'''{{eps|Slave Island}}''' is the seventh [[X-Men Season One|episode]] of {{xm}} and originally aired March 6th, 1993. It was written by [[Mark Edward Edens]]. When the episode originally aired it's follow-up {{eps|The Unstoppable Juggernaut}}, was not yet ready to air. The cliffhanger ending did not end with a "To Be Continued" as the previous two episodes did while {{ep|The Cure|xm}} and {{eps|Come the Apocalypse}} were aired in its place.

'''{{smu}}''' is a series that ran from October 2, 1999 to March 31, 2001. It is the final series to air from the [[Marvel Animated Universe|1990s connected universe]]. It ran only for one season with [[Spider-Man Unlimited Episodes|thirteen episodes]] on [[Fox Kids]] ending on a cliffhanger despite episodes being written for more.
   
Following their capture in {{eps|Cold Vengeance}}, the [[X-Men]] wake up in a prison on [[Genosha]]. They are informed by a man calling himself [[Leader (Genosha)|Leader]] (Unknown), that they are to work to make the country great for him. They and numerous other captured [[mutant]]s are forced to wear inhibitor collars that suppress their powers while they build a dam for power. The Genoshans turn off the collars to allow them to use their powers to make the dam, and [[Storm]] ([[Iona Morris]]) uses the opportunity to try to escape. The guards quickly turn it on again and she falls into river rapids only to be captured by a [[Sentinel]] ([[David Fox]]). [[Bolivar Trask]] ([[Brett Halsey]]) orders her killed but [[Gambit]] ([[Chris Potter]]) convinces him that her powers would be useful for killing the reservoir after the dam is done. The Sentinel instead throws her in a cramped isolation box.
+
The series {{sm}} ended due to disputes between producer [[Avi Arad]] and head of Fox Kids [[Margaret Loesch]]. However, in order for Fox to continue airing the series the contract stated that thirteen more episodes featuring [[Spider-Man]] were to be made. [[Will Meugniot]] was brought on to produce a cheap series to fulfill the contract. The initial idea was to cheaply adapt early issues of ''The Amazing Spider-Man'' in a process known today as motion comics. During this time, [[Sony Pictures Entertainment]] purchased the film and television rights to Spider-Man from [[Marvel Entertainment]] (eventually making {{smtnas}}). This meant that the series could use Spider-Man/Peter Parker but could not use any of his supporting characters or stories.
   
The other mutants continue their work. But when a mysterious explosion goes off in the distance they are forced back into their cells. At the [[Xavier Mansion|mansion]], [[Cyclops]] ([[Norm Spencer]]) is worried because he contact the team members in Genosha while [[Jean Grey]] ([[Catherine Disher]]) tries to reassure him that Storm can handle things. Meanwhile, [[Jubilee]] ([[Alyson Court]]) sneaks out of her cell during a power outage and tries to convince the others to join her. However, neither Gambit nor any of the others want to come. Back at the mansion, [[Professor X]] orders the remaining X-Men to go to Genosha while he contacts [[Moira MacTaggert]] ([[Lally Cadeau]]) on Muir Island.
+
Briefly, the producers considered adapting ''Spider-Man 2099'', but with ''Batman Beyond'' being made by the critically acclaimed creator Bruce Timm they decided against something so similar. Marvel gave them a list of what they could use including [[Counter-Earth]], [[John Jameson]], [[Knights of Wundagore]], [[Deathlok]], [[Venom]], and various others. Meugniot's next proposal was to have Spider-Man go to Counter-Earth and fight a version of himself who never lost [[Ben Parker|Uncle Ben]], never learned humility, and never gained the strength to reject the [[Venom Symbiote|symbiote]] thus becoming Venom. Marvel turned down this idea as they did not want a series of two Peter Parkers following the poor reception of the [[Marvel Comics|comics']] series ''Clone Saga''.
   
The next morning, Gambit is missing while the other mutants agree to Jubilee's escape plan. She grabs the remote for the collars but find it's a decoy as the revolt has been tipped off. The mutants are quickly defeated and Jubilee is thrown into another box. At a nearby factory, Trask introduces [[Henry Peter Gyrich]] ([[Barry Flatman]]) to [[Master Mold]] (also Fox), an enormous robot that builds Sentinels but requires a massive amount of power. [[Cameron Hodge]] ([[Stephen Ouimette]]) and Leader note that once the dam is finished there won't be anymore blackouts. They then bring in the mutant who betrayed the revolt: Gambit, who says that the other mutants just want to use him.
+
With the series being rushed into production without a core story, the producers cobbled together the visual elements from ''2099'' and salvaged some parts from the previous premise. In the series, Spider-Man is blamed for the disappearance of John Jameson's shuttle to Counter-Earth by Venom and [[Carnage]]. Leaving behind [[Mary Jane Watson]], he travels to the parallel world in a new suit and meets up with John and the Human Resistance. He finds that the world is ruled by [[High Evolutionary]] and his [[bestial]] army, who have forced the humans there into second class citizens. He gets caught up in their war while the [[Synobtic]] take over of the planet as well as facing off against Counter-Earth versions of foes like [[Green Goblin (Counter-Earth)|Green Goblin]], [[Vulture (Counter-Earth)|Vulture]], and [[Electro (Counter-Earth)|Electro]]. While not originally meant as a continuation of ''Spider-Man'', it contained several references to the previous series.
   
