A second season of Marvel's #1 animated series "Ultimate Spider-Man," the launch series of the Marvel Universe programming block, has been ordered by Disney XD, it was announced today by David Levine, Vice President and General Manager, Disney XD Worldwide. The debut series from Marvel Television premiered in April 2012 and to date, has more than doubled its delivery in Total Viewers, Boys 6-14, Boys 6-11 and Boys 2-11. Marvel's "Ultimate Spider-Man" follows the action packed adventures of New York's friendly neighborhood Spider-Man who joins S.H.I.E.L.D.'s exclusive training program alongside four other teens to learn what it takes to become the ultimate Super Heroes.

The TV series' success extends to online as well where "Ultimate Spider-Man" games have held the #1 spot since their launch on DisneyXD.com. The "Iron Spider" game reached #1 in its first week (March 18) and stayed there for five straight weeks until "Cyber-Sabotage" launched on April 19, taking over the #1 spot for the next four weeks.

In making the announcement, Levine said, "The Disney XD audience has connected with Spider-Man and his super-powered friends as they face challenges in school and with their S.H.I.E.L.D. training. As the anchor of our Marvel Universe block, 'Ultimate Spider-Man' season two will be back with more humor, villains and adventurous storylines that boys (and girls) will love."

"We are very excited about the return of 'Ultimate Spider-Man' inside the Marvel Universe on Disney XD," said Jeph Loeb, Head of Marvel Television. "With season two, the series introduces popular Marvel heroes and villains you've never seen before on the small screen.

Fans can expect even more scripts from fan favorite Consulting Producer Brian Michael Bendis, who has written every issue of the Ultimate Comics Spider-Man since its best selling launch in 1999.

The second season of "Ultimate Spider-Man" has Spidey teaming up with some of the biggest heroes in the Marvel Universe, the Avengers - Iron Man, Thor, Captain America and the Hulk. While the stakes get higher, the villains become more menacing as the young heroes encounter classic Spider-Man villains such as the Lizard and other familiar faces.
