Hi. This is Thesecret1070. I am an admin of this site. Edit as much as you wish, but one little thing... If you are going to edit a lot, then make yourself a user and login. Other than that, enjoy Villains Wiki!!!
I know what you're going to say, but just hear me out: the system works most of the time. But there are times when it doesn't, and to me that's unacceptable. Some people put their trust in fate, or karma, or whatever. But I, can only trust me. (Spider-Man: You can't kill people, Yuri.) Apparently I can. And you know what? It felt good.
~ Yuri embraces vigilantism.
Yuriko "Yuri" Watanabe is the tritagonist of the 2018 video-game Marvel's Spider-Man and a major antagonist in the DLC episode trilogy The City that Never Sleeps, appearing as the secondary antagonist of Episode 2: Turf Wars and as a minor antagonist in Episode 3: Silver Lining.
Although initially an ally of Spider-Man, in the add-on DLC that takes place after the base game, she embraces violent vigilantism in the face of the continued murders of the Maggia and the limitations of conventional policing. She is currently at large.
Yuriko Watanabe is introduced as a long-standing policewoman who has maintained a working relationship with Spider-Man for years. Although often annoyed by his flippancy and in particular his jokes and "Spider-Cop" monologues, Yuri nevertheless appreciates Spider-Man's presence, and the two work together well throughout the game's story, Yuri even saving Spider-Man's life after he is savagely beaten by the Sinister Six and thrown into the ocean.
Tragically, when Yuri later tried to bring down the Maggia and their leader Hammerhead, he murdered all of her men and then tried to kill her too before Spider-Man saved her. Subsequent murders of police officers by Hammerhead and his men pushed Yuri over the edge entirely, and she took a discarded Sable-tech rifle and went on an independent rampage against the Maggia, effectively going outside police procedures and regulations to get what information she needed and eventually, corner Hammerhead himself. After Spider-Man beat him into submission, Yuri shot him repeatedly in an effort to kill him, but Hammerhead did not die, and Yuri was sent on administrative leave.
Unsatisfied with this, and now having a taste for vigilante justice, Yuri later tracked down and murdered a Maggia hitman who had earlier killed numerous people, including a therapist the hitman had been going to who had actually been a spy for Yuri to get incriminating evidence against him. Spider-Man later found the dead Maggia hitman and admonished Yuri for her actions over the phone, but by now Yuri had embraced vigilantism in full and bade farewell to her old friend before ending the call, leaving the webslinger despondently unsure of what to do now that she's gone rogue. Her current whereabouts are unknown.
Yuriko Watanabe's descent into violent vigilantism also occured in the comics, where she also took on the costumed identity "Wraith" (an alias held by a few other characters as well).
Unlike most characters, Yuri is not mentioned in the 2020 spin-off Marvel's Spider-Man: Miles Morales, so it's likely that she is still at large.
