    • This episode can be seen on "The Spectacular Spider-Man: The Goblin Strikes!" DVD.

    • Doctor Octopus
      Doctor Octopus, aka Doc Ock, made his first appearance in Amazing Spider-Man #3. A shy and timid scientist with a deadbeat father and overprotective mother, Otto Octavius was once a respected nuclear physicist who created mechanical tentacles that were used for dangerous experiments. An explosion of radiation once occured and the four tentacles were forever bonded to his very spine. Driven to madness, he resorted to a life of crime. He has been one of the most well known of villains, having created the first Sinister Six group.

  • ALLUSIONS (2)

    • Marilyn Monroe:

      When Spider-Man uses his webs as a slingshot and rockets past the girl on the balcony, she is seen holding her white dress. This is similar to the way Marilyn Monroe held her dress, most famously in the movie The Seven Year Itch (1955).

    • Spider-Man: Subway to Coney Island, two bucks. Riding turbulance, six. Saving Liz Allan, priceless.
