    Season 1 

  • Just from the first two episodes alone it seems like the series will be filled with these thanks to Peter's Imagine Spots.

Great Power

  • Blink and you'll miss it, but in the opening sequence in "Great Power", Spidey does a triple axel as he sails across the Jumbotron screen.
  • His first three run ins with Trapster are shown in hand drawings of him being stuck on a school bus, on top of the Liberty Torch, and on the Thing's back.
  • The Cut during Fury's lecture about how other heroes "started out clueless", to Iron Man first trying out the MK. III Armor, ricocheting around his private garage before crashing into and destroying one of his cars, embedding himself in it upside-down, and remaining stuck there for a couple seconds while the alarm blares for comedic effect.
  • When the Frightful Four attack Midtown High, we get this jewel:
    Wizard: If Spider-Man doesn't reveal himself, we'll tear this school down brick by brick!
    Random Student: YEAH!
    Wizard: We're serious.
    Random Student: (nervously covers mouth)
    • After Harry tries to protect Mary Jane, Claw makes a comment that becomes a funny combination of Irony and Foreshadowing later in the series.
    Claw: This school is filled with would-be heroes.
  • In "Great Power," during a fight with the Frightful Four in Midtown High, Flash Thompson tells Spider-Man that he's his biggest fan and he wants to help. Remembering how he gets stuffed into a locker by this jerk on a daily basis, Peter responds as thus:
    Spider-Man: Definitely, "bro." (Opens one of the lockers) Step in.
    Flash Thompson: [eagerly stepping into the locker] Now what?
    Spider-Man: Wait for my signal. Jump out, and we'll surround them. Remember, wait for my signal. (Slams the door shut) Immature, I know, but it felt SO good!
  • The SHIELD Helicarrier comes with a key fob. That is hilarious.

Great Responsibility

  • Aunt May soundly trouncing Peter at video games and his shocked expression.
  • Peter's "Wall of Shame" spot where we see Nick Fury crying his good eye out.
  • White Tiger poking fun at Nova in "Great Responsibility." It's the insultingly cutesy-wootzy tone to her voice she adds that does it.
    White Tiger: Look who thinks he's still in charge. It's so cute.
    • Followed immediately by:
      Spider-Man (chucking aside a torn up robot arm): Next?
      Fury: Web-Parachute test. (Smirks) See you tomorrow.
      Spider-Man: "Parachute Test?"
      (Cue the floor opening up and sending Spidey plummeting to the ground below, screaming at the top of his lungs like a little girl all the way.)
  • After Norman makes a comment about the possibility of Spider-Man being right under his minions' noses, Spidey floats into the background with a parachute made out of webbing.
    Spider-Man: I've gotta go to the bathroom!
  • Peter visits Harry in the hospital.
    Peter: Hey, hero! I brought you something from school.
  • Norman compliments Peter for having Harry's best interests.
    Peter: Wouldn't it be nice if everyone had a dad like that?
  • In "Great Responsiblity," MJ is wondering who Spider-Man could be, saying he could be anyone, a teacher, a student, and then, just like clockwork, Stan the Janitor walks by.
    Stan (jokingly) Thwip! Thwip!
  • Pete imagining how his interview with MJ would go.
  • Minutes after that, Spidey meets Dr. Curt Connors, who actually manages to put one over on him by feigning his canonical missing arm.
    Spider-Man (Imagine Spot): I like this guy.
  • Of course there was Spidey's first test run on the Spider Cycle, which he barely has control over, and has him driving crazy over New York.
  • While test-driving the Spider-Cycle for the first time, Spidey lands on the Jumbotron of J. Jonah Jameson in the middle of his daily rant against superhumans. He promptly uses the bike to draw a mustache on him via skidmark.
  • Peter shaking hands with Nick Fury—then activating his web-parachute, which covers them both. "...Awkward."
  • When Peter finds out his teammates are now going to his school he says he has to talk to a guy. Cut to him at the Principal's office demanding a transfer. Funniest part? The Chair Reveal that Agent Coulson is the Acting Principal and Fury wants him to stay right where he is.
    Peter: Coulson!?
    Coulson: Acting Principal Coulson. *Spidey hands* Thwip thwip!
    • And after that moment, Peter is not too fond of his current situation... til he realizes that his teammates just pushed Flash into a locker:
      Peter: Okay, maybe yes.
  • A lovely exchange between Coulson and Spider-Man:
    Coulson: The Daily Bugle says that Spider-Man is a threat to public safety.
    Peter: But I'm so cuddly.
  • This:
    Spider-Man: ...And I've already met Captain Bucket-head.
    Nova: Able to carry two buckets of water in a single— NAME'S NOVA, CREEP.
    Spider-Man: "Nova Creep"? Catchy.


