I watched an episode of this finally.
Can't say I liked it very much at all. :/
"Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely."
"With great power comes great responsibility."
Picked up the DVD of this show the other day and gave it a bash. Not bad -- seemingly geared for a young audience, but good for what it is.
I did not enjoy it as much as I enjoyed the previous animated effort, Spectacular Spider-Man. It's a shame that one bit the dust.
"The only thing true is what you do."
If Ultimate Spider-man was just Disney and it's creators making the show. I wouldn't care that much about it being bad. But, when you hear all who is making it. Then the real question of WHY happens. WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY?
I'm not really getting the complaints here. I look at what Spider-Man has been since 2008 to present and look at the show and the only difference I see is that Peter's younger.
This week's episode works if you think of it as a 22-minute distillation of zany buddy cop comedies where the free-wheeling rookie and the hardened veteran are forced to work together despite not liking each other very much and gradually grow to respect one another's capabilities while still being annoyed by one another and taking down the bad guy. In that respect, it's ok.
And as for greats like Paul Dini and Brian Bendis performing well below their established capabilities on this show, blame the same person most fans already blame for this show not being as great as it could be --- Jeph Loeb. Say it with me, with your mouth aimed towards the sky: LOOOOOOEB!
Back in black, the hunter is ready to claim his prey.
-Theyre trying to make him like deadpool, imagining wacky scenarios in his head during altercations and talking to the audience.
-His humor is farrr too immature and cheesy, truly cringeworthy stuff. I know Spidey has a history of cheesy jokes, but the joke being cheesy is part of his delivery, and not his real humor.
-He's using a motorcycle that shoots webs.....nuff said.
-There is no drama or romance, which are MAJOR staples in the Spidey mythos.
-He's part of a teen team of characters that are supposed to be adults when he was in high school(except for Sam) which bothers many fans, me not so much.
-The cut aways from current events to past events or imaginary events in Spideys head rivals those of family guy, constantly losing the plot in a mess of fast paced childish humor and intense action.
-Some fights go on for farrr too long.
-Spidey truly behaves like a douche. In the comics he makes mistakes unwillingly, but the show has him do things that any human being would know is a bad idea and will lead to trouble.
These are my main issues, none of which are elements of Spidey in the comics. I can truly see why people enjoy it, but I just cant after having enjoyed Spectacular.
