After an explosion at the school, the X-Men went their separate ways. But they must unite once again under the leadership of Wolverine to prevent an inevitable war while also dealing with present problems.
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.
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

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 »

While it does use the Villain-of-the-Week scenario, I don't think this detracts from the success of the show. The animation is spectacularly done: it captures Spider-Man's motions with a McFarlane-esque fluid grace that has only ever been accomplished in comic books.
The villains themselves are modern: don't look for Electro to wear that laughable starfish mask!
What I like most about this series, though, is that the character of Peter Parker/Spider-Man portrays a lot of the duality and pathos that has made the character so popular over the years; here's a teenager with everyday problems and even superpowers out the ying-yang doesn't help him hold a job or get a passing grade. He's very... human.
What I don't like: the Harry Osborn and Indie characters. Harry's very 2-dimensional and his hatred for Spider-man (carried over from the movie) feels forced, it's more like the hatred one reserves for a rival sports team than the man who killed your father. He also flip-flops between brooding and vengeful to aloof playboy (for the love of God, pls stop swirling martinis!!!). Indie just feels out of place. A character they dreamt up but didn't have any other place to put her.
I love the series, I hope to see more, deeper stories and moreover, I hope this is a sign of cartoons to come!!
