[talking from a holographic projector]
Come on in Spider-Man. Take off your mask and relax.
[Shows a projection of Peter Parker]
Peter Parker? What's he got to do with this?
Oh I don't know what your real name is Spider-Man and I don't much care. But I would like to see a man's face before I destroy him! Oh and here's another face you might know.
[shows a projection of Karen]
Now where ever can she be? Let's see if you could find her before I find you!

Spider-Man Unlimited is a good show on its own... good original storylines, decent animation, but it's not the Spider-Man I know from reading the comics.
While there are some familiar faces, they don't always show their face, leaving our poor webhead to make friends with some new faces, who vaguely resemble some characters from the comics.
I'm not going to bash this cartoon because it doesn't follow the roots of which it came from. It's a good show, but it would have been a better show if Spidey ditched the hi-tech crap and stuck with his basic web shooters and proportionate spider strength.
