Ghost Spider really is a female Spider-Man. Quippy, misunderstood and wanted by the police, traditionally a loner, has difficulty juggling her double life, has Peter Parker's supporting cast, and prone to accidentally crashing into things. Pretty much tells me that nobody will be mentioning Spider-Man in this anytime soon :p.

Did anyone else get the sense that that "Excelsior Vegan" place was designed for a Stan Lee cameo? The shopkeeper looked a little like Stan, if not the exact likeness of the other cartoons. I guess it might have been more of a tribute then anything else...

It still boggles the mind that we've got a minor role Mary Jane in this when she isn't even in the actual Spider-Man cartoon :(.

The Secret Warriors weren't formed to actually actively stop bad guys, so I wonder how long before Carol finds out they've been going on missions and puts the kibbosh on things :ack:?

I still think Daisy has an issue of not telling Rayshaun things that he would probably be better off knowing. Might need to work on that :rolleyes:.

So did Cap actually train Patriot, or did he just give him a bunch of training videos and leave it from there :sweat:?

It was nice seeing Rayshaun and Doreen's relationship develop as they get to know one another better and Doreen gets Rayshaun to loosen up. She even brought him to her house and introduced him to her dad ;).

Spider-Tracers? Seriously, where does Ghost Spider get all her tech :confused:?

Ms. Marvel, Inferno, and Ms. America really didn't get much to do in this special, even if they acknowledged the former two's issue with Exile. It does make me a tad nervous about how the series will juggle all these heroes, but I guess there will probably be more specials to balance out the development for all the Secret Warriors :).

Exile and Sheath were decent antagonists for the special, even if I feel like they could've done more with them then just have them be beaten and arrested so soon by the end of the episode. Maybe dived into more of Gwen's cartharsis over bringing down Kevin's real killer :oops:.

I wonder if Captain Stacy's role on this show is going to develop into the police guy who's always hassling or trying to arrest the heroes? His stance on Ghost Spider seems to be softening up but he still seems set to be antagonistic towards the heroes :(.

So I guess Ghost Spider is a member of the team now? Maybe? It still seemed ambiguous as to whether she was joining or not. I wonder if she'll reveal her identity to the rest of the group, since she had her mask on while everybody was eating?

I know it's old hat to mention this at some point, though the franchise follows the template of the DC Superhero Girls movies and specials, focusing more on specific characters and certain dynamics over a team dynamic.

From Aunt May?
When was Aunt May a tech genius :p?

Although unlike DC Super Hero Girls this is based and focused around an actual team...

Marvel Rising "Chasing Ghosts"

Not as good as the Secret Warriors movie.

Captain Stacy is a jerk. And why doesn't he recognize his daughter's voice coming from Ghost-Spider?

I love Quake joining in the nutty bar thing at the beginning. She even triumphantly raises it over her head. That was funny.

"We did it!" Kill me now.

Like I said, not as good as the movie. But it was still pretty good. ***1/2.

I didn't know vegan donuts were a thing. I liked Chasing Ghosts, though probably not as much as Initiation or Secret Warriors for whatever reason. I should give it another watch.

It was nice to see the Sheath story wrap up. It's too bad that Capt. Stacy seemed to let his pride get in the way a bit when it came to admitting he was wrong about Ghost Spider but it's great that her innocence was proven. I hope we get to see Ghost and the team do something as a team soon.

We're probably supposed to assume Gwen's mask effectively muffles her voice to the point where it's not recognizable.

And maybe Dove Cameron is subtly changing her Ghost Spider voice from her Gwen voice, although I don't think that's the case :sweat:.

Happy 30th Anniversary to Nintendo Game Boy!
From what I heard, Lincoln Loud and the Ninja Turtles were supposed to appear during this year's KCA, but their scenes were cut for time. If anyone somehow has those clips, please post them for all of us to see. Oh, and Happy Easter!
Happy Easter! Hope everyone has a lovely (warm) spring day with their families.
I don't know if anyone's said this, but Happy Easter!
