Episode Summary

Sins of the Fathers (8): The Ultimate Slayer
Worried that Kingpin is going to eliminate him after the botched framing of Peter Parker, Alistair Smythe arranges a meeting with Spider-Man to give him information about Kingpin. However, when Spidey arrives, he discovers Smythe has been turned into a cyborg. Part man, part machine, he is now the ultimate spider-slayer! However, when his programming malfunctions, he goes after the man he feels responsible for his father's death...Norman Osborn! Peter must fight a crazed Smythe, as well as his feelings when he discovers Mary Jane, the woman he loves, and Harry, his best friend, are engaged!

    • QUOTES (8)

      • Alistair Smythe: (after finding Spencer Smythe) Father! It's Alistair, father, your son.

      • Spider-Man: Smythe, listen to me! I can help you find your father.
        Alistair Smythe: My father?
        Kingpin: Alistair, he's lying!
        Spider-Man: I'll show you who's lying!
        Kingpin: Spider-Man!
        (Spider-Man shows Spencer Smythe to Alistair Smythe)
        Alistair Smythe: My father lives?
        Spider-Man: The Kingpin is holding your father into cryogenic suspension. Five floors down.

      • Norman Osborn: (after Kingpin tells him about how Spencer Smythe survived) That's unbelievable. Where is Spencer Smythe now?
        Kingpin: In the same cryogenic unit that he was always been occupied. In this building, five floors down.

      • Norman Osborn: Fisk, what did you do to Smythe?
        Kingpin: A missteping further of science. I believe he held you responsible for his father's disappearance.
        Norman Osborn: Me? It was your men who caused that fire. Smythe should be after your throat not mine. It was your fault he lost his father.
        Kingpin: Ah, but Spencer Smythe is not lost.
        Norman Osborn: What?

      • Spider-Man: (About Alistair's new hover-chair) Looks like Smythe got a good deal on his trade-in!

      • Spider-Man: He's even more agile than I am!

      • Kingpin: How ironic, Spencer Smythe loved robots...and now, his son is a cyborg.

      • Madame Web: Please get off the floor. I just dusted it for cobwebs.
        Spider-Man: Madame Web! Not her again! I'd almost rather be back facing Smythe!
