  • My entry into the series.

    I was an in my teens in the 90s and thus my exposure to the character from Marvel Comics was Spider-Man The Animated Series, X-Men, The Incredible Hulk (1996) and The Marvel Action Hour (Fantastic Four and Iron Man). Then one time when I went to K Mart with my mom I stumbled onto a VHS copy of this very episode.

    Being a typical 80s cartoon of course the episode wasn't sophisticated, but the character interaction and dialogue made it enjoyable. I definitely picked up on the Spider-Man/Firestar relationship, and thought moments between them were well done.

    While The X-Men characters weren't as deep as the animated series, you did get some of the aspects of their characters (Nightcrawler being a joker, Storm's claustrophboia, Thunderbird's temper despite being toned down from the comics and Kitty Pride's interest in Colossus).

    Glad I bought the tape.
