Did You Know?


Electro was supposed to appear in the series before his eventual debut in Season Five's "Six Forgotten Warriors" story arc. Electro was held back from appearing, however, because James Cameron tried for years to write and direct a theatrical "Spider-Man" movie with Sandman as the secondary villain and Electro as the main villain. The legal rights to the "Spider-Man" movie went into limbo for over a decade, with Electro and Sandman still intended to be the villains. However, writer John Semper was able to include him into the series, but not as Max Dillon and he was not an American. Instead, a new character was created for the show. On the animated series, Electro was really Rheinholt Schmidt, the second Red Skull who was the original Skull's son and the step-brother of the Chameleon, none of which was actually in the comics. Rheinholt's real last name was never revealed on the show, though he went by the assumed name of Rheinholt Kragov while the Chief of the Russian Police in the "Six Forgotten Warriors" episodes in season five, and the Red Skull later uses the Doomsday device to turn his own son into the ultimate weapon, Electro.

The Greatest rendition of Spider-man there Ever will be.
17 April 2005 | by (Framingham, Massachusetts) – See all my reviews

Spider-man and X-men. There was nothing more a kid needed in the time of the 90s. Between Uncle Ben's sage-like advice and Nightcrawler's Piety, it's a wonder we all didn't revert back to the 1950's.

This show was a marvel of animation when it came out. In the spirit of Hollywood, cartoons coming out now are much blander and boring than what once was good, like this. The blended CGI which it was famous for was unique, and really helped to show New York in a "real" fashion (to us kids.) The story line can't be beat. While the comics go much deeper and have much broader character ties, this cartoon does the same thing as X-men and brings it to a realistic level that you can watch, and understand, without having to dig through comics to see what the hell just went on and who's who. Whereas the movies of both franchises have simple stories and characters (but big special effects), and the comics have HUGE stories and unlimited characters, the shows are a perfect zen of the two.

The best part of the whole series is easily the voices. The voices brought this show from the comic pages to the small screen. Christopher Daniel Barnes will always be Spider-man to me. Edward Asner (JJJ) and Jim Cummings (Shocker.) The absolute best is Roscoe Lee Brown as the Kingpin. The role was made for him.

The end of this show was really perfect, they redid the clone saga (which caused a HUGE upset in the comics) and gave it a much, much happier (and plausible) ending. Scarlet Spider is still there and he still kicks, along with Madam Web and the Beyonder. Spider-Carnage is also there, as evil as ever. Spider-Carnage's character represents a lot of hatred and malice that can be found in each and every person. The end of the series always gives me a sad/happy nostalgia.

This is one of the greatest shows ever made. Hands down.
