Storyline

Peter Parker has a laboratory accident that changes his life. He finds himself with greatly increased strength, the ability to stick to walls to climb them without needing hand and footholds and a "spider-sense" (presented in this series as clairvoyance) that allows him to sense danger. Designing a costume and a webshooter that allows him to fire a strong artificial web, he fights crimes as Spider-Man. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Trivia

Unlike the comics, J. Jonah Jameson's abrasive, flamboyant personality was toned down. The character was portrayed as more avuncular and actually liked Spider-Man. In the comics J. Jonah Jameson hates Spider-Man with a passion and carries out a smear campaign that, at least temporarily, turned much of the gullible in the city against the hero. See more »

A great live action superhero series
28 October 2001 | by Indyfan82See all my reviews

I have caught this show in reruns on SCI-FI before, and I have to say I enjoyed it. Okay, so maybe the special effects aren't the best in the world, but it was still a fun series. Spider-Man has always been one of my favorite superheroes and I really enjoyed watching him fight crime in this series. I wish they could have brought in more of the supervillians for him to fight though. But it was still a fun series to watch.
