This is probably one of the most fascinating Ralph Bakshi-directed episodes.
Carol, the mysterious girl who sets of Peter's spider-sense is one of, if not the first appearances of a sort of female counterpart to Spider-Man. Granted, it's an obvious stretch, but the idea seems to have first been tried out here. It's just a pity Carol didn't have her own spider-costume.
That she's from yet another strange alien race is no real surprise by this point, but the fact that they're somewhat similar to Spider-Man himself at least lends some sort of viable relationship with Spider-Man's world.
With a whole bunch of other spider-men to contend with, at least Spider-Man has some interesting challenges to overcome, considering they all have the same powers.
