History:
(ToyFare Spring Special - "Singular Sensation" article) - Due to unrevealed circumstances, the villains Rhino and Scorpion were merged into a single being dubbed Bullwhip. This merger transformed the body of Rhino into a multi-horned, even more armored being with a horned, scorpion-like tail that ended with the Scorpion's head and small arms.

Comments: Created by Steve Skroce.

    The character of Bullwhip was created as an action figure prototype sketch by Steve Skroce for Toy Biz's Spider-Man: Arachniphobia toy line. The concept sketch is dated 10/05/1995 but was not seen until it was published in an article in the ToyFare Spring Special (April, 1997). Unfortunately, since the action figure was never made, we don't have a card or box with flavor text to give much more of a background (like an origin), only that he was an amalgamation of Rhino and Scorpion, he was covered in horns and at the end of his tail was the Scorpion's head with tiny little arms coming from it.

    It is likely that Bullwhip exists in the same reality as the other Arachniphobia mashup characters, Earth-96201. While we did not have confirmation in the article, Bullwhip is likely some sort of human mutate, much like the other mashup characters created for the toy line.

    Bullwhip's name is spelled "Bullwhip" in the identifying caption in the ToyFare article but "BullWhip" on the actual concept art itself and "Bull-Whip" by Toy Biz product manager Jesse Falcon in the interview he gives in the article.

    Bullwhip's eye color was impossible to determine, as the only image of him was in black and white.
