Spider-Man/Peter Parker

Voiced by: Rino Romano

Our 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.

At 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.

  • Adaptational Badass: 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.
  • Back for the Dead: This Peter is killed by Daemos at the beginning of Spider-Verse.note 
  • Badass Cape: The new suit sports a cape similar to the one on Miguel O'Hara.
  • Composite Character: He sports a similar buzzcut to Ben Reilly and the reddish-brown color and Badass Cape of Miguel O'Hara.
  • Clear My Name: 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.
  • Faking the Dead: 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.
  • It's All My Fault: 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.
  • Heroic Neutral: 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.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: Big-time, given Jameson blames him for the shuttle going off-course, a fireman 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.
  • Invisibility Cloak: A feature of the new suit, though using it for long periods tends to overheat it.
  • Kleptomaniac Hero: It's strongly implied that the nanotech suit was stolen from Reed Richards's lab. Additionally, he swiped the Solaris II to get to Counter-Earth.
  • My Greatest Failure: Uncle Ben, though the origin is only seen in the opening credits.
  • Powered Armor: His suit is made up of nanites stolen from Mr. Fantastic and flashes with Tron Lines whenever he puts it on, but he still manually has to change web cartridges.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Spider-Man does his best to be adamantly indifferent to the plight of humanity on Counter-Earth; all he really cares about is dragging John home so he can force J. Jonah Jameson to call off his bounty on him.
  • Transformation Horror: The High Evolutionary hits him with a beam meant to turn him into a Bestial, briefly changing him into Man-Spider.

    Supporting Cast 

Mary Jane Watson

Voiced by: Jennifer Hale

Peter Parker's girlfriend, left back on Earth when Peter decided to go to Counter-Earth.

Dr. Naoko Yamada-Jones

Voiced by: Akiko Morison

A single mother and doctor who Peter lives with during his stay on Counter-Earth.

  • Complaining About Rescues They Don't Like: After her clinic was damaged in a battle between Spidey and the symbiotes, she turned on Spidey and blamed him for it.
  • Love Interests: 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.
  • Heroic Neutral: While not a member of the Resistance itself, she's not against aiding them when they're injured.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: 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.

Shane Yamada-Jones

Voiced by: Rhys Huber

Naoko's son, whom Peter saved from a malfunctioning Machine Man.

  • Mixed Race: His mother is of Japanese descent and his father is Hispanic.

Mr. Meugniot

Voiced by: Gary Chalk

Peter's boss at the Daily Byte while he's on Counter-Earth.

  • Expy: Many of his mannerisms are identical to J. Jonah Jameson, causing Peter to snakily ask if he can call Mr. Meugniot "JJ".
  • 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.
  • Tuckerization: He's named after producer Will Meugniot.

    The Resistance 

Tropes associated with the group as a whole:

  • Dark and Troubled Past: 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.
  • La Résistance: They're fighting for humans to have equal rights as Beastials.

John Jameson

Voiced by: John Payne, Scott McNeil (as Man-Wolf)

The 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.

  • Adaptation Origin Connection: 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.
  • Beast Man: This show was the first time John's Man-Wolf form appeared outside of comics.
  • The Leader: After being captured by the High Evolutionary, experimented on, and escaping, he becomes the leader of the Resistance.
  • Our Werewolves Are Different: Like his comic counterpart, he can transform into Man-Wolf. This incarnation, however, is due to the High Evolutionary trying to find a way to turn humans into Bestials.

Karen O'Malley

Voiced by: Kim Hawthorne

A member of the Resistance and Love Interest for John Jameson.

  • Badass Abnormal: She was augmented in the womb by the High Evolutionary, granting her mild superhuman abilities.
  • Badass Longcoat: She is never seen without her trench coat.
  • Love Interest: While early episodes tease her being attracted to Spider-Man, she becomes one for John.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: While he doesn't tell her, she's the High Evolutionary's granddaughter.
  • Older Than They Look: 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.

Daniel Bromley

Voiced by: Christopher Gaze

One 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.

  • I Did What I Had to Do: 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.
  • Not So Different: 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.
  • "Shaggy Dog" Story: "Matters of the Heart" ended with his reunion with his brother, Durwood, turning sour as Durwood sold out Bromley and Spidey for a promotion.

Git Hoskins

A member of the resistance who was experimented on as a child by Sir Ram.

  • Ambiguously Human: While he was originally human, it's unclear exactly what he's become after Sir Ram's experiments.
  • Harmful to Minors: He was experimented on as a child by Sir Ram.
  • Mummy: His appearance invokes this, due to him being completely wrapped in, and possibly composed of, bandages.
  • Mummy Wrap: Has this ability thanks to Sir Ram's experiments.
  • The Voiceless: He doesn't talk.


Voiced by: Dale Wislon

An older model of Machine Men, X-51 joined the Human Resistance after the Knights tried to destroy him when he grew beyond his programming.

