The evil Iron Cross army wants to get their hands on Yoko, a little
girl they believe can predict the future.
In a seemingly unrelated
story, Yoko hires Takuya (Shinji Todou) as her tutor, because she thinks
he would make a good detective, and she wants him to find out whether or
not her parents are her real parents. Then the Iron Cross Army kidnaps
Yoko, and Takuya, who is of course secretly Spider-Man, first goes to
great length to find out that she has indeed been adopted before doing
anything to save the girl.
The 'Iron Cross Army meanwhile finds out that
Yoko is actually not the girl who can predict the future, it's only a girl
who looks like her who has died some time ago, and now Amazoness (Yukie
Kagawa), the army's second-in-command, wants to kill her to have her
revenge - but Spider-Man and Yoko's (foster-)parents do their best to save
her ... and succeed. And now Yoko has learned that even though her parents
may not be her natural parents, they are indeed her real parents ...
is not too much commendable about this episode, the story makes very
little sense and is not even well-told, and the ending is overly cheesy
... but at least the episode's guest monster, called Primitive Man - a
weird, very pseudo neanderthal carrying a club - is fun ...
