Spider-Man: The Animated Series vs. Freakazoid
Two heroes face off in the final match of the 2nd round! Will Spider-Man swing into the Quarter-Finals or will Freakazoid take down the Fox Kids series and join round 3?!
Spider-Man | Premiered: November 19th, 1994
The series focuses on Spider-Man and his alter ego Peter Parker during his college years at Empire State University. Peter has already gained his superpowers and is a part-time freelance photographer for the Daily Bugle. The show features most of Spider-Man's classic villains, including the Kingpin, the Green Goblin, and Venom. Over the course of the series the single Peter contends with the romantic love interests of Mary Jane Watson, Gwen Stacy, Felicia Hardy and her alter ego, the Black Cat. The show also features appearances from various other Marvel superheroes; including the X-Men, the Fantastic Four, Iron Man, Daredevil, Blade, Doctor Strange, the Punisher and Captain America. A large number of storylines and events from the comics are loosely adapted in the series.
Freakazoid | Premiered: September 9th, 1995
The show's title character is the superhero alter ego of geeky 17-year-old Dexter Douglas. Dexter gained his abilities from a computer bug and being absorbed into his computer and instantly gaining all the information on the Internet. Bruce Timm, best known as a major principal of the DC animated universe, originally intended it to be a straightforward superhero action-adventure cartoon with comic overtones, but executive producer Steven Spielberg asked series producer and writer Tom Ruegger and the Animaniacs team to turn Freakazoid! into a flat-out comedy.
