Your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man begins a new saga starting Fall 2011 on Disney XD’s Ultimate Spider-Man.
The new series will chronicle the adventures of naive high-schooler Peter Parker as he comes to grips with his new powers.
Along with his new powers, the challenge for the young web-slinger in the new series is balancing his relationships with his friends and family and his super colleagues who can help him gain an understanding of his parent’s legacy and his destiny.
“Ultimate Spider-Man will be a unique journey exploring our favorite web-slinger as he teams up with other fan favorite Marvel Super Heroes in never before seen stories with a new life filled with great challenges, new friends, intense action and character growth,” said Eric S. Rollman, President of Marvel Animation.
What does the “XD” part of Disney XD stand for? Or is that just a marketing psyche thing to get older “hip” kids into this? Like how they market cars.
so to take Mr. Rollman’s quote and put it through translation; “We want to retell the story of Spiderman for the 52nd time, an when I say following his unique journey I mean we will be using the same story as the other 51 stories have told it, only Aunt May will be a MILF.”
Know what I’d like to see? A Spiderman series where Peter Parker lives in Worcester, MA, goes to Quinsig Community College, and lives with a Hispanic family from the Dominican Republic. He tries the bar scene, only to get mixed up in fights, and works weekends doing yard work.