  • Adaptation Origin Connection: In the comics, Machine Man's origins were tied to the comic version of 2001: A Space Odyssey. This version was created as one of the High Evolutionary's Mecha Mooks.
  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: The Knights didn't expect him to gain sentience or empathy, and tried to destroy him and study him.
  • Mecha-Mook: An earlier version of the Machine Men that enforced the High Evolutionary's will.
  • The Mole: The Resistance rebuild him with the appearance of the current model of Machine Men in order for him to help them in Beastial complexes.


Green Goblin/Hector Jones

Voiced by: Rino Romano

  • Adaptational Heroism: The original Green Goblin was an Ax-Crazy Mad Bomber who was by far Spider-Man's worst Arch-Enemy; 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...
  • Crazy Jealous Guy: 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.
  • Creepy Good: 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.
  • Dashing Hispanic: When not wearing his monstrous costume, he's a very handsome and charming Spanish man, and he's clearly passionately in love with Naoko.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: He built his Goblin suit and weapons himself, and his skill as an engineer was what drew the attention of the Resistance.
  • Giving Them the Strip: And lampshaded, too, as he noted no other hero would what he was about to do to ditch a Blob Monster connected to Venom and Carnage that had him by the legs—take off his pants. Granted, the man was wearing boxers and his costume underneath, but he was still right.
  • Let's You and Him Fight: 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.


Voiced by: Scott McNeil

A 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.

  • The Atoner: 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.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Hair: Well, green in this case.


High Evolutionary/Herbert Wyndham

Voiced by: Richard Newman

The dictator of Counter Earth, a tyrant who keeps humans oppressed under the heel of his creations, the Bestials.

  • Adaptation Origin Connection: He experimented on John Jameson, being the cause of this incarnation's Man-Wolf form. Additionally, the show's incarnation of X-51 started off as an earlier model of his Mecha-Mooks.
  • Bad Boss: In typical fashion, he tends to berate his lackeys for their failures and threaten them.
  • Evilutionary Biologist: 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.
  • From Nobody to Nightmare: Before becoming a tyrant clad in ridiculous armor, he was a relatively ordinary man with a genius-level intellect specializing in genetics. After becoming disgusted with humankind, he created the Bestials and declared war on his own species, conquering all of Counter-Earth.
  • Hand Blast: He can fire blasts of green energy from his hands.
  • 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.
  • Luke, I Am Your Father: While he doesn't tell her, he's Karen's grandfather.
  • Mad Scientist: He likes to experiment on lifeforms.
  • Mind over Matter: He wields telekinesis.
  • Misanthrope Supreme: Despite being a human himself, he sees normal humans as being inferior to the Bestials he created.
  • Moral Myopia: He tends to overlook that everything he hates in humanity are present in the Beastials, including the Knights.
  • Multiple-Choice Past: 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 already living on Counter-Earth before he experimented on his granddaughter to save her life and was kicked to the curb by his family.
  • Older Than They Look: 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.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: 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.
  • Professor Guinea Pig: 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.
  • Rogues Gallery Transplant: In the comics, the High Evolutionary originally appeared as a villain to The Mighty Thor, before becoming an Avengers villain and has clashed with a few other superheroes as well. Here, he's the Big Bad of a Spider-Man story.
  • Scary Impractical Armor: 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.
  • You Are What You Hate: He is very much human like the people he despises.
  • You Have Failed Me: He threatens to execute Lady Ursula if she fails to stop Spider-Man.

The Knights of Wundagore

Voiced by: David Sobolov (Lord Tyger), Ron Halder (Sir Ram), Jennifer Hale (Lady Vermin), Tasha Simms (Lady Ursula)

The Knights of Wundagore are the elite guard of the High Evolutionary on Counter-Earth and are comprised entirely of bestials.

  • Abhorrent Admirer: 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.
  • Adaptational Badass: 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.
  • Badass Baritone: Matching his stature, Lord Tyger has a deep, booming voice, though this is to be expected when one is voiced by David Sobolov.
  • Back for the Dead: Much like Spidey, the Knights are killed by Dameos in Spider-Verse.
  • Beast Man: 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.
  • Co-Dragons: They're the chief enforcers for the High Evolutionary, flying around the city on horse-shaped flying motorcycles.
  • Death Glare: 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.
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: Despite being the High Evolutionary's top enforcers, they occasionally have amicable interactions with Spider-Man and the Resistance, only to go back to trying to kill each other the following day.
  • 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.
  • Mad Scientist: Sir Ram shares this trait with the High Evolutionary.
  • Punny Name: Lord Tyger is a tiger, Lady Vermin is a rat, Sir Ram is a male sheep, and Lady Ursula is a bear.
  • Noble Top Enforcer: Lord Tyger, unlike the rest of the Knights, does have some sympathy for humans.
  • The Starscream: It's implied Sir Raam secretly plots to usurp his creator, the High Evolutionary, as seen by his conducting secret experiments in mutation, which produce creatures like Firedrake.
  • Token Good Teammate: 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.
  • Ungrateful Bastard: Despite Spider-Man saving him several times, Sir Ram never once shows gratitude, and only becomes more hateful towards Spider-Man.
  • Unexplained Accent: Lady Ursula has a Russian accent despite having been created in a parallel version of New York.
  • Villainesses Want Heroes: Lady Vermin expresses a romantic attraction to Spider-Man, who exploits this a few times despite being disgusted and creeped out.
  • We ARE Struggling Together: 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.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Sir Ram experimented on Git as a kid.

