1The characters in ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManUnlimited''.²²[[foldercontrol]]²²[[folder:Spider-Man]]²!! Spider-Man/Peter Parker²-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/RinoRomano²²Our hero, Peter Parker was once bitten by a radioactive spider and gain the abilities of a spider. After refusing to stop a thief, said thief killed his Uncle Ben, teaching Peter that great power comes with great responsibility and he's vowed to become a superhero.²²At the start of the series, he's blamed by J. Jonah Jameson after Venom and Carnage hijack his son John's shuttle, the ''Solaris I'' on its mission to Counter-Earth. Upon learning that John is still alive, Peter vows to help him and takes the ''Solaris II'' to Counter-Earth.²----²* AdaptationalBadass: Not that Spider-Man wasn't badass before, but this Spider-Man is less of a freestyle jokester and more of a straight fighter thanks to his high-tech suit.²* BackForTheDead: This Peter is killed by Daemos at the beginning of ''ComicBook/SpiderVerse''.[[note]]Dan Slott and Nick Lowe both confirmed this was the Spider-Man from the cartoon.[[/note]]²* BadassCape: The new suit sports a cape similar to the one on [[ComicBook/SpiderMan2099 Miguel O'Hara]].²* CompositeCharacter: He sports a similar buzzcut to [[ComicBook/ScarletSpider Ben Reilly]] and the reddish-brown color and BadassCape of [[ComicBook/SpiderMan2099 Miguel O'Hara]].²* ClearMyName: One of the reasons for going to Counter-Earth in the first place is because Spider-Man was blamed for the actions of Venom and Carnage.²* FakingTheDead: He'd planned on retiring as Spidey as it was presumed that Spider-Man died following a building collapse, but when John's message was transmitted he rethought this.²* ItsAllMyFault: The other reason for his trip is, as usual for Peter, blaming himself for his failure to stop Venom and Carnage in the first place.²* HeroicNeutral: Spider-Man wants nothing to do with the Resistance's battle against the High Evolutionary and only wants to return home, but frequently finds himself dragged into the conflict. ²* HeroWithBadPublicity: Big-time, given Jameson blames him for the shuttle going off-course, a fireman [[HelpMistakenForAttack mistakes Spider-Man pushing him out of the way for an attack]], and his actions on Counter-Earth are frowned upon by the High Evolutionary.²* InvisibilityCloak: A feature of the new suit, though using it for long periods tends to overheat it.²* KleptomaniacHero: It's strongly implied that the nanotech suit was stolen from [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Reed Richards's lab]]. Additionally, he swiped the ''Solaris II'' to get to Counter-Earth.²* MyGreatestFailure: Uncle Ben, though the origin is only seen in the opening credits.²* PoweredArmor: His suit is made up of nanites stolen from Mr. Fantastic and flashes with TronLines whenever he puts it on, but he still manually has to change web cartridges. ²* TransformationHorror: The High Evolutionary hits him with a beam meant to turn him into a Bestial, briefly changing him into Man-Spider.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Supporting Cast]]²!!Mary Jane Watson²-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/JenniferHale²²Peter Parker's girlfriend, left back on Earth when Peter decided to go to CounterEarth.²----²* DemotedToExtra: Outside of the first episode, she only appears in flashbacks or only mentioned.²* HeroesWantRedheads: As is traditional (especially as the series pre-dates ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay''), Peter loves MJ.²²!!Dr. Naoko Yamada-Jones²-->'''Voiced by:''' Akiko Morison²²A single mother and doctor who Peter lives with during his stay on Counter-Earth.²----²* ComplainingAboutRescuesTheyDontLike: After her clinic was damaged in a battle between Spidey and the symbiotes, she turned on Spidey and blamed him for it.²* LoveInterests: Peter starts developing feelings for her and vice versa, contributing to his guilt over having abandoned MJ. The fact that Naoko's jealous ex is watching over his family from the shadows doesn't help matters.