A hub for the "Book of Masks" universe.
|"S02E04 "Black Cats and Crossed Paths"" is closely adapted from the Season One episode "A Day in the Life." I only made a few changes to it.
First, in the IRL-series's Season One, Peter has a kind of janitorial job at Horizon, and the theft occurred as he was cleaning up Max's office. So I had to alter the circumstances of the theft.
Next, I added a running gag/sub-plot about J. Jonah Jameson. It just seemed to me that the story needed a little more structure to it. It also made Peter's string of "bad luck" a little more stark, because Jameson is exactly the wrong person he should be colliding with when things go badly. But mostly I just thought it was a funny idea.
I also added Master Planner's appearance at the end.
And I changed the title. The IRL-episode had as its conceit that this was a "typical day" in the life of Peter Parker, with Black Cat's antics interrupting his classes and his time with friends. I got rid of that, and so the original title didn't fit it anymore.
I placed the episode here, immediately after "S02E03 "Spider-Man Behind Bars"" so that the events of that episode have time to rest before the sequel ensues.
