From Comics to Toons: Spider-Woman in Games of Doom (1979)

No, Dr. Doom doesn't figure in this Spider-Woman adventure, but in "Games of Doom", Spider-Woman (Joan Van Ark, Knots Landing) has to deal with a duplicitous, would-be conqueror who's using androids to take over the world. Or, at least he thinks he can get away with it.

Marvel never carried over Jessica Drew's occupation as a reporter-magazine publisher on the show into the comics. That was done because the origin she was given at the time was a little complicated for the SatAM crowd.

Rating: B-.
