* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The adaptation of ''Secret Wars'' was originally going to feature a number of additional characters, most notably Mister Sinister. These were later scrapped for numerous reasons -- namely costs since Sinister's voice actor, Chris Britton, is Canadian-based (the cast of the ''X-Men'' series had previously been flown to LA from Canada for their appearance in the crossover, which proved expensive. Storm got to appear because she's a case of TheOtherDarrin, and her ''former'' voice actress was in LA.) And The Lizard's spot was originally made for the Hulk, but he had a series on UPN, so he couldn't be there.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: UnintentionalPeriodPiece: Besides the odd reference to 90s pop culture, the Man-Spider arc blatantly dates itself to pre-2001 when it turns Man-Spider's lair is under the World Trade Centre parking garage.

Added DiffLines:

** John Vernon plays Comicbook/DoctorStrange on here while Creator/MauriceLaMarche plays the character in ''WesternAnimation/TheIncredibleHulk''(though this is likely because Vernon was the voice of Thunderbolt Ross in the latter series).

Added DiffLines:

* RecycledScript: "The Spot" and "Goblin War" come one after another, and they both have the ''exact'' same plot beats. A villain is using a portal device to commit robberies. The Kingpin gets involved somehow. Felicia has a scene where she flirts with Spider-Man [[YourCheatingHeart despite being engaged]], to which he brushes her off, leaving her sad. Harry has a scene where he acts petulant toward Peter about how he "stole" Mary Jane from him. Spider-Man ends up at Crime Central where the Kingpin almost squeezes him to death. Of the two episodes, "Goblin War" is the more important due to the re-emergence of the Green Goblin and the Hobgoblin's identity being revealed, so one could almost skip "The Spot" entirely and not miss much.

* TheOriginalDarrin:
** Within the '90s Marvel cartoons, War Machine fall under this, with the character going back to his first voice on ''WesternAnimation/IronMan'' James Avery.
** While TheOtherDarrin within this series, similarly during the "Secret Wars" arc, Storm plays around with this as she went from her second ''WesternAnimation/XMen'' voice actress Alison Sealy-Smith (who voiced the character during the X-Men's guest appearance) to her original voice actress, Iona Morris.

* MissingEpisode: Following the 9/11 attacks, Creator/ABCFamily pulled "Shriek of the Vulture" and "The Final Nightmare" (both of which featured a burning skyscraper) from the rerun schedule. These two episodes concluded the Neogenic Nightmare arc and led into Season 3's "Doctor Strange", so you can imagine how displeased fans were. It wasn't until the end of ''2007'', though, that this changed. ToonDisney aired the two episodes as a part of an all-series New Year's Eve/Day marathon. As long as the show has been airing, the two episodes have been rerun regularly ever since.
