You know it’s gonna be bad when the logline is “Black Cat is kidnapped”. It only gets worse in an episode that bizarrely casts edgy queer comedian Sandra Bernhard in a thankless girlfriend role for Scorpion, makes an evil baby the primary villain without being funny enough to pull it off, and backslides characters arcs for no reason. We speculate on what may have happened in the production process to create this mess, and theorize an alternate version centering Black Cat and the other women in the story that might have actually been good.

We’re watching Spider-Man: The Animated Series: season 4, episode 5: “Partners in Danger Chapter V: Partners”.
