Spiderman and his friends go up against the Beetle. They are assigned to protect J. Jonah Jameson from the Beetle by going after him. Spidey also has to protect Mary Jane too when she has a job interview with J. Jonah Jameson. The Beetle has his early runs with Spiderman in the comics. This time he has to face Spidey and his friends on this alternate show. He easily took out Iron Fist, PowerMan, Nova, and White Tiger at the Bugle by one step at a time with no problems. Then it's up to Spidey to take him on one on one, and he was doing fine for awhile. His heroes friends were conscious and they start teaming up by going against him. You know it's hard to believe when you have five super heroes going against one villain with extra arsenal firepower. The heroes did have a hard time with the Beetle when he uses different type of weapons against them. The Beetle didn't say much in this episode, but he was finally defeated. I gotta say this episode is good in my book.
|I know he has fought both Iron Man and Spider-Man. I think he started as an Iron Man villain though, but I am not entirely sure.|
And you are not the only one annoyed by the lame inner spidey's. They should stop hijacking the brand of spiderman and start up a deadpool show if they want this childish humor and 4th wall stuff.
|Interesting, good to know. The only time I saw beetle was on Ironman season 2 where ironman humorously 'squashed' him with a giant shoe. So it was quite a surprise to see how powerful this version of the beetle was.|
The original Beetle was a dude and the second one was a female and they both were that powerful. However, in the year 2000 and later, the Beetle's power was watered down somewhat and the character was beaten up rather easily by most superheroes including Captain America and the Black Widow as a poster here mentioned.
Eventually, the original Beetle became a good guy, taking on the codename "Mach-I" ("Mach V" after several upgrades).
