Reading: Sinister Six (Earth-616)
The Sinster Six are a team of supervillains who have joined together on multiple occasions to try and defeat their shared bane of Spider-Man. [ 8 ] [ 9 ] The group typically bands together for a brusque time to try and reach their common finish, then breaks apart when they are defeated and later are reformed under the lapp list when different foes want to attempt a group attempt again. [ 10 ] The members of the team change with each reclamation of the team, with Doctor Octopus, Electro, and the Vulture being the most patronize reoccuring members. [ 11 ] many deriviative groups have formed using exchangeable names and goals, including the “ Sinister Seven ”, [ 12 ] the “ Sinister Twelve ”, [ 6 ] and the Savage Six. [ 13 ]
original Sinister Six
After suffering three defeats in a row from the wall crawl, web-slinging superhero Spider-Man, Doctor Octopus realized he required aid from others in order to defeat Spider-Man. He got in reach with every known super-villain Spider-Man had crossed paths with and only five responded : the airborne assassin the Vulture, the electrifying Electro, the wild Kraven the Hunter, the cryptic master of illusions Mysterio, and the shape-shifting Sandman. Knowing he ‘d never be able to keep the team together for long, Doctor Octopus cursorily formulated a battle plan that would give each of the villains personal aura and Spider-Man an early death. Each individual member of the Sinister Six would conflict Spider-Man in a cautiously chosen location, until the period where the wall-crawler was no more. Spider-Man himself had his own problems, as he had somehow lost his powers and prepared to return to normal life as a adolescent. While blaming himself for the death of his uncle Ben Parker, Spidey lost his libra and fell down the side of a building, land and clinging to a range pole. As Peter returned to his normal life as a scholar and a freelance photographer, he was unaware of the fact that the Sinister Six realized the Daily Bugle secretary Betty Brant played a large character in Spider-Man ‘s liveliness and kidnapped her, along with an impeccant bystander – Peter ‘s aunt May Parker. It was then left to the vulture to spill the beans to J. Jonah Jameson, warning him to inform Spider-Man that Betty was being held hostage along with Aunt May and if he wanted to see them active, he ‘d have to struggle the Sinister Six. Despite not having his powers, Peter put on his Spider-Man costume and went to fight Electro at an electric plant. During the conflict, Peter somehow regained his superpowers ( it was speculated to be a psychological block, caused by his own self-loathing for the loss of his uncle, which he got over when facing a life-and-death site ) and easily defeated Electro. Spidey then battled Kraven the Hunter, who confronted him with some violent cats, and defeated him excessively. After defeating Mysterio and his android duplicates of the original X-Men, the Sandman ( who trapped the wall-crawler and himself in an indestructible, airless chamber ), and the Vulture, Spidey went up against Doc Ock, who lured him into an enormous fishbowl. The two foes battled and Spider-Man was victorious. All six super-villains were subsequently sent to prison. [ 8 ]
The Return of the Sinister Six
many years later, the villains all escaped prison and went to get revenge on the wall-crawler. however, times had changed as Kraven had committed suicide, so the Hobgoblin took his identify. The group was organized once again by Dr. Octopus, who claimed they would try to defeat Spider-Man. however, this was a magic trick, function of a larger plan by which Octavius alone would be the master of the earth by extorting cocaine addicts. The Sandman, at this point in his career reformed, aided Spider-Man in defeating the Sinister Six, ultimately stopping Octavius ‘s plans to conquer the earth. [ 9 ]
revenge of the Sinister Six
A few months later, the group reunited once more in a wish to take over the global using estrange weaponry. Sandman ‘s foster kin was hit with a bomb, and Sandman, believing Octopus had attacked them as punishment for betraying him, joined the early members of the Sinister Six in a plan to take revenge upon Octopus. Despite his grief, however, Sandman contacted Spider-Man and asked him to shadow the group as policy against him being double-crossed or unexpected surprises. By this point, Octopus had already obtained his helpless Adamantium arms ( by killing a affluent, unethical individual who offered to sell the arms to him ) and stealing the old man ‘s automaton soldiers and weapons. Octopus well defeated the early members of the Six with them, then zapped Sandman with a