Mary Jane Watson / Thundra (voice)


A year after becoming Spider-Man, teenager Peter Parker is confronted by Nick Fury, director of S.H.I.E.L.D., who offers him a chance to train with S.H.I.E.L.D., to become the Ultimate Spider-Man and join a team of superheroes that is being assembled. At first declining the offer, Peter soon realizes that he may need Fury's team of heroes in order to fight the threats he faces when the Frightful Four (consisting of Wizard, Thundra, and Klaw) attacks Midtown High on Doctor Octopus' and Norman Osborn's orders, having discovered (thanks to Frightful Four member the Trapster, whom Spider-Man incarcerated) that Spider-Man's alter ego attends the school.

Just like my childhood, in that I feel like I keep getting punched in the face
23 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know where to begin. This show...

Okay, I could take X-Men Evolution. I could even tolerate X-Men Origins: Wolverine. I made it all the way through the mid-90's Spider Man cartoon. I grew up watching the corny 70's Spider Man cartoons, including the 'Amazing Friends' one.

This show is so terrible, I COULD NOT WATCH IT!! It's like they decided to take everything likable about Spider Man and flush it away so they could cram in enough Avengers movie name-drops and Nick Fury screen time without actually making an Avengers or Nick Fury cartoon. Then they decided to give Peter Parker these exposition narratives with intentionally terrible animation and ungodly unfunny cartoon visuals. MJ has been replaced by a teenage Lois Lane. J. Jonah Jameson is Bill O'Reilly. The first super-villains we meet are lame even for Spider Man villains. And, the final slap in the face, Spider Man is leading a small team of teenage super heroes. The music is pretty stupid, the flashy animation attempts to mimic comic book style but only serves to bring the story to a screeching halt. I just... God, every time it looked like it might get better it derailed into pointless exposition and unfunny slapstick.

My childhood continues to be raped. Won't someone please abort this thing before it gets any worse?
