|Amazing Spider-Man #41 (1966)|
This Summer's Amazing Spider-Man movie won't have the thick skinned Rhino in it (it's got the Lizard), but that won't stop the two ton terror from rampaging all over the Web-Head's newest game.
One of Spidey's most classic foes- the Rhino is a prime example of be careful what you wish for. This once common thug was grafted into a synthetic Rhinoceros hide as part of an experimental procedure. Aside from the strength and toughness that he got out of it, it just can't be comfortable. I mean, just look at the rough hide- the chafing alone has got to be B-R-utal.
Of course the 'movie universe' version of the Rhino is a lil' different from the comic book original. To fit in better with the flavor of the film, this Rhino is a cross-breed mutant. The guy at the base of the character, petty criminal Aleksei Sytsevich, is still the same but he's almost become a mindless animal in this incarnation.
Rhino or no, The Amazing Spider-Man is shaping to be one good looking web-swing through the Big Apple. The game will launch alongside the movie, this July.