weapon that transformed his support sand body into solid glass ( Octopus, however, was obviously not creditworthy for the bombing of Sandman ‘s foster kin, which was obviously done by the other members of the Six in order to coerce Sandman into joining their revenge system ; in addition, Octopus had not only anticipated the Six ‘s plan to reassemble and take retaliation upon him, but had measuredly facilitated it, even secretly paying Electro to help ensure the Six reassembled therefore that he could coerce the early members into aiding his schema ). The meet Sinister Six went off on a rampage, stealing advanced weapons and technology from several sources, including raiding an alien dimension for advanced weaponry and attacking a facility specializing in cybernetics, in the summons having respective successful encounters beating Spider-Man, the Hulk ( in his Professor identity ), Deathlok, Solo, and others ( before acquiring more advance extraterrestrial being weapons, the Hulk trounced the other members of the Six, then got stomped upon by Octopus because Octavius had the Adamantium arms ). merely defeated in his initial encounter with the Six, Spider-Man was left with hairline fractures on one weapon and leg, but was able to pursue them with aesculapian attention including cybernetic casts. finally, Spider-Man and several other heroes confronted the villains as they were seizing a Hydra base to gain access to deadly, world-devastating weapons ( during the Six ‘s raiding assaults on respective locations, the group engaged in wanton multitude mangle, merely exterminating anyone who got in their direction, shocking Spider-Man, as, despite their miss of scruples, these detail villains did n’t generally kill licentiously ). The last member of Octavius ‘ Sinister Six was revealed to be Gog, and a battle between members of the super champion community summoned by Spidey ( including the Fantastic Four, Nova, the Hulk, and Solo ) broke out, ending when the broken-glass body of the Sandman shredded Doctor Octopus, closely killing him. [ 14 ]
A variation known as the Sinister Seven was formed by Hobgoblin to fight Kaine, a bad ringer of Spider-Man that was killing villains, including Doctor Octopus and the Grim Hunter ( Kraven ‘s son ). The remaining members of the Sinister Six ( Hobgoblin, Electro, Mysterio, Vulture ) first gathered in the consequence of Octavius ‘s demise. [ 15 ] They soon reassembled with Shocker, Beetle, and Scorpia to actively hunt down Kaine. In the interim, however, Kaine was already hunting them. Peter Parker ( in the Scarlet Spider costume ) was forced to intervene and prevent any of his enemies from eliminating each other. [ 12 ]
Another return of the Sinister Six
Doctor Octopus was resurrected in time, and remained on bad terms with his former lackeys. finally Sandman put together another adaptation for the lone purpose of destroying Doctor Octopus and his ally, Senator Stewart Ward. When Spider-Man intervened, they were forced to add an extra member to their roll as a substitute for Doc Ock : the enrage Venom. The Sinister Six were defeated again ( Ironically, Venom subsequently went on to attack the assorted members of the Sinister Six, about killing the Sandman and badly injuring Electro and Kraven before he and his symbiote were briefly separated from each other ). [ 10 ] [ 16 ]
A few years late, Norman Osborn, the Green Goblin, had been unmasked to the public and imprisoned after losing a struggle to Spider-Man. [ 17 ] Defeated but unbowed, Osborn concocted a demonic contingency design. He contacted a group of super-villains who besides bore grudges against Spider-Man, and all of them had been financed by Osborn ‘s fortunes for years. [ 18 ] Eager for retaliation, the villains agreed to band together, and the Sinister Twelve was formed. [ 6 ] Mac Gargan, the Scorpion, was the de facto drawing card of the Twelve while Osborn was in prison, and it was he who kidnapped Peter Parker ‘s aunt May and threatened to kill her if Spider-Man did not help Osborn escape from jail. [ 18 ] A desperate Spider-Man, with Black Cat ‘s serve, broke Osborn out only to be confronted by the Vulture, Sandman, Electro, Chameleon, Lizard, Hydro-Man, the Shocker, Hammerhead, Boomerang, and Tombstone. Osborn, now in the guise of the Green Goblin, introduced them as the Sinister Twelve. The final member of the group, Scorpion, shocked everybody show when he arrived, revealing that he had bonded with Eddie Brock ‘s stranger symbiote, becoming the new Venom. [ 6 ] Although Osborn was displeased with Gargan ‘s new office, he however watched with gloat as the meet villains converged on the hopelessly outnumbered Spider-Man and Black Cat.

