Comments: Created by Jeff Scott and
DePatie-Freleng Productions (see Appearances list for list of artists
The Hotepians' typical skin color
was impossible to determine as they were all covered in bandages.
Apparently in the Spider-Woman cartoon,
being mummified means being wrapped in "space bandages" that can be
easily removed provided one is not totally covered? Why do the
Hotepians flee after Spider-Man webbed the main ship? Maybe no longer
being a pyramid
shape means the Hotepian ships lose power?
-For that matter, why does one ship's transformation from pyramid shape to cube shape disrupt all of the Hotepian ships and if they were all defeated, how did they fly their ships back into space? --Proto-Man
I apologize for
the quality of the images but the best I could do was take screen
captures from a TV recording of the episode. The Spider-Woman cartoon series isn't exactly on HD
blu-ray or even on DVD in the US. --Proto-Man
