Donald Menken is the quinary antagonist in The Amazing Spider-Man 2. He is a fictional character from the Marvel Comics' Spider-Man series. Created by writer Roger Stern and artist John Romita, Jr. in 1983. He was portrayed by Colm Feore.
Donald Menken works as Norman Osborn's personal assistant at Oscorp Industries. He brings Norman's son, Harry back to New York to see his father on his deathbed. When Norman dies the day after, Harry becomes head of Oscorp and Menken's new boss.
After causing a scene in a board meeting, Harry shows signs of non-cooperation with the executives and Menken plans to replace him. To do this he silently covers up the incident that occurred at the company to employee Max Dillon and frames Harry as the one responsible for it. He then installs himself as the new C.E.O. of Oscorp.
Upon forming an alliance with Dillon, now "Electro", he and Harry infiltrate Oscorp Tower and confront Menken. Electro shocks him until unconsciousness takes him. He wakes him up and Harry holds Menken at gunpoint to take him to Oscorp's special projects branch in order to take a sample of venom from the spiders breed by Richard Parker. On Harry's command he injects the venom into Osborn's arm before his body starts to reject it. Menken uses this opportunity to run to an elevator and escape the building.
In the deleted scene, Harry grabs him and flies up to the air. Donald begged for his life. Harry murders him by dropping him to his death.
