Villain Overview

Gargan... please. You embarrass yourself.
~ Rhino to Scorpion.
The Spider-Man is broken. I would like to exchange for new one... Ah. This one will do.
~ Rhino to Miles Morales/Spider-Man.

Aleksei Sytsevich, best known by his alias Rhino, is a recurring antagonist in the Marvel's Spider-Man videogame series, serving as a supporting antagonist in Marvel's Spider-Man and the secondary antagonist of its spin-off Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales.

He is a supervillain in a mech suit resembling a rhinoceros and is one of the most well-known enemies of the famous superhero, Spider-Man. After spending years restrained in the Raft, the armored brute is released by Doctor Octopus, who makes him part of his supervillain group the Sinister Six.

He was voiced by Fred Tatasciore, who also voiced Shao Kahn in Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge, Goldar in the 2017 Power Rangers film, Tony Alpert in Battlefield: Hardline, Bane in Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City, Saren Arterius in Mass Effect, Poseidon in God of War (2005), and many more.

Personality

Like many incarnations of the character, Rhino is portrayed as a brutish and destructive villain who is willing to leave trails of mass destruction and has no qualm in harming others. While not exactly as dim-witted, he does prove to be rather simple-minded with an attack-first attitude and is also quick to anger at Spider-Man's quips and jokes about him. Rhino also desired to be rid of his combat suit that had been grafted to him, seeing being free from his suit as "true freedom" and even told Spider-Man that he should be thankful as he'd be less trouble without it.

In the second game however, Rhino shows a more sadistic side to him with how he faces the two Spider-Men and went ahead with causing destruction and potential murder at a mall during Christmas time. While originally wanting his suit gone, he appeared to favour more power and revenge against the Spider-Men more than that, which Simon Krieger used to his advantage. Even when defeated, he taunted Phin Mason over how her brother died and that she was unable to help him in an attempt to anger her into attacking him, which he succeeded.

Biography

Past

Born in Irkutsk, Russia, Aleksei was former mob enforcer of Russian origin, Aleksei Sytsevich became known as the Rhino after having an experimental combat suit grafted to his skin. Rhino was one of the several supervillains that Spider-Man came to encounter early into his superhero career. When he attempted to make off with millions in gold bullions, Rhino collided with Spider-Man, who ultimately subdued him and sent him to the Raft.

Marvel's Spider-Man

Now sealed within his rhino suit, seemingly forever, Aleksei wished to shed the mech suit and his thuggish reputation as the Rhino. Later, he was approached by Doctor Octopus, who promised to help him do it in exchange for dismantling the mayor of New York Norman Osborn and his empire once he's been freed from the Raft.

Rhino was one of the many criminals released during a massive prison break in the Raft. After leading an assault on the prison, Rhino brutally beat Spider-Man alongside other members of the Sinister Six. Afterward, Doc Ock briefed Rhino on his objective.

Rhino's task was to ascertain the supply routes of Oscorp's relief centers and lay waste to them. During an assault on a Sable International outpost, Rhino interrogated two Sable guards for their supply routes and schedules but was interrupted by Scorpion, who apologized to the guards for Rhino's inelegance before killing them both. Miles Morales, who was searching for antibiotics for F.E.A.S.T, saw this and was taken aback, accidentally making noise and causing the Rhino to hunt him down. After an intense hunt, Miles managed to escape the Rhino by staying out of his sight and by tricking him with sounds around the ambient.

Rhino is later intercepted by Spider-Man after engaging Sable officers. Scorpion came to Rhino's aide and together the two engaged Spider-Man in a battle. During the fight, Rhino and Scorpion constantly bickered with each other, as Scorpion considered Rhino to be stupid, and Rhino considered Scorpion to have no principles. Due to their shortcomings, Spider-Man defeats the two and traps them in a shipping container. Rhino was then apprehended by the police.

Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales

During a prison transfer to the re-built Raft, Rhino escapes which prompts both Spider-Men to chase after him as he rampages across Harlem causing a massive amount of damage.

Trivia

  • Rhino appears to be an amalgamation of his Earth-616 and Earth-1610 counterparts, as he is portrayed as a giant brute with a Russian background but his suit is a mechanical, experimental combat suit instead of a thick layer of polymer material attached to him.
  • In Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, Rhino mentions that his favorite sport is fly-fishing on the Volga River in Russia during the chase through New York.
