Just as teenage mutant Kitty Pryde is welcomed to the X-Men, the team of mutant heroes are called into battle to prevent Magneto and his Brotherhood of Evil Mutants from crashing a comet into the Earth.
Peter Parker, who one day gained the powers of a human spider due to exposure to a radiated arachnid in a school science experiment, continues his super-heroic battle against the forces of evil in New York City in this sequel to the original 1967-70 TV series. Less stylish than its predecessor, this short-lived revival pits Spider-man against such classic villains as the King Pin, the Vulture, the Green Goblin, the Sandman, and Dr. Octopus, as well as against criminals who didn't appear in the 1967-70 original, among them the Gadgeteer, Prof. Gizmo, Chameleon, and Dr. Doom.

My favourite Spider-Man shows were the late 1960's series and also Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends. However, this was a decent show as well.
The animation techniques had evolved since the late 1960's series and there were some exciting villains in it as well. My favourite episode was where Spidey was shrunk by a villain called the Gadgateer. All the top Spidey villains were here-the Kingpin, Green Goblin, Doctor Doom etc.
This had the best written episodes of any Marvel series in my opinion and the animation was top notch for it's time.
Just one more point; Why do great shows such as this never get released onto video whilst other rubbish gets every episode released onto video?
