Me again, with just a few more Spidey questions:
1) Where/when/how did Tombstone get powers? I'm assuming he has powers (enhanced strength, durability, reflexes) (if this is Season 3/No comment territory, I understand).
2) In "Identity Crisis", where did Flash get a Spider-Man costume? How did he put it on with a toe-to-thigh cast?
3) How much does the average Mysterio machine cost? More specifically, how much money does Spidey burn through every time he destroys a robot or a homonculus?
4) How do you come up with story ideas? Is it like "It would be cool if..." or is it more like "This villain should show up" or "This facet of Peter/Spidey's life should be established"? Or does it vary?
5) Does popular television personality/presidential candidate Stephen Colbert exist in the universe of Spectacular Spidey?
1. No comment.
2a. At a costume shop. 2b. With difficulty and some ripping.
3. No idea.
4. It varies, but we build it. Most ideas are inspired by the source material and/or come out of character.
5. Is he public domain?
MI PREGUNTA ES LA SIGUENTE: HUBIERA SIDO POSIBLE QUE GOLIATH SE TRANSFORMARA EN HUMANO PARA ASI CASARSE CON ELISA Y ASI HACERSE REALIDAD SU SUEÃ'O COMO EN EL CAPITULO "PODRIA SER REALIDAD"? GRACIAS
My high school Spanish is pretty rusty...
"My question is the [?]: [??] posible that Goliath will be transformed to human for [??] with Elisa and [??] reality... ugh, I give up.
I'm afraid I can't be sure enough of your question to answer it well...
In a previous response you wrote, "I like to think we executed [The Spectacular Spider-Man Animated Series] well, but let's face it -- ANY Spidey show would do pretty well just by virtue of it being Spidey. I can't exactly take credit for the character's popularity. All I can do is strive to do him justice. It's for others to judge if we succeeded, though we succeeded well enough to satisfy me. I'm biased, of course, but my standards are pretty high."
In a very brief conversation I once had with Tom Defalco at a convention this year, he told me that it was his opinion that writers' particular runs with an established character come and go, but what the job of each writer is, regardless of the individual direction he or she wishes to take things, is to fully inhabit the character. I think this is in keeping with what you said. I just want you to know, my standards are pretty high as well and I think your show, as a portrayal of Mr. Peter Benjamin Parker, is a success no matter what the future holds.
Thanks. I appreciate it.
When the crimelords where fighting and attempting to call for backup why did Tombstone try calling for his Blackie? I mean Doc Ock called for Kraven and Silvermane tried to call Sable, why would he call a simple Bookie?
Blackie has many skills, including coordination of "talent".
Why do you only have story arks for The Spectacular Spider-Man and not single episodes.
We have both.
Why is it that the lost footage (like Shocker's escape at the end of "Group Therapy") isn't being reinserted on the season sets?
I don't know.
Hello Greg, I would like to say The Spectacular Spiderman is one of the most entertaining shows I have ever seen. The best Spiderman adaptation ever. (including the movies) I do have a few questions though...
1.) In Shear Strength Morris Bench made a cameo, not as Hydro-Man, so I was thinking he might be in Season 3 or something, but there was a question that stated something about the sinister syndicate and you said most of those villains aren't even spiderman villains. So I was wondering is Hydro Man declared a Spiderman villain or someone like fantastic four.
2. Just to clear things up, The correct answers to these questions are, You do like Carnage, Shocker is Montana on a creative decision, Kingpin is Daredevil's villain so you can't use him, and this is the best show ever, right.
3. Why did you make gwen well like me, ya know a geek. I actually prefer her this way, she still is beautiful and more likeable than someone who is completely perfect in every way shape or form.
4. Did you say Norman's body was found? How, because that Mr. Roman dude was at the airport unless he cloned himself. P.S not a big fan of the clone saga too confusing.
That's it basically, So thank you for Spectacular Spiderman and hope the following seasons are as great as the first two.
1. Hydro-Man is a Spidey villain.
2. Yes, to the first three. As to the fourth, I'll leave that to others to decide. But I am quite fond of it.
3. I've answered this before, but the short answer is Gwen was ALWAYS a brain. We're just seeing her in high school. For a fuller answer, check the archives.
4. No clones involved in this one. A body was found that was formally identified as Norman's.
One of the things I notice upon rewatching the series is the awesome background music- did the show have a composer, and if so, who?
The series wonderful composers were the Dynamic Music Partners: Lolita Ritmanis, Kristopher Carter and Michael McCuistion.
If the show is not renewed, would that be the end of TSSM, or could you possibly get away with dvd releases?
I can only do what they hire me to do.
Did you know there's actually an online petition to release the rest of the Gargoyles series on DVD? And the comments on Youtube seem to support it. Would you please consider it?
Don't you think I want them released? It's not up to me.
