Spins a web of fun
18 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Spider-Man S1, Ep. 16/A "The Vulture's Prey" (1967) - Plot; J. Jonah Jameson stumbles upon the lair of the Vulture and is held captive. When the Vulture begins to force Jameson to reveal a series of top secret stories, it's up to Spider-Man to pluck the fiendish fowl once and for all.

The story is predictably dumb, with the Vulture learning about everything from diamond deliveries to top secret laser tests from the prickly Jameson. How or why Jameson would be privy to these secret, highly sensitive things as editor of a newspaper is never explained. But the fun is in the style and attitude of it all. In many ways, the 'toon better captures the Spider-Man of the comics than any of the live action movies did. Spinning one-liners and webs with equal aplomb, it's easy to ignore the silly plots and just enjoy the ride.

Spider-Man S1, Ep. 16/B "The Dark Terrors" (1967) - Plot; A mysterious villain who calls himself The Phantom uses special glasses that create shadows that he can control. With the city in peril, Spider-Man vows to shine the light of justice on the shadowy scoundrel.

The Phantom and his shadow creature creating glasses make for a fun foe. Spidey also gets to drop a few fun one-liners.

"Your inferiority complex is showing, Phantom!".
