  • Spider-Man, Firestar and Iceman battle the Green Goblin who is plotting to turn the residents of New York City into goblins.

    A decent pilot for the popular 1980s animated series. For its day, the animation, artwork, voice acting and script are all pretty good. Having various college students dress up as various other Marvel Comics superheros was a nice touch and forwarded the various cameo/special guest star apperances.

    Then and now, I disliked the idea of the Green Goblin being an actual Goblin, as opposed to a crazy man in a costume. I understand that certain things will change when moving from one form of media to the next, especially for children's cartoon but the 1960s animated Green Goblin seemed closer to the comics then this 1980s version. Overally, a solid episode that laid the foundation for a pretty cool superhero series.
