The Iron Cross Army steals a couple of mummies from the Amazon from a
local museum. The mummies are actually warrior fgirls from 10 million
years ago (!), who occasionally like to dress up as Catholic nuns.
Spider-Man (Shinji Todou) is desperate to find the mummies, but nobody has
the first clue where they could be - nobody but a young boy who is a bit
on the cowardly side and therefore bullied by everyone. Spidey befriends
the boy, who then leads him to the mummies - but it was all just a trap by
the Iron Cross Army to capture Spider-Man, and before long, he is
seriously injured ... when the young boy musters up enough courage to lure
the Iron Cross Army away from Spidey so he can heal. And ultimately,
Spidey defeats not only the Iron Cross Army yet again, he has also made
the boy a better, more courageous man ...
There are several
nice aspects in this episode: The mummified girls in their cheap but kinky
outfits are fun at least, and the fact that they dress as Catholic nuns
and carry guns after 10 million years of hibernation is smile-inducing at
least. Also, the guest monster, a tiger-themed robot, is hilarious.
despite all that, the episode focusses on Spidey making friends with yet
another boy with some cheesy backstory, and that's never a good sign in
this series, so don't expect much ...
