Spider-Man makes the jump to Avenger and it looks like the comic book ‘Spider-verse’ storyline might be coming to the show in the new season of Ultimate Spider-Man: Webbed Warriors.
BIG changes are in store for the Spider-Man wing of Marvel’s Cartoon Universe. Not only will the show be crossing over with Marvel’s Avengers Assemble cartoon (also on Disney XD) and casting the web-head as a member of the team (which he is in the comic books), but we’ll also get a multitude of new characters (including Agent Venom) and see the Spider-Verse storyline pop up in some form or another. In all, it looks like the show is moving from the ‘classic’ Spider-Man continuity into a more Marvel NOW! age with the character and story lines reflecting that.
If that means that we’re going to get stories that run concurrently (or just behind) what’s happening in the books, then you can count me in as that’s just a plain old great idea. I honestly never even really thought about that when I watched the ’90s Marvel set of ‘toons, but it just makes good sense to run the cartoons with timely subject matter that almost ties into the comics- not to mention that it seems like it’d be a lot of fun.