Despite the odds, Spider-Man and the Black Cat fought back in a heroic verse last stand. Before the two could be killed, salvation arrived in the form of Captain America, Iron Man, Daredevil, Hank Pym and the Fantastic Four, who struck back at the villains ( Spider-Man ‘s wife, Mary Jane Watson-Parker, had called S.H.I.E.L.D. to aid him for fearing he was heading into a trap ). A ferocious Green Goblin rocketed away and kidnapped her, and Spider-Man pursued him, fighting off Venom, who was trying to stop him. [ 19 ] Spider-Man and the Goblin clashed once again upon a bridge, this time with Mary Jane ‘s life at stake. Finally Osborn gave a full of life hint as to Aunt May ‘s whereabouts, and was defeated by a combination of being shot by Mary Jane, struck by lightning, and attacked by Doctor Octopus, who was brainwashed by the patrol into trying to kill him. The Goblin fell into the river below, and Aunt May was found and saved. In the aftermath, Peter received a pre-sent letter from Osborn, thanking him for all the “ excitation ” their competition has provided over the years and telling him to rest easy until they meet again. The respite of the Sinister Twelve were subdued by the heroes and arrested ; Gargan ended up, ironically, in Osborn ‘s erstwhile cell. [ 20 ] A new version of the Sinister Six apparently banded together during the superhuman Civil War, but were stopped by Captain America and his privy Avengers. [ 21 ] Spider-Man, the Avengers, and the Fantastic Four belated fought Doctor Octopus and his macro-octobot united states army. During that time, he had assembled another version of the Sinister Six consisting of Chameleon ( who was posing as Steve Rogers ), Electro, Mysterio, Rhino, and Sandman in a plot to slip the macro-octobot united states army into a military base and detonate them. [ 22 ] Faking an attack in another place, Doc Ock managed to catch the attention of the Future Foundation so he could enter the Baxter Building and steal some important pieces of engineering. [ 23 ]
- And, well, there’s a number of guys I’ve been getting ready for– for some time actually. Six of ’em.
As part of Doc Ock ‘s final design, the Sinister Six defeated the group of genius supervillains called Intelligencia and stole their Zero Cannon, a brawny weapon which change Earth ‘s gravity field to send specific objects to space. [ 24 ] Some time late, Doctor Octopus, in his plan to be remembered as the man who saved Earth, offered the probability to stop the Greenhouse effect, a well as rush it up, using a particular device connected with different satellites on the orbit. [ 25 ] Disguised as Al Gore, Chameleon tried to accelerate the decisiveness of world ‘s leaders about the matter, but was uncovered by Spider-Man, who irrupted the setting along the Avengers. When the Chameleon was freed, he arrived in the Mediterranean on a suffer with the remainder of the team. The Avengers followed them and arrived, fighting the Sinister Six, but they where all defeated by the villains, the price of the conflict was Electro, who was sent to space by Thor. [ 26 ] Using an explosion as a beguilement, Silver Sable saved Spider-Man and Black Widow. When they tried to get to one of Octavius manufacture plants of satellites, they defeated Sandman, but Octavius asked for help to all nations, due his position in the matter, to capture Spider-Man. [ 27 ] While Spider-Man and his allies continue to disarm Doc Ock ‘s bases, defeating Rhino in the process, they are attacked by S.H.I.E.L.D. forces before they can capture him and are forced to flee. Octavius asked for serve of early superintendent villains to watch over his facilities over the World, but even after Spider-Man tracks fawn the concluding matchless, Octavius reveals he was going to destroy the World anyways, rather than save it. He activated his augustus Lens, burning half of the populace, including Silver Sable ‘s country, Symkaria. But this was revealed to be a flim-flam of Mysterio, who alone burned a modest parcel of a city in Skymaria, while Chameleon used a automaton to fight Spider-Man. After they were defeated, Mysterio was convinced by Spider-Man to help him catch Octopus in his root in Guatemala, but Octavius used the mind-controlled Avengers as his new Sinister Six. Spider-Man, Sable and Widow managed to defeat the Avengers, then he and Sable headed to Octavius submerged al-qaeda. They are faced by Rhino while the base started to flood, he trapped coal black and left Spider-Man with two choices, to continue to fight him in order to save Sable from drowning ( but the Octavius would activate the lenses ) or let him drown himself and sable but stop Octopus. After leaving sable to her death at her request, Spidey managed to destroy Octavius ‘s arms and equipment before taking his enemy off to a sophisticate. [ 28 ]
Superior Foes of Spider-Man
- So what do we got, you ask? Well, let’s see— there’s the pretty boy driver— Overdrive. A pretty girl thief— Beetle. The new one. An advance guy who specializes in being the pain in the butt… in a room full of pains in the butt. Speed Demon. Obviously. Oh, right. And a coward. You always gotta have one of those. Thanks, Shocker. Together, we’re the new Sinister Six. And yes, I am aware there are only five of us, thank you.
