One of Spider-Man's classic villains from the comics, Doctor Octopus appears on Peter and Mary Jane's television during a news segment on Spider-Man. Dr. Octopus' only line of dialogue is a faint grunt when Spider-Man punches him in their brief fight (episode 1.01 "Worlds Apart Part 1"). See more »
Spidey's outfit is cool and the first episode and theme tune are decent, but all there is in regard to this show...
I like Spider-Man a great deal, I do like the first two movies(the third not so much) and the 2003 show and I love the 90s series(haven't seen the 60s series in years though), but I have never liked Spider-Man Unlimited. I do think that Spider-Man's outfit is very cool if different, the theme tune is well done and the show does show a decent- and promising if done right- start. Unfortunately, what it promised in the first episode is not done right afterwards. The concept of putting Spider-Man on Counter-Earth just doesn't make sense to me, and the story lines generally do not engage, I found myself frustrated by its predictability and lack of sense. The writing is incredibly corny, especially with Spider-Man's "witty" quips. The characters I don't care much for, I actually found myself wondering what the point of Carnage and Venom was. Spider-Man himself is not charismatic enough and I really could have done with less of the wisecracks, while Peter Parker is just dull here. The voice acting is also lacking, Rino Romano does what he can but he could have been much more brooding, but the worst case was the laughably bad accent for the Green Goblin. The background music is over-bearing in alternative to the haunting style that you kind of expect. But other than the senseless concept and story lines the worst asset of Spider-Man Unlimited was the animation. The character designs for the animals and the villains, especially Carnage and Vemom, are just ridiculous that it hurts, and the colours are too many and too bright with not that much atmosphere evident. All in all, liked the outfit, the theme tune and the first episode, but everything else is incredibly disappointing, to me that is. 3/10 Bethany Cox
