Spiderman walks right into a trap set by gangsters intending to eliminate him or just keep him busy, so they start over, led by the seismic monster Shocker. That escapade also ruined the first check he finally earned for his self-pictures for the Bugle, needed to pay aunt's backward domestic bills. That leaves no time to help his only class friend, Harry Osborne; his dad has no sympathy and agrees to supply the 'super-monsters'. Written by KGF Vissers

Even villains have responsibilities
20 May 2017 | by stevenyellowSee all my reviews

Responsibility is the main theme of this one which is a shocker considering that this is a spider man episode. This one introduces the shocker and even changes his identity to Montana because the writers thought his original identity was too bland and boring and while it may seem like bad change I loved this version of shocker with his cowboy accent and how spidey makes of it. Peter failing his responsibilities because he has too much to deal with was an integral part of this episode as he forgets to help his best friend Harry study gets thrown in the dumpster and made fun of has his check ruined and even accidentally throw a ball on Gwen's head making her angry at him all this culminates with Peter going home and giving aunt may the money she needs pay those bills. The way spidey took down shocker was the classic "you missed keep trying" scenario which was fun to see unfold and in season 2 we get a callback to this when rhino and spidey team up. All in a great episode but with a little more misery in Peters life.
