Ultimate Spider-Man: Marvel Reveals Ultimate Sinister Six Members

The Ultimate Sinister Six strikes in Ultimate Spider-Man #9 by Jonathan Hickman and Marco Checchetto.

60 years after 1964's Amazing Spider-Man Annual #1 first assembled six of Spider-Man's greatest foes — Doctor Octopus, Vulture, Sandman, Electro, Mysterio, and Kraven the Hunter — a new Sinister Six is forming in the Ultimate Universe. Marvel has been teasing that Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin of Crime, would bring together the supervillain sextet to battle the crime-fighting duo of Spider-Man and the Green Goblin in the upcoming second arc of Jonathan Hickman and Marco Checchetto's Ultimate Spider-Man, but there was one big question: Who are the Sinister Six?

Solicitations and covers for Ultimate Spider-Man #8 and #9 reveal the lineup of Ultimate villains: Kingpin, Mysterio, Kraven the Hunter, Mister Negative, Mole Man, and a gender-bent Black Cat. (In the original 616 universe, Black Cat is the femme fatale Felicia Hardy; Ultimate Black Cat resembles the Black Fox, a mustachioed black-clad cat burglar and career criminal.) Marvel Comics revealed the Ultimate Sinister Six on Luciano Vecchio's variant cover for Ultimate Spider-Man #9, which hits stands September 25th.


The first arc of Ultimate Spider-Man concludes with this week's issue #6 (on stands June 19). Along with the return of Tony Stark and the Ultimates, issue #7 will begin the arc leading to Spider-Man and Green Goblin's battle with the Sinister Six. See the just-revealed covers and official solicitations below.
