A Puff of Responsibility Z is a 2018 Spider-Man/Powerpuff Girls anime crossover created by Max Carroll. A remake of A Puff of Responsibility, the series is a sequel to Demashitaa! Powerpuff Girls Z, being set one year after the events of the series. The story follows Peter Parker, a 15-year old intellectual from America, as he moves to the Japanese city of New Townsville, where, after being bitten by a genetically-modified spider whilst on a field trip, becomes the masked super hero known as Spider-Man. The series is mainly inspired by the Stan Lee/Steve Ditko run of The Amazing Spider-Man, with some elements being taken from Ultimate Spider-Man, The Spectacular Spider-Man animated series, and the Spider-Man movie trilogy.
Central Character(s) Edit
- Spider-Man/Peter Parker-A 15-year old transfer student from Queens, New York, Peter is socially inept, intellectual, and smart, but has several issues when talking to girls. He makes friends with Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, the former Powerpuff Girls, New Townsville's resident defenders, particularly Blossom because of her sweet nature, and takes a liking to Professor Utonium's son, Ken. However, when the group are on a field trip to Professor Utonium's laboratory in order to demonstrate a more controlled version of the Z Rays, Peter is bitten by a genetically-modified spider mutated by the Black Z Rays, causing him to zonk out. When Peter comes to, he discovers that he has gained spider-like abilities. He tries to cash in on them by entering into a wrestling contest in which he beats Buttercup's father, the Masked Wonder, with ease. He then goes on to star in a talent TV show, but when he is refused pay one evening by his emplyer, he lets an escaping thief go in retaliation. However, when Peter returns home, he witnesses that his Uncle Ben had been shot by a burglar. Seeking revenge, Peter then chases the killer down to a warehouse, only to witness that it was the thief that he had let escape before. Peter then vows to use his powers responsibly from now on and becomes the Spectacular Spider-Man, battling a succession of villains both new and old all across the city.
Powerpuff Girls Edit
- Blossom/Momoko Akatsutsumi-The self proclaimed leader of the Powerpuff Girls. Like the anime, she is boy crazy, especially towards Peter Parker, and has a sweet tooth. After the 11th episode, she becomes Peter's girlfriend. At the end of Season 2, she dies after her encounter with Venom. However, in Season 3, she is resurrected by the Jackal's cloning experiments. When in her civilian clothes, she dresses in a dark grey sweater with small white, pink and red hearts on the front, a frilly fuchsia and magenta skirt and dark brown shoes. Her weapon is her Yo-yo. At the beginning of the series, Momoko, like Miyako and Karou, doesn't have her powers. However, like the other girls, she regains them after an encounter with Otto Octavius, the criminal scientist Doctor Octopus, and his Six.
- Bubbles/Miyako Gōtokuji-A fashionista and a sweetheart who is always receiving love letters in school. When in her civilian clothes, she dresses the same as in the first 20 episodes of the anime, with a white long sleeved blouse, a blue skirt, white socks, black mary janes and a blue tie. Her weapon is a bubble wand. At the beginning of the series, Miyako, like Momoko and Karou, doesn't have her powers. However, like the other girls, she regains them after an encounter with Otto Octavius, the criminal scientist Doctor Octopus, and his Six.
- Buttercup/Kaoru Matsubara-The toughest member of the Powerpuff Girls. She is a major sports fanatic and hates girly stuff, including having to wear a skirt. When in her civilian clothes, she wears a black long sleeved turtleneck under a green t-shirt, blue jeans and a pair of white & green sneakers. Her weapon is her hammer. At the beginning of the series, Karou, like Momoko and Miyako, doesn't have her powers. However, like the other girls, she regains them after an encounter with Otto Octavius, the criminal scientist Doctor Octopus, and his Six.
Other Protagonists Edit
- The Lizard/Professor Utonium-A scientist employed by the mayor. A kind father to his son and father figure to the girls and Peter. Unfortunately, the Professor would be the direct result of some of Spider-Man's enemies and shortcomings. He was the creator of the genetically-modified spider which bit Peter Parker, turning him into Spider-Man. He later transformed himself into the savage Lizard after ingesting an experimental regenerative formula composed of reptilian DNA fused with White Z Rays. On another, more tragic, occasion, he ran tests on a sample of Spider-Man's DNA, accidentally creating the symbiote, which would go on to bond with not only Spider-Man himself, but the disgruntled student Eddie Brock as well, eventually transforming him into the monstrous Venom.
- Ken Utonium-The Professor's son. The Powerpuff Girls act like older sisters towards Ken while Peter acts like an older brother towards him.
- Poochie-Ken's talking robotic pet dog who can summon the girls and the boys and trigger their transformations. He can sniff out Chemical Z activity, but the scent can be masked. At the beginning of the series, Poochie doesn't have his ability to speak or sniff out Z Rays. However, an accident involving Otto Octavius, the criminal scientist Doctor Octopus, and his Six resulted in the return of the Powerpuff Girls and Poochie getting his voice and abilities back.
- Aunt May-Peter’s kind, loving, and supportive aunt. She eventually dies during Season 3 because of blood poisoning.
- The Mayor of New Townsville-The dim witted mayor of New Townsville.
- Miss Bellum-The attractive assistant to the mayor who does most of his work.
- Miss Keane-The kind and patient teacher to the girls and Peter.
- Kuriko-Momoko's hyperactive little sister. She is addicted to superheroes, particularly Spider-Man after he had saved her from the Goblin. She is a fan of the Powerpuff Girls and she likes Bubbles and Buttercup's Powerpuff forms, but not Blossom's. She constantly annoys Momoko. It is implied that she has a slight interest in Ken.
