A young man with spider-like abilities fights crime as a superhero in New York City while trying to have a normal personal life.
Producer/Story Editor John Semper felt most of the women in the Spider-Man Universe were two-dimensional and there were not many strong women in Spider-Man lore until the late 80's. He really wanted to bring strong women into this series and felt, symbolically Aunt May would be a good place to start. In the series, she is not the dottering and weak [as she's portrayed in the comics], but fully capable of taking care of herself. Felicia Hardy had always been a pretty strong character, but in this series Semper added the fact she's wealthy and that she has a whole new way of looking and behaving. They were also playing Mary Jane as a much stronger and interesting character. In the comics she was pretty much all over the place; from party girl/bimbo to bad girl and then as sort of yuppie wife. But in order to do good dramatic stories, they felt they had to lock the character in one way. They made her a drama student who knows her own mind, and as the episodes have unfolded, developed her into someone who is very adventurous and aggressive.
Subtetly is not your strong point, is it?
