  • Notes

    • A part of this episode takes its cue from one of the early Spider-Man issues that features Doc Ock. Spider-Man has a cold when he battles Doc Ock and is easily defeated and unmasked. Similarly this happens here, and the reaction is that Peter Parker can't be Spider-Man because he didn't put up too much of a fight.

      This is also borrowed from the first Amazing Spider-Man Annual, which introduced the Sinister Six. In its story, Peter had his powers phasing in and out, too, over the course of some of his battles with the Six. In a story element that would be mirrored in the movie Spider-Man 2, as well, it turns out his weakening powers were apparently all based on Pete's deep seated guilt and insecurities.
