Spider-Man: The New Animated Series (also known as MTV Spider-Man) is an American-Canadian animated series created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko and based on the Marvel comic book superhero Spider-Man.

Premise Edit

The story follows the events of the 2002 film. Norman Osborn is dead. Peter Parker, Mary Jane Watson, and Harry Osborn attend Empire State University. Peter and MJ try to establish a relationship without success. Peter's superhero duties, and later his involvement with Indira Daimonji, interfere with his romance with MJ. Harry craves revenge on Spider-Man, whom he blames for the death of his father. Peter faces an assortment of other villains including the Lizard, Kraven the Hunter and Electro while trying to maintain a job and his studies. He faces two psychic twins who ruin everything in the wallcrawler's life, causing Peter to give up being Spider-Man and try to live a normal life.

Why It Was Cancelled Edit

MTV decided that the ratings were insufficient to warrant a second season, leaving the show to end on a cliffhanger. The main cause for the ratings would be due to airing the episodes out of chronological order.
