    Gah! I couldn't get on Toonzone! The horrors!, but here it is--one of my all-time favorite episodes of the series! Awesome!

    To think that he lost his powers for over half the full story and how the symbiote makes his strength much enhanced: I'll believe it could be good to see the Sinister6 fall in 1 episode.

    Censorship was too strict about saying sinister in a children cartoon, but insidious is a very fine replacement

    After seeing the Sinister Six debut in last weekend's episode of The Spectacular Spider-Man "Group Therapy" .

    IMO The Insidious Six were done so much better . The Interaction between them fighting among themselves in this episode was handle so much better than in SSM .

    anybody know why it was "insidious" rather than "sinister"?
    With Great Power also comes a Great Responsibility...

    Apparently, the censors didn't like the word "sinister". Definitely one of the stranger restrictions.

    Actually, I think it's a good thing that the cliche "villains fight among themselves allowing the hero to win" was thrown out the window.

    Not to mention making Ock the Kingpin's lackey was just plain wrong. The Six are his show.

    I agree with on this one Doc Ock should not answer to Kingpin or no one else for that matter. One of the few flaw I didn't like.

    Here part one the Insidious saga uncut and unedited.

    The Crime Lords, led by Silvermane, are holding The Kingpin accountable for his failure to eliminate Spider-Man. So six of the Wall-Crawler's greatest enemies are called together to do the job: Doctor Octopus, Mysterio, The Scorpion, The Rhino, The Shocker and The Chameleon. Unfortunately, Spidey's powers have been on the blink due to the changes in his blood chemistry.

    The episode begins with a nice and short but in the same time consistent recap of everything that happened so far on the show, also showing us how Spidey's life is going along, and his fear of what his "disease" might actually be.
    Another interesting turn of events featured in this episode is the introduction of a new character, Michael Morbius, a new love interest for Felicia Hardy, and apparently Peter's rival (not only in love), but also for a science project at school. This is only the beginning though, as Morbius will play a much bigger and exciting role later in the series.
    Meanwhile, the Kingpin is freeing some of Spidey's greatest foes so far, and convinces them to try and work together in order to destroy Spidey once and for all. A nice touch is Dr. Octopus' line about how he is a scientist, and not a warrior for hire. The others are presented pretty well, as they each decide to join the Kingpin's army for different reasons.
    Spidey's life is taking a turn for the worse with this episode, as his "disease" is causing him to lose his powers from time to time, especially when he needs them the most. Doctor Connors is re-introduced in this episode, no longer the Lizard, but Spidey's friend and one of the few people Spidey can trust. The most important thing presented in this episode is probably Spidey's unknown disease. He falls on his bed and wakes up to find Spidey has been up to no good alongside his "Insidious Six". This is of course the Chameleon's work, and Spidey decides to stop them even if he knows he can lose his powers at any moment.
    This is just the case, and Spidey barely manages to escape from his aggressors. The Insidious Six decide to start looking for Peter Parker though, since they know he is the one who usually takes pictures of Spidey for the newspaper. Doc Ock is the one who goes to Peter's house and convinces Aunt May to follow him to the hospital, saying Peter is ill.
    Peter comes home to find his aunt gone and a note saying that if he ever wants to see her again, he must tell Spider-man to come fight them. Peter, even without his powers, must now save his aunt from the Insidious Six. And so, the battle starts...
