New Animated Spider-Man Series Premieres This Weekend
Ultimate Spider-Man (Disney XD - Sunday, 11am) - In this animated action-adventure series from Marvel Animation, 16-year-old Peter Parker has been saving New York City from villains as his alter-ego Spider-Man for the past year, while juggling the typical growing pains of being a teenager at Midtown High School with best friends Mary-Jane Watson and Harry Osborn, who are oblivious to his secret identity.
As a renowned web-slinger, the young Spider-Man still has much to learn about being a super hero and does not yet have the discipline needed to develop and harness his extraordinary gifts.
When S.H.I.E.L.D. (Strategic Homeland Intervention, Enforcement and Logistics Division) Director Nick Fury offers Spidey the chance to hone his skills and train with the best, he accepts the opportunity in order to accomplish his goal of becoming the Ultimate Spider-Man.