- Ichiro Shiragawa-Karou's eventual boyfriend and a rival-turned-friend of Peter's, Ichiro was once the school's local bully, often picking on kids for lunch money and other goods. This changed after the murder of Ben Parker, which caused him to sympathise with Peter. He later admitted his crush on Karou and the 2 have been dating since.
- Dexter Bennett-The vicious and grouchy publisher of the Japanese newspaper The Daily Byte. He is Peter Parker's boss and is obsessed with Spider-Man, prompting him to hire Peter to get pictures of the vigilante breaking the law. He constantly yells at his employees and smokes a pipe. Nevertheless, he pays Peter well for his freelance work and even lends a helping hand to the teenager in times of distress.
- The Goblin/Norman Shiragane-Although there are many levels of evil a villain can descend to, very few come close to even rivaling the evil of Norman Shiragane, the original Goblin. The primary antagonist of the entire series, as well as the adopted brother of Himeko and Miko Shiragane, Norman was born with a condition which made him mentally unstable. As a teenager, he became full blown vicious, even going so far as to believe that Himeko and Peter had a relationship, which drove him crazy. He eventually began a strong dislike for Parker. However, while on a quest for more power, Norman uncovered a small patch of Black Z-Rays covered by a rock. But upon removing the boulder, Norman was struck by a Black Z-Ray then transformed into a hideous, humanoid goblin-creature, and, after being completely driven over the edge, began to terrorize New Townsville as the psychotic Goblin, eventually landing him into conflict with Spider-Man as the fledgling super-hero's first villain. After his defeat at the hands of Spider-Man in their first confrontation, the Goblin would move on to trying to wrestle control from Wilson Fisk and become the Japanese Kingpin of Crime. It was Norman’s arrogance that would eventually lead to his death during a final confrontation with Spider-Man in the middle of Season 2. The "Goblin" name would eventually become a gimmick for his two adopted sisters Miko (who would later become the Hobgoblin) and Himeko (who later became the second Goblin).
- Doctor Octopus/Otto Octavius-An award-winning scientist with a PHd in nuclear physics, Otto Octavius eventually became schizophrenic as a result of exposure to the chemicals he worked around. He escaped the psychiatric ward he had been admitted to and became the super-villain known as Doctor Octopus, eventually falling into conflict with Spider-Man. It was because of Spider-Man that Octavius formed the Six coalition, consisting of several super-villains previously defeated by Spider-Man, in order to squash the web-slinger. However, after kidnapping Blossom, Bubbles, and Buttercup, as well as an accident involving Chemical Z, the girls were re-energized and transformed back into the Powerpuff Girls. Doctor Octopus is the Season 1 finale antagonist.
- Venom/Eddie Brock-Peter’s childhood friend, Eddie Brock attends the same school that Peter and the girls do. He strived to become a journalist. However, when Brock was fired from his part-time job of freelancer after being debunked by Spider-Man, he developed a seething hatred for the hero and set out to exploit him. When Spider-Man rid himself of the symbiote (a creature accidentally created by Professor Utonium from Spidey's own DNA) after learning that it was trying to corrupt him, it found and bonded to Brock. The symbiote then revealed that Peter Parker and Spider-Man weren’t pals; Peter Parker was Spider-Man. The two then completely bonded and became the poison to both Peter Parker and Spider-Man, for their Venom that would eat them from the inside out. On a side note, Venom is the only villain that Buttercup is visibly afraid of, as she was the first of Peter's friends to be attacked by the villain in her bedroom. Venom is the Season 2 finale antagonist.
- Electro-An electric eel that was hit by a stray Black Z Ray. Electro is man-sized, has arms and legs, and even speaks. He believed that he was destined for greater things and went on a crime spree, eventually falling into conflict with Spider-Man. It should also be noted that this version of Electro wears a costume almost identical to his comic book counterpart.
- The Vulture/Adrian Toomes-A former partner of Professor Utonium, electrical engineer Adrian Toomes was squandered out of a business deal by the Professor by accident. Believing it to be a form of retaliation, Toomes would eventually kidnap the Professor in broad daylight, eventually coming into battle with Spider-Man.
- The Kingpin/Wilson Fisk-The billionaire philanthropist by day, world-infamous Kingpin of Crime by night, Wilson Fisk was once the employer of the man who murdered Ben Parker in New Townsville. While not conducting business as usual in his home base in New York City, Peter Parker's hometown, Fisk frequently visits the other worldwide divisions of his company and criminal empire. It was at the Japanese division of his company where he encountered the first major threat to his criminal empire; Spider-Man. Later, Fisk would encounter the super-villain Goblin, who was trying to wrestle control from Wilson in order to become the Japanese Kingpin of Crime.
- The Sandman/Flint Marko-A criminal who evaded authorities by hiding on a beach. However, by doing do, he was hit by a lone Black Z Ray, which caused his body to merge with the sand under his feet. Able to control any amount of sand within his reach, Marko became the Sandman, and first fell into conflict with Spider-Man after robbing a jewelry store.
- The Rhino-A rhinoceros who was hit by a Black Z Ray, the Rhino is one of Spider-Man's most physically challenging opponents. During his fight with Spider-Man, the Rhino managed to throw the web-slinger into the same wrestling ring where he fought the Masked Wonder, prompting an unlikely team-up between Spider-Man and his old wrestling rival to take down the 11-foot, sentient rhino.
- Sergei Kravinoff/Kraven the Hunter-
