Black Spider II

Submitted by Andy Spieldenner

I was a fan of the original Black Spider. The second one is not so interesting: he’s a straight villain, mob assassin with some skills that make him dangerous, even for Gotham’s vigilante set. I see him as using more Spider-oriented gadgets (like the suction boots) as he puts himself against the Bat. He’s a reflection of the Huntress in some ways, and the two of them would probably hate each other passionately.

The Black Spider’s name was now in the hands of a mob assassin named Johnny LaMonica, an egomaniac who hated to cover his beautiful face with a mask. After infiltrating the Black Mask’s mob with the intention of killing the crimelord, the new Black Spider was brought down by Batman. Having smashed into a broken mirror, his handsome face was now a “web of scars”.
