    Both are great shows, but which is superior?

    Spectacular is overrated. TAS, despite being the earlier series, was much better.

    Spider-man the animated series wins via Flawless Victory and Fatality. (Aka: Spectacular Spider-man sucked)

    This is a close one! Both shows are proper amazing, but I think the animated series just beats Spectacular, at least for know! But who knows what Spec Spidey will throw at us in the coming seasons?

    The Spectacular Spider-Man. I grew up in the 90's series, but this is just much better.

    Hmm, this is tough; I'll have to say it's a tie. I grew up in the 90s, but Spectacular has been doing an incredible job as well. Both shows have been faithful to the comics while also adding their own unique twists to change it up a little. The character designs for both shows have some better then the other and some worse then the other. Both shows have flaws, but are still entertaining and fun to watch. If Spectacular ever does get 5 seasons like the 90s series, then it will be a better comparrison (although the 3rd season is still up in the air).

    This series is better, but I wouldn't call it a landslide. The writing is so much more sophisticated, intelligent and this Peter Parker is, don't take this the wrong way but, absolutely my idea of the perfect boyfriend. I'm pretty sure I measure all my real past and future boyfriends to his standard. He is smart, funny, and completely loyal to Mary Jane. Why can't I meet a guy like him in all except being just a drawing and fictional character?

    The 90's Spider-Man wins, no question. I just found that with Spectacular they were retreading too many stories that had been told so well in previous Spider-Man series, without giving them their own, unique and fresh twist; the "Alien Symbiote" 3-parter I found, aside from a few scene's inside Peter's head where we could see the fight between Peter Parker and Venom, was almost a carbon copy of the 90's "Alien Costume" 3 parter.



    Plus I never found the animation in Spectacular to be anywhere near the level or quality of the 90's show. The design and art was just so blahhhh!