²* HeroicNeutral: While not a member of the Resistance itself, she's not against aiding them when they're injured.²* UngratefulBastard: She was initially OK with Spider-Man due to him saving her and Shane, but after a battle with Venom and Carnage destroyed her home and clinic, she blamed him for the destruction.²²!!Shane Yamada-Jones²-->'''Voiced by:''' Rhys Huber²²Naoko's son, whom Peter saved from a malfunctioning Machine Man.²----²* MixedRace: His mother is of Japanese descent and his father is Hispanic.²²!!Mr. Meugniot²-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/GaryChalk²²Peter's boss at the ''Daily Byte'' while he's on Counter-Earth.²----²* {{Expy}}: Many of his mannerisms are identical to J. Jonah Jameson, causing Peter to snakily ask if he can call Mr. Meugniot "JJ".²* {{Paparazzi}}: And unapologetic about it, too. Unlike Jameson, who despite his anti-superhero prejudices cares for the truth, Meugniot accepts and is okay with running a tabloid. Case in point, he sends Peter out to get photos not of Spider-Man fighting crime, but of his private life.²* {{Tuckerization}}: He's named after producer Will Meugniot.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:The Resistance]]²!!Tropes associated with the group as a whole:²* DarkAndTroubledPast: [[spoiler:John was experimented on and capable of changing into a wolf-like form, Karen is (unknowingly) the High Evolutionary's granddaughter and was experimented on by him, Git was likewise experimented on by Sir Ram, Bromley lost his family and their bakery to the High Evoultionary's takeover of the planet when he was a kid, and X-51 is an older model of the Machine Men who was planned to be destroyed because he gained sentience and empathy]].²* LaResistance: They're fighting for humans to have equal rights as Beastials.²²!!John Jameson²-->'''Voiced by:''' John Payne, Creator/ScottMcNeil (as Man-Wolf)²²The son of newspaper editor J. Jonah Jameson, it's his trip to Counter-Earth that kicks off the plot of the series, as Venom and Carnage hijack it to go to the planet, Peter gets blamed for the shuttle disappeared, and it's his message for help that motivated Peter to go takes the ''Solaris II'' to Counter Earth. While on Counter-Earth, John has become the leader of a resistance movement against the High Evolutionary.²----²* AdaptationOriginConnection: [[spoiler:His Man-Wolf form here is the result of experiments the High Evolutionary performed on him as opposed to finding a powerful gem on the moon.]]²* BeastMan: [[spoiler:This show was the first time John's Man-Wolf form appeared outside of comics.]]²* TheLeader: After being captured and experimented on, he becomes the leader of the Resistance.²* OurWerewolvesAreDifferent: Like his comic counterpart, he can transform into Man-Wolf. [[spoiler:This incarnation, however, is due to the High Evolutionary trying to find a way to turn humans into Bestials.]]²²!!Karen O'Malley²-->'''Voiced by:''' Kim Hawthorne²²A member of the Resistance and LoveInterest for John Jameson.²----²* BadassAbnormal: She was augmented in the womb by the High Evolutionary, granting her mild superhuman abilities.²* BadassLongcoat: She is never seen without her trench coat.²* LoveInterest: While early episodes tease her being attracted to Spider-Man, she becomes one for John.²* LukeIAmYourFather: While he doesn't tell her, she's the High Evolutionary's granddaughter.²* OlderThanTheyLook: She looks to be in her early to mid twenties but was a child when the High Evolutionary took over the planet, putting her in her mid to late thirties.²²!!Daniel Bromley²-->'''Voiced by:''' Christopher Gaze²²One of the few Resistance fighters who's old enough to remember the time before the High Evolutionary's takeover of the planet. He lost his family and their bakery during the takeover.²----²* IDidWhatIHadToDo: [[spoiler:After the Knights capture him, he sells Spidey out for a chance to see his brother again. However, he later saves Spidey from being tortured.]]²* NotSoDifferent: [[spoiler:Spidey rubs Bromley's face in selling him out after it turns out that Bromsley's brother Durwood had likewise sold Bromley out for a promotion. Bromley bitterly concedes he deserved it.]]