Why is this show even called Ultimate Spider-man? The only thing "Ultimate" about it is black Nick Fury. Spectacular Spider-man was more "Ultimate" than this.

I just think a lot of people, not me, had a problem with the character models. TBH, while the USM animation is good I do understand when some people say it looks boring. Personally I don't like the design for Peter (I had that haircut in '97) or Harry.
That's the problem most people have(which they often mix up with animation). Many of the complainers just saw the character designs and assumed the show was just for kids only. Anyone who's actually watched the show know that isn't true. Ultimate Spider-man seems geared more towards kids.

I'd be lying if I said I was fan of SSM's designs, but they allowed for much smoother animation and great fight scenes. I'd say that's a trade-off. It's common knowledge that they only have so much money, and they had to make a decision to either put it into the character designs, or the action sequences, and I'm glad they chose the latter. Wolverine & the X-men is a perfect example of a show that has pretty decent character designs but is seriously lacking in the action animation department.

How many episodes are supposed to be in this horrendous season?

Though the real problem is that the "target audience" is really only hitting the 8 and under crowd and for a show as expensive as this one...its not going to cut it in the ratings.

At least that's my hope. If EMH gets taken off the rating for this show might plummet. I mean everyone I know who has even watched one episode of this show says they just saw it while waiting for Avengers to come on.

Well, we'll see what happens. I wouldn't mind a second season if they got their act together, but I don't see that happening. :\

Aunt May is young
MJ is into journalism, but they made her more into it than she is in the comics

I wouldn't say nothing like it at it all, they have some stuff from that title

You're wrong, people are watching it. Ok fine there's been negative reactions to the show, but Quesada is right when he says people love it, me included.

This gif from the latest episode got 8,000 likes on tumblr alone and growing, positive commments included.



So while there have been negative reactions, it's not as bad as you're making it out to be.
One of the only few jokes that actually made me chuckle.

No more Loeb fanpage according to CMB.

Thor looks exactly as he does in the Marvel Studios movies. Same for the frost giants, and I saw a commercial on TV showing Loki and he looks exactly as he does in the movies as well.
Least we got Thor this week.

Rumor has it that he is turned into a frog for the majority of the episode so don't get your hopes up.

Frog Thor is awesome but in the hands of Man of Action I am worried.

TSSM was one of the best shows, not just one of the best spider-man shows, I have ever seen. I really dont feel like it was even geared towards kids. It was a fun, mature, funny, intense, action, emotional, SPECTACULAR show

The Chibis are cute, but ugghhh...there's such a thing as too much. Can't believe EMH is getting taken off the menu and we're served up THIS load of...I can't even think of a word!

Frankly, i am not shocked to read this.

I mean what do you expect from the people who made this show. It is also interested that they mention Dini not quite happy with the end result. Let's see what happens next.
That sounds awful. There's actually going to be a second season of this? Really??

"Marvel is not planning any change to the show tone, its humor, execution or even character development". WHAT CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT? This has thus far been the worst Spider-man show I have seen.

I still can't believe that they cancelled 'The Spectacular Spider-man' for... THIS!

On a brighter note, they won't try to damage a great show more than what I hear they're doing with it
