Marvel Comics' Spider-Man has been brought to the small screen several times. Four of these instances all bear the same name, simply titled "Spider-Man." Although all three of these series have featured the wall crawling, web slinging teen in the red and blue tights, they have each had their own differences in direction and storytelling.

The Spider-Man cartoon from the late 60's was the first television adaptation of Spider-Man. It saw Peter Parker flirting with Betty Brant, instead of Gwen Stacey or Mary Jane Watson. Notably, only the first season dealt with villains from Spidey's rogue's gallery, with the other two seasons focusing on fighting generic green-skinned monsters and magical creatures as a cost-cutting measure.

Japan produced a 41 episode live-action, or "tokusatsu," series of Spider-Man in the late 1970's. However, this version of the hero is only "Spider-man" in name and costume design. Everything else completely deviates from what Marvel produced, from the civilian identity of motorcycle driver, Takuya Yamashiro, to the piloting of a giant robot to defeat gigantic versions of the monster of the week.

Another series, lasting 26 episodes, was produced in 1981, as a precursor to the much higher-viewed Spider-man & His Amazing Friends. The series veered away from the cost-cutting measures of the 60's series and featured dozens of members from Spidey's rogue's gallery, from the Green Goblin and Kraven the Hunter to the Lizard and the Kingpin. It also featured Medusa and Magneto, the Master of Magnetism, despite not being strictly Spider-Man villains.

The 1994 version of Spider-Man aired the longest of all Spider-man series at 65 episodes and 5 seasons. Further, it was the regularly highest rated show on FOX at the time. This version of the series covered many of the major storylines from Spider-Man's comics, including the lengthy Maximum Carnage arc which featured antihero Eddie Brock/Venom and the psychotic Cletus Cassidy/Carnage, as well as the death of Mary Jane Watson (who had been Peter's long-time girlfriend at that point in the series).

  • The Beyonder uses his powers to teleport the powerless Spider-man to stop Kingpin and Spider-Carnage from destroying all of reality. Spider-Man reveals to the Kingpin that he was duped by Spider-Carnage into creating a bomb to destroy all realities. Kingpin attacks Spider-Carnage and assists in foiling the plans to destroy all of reality, but Spider-Carnage escapes via the Accelerator. Madame Web brings Spider-Man and the Scarlet Spider back to her base and she searches the infinite dimensions and informs the Spider-Men where Spider-Carnage is. She says she can only send one of them there, and sends Spider-Man. Spider-Carnage uses the accelerator to construct a disintegration dimensional portal which can erase anything that is pulled into it from existence, with the intention of destroying all of reality. Spider-Man, realizing that Spider-Carnage is too insane to be reasoned with, comes up with a new plan. He realizes that here, Uncle Ben is still alive, and Spider-Man brings him to confront Spider-Carnage. Uncle Ben explains to Spider-Carnage the rule of power and responsibility, and tells him that he loves him. The Peter Parker within him is reached by this and realizes how wrong he has been. He attempts to separate from Carnage, but the symbiote's grip is too strong and he is unable to break the bond. Realizing that he is left with no choice, he uses the TDA to make the portal close. Peter shouts "Forgive me!" as he jumps into the portal, destroying himself and the Carnage symbiote. Spider-Man bids farewell to the Uncle Ben of that dimension, as though he were having the chance to say good-bye to his own Uncle Ben. Madame Web retrieves Spider-Man to her base to return him to his home world. The powerless Spidey, wants Spider-Man to see a very special man, Stan Lee. Stan Lee cancels all his appointments for the day and goes web-swinging with Spider-Man. Peter thanks Stan Lee for making him into the hero he always wanted to be in his own dimension.

  • Spider-Man finds himself in yet another dimension, thanks to Beyonder. There he finds that Hobgoblin and the Green Goblin have been working together and have destroyed the city. The Goblins, are confused by Spider-Man's attack upon them, and tell him, they were doing what he told them to do. The Hobgoblin concludes that this must be the other Spider-Man they were warned about and attack Spider-Man with full force. They kidnap Jameson to get his hand print so that they can steal and use the microwave transmitter on top of the Bugle. Hobgoblin detonates a bomb that destroys the Bugle building. Spider-Man goes after them, but gets ambushed by Spider-Carnage. Before Spider-Carnage could finish him off, Spider-Man is teleported by Beyonder to Madame Web's base. There he meets... himself, other dimensional duplicates of Peter Parker. Madame Web reveals to Spider-Man, she and the Beyonder have been training 5 different Spider-Men from parallel realities in order to save all reality from being blown up. Beyonder shows the Spider-Men the future: Spider-Carnage will destroy all reality, unless they stop him. The event actually happened and the Beyonder used all of his power to roll back time (before his home dimension was destroyed). All of the Spidey's, except for the powerless one, attack Crime Central, only to be surprised by Green Goblin and Hobgoblin. A battle begins, in which Armored Spidey and Octo-Spidey are injured (both due to Armored Spidey's reckless actions), so the Beyonder teleports them back to Madame Web's base. Later, Six-Armed Spidey is transformed into Man-Spider, and he attacks Spider-Man and Scarlet Spider. The episode ends with the Scarlet Spider and Spider-Man caught in the grip of the Man-Spider.

  • With Spider-Man having beaten Spider-Carnage, he is taken to the power-less Spider-Man's dimension, in which he is a comic book hero, and the power-less Spidey is an actor who plays him! When he gets there, he meets Stan Lee, and takes him for a web-slinging adventure. Once he is done, Madame Web takes him to Mary Jane.

  • Spider-Man is chose as the leader of a bunch of fellow Spider-Man's from parallel dimensions. They have to beat Spider-Carnage, the Carnage symbiote who bonded with a parallel universe Spider-Man, otherwise, he'll destroy the entire galaxy.
