Spidey and His Amazing Friends - BLACK CAT!

Disney Jr - Spidey and His Amazing Friends - Black Cat - Hasbro 2024

I'm very happy to see that Spidey and His Amazing Friends is still going strong since its Disney+ debut in 2021. The Spider-Man universe is fun and colorful with a diverse roster of characters that lends itself nicely to preschool programming. It's no surprise that the young audiences have embraced the show. As a collector, I've always been a fan of preschool toy properties. Action figures geared towards young kids existed in my youth, but they were scarce and nothing like we see today. My excitement over Imaginext (and the lack of collector-level content online) was a major inspiration for this webpage. Marvel has made several attempts to tap into the preschool market over the years (Marvel Superhero Squad and Marvel Superhero Adventures notably), but this Spidey line seems to have more momentum. This Black Cat is already the 6th female figure in the line, which is a rarity in a genre still plagued by the single-token-female trope). Plus I suspect there will be more. Let's check out Black Cat below!

Black Cat comes in the newest assortment of single-packed figures.

As far as potential new female characters for action figure treatment, both Wasp and Squirrel Girl have appeared in the show. Additionally, the currently-airing Season 3 will debut White Tiger and a new female version of Trapster.

Time for some Group and Comparison Pics!

Here are all the Spidey and His Amazing Friends ladies so far (excluding variants): 
Doc Ock, Ghost Spider, Black Cat, Ms. Marvel, Electro, and TWIRL-E.
