One Spider-Man fan has created a stunning Scorpion armor cosplay that has a lot of resemblance to Green Goblin’s military technology in Sam Raimi’s films.

Created by Spider-Man creators Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, Scorpion made his comics debut in The Amazing Spider-Man #19 as Mac Gargan, a private investigator who is hired by The Daily Bugle‘s J. Jonah Jameson to determine the method by which Peter Parker obtains his photographs of Spider-Man. Jameson hires Gargan as an experiment subject for Dr. Farley Stillwell. This gives Gargan the traits of a scorpion and his signature costume which has a mechanical tail. The method is what drives Garagn crazy as he is infatuated by the predatory tendencies of his villainous alter ego’s namesake. Gargan is an ever-present danger to Jameson.
The Onscreen History of Scorpion
The Scorpion has been featured in a variety of animated projects, such as 1967’s Spider-Man and 1981’s Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, 1994’s Spider-Man as well as 2008’s Spectacular Spider-Man and the most recent, in 2018, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

However, 2021’s Spider-Man: No Way Home and a post-credits scene from 2022 Morbius have put doubt on the future of Scorpion. Both films led to Keaton’s Toomes traveling to the Sony Spider-Man Universe where he attempts to join forces with villains alongside Jared Leto’s Michael Morbius, instead of Mando’s Gargan. On the other hand, Kingpin’s introduction to the Marvel Cinematic Universe may increase the odds of having a Scorpion return due to their prior collaborations in comics as well as animation.
Marvel Studios boss Kevin Feige announced in February that the story of Tom Holland’s Spider-Man4 has been sorted out and the writers are “putting pen to paper.” The villains who will be part of Spidey’s upcoming big-screen adventure are still unknown.
