Spider-Man: The Animated Series Season 2 Review

 As a kid I loved the Spider-Man cartoon that ran during the 1990s. I watched the original season for nostalgia and loved it almost as much as back in the day. In the end I still had the motivation to continue onward.
 With most of the introductios out of the way, the second season focuses on Spider-Man's growing problems. Even though his personal life is often in chaos, his unstable mutation is his biggest concern. He even enlists the help of Charles Xavier and fights alongside the X-Men for a mission. 
But his problems aren't resolved so easily, and he overcomes his struggles eventually with the help of some friends along the way.  New faces such as The Punisher, and the half-vampire Blade make appearances to become eventual allies with Spider-Man. There are surprisingly not as many new villains as I expected with really just Morbius and The Vulture challenging Spider-Man. 
Overall I still enjoyed the second season, and even more so than the first. It may have too many cameos from other Marvel super-heroes, but the action and story are much better. And who could hate an episode where Spider-Man and Wolverine team up? Doesn't get much more awesome than that.
