"Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse" was packed with nasty villains, led of course by Wilson Fisk aka Kingpin. After Part 2 has been announced for a long time, rumors about a new villain appearing in the sequel have begun to pile up lately. The site Murphy's Multiverse reports that Dr. Jonathan Ohnn, better known as The Spot, will become one of Miles Morales' adversaries. Fans may already be familiar with Spot from the comics or from the "New Spider-Man" series, but it is a nice idea indeed to introduce the new villain outside of the animated series from the '90s. The scientist Spot made a first comic book appearance back in 1984, where he was researching ways and means to multiply Cloak's superpowers. After a change of dimension, his body was suddenly covered with many black dots that he could enlarge or shrink at will to use as portals. After discovering his mighty superpower, he finally decided to live as a villain and fought the likes of Spider-Man and Daredevil. Currently, it’s difficult to tell how true the rumors about The Spot's appearance in "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2" are, but we will keep you up to date as always.
