June 27th:
Zap2It now has a log-line for "Rise Above It All".
I wonder if we'll see Liz/Screwball come back, given she was previously a social media wonder :)?

I'm also guessing we'll probably see Toomes pop up, if only to continue to justify listing Alistair Stuart as a main cast member :sweat:.
I don't think I've heard of any of them before.

I'm guessing they're a re-imagined version of the Vulturions, since they're also using stolen Vulture tech :ack:.

I wonder if one of them will be Blackie Drago...

Ya'll missed this clip for "Rise Above It All". :p

Yep, definitely looks like we're getting a revamped, "young and hip" version of the Vulturions :).

Oh hey, Ogie Banks returns to Spider-Man cartoons. It'd be kind of funny if that kid meets up with Miles at some point :p.

I'm guessing the plot is going to turn "serious" when Vulture comes after these kids for using his tech like that :eek:.

Am I the only one who actually doesn't like Norman and Ock here. The only antagonist o genuinely enjoyed was Sandman because he was the only sympathetic villain.

Also they really should star giving the villains actual origins, it's getting annoying at this point.

I love Doc Ock here. Norman, I think is good. I like him but not as much as Ock. Sandman is one of my favorites as well. In regards to villain origins we thankfully had a whole season dedicated to Doc Ock's origin (specifically the rise of Doc Ock four parter). I found Ock to be sympathetic as well with the way Osborn manipulated him. Of course, since then Otto has gone further and further down the rabbit hole and using this as excuse to amplify his superiority complex to never let anyone push him around again. I suspect we'll be seeing an even more sympathetic side to Otto once we get to the Superior storyline. I see to recall someone behind the show referring to that storyline as "beautiful." We'll probably get more parallels between Peter and Otto and maybe even more Otto flashbacks showcasing how Peter might have turned out like Otto without the family and friends he has.

Oh hey, the writers finally remembered that Miles can do stuff :p.

And of course he ends up saving Peter :rolleyes2:.

I hesitate to say that we had a whole season dedicated to Otto's origin. I mean, his development into Doctor Octopus took a whole season to really finalize, but I feel like his initial appearances were so sporadic and his transition into a villain so rushed that it wasn't as strong as it could have been :ack:.
With no sighting of J.M. DeMatteis yet, that still lends credence that there's more animated Spidey in the future past this season...

Zap2it has a log-line for "School of Hard Knocks", and the episode will have a guest-star...
This team-up is going to feel weird on a few levels, both because we have a 2-year experienced Spider-Man teaming-up with a Ms. Marvel who might actually have more Superhero experience then he does (depending on what continuity they go with) and because we might potentially be seeing Kamala hang out more with Peter Parker instead of Miles Morales :sweat:.

I'm curious if the boarding school or the students who'll be in it will be anyone from the comics. This would have been a perfect opportunity to work in the X-Men....
