Storyline

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 Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Very disappointing
20 July 2012 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

As I said in my Spider-Man (2002) review, I'm a big Spidey fan. I know a lot about him - I know about his lore, I know about his personality.

This show makes a complete mockery of everything Spider-Man. That's right, a mockery. A big theme of Spider-Man is "responsibility". The Spidey in this show? He doesn't know what responsibility is. There's just so much wrong with this show. I think, to be fair, I'll start off with the good: the voice acting. All the voices fit well. I LIKE Drake Bell as Spider-Man, I think he's a worthy successor to Josh Keaton's fantastic work in Spectacular Spider-Man. It's just that the guy has such a horrible script to work with, it squanders his talents.

Now, the bad. I already mentioned the script. Spider-Man's wit and humour has been completely murdered in favour of chibi humor for the anime generation, where he constantly breaks the fourth wall. Am I watching Deadpool? No, I'm watching Spider-Man, and that's not his type of humour.

Another bad point: what it's entire purpose is. And this show's purpose? TOYS. The whole situation reminds me of "The Batman" from the early 2000s. That show was marketed at children to sell toys, but it was actually a good show at points. This show? It's so obviously marketed for toys you can't even pay attention to the "plot" it attempts to have. They gave Spider-Man a MOTORCYCLE. A MOTORCYCLE. There's absolutely no need for that - if they gave Batman a motorcycle in his cartoon, it makes sense. He's Batman, he has to get around. Spider-Man has his web-slingers and can climb up walls - why in the WORLD does he need a motorcycle? Apparently S.H.I.E.L.D. thought he needed one.

And that's another problem - what this show is trying to do is make Spider-Man a part of S.H.I.E.L.D. and a big part of the Marvel universe, etc.. It doesn't work. Spider-Man is a character that has so much of his own lore, it creates its own universe. And by popping in in the Avengers or the New Avengers in the comics, it makes it special, especially since those are organizations that aren't a part of S.H.I.E.L.D. They're trying to shove all these different characters in, and it's just a waste. And putting him in a "teenage superhero" team is just such a bad idea to start. Also, this is something that actually offended me, because my father's friend's son is an amputee - they took Doc Conners, possibly the only normal amputee in the Marvel universe...and gave him an arm. Why would you do that? It's the icing on the cake. This is a horrible show, with bad humour, bad characters, and it is definitely not a worthy successor to the fantastic Spectacular Spider-Man.

Don't watch this. If you wanna see Spider-Man interact with Marvel characters, just watch Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, because he shows up sometimes.
