31 Monsters #3 - Rat-Spider

The Rat-Spider is a denizen of Mars, and featured heavily in the promotional material for Angry Red Planet (1959). He's big and scary, although not particularly agile or mobile. We never get to learn much about him, he's only on screen for a brief scene, and then some jerk-ass astronauts blind him and drive him off. He makes an impression though, and I think it's no small coincidence that the introduction of the giant spider in Kong: Skull Island (2017) is very similar to how we meet the Rat-Spider, in both cases, unsuspecting humans think they are standing near trees, when they are in fact, giant spider legs.

Mood: Angry
Favorite Planet Color: Red
Dislikes: Getting blinded by sonic weapons
