Product Description

Get ready for more spine-tingling excitement as America's favorite Super Hero(TM) battles Doctor Octopus(TM) and a host of his most famous foes in these thrilling animated adventures. Doctor Octavius was a brilliant scientist working on a revolutionary new invention until a laboratory accident fused a set of mechanical arms to his body and turned him into the dreaded supervillain Doctor Octopus. Now Doc Ock(TM) seeks his revenge on those who did him wrong, and there are only two men who can put an end to his plan of destruction -- Spider-Man(TM) or his secret alter-ego, Peter Parker!

Amazon.com

Scientist turned supervillain Dr. Octopus is one of Spider-Man's longest-running foes, and the pair face off in four action-packed animated episodes on this DVD. All four episodes are taken from Spider-Man: The Animated Series (1994-98), though Doc Ock is only front-and-center for the first episode (culled from the debut season), which does a fine job of re-imagining his origins. The episode also features Felicia Hardy, a.k.a. the Black Cat; she figures prominently in the other three episodes, while Ock takes a supporting role before disappearing altogether in the final one. His absence is disconcerting, given the prominence of his name in the DVD title, and the three episodes, pulled from season 4's lengthy story arc, seem disjointed when viewed outside of the full storyline. But the action is plentiful, the stories are mostly true to the Spidey universe, and true believers will appreciate the parade of Marvel characters on display, including the Kingpin, the Lizard, the Vulture, and even a cameo from Captain America. Supplemental features include two episodes from the 1967-70 animated Spider-Man series, one featuring Doc Ock; Spidey co-creator Stan Lee introduces each episode and sounds off on a variety of related subjects in the interview featurette "Stan Lee's Soapbox"; and there's a wealth of previews for future Marvel/Buena Vista DVD titles, including The Venom Saga. --Paul Gaita

Ok, I will admit that the Spider-man Animated Series was one of the best modern kids' cartoon shows. I was certainly a fan. However, the way they are releasing the DVDs is really crappy. Spider-Man's seasons averaged about 13 episodes. Normally, a thirteen-episode season on DVD would be about 20 bucks. Instead we are getting four episodes for our twenty bucks. Also, the best part of Spider-Man was the ongoing storylines. Here the episodes are taken out of the full context. In short, you can buy this if you really like the Spider-Man show. But otherwise keep your money, because you're kinda being ripped off.

This isn't as good as the last 2 I reviewed, but it's better than The Ultimate Villain Showdown.

4. Doctor Octopus: Armed & Dangerous: When Peter arrives for a date with Felicia Hardy, she is kidnapped by corrupt scientist Doctor Octopus, in order to force her mother to provide him with ransom money in which she promised to fund his experiments. The worst episode of season 1 made it to DVD. It's not bad it just needed a LOT of polishing. B-

43. The Cat: Doctor Octopus attempts to blackmail Anastasia Hardy into paying him ransom money in order to fund his dangerous experiments, by threatening to reveal that Felicia's father was the crook known as "The Cat". This is much better. A

44. The Black Cat: The Kingpin blackmails John Hardesky into revealing a secret super-soldier formula by making threats against Felicia. After Hardesky reveals his secrets, Landon is able to recreate and improve the formula for the crime lord. Kingpin uses the serum to transform Felicia into a "black cat", and forces her to carry out his crimes until he can create more serum. A good continuation. A

46. Partners: Alistair Smythe, currently working as Silvermane's top scientist, kidnaps the Black Cat. He then bribes Spider-Man into capturing either the Scorpion or the Vulture, whom both have unique DNA samples which are essential for Silvermane if he is to restore adulthood, in exchange for her release. A good episode, but why was this on here? Doc Ock isn't in it! Ah well, I'll take what I can get so I shouldn't complain. A-

A good compilation, but they should have used the first 2 episodes of season 2, the Insidious Six 2-parter, which is probably my favorite episode with Doc Ock in it as a main villain.

Understand right off that this rating is not for the quality of the cartoon, which I really enjoy, but for the way they market these animated TV shows. From 1994 to 1998 this Spider–Man series (aka Spider–Man: The Animated Series) produced 65 episodes for the Fox Kids Network. As I said, the show is great and there are several small collections from this series available, but why can’t Buena Vista / Disney just offer to us fans the complete run?

I won't go in to too much detail about this wonderful DVD, save to say I was enthralled! The "Partners In Danger" story arc was more than satisfying and added an element that solidified the animated series.

Felecia Hardy/Black Cat! Wow! When the King Pin kidnapped Felicia's father and then transferred the super soldier formula (Her Father The Cat Had Memorized In 1943) into her, thinking he could control her actions, he made a big mistake!! Not only did Felicia become strong, powerful and agile, but she could control the metamorphosis of her physical countenance! Wow! The Black Cat was born! And this Black Cat would use her nine lives to bite and scratch the King Pin and seduce the Spiderman; with her natural attraction to Spiderman, it was only a matter of time before the two of them became involved. The sexual tension between the two was evident from the moment Black Cat intentionally allows herself to be discovered by a web swinging Spidey as she is robbing a jewelry store! She promptly knocks him out and then plants a kiss on his cheek (Every Guy's Dream) that he won't discover until Robbie points it out to him hours later after he's changed back to Peter Parker.

This DVD, like the others: Spiderman: The Ultimate Villain Showdown; Spiderman: The Return of the Green Goblin; Dare Devil vs Spiderman have DVD extras that include Stan Lee giving us his insights into characters and events. Absolutely perfect! The DVD could not have been better produced. Buy it and you won't be disappointed!

I would have given 4 or 5 stars if this were an entire season but it's only 4 episodes. Buy them if you feel you can't wait for this series to be released in its entirety but otherwise I would recommend avoiding these dvd releases and buying The Spectacular Spider-Man Complete Series blu ray instead. I would also recommend avoiding Ultimate Spider-Man at all costs. The show, not the comic. The comic is amazing.
