The Many Foes of Spider-Man - Kangaroo

He isn't one of Spider-man's most feared foes, but he is one of the lamest. BOING, its the Kangaroo mate!

Thus far, there have been two men calling themselves the Kangaroo that have found themselves at odds with the friendly neighborhood Spider-man. The first of these was Frank Oliver,a boxer who developed a super jumping ability after years of studying kangaroos (in his free time while not boxing). He turned to crime after jump kicking and injuring a boxing opponent. Frank later had surgical upgrades which actually made him a tough match for Spider-Man, but Frank met an untimely end when attempting to steal a rare isotope which ended up burning him up upon exposure.

Brain Hibbs, the second kangaroo was a big fan of Frank Oliver. He bought himself a fancy kangaroo costume complete with "pouch cannon." Hibbs found himself in cahoots with the Grizzly and the Gibbon. Later, Hibbs underwhen gene therapy to become more kangaroo-like. He also began to think he was Frank Oliver, and developed an Aussie accent.

I don't think popular demand will call for either of these guys to make return appearances any time soon.

Are you sure there's no way the Kangaroo will show up in one of the films? I think the "pouch cannon" has some serious potential.
