Spider-Man Villains

The greatness of any superhero is determined by the quality of the adversaries he or she must overcome, and Marvel Comics' Spider-Man is no exception to this axiom. Over the course of more than four decades, supervillains such as Dr. Octopus, the Green Goblin, Kraven the Hunter, the Kingpin, and Venom have become enduring icons of roguery, constantly challenging both Spider-Man and his writers to make their heroic best efforts.

Erotica Jones is an exotic dancer by night, crime fighter by later night. With a heart of gold, a passion for animal rights, and a weakness for fashion, according to the plug she received on Spike TV's website, when she's not busy pole dancing Jones lends a helping hand and sympathetic ear to the other dancers at the Tender Loins strip club. When her belly ring vibrates, Erotica jumps into action as superhero/secret agent Stripperella.

Super Friends

For thirteen years, they protected the Earth from within their headquarters, the Hall of Justice. If they had kept their title the same, ABC and Hanna-Barbera's group of superheroes would have been among the longest-running animated series in history, but even though they always got along, the Super Friends got new series titles on a regular basis. The core team always remained Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Robin, and Aquaman, although multiple other heroes and sidekicks often joined them for adventures.

Marvel Comics' shield-slinging Captain America is, bar none, the most famous of the star-spangled freedom fighters known as the superpatriots. But he was not the first superhero to wear the colors of Old Glory.


Joseph Campbell, author of The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949) and respected interpreter of heroic lore, noted that heroes often have helpers along their mythic journey. Though the traditional sidekick has often fulfilled this role through comics history, the superpet has occasionally proved to be a hero's best friend in perilous circumstances.
