The Incredible Hulk teams up with Red Hulk, She-Hulk, Skaar, and Rick Jones aka A-Bomb to battle the forces of evil in front of cameras for Rick's web-based series to show the Hulk is more hero than monster.
After an explosion at the school, the X-Men went their seperate ways. But they must unite once again under the leadership of Wolverine to prevent an inevitable war while also dealing with present problems.
It's been a year, and Spider-Man is still finding the superhero life is full of dangerous pitfalls and avoidable collateral damage. Fortunately, Nick Fury, Director of S.H.I.E.L.D., offers to fix that with a special training program that offers to make Peter Parker the Ultimate Spider-man. Now the quintessential superhero loner must learn to get along with a new team of superheroes as fellow students, both in his professional and personal life. Between those demands and the supervillains, life is as hectic as ever for the Webslinging Wonder. Written by

At the 2011 San Diego Comic Con, The Avengers were confirmed as guest-stars on "Ultimate Spider-Man", including Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, and The Incredible Hulk. This will be the first time that Spider-Man has teamed on-screen with The Avengers in an animated series since 2010's The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes and the first time Spider-Man and the Hulk have been on the same animated series since 1981's "Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends".

In the past Marvel has adapted it's comic characters very well to the small screen. Examples include X men the animated series and the Spectacular Spiderman. Now we have this series.
Not being a comic book fan I cannot compare how well this series has been translated from the comics but compared to the series that have come before it is a real disappointment.
If I hate this series so much why have I given it a 3 instead of a 1. I have done this for two reasons. Reason 1 the animation, I think it is very well done and the second thing is Venom. I kind of like what they did with Venom here, giving him a new origin compared to what they where doing before just giving him the same one in every other series which was making things a bit predictable.
Now for the bad things and my god there is a long list of things wrong with this. 1. the humour, maybe the jokes don't sit well with me because I am outside the age range for this cartoon but I think that they would only be funny really young kids who do not know any better. 2. The characters them selves are bland as hell and are not worth investing in what so ever 3.the Writing is for the most part lazy and drab. Most of the episodes (barring the ones with Venom) have next to no merit and are not worth your time.
So that is my opinion on this incarnation of the webslinger. If you just enjoy good animation and do not give two hoots about good writing and characters give it a watch otherwise, AVOID.
