Trivia

The character Videoman was created exclusively for this series. Initially, Videoman was a villain, but with the video game craze of the 1980's, Marvel thought the character had more potential as a hero instead of a villain and set him up to be included in the X-Men for their own series pilot.

GOOD FUN
8 March 2002 | by Big Movie FanSee all my reviews

Spider-Man cartoons have always been great and I think this series was probably the best.

Spider-Man teamed up with Iceman and Firestar every week to battle all kinds of villains. It was great fun watching the three superheroes battling the likes of Dracula. The voice artists responsible for the cartoon characters really seemed to put some emotion into the characters.

To the best of my knowledge this show hasn't been repeated in the UK that often since it first aired. I would recommend it to anyone who likes Spider-Man cartoons. And what can I say about Iceman? Wow!

Try and hunt down some videos of this show if you can.
