The Superhero Pantheon – Spider-Man ’94: Episodes 53-55

‘The Wedding’, ‘Six Forgotten Warriors’ & ‘Unclaimed Legacy’

Jerome and Brian begin their discussion of the final season of the mid-90s Spider-Man animated series.

Look, things are weird but at least there’s no fairy tale episode. Peter Parker’s parents might be Russian spies. Also, there’s two episodes featuring Scorpion. Kingpin is a highlight at least.

‘The Lizard King’ & ‘The Prowler’

On the 99th episode of Superhero Pantheon for The Reel World, Jerome and Brian discuss a disappointing finish to season four.

Bye Felicia! Sadly, Felicia Hardy/Black Cat is leaving the show, but not before being featured in a banger of an episode. An overall excellent slate of episodes this week as Jerome and Brian near the end of the fourth season.

The Superhero Pantheon – Spider-Man ’94: Episodes 45-47

‘The Return of Kraven’, ‘Partners’ & ‘The Awakening’

Jerome and Brian discuss what may be the most confusing set of episodes yet, but at least there’s some romance to keep everyone entertained. Sadly, like with live action, Morbius ruins everything (and no Morbin times jokes were made this week nor will they be made next week).

The Superhero Pantheon – Spider-Man ’94: Episodes 40-41

‘Goblin War!’ & ‘Turning Point’

Jerome and Brian finish up their look at the third season of the mid-90s Spider-man with two very strong episodes. All that can be said is Madame Web stinks. Listen to this episode for more on why.

The Superhero Pantheon – Spider-Man ’94: Episodes 37-39

‘Venom Returns’, ‘Carnage’ & ‘The Spot’

Jerome and Brian break down the CARNAGE of these episodes. Yes, it’s a Carnage and Venom team-up. Plus, there’s War Machine and Iron Man.

The Superhero Pantheon – Spider-Man ’94: Episodes 34-36

‘The Man Without Fear’, ‘The Ultimate Slayer’ & ‘Tombstone’

‘Enter the Punisher’, ‘Duel of the Hunters’ & Blade, the Vampire Hunter’

Jerome and Brian discuss more adventures in the Neogenic Nightmare season of Spider-man.

This week, Spider-Man becomes a Man-Spider as we get more horror imagery. We also get appearances from a more techy version of Punisher and a less cool version of Blade. No one ice skating uphill sadly.
