Marvel brings us a new Spider-Man cartoon that will focus on Peter Parker and his role as a superhero while attending Horizon High, a school for geniuses. Peter will work through the fact that his best friend Harry Osborn was just suspended from the school that he is accepted into.
This version of the show looks to bring us another high school Peter Parker trying to balance his life as a teenager with the fact he is a superhero. As Peter makes his first appearance as Spider-Man he will do battle with the Vulture. It is going to be interesting to see where they take this story and what villains he will have to tangle with in each episode. With Harry Osborn around we should expect to some version of the Green Goblin, but the comic version seems a bit dark for a show like this, so they will have to make their own story out of Harry and his father. We also get to see a picture of Uncle Ben who very much alive and happy.

PETER PARKER, UNCLE BEN, SPIDER-MAN, MAX MODELL
We also get a picture of Max Modell, who is the CEO of Horizon Labs and in the Marvel Comics Universe gets Peter Parker a job at Horizon Labs. Will be interesting to see what role he will play in the cartoon, but our guess he has something to do with Peter getting accepted into Horizon High, or he will be some sort of teacher.
Make sure to tune in on Saturday, August 19th on Disney XD to see a new chapter of Spider-Man get launched.
