The Superhero Show Show #387

An Introduction to Japanese Spider-Man

The Taste Buds FINALLY dive into Toei’s Spider-Man show!

Six months after Marvel 616 covered it, and six years after the start of the podcast, the Taste Buds are finally stepping up and covering the golden goose, Toei’s Supaidaman! Beginning with the first four episodes, including the legendary origin story, Cassie and the Boyz, along with Unnatural 20’s Katelynn, compare and contrast Peter to Takuya, and analyze every detail of every giant-on-giant battle. What similarities remain between the two Spider-Men? What are the differences? And why was Takuya not in Spider-Man: Into the Spiderverse?

There’s also time to hand out a Shushie, and this week it’s Funniest Character. Because of the rise of funny superhero shows, neither Deke from Agents of SHIELD, nor Nate Heywood from Legends of Tomorrow are nominated. Which funny people are ready to stand up and take their place?

Finally, the Taste Buds conclude their celebration of the second season of X-Men: The Animated Series by running down all of the weekly awards they gave out through the season. Every GASP moment. Every 90’s moment. Every battle every power every loser. It’s all here on an all-new, all-different episode of The Superhero Show Show!
