In episode 5, we had our first listener request of the season: Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends as suggested by our friends James and Lucille. Regular listeners know we can talk about all sorts of stuff when it comes to the cartoons, and this episode is no exception as we discuss "The X-Men Adventure." We learn about the Danger Room, about Firestar's background, and a little something about the bittersweet combination of love and attempted assassination by a cyborg.
Anonymous Batty Insider says: "The episode they talk about really shows the class Spider-Man has because while he does give some tender words to Firestar, he gives much of the spotlight to her and to the X-Men. In fact, the focus on so many other lesser-seen characters may hurt Spidey's Batty chances."
