While some are evil incarnate, there are others that are a little more sympathetic. That goes for the very first one you meet in Marvel’s Spider-Man 2.

In Marvel’s Spider-Man 2, Marko’s Memories are an event you can partake in to retrieve one of the Sandman’s memories. Due to some kind of sand-person process, Marko’s memories crystalize, allowing the Spider-Men to get insight into what’s going on with Flint.

There are 14 to collect. In order to do this, you need to go to one of the Marko’s Memories events on the map. Or, you can look for a site where sand is rising into the air.

Once there, you will be attacked by multiple sand versions of Marko. These aren’t too difficult, especially if you have some decent abilities already. Once you clear the two waves of enemies, you should be able to approach the crystal in the area and get the memory.