²* ShaggyDogStory: [[spoiler:"Matters of the Heart" ended with his reunion with his brother, Durwood, turning sour as Bromley sold out Bromley and Spidey for a promotion.]]²²!!Git Hoskins²²A member of the resistance who was experimented on as a child by Sir Ram.²----²* AmbiguouslyHuman: While he was originally human, it's unclear exactly what he is after Sir Ram's experiments.²* HarmfulToMinors: He was experimented on as a child by Sir Ram.²* {{Mummy}}: His appparence invokes this.²* MummyWrap: Has this ability thanks to Sir Ram's experiments.²* TheVoiceless: He doesn't talk.²²!!X-51²-->'''Voiced by:''' Dale Wislon²²An older model of Machine Men, X-51 joined the Human Resistance after the Knights tried to destroy him when he grew beyond his programming.²----²* AdaptationOriginConnection: In the comics, Machine Man's origins were tied to the comic version of ''Film/TwoThousandOneASpaceOdyssey''. This version was created as one of the High Evolutionary's {{Mecha Mook}}s.²* AIIsACrapshoot: The Knights didn't expect him to gain sentience or empathy, and tried to destroy him and study him.²* MechaMook: An earlier version of the Machine Men that enforced the High Evolutionary's will.²* TheMole: The Resistence rebuild him with the appearance of the current model of Machine Men in order for him to help them in Beastial complexes.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Allies]]²²!! Green Goblin/Hector Jones²-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/RinoRomano²²* AdaptationalHeroism: The original Green Goblin was an AxCrazy MadBomber who was by far Spider-Man's worst ArchEnemy; this Goblin, while he's not (and probably ''because'' he's not) Norman Osborn, serves as a genuine ally to Spidey whose worst trait is that he's a...²* CrazyJealousGuy: Hector is insanely possessive of Naoko and Shane, installing spy cameras around their house and calling frequently to argue with her over welcoming another man into the house -- and this is ''after'' he walked out on them. He even attacks Peter as the Goblin in an attempt to scare him away.²* DashingHispanic: While more than a little creepy, he establishes himself as a hero and ally to Spider-Man, and does all he can to keep his family safe.²* GadgeteerGenius: He built his Goblin suit and weapons himself, and his skill as an engineer was what drew the attention of the Resistance.²* GivingThemTheStrip: And {{lampshaded}}, too as he noted no other hero would what he was about about to do to ditch a BlobMonster connected to Venom and Carnage that had him by the legs--take over his pants. Granted, the man was wearing a second suit with boxers, but he was still right.²* LetsYouAndHimFight: He picks a fight with Spider-Man twice, first due to assuming he was one of the High Evolutionary's minions, and the second time in an attempt to drive him away from Naoko.²²!! Vulture²-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/ScottMcNeil²²A human who lived in the upper world and joined Beastials in tormenting humans until his family's housekeeper and her son, who was his best friend, lost their home in a fire he and the Beastials started. From then on, he vowed to atone for his actions and protect humans from the cruelity of Beastials.²----²* TheAtoner: The reason for his actions is to atone for how he treated humans in the past, after his actions resulted in his best friend and his family losing their home.²* YouGottaHaveBlueHair: Well, green in this case.²²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Wundagore]]²²!!High Evolutionary/Herbert Wyndham²-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/RichardNewman²²The dictator of Counter Earth, a tyrant who keeps humans oppressed under the heel of his creations, the Bestials.²----²* AdaptationOriginConnection: [[spoiler:He experimented on John Jameson, being the cause of this incarnation's Man-Wolf form.]] Additionally, the show's incarnation of [[ComicBook/{{Nextwave}} X-51]] started off as an earlier model of his MechaMooks.²* BadBoss: In typical fashion, he tends to berate his lackeys for their failures and threaten them.