This is such a brilliant innovation in the Spiderman story and characterisation it really is a shame that it only ran for a total of thirteen episodes. This complete series is featured on two discs and an inlay card is included which folds out to be about the size of the box itself, clips from each episode are featured alongside comics caption/dialogue boxes which provide a synopsis of the action in this episode.

What struck me watching this was the extent to which for what is pretty much a simple saturday morning kids cartoon the episodes are cerebral, there is as much serious philosophising as wise cracking. There are not just the normal heroics, standing up to bullies and being your best content which you may associate with cartoons of this kind but morally complex dilemmas too.

Spiderman himself has been rebooted but I think the detractors of the series who suggested it was essentially Spiderman reborn go too far. In addition to the powers imparted to him by being mutated by a spider bite Peter Parker has a costume now which can be deployed from a wrist watch like device comprised of nano technology. In addition to web slinging he can fire small darts, use a kind of sonic emitting blast to repell enemies, provides a stealth camoflage and be protected against fumes and gas canisters.

These are major changes and Spiderman has become much more sophisticated but given that his major antagonists from the start of this series are Venom and Carnage I really think this is necessary because these are two of the most formidable adversaries in the Marvel universe and I always thought some of the battles in the comics when Spiderman did not have the enhanced capabilities featured here where unconvincing.

Spider-man Unlimited, the story of Peter Parker travelling to an alternate earth to rescue John Jameson who's space shuttle lost contact and crashed on an expedition to this mysterious planet thanks to the actions of Venom and Carnage, of course spidey trys to help and al usual gets the blame but this time there's a price on his head and he's public enemy number 1 so he has to put things right. So armed with a new suit made from the latest in nano technology he jumps aboard a space shuttle and its all down hill from there.
The series has it all from catchy theme music to bright colourful imagery. the animation style was far ahead of its time and sadly is one we've gone away from in modern times in favour of quicker less polished looks. as with any marvel series the characters introduced are given good focus and all given the right amount of personal detail that allows the viewer to engage with them and the plots are credible within the story itself.
All right so it is a pretty and interesting series ahead of its time that holes up really well compared to modern marvel animations, but there's got to be some downsides and there is, first of all the bad guys, well there is only 1 real bad guy and a handful of sub subservient's with the usual drones to make up numbers, this doesn't detract from the enjoyment of the series and does add some credibility in that bad guys don't just appear every episode, the tediousness that would ensue from a single enemy is broken up well by the engaging characters you do have and unique characters within the enemies there are, and you have the symbiotes sneaking around plotting which adds a twist.

This series is abit like marmite, you'l either love it or hate it. I myself do love it, having been a fan of spiderman for years it was a breath of fresh air to see the series take a twist.

This series follows on from the 90's series (which in my opinion was the best) where a new planet earth has been found. As with any new planet a space mission is compiled to explore it, and so the story begins.

The plot follows the efforts and venom and carnage who are trying to create a breed of super symbiot life forms to take over the second earth. I was pleased with the story progression as i always loved carnage and was disappointed at how little he was used in the previous series.

You will find a few familiar faces from spidermans past on second earth, again with a slight to their characters.

All in all its a good series but unfortunately due to being cancelled (see wikipedia article) the ending was never published.

I would say that this is more for the die hard / hard core spiderman fans but worth a go if you want to try something different.

This is a very different & interesting attempt at following the Spiderman animated series of the mid-90's. It has some really good storylines and has some strong nods to difficult topics like animal testing now being human testing. The reimagining of some characters like Green Goblin & the Vulture didn't work for me but Kraven did. Venom & Carnage's makeover didn't sit well with me. Their new plot as well was odd. Overall though it is a very good and enjoyable series. Well worth a watch. It's a pity that there's no extras as I would've like to have seen how they come up with the initial idea of putting Spiderman in an alternate reality of animals taking over from humans. That must've been an interesting set up process.
