Netflix just got this spectacular superhero show – and it’s 100% featured on Rotten Tomatoes

There’s never been a greater selection of superhero TV shows, from The Boys on Prime Video to the plethora of Marvel Disney Plus series. But Netflix has a classic series right now that beats them all — and it stars everyone’s favorite web-slinger.

Both seasons of The Spectacular Spider-Man are now streaming on Netflix; that’s 26 episodes of Spidey Goodness to enjoy. This popular animated series debuted in 2008 but was unfortunately canceled a year later after Disney bought Marvel. More than a decade later, the show is still fondly remembered and definitely counts as one TV show that was canceled too soon.

What is The Spectacular Spider-Man about?

Skipping the familiar origin story, The Spectacular Spider-Man begins a few months after batty high schooler Peter Parker (voiced by Josh Keaton) was bitten by a radioactive spider and developed superhuman abilities.

The show follows his attempts to balance a normal teenage life with fighting crime. It also features many of his most iconic villains, including Vulture, Electro, the Lizard, Mysterio, and Dr. Otto Octavius. There’s even a four-part run centered around Venom, which is arguably the best representation of this seminal Spider-Man story outside of the comics.