The Machine Men

Voiced by: Dale Wilson

The enforcers of the Knights.


Tropes that apply to the group:

  • Adaptational Badass: Even when not bonded to Brock and Kasady, Venom and Carnage are full-on Blob Monsters akin to the T-1000.
  • Big Bad Ensemble: Venom and Carnage had this dynamic with the High Evolutionary.
  • The Bad Guy Wins: The symbiotes succeed in unleashing the Synoptic in the show's final episode.
  • Blob Monster: They can become completely amorphous, a power implied to have been conferred on them by the Synoptic.
  • Co-Dragons: 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.
  • Fusion Dance: Venom and Carnage merge together to fight Spider-Man in Episode 11.
  • Royal "We": They refer to themselves in plural terms. While this is a staple of Venom, this is unusual for Carnage.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Venom has two rows of spikes on his back in place of a spider emblem and Carnage is studded with bony spikes.

Venom/Eddie Brock

Voiced by: Brian Drummond

A 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.

  • Adaptational Villainy: Earth-616 Venom would never have willingly worked with Carnage and even refused to be part of a symbiote invasion's Assimilation Plot. This Venom? Not so much, given he's working with Carnage to help symbiotes take over Counter-Earth.
  • Can't Live Without You: Eddie's spent so long bonded to the symbiote that he can't live without it.
  • Co-Dragons: Venom and Carnage are the co-agents for the Synoptic.
  • Evil Redhead: Unlike the mainstream Eddie, this version is a redhead.
  • Heel–Face Turn: 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.
  • Puppeteer Parasite: The symbiote is in complete control of Eddie's body.
  • Religion of Evil: He and Carnage worship the Synoptic, an Eldritch Abomination formed from the fused corpses of millions of ancient symbiotes.
  • Rubber Man: Venom can stretch and freely elongate his limbs.
  • Sibling Team: Carnage and Venom refer to each other as brothers and are almost always found together.
  • Stalker with a Crush: 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.
    Venom: "Yield, Spider-Man, yield to the Synoptic! You and I shall merge and be one, as it always should have been!"
  • Tiny-Headed Behemoth: He possesses an almost comically small head atop a Hulk-sized body.
  • Voice of the Legion: Venom's voice is deep and distorted.

Carnage/Cletus Kasady

Voiced by: Michael Donovan

Cletus 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.

  • Adaptational Nice Guy: While Carnage is still rather wicked, he prefers to Take Over the World rather than to just kill as many people as he can For the Evulz; that and it's his symbiote that's mainly in control to begin with.
  • Adaptation Dye-Job: Kasady is depicted with blond hair, when he had red hair in the comics.
  • Co-Dragons: Carnage and Venom are the co-agents for the Synoptic.
  • Dem Bones: Carnage's appearance is very skeletal, he has bony protrusions all over his body, and he forms bone armor when merged with Venom.
  • Fusion Dance: He and Venom merge together to fight Spider-Man.
  • Lantern Jaw of Justice: More like "Lantern Jaw of ''Injustice", but Carnage has a very protuberant chin.
  • Lean and Mean: He's very tall, very thin, and very nasty.
  • Puppeteer Parasite: The symbiote is in complete control.
  • Sibling Team: Carnage and Venom refer to each other as brothers and are almost always found together.
  • Skeletons in the Coat Closet: The red and black markings of his symbiote highlight where his bones are. Taken Up to Eleven in the comics, where he has white bony projections covering his ribs.
  • Shoulders of Doom: Part of Carnage's design involves bony spikes all over his body—including his shoulders.
  • Spikes of Villainy: He has bony protrusions all over his body
  • You Don't Look Like You: 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.

The Synoptic

An entity formed from the fused corpses of millions of ancient symbiotes that had lived during the time of the dinosaurs.

  • Big Bad Ensemble: The Synoptic is a borderline Eldritch Abomination 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.
  • Blob Monster: Unlike all the other symbiotes on Counter Earth, the Synoptic is amorphous — giving it a greater resemblance to Venom and Carnage than its progeny.
  • Green and Mean: It's green in color, which causes the Goblin to refer to it as a snot monster.
  • Mind Hive: It has the combined consciousness of the millions of symbiotes that comprise it, effectively making it a Hive Mind for Venom, Carnage, and its offspring.
  • Mother of a Thousand Young: The Synoptic continuously spawns insectoid Symbiotes, which it has charged Venom and Carnage with finding hosts for.
  • Religion of Evil: Venom and Carnage worship it as a deity, seeking to carry out its will.
  • Super Empowering: 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.
  • You Don't Look Like You: 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 Tainted Veins, rather than amorphous creatures that cover their host in Bio-Armor.

How well does it match the trope?
