Hippo is the name of a Marvel Comics supervillain.
Fictional character biography
Hippo was once an ordinary zoo hippopotamus who was turned into a humanoid version of himself by the High Evolutionary. He went on a crime spree until he ran into Venom (who was masquerading as Spider-Man at the time) who ate off one of his legs. After that experience, he joined up with the Redeemer alongside Dementoid, Doctor Everything, Eleven, and General Wolfram in a plan to redeem "Spider-Man." During the meeting of Redeemer's allies, Hippo mentioned his background as those who had their parts eaten off by Venom are outfitted with cybernetic parts. When it came to Redeemer's gang attacking "Spider-Man," Hippo and Eleven are eaten by Venom while Doctor Everything was arrested and the others escaped.
Hippo managed to turn up alive where he was seen fighting New Avengers members Spider-Man and Ronin. Both of them had a hard time taking down Hippo until Luke Cage ends up falling on Hippo defeating him.

Hippo possesses super-strength and has a hard hide that is durable. He is also shown to be very adept in the water.
