Reality of the 1980s cartoons Spider-Man, Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, and The Incredible Hulk. [1]

Two comic book one-shots were adapted from these cartoons Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends #1 and Incredible Hulk versus Quasimodo #1 were based on the episodes "Triumph of the Green Goblin" and "When Monsters Meet".



  • The Spider-Man: Back in Black Handbook identified the universe of Amazing Friends by its two incarnations of Videoman.
  • Both Spider-Man cartoons aired around the same time. Perhaps the strongest hint they were the same reality occurred during the Amazing Friends episode "The Prison Plot". Peter Parker has a flashback of a previous encounter he had (as Spider-Man) with Magneto which is actually taken from the episode "When Magneto Speaks, People Listen" from the other series.
  • Though Spider-Man was actually made before Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends, the two cartoons initially aired around the same time; Because of this, some characters' chronological debuts are out of order, including those of Captain America, Thor, Namor, Kraven, the Kingpin, Chameleon, and the Green Goblin.
