Dr. Robert Bruce Banner/The Incredible Hulk was actually supposed to make several guest appearances on the show, most notably the 3-part "Secret Wars" storyline in season five. However, the Hulk was unable to appear on the series in seasons four and five because of The Incredible Hulk (1996). As a result of the Hulk, and later She-Hulk, being unavailable to the crew, the Lizard was written in the Hulk's place in the three "Secret Wars" episodes to make the story more "Spider-Man centric" than the "Secret Wars" comic mini-series. It remains unclear if the crew of "Spider-Man" were able to use the Hulk, yet simply never got around to using him, in the show's first three seasons before the Hulk got his own animated series.

No, no take it back. It clashes with the color of my costume.

I watched this show every Saturday morning along with X-MEN in the early to mid 90's. I am watching season 1 through 5 now, and watching it brings me back to being a preteen again. But, watching it now makes me think how good of a show it was even if it was marketed towards kids. I think if it had a little darker tone and more violence it would be a perfect comic book to animated comic book series/show. I'm just saying, if it wasn't a kids show.
Anyways, I like how they take all the original stories from the original Amazing Spider-Man comic books and they do a very good job with bringing the stories to life. Even the new Spider-Man movies don't capture Peter Parker and Spider-Man like this show does. In the movie, they need to make Spider-Man more sharp and witty like he was in the comic books. But, for the show, it kicks ass. I think if you like Spider-Man, adult, kid, or whatever age you are. You will probably enjoy it.
