Marvelous Animation Tour - Spider-Man (1981)

In 1981, Marvel simultaneously launched Spider-Man's second and third animated series, one being a solo series and the other starring some "amazing friends." The solo series proved the less popular of the pair and ran just 26 episodes during 1981 and 1982.

The series featured a slew of classic Spidey villains including the Green Goblin, Doc Ock, Sandman, and Black Cat, as well as staple Marvel villains Magneto and Dr. Doom. The short series run even made room for guest stars such as Captain America and Namor who would also be seen in the more successful sister series.

Smallville Welcomes Linda Lee

According to TVGuide.com, when Kara Zor-El makes her return to Smallville in the October 8 episode Supergirl, we may actually get a glimpse of the modern Supergirl costume as well as Kara's alter ego Linda Lee Danvers. I am not sure how fans will react to the idea of a costumed Supergirl appearing to the public before a costumed Superman, but at least we know tights and flights for the Man of Steel will be appearing very soon.