²* EvilutionaryBiologist: He engineered the New Men, better known as Bestials, to supplant humans as the dominant species of Counter Earth, and thirty years prior to the start of the series carried out a coup d'état that established him as a dictator.²* FromNobodyToNightmare: Before becoming a tyrant clad in ridiculous armor, he was a relatively ordinary man with a genius-level intellect and in genetics. After becoming disgusted with humankind, he created the Bestials and declared war on his own species, conquering all of Counter-Earth.²* HandBlast: He can fire blasts of green energy from his hands.²* {{Hypocrite}}: While not called on it, he's a human who despises other humans. Additionally, he overlooks that the Beastials display the same traits he claims to despise in humans.²* LukeIAmYourFather: [[spoiler:While he doesn't tell her, he's Karen's grandfather.]]²* MadScientist: He likes to experiment on lifeforms.²* MindOverMatter: He wields telekinesis.²* MisanthropeSupreme: Despite being a human himself, he sees normal humans as being inferior to the Bestials he created.²* MoralMyopia: He tends to overlook that everything he hates in humanity are present in the Beastials, including the Knights.²* MultipleChoicePast: He claims to have emigrated from Earth after having become disgusted with mankind's decadence, but later episodes reveal he was a more-or-less normal guy before he experimented on his granddaughter to save her life and was kicked to the curb by his family.²* OlderThanTheyLook: Downplayed; although he does look like an older man, thanks to his white hair, he notes in the second episode that he came to Counter-Earth roughly 50 years ago, and as that would put him somewhere in his 80s at the youngest, he looks to be in ''fantastic'' shape.²* OmnicidalManiac: [[spoiler:The finale sees him go off the deep end to rid himself of the Resistance, Spider-Man, the symbiotes, and ultimately humanity as a whole.]]²* ProfessorGuineaPig: Implied; given that he's a genius geneticist who displays powerful psychic abilities, and that he experimented on his own granddaughter, it's logical to presume he's given himself some genetic upgrades.²* ScaryImpracticalArmor: Contrasting the futuristic Counter Earth, he dresses like a medieval fantasy tyrant, wearing a blue-tinted black tunic, red surcoat, and huge spike-studded shoulder pads.²* YouAreWhatYouHate: He is very much human like the people he despises.²* YouHaveFailedMe: He threatens to execute Lady Ursula if she fails to stop Spider-Man.²²!!The Knights of Wundagore²-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/DavidSobolov (Lord Tyger), Creator/RonHalder (Sir Ram), Creator/JenniferHale (Lady Vermin), Tasha Simms (Lady Ursula)²²The Knights of Wundagore are the elite guard of the High Evolutionary on Counter-Earth and are comprised entirely of bestials.²----²* AbhorrentAdmirer: Lady Vermin has the hots for Spider-Man. Even ignoring he's got a wife waiting for him on Earth, the concept of dating a rat woman? Unappealing for Peter.²* AdaptationalBadass: In the comics, Lady Vermin wasn't quite as evolved as her kinsmen, still resembling a normal mouse and needing a jetpack to help keep up with them. Here, she's as evolved as the rest of them.²* BadassBaritone: Matching his stature, Lord Tyger has a deep, booming voice, though this is to be expected when one is voiced by Creator/DavidSobolov.²* BackForTheDead: Much like Spidey, the Knights are killed by Dameos in ''ComicBook/SpiderVerse''.²* BeastMan: They're mutated animals -- Lord Tyger is a tiger, Lady Vermin is a rat, Sir Ram is a ram, and Lady Ursula is a bear.²* CoDragons: They're the chief enforcers for the High Evolutionary, flying around the city on horse-shaped flying motorcycles.²* DeathGlare: When the High Evolutionary tells him to shut up and refuses to let him interrogate Karen O'Malley, Sir Ram levels a furious glare at his master's back.²* GoKartingWithBowser: Despite being the High Evolutionary's top enforcers, they occasionally have [[EnemyMine amicable interactions]] with Spider-Man and the Resistance, only to go back to trying to kill each other the following day.