Show Summary

\"Though the world may mock Peter Parker, the timid teenager...it will soon marvel at the awesome might of Spider-Man!\"
Taken from cover of Amazing Fantasy, issue 15, the first appearance of Spider-Man

Spider-Man follows the adventures of Peter Parker, more commonly known as Spider-Man. He gained these powers by being bitten by a spider whose DNA was altered by neogenics. Peter, first, decided to use these new found powers to benefit himself, instead of helping others, though on one fateful night when he refused to stop a criminal who had just robbed the fight promoter’s office, he lived to regret it. The robber went on to break into Peter’s house. Peter’s Uncle Ben was awoken by the noise, so he got up to see what had happened and startled the robber, who fatally shot Uncle Ben. Peter found out what happened to Uncle Ben, and became determined to catch the murderer as Spider-Man. He caught him in a warehouse, where he learned that it was the robber whom he refused to stop. Spider-Man now lives by the words of his Uncle Ben, “With great power – there must also come great responsibility”, and lives to fight for justice, though even with his constant efforts to do good in the city, he’s constantly labeled as a criminal by the Daily Bugle, in which the editor, J. Jonah Jameson, is determined to expose Spider-Man as a criminal himself.

Villains

This series featured nearly every significant villain from the comic books to date, though the Sandman was unable to appear due to the feature-length movie written by James Cameron that featured Sandman and Electro as the lead villains. The writers for the series were instructed to not have the two foes appear in the series, so the writers did as they were told. The movie production ended up being canceled, leaving the series without an appearance of Sandman. However, Electro made an appearance in the fifth season \"Six Forgotten Warriors\" story arc.

Story Arcs and Guest Appearances

Spider-Man is known not only for its consistency with the comic books upon which it was based, but also its many crossovers with other Marvel heroes. Some heroes include Daredevil, Blade and Whistler, Iron Man and War Machine, Dr. Strange, the Punisher, and many more. Aside from Marvel heroes, a guest appearance from the creator of Spider-Man, himself, Stan Lee appeared in an episode of the series.
Many story arcs from the comics were also featured within this series, such as the \"Secret Wars\" saga, \"Spider-Clones\" saga, as well as a few others.
These listed aspects are what contribute to this series widely being accepted as the best Spider-Man series to-date.


 
Show Information

Spider-Man appeared in 1994 for on the FOX Kids Saturday morning block. The series is the currently the longest running Spider-Man series to-date with a total of sixty-five episodes, though as stated before, it’s primarily remembered for its crossovers and consistency with the comics. The series was popular from the start in 1994, motivating Marvel Films Animation to produce more episodes; however, FOX wasn’t interested in making anymore than sixty-five episodes, as that’s the amount that was agreed to be made on the contract for the series. Even with the series gigantic popularity at the time the series was nearing sixty-five episodes FOX was still focused on canceling the series, which is why it was canceled prematurely. A few years back, Disney bought the rights to both Spider-Man and X-Men, and aired the series previously on Toon Disney on weeknights and ABC Family Saturday mornings on their JETIX blocks, though it no longer airs on either channel. A few episodes were released on DVD (that are listed in the Merchandise section), though there has yet to be a seasonal DVD release on the series.
