This episode is a strange one as it introduces spider-man to the show, but in a very controversial way. You see originally Josh Keaton and Darran Norris originally did the voices for spider-man and J. Jonah Jameson, but because Joe Quesada wanted to cross promote ultimate spider-man, they were replaced with Drake Bell and J.K. Simmons. While J.K. Simmons does a fine job, Darran Norris is the superior Jameson voice actor. However Drake Bell really does suck as spider man, it hurts even more considering the fact that Keaton is considered the best spider man of all time and was supposed to voice the web head. Well then that was awfully negative, lets get to the episode which is a great one that sees Captain America being treated wrongly by the humans thanks to the Skrulls ruining his reputation, but then being appreciated toward the end of the episode for his help in protecting the citizen's. Also seeing spider-man interact with cap was a really nice touch with him wanting to be cap's sidekick and all, viper was as fun as ever in this with her rivalry with cap being one of the more interesting parts of the episode. I'm still really bummed we didn't get to hear the spectacular voice actors however their lines were recorded so the episodes with their voices intact are stored somewhere in the marvel animation closet and if we want to get them out of there we're gonna have to spread the word on this, make petitions and spread #joshkeatonisspiderman and #drakebellisnotspiderman.
