Spider-Man

THE ORIGINAL cartoon of the “webbed wonder” of comic fame boasted the Peter Parker “bitten by radioactive spider”/web-spraying wristy things/Aunt May set up, besides introducing that BATMAN-rivalling theme song to kids the world over. Then in 1982 came Spider-man And His Amazing Friends, with that tell-tale adjective giving the lie to this creaky old franchise revival, this time with the errant Parker living in some cool Breakfast Club-type ’80s teen pad with Bobby “Iceman” Drake (who surfed about on a self-generating pavement of ice) and Anjelica “Firestar” Jones.
