Trivia

The character Videoman was created exclusively for this series. Initially, Videoman was a villain, but with the video game craze of the 1980's, Marvel thought the character had more potential as a hero instead of a villain and set him up to be included in the X-Men for their own series pilot.

every thing spider-man did should be on DVD
19 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

this was good but not as good as the solo spider-man cartoons of the 80s these cartoons we never or hardly see the daily bugle why Ted Swartz never did do the voice of spider-man in this show is strange as this show was i think a follow up to the solo series of spider-man in the 80's though i did like the x-men as guests and seeing spider-man in the danger room other guest stars in show were the incredible hulk Dr strange prince namor captain America, x-men. some of the best shows here are the origin of the spider-friends the origin of firestar the origin of iceman. and my favourite along came a spider(spider-man's origin) for me tells spider-man origin the best out of all the spider-man cartoons

i hope these will be on DVD soon