Months after that consequence, Boomerang and some other super-villains decided to form a group as the “ all-new ” Sinister Six. They fought Spider-Man ( Otto Octavius in the body of Peter Parker at the time ), who captured one of their members, The Living Brain, reprogramming it to serve him. [ 1 ] Boomerang continued to call the team the “ Sinister Six ” in absence of a one-sixth penis, reasoning “ what ‘s a better softwood than being the Sinister Six, but only splitting the money five ways ? ” Boomerang directed the team on diverse heists for his own self-serving later motives, at one charge recruiting a small army of super-villains with the help of Owl ‘s connections and calling it the “ Sinister Sixteen. ” [ 5 ] The team finally broke up after Boomerang had thoroughly screwed everyone over, including himself. [ 29 ]
Swarm ‘s All-New Sinister Six
A raw embodiment of the Sinister Six appeared, dubbing themselves the “All-New Sinister Six”, consisting of 8-Ball, Delilah, Killer Shrike, Melter, Squid, with Swarm as the drawing card. This incarnation was fought by Spider-Man and the students of the Jean Grey School, and ended with Swarm being defeated by Hellion, causing the rest of the Sinister Six to surrender. [ 2 ]
Iron Spider ‘s Sinister Six
After obtaining a recolored interpretation of the Iron Spider Armor, Aaron Davis formed the latest incarnation of the Sinister Six consisting of Bombshell, the new Electro, the original Hobgoblin, Sandman, and Spot. Their objective was to carry out a burglarize, stealing a decommission S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier [ 30 ] to sell it to Lucia von Bardas. [ 31 ] Despite their alliance, Davis ‘ associates doubted him and Sandman, Electro and Spot even considered betraying him and split the money. [ 32 ] Hobgoblin besides attempted to go his own way, and made a deal with one of the Helicarrier ‘s Hulked-out guards to sell out the rest of the team after being caught doing recon. [ 33 ] Davis clashed with his nephew Miles Morales, a.k.a. Spider-Man, when Bombshell attempted to recruit her daughter, Lana, into their enterprise. Iron Spider confronted Miles, and warned him to stay out of the way. [ 32 ] After Bombshell forced her daughter to accompany them, the Sinister Six carried out the heist during a belittled window of time the Helicarrier was unguarded. Lana tipped off Spider-Man of her placement, and he attempted to stop the burglarize ; however, the Helicarrier ‘s Hulked-out guard returned, since he had been tipped off by Hobgoblin, which prevented Spider-Man from stopping his uncle. The Helicarrier took off and disappeared using cloaking. [ 34 ] On their way to Latveria, Sandman knocked out the Hobgoblin for selling out the rest of the team. He was then thrown out of the Helicarrier while inactive unconscious. The Sinister Six ‘s meet with von Barda was interrupted by Spider-Man and the Champions, who had followed the criminals to Latveria. The Champions defeated both parties involved in the transaction. In the center of the crusade, Iron Spider and Spider-Man were forced over the border of the Helicarrier, resulting in Davis ‘ apparent fall to end. He survived, and swore off the condemnable life sentence. [ 31 ] Following Doctor Octopus reappearance to villany, he wanted to fill the gaps in his memory, that occured after his hand with Mephisto. A demon called Kindred contacted him and told he could help Otto, in reelect for him to help the devil in it ‘s plans. Kindred gave Otto a list of five people, who he managed to acquire to help him. [ 35 ] After Vulture attacked Cage McKnight ‘s premier with his barbarous Six, Otto and his team arrived to the scene and began a war with Toomes ‘ team. [ 36 ]
