or "Spider-Woman In: Twerk Off The Dark!" In part three of our retrospective of animated adaptations, we look at the dawn of the Marvel Age Of Cartoons, from 1966 to 1979, as we ask ourselves just how loosely you can use the term "animation" before it loses all meaning. Who are the Allies For Peace, and why do they seem so familiar? What intervention from an animation legend led to Spider-Man tripping the light fantastic? Which second-string character unexpectedly has the greatest animated series you've never heard of? And just what is the nightmare known as Fleshman, The Living Flesh? To find out, well, you'll just have to listen!
