Doctor Octopus was the only super-villain to cross over on three shows (this one, The Incredible Hulk (1982) and Spider-Man (1981). Michael Bell voiced Doc Ock both this series and the Hulk cartoon which aired on NBC on Saturday mornings at the same time. See more »
I suppose most Spidey fans must despise this show because of it's rather small connection to the comics, but the main reason I liked it was because Spidey got Iceman (Bobby Drake) and Firestar (Angelica Jones) from the X-Men on his side, Iceman was mostly a neglected character in the Marvel Universe although he was one of the original 5 X-Men. Firestar didn't even exist until she was introduced into the show, but she later made her first comic appearance in Uncanny X-Men #193 . For the most part I watched the show because Iceman was my favorite superhero, Spider-Man still kicks ass though, Firestar was pretty cool..or should I say hot... I really enjoyed the show and you should check it out although by today's standards, this show is considered 80's trash to new fans, it is a guilty pleasure of mine and many other Spider-Man fans...
