Sins of the Fathers Chapter 1: Doctor Strange - S3-E1

Revealing mistake: When Mary Jane and the other servants of Baron Mordo are flying through the city, they literally disappear into thin air. Probably a problem with rendering the 2D animation within the 3D animation. (00:01:00)

Sins of the Fathers Chapter 6: Framed - S3-E6

Plot hole: After Peter Parker is framed and arrested for selling government secrets to foreign organizations, he escapes police custody and goes home to retrieve his Spider-Man costume that was simply hanging in his dark room. If he was arrested for selling government secrets then surely the police would have searched his home and found his costume (as well as equipment) in the process. Since the police car was visible in front of his house, it seems very strange that police didn't search his home.

Six Forgotten Warriors Chapter 4: The Six Fight Again - S5-E5

Factual error: When Kingpin has Robbie dangling from a helicopter, Spider-Man jumps onto the helicopter and tells Kingpin he promised to release Robbie, to which Kingpin replies sardonically with "And so I shall." Neither of these two should be able to hear each other over the helicopter rotors. Spider-Man doesn't possess super hearing and Kingpin is a normal human.

Neogenic Nightmare Chapter 11: Tablet of Time - S2-E9

Factual error: When Peter is walking Alissa home, the traffic signal at the intersection they stop at goes from red to yellow to green. Not what US traffic signals do - they go straight from red to green.

Suggested correction: Not entirely true; although they are rare and may no longer exist now, I've seen traffic lights that followed the red, yellow, green pattern as recently as the mid-1990s.

Interesting. What state (s) did you see this in? I'm assuming going from red to yellow was to encourage cars to cautiously enter the intersection in case someone was running a red light?

In Illinois; as I said, such traffic lights are rare, but they did exist at least as recently as the time this episode of the series aired, and they may still possibly exist in larger cities such as New York City.

Traffic lights in the UK do this - it's more to give you a second to get ready, in gear, etc., then as soon as the lights turn green you can go. Otherwise you get no warning of when the lights are about to change.

Neogenic Nightmare Chapter 5: Mutants Revenge - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: After Wolverine is knocked unconscious by the voltage of the cage that Beast is trapped in, Beast is able to keep Wolverine from falling into the vat of chemicals below the cage by gripping the fabric of Wolverine's costume. Once the fabric tears away, Beast is able to grab Wolverine by the hand. Once he loses grip, Wolverine is able to grab onto the cage itself. When Genevieve starts shooting the laser gun at the Hobgoblin, Beast is again shown to be holding Wolverine by the fabric of his costume. (00:08:30 - 00:12:05)

Neogenic Nightmare Chapter 4: The Mutant Agenda - S2-E4

Continuity mistake: When Spider-Man is battling the X-Men, he shoots webs at all of them, which they remove. Later when Spider-Man is in Xavier's study with the X-Men, Gambit is shown removing a piece of webbing from his right arm, even though he had already removed it earlier. (00:02:15 - 00:04:30)

Sins of the Fathers Chapter 8: The Ultimate Slayer - S3-E8

Factual error: Despite being a paraplegic, when Smythe is about to be lowered into the vat of chemicals, his legs are pretty toned and muscular. The show implies that Smythe had been wheelchair-bound for a long time, so even if he had muscular legs prior to his paralysis, the muscles would have atrophied.

Sins of the Fathers Chapter 3: Attack of the Octobot - S3-E3

Factual error: When Spider-Man and Doc Ock are talking in the lab, at one point, a shot of Doc Ock's face shows Spider-Man reflected in each side of his sunglasses. However, Doc Ock's glasses have a singular lens, and the straight angle of Spider-Man's reflections suggest that the glasses are in no way curved, so Spider-Man should only be reflected in them once.

Neogenic Nightmare Chapter 6: Morbius - S2-E6

Factual error: When Morbius is comatose at the hospital after reverting to his human form following his battle with Spider-Man, he is still wearing his trenchcoat, pants, boots, etc. The hospital staff wouldn't leave him in his outfit, they would dress him in a hospital gown. On top of that, he isn't even hooked up to any monitors.

Revealing mistake: The same shot of debris falling from the ceiling in Baron Mordo's lair is used twice. (00:14:25 - 00:15:45)

Neogenic Nightmare Chapter 5: Mutants Revenge - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: The same shot of Beast looking dejected after Spider-Man calls him "blue boy" is used again a few minutes later when Wolverine is telling Spider-Man that he doesn't have to carry his burden by himself. (00:16:15 - 00:19:15)

Neogenic Nightmare Chapter 5: Mutants Revenge - S2-E5

Revealing mistake: The shot of Hobgoblin tossing pumpkin bombs at the ceiling inside Landon's lab is a recycled shot from the previous episode when he tossed bombs at the ceiling inside the auditorium. (00:12:05)

Sins of the Fathers Chapter 9: Tombstone - S3-E9

Tombstone: Come down here and fight like a man.
Spider-Man: I don't suppose I could convince you to come up here and fight like a spider.

The Alien Costume: Part 1 - S1-E8

Trivia: When Peter Parker is testing the costume changing capabilities of the symbiote, he suggests "that guy from Aerosmith," and materializes a suit similar to what Joe Perry from Aerosmith wears. Joe Perry composed the theme song for this show. (00:14:20)

More trivia for Spider-Man

Show generally

Question: Was the script for the sixth season written before this show was cancelled?

Answer: Yes. Many things that would have been in the sixth season would have had Norman Osborne returning from limbo and reclaiming the title of the Green Goblin, Richard Fisk, the son of "The Kingpin" Wilson Fisk would return as a crime lord known as "The Rose", Ghost Rider would have appeared to help Spider-Man stop Dormammu from returning to Earth and Madame Web and Spider-Man would rescue Mary Jane from limbo.
