I really enjoyed them--I thought some of the cutbacks were pretty funny (my personal favorite was the "Parker Family Night"), and while the voice actor for Peter was a little abrasive to hear at times, he could grow into the role, and the "team" and the future plot developments were really interesting.
And yes, Mariachi Spider-Man was even funnier with context.

Oh and the fact it killed Spectacular Spider-Man.
And while I still have problems with it, it was rather fun and enjoyable to watch. Aside from Drake Bell, all of the main teens are well voiced, and while the adults don't fare as well, Chi McBride as Fury is one of the best parts of this show. And JK Simmons return as Jonah is bloody fantastic.
It's really steeped in the Marvel Universe and that works well for the show, offering some great insight and cut away jokes with other superheroes. The show also works well for Parker's Me-Time world and cast, with the exception of Flash and I love the Mary Jane in this show.
The other teen heroes are pretty good, their introduction was fantastic, and when they bleed over into Parker's world, it works well for what little we get.
Big problems: Drake Bell, breaking the fourth wall, it talks down to people, their Doc Ock, and Drake Bell.

Gonna have to check that comicDarkKnightJared wrote:AbdulAziz wrote:Nova's name is not "Richard Ryder", and not "Rick Jones", when did this Nova appear in comics?
This is apparently the Nova that first debuted in Point One and will play a role in Avengers Vs. X-Men.
