Ultimate Spider-Man is an American television series created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko for Disney XD. This show is based on the Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man comics.

The series follows the life of the young teenager Peter Parker, who is the amazing hero Spider-Man to understand and reach his maximum potential powers by joining the agency S.H.I.E.L.D. and forming a team of super heroes to defeat the powerful supervillains. In his journey, he meets his most difficult challenges, while still maintaning his secret identity as Spider-Man.

Production

Brian Michael Bendis and Paul Dini are serving as the writers and the producers on the show. They hired Man of Action, who are the creators of such shows as Ben 10 and Generator Rex as the supervising producers. Paul Dini has said this series will show the a "redefined" Peter Parker and will guest-starring with different characters, the series will be partially be based on Bendis' comics while the rest will be original material. 26 episodes for season 1 had been ordered.

Launch parties for the series were held in New York City and Los Angeles on March 31, 2012, the day before the series' broadcast television debut. On hand at the New York City party at Midtown Comics Downtown in Manhattan were Marvel Chief Creative Officer Joe Quesada, writer/producer Joe Kelly and Chris Eliopoulos, who wrote the first issue of the tie-in comic book, while the Los Angeles party at Meltdown Comics in Hollywood was attended by Marvel Head of Television Jeph Loeb, Duncan Rouleau, Steven T. Seagle, voice actors Clark Gregg and Misty Lee, and Creative Consultant Paul Dini, who wrote the series pilot.

Great Power and Great Responsibility were aired as a one hour special.

Animation

In terms of design, the producers made sure that the animation team knew about the style and history of Spider-Man art. They wanted to make sure that the animation team took all of those ideas and put them into the animation of the Ultimate Spider-Man series.

Jeph Loeb recruited artists Ed McGuinness, Stuart Immonen, Humberto Ramos, and Paolo Rivera to work on the art. The goal was to get the series to have the "tonal flavor" of the comics by using Marvel Comics artists and make the animation that it looks like it appears coming out of the screen.
