* SuperpoweredEvilSide: The Green Goblin. And naturally, with the addition of the alien symbiote, Spider-Man's getting his very own. At first, it simply made him slightly more ruthless and convinced him to lie to protect it. But apparently, it took over completely during his second confrontation with the Sinister Six, given that he doesn't remember the battle afterwards, he didn't make a single quip during it, and he nearly killed Doc Ock before Captain Stacy told him not to.

The Green Goblin. And naturally, Goblin appears to be this for Harry. Subverted when it turns out [[spoiler: Norman has been the Goblin all along, and he claims to have been in total control of his actions. Goblin's wacky personality was presumably just another part of the disguise.]]

* AbortedArc: Due to the show's sudden cancellation, many questions were left unanswered:
** The Season Two finale had [[spoiler:Norman Osborn]] surviving his fight with Spider-Man and escaping the country, as well as having Gwen be forced to stay with Harry out of pity leaving more romantic tension to be resolved later. There was also the Miles Warren angle, likely setting up an adaptation of ComicBook/TheCloneSaga. There's also the symbiote still being at large.
** To a lesser extent there was also Norman Osborn's/[[spoiler: The Chameleon's]] phone conversation with a "Gargan." Clearly foreshadowing Scorpion. Not to mention if Spider-Man and Black Cat would ever reconcile after their last meeting ended on a bitter note.

** Green represents danger: many of the villains dress in green (And the main villain even has "Green" in his name), even down to Doc Ock wearing green goggles, and the Osborns all wear green, while Oscorp is largely lit with green light. Colonel Jupiter has a green and yellow costume, denoting him as an apparent ally who becomes an enemy.

* LoveDodecahedron: The dynamics of the Midtown high group are enormously complicated, but succinctly - Gwen and Liz both like Peter, Peter likes Gwen & Liz and also MJ, MJ flirts with Flash but also comes to really like Mark Allen, Liz has lingering feelings for ex-boyfriend Flash, who finds MJ attractive but then focusses on Sha-Shan, Gwen dates Harry, who previously dated Glory, who left him somewhat inexplicably for Kenny, and I'm sure there are others in there.

Norman doesn't care about Harry, but is proud of Peter and wants Peter to think of him like a father. Peter is creeped out by Norman and wants nothing to do with him, but doesn't want to (further) alienate his friend Harry.

** Mary-Jane Watson's physical appearance and personality as an aloof but genuinely warm and loyal friend for both Peter and Gwen were how she was originally conceived in the comics. Likewise, for being the only friend in Peter's circle who doesn't have baggage and is more or less on good terms with everyone. She also doesn't end up very often as a DamselInDistress and [[spoiler:is a hero in her own right when she comes to rescue Gwen from Venom in the finale of Season 1, getting the rest of M-Cube to use the parade float as a giant cushion for her fall]].
