Trivia: Around the same time this show was airing, James Cameron was in the midst of developing a Spider-Man film which would have featured Sandman and Electro as the villains. Due to this plan, Sandman never appeared on this show despite being a prominent member of Spidey's rogue's gallery. Electro eventually made an appearance in the show's final season once it was determined that Cameron's film would never come to fruition, though the Electro that appeared on this show was a bastardized version of his comics counterpart.

Spider Wars, Chapter 1: I Really, Really Hate Clones - S5-E12

Trivia: After the Scarlet Spider tells Spider-Man the convoluted details of his reality and how he isn't sure whether he is a clone of the Spider-Man of his own reality or vice versa, Spider-Man responds by saying it all sounds like a bad comic book plot. This is a reference to the Spider-Man comics that featured a similar plotline and was much derided by fans.

Neogenic Nightmare Chapter 9: Blade the Vampire Hunter - S2-E11

Trivia: This episode was somewhat of a blueprint for the film "Blade." In the original comics, Blade was a regular human being that was immune to vampire bites. In this episode, he is a half-vampire with all of their strengths and none of their weaknesses, except for the thirst, which he keeps at bay with a serum. These traits carried over into the film. The character of Abraham Whistler also did not originally have a comic book counterpart, he originated in this episode.

Revealing mistake: When Mary Jane and the other servants of Baron Mordo are flying through the city, they literally disappear into thin air. Probably a problem with rendering the 2D animation within the 3D animation. (00:01:00)