  • Sam proudly holding up his mashed potato sculpture of Coulson.
  • Spidey and Nova's imaginary faces after White Tiger calls them Dork 1 and Dork 2.
  • As the team has to clean up after Spider-Man and Nova's mess, Iron Fist provides an... interesting, zen rebuttal to White Tiger's complaining.
    Iron Fist: The tornado can become a breeze, only as temperatures cool down.
    White Tiger stares blankly at Iron Fist
    Luke Cage: He does that.
  • White Tiger shreds a Doombot the minute they land in Latveria. It lives long enough to bemoan one thing before exploding:
    Cue explosion.
  • During the fight against "Doctor Doom", when Spidey and Nova both go after Doom at the same time:
    White Tiger: Stupidest. Boys. Ever.
    Iron Fist: As a boy, I second that.
  • During their fight with Doctor Doom(bot), Spider-Man gets one Oh, Crap! pun in after he realizes that Doom's more than a match for them:
    Spider-Man: I'll say it: We're doomed.
    (at which point the spider on his chest does a girly scream and leaps off of him)
    Spider-Man: Yeah, I went there.
  • After Spidey captures Doom, he Imagine Spots a scene where he presents "Doom" to Fury at a dinner table. The funny part? During the scene, the tied up "Doom" demands to have a banana split.
  • Agent Coulson losing his mind, as acting principal.
    Fury: Good Godfrey, Coulson's gone native.
    • Coulson prattles on about the school's budget again, causing Fury to rub his temples.
      Fury: Coulson, we need to talk priorities.

  • "Wheel of Excuses".
  • After Venom crashes a party at Harry's house, everyone hears the crashes. Nova's reaction?
    Sam: Oh! Tell me he rented a lion! Beat What?! Rich people rent lions!
  • As guests are running for their lives, one girl stops, screams, gives Harry her number, and screams again before finally running off.
  • As Nova's getting wrapped up by the symbiote:
    Nova: It's in my pants! Augh!
  • Also, when MJ saves Harry from falling to his death by grabbing the front of his shirt:
    MJ: Sorry!
  • After the battle, Luke and Ava pull Danny free from the Venom-goop that had stuck him to a wall. Unfortunately, doing so ripped off his costume in the process (save his mask), revealing that he wears briefs the same color as his uniform, with a tiny dragon symbol in the front right corner.
    Iron-Fist/Danny (smirking nonchalantly): (shrug) It's a monk thing.
  • MJ instructing Harry how to use a mop while they clean up the aftermath of the party/fight.
    MJ: ...The floppy end does the cleaning.
    Harry: I knew that.

  • Frog Thor: "Thought you could defeat Asgard's warriors? I say thee... ribbit!"
    • Thor talking in general while in frog form. They wisely choose to keep his deep manly voice making everything he says that much funnier.
    "Fear the Frog of Thunder!"
  • Spider-Man's Imagine Spot during the master dwarf's lecture as he hands out weapons to the others, but tells Spidey he doesn't need one because he's had his power inside him all along, but that he has to accept his role as leader to fully unlock it here:
    Spider-Man: You know, sometimes it reeks being the title character. You have to act like "learning a lesson" is somehow better than getting a cool weapon.
  • Thor's gift to the team: a two-headed goat. Which proceeds to bite Spidey's hand.

  • Doctor Strange and Iron Fist discuss Spidey's Arbitrary Skepticism.

  • Doctor Strange gets a nice one over Spidey and Iron Fist: "Speaking of nightmares, ever had the one where you had to get back to school before anyone knew you were missing?" Cue Spidey and Iron Fist with panicked expressions on their faces.


  • When Spider-Man is looking for something to pass off as a science project in order to meet a deadline, he remembers that Curt Connors gave him free access to his laboratory and equipment. Spidey's good and bad angels clarify:
    What Dr. Connors Actually Said: I want you to know, Spidey, I have an open-door policy. If you need any help for yourself or your teammates, I'm here.
    What Spidey Heard: blah blah I have an open door blah blah. If you need anything, blah blah help blah yourself blah.
  • Iron Fist and White Tiger leading the "Awesome Android" away from downtown.
    White Tiger: Come on Andy... That's a good boy...
    White Tiger: This is embarrassing.
  • Spidey preparing himself to confront Andy the Awesome Android.
    White Tiger: Have you lost your mind?!
    Spider-Man: You're only saying that because I'm wearing an ice cream bucket on my head.
  • Juggernaut's disguise is just him wearing a trench coat and a fedora, even though he's the size of the Hulk, he doesn't even remove his helmet.
    • And judging from the fact that no one is reacting to him on the train, it works!

