Review by Frontier
It was nice to see them use Man-Wolf, especially when his last appearance was in Spider-Man Unlimited of all things, and there was some great action, but the plot wasn't really up to snuff. The crystals and sword went without any explanation, including why they were on the moon and why the crystals induce lycanthropy, and in a better show than this I would assume they would be explained. But I don't see that happening anytime soon.
I love voice actor Nolan North, and he was good as John and Man-Wolf respectively, though I feel his character and his becoming Man-Wolf would've had more impact had he appeared before in Season 1. It certainly would've done Jonah's character wonders.
I don't care how fast Nova is, Spidey and John should have died on that moon. Spidey at least has the excuse that his mask was only cracked, flimsy as it is, while John didn't even have one.
