“Taste the Honey! The Sweet, Sweet Honey!”
What celebration of Swarm would be complete without a nod to his appearance on Spider-Man & His Amazing Friends? That’s right, Crawl Spacers! Few villains have reached outside the comics to busy-bee themselves around various Marvel media. The fifth episode of Amazing Friends brought Swarm – or at least a toned down take for the kiddies – to television sets everywhere in 1981.
Sure, there’s some changes. The Nazi skeleton’s gone. I can already hear you: “Why the hell bother then, Berryman?” It’s still a fun appearance. Swarm’s genesis is space-related this time around. Oh and he doesn’t talk nearly as much. And when he does talk he refers to himself in the third person. Did I mention he shoots energy beams from his eyes?
Anyhoo! Here ’tis! Hope you’re all enjoying being a drone in Swarm’s master plan today! Mwahaha!
