People need to understand that this is a teenage boy living his teenage life. Sure he says works like jerk, tool, and loser, but he’s a TEENAGER. He could be saying a lot worse. It’s quirky as he is in the comic books, so why are you so mad? This is one of the best animated Spiderman shoes and adults are saying it’s not appropriate? It’s about a teenage boy who fights crime and deals with being awkward. If you’ve read any Spiderman comic books you’ll love this. Your kids will learn lessons as well. Yes there iffy at time but the overall lesson is obviously “with great power comes great responsibility.” All the other reviews say the same thing so take it with a grain of salt. Watch it for yourself

Sometimes I just wish that Peter would shut the DUCK up

He talks way too much and his jokes are pretty lame. The 4th wall break is annoying and unreasonable. Not to mention that lack of character introspection. Spectacular spiderman was not only better got you got to see a wimpy Peter Parker whose life was actually getting affected by him being Spiderman but you got to see him and how he loved those around him. The Ultimate spiderquack can go full episodes without even removing his mask, always fighting. Its pretty sad that Captain America and Wolverine among others have to make an appearance to sometimes make things interesting. Generally I feel there are way too many heroes anyway. This series is terrible.
