Nova, Iron Fist, PowerMan and some of Spidey’s biggest baddies are on the way in the second season of Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon.
On his journey to become the Ultimate Hero, Peter Parker has handled tough challenges. From learning to team up with fellow Super Heroes (including The Avengers!), to fighting baddies from across the Marvel Universe, to remembering to pick up groceries for Aunt May, Spidey thought he had things all webbed up. Now in Season 2, his world’s been turned upside down as his teammates become roommates, and they’re left to face foes without the help of S.H.I.E.L.D. But when iconic Marvel villains like The Lizard, Kraven, Electro, the Rhino and Doc Ock team up to take on the young heroes, it’s time for Spidey to discover the “great responsibility” of being a leader. Catch the one-hour SPECIAL PRIME TIME PREMIERE of Ultimate Spider-Man Season 2, January 21 at 7p/6c on Disney XD. And keep up with the team every Sunday at 11a/10c inside Marvel Universe.
Putting Spider-Man in charge of a team kinda reminds me of the Spider-Man and his Amazing Friends show from years ago… and of course the classic Marvel Team-Up series (is that still around?). And I have to add that it’s pretty cool to see Wolverine in his old ‘brown and yellow’ outfit. I always had a soft spot for that costume.
Season 2 of Ultimate Spider-Man spins its web on Disney XD starting January 21st at 7pm (6pm central time).
