So just remember what I had to go through watching this so you don't have to.
Ultimate Spider-Man is, well, Ultimate Spider-Man. It's yet another animated permutation of the popular web-slinger airing on Disney XD as part of the "Marvel Universe" (not literally the Marvel Universe, just the name of the programming block - so for those of you worried about this being incorporated into the larger Marvel canon, you can breathe a sigh of relief). Drake Bell (famous for Nickelodeon's Drake & Josh and picking up MC Hammer's financial habits) cracks wise, throws webbing at bad guy's faces, and that's pretty much the show in a nutshell. It's a superhero cartoon series on a Disney network so of course it's going to be at least a little dumbed down, with apparent mixed results from fans depending on who you ask.
