  • My last review of season 2.

    OK lets get this out of the way,I REALLY don't like OX and Ricohet's skill enhancement suits look,They look stupid,That bugged me.

    Now to the story/plot.

    Tombstone (In person) hires the New Enforcers to rob the federal reserve,much to hammerheads dislike.

    Plus the Midtown high goes on a police ride along,

    (Peter/Sally,Gwen/Liz,Harry/Flash and MJ,Mark.)

    Sally gets her biggest roll ever,But thats not really a good thing.(Better in small doses) We get to see a nicer side to Flash,which was good.

    Also a hint to the Goblin's return (Or is it?).

    Probably the weakest episode over all of season 2,but that is still pretty good.moreless
  • This week, police academy gets to ride-along, and The New Enforcers are in town.

    Shocker is back and has teamed up with Ricochet and Ox to pull a few big heists- namely a billion dollars in gold. I'm a fan of Shocker and it didn't take long for me to adjust to the southern drawl they decided to give him in this series. But Ricochet and Ox lack personality, so this isn't a team I'm eager to spend much more time with.

    Captain Stacy's police class gets to do ride-alongs with actually cops so there was a chance here to do some fun mix-and-matching, with partners. Flash got Harry Osborne, Liz got Gwen, MJ got that guy who likes her, and Peter got the annoying Sally Avril. Most noteworthy was Sally's concern that Parker may have been killed- she's a snob, but she's not a monster, and Flash learning of Harry's "performance enhancing" Goblin Juice during the football season. A nice middle of the road episode.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • This episode's theme song featured Peter Parker, Flash Thompson, Harry Osborne and George Stacy.

    • In the comics, Ricochet was a name Peter Parker used when Spider-Man was accused of murder in the Identity Crisis storyline. Fancy Dan, the Ricochet of this series, uses a suit that gives him abilities similar to a mutant of the same name from a Spider-Man influenced group called "The Slingers."

  • QUOTES (7)

    • George Stacy: There's no body, Sally. Peter...
      Sally Avril: Was blown to bits! Oh great, what am I gonna tell Liz? She looks awful in black!

    • Shocker: (To Ox) Exit door's open. Load 'er up. We'll squash the bug!
      Spider-Man: Squash the bug, squash the bug. Don't you know any other tunes?

    • Spider-Man: Bank heist? Really? Isn't that a bit beneath you?
      Shocker: Nothing wrong with a good heist, if the take's worth our while.
      Spider-Man: Our while? (Spider-Man is attacked by Ricochet and Ox)
      Shocker: Bug, meet the New Enforcers.

    • Tinkerer: So Ox, if Montana is Shocker, and Fancy Dan is Ricochet, what do we...
      Ox: (Firmly) Ox.
      Tinkerer: That works.

    • Jean DeWolff: Look, Sarge, we've been through this. Spider-Man means well... probably, but when he takes the law into his own hands, he goes too far.
      Stan Carter: (Darkly) If you ask me, Spidey hasn't gone far enough.

    • Ox: (In the elevator) Hmm-hm-hm-hmm, hmm-hm-hm-hmm, Spider-Man. Hmm-hm-hm-hmm, hmm-hm-hm-hmm, Spider-Man. (Notices Shocker glaring at him; defending himself) It's catchy!

    • Spider-Man: (After being partnered with Sally Avril) "Stinky Pete?!" Like Puny Parker's not bad enough. At least I had time to shower before the ride-along with the ever-personable Miss Avril. I can't believe I used to have a crush on her.

  • NOTES (0)


    • Spider-Man: What a revoltin' development this is.

      This catchphrase is used by The Thing, a member of Marvel Comics' first superhero family The Fantastic Four.

    • Shocker: Never did like to see a poor, dumb animal suffer.
      Spider-Man: Like, say... Br'er Rabbit?

      Br'er Rabbit is a character in the Uncle Remus stories of the southern United States, who overcomes his enemies through quick wits and trickery, much like Spider-Man.
