Storyline

After being bitten by a radioactive spider, young Peter Parker finds that he now has spider-like super powers. Hoping to use his new-found abiilties for wealth and fame, he lets his ego blind him to the needs of others, and indirectly causes the death of his uncle Ben when he refuses to help a police officer catch a fleeing criminal. Humbled by his failure, he resolves to use his talents for fighting crime, and becomes the superhero Spider-Man. While he fights assorted super-villains, Peter also must balance his personal life, including his girlfriend Mary Jane, his job as a photographer at the Daily Bugle, and a an editor who has convinced himself that Spider-man is a criminal that has to be brought down.

Trivia

During the middle of the 5th season of Spider-Man, Fox Kids was thinking about keeping the series on a little longer but then Marvel and Fox Kids decided to ended after 5 seasons and show a 2-hour series finale. The reason why Fox Kids and Marvel canceled the show had nothing to do with ratings. The reason was the fact that Saban Entertainment wanted to Marvel's animation for their cartoon series. So after Spider-Man was canceled, Marvel and Saban made another cartoon that continued where Spider-Man left off, the series was called Spider-Man: Unlimited. See more »

One of my favorite cartoon action shows!
21 May 2004 | by (Kansas City, MO) – See all my reviews

I thought this show was a really good show because Spider-Man is one of my favorite Marvel comic book superheroes and I liked his powers! I remember that me and my sister would watch the reruns of this show when it came on after the Disney Afternoon and then on Fox Kids Weekday Afternoon Block Schedule and when this show aired episodes on Fox Kids Saturday Mornings that were new back when this show was showing new episodes. This show is based on the Spider-Man comic books where photographer, Peter Parker who is also a former high school student who is really Spider-Man that fights web-slinging crime on the streets of New York City! I can't believe this show was canceled right before Spider-Man can start the search for Mary-Jane. My favorite Spider-Man villains are Venom, Shocker, Dr. Octopus, Hobgoblin, Green Goblin, Carnage, Kraven the Hunter and The Lizard. Plus the voice acting for this show is very good like Edward Asner who plays the voice of J. Jonah Jameson does a excellent job at providing the voice of J. Jonah Jameson! Plus Edward Asner is a Kansas City native like me! Another thing I liked about this show was that it had great animation along with the computer animation and other of Marvel's famous superheroes make appearances in a few episodes like the X-Men, Daredevil, Captain America, The Fantastic Four and Iron Man. I don't think the Incredible Hulk make an appearance in this cartoon. Plus I also think that Mary-Jane and Black Cat are hot!

User Rating: 8/10

BOTTOM LINE: GREAT SERIOUS OUT OF A COMIC BOOK ALONG WITH EXCELLENT ANIMATION!
