Obscure Spider Man Villains

I've heard of most of them.

I wish they'd tell where the characters first appearance took place, as I'm sure that the ones I didn't know were from more modern Spidey comics. I didn't read any Spider Man stories from the late-90s until roughly the Brand New Day reboot (except for the Jenkins run).

A few of them I wouldn't consider obscure though...guys like Grizzly, Tombstone, Kangaroo. Those are all classics to me.

Only one merited mention from the Lee/Ditko days. Odd that, eh?

I was happy to see a mention given to the Iguana.

I was all set to complain about Tombstone being on the list, but the writer concedes "He's not as obscure as some of the other villains on the list, but he definitely isn't being used enough lately." I also learned Tombstone is black... can't recall anyone mentioning that in the DeMatteis / David / Buscema days.

Gerry Conway created the character during his second stint on Spectacular, during the 1980s, and it was known that Tombstone was black during that run.

Tombstone's back-story was that he grew up with Robbie Robertson in the "projects".
