As the owner of Marvel, Disney first premiered Ultimate Spider-Man on Disney XD on April 1, 2012. However, it is not considered an Original Disney XD program.
On the surface, Peter Parker is just your everyday, average 16-year old. As with most 16-year olds, he's dealing with new experiences and new challenges as well as getting through all the typical teenage ups-and-downs. In the Disney XD TV animated program, Ultimate Spider-Man, viewers learn that being a Super Hero isn't all bells and whistles.
Having been Spider-Man for only a year, Peter has shown his skills at fighting crime, capturing villains and saving lives. When Nick Fury, the head of the international espionage organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D. challenges Peter to "step up his game" and become even more of a Super Hero, the teenager jumps at the opportunity. Along with four other fledgling teen superheroes, Iron Fist, Nova, Power Man and White Tiger, Spider-Man undergoes rigorous "super" training, with the most valuable lesson being teamwork.
Originally the brainchild of legendary sci-fi icon Stan Lee, Ultimate Spider-Man features eye-popping animation and graphics. Blending elements of action, science-fiction, fantasy and even comedy, this Disney XD production elevates Walt Disney's futuristic vision successfully into the 21st Century.
