    Good story arc. Loved the return of Captain America, thought the whole Captain America/Super soldier thing was handled beautifully. Not a fan of the 6 forgotten warriors, they should have had Bucky in it at the least instead of those JLA ripoffs. Liked The Red Skull. Didn't really see the need of the insidious 6 but they weren't bad. Its nice to see Electro handled properly thought he was great as a God and not some punk who got lucky to get his powers. This should be released on DVD as one massive story. Spider-man meets Captain America or something like that.

    The 6 warriors were not JLA ripoffs, but were actual Marvel characters from the Golden Age, back from when Marvel was known as Timely. But the only one who really made it out of the Golden Age was Capt. America, though Black Marvel did serve as a mentor in the short-lived comic series, Slingers. I don't really see how you could call them ripoffs of the JLA at all, since the characters seem very different to me.

    If you look up any of Marvel's recent Golden Age TPBs, you can find stories with the characters in today's shows.

    This is the reason why I loved Spider Man: TAS. For its great sagas. This was like the fourth time I watched the Six Forgotten Warriors, it still a blast to watch.

    Great episode.

    I'm guessing this mini-series was planned when season three was near completion.

    Anyone remember the episode Framed?

    great

    i thought this was a great saga. I loved seeing Captain America fighting alongside Spiderman. I don't know the comics history for the six forgotten warrior so i dont know if they nailed them in this ep. I liked seeing Electro, i believe this was his only Spiderman:TAS appearance. 5 starz

    Electro was such a beast in this series. In the comics he was like on Shocker's level, but here he was GOD, lol. Overall, great story but not as good as the secret wars, imo.

    Meh. It was okay. But I have on question: How come Marvel toons don't want to admit that Captain America is still alive and kicking? I mean at the end of this saga he gets thrown back into the vortex and is gone. Which I might add, was a horribly predictalbe plot point. And in X-Men Evolution Cap is still frozen in suspenden animation. The only place where's he's still alove is comics. What's the deal?

    I really enjoyed this arc. I remember reading an old interview where Semper said it was his big shot at writing a Spider-Man movie, with the big epic feel. And it works really well. I like how everything connected and led to such an awesome conclusion. And it was great to see Captain America yet again. Semper just did a real nice job weaving all of the parts and charatcers togethor.

    It was especially enjoyable watching it all in one day, the first time ever, I believe.

    I'll have to take your word on that but it just seemed strange that someone called "Miss America" had Wonder Womans powers and they had a guy that could run really fast.

    DC wasn't the first to come up with a hero who could run fast or deflect bullets. In the 1930's and 40's, there were alot of heroes who had similair (surprisingly similair) powers. There's this really good book I picked up about 10 years ago called "COMIC HISTORY" and starts from the first comic up to 1991 or so.

    The heroes in the episode were real heroes and were big during their time. Some have even popped up here and there in current Marvel comics in quick cameos and in specials. Marvel and DC both have characters who eerily resemble each other so it is easy to play the 'who created them first' game.

    Such a great arc, though. I was a bit iffy on their Electro, a they totally reworked him from the ground up, but he made for a fantastic villian.

    Good riddence, personally I can't stand Capt. He's such a 40's- 50's type hero. I know he's a cornerstone of Marvel, but I found him to be annoying and predictable. Even U.S. Marshal was more compelling then Capt. This is my opinion however, so no Capt fans on my case okay

    All rightall right I'll stay off your case. Buy even so, Captain America and Fantastic Four are the only Marvel books I buy. And this is in deirect contadiction with the "Secret Wars" saga, because in that one he picks Cap as one oh his heroes but how could he if this episode happened? BTW which was one first, "Six forgotten heroes" or "Secret Wars"?

    Secret Wars came after SFW's. Anyway theres no continuity mishap. The Beyonder is magical, it's not unbelievable that he plucked Cap and the Red Skull from that device.
    If Batman keeps Anti-JLA files does his protégé write Anti-Young Justice recipes in his cookbook?
