The Iron Cross Army has found a poison to kill spiders, and if it kills
spiders, the poison is supposed to kill Spider-Man (Shinji Toudou) as well,
right? To lure Spidey out of hiding, the Iron Cross Army kidnaps young
Ichiro, the boy whose life Spider-Man saved once giving him some of his
own blood (episode Spider-Man - Thundering Machine GP7!
An Oath of Brothers). The plan works of course, and soon enough,
Spidey is dying from the poison, but then young Ichiro, knowing only his
blood can save him, insists to donate his blood to save Spider-Man.
rest of the story is routine: the Iron Cross Army kidnaps Ichiro again, a
recovered Spidey saves him, then one of the Army's monsters grows to giant
size and Spider-Man's robot Marveller/Leopardon destroys the monster.
cheesy episode, and not cheesy in a good way. Also, the story is so
predictable it completely lacks tension.
