Rhino is a Marvel Super Heroes minifigure that first appears in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes. He makes his first physical appearance in the set 76037 Rhino and Sandman Super Villain Team-up. Rhino has a brickbuilt mech suit, similar to his portrayal in The Amazing Spider-Man 2.
As a thug, Aleksei Mikhailovich Sytsevich was a hire worker, until he was tested for an experiment that bonded a super-strong skin to his body. This skin gave him super strength and speed. He was primarily an enemy of Spider-Man.
In Ultimate Spider-Man
Alex O'Hirn was a normal kid going to Peter Parker/Spider-Man's school, who was tired of being bullied every day by Flash Thompson. Eventually, he stole a rhino serum made by Doctor Octopus and became Rhino.
In his new born appearance, Rhino attacked Flash Thompson at his home, apparently a gas station. Spider-Man fought him and nearly won, and he later becomes a member of the Sinister Six, which also consists of Doctor Octopus, The Lizard, Electro, Kraven the Hunter, and Scorpion (Might have been a one-time-only deal).
In Amazing Spider-Man 2
Aleksei Sytsevich was a Russian thug who stole Oscorp plutonium. He was thwarted by Spider-Man, which caused him to seek revenge. He was eventually allowed into the Sinister Six, and was given a large, weaponized rhino mech and terrorized New York. His rhino mech can walk on hind legs and run on all fours.
Rhino was one of the villains that escaped Ryker's Island during the breakout.
