Storyline

Orphaned schoolboy Peter Parker lost even his uncle, leaving him with old, semi-helpless aunt May. Trough a messed-up experiment with spider DNA, he acquires super-powers. But he only uses them when masked in a flashy costume as Spider-man, a mysterious dashing hero who defeats all crooks. As Peter, his life is far humbler, moonlighting as photographer for the Bugle.

Trivia

A third season was planned, however, the series ended up being cancelled due to the low TV viewership for season 2, DVD sales not meeting their demand and the TV show rights being reverted from Sony back to Marvel. According to Greg Weisman, had there been a third season, there would have been episodes that introduced the villains: Carnage, Hydro-Man, Scorpion, & Hobgoblin. While Norman Osborn's wife Emily Osborn would have made her appearance with Marina Sirtis in mind as the voice of the character. See more »

The Best Spider-Man Adaption Ever
17 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have seen everything spider-man and this show is the best there is. No other spider-man cartoon has come this close. They cover responsibility, humor and the action flowing in perfect rhythm. This is the most loyal adaption of the spirit from the comics as well. I have never seen it come together this good on TV. You see many of the popular villains and some of the not so popular ones and this is great. You see his personal life on a level that the comics brought out. The people that made this cartoon must of been serious fans. It is a real crime that they canceled this. The newest spider-man cartoon "Ultimate Spider-man" is the ultimate insult to all spidey fans.
