View Full Version : 3 Spider-Man series in less than 10 years.

It's barely 9 years since the '94-'97 series aired followed by the awful Spide-Man Unlimited and now we have the new MTV CGI Spidey cartoon, see a pattern here?
Why have there been so many Spider-Man shows, it's as if Marvel is afraid that their characters will be forgotten by TV viewers and thay keep cranking out bad imitations of their better shows.
90's X-Men was good, X-Men Evolution is terrible, why create this abomination?
90's Spider-Man was good, Spidey Unlimited was terrible and the MTV Spidey is painful for the eyes because of jerky CGI animation.
If the MTV Spidey can last a few seasons I'll be surprised but I'm not the same kid as I was anxious to see Spider-Man and X-Men on FOX.

You need to remember that the new generation doesn't know who spiderman is or rest of things we grew up w/. I like the mtv's spiderman in cgi. but i would luv to see them do x-men as well. Wolverine in cgi battle .. :eek: Or bring back the x-men series that aired on fox again but sometime has passed and we see what they are up to now.

Bring on the Spider friends! Nothing says hit like bastardizing the rep a pair of mutants and having them play second fiddle to spiderman while living in a apartment together that all the wall panels swivel to hi-tech (HeHe) computer screens. If Ice man rode around town on his never ending ice bridge why did the authorities just follow them back to their lair. It is not like 15 tons of ice melts completely away in minutes...I don't get it??

Though I doubt Spiderman will be forgotten any time soon thanks to movies and cartoons galore, Marvel DOES have reason to be afraid.
Yes, it happens. It happens to even the titans of show-biz. Remember The Shadow? It was once America's favorite serial, and everyone seemed to know the catch-phrase 'The Shadow Knows...'. Now, the only Shadow the average American will probably know is that Alec Baldwin movie version, and hardly anything else.
In other words, if Spiderman isn't so mass-marketed, it will probably be simply trodded over by other more popular franchises.

The same can be said for Billy Zane in The Phantom, although I think that more people remember Zane from 'Titanic' than any other movie he's done.
