Does anyone know why Spider-Man is not in this show? They made a couple of jokes at his expense in the most recent episode that make me wonder even more, such as:
Mayor: "I heard about this one guy that got special powers when he was bitten by a radioactive bug."
Dr. Strange: "oh, come on, you just made that up."
Wolverine: "The mayor has great responsibilities."
Mayor: "And with great responsibilities comes great power, and uh... vice versa."
There is a Superhero Squad toy of Spider-Man, and he appears in the video game, so why not the show? I was thinking that maybe Columbia Pictures has some kind of exclusivity deal with the movies that doesn't allow Spidey to appear in any other movies or shows, but if that were the case then "The Spectacular Spider-Man" cartoon couldn't have been made so... I don't know. Is it just some sort of licensing issue or is there another reason for him not to appear at all?
