Ultimate Spider-Man (TV Series) Season 1 Review

Ultimate Spider-Man tv series

As many of you know, Spider-Man is one of my favorite super-heroes. I had heard of the cartoon series that originally came out in 2012 based on the Ultimate Marvel comics version of Spider-Man, but never saw it until now. It features a teen-aged Peter Parker who is recruited by Nick Fury to join SHIELD in order to become a better super-hero.

Little does Peter know that Fury has set up a team for him to work with. They are the lesser-known heroes White Tiger, Iron Fist, Power Man, and Nova. Outside of being super-heroes, Fury has them attend Peter’s school. Agent Phil Coulson is also made their principal in order to keep an eye on them and their school.

So Spider-Man ends up joining a team of high-school Avengers, but also works alone. He’ll face lesser-known villains like Living Laser, Beetle, and Wizard along with legendary foes like Venom, Green Goblin, and Dr. Doom. He’ll also meet other legendary heroes like Wolverine, Iron Man, and Captain America.

Overall I really liked the first season of Ultimate Spider-Man. Though Peter Parker often acts more like Wade Wilson with constant jokes and goofy humor. I also thought that while it was good for them to show lesser-known villains and heroes, a lot of them are lesser-known because they’re rather lame. I also really didn’t like how they changed Venom as the symbiote is no longer from space, and the human it bonds with is not Eddie Brock.
