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!
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

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!
