Max Dillion, played by Jamie Foxx, started off as some one who was never acknowledged by anyone, until the day Spiderman saved his life, and acknowledged him, afterwards becoming obsessed with him.
While employed by Oscorp on his birthday he was asked to stay behind at work, while the entire company left work for the day, including janitors, security, interns, to fix a broken power line. In the process of doing the work Max has an incident that could have taken his life, but instead gave him super powers and made him look, nonhuman. After his dramatic change in image, and uncontrolled power, as he walked through the streets of New York City, he accidentally caused a scene prompting Spider man’s arrival and shortly afterwards the police, who eventually captures him with Spidermans help, after trying to shoot / kill him with their own weapons.
While captured and in a highly secure prison institution, his former job Oscorp took measures to prove Max never existed, to cover up their neglectful mistakes, since no one to that point was looking for him, or asking about him.
Evenually he is escaped from prison where he becomes one of the super villains of the movie and fights Spider-Man, & Spider-Man always wins, in this case possibly killing off the only black person in the movie.
To sum it up the only black man, was overworked, almost died, was wrongfully targeted, became a villian, and possibly died again. I wonder how much fun they had with this one.
Even though I took my daughter to see the Amazing Spider Man 2 when it was 1st released in theaters, held my tongue to prevent a spoiler alert for those who had yet to see it and want to see it.
