ultimate spider man kicks ass! anyone who says otherwise is a whiner who wants their 'spectaculer' spidey back.
I am so goddamn sick of people crapping all over this show and screaming how much 'spectacular spider-man was so much better'
... it wasn't. it really, really wasn't. I watched a good amount of the episodes when it premiered And there's nothing different. Why would I watch that when I could see the original 90's Spidey that adapted so many of the great stories from the comics, Spider-man unlimited with it's own unique storyline or even the cg Spider-man which used the movie as a jumping off point.
Ultimate spider-man uses elements from the original amazing spider-man comics and ultimate line story element to craft a story all its own of spidey's advancement to a new level. People constantly complain about the jokes, but that's spidey's thing. And even I can admit it gets grating at times, but trust me - it mellows out after the 1st season.
The story is completely serious when a two part event occurs with little to no joking. The spider-man character while seeming childish is probably the most mature peter parker I've ever seen. Watch the episode "Strange" and you'll know what I mean. It doesn't waste time on the bullshit Maryjane relationship, or really any teen drama whatsoever. It focuses on action and the comic book styled storytelling
... oh and the "great power and great responsibility" bit is said the least I have ever, Ever! Heard in any spidey series I have seen. You know why, cause this peter doesn't need to constantly telling himself that overused as hell line!
I love it. Even if it does have flaws, I still suggest checking it out. It's really great series just to watch spidey crack jokes and kick ass!!!
