Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse - Ranking Every Character From Worst To Best

The only time a swarm of spiders is a good thing.

Spider Man Into The Spider Verse

What is there to say about Sony Pictures Animation's Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse that hasn't already been said?

Between its enthralling story, unique visual style, and utterly breathtaking animation, it's fairly safe to say that this is a film that will go on to be remembered as a bona fide masterpiece of the superhero genre.

Of course, no cinematic masterwork would be complete without a wickedly entertaining cast of characters. And Into the Spider-Verse provides viewers with just that.

From familiar faces who have graced the big screen before (some for over a decade), to some truly deep pulls from the Marvel Comics' arsenal of Spideys, and everything in between, Into the Spider-Verse's myriad of characters (superpowered or otherwise) does not disappoint.

But of all the larger-than-life personalities on display in Sony's first theatrical Spider-Man feature, which were the absolute most entertaining? In all honesty, it's a bit of a tough call. Afterall, as this film makes clear, anyone can wear the mask.

Even so, let's take a deeper look and try to decide which characters most contributed to the success of this delightfully unapologetic love letter to Spider-Man fans the world over.

Spider Man Into The Spider Verse

In a film as packed to the brim with characters as Into the Spider-Verse, a few characters, lesser villains especially, are bound not to be super important to the plot. The Spidey villain known as Tombstone is an example of such.

That is by no mean a knock on the film, mind you. In fact, it's rather nice to see a villain as esoteric as Tombstone appear on the big screen at all. What's more, even if he himself isn't crucial to the plot, the jokes made at his expense to make the main villains look tougher to definitely land.


A film-loving wrestling fan from west Texas who will live and die by the statement that Return of the Jedi is the best Star Wars movie and unironically cherishes the brief moment and time when Deuce & Domino were WWE Tag Team Champions. Hates honey, but loves honey mustard.
