With news that The Spot is set to make his big-screen debut in the upcoming Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse, fans of the Spider-Man series are eager to learn more about this intriguing villain.


Created by writer/artist John Byrne, The Spot first appeared in Peter Parker, The Spectacular Spider-Man #97 in January 1985 and has since become a recurring enemy of Spider-Man. Dr. Jonathan Ohnn, a brilliant scientist who becomes a supervillain after an experiment gone wrong, is the Spot’s real name.

With his unique appearance and teleportation powers, The Spot is sure to make an unforgettable addition to the movie’s roster of villains. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at The Spot’s origins, powers, and past battles, including his encounters with Miles Morales in the comic book series.

Dr. Ohnn was working on a revolutionary form of teleportation, which involved the creation of “spots” in space-time. However, during a critical test, the experiment went awry and Ohnn was transformed into a being made of pure energy, with a number of “spots” on his body that he could use to teleport himself and others across vast distances. The transformation drove Ohnn insane, and he decided to use his powers for personal gain and destruction.
