    I like Tobey Maguire more than Andrew Garfield in the role of Spider-Man

    I'm sad to admit i can no longer continue watching this show. It is far too childish and i feel this a poor representation of the Spiderman character. Throughout this episode Peter made numerous decisions, which made no logical sense, for the sake of his ego. He is meant to have a genius intellect, yet he is repeatly making the mistakes of a petulant child. In addition to this, the constant , 'funny moments' are a distraction and i feel unsuitable for this type of show.

    I greatly dislike this episode. I hope that it will be the last of its kind in this show. It wasn't funny, and the characters are all unlikeable. It just was... pathetic. I gave this episode one star. I'll be watching the three next episodes before I decide to bail out of this.

The previous White Tiger was Angela Del Torro, who was Hector Ayala's cousin. There have been, like, five White Tigers all together.
    Ah, that was Angela in Daredevil. Her I liked.

    Yeah, plus that Black Panther cartoon never aired. Blade's not a superhero per se (and you can only market him so much when he's chopping things' heads off and stabbing people in the chest), and as I mentioned, T'Challa (and even Rhodey) are covered head to toe so on first glance you may not know they aren't white. Falcon's got that base covered (that is, until Luke Cage's rising popularity is enough to eclipse him).

    I liked her too. I bought her miniseries. Why they didn't just deage Angela for the role in this show, I'll never know. A younger version of her would probably even fit the personality type for this White Tiger. "Overachieving perfectionist" sounds about right for someone who goes on to be an FBI agent.

    I don't know, maybe it's me, but I really don't quite get the appeal of modern Cage. The 1970s G-rated black-exploitation superhero seems more fun. The current version is just some dude who hangs with the Avengers and so far, the Power Man on this shoiw hasn't really done anything.

    Then again, I may just have a weakness for the old-school.
    Saturday Morning is not just part of the week. It's a state of mind.

    You're done?
    Good.

    This show is fairly decent. Not great. Not perfect. Not "The Spectacular Spider-Man", to be sure.
    But it's far, far, FAR from "god awful".
    And anyone who doesn't like Teen Titans has horrendous taste in my book.

    I'm enjoying what I've seen of it thus far. I hope to see more soon. I can't wait to see what this show does with Wolverine, Hulk, and the other characters it's got lined up.

    I thought this episode was decent. I'm starting to get used to Drake Bell's voice, and at first I wasn't a fan of Doom's voice based off one of the preview clips, but hearing it out throughout the episode, I liked it. It was awesome to see Doom so early and so close to his appearance in EMH.

    The humour was hit or miss here. The jetpack gag got old real quick, but I did like Coulson's going native, Nova as a baby and Spidey, Fury and Doom having dinner.

    White Tiger was annoying in this one, but I understood where she was coming from, since Spidey and Nova were acting like idiots. But since Cage and Iron Fist weren't, she didn't need to classify all boys as stupid. Hopefully she'll move on from that characterization quickly.

    You probably are. Sure he has less influence on the show than Man of Action, but he's still a consultant for the show, and he did write the first two episodes, and like WC Reaf said, he's no stranger to writing more comedy oriented cartoons. Not to mention he did have the idea to have Spidey break the 4th wall independent from the other guys involved in USM. I get that Dini is a fan favourite, but he's very much involved in this show, so whether you like it or don't, Dini deserves credit/blame.

    Yeah, that was pretty much the point of the episode.

    They kinda didn't. Due to Sony selling back the the animation rights for Spider-Man to Marvel, but not the trademarks for Spectacular Spider-Man, Marvel couldn't make more Spectacular even if they wanted to. So basically their only choice was a new Spidey toon.

    How is this in anyway like a teen drama?

    It wouldn't have worked. Besides, Ava is Hector Ayala's sister and since they mentioned that the White Tiger mantle is a family Legacy, we'll probably see her reference Hector at some point, maybe Angela too.

    Plus, Ava actually wants to be a hero, while Angela kinda didn't.Ángela wasn't exactly an overachiever either. I like both in any case.

    Yup, she was telling them it was a bad idea, Spidey agreed, but then Nova locked the ships door as she walked in and they took off.

I suppose without any backstory she just seems like a jerk for no reason, though.

    I wonder if the supporting heroes will get any spotlight on their lives and backgrounds in this show. I know it's Spidey's show, but still.
    They said they would, so yeah.

    It seems the Taskmaster episode focuses on Spidey and White Tiger, so we'll probably get more on her there.

    With great power, comes great responsibility... and chances to ignore responsibility for the sake of one-up-manship
    No really, THAT was what I found to be the worse thing about this mistake; its a clear and blatant violation of Spidey's defining credo. He even openly acknowledges that what they are doing is irresponsible and dangerous but in the same breath decides to ignore it for no good reason. Sure there have been times when Spidey faltered or failed to follow his credo, but it was generally in cases when the mistakes were easier to miss, when he buckled under the pressure that comes with trying to carry on such a burden, or when he believed he may be doing more harm than good. This is just plain stupid and irresponsible.

    Hell what makes it even worse is that just LAST EPISODE, Spidey was turning down Fury's offer because he did not want to lead a bunch of novices into danger... That was pretty good moment for spidey (though i might argue it was both responsible and irresponsible given the circumstances... kinda of a grey area)... So what does he do just one episode later? He leads them into a fight with one of Marvel's most dangerous villains.

    And its not JUST a mistake, but a NOVICE mistake. Spidey is supposed to be leading this team because he is the one who has the experience fighting super-powered baddies. And yet on his first day he makes a mistake that only novices would make; getting overconfident and charging against an A-list villain. THIS would have been the time for Spidey to step up and show WHY he's gonna lead this team; the team should have been the novices that charge into certain doom, while spidey is the one who warns them not too and then pulls their butts out of the fire; it would have even been a great way for Spidey to earn the team's respect. As it is, Spidey makes the same mistakes as the novices.

    And the basic premise is even off... They believe that they needed to take down a super villain to prove they were ready. And yet just last episode they took down 3 of the frightful four; they already proved themselves. Granted, you could argue that spidey did most of the work and thus the team still needs to prove themselves... But spidey himself should still not feel he needs to prove himself

    How is this in anyway like a teen drama?
    Well Peter is getting agnsty about the others invading his personal life and they are openly interfering, and hanging out with his friends. It becomes more obvious in the following Venom episode. Though i would not say that teen drama itself is a problem since a big part about spiderman is the drama that goes on in his normal life as he tries to balance things out... though the execution may still come under scrutiny.

    I really like.....

    like the look and feel of the show. Great action sequences, designs and VA. I even like the snarky/wise cracking take on the Peter Parker/SpiderMan character.

    What I find disappointing is the jokes aren't funny. I wouldn't mind the cut aways and anime features if they made me chuckle; but so far they just break up the flow of the action with no reward.

    It's hard to be funny all the time, but with the number of attempts in the first three episodes, I would think they could at least got lucky once or twice?
