Putting The Spotlight On A New Villain | SPOILERS

Published

on

If you haven’t watched, Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, I recommend you swing by a cinema near you and experience the latest movie in the world of Marvel and Sony.

In the movie, Miles is balancing both the life of a student and the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man. Eventually he reunites with Gwen Stacy and you can feel the emotion between the two. He ends up traversing the famous multiverse, which is the current saga within the Marvel Cinematic Universe, where Miles finds himself face to face with new adversaries. Today, we’ll be putting the spotlight on one particular villain in the movie, the Spot.

Spot’s origin in the movie is due to the fusion of Dr Jonathan Ohnn’s body with portals after the collider exploded in the first movie. Imagine the dilemma when his life gets ruined because of his image, and blames Miles’ for everything. Well at least Miles didn’t call anyone’s technology BARF…but still, this becomes Spot’s main M.O., a life of crime and complete hatred for Miles. The upside is his ability to travel to different universes which could make him one slippery villain to catch.

But, where does he come from? And what is his origin within the world of Marvel?

Jonathan, a Pd.D engineering graduate is found in the employ of the infamous Wilson Fisk researching dimensional energy. He manages to create a large portal and steps into it, finding himself in a spotted dimension. He realizes the holes can be used as portals and on returning to his world, he re-emerges as an embodiment of the spotted dimension. When Spider-Man arrives to confront Wilson, Jonathan intervenes and introduces himself as the Spot. Even though Spot squares off on his own with Miles he is no stranger to alliances. The Spot teams up with M.O.D.O.K, Dr Octopus and even Mr Negative in the comics.

I’m really looking forward to seeing Spot on screen again and hope in some way Jonathan finds himself in the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a supervillain. Just imagine your favorite Avengers being thrown across dimensions or their loved ones falling away into the Dark Dimension – potential horror movie.

My question to you as the audience, if you could be the villain in a Spider-Man production, what would be your villain origin story?

Ezekiel Sims: Character Profile

Published

on

Ezekiel Sims (Marvel)

Founder of the Spider Society. A successful, but sinister business man. A Spider-Mentor. Here follows a brief background of Ezekiel Sims.

Hidden Motives

Ezekiel used his financial capital and influence to save a temple in Peru from being demolished all because of the chance to be a subject of the ritual that would grant him spider-like abilities. However, as a power-hungry man, he never feels satisfied for the quest for power. He obtains superhuman strength, speed, reflexes and superb resilience. He can stick to wall and also possess spider-senses. He however, does not rely on web-shooters or any other artificial gadgets and tools. He studies all the various ceremonies of the Spider-Clan.

Friends and Foes

Ezekiel finds himself helping out the friendly neighborhood Spider-Man many times but usually with his own agenda in mind. He even trains a new protégé and is forced to protect her from a vampire. Lets see who can guess who the vampire is, and no, I’m not referring to Morbius. Ezekiel finds himself the target of some sinister characters beyond the astral plane and he sacrifices himself to save the life of Peter Parker.

Sinister beginnings but with a noble ending, that is Ezekiel Sims. However, Tahar Rahim plays the primary antagonist in the Madame Web movie that has released last week. What is his motives or objectives this time?
