villains. Venom has the dark reflection of spidey better smyth has the angry at JJJ for doing shit to him down better, and lizard has better fights as being a green dude with a tail
Being old is not a schtick, being old is not interesting, fucking Silvermane has both of those deals and is more interesting than Vulture. No one gave a single fuck about the Vulture before Michael Keateon played him, except when Raimi was trying to write the worst Spider-Man 4 possible.
Being old is CERTAINLY a schtick when you’re fighting a dude who can bench a steam engine as a dude in nothing but a bird costume. He has some great issues in the late 70s (when we first learned his whole name) and his issue post civil war was better than anything mac has ever gotten
>Venom is the better evil bug guy with similar powers
>Dock Ock is the better robot appendage guy
>Sandman and Electro are better dumb lugs who lucked up and got superpowers one day guys
Scorpion is not even a fun team player that hangs with the other villains either. He might be cooler if he was pals with Mysterio and Electro too. And his costume is incredibly bland. I never understood why it had an open mouth, but Venom was better at that too.
Are we counting more modern 'big' villains? Because he's automatically better than Morlun, Mr Negative and every other new big villain. He's better than all of the mob villains except maybe Kingpin, too.
No, just the classics.
Are you counting Tombstone as a mob villain? I'd put Tombstone above Scorpion.
Tombstone's weird in that he's Robbie Robertson's nemesis. It's unusual having someone Spidey fights fixating on a second string member of his supporting cast.
scorpion's main thing was always about being a physical incarnation of the hate jameson has over spider-man
Scorpion is kinda funny because he was originally just this big, indomitable wall that Spider-Man had to be very careful around due to being completely outclassed in terms of power and endurance, but because he's dumber than a sack of bricks, Peter eventually got completely used to dealing with him and he went from being his then-most formidable foe to just another C-lister villain.
So many of Peter's most dangerous on paper enemies are bogged down by being retarded. Scorpion, Sand Man, Hydro Man, Electro and Rhino are probably the main ones. Electro truly has the potential to be the most dangerous of Peter's main adversaries, but he's probably the dumbest of the lot.
I thought Rhino's simplicity made him more dangerous.
Then just make him smart
Boom. Scorpion fixed.
The guy's been a retard for 60 years, that's a pretty abrupt change to foist on him.
Dillon's an electrician who spent weeks practicing and refining his powers when he got them, that's been his character since day one. He's not a genius but he's smarter than 90% of the animal themed bank robbers Peter fights. His flaw has always been either a lack of ambition or not having the ability to put all the pieces together. Video games making his go-to motivation as becoming a pure energy physical god is a step in the right direction.
>a pure energy physical god is a step in the right direction.
Didn't this happen in the MTV cartoon?
Nah, they all suck except Mysterio. Easily the most overrated rogues gallery in comics.
He was meant to be the anti-Spider-Man but came out so fucking lame
He's lamer than Killer Moth being an anti-Batman