²* {{Hypocrite}}: Much like their master, for all of their boasting about their superiority, they tend to overlook the obvious fact that one: many of the Beastials (the Knights included) exhibit the same flaws the High Evolutionary despises in humans and two: their master is himself human.²* MadScientist: Sir Ram shares this trait with the High Evolutionary.²* PunnyName: Lord Tyger is a tiger, Lady Vermin is a rat, Sir Ram is a male sheep, and Lady Ursula is a bear.²* NobleTopEnforcer: [[TokenGoodTeammate Lord Tyger]], unlike the rest of the Knights, does have some sympathy for humans.²* TokenGoodTeammate: Lord Tyger, who unlike his cohorts (especially Sir Ram), doesn't get his jollies off the suffering of others. The rebels even thought of him as the most reasonable of the Knights.²* UngratefulBastard: Despite Spider-Man saving him several times, Sir Ram never once shows gratitude, and only becomes more hateful towards Spider-Man.²* UnexplainedAccent: Lady Ursula has a Russian accent despite having been created in a parallel version of New York.²* VillainessesWantHeroes: Lady Vermin expresses a romantic attraction to Spider-Man, who exploits this a few times despite being disgusted and creeped out.²* WeAreStrugglingTogether: While they both follow the High Evolutionary's orders, Sir Tyger and Sir Ram increasingly dislike each other, largely due to the former's strong sense of honor and nobility.²* WouldHurtAChild: Sir Ram experimented on Git as a kid.²²!!The Machine Men²-->'''Voiced by:''' Dale Wilson²²The enforcers of the Knights.²----²* AdaptationOriginConnection: A lone surviving drone of an earlier model became the show's version of [[ComicBook/{{Nextwave}} X-51]].²* MechaMooks: They work for the High Evolutionary and the Knights to enforce their will.²[[/folder]]²²[[folder:Symbiotes]]²!!Tropes that apply to the group:²* AdaptationalBadass: Even when bonded to Brock and Kasady, Venom and Carnage are full-on {{Blob Monster}}s akin to the [[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay T-1000]].²* BigBadEnsemble: Venom and Carnage had this dynamic with the High Evolutionary.²* TheBadGuyWins: The symbiotes succeed in unleashing the Synoptic in the show's final episode.²* BlobMonster: They can become completely amorphous, a power implied to have been conferred on them by the Synoptic.²* CoDragons: Venom and Carnage are this for the Synoptic, operating as a team. Occasionally they work for the High Evolutionary, but always with the intent of furthering the Synoptic's goal of conquering Counter-Earth.²* FusionDance: Venom and Carnage merge together to fight Spider-Man in Episode 11.²* RoyalWe: They refer to themselves in plural terms. While this is a staple of Venom, this is unusual for Carnage.²* SpikesOfVillainy: Venom has two rows of spikes on his back in place of a spider emblem and Carnage is studded with bony spikes.²²!![[ComicBook/{{Venom}} Venom/Eddie Brock]]²-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/BrianDrummond²²A former reporter at the ''Daily Bugle'', Eddie Brock bonded to the Venom symbiote after Peter rejected it. Along with Carnage, he hijacks the ''Solaris I'' to go to Counter-Earth to help the Synoptic, a hive mind for the symbiote, take over the planet.²----²* AdaptationalVillainy: Earth-616 Venom would never have willingly worked with Carnage and even refused to be part of a symbiote invasion's AssimilationPlot. This Venom? Not so much, given he's working with Carnage to help symbiotes take over Counter-Earth.²* CantLiveWithoutYou: Eddie's spent so long bonded to the symbiote that he can't live without it.²* CoDragons: Venom and Carnage are the co-agents for the Synoptic.²* EvilRedhead: Unlike the mainstream Eddie, this version is a redhead.²* HeelFaceTurn: As he's dying, Eddie apologizes for all the harm he's caused. Unfortunately, the symbiote's brief reunion with Spider-Man didn't make it any more sympathetic towards humanity and it goes right back to serving the Synoptic after retaking Eddie.²* PuppeteerParasite: The symbiote is in complete control of Eddie's body.²* ReligionOfEvil: He and Carnage worship the Synoptic, an EldritchAbomination formed from the fused corpses of millions of ancient symbiotes.²* RubberMan: Venom can stretch and freely elongate his limbs.