Late last month, the October episode descriptions for the Marvel’s Spider-Man cartoon were revealed. With animated version of the “Superior Spider-Man Saga,” that saw Otto Octavius swap minds with Peter Parker a.k.a Spider-Man, having concluded the next story arc begins this Sunday. A teaser released yesterday on the official DisneyXD YouTube channel indicates that we’ll be seeing some new villains, such as Mister Negative and Molten Man, making their debut in the series during the arc called “The Cellar Saga.”
Those who’ve read Dan Slott‘s epic Spidey comics run will recall that Cellar prison conceived by the character Augustus Roman better known as the Regent. Debuting in the Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows miniseries by Slott and artist Adam Kubert, Regent used the Cellar prison as a front to siphon the powers from incarcerated supervillains. If you look closely and you’ll notice a character and you’ll see Regent, or at least a character wearing his trademark insignia.
Understandably, it’s a more streamlined and simplified aesthetic for animation than the original Kubert design.
“Cellar Saga” episode titles and descriptions below:
“Brand New Day” on Sunday, Oct. 20 (9:30 p.m. EDT/PDT)
When a series of attacks by a suspected team of super-villains captures The Avengers, Spider-Man is left to figure out who could be behind it.
“The Cellar” on Sunday, Oct. 27 (9:30 p.m. EDT/PDT)
Spider-Man takes his mission to The Cellar where he believes The Regent is using the powers of Cloak and Dagger, as well as other supervillains, to hold The Avengers captive.
It’s Peter Parker’s sophomore year and he’s no longer an inexperienced superhero, or new student at the intimidating Horizon High. With his ever-growing Rogue’s Gallery focused on taking him down, Peter must balance working at the Daily Bugle with surviving Doc Ock’s attempts to get rid of Spider-Man once and for all!
