Hammerhead: I'm impressed. Rhino's still underground, and OsCorp's already got the contract to build his prison cell.
Norman Osborn: After our success containing Sandman, whom else would the city call?
Hammerhead: Meaning you get paid comin' and goin'. Sweet.
Norman Osborn: Very. But these midtown brawls... people are beginning to ask questions. Best to let things cool off for a bit.

Finally the big man
19 May 2017 | by stevenyellowSee all my reviews

Like the episode before it this one begins with a petty thug Peter used to fight turning into a classic spider man villain in this case being the rhino. What I love about this episode is how it breaks down many characters to the core the first one being J Jonah Jameson when he told rhino he knew nothing about Parker in an act to protect him, the second being when spidey comes face to face with tombstone. Not only did they make an exceptionally great version of the character they also managed to make us forget about kingpin but the real great part is when tombstone offers spidey a job and he responds "I can't ever look the other way again" it perfectly sums up the character and what he stands for. As for the villain rhino was extremely fun this was one of the funnier villains spidey faced off against from the bowling ball stuff to the whole only mama calls me Alexander it was really fun. The last thing to speak of is Mary Jane who appeared at the very end with her classic line, this one was on a whole new level of good and I hope the show continues to impress.
