    Episode #14 - The Insidious Six
    Original Airdate - September 9, 1995

    In order to finally kill Spider-Man, the Kingpin hires the Insidious Six (Doctor Octopus, Scorpion, Chameleon, Shocker, Rhino and Mysterio) to take him down. Farley Stillwell also creates Neogenics, which starts taking away Spider-Man's strength. After losing his powers, Spider-Man is captured by the Insidious Six.

    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 .

    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.
