EPISODES - "CONTEST OF THE CHAMPIONS, PART ONE"
#75 - Contest of the Champions, Part One
Original Airdate - October 3rd, 2015
Spider-Man, the Avengers, and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. battle their greatest foes for the fate of the planet. Spider-Man is chosen to be the chief game piece of the Collector against the Grandmaster who seeks to submit the Earth and once again humiliate his brother.
Ultimate Spider-Man is produced by Marvel Animation and carries a TV-Y7-FV parental guideline.
Pretty good start to a new story-arc. The idea is decent, a little too cliche but kind of consistent with all the other stuff that happened on the show. Neat introduction for the Grandmaster and his sibling rivalry with the Collector was handled pretty well, though some of their dialogue could have been better. Spidey being the Collector's secret weapon was to be expected since this is his show, after all. Nice little team-up with Iron Man and Hulk, even if it didn't last too long.
I enjoyed Spidey's solo battles with the Abomination, Beetle & Skurge the Executioner, and then later on with Kraven the Hunter, Molten Man & the Wendigo King. I especially liked how Molten Man was defeated. Kraven was pretty impressive this time, managing to lead the other two villains and taking down the Hulk. The way Spidey tried playing the villains against each other was predictable, but I appreciated that at least Kraven saw through it.
All in all, not bad. I'm hoping the other episodes will be at least as entertaining as this was and the story won't be as repetitive as other previous stories. .
