I guess I'm the only one still watching Ultimate Spidey as well. I really liked this week's episode with Venom. Their take on him is a bit different than the 616 version and I like it. I love the awkward dynamic of the team with Power Man, Iron Fist, White Tiger and Nova. Nova is a real a-hole. But it works.
Ill probably watch it-- (if it ever makes it to DVD)

Ultmate Spider-Man: Web-Warriors "Halloween Night At The Museum"
First off, elephant in the room: This was terrible. A contender for the worst episode the series ever produced. I will not lie about that. At least they didn't use a laugh track.
But quality aside I have no objections to it in the slightest. Stuff like this what Marvel SHOULD be doing. Yes, I hated it. But I'm 39 years old. Kid superhero cartoons should not be trying to cater exclusively to adult fanboys. That's what got Young Justice and Beware The Batman into so much trouble.
From what I could tell this was a perfect episode for the 6 year old fans of Jessie to sample the show and see their favorite characters inexplicably using sick ninja moves. And as terrible as the episode was, I've seen clips of Jessie and I can say that that show looks MUCH worse. If Jessie fans see a Spider-Man cartoon that is actually a little bit better than the show they watch every week they are liable to stick around. And maybe they'll even like it enough to sample a Spider-Man comic. The comic book industry NEEDS little kid fans. Wouldn't it be great if some of them were little girls? That would not only help Marvel, but the entire industry. So, I'll take a sucky episode for the team and the long term health of superhero comics.
For the record, I never would have become a Static Shock fan if Batman hadn't shown up. Once that happened I watched every week and became a huge fan. I've seen every episode and own the only DVD release the show put out. I'm dying for season sets and would buy them the day they were released. There is no reason that won't happen with some Jessie fans. I never would have watched Static Shock otherwise and I'm betting some Jessie fans could have said the same thing about Spider-Man.
There is a very good chance that because of this episode the six year old female fans of Jessie just became fans of this show and might be willing to watch it again. That is a VERY good thing. It is SUCH a good thing that it is better for the Marvel brand than me complaining about an episode I didn't like. The show is bigger than me and the adults in the audience. Marvel would do well to keep doing stuff like this. 0.

In the premiere episode, “Adapting to Change,” the Avengers learn what it’s like to work as a team again and battle A.I.M.’s latest weapon – a new and improved Super Adaptoid developed by the Scientist Supreme.