²* SiblingTeam: Carnage and Venom refer to each other as brothers and are almost always found together.²* StalkerWithACrush: Displayed less often than usual, but the symbiote does briefly display this attitude towards Spider-Man in the 2nd episode when it tries to re-bond with him.²---> '''Venom''': "Come Spider-Man; we shall merge and become one, just as it was always meant to be!" ²* TinyHeadedBehemoth: He possesses an almost comically small head atop a Hulk-sized body.²* VoiceOfTheLegion: Venom's voice is [[EvilSoundsDeep deep]] and distorted.²²!![[ComicBook/{{Carnage}} Carnage/Cletus Kasady]]²-->'''Voiced by:''' Creator/MichaelDonovan²²Cletus Kasady was a criminal locked in the same prison as Venom, another symbiote spawned from Venom and bonded itself to Kasady, making him Carnage. Along with Venom, he hijacks the ''Solaris I'' to go to Counter-Earth to help the Synoptic, a hive mind for the symbiote, take over the planet.²----²* AdaptationalNiceGuy: While Carnage is still rather wicked, he prefers to TakeOverTheWorld rather than to just kill as many people as he can ForTheEvulz; that and it's his symbiote that's mainly in control to begin with.²* AdaptationDyeJob: Kasady is depicted with blond hair, when he had red hair in the comics.²* CoDragons: Carnage and Venom are the co-agents for the Synoptic.²* DemBones: Carnage's appearance is ''very'' skeletal, he has bony protrusions all over his body, and he forms bone armor when merged with Venom.²* FusionDance: He and Venom merge together to fight Spider-Man.²* LanternJawOfJustice: More like "Lantern Jaw of ''Injustice", but Carnage has a very protuberant chin.²* LeanAndMean: He's very tall, very thin, and ''very'' nasty.²* PuppeteerParasite: The symbiote is in complete control.²* SiblingTeam: Carnage and Venom refer to each other as brothers and are almost always found together.²* SkeletonsInTheCoatCloset: The red and black markings of his symbiote highlight where his bones are. Taken UpToEleven in the comics, where he has white bony projections covering his ribs.²* ShouldersOfDoom: Part of Carnage's design involves bony spikes all over his body--including his shoulders.²* SpikesOfVillainy: He has bony protrusions all over his body²* YouDontLookLikeYou: He looks nothing like his comic book counterpart and other versions beyond being red and black. Unlike the rest of the villains in the show, this isn't justified by this being a different incarnation, as this is the same Carnage Peter met and fought on Earth.²²!!The Synoptic²²An entity formed from the fused corpses of millions of ancient symbiotes that had lived during the time of the dinosaurs.²----²* BigBadEnsemble: The Synoptic is a borderline EldritchAbomination formed from the amalgamated corpses of Counter Earth's symbiotes, and seeks to conquer the planet like it had in the time of the dinosaurs. This, naturally, conflicts with the High Evolutionary, who already rules Counter Earth and wants to stamp out the human resistance.²* BlobMonster: Unlike all the other symbiotes on Counter Earth, the Synoptic is amorphous -- giving it a greater resemblance to Venom and Carnage than its progeny.²* GreenAndMean: It's green in color, which causes the Goblin to refer to it as a snot monster.²* MindHive: It has the combined consciousness of the millions of symbiotes that comprise it, effectively making it a HiveMind for Venom, Carnage, and its offspring.²* MotherOfAThousandYoung: The Synoptic continuously spawns insectoid Symbiotes, which it has charged Venom and Carnage with finding hosts for.²* ReligionOfEvil: Venom and Carnage worship it as a deity, seeking to carry out its will.²* SuperEmpowering: The Synoptic somehow contacted and augmented Venom and Carnage while they were still on Earth, granting them enhanced shapeshifting abilities and the power to become completely amorphous.²* YouDontLookLikeYou: The symbiotes comprising and spawned by the Synoptic look nothing like those bonded to Venom and Carnage, being yellow insectoid creatures that cover their host in tumorous-looking growths and TaintedVeins, rather than amorphous creatures that cover their host in BioArmor.²[[/folder]]
