An updated version of the classic animated adventure series. After being bitten by a radioactive spider, young Peter Parker finds that he now has spider-like super powers. Hoping to use his new-found abiilties for wealth and fame, he lets his ego blind him to the needs of others, and indirectly causes the death of his uncle Ben when he refuses to help a police officer catch a fleeing criminal. Humbled by his failure, he resolves to use his talents for fighting crime, and becomes the superhero Spider-Man. While he fights assorted super-villains, Peter also must balance his personal life, including his girlfriend Mary Jane, his job as a photographer at the Daily Bugle, and a an editor who has convinced himself that Spider-man is a criminal that has to be brought down.Written by

On this series, Harry Osborn has blonde hair, unlike the Spider-Man (2002) movie where he had brown hair or the comics where he had red hair. Photo of his father, Norman Osborn shows that he also had blonde hair as Harry and Norman have always shared the same type of hair. See more »
The episodes are numbered out of order. For instance episode 1.7 (Head Over Heels), happens before episode 1.1 (The Party), and episode 1.4 (Tight Squeeze) happens before episode 1.3 (Spider-Man Dis-Abled). See more »

Apart from the action scenes this simplistic, juvenile fare is basically a waste of time. I was excited to see this but felt disappointed by it's shallow plots and characters. The computer animation is understandably simple, which is OK in itself, but combined with an average script I felt I was watching an opening for a computer game and wished i could hit escape to just get on with the game. I watched 3 episodes of this new spider-man series but found myself just fast forwarding to the action scenes as the actual dialog is painful. The one liners voiced by our nimble hero do not embody what I would call actual wit, just plain stupid adages. I'm finished complaining now, I don't usually complain so much but am obliged to write 10 lines for some reason.
