Which members of the Sinister Six could we see in Spider-Man: No Way Home and who’s the best of them?

After Spider-Man defeated Doctor Octopus one too many times, the villain came up with a plan. He’d recruit five of Spidey’s worst enemies and they would team up against him. Doc Ock brought  Sandman, Kraven the Hunter, Electro, Mysterio, and the Vulture together to defeat their foe. However, they were all defeated by Spider-Man because they decided to fight him individually.

This wouldn’t be the only time a Sinister Six was brought together and there were different members as well over the years. Characters like Rhino, Mac Gargan, and Shocker have all been members. There’s even been a Sinister 12 brought together by Norman Osborn.

It’s been all but confirmed that some variation of the Sinister Six will appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home. We know that Alfred Molina and Jamie Foxx will reprise their roles as Spidey villains from previous Spider-Man movies. It’s looking very likely that Willem Dafoe will return as Norman Osborn and there have also been rumors that Sandman and the Lizard will return as well. That’s five of the Sinister Six. The final spot could go to any number of Spidey villains we’ve seen in the movie. Among them are the Vulture (Michael Keaton), Mac Gargan (Michael Mando), and even the return of Jake Gyllenhaal’s Mysterio.

In every super-team dynamic, there’s going to be a hierarchy. In this article, this writer will rank the members of the Sinister Six that may appear in Spider-Man: No Way Home. They’ll be judged by more than their powers. We’re going by accomplishments in films, relevance, and importance to the team dynamic. Moreover, there will be more than six since we don’t know who will and won’t appear.
