A fortunate Marvel’s Spider-Man player gets a lucky break while fighting two super villains at the same time when The Rhino helps them defeat The Scorpion. The clip itself is a hilarious action scene and a great reminder of how cinematic Marvel's Spider-Man can be.
One of the most memorable aspects of Marvel’s Spider-Man is the wide range of classic super villains from the series. The game doesn’t hold back when it comes to bad guys, even going as far as assembling the most famous villainous group in the franchise: the Sinister Six. The Sinister Six is created by Doctor Octopus in the game in order to finally put an end to Spider-Man, and his long-time rival, Norman Osborne. Two of the most classic members of the Sinister Six are The Rhino and The Scorpion, and in this game, Spider-Man has to take them both down at the same time, which can be quite a challenge.
Reddit user Yellowyellow19 posted a video of how they handled this intense fight from Marvel’s Spider-Man, and it involved turning the bad guys against each other. In the video, Spider-Man is seen landing some hits on Scorpion before his spider-sense goes off, warning him about the charging Rhino headed his way. Spider-Man jumps out of the way, letting The Rhino ram into his partner. Spider-Man then zips over to the downed Scorpion to finish him off but then stops when his spider-sense goes off again. He then leaps out of the way again, letting The Rhino completely obliterate The Scorpion.
The Rhino is one of the best villains in Marvel’s Spider-Man and one of the strongest characters in the Marvel Universe, so it’s no surprise that The Scorpion stays down after getting crushed. The surprising part about this clip is the fact that there are voice lines for this interaction from both bad guys, with Rhino telling Scorpion that he’s in the way, right before smashing into him. This means that letting these two villains beat up on each other is intentional by the developers, and players can recreate this scene if they wish.
It hasn’t been confirmed if The Rhino or The Scorpion will show up in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 for a rematch against the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. If Spider-Man 2 pits the player against two super villains at the same time, they should remember this video and try to use the two of them against each other.
Marvel's Spider-Man Remastered is available for PC and PS5.
