** Swiss Miss was thrown in by Miss Arrow because said "Geek Chorus" member thought she sounded cool.



* CanonForeigner: Swiss Miss.
** And note how she even makes no sense in-universe. Green Goblin's minions are all people he mutated by splicing their DNA. So...she has knife DNA?
*** It's because she's part of TheArtifact. In the original, she was thrown in by Miss Arrow because said "Geek Chorus" member thought she sounded cool.

''Franchise/SpiderMan: Turn Off the Dark'' is a Broadway musical based on the Creator/MarvelComics superhero. Directed by Julie Taymor (director of the Broadway version of ''Disney/TheLionKing'') with the score and lyrics by Bono and the Edge of Music/{{U2}}. As of this writing, it is the single most expensive Broadway musical ever produced, costing about seventy-five million dollars. [[note]] The average budget for a Broadway show is about $2-10 million. ''TOTD'' would've had to have played to nothing but packed houses for two years straight just to break even. [[/note]]

Directed by Julie Taymor (director of the Broadway version of ''Disney/TheLionKing'') with the score and lyrics by Bono and the Edge of Music/{{U2}}. As of this writing, it is the single most expensive Broadway musical ever produced, costing about seventy-five million dollars.

The musical is best known for its very, very TroubledProduction. Several actors were injured during rehearsals and the preview period, falling while performing the show's elaborate aerial stunts, causing many to joke that it should have been called ''Spider-Man: Notify Next of Kin''. The script underwent {{Retool}}ing more than once, and Julie Taymor was [[CreatorKiller fired]], during this time. The whopping one hundred and eighty-two performances before the show officially debuted was the longest preview period in Broadway history. This production closed in January 2014; while it looks to be one of the biggest flops in Broadway history with its backers looking at losses of $60 million, the producers intend to stage it elsewhere in years to come.

Storywise, the final product is largely based on the first two Creator/SamRaimi [[Film/SpiderManTrilogy films]], with the [[ClassicalMythology myth of Arachne]] and the ''ComicBook/MaximumCarnage'' [[VillainTeamUp story arc]] added into the mix.
