Here Come The Web Warriors!

Teased as far back as early May, Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors animated series is a go, revealed Monday by USA Today. As previously speculated, Web Warriors is the third season of the popular Ultimate Spider-Man Disney XD cartoon, and will contain a four-episode animated analogue to the upcoming Spider-Verse Marvel Comics event.

“[The new season is] going to really show how important Spider-Man — and by extension Peter Parker — is to the entire universe we’ve built,” Marvel Television animation vice president (and former Spidey editor) Steve Wacker told USA Today, noting that early episodes of the season will lead up to “Spider-Verse.” “There’s a piece of the puzzle that’s given there and really eagle-eyed Marvel Universe fans will be able to pick it out right away. All these appearances are leading up to a big story late in the season. The kid who’s watching every single week is going to be rewarded with a story that really connects at the end.”

Among the Spider-Men showing up in Ultimate Spider-Man’s version of “Spider-Verse” are Iron Spider, Spider-Man Noir, Spider-Ham, Spider-Man 2099 (which will feature a completely different computer-generated design) and a new gender-swapped world featuring Petra Parker, the Amazing Spider-Girl, who works with newspaper editor J. Joan Jameson. The event also brings Miles Morales to animation for the first time in history. In fact, it’s the first time the character has been seen in any other form of media other than comics.

The only connection between this “Spider-Verse” and the comic event will be the name.
