Storyline

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.

The Spiderman Of My Youth.
2 February 2014 | by (Kenya) – See all my reviews

When I was young, I used to wait for this show on TV, after I came home for school. In my opinion, this is among the finest Spiderman shows I have ever watched.

In this series, Peter Parker having to balance his alter ego crime-fighting with his responsibilities as a university student, a part-time photographer for the Daily Bugle and caring for his elderly Aunt May Parker.

The show features Spiderman battling villains such as Chameleon, Doctor Doom, Doctor Octopus, The Kingpin, The Lizard, Sandman, Silvermane, Vulture, Mysterio, Magneto, Red Skull, Kraven the Hunter, Wizard, Sub-Mariner, Black Cat, Medusa, and the Green Goblin. Thus providing the viewer with plenty of comic book villains.

This series spawned a spin-off Spiderman And His Amazing Friends.
