Storyline

A new nuclear reactor has been built in the heart of Manhattan, and Peter Parker's science class is researching it. Peter is asked by his attractive classmate, Sonya, to help her that night with research about the reactor. As Spidey is making his way to Sonya's home, trouble is brewing. A demented radiation specialist breaks into the new reactor and threatens the city with ransom; unless he is paid $10 million, given amnesty from prosecution, and given permission to build his own reactor, he will use anti-gravity rays on Manhattan to lift it into the sky. When his demands are refused, he does exactly that, and makes a ransom demand of $100-million, along with the other conditions, and unless his demands are met he will deactivate the ray & send Manhattan plummeting back to earth. Spidey must abort his date with Sonya & tunnel into the reactor to stop the madman.

Quotes

Master Technician: The governor laughed at me. The mayor laughed at me. The idiot scientists who built this toy laughed at me. Now, I shall show them. I, the Master Technician. What do they know of atomic energy? Only I know! All my life, I've waited for this. They wouldn't let me build my own reactor, so I shall use theirs. I control this plant now. And now, it is time for them to PAY for their laughter! I have improved on their primitive reactor. I will teach them about energy, so powerful, it can do anything!

Groovy baby!

Plot; A disgruntled (and inexplicably green) scientist takes over a new nuclear power plant and holds the city to ransom.

Fear not faithful webheads! Our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man hasn't fallen prey to the temptations of these tempestuous times! The "Swing" in "Swing City" doesn't refer to the dirty deeds of those counter culture hippies with their rock 'n roll and hair down past their collars! This was a fun episode. The villain is, as far as I know, not a part of Spidey's actual rogue's gallery, and he's about as generic as it gets. But the drama with Peter/Spidey trying to balance saving the city with making a study date with a beautiful classmate is a hoot, and the visuals and music are super groovy.
