Rhino wears a a thick polymer mat suit similar to a rhinoceros hide, covering his entire body except for his face. The suit is highly resistant to damage and temperature extremes, and is also equipped with two horns, designed to mimic the general shape and appearance of real rhino horns, capable of penetrating 2-inch plate steel. His first suit, more crude in overall design, was originally bonded to his skin and he was unable to remove it.
It was eventually destroyed and replaced with a removable, more form fitting suit by Justin Hammer after Rhino underwent further gamma ray treatments that further heightened his powers. The suit was specifically designed, via the gamma ray treatments, to somewhat enhance some of his powers.
|On Earth-1610, under unknown and classified circumstances, the man who became the Rhino stole an experimental suit of armor known as R.H.I.N.O. (Robotism Heuristic Intelligence Navigable Operative) from the U.S. military. The Rhino's experimental suit of armor gives him superhuman strength and durability, allowing him to crush a bank vault and motor vehicles with little effort, but makes him extremely slow and limits his range of motion.||Ultimate Spider-Man Vol 1 28|
|On Earth-26496, deciding to get rid of Spider-Man, the Big Man used Alex O'Hirn as a guinea pig in one Oscorp's illegal experiments. His body was infused with Dr. Otto Octavius newest innovation: super-tough polymer armor modeled after a rhinoceros. As a result, O'Hirn began calling himself "The Rhino". The Rhino Armor has one fatal flaw: it obstructs the pores of the skin, meaning he has to periodically stop to re-hydrate. Spider-Man realized he had to continually drink water, or he would overheat and used it to his advantage, as the Rhino was immune to every other attack.||The Spectacular Spider-Man (Animated Series) Season 1 6|
