eh... worst? absolutely not... 2nd best show? yes Spectacular is definitely the best.. but the 90s series is still better than everything else.. and a good chunk of the stories (like Xmen) are adaptations of the book.redkomic wrote: ↑Tue Jan 18, 2022 5:13 pmYes if you actually watch the show you would see it's one of the worst Adaptation of Spider-man yet. (Note: I absolutely love the show but there are some stuff that makes no sense).Mark_Bowen wrote: ↑Tue Jan 18, 2022 2:56 pmredkomic wrote: ↑Tue Jan 18, 2022 1:02 amIm think scorpion will just be a repaint non-shiny one without the green mask (even though the figure we got is accurate). I mean seriously why do people care so much about the animated look? I grew up with the cartoon as well but I don't think we should get that many figures from it.
I'd chalk it up to some people being more nostalgic than others. I'm like you, I grew up with SMtAS—in fact, it might have been my first exposure to my Spidey as a character—but I could not care less about getting figures for it. Where others see a beloved a childhood favorite, I see a pretty bad looking cartoon where everyone's outfits look terrible (poor Mary Jane!), the police carried ray guns, and nobody was ever allowed to throw a punch so Venom was constantly tossing Spider-Man.
Because this is the internet, I should probably clarify that my criticisms are solely of the show, not of the people who like and want to see figures made from it. I'm not any more “right” for my lack of nostalgia than they are for their surplus of it.
That all said, should they ever make a Mintsterio or Cyanisher, I might be persuaded into buying them just for the novelty of having such terrible looks.
Villains origins and purpose where changed. Chameleon for example was a russian, mute spy with a gizmo belt instead but being a Russian actor that uses masks.
There was also the fact that no character was allowed to wear Black because the Execs at Fox thought the color was too evil.
There the no guns policy or no punching. In a superhero show, no was allowed hit eachother?
People give out about all the changes the MCU makes but these were even worse.
If you want to look at bad spidey cartoons, look at everything that came before the 90s series and everything that came after spectacular. Now THOSE are pretty terrible in comparison.
