Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends s1e4: Sunfire

Air Date: October 3, 1981

Rating: 2/10

Sunfire, a mutant with powers identical to those of Firestar’s, comes in with his uncle from Japan for reasons his evil uncle is hiding from him. Can Spider-Man and Iceman help Starfire to come to her senses before it’s too late?

Okay, just so everyone knows, I’m going by the order their presented on Disney+ but I’m going to put the “correct” episode number found on IMdb as I watch them. I don’t know why anything is out of order anyway or what’s more correct, or anything.

This was a decent episode, though a tad boring for most of it. I think it was more along the lines of having a romantic episode, even though Firestar has dated both Spider-Man and Iceman out of costume in previous episodes, she’s much more interested in this fire guy because they share the same powers? I guess with that kind of logic it’s no wonder she doesn’t expect that Sunfire is secretly working for his evil uncle until it’s too late.

I don’t know if this show is really for me after this one. I mean, it’s meant for someone 20-30 years younger than me, so, it’s not really for me anyway. But, for an adult who likes kid’s cartoons, this one felt all over the place and I’d recommend either the other Spider-Man show from the same era, or Spider-Woman even over this and what I’ve seen so far…

SCORING:

+3: Just a strange episode in general with inconsistent pacing and plotlines that I’m not sure I would recommend to anyone, not even kids

-1: It’s okay Farestar, date as many people as possible, it’s the 80s!
