X-Men/Spider-Man: The Animated Series (Earth-92131)

Ryker's Island was called Rooker's Island, a regular prison which wasn't exclusively supposed for super-villains. Both Richard Fisk and Tombstone were sent there for their respective crimes. The two teamed up and Richard used his connections to frame Robbie Robertson for Tombstone and had him sent to Rooker's. They then tried to escape but Spider-Man saved Robbie and the other two were sent back to prison.
