Peter Parker is struggling to help Aunt May pay bills when a criminal organization calling themselves “The Triangle of Evil” informs the news they’re about steal from museums around the city. Can Spider-Man stop them before he’s evicted?
I know one of the appealing things about Spider-Man is that he’s just a normal guy dealing with normal world problems while also having to deal with supervillains occasionally attacking New York. But this one seemed a tad too ridiculous during different points. The variety show conveniently giving out the exact money he needs to help his Aunt May. Or that everyone seems to be charging Spider-Man for the furniture and windows he breaks, even though he just saved their lives. It’s things like these that push my limits of disbelief and therefore ruin my enjoyment of the show.
Actually, this whole episode feels like Spider-Man simply fell into a completely different show. It doesn’t feel like any of your typical superhero stuff. I know that the comics get pretty wonky sometimes, but this is the 11th episode in a series and we haven’t even seen Rhino yet… I’m just saying there’s more superhero stuff that Spider-Man could be doing before it devolves into this silly stuff.
+0: I’m struggling to think of anything to enjoy about this episode, because there isn’t any, even the animation seems lacking and phoned in
-1: What is with these no name supervillains? There’s so many Spider-Man villains they haven’t even touched why do they feel they have to make up their own?
