    Default Toei Spider-Man villains

    I see a lot of people talk about Japanese Spider-Man but never about his villains. Whats your opinion of them?


    The reason I ask is because Id love for them to make an appearance if he does.

    What's there to talk about really? It was just your typical Super Sentai style monsters of the week. He didn't have recurring enemies like in the comics.

    His main enemies were Professor Monster and Amazoness, the latter of whom ran a newspaper in her human disguise to smear Toei Spider-Man's reputation a la J. Jonah Jameson with the American Spider-Man. The Iron Cross Army led by Professor Monster and Amazoness also sustained and funded itself through relatively mundane criminal activity on Earth, not just sending monsters to wreak havoc, so Toei Spider-Man would end up working with Interpol to stop them. That much, I recall from what I've seen, heard, and read of Toei Spider-Man --- which really ought to get a relaunch of some kind given Marvel's relationship with Toei. Maybe if there's enough positive response to his appearance in Into the Spider-Verse 2?
    The spider is always on the hunt.

    So what?

    Most villains only become recurring when they become popular.

    I believe the true question, would be if any of you actually watched the series, presuming it has not, at least in my knowledge, had any American broadcasting, yet.
