Octopus, Sandman and Rhino - just to name a few. The exciting first season of Victor Cook and Greg Gargoyles Weisman's stellar animated Spider-Man series is included, uncut, in this two-disc set. Spectacular , which follows both the high-energy adventures of the web-slinger and the social struggles of his alter ego, teenage Peter Parker, is perhaps the most satisfying television adaptation of the legendary Marvel Comics series to date; Weisman and his team remain equally faithful to the high-flying action and the personal dramas in Peter's out-of-costume world. And with only a few changes most notably to the character of Peter's secret crush, Gwen Stacy, and the identity of the villainous Big Man , they've hewed very closely to the source material, right down to minor characters and second-string villains the Enforcers, anyone?

The character's appearance in the episode draws on his traditional comic book style, though designer Victor Cook emphasized the color green and removed the character's customary star-shaped mask. His voice actor, Crispin Freeman , sought to reflect the character's declining sanity in his vocal style.
