Few superheroes have a roster of villains quite like Spider-Man's. Of the two enormous comic book universes DC and Marvel, only the Batman comes close to matching Spider-Man's rogues' gallery for breadth and variety. Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Venom, Electro... the list goes on and on.
In fact, the list goes on for so long that of the six major Spider-Man movies, we've barely touched upon half of his enemies. Where are the likes of the Scorpion, and Carnage? Chameleon and Mysterio are reportedly on the way for Spider-Man: Far From Home (hence their absence here), but there are so many of the webslinger's villains yet to be accounted for.
Of those, here are ten of the most essential, taking in un-powered alter-egos and teases, as well as characters who may have appeared in other franchises but are yet to battle the Spider. Unfortunately, yes, we had to count the Amazing Spider-Man movies and Spider-Man 3 as having existed, no matter how much we may all like to pretend otherwise.
Horror and Batman fanatic, Haribo fiend and Nicolas Cage scholar. I write a lot, drink even more and can usually be found listening to the work of Queen while styling my hair in an increasingly ridiculous quiff.
