Ultimate Spider-Man TV series

On April 1st 2012, this new animated Spider-Man series started airing on the Disney XD channel . The setting of the series is in the Ultimate Universe, where Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. knows Spider-Man’s true identity, Mary Jane is Peter’s childhood friend and Peter Parker attends Midtown High. The thing with this particular  Spider-Man is that while he may have the ability to stop the bad guys, problem is that the combat area seems to end up looking like a huge mess.  The Agency is also giving the wall crawler quite a bit of tech.

While I was watching the first two (of the 26 scheduled) episodes, the comedic sequences of the show reminded of  Teen Titans, just more talking to the viewers. Spider-Man is also teaming up with other marvel characters Nova, Iron Fist, White Tiger, Power Man, a 5-member team just like the Teen Titans cartoon.

There are some notable people providing voices for the characters…

  • J.K. Simmons reprises his role as J. Jonah Jameson
  • Tara Strong as Mary-Jane Watson
  • Matt Lanter (Anakin Skywalker in Clone Wars animated series)  as Flash Thompson and Harry Osborn
  • Stan Lee as Stan the Midtown High Janitor
  • Clark Gregg reprising his role as S.H.I.E.L.D. agent Phil Coulson from the Marvel Live-Action movies

With Brian Michael Bendis and Paul Dini on the production team as Writers/Producers, I hope to at least look forward to an entertaining series.
