Is that little girl Electro?

The current Electro in the comics is a woman (and was created by the show's consultant, Dan Slott), but the girl in the clip looks nothing like her.

I wouldn't have even guessed the character was supposed to be Electro if not for the electricity powers and turning into a blue, living electricity, creature at the end :eek:.

When are they gonna bring Harry back? When will Anya reveal her powers to Spidey? When is Miles gonna stop sidelining and start being useful?
They still need to follow up on that room that Norman left Harry (not that this show hasn't indicated an issue with dropped plot points), but I think Harry will probably be back around the time the Superior storyline starts.

The other Spiders are supposed to take the spotlight soon, so I imagine that will resolve the issues with Anya and Miles to some degree, at least until Peter gets back.

Well, in-case anyone was wondering who about the true fate of Doc Ock and who was really behind the villain gauntlet...the episode description goes ahead and spoils it for you :p.

It'll be nice to see Miles finally relevant again :).

So Ock has transferred his consciousness into the "Living Brain," like in the comics, although the description is acting like we should know what it is, but I don't think it's ever appeared before on this show. Unless it's Miles' robot :sweat:?

After they had mentioned it at the beginning of the season, I was expecting we would see Spidey have to break into or get stuck in The Cellar at some point, and now Spidey will probably have to contend with all of the villains he's put away there since the start of the season :eek:!

Well, I heard a bit of Scott Menville's Doc Ock in the Mystery Man, so this is no surprise. I'm willing to bet that Anya and Gwen will discover the truth about Peter as Spiderman.
I mean, the credits even listed Scott Menville as the Mystery Man's voice. If they were aiming for a mystery, they didn't do a very good job of it :p.

I actually wondered after Peter fainted when they brought him back from Spot's portal if perhaps Gwen and Anya took his mask off to see who he really was, but that would probably be a big breach of privacy if they did.

Reminds me of how they listed Jim Meskimen as a "Mysterious Figure" to keep Ultron a surprise back on Avengers Assemble. They even showed his face on screen (admittedly he was wearing a cloak, but you could tell who it was).

EDIT: Now to be fair, Spectacular Spider-Man did something similar as well, with Peter MacNicol voicing the Master Planner.

So he will jave to fight all the villains he put away in an enclosed area while exhausted for not sleepimg in over 48 hours. Well...wow

In these situations it would have been better if the show had a so how Spider-Man to show how much he struggles and perservers

I could totally see this beong something Spectacular Spider-Man might have done the idea is good it is just the execution

I think it would help if we hadn't become so accustomed to Spider-Man needing help just to stop one villain, but at least they were better about it in the last arc :sweat:.

EDIT 08/09: Clips next weeks premieres have been released:

"Brain Drain"


"The Living Brain"

I love how immediately after the first line of Spidey's heroic theme music played out, Miles got knocked out and the music soured. That was funny.
