So yesterday I was watching some reruns of the Spider-man animated t.v. show from the 90's when I saw something I hadn't noticed before, the I watched some episodes of Spectacular Spider-man and Ultimate Spider-man and I noticed it again! What did I notice that these shows had in common? Simple : They all downplayed his strength and speed (especially the one from the 90's). Can anyone tell me why they decided to downplay some pretty important powers?
