    They canned a good show (Spectacular Spiderman) to re-tool and re-develop this franchise. So it damn well better be good. Come on Disney, show us your super hero chops.

      Ultimate Spiderman was the only good series in the Ultimate universe, so I’m willing to give this a chance. But if it turns out to be bad I’ll just sit around and complain about how Spectacular was better.
