This whole generation of Marvel animations, which began with the groundbreaking X-Men series, is of an extraordinarily high quality. Their visual style is influenced by the best of the comics' artists, the protagonists are properly fleshed out, and--proving that cartoons don't have to be dumb--the plots and story arcs often have the kind of sophistication you'd expect from the best kind of adventure novel. This example is typically faultless in execution and, unlike most Saturday-morning fodder, bears repeated viewing. --Roger Thomas

Spidey is an icon, and his fans won't suffer too many years elapsing without his being on TV or, nowadays, in a feature film. This particular cartoon incarnation ran from 1994 to 1998 for 65 episodes, and, even at its final stages, it was still well received enough to garner its own sequel series in 1999, the very short lived (and inferior) SPIDER-MAN UNLIMITED, which placed Spidey on Counterearth.
Back to the 1994 series: Most of the classic Spider-Man elements are here. From his everyday sadsack life to his familiar supporting cast, from his rogues' gallery (excepting Sandman) to his sense of humor and bad guy baiting. And in this one, Peter is still attending college at Empire State U, even as he continues to shoot photos for the Daily Bugle.
The four episodes in DAREDEVIL VS. SPIDER-MAN are pulled from Season 3's "Sins of the Fathers" story arc (Chapters VI - IX). Daredevil, by the way, appears in only the first two of these episodes ("Framed" and "The Man Without Fear"). When Peter Parker is hired by the Kingpin and then framed and arrested for a federal crime, blind attorney Matt Murdock's services are mysteriously engaged in Peter's defense.Read more ›
The extra episode with FF and Daredevil was also entertaining. A slight lighter DD in that one but no less intrigiging. A good addition to the other Spider-Man DVD's out there!
By the way, I agree with the previous reviewer. It should've been called Spider-Man: Enter Daredevil.
Buy this DVD and you won't be disappointed. Buy it as part of Spiderman: The Ultimate Villain Showdown and you really will be delighted.

Pluses: the overarching plot ("Sins of the Fathers") does not disappoint, though admittedly no other element here comes close to that quality. The Kingpins' voice is the best one there; all others (including Majel Barrett) overact in the finest cartoon tradition.
Minuses: the digitization is poor, catching half-frames and getting quite jerky at times. Some of the dialogue is downright cheesy, and logic... well, this is a cartoon, not a comic.
All good fun, just don't expect more than a cartoon can provide.
35. The Ultimate Slayer: Kingpin attempts to kill Spider-Man by turning Smythe into a cyborg and let him do it. Another great episode. A
36. Tombstone: Tombstone is hired by Alisha Silver to destroy the story planned for the Daily Bugle revealing that she had taken over her father's criminal organisation, in exchange for large amounts of cash. Tombstone attempts to use Robbie Robertson, whom he was childhood friends with, to kill the story. Another good episode. A-
If you have the Ultimate Villain Showdown & like it, you'll love this collection.
