Review:This is where the Neogenic Nightmare started dragging. The episode started off well enough, we knew what the tablet could do, and we knew who wanted it and we saw Spider-Man stopping them, specifically Hammerhead, getting it. This episode is arguably most noteable for Barnes classic delivary when he is trapped in the fish shredder. Barnes had great comic timing throughout this show, and his reaction when Spidey smelt the fish was a classic.
Soon afterwards, once Smythe got a hold of the Tablet, the whole story became a mess. Silvermane kidnapping Margaret Conners and Spider-Man fighting The Lizard wasn’t exactly needed. It soon became a huge case of everyone kidnapping everyone to the point where I really didn't care anymore. This episode introduced Tombstone, as Silvermane's lackey but other than that, its not up to much. At least it was better than part 2. The ending, with Tombstone's "I don't breath" was excellent, only, as soon as part two started he up and left. A dull way to conclude a cool cliffhanger.
It was a trying arc, one which I personally couldn’t wait to end. Silvermane's quest for his youth back was pretty dull, and the supporting cast weren’t up to much. It was nice seeing Vanessa Fisk, but as said aboveit started out well and fell from there.
