This toon is fine. It's not great, and for my personal taste, it's not even really that good...just...fine. The plots are rushed and extremely surface-level, and there are a lot of inconsistencies that I can't even imagine younger teens being willing to overlook, much less an adult viewer. The insertion of multiple characters per episode, and new ones in each new episode may excite fanboys and fangirls who just want to see all the fight and flash, but in relation to plot, it just feels like they're all thrown in there to sell toys and breakfast cereal. It's not cohesive, and they treat you like a 5 year old one moment, while discussing vaguely correct scientific terms, the next. I understand we live in a faster-paced world than the one these characters originally matured in...but I feel this is dumbed down & sped up, to the point of not being worthy of the attention of a discerning viewer. On the positive side, it's easy to watch and does have decent quip-writing, at times, and the pace fits Spider-Man, fairly well, if you don't have any real interest in story. If you can just turn your brain off and enjoy the existence of it, then it will at least be good background noise. Again, I am not the demographic...so I guess that's OK. If you have kids...watch this with them. They will enjoy it, and you probably won't hate it.
