I think most people came towards Ultimate Spider-man with chips on their shoulders. I did. I mean, it was the enemy series! The sham king! The forced new series! The beginning of the end! And honestly it is far from perfect, far from the spectacular series that came before (and that was cut off before its time). It was branded the Family Guy Spider-man! People said it ruined their faith in Paul Dini. It is used in a Godwin’s Law fashion amongst cartoon and comic viewers – but it doesn’t deserve all of the hate.
