Show Summary

The newest addition to the Spider-Man franchise, Ultimate Spider-Man is loosely based on Brian Michael Bendis' comic book series of the same name, following the adventures of a "redefined" Peter Parker who is still in high school and has only been Spider-Man for a year. When Nick Fury (director of peacekeeping agency S.H.I.E.L.D.) offers Spidey a chance to receive special training, Spider-Man must learn to work with other teenage superheroes if he wants to become "The Ultimate Spider-Man." The web-slinger will face his share of villains, but at the same time will come to terms with his new powers and get to know his own destiny.

  • Ultimate garbage

    1.0
    They made peter parker an cheap rip off of deadpool!!!!!!What else i need to say.
  • Kind of does`nt feel like the other spidermans

    5.0
    This show is`nt 100% original. First of all, it feels like the Avengers 2.0, only it`s with younger heros who try to have a normal life outside of fighting crime. Also, the shows ideas of random gags reminds me of something. When this shows Spiderman makes jokes or does a random cartoon moment, it feels like Family Guy, so it makes the serious moments feel more akward. The show can also feel too uptight. Nick Fury is one of those Big Brither privacy invaders who has to know what his heros are doing 24/7. I`d rather watch a Shadow the Hedgehog adventure than this show. (But itsnot the worst show I`ve watchedmoreless
  • Based on the kids comic Ultimate Spiderman not the adult comic

    10
    This show is based on the Ultimate Spiderman comic that is released for kids. It has no continuances and leaves out the adult theme. My 9 year old has a subscription to it and it is honestly more closely to the comic than any other comic based show out there. Don't expect it to be like other Spiderman shows because it was made for kids. A comic book made for kids, Huh. Go figure. Judging it from that standard I think it is perfect. If you want an adult cartoon about spiderman you will have to look somewhere else.moreless
  • I can see why they did it, I think they went too far

    5.0
    I'm relatively new to Spider-man stuff, this was the first Spider-man series I've watched, but I watched it have read reviews telling me to keep away.



    I can't help but the feel is action and pacing are cast aside for sequences that remind me of Teen Titans, except not used so sparingly. Not to mention the constant breaking of the 4th wall, it comes across as rather silly.



    And because it has plenty of characters to deal with on the hero side, the alter-egos and acquaintances are rather shallow characters.



    Having gone back and watched the Spectualar Spider-man to compare, there's no doubt that Spectacular is a much better series.



    But I do like that they're giving us the sense of a much wider universe by incorporating SHIELD, the Hulk, Thor, etc. (although perhaps it would've made more sense to set up more of Spider-man's rogues gallery before adding Living Laser, Loki or Mesmero to the mix)moreless
  • Inferior storytelling...

    2.0
    I can tolerate the times when Spiderman breaks the fourth wall, and honestly, the animation in this show is top-notch. However, Ultimate Spiderman spends too many episodes making Spidey fit into a crime-fighting team, and the nature of Spidey's power-ups are so simplistic - either he is given new equipment to play with, or he is exhorted by Nick Fury or Agent Coulson to be more grown-up in the way he makes his choices. The latter part is not believable since Nick Fury and SHIELD essentially reduced to taking care of teenagers, something normally done by parents, friends and school. There really isn't a lot of meaningful believable character development going on in this show.



    Spectacular Spiderman, on the other hand, had to contend with a lot of issues: the constant money problems at home and Spidey's attempts to help Aunt May keep the household finances afloat, balancing his time crime-fighting and his social life as Peter Parker, the ways his school friends and Aunt May helps him keep his head straight amidst the various difficulties in his life. The show even takes the time to go through, not just Peter Parker's the character development, but also the character development of the people important in his life, including his enemies in this show.



    Both Spectacular and Ultimate Spiderman have a lot of funny moments, but Ultimate Spiderman comes across as more shallow in terms of storytelling despite its better animation.moreless