On his way back to the prison, Gambit escapes when a mysterious man named [[Cable]] ([[Lawrence Bayne]]) saves him. Cable gives him a key to unlock the collars then disappears to confront Leader. At the factory, Leader explains that when he claimed to want to bring democracy to Genosha Cable joined him but when he revealed himself as a dictator Cable went off on his own to start a revolution. Gambit breaks Jubilee and Storm out of the prison then releases them from their collars. Cable attacks the factory going after Leader. The X-Men return to the dam and free the other mutants. Together they quickly overwhelm the guards while Storm is forced to stop [[Blob]] (Robert Calt) from killing the Genoshan commander. [[Sunfire]] ([[Denis Akiyama]]) refuses to help stop Master Mold and leads the ex-slaves into conquering Genosha.
+
[[Marvel Comics]] published a five-issue series based on the show. The first two issues adapted the first three episodes. The other three were original stories and featured elements from the original comics like Brute, the Counter-Earth counterpart to [[Mister Fantastic]], as well as Counter-Earth versions of [[Wolverine]], [[Gwen Stacy]], and [[Chameleon]]. The animated series was derided among critics and fans of both the comics and ''Spider-Man'' while being vastly overshadowed by ''Pokémon'' in the ratings. The series has since gained a minor cult following. The suit was included in the [[Spider-Man (2000 Video Game)|2000 ''Spider-Man'' video game]], allowing players to become invisible. An alternate version of the show was included in the comics' ''Spider-Verse'' series. It is included as part of [[The Walt Disney Company]]'s streaming service [[Disney+]].
 
Cable storms through the factory and finds Leader but is distracted by an unfinished Sentinel. Storm causes an enormous thunderstorm and destroys the dam causing a massive wave, only to be saved by [[Rogue]] ([[Lenore Zann]]). Cable confronts Leader and Hodge over the river. When Hodge threatens to shoot Cable, the wave comes crashing down on all three. The wave hits the factory washing away Master Mold and the Sentinels. The X-Men board the [[Blackbird]] and leave Genosha. Jean reassures Storm while Gambit warns that he may still be betraying Jubilee. The X-Men return to the mansion to find that it has been completely destroyed.

Spider-Man Goblin CE

Spider-Man Unlimited is a series that ran from October 2, 1999 to March 31, 2001. It is the final series to air from the 1990s connected universe. It ran only for one season with thirteen episodes on Fox Kids ending on a cliffhanger despite episodes being written for more.

The series Spider-Man ended due to disputes between producer Avi Arad and head of Fox Kids Margaret Loesch. However, in order for Fox to continue airing the series the contract stated that thirteen more episodes featuring Spider-Man were to be made. Will Meugniot was brought on to produce a cheap series to fulfill the contract. The initial idea was to cheaply adapt early issues of The Amazing Spider-Man in a process known today as motion comics. During this time, Sony Pictures Entertainment purchased the film and television rights to Spider-Man from Marvel Entertainment (eventually making Spider-Man: The New Animated Series). This meant that the series could use Spider-Man/Peter Parker but could not use any of his supporting characters or stories.

Briefly, the producers considered adapting Spider-Man 2099, but with Batman Beyond being made by the critically acclaimed creator Bruce Timm they decided against something so similar. Marvel gave them a list of what they could use including Counter-Earth, John Jameson, Knights of Wundagore, Deathlok, Venom, and various others. Meugniot's next proposal was to have Spider-Man go to Counter-Earth and fight a version of himself who never lost Uncle Ben, never learned humility, and never gained the strength to reject the symbiote thus becoming Venom. Marvel turned down this idea as they did not want a series of two Peter Parkers following the poor reception of the comics' series Clone Saga.

With the series being rushed into production without a core story, the producers cobbled together the visual elements from 2099 and salvaged some parts from the previous premise. In the series, Spider-Man is blamed for the disappearance of John Jameson's shuttle to Counter-Earth by Venom and Carnage. Leaving behind Mary Jane Watson, he travels to the parallel world in a new suit and meets up with John and the Human Resistance.
