    Do you think Gwen and Anya will get there powers in the Spider-Island arc and do you think there powers will be permanent or do you think they will be cured by the end of it??

    Just saw some leaked clips on youtube for Spider-Island arc Gwen gets her powers in part 1 and helps Spidey take down an evil spider she calls Stealth-Spider, She wears her costume with the hood but no mask in part 2 and her identity is known to the public as the Police who have Spider-Powers themselves call her Spider-Gwen, Hydra and Black Widow appear in the Spider-Island arc, Black Widow has acquired Spider-Powers due to the storyline and she also has a new look as she is not sporting long hair but has it cut short same voice actress from Avengers: Secret Wars.

    I know Gwen pointed out that Spider-Man having a secret identity might not have been the right idea, but it still seems kind of dumb for her to be running around fighting crime in a costume but without a mask on o_O.

    So she's actually called "Spider-Gwen?" I was expecting them to try and work in "Ghost Spider" :sweat:.

    I'm guessing Widow's short hair is like her "Black Panther's Quest" design?

    Black Widow's design in the Spider-Island arc is nothing like her Black Panther's Quest design, Her hair is a lot shorter then that, It reminds me of her hair style in the video game: Spider-Man: Web of Shadows

    So, I re watched several episodes recently, and, this may be fightin' words for some people, but I think I slightly prefer this series to the 90s show. They are really close in quality, but the action scenes and pacing are much better here. I'm pretty excited for the rest of Season 1.

    I would say the action is probably an improvement because this show doesn't have the restrictions that the 90's show had that prevented Spidey from even throwing a punch at someone.

    And while the animation on this show won't be winning any awards, it certainly doesn't re-use animation as much as the 90's show did.

    Pacing-wise, I think the main difference is Spider-Man: The Animated Series had 13-14 episode arcs, while the current show has been one, semi-serialized, 26-episode story so far.

    To clarify the comment about pacing, I always feel like, whenever I watch an episode of the 90s show, they crammed at least 2-3 episodes worth of plot points into 20 minutes. It moves at a breakneck pace and that hurts the rewatchability of the series for me.

    The editing on that show was absolutely horrible.

    ChessKing, if you have managed to see the remaining episodes of Season 1, can you please send information about them? Personally, I want to know as much as possible, but I'm very interested in the Spider-Island's episodes. I have several big suspictions about the events for next seasons and I want to find any detail that could confirm it.

    *Sorry for the Double Post*

    I have my reasons to believe a few things about Season after reading the limited details I found about the next episodes. Check:

    + As always, like in all Spider-Man's series, Season 2 will introduce more classic enemies of Spider-Man. And very probably, they will be associated with Norman Osborn. We can get clues from previous series to guess which villainswill debut next: Electro (an easy choice), Beetle (possibly the Ultimate version, as a "Spider-Slayer"), Carnage (although it will need restrictions), Chameleon (good choice), Mysterio (good potential), the Tinkerer (because of the movie), Michael Morbius (very likely) and maybe Hydro-Man.

    + In Season 2, Norman Osborn will appear as the Green Goblin. In "HobGoblin - Part 2", Norman Osborn uses the HobGoblin's gear to try to kill Spider-Man; however, Harry finally discovers the truth of his father and turns against him. (Well, thank Godness). There's a explosion in a lab for the final battle and Norman disappears. (Don't bet of his demise). Right before the explosion, there's a mysterious and inflamable GREEN liquid on the floor. (I'm not sure, but I believe it's the serum that transformed Miles Warren into the Jackal).

    + It seems that everyone on New York was cured from the Spider-Virus (including Anya and Gwen); however, maybe the cure didn't work good for all the people in New York. Remember, in the comics, Anya Corazon was infected by the Spider-Virus; and although they injected her the cure, she kept her new Spider-Powers. If that the case, there's a high chance that the cure didn't remove the Spider-Powers of ALL New Yorkers, just kept them "dormant".

