Trivia

  • Fans of the series jokingly nickname it "Marvel meets Totally Spies!".
    • As a comparison between both media, it's usually depicted as this:
      • Mary Jane = Sam.
      • Shadowcat = Clover.
      • Stinger = Alex.
      • Deadpool = Jerry.
      • Squirrel Girl = Britney.
      • Star-Lord = Blaine.
      • Sin and Black Cat = Mandy.
      • Klaw = Tim Scam.
      • Mandarin = Terry Lewis.
      • Mysterio = Mario.
      • Amora = Geraldine Husk
      • Leader = John Smith.
    • This gets more evident in the webshorts as it features voices who worked on it.
  • Mary Jane's personality is slightly different in this series, since she also adopts some characteristics usually attributed to Gwen Stacy, being notably absent on it.
    • She has also acquired some of Peter's butt-monkey status due to the fact that she and some of her teammates sometimes get captured and/or brainwashed, besides her rather unfortunate life at high school.
  • Unlike other incarnations, Sin has been considerably deaged into around the same age as the trio.
