Brazil Censorship[]

General[]

  • The characters: War Machine and Carnage, appeared in two episodes of the cartoon. In the first one their names were translated into Portuguese, but the dubbing staff thought the names were inappropriate for the children and the dubbing of the second episode in which they appeared kept the names in English so the children could not understand them.

USA Censorship[]

  • In the episode "Duel of the Hunters", Kraven the Hunter tracks Man-Spider to the World Trade Center because of gunpowder residue in his webbing. He references a real-life bombing that occurred in 1993. However, after the September 11 attacks, when the WTC was destroyed, the reference was edited out of subsequent airings so that it is an anonymous parking garage.

Where to find it uncensored[]

Every other country has War Machine and Carnage's names translated or changed.