    + The candidates to keep the Spider-Powers are the ones we already guessed by promos. Gwen and Anya are the first ones. There's a high chance that Black Widow will keep them too. (She would really be the "Black Widow" if she keep the Spider-Powers). Flash Thompson is another huge candidate. Mary Jane Watson, although she still has to make her official debut, if they respect the story from the comics, she could keep stable powers too. (I want to see her as "Spinneret"). Cindy Moon is another candidate, but this one has doubts (Anya's costume in the promo art shares traces from her Spider-Girl's costume and Silk's third costume). I'm not very convinced but, how about Black Cat (Felicia Hardy)? I'm pretty sure it would be interesting. Liz Allan could return to her identity of Screwball, now with Spider-Powers. (In the comics, the real Screwball disguised herself as Spidey once). Finally, Randy Robertson, who also gained powers in the comics' Spider-Island, so maybe he can give us something interesting.

    + The Spider-Island could have another effects in some New Yorkers. I believe some Spider-Characters, less related with Peter Parker could also debut in the future of the serie. The first one would be Ezekiel Sims, who could act as an "Anti-Uncle Ben" for Peter. That would introduce the Spider Society and some of its history. The original Madame Web (Cassandra Web) could debut here, potentially as the wife of Ezekiel Sims. We could also see familiar names like Jessica Drew and Julia Carpenter.

    + If my theory of the Spider Society is right, then we could see and interesting twist of another famous character. I know in comics, Horizon was involved in time travel's experiments, one of them involved Spider-Man 2099. And we know Spider 2099 could have an importan role in the future. But, how about if, instead of that, this Spider 2099 is actually a combination between Miguel O'Hara (the Spider-Man 2099) and Miguel Legar (from the Spider Society). I think this could leave any plan for the Spider-Verse for Season 3.

    + The Slingers are other potential characters for Season 2, resulting from other New Yorkers who kept the Spider-Powers. They were originally alternative identities for Spidey while he tried to clean his name from a crime he didn't commit; so the fact of being used by individuals with Spider-Powers sounds fitting. They would be Hornet (Eddie McDonough), Ricochet (Johnny Gallo), Dusk (Cassie St Commons) and Prodigy (Richie Gilmore).

    + Flash Thompson is an interesting key for the future. I believe he could have gained and kept Spider-Powers during Spider-Island, but I believe something else could have happened to him. I like his Agent Venom's persona, but after recent events in the comics, I believe Flash could actually turn into Anti-Venom in the future. How? Well, considering any traces of the Venom's symbiote inside Flash, combined with the cure for Spider-Island, that could give us Anti-Venom. And he would look like Spider-Man in his Future Foundation's costume. (But I still like his Agent Venom's self, with Venom's black colour).

    + Of course, it's impossible that only good guys could keep powers from Spider-Island. So, I have in mind several bad guys who could debut in future seasons and keeping Spider-Island's powers. One of them is Black Tarantula, which would be very suitable. (But even being a villain, he has a code of honour that could make him have a "complicated" relationship with Spider-Man).

    Well, what do you think? You wanna bet some of this will actually happen?

    I'm guessing the third episode of the season are those six Origin shorts edited together as one episode?

    That seems to be the way things worked out production-wise.

    It makes sense since the Origin shorts started off with Peter in his traditional costume, which he only got in episode 2.

    One thing I loved about the 90s show was the use of The Kingpin. He's so cool, favorite Spiderman villain with Norman Osborn and Black Cat. I don't know why Marvel doesn't want to touch him in any of the cartoons.

    Kingpin is too street-level for Avengers Assemble and outside Luke and Danny on USM there doesn't seem to be much of a push for the Netflix characters in the cartoons :ack:.

    True. Besides, after some years, I believe now Kingpin is more officially Daredevil's enemy (or nemesis) than Spider-Man's enemy. Kingpin mostly works for street-level's stuff, but Spidey's main thing uses to be "mad-scientist-mutation" stuff.
