It's getting an overwhelming negative response from fans, and yet marvel is saying people are loving it.

Which one is true? Help me out my friends.

It's like watching iCarly, only everyone has powers.

It's even more disrespectful to Spider-Man than how some people claim Ock taking over Peter's body is disrespectful to Spider-Man. It's that appalling IMO.

A lot of changes to the comic stuff but it doesn't suck.

it's not that bad. The thing is that it's not a serious show like, young justice, for example. The only thing that I don't like is that Drake Bell plays the voice. I feel like if he wasn't the voice it would have a real different vibe. Also, the continuity is different for the most part. It's a show to watch for fun and see some of your favorite characters on TV.

I've watched like the first 5 episodes and its decent. The dialogue is atrocious and very immature. But the art is good and I like the roster (Iron Fist and Luke Cage? Heck yes)

You're not gonna go fanboy over it like Young Justice, but its a good show to put on in the background while you're doing other things.

I really don't think it's that bad the animation is awesome and the voice talent is pretty good. I just think people give it a hard time because of how much they liked Spectacular Spider-man. Of course I don't blame people for that, I still haven't watched any of the new Avengers show because of how much I liked AEMH and I feel no matter what I'd be disappointed in it.

EDIT: Oh and look this topic was made a year ago..

Basically

Its not terrible, it just doesn't really fallow the comics. But its good if you like comedy.

Drake Bell is awesome. The guy trashes Justin Bieber all the time on twitter :D

I think it's cringe worthy bad, absolutely terrible but my 5 year old son likes it.

The show is so sh!t, what makes it even worse is that they actually replaced spectacular with that and spectacular was an incredible show.

I've only seen one episode (the one with Deadpool) and from what I saw it looks really awful.

the deadpool episode was the best out all of them because this show is meant for deadpool not spider-man.

My favorite episode is the one when son invades Pete's mind and makes him confront Uncle Ben. He dealt with the consequences of what happened when he first got his powers, and the whole scene was heartwarming.

I like it. Look at that! I haven't seen Spidey do a train strength feat except in the comics. This is without a doubt the strongest animated version of spidey I have ever seen. It must be the closest marvel has ever come to showing off Spidey's strength closest to his comicbook counterpart.

@amazingspiderman15: I don't know how much weight that was... it wasn't a train, it was the roof of the tunnel (Which must weigh a lot but I don't know how much)

That was one of the last episodes they ever made for that series and in my opinion one of the greatest. It's also testimony that Jake Bells voice over is not the reason the Ultimate show isn't true to form. A good voice-over can mean a lot but when it comes down to it it's all about the acting.

It's a close between Spectacular and EMH but in my opinion EMH was the greatest cartoon Marvel ever made.

Good animation. Story is meh. A lot of changes but that's okay. Still not a show I like.