Snow Day

  • As the gang relax at a beach, Ava is seen studying, but Peter busts her when he yanks the book away and finds that it's a romance novel. She grabs it back from him and enthusiastically returns to reading it. What makes the scene funnier is that the book is titled "Thundering Hearts" and the cover model looks suspiciously like Thor.
    • This isn't the first time we see her read romance novels, she's pictured holding a book titled "Fang Love" in one of Spidey's Imagine Spots to what he expects her to be doing, suggesting Spider-Man is well aware of this and a bit of Foreshadowing to this event.
  • Luke Cage and Spider-Man discover Sandman's story, but they get sidetracked by the depictions of Nick Fury and Agent Coulson. While Sandman is chasing after Nova.

Out of Damage Control

  • Spidey accidentally shrinking Nova.
  • After the first battle with the Wrecking Crew, Fury has taken every opportunity to berate Team Spidey for the damage caused, even forcing them to work with Damage Control to clean up the mess. When they finally manage to prove themselves to him, he reinstates them as SHIELD-santioned superheroes...accidentally brushing against a pile of huge, metal pipes. Said pipes start rolling out of control towards one of the damaged buildings, causing it to collapse completely. Not only do we finally get to see what Nick Fury looks like when he screws up, but Spidey puts the cherry on the sundae by grabbing one of the vacuum devices he and the others had been using in the cleanup effort and handing it to Fury.
    Spider-Man: "Special delivery for Director Fury!"
    Gives Fury the vacuum.

  • Nova showing the pictures of Spider-Ham to the others (who laugh uncontrollably), showing Peter didn't quite avoid embarrassing pictures on Picture Day.

The Iron Octopus

  • Spidey's reaction to seeing Norman pull a BFG on Iron Man.
    Spider-Man: "It's safe to say that this is a side of Harry's dad I've never seen before. Is this what he meant when he said I wouldn't understand?"
    Harry: (Trying and failing to open a pickle jar) "Hey dad, could you give me a hand?"
    Norman: (Calmly sets aside his newspaper, pulled out a BFG, and blasts the pickle jar's lid to kingdom come while laughing maniacally)
  • Spidey gets a dig in on Iron Man's security precautions.
    Doc Ock: The arc reactor... Why isn't it recharging?! It should be self-sustaining! I built it to your specifications!

    Spider-Man: Except for the activation codes, apparently.
    (dramatic music stops)
    Spider-Man: Shutting up now.

Not a Toy

  • The team is getting schooled by Captain America by every definition of the word. Spidey tries to web Cap, and gets Coulson instead. He ends up ripping off Colson's jacket and shirt... to reveal that he's wearing a replica of Cap's uniform under them.

    • When the shield lands on Dr Dooms embassy, Spider-Mans ask for the shield back, Doom replies with a missile.
    • Spider-Man imagining that with Cap's help, Doom would just give them back the shield.
      Doom: (sniffs) I'm sorry. Here, take it... I just wanted to play with it for a bit.
      Spider-man: Oh, I know, right? It's so light!
      Doom: And colorful! (Enthusiastically rubs the shield before giving Caps a pair of adorable puppy-dog eyes)
    • "Big ups to my boy, Spider-Man! For making all of my dreams come true." Those words should never come out of Doom's mouth.
      Spider-man: I don't wanna be Doom's boy!
    • At the very end, Agent Coulson loses Captain America's shield out the window again. Right after the beginning where he didn't want to get embarrassed in front of the captain.
  • Iron Man's cameo is priceless. Imagine you're flying in your super armor when out of nowhere, Cap's shield hits you in the head. You look around confused and then see Spider-Man gliding down, who just says "Sup Iron Man, can't talk, gotta glide. Laters!" upon seeing you.


  • Spider-Man just discovered that it was Norman Osborn who was after him, he didn't now this and looked back at some cuts, where he is to busy hanging out with Harry, and was oblivious to Norman who was destroying pictures of Spidey who's right in front of him.
    Peter: (To Harry) Oh yeah? Well your dad's a monster!
    Norman: (comes up behind him, speaking in his normal voice and dressed in a suit despite being the Green Goblin) I'll be back later Harry. I left a thousand dollars in case you get hungry.

    Spidey: Miss Ayala, this is Principal Coulson! Stop this right now or it's a weeks' worth of detention for you!

    Goblin: Not much left in the clever quips reserve.

Ultimate Deadpool

  • The entire episode qualifies. However, there are some highlights.
    • For starters, at the title screen Deadpool uses his katanas to slice "Spider-Man" off and replace it with Deadpool.
