In the 90’s we got a tri-fecta of awesome cartoon superheroes with Batman: the animated series and X-Men the animated series , concluding with Spider-man’s turn. The show told the tales of Peter Parker taking on villains like Shocker, Scorpion, Rhino, Doc Ock, as well as favorites Green Goblin and Venom as well as a huge host of others. What made this show really cool was how much of Marvel it opened up to a lot of us as kids with appearances from Blade, Daredevil, Punisher, Dr. Strange, War Machine, Captain America, the Fantastic Four, and the damn X men just to name a few. Like X men, there are a lot of sagas that are pretty well done but one huge flaw I have is this show is safe as hell. There isn’t any real violence or grit but it’s still enjoyable and worth checking it out. May the gaming gods bring you glory.
