Review:

Spider-Man takes on Dr. Octopus, the Kingpin, and the Green Goblin, and takes us on a flashback trip to his origins for good measure, in this four-episode arc from the third season of the 1990s animated series. These web-slinging moral tales have none of Batman's sleek style, and the breathless pacing doesn't quite make up for the awkward animation and pedestrian writing, but the episodes are bright, busy, and action packed. --Sean Axmaker

Additional Features:

The real treat of this DVD lies in the supplements, especially The Origins of Spiderman from the original 1967 series, which spices a limited animation style with a great theme song, trippy graphics, a jazzy score, and dark colors that recall the deep inks from an old comic book page. Also check out the "Rogues Dossier," an interactive guide to Spidey's villains with statistics, trivia, and video clips, and video interviews with Spiderman creator Stan "the Man" Lee. --Sean Axmaker
