'''{{hv}}''' is the sixth animated feature from [[Marvel Animation]] and [[Lions Gate Home Entertainment]], released on January 27, 2009. It contains two separate features, {{hvw}} and {{hvt}}. It is part of an [[Christopher Yost Animated Universe|animated universe]] that includes {{wxm}}, {{aemh}}, and {{tta}}.
+
'''{{smtnas}}''' is the sixth animated series based on {{C|Spider-Man|smtnas}}. It only produced [[Spider-Man: The New Animated Series Episodes|thirteen episodes]], the same as {{smu}}, in 2003 from July 11th to September 12th.
   
The project came about when [[Frank Paur]] suggested having {{C|Hulk|hv}} fight {{C|Wolverine|hv}}. It was eventually expanded to include a fight between Hulk and {{C|Thor|hv}}. While the previous feature {{naht}} was designed to appeal to younger audiences, ''Hulk Vs'' was to appeal to hardcore fans. One of the appeals of releasing directly to DVD is that it allowed the producers to be more violent than they could be in other forms of media, and each video ended up with a PG-13 rating.
+
The series was initially an attempt to adapt the ''Ultimate Spider-Man'' comic line, being written and produced by [[Brian Michael Bendis]]. However, after the success of the first ''Spider-Man'' film the series was altered so that it followed the movie in a loose continuity. It makes specific references to the film, most notably {{C|Harry Osborn|smtnas}} blaming Spider-Man for the death of his {{C|Norman Osborn|smtnas|father}}. The series also cast [[Michael Clarke Duncan]] from the ''Daredevil'' film to reprise his role as {{C|Kingpin|smtnas}}. Several actors were prominent singers, due to appearing on MTV, including [[Lisa Loeb]], [[Eve Jihan Jeffers|Eve]], and [[Rob Zombie]].
   
In {{hvw}}, {{C|Department H|hv}} sends Wolverine ([[Steven Blum]]) after the newly emerged Hulk ([[Fred Tatasciore]]) when a town is destroyed. He travels across the Canadian Rockies and begins a brutal showdown. However, the two are captured by {{C|Team X|hv}} and taken to the {{C|Weapon X|hv}} facility. Logan recounts how he was brainwashed and bonded with adamantium before learning that Weapon X is trying to control Hulk. Wolverine escapes and finds {{C|Bruce Banner|hv}} (Bryce Johnson). He forces the doctor to transform so that Hulk beats Team X and destroys the facility. Wolverine and Hulk then resume their battle.
+
The animation was provided by [[Mainframe Entertainment]], and was produced by [[Sony Pictures Televison]] who also made {{ssm}}. The series was Marvel's first to be completely computer generated, with previous series {{im}}, {{sm}}, and {{ss}} having combined traditional and computer animation. Mainframe, who produced the very first computer animated series ''ReBoot'', had to make several technical advances in order to produce the series. Most notably were what became known as the "Martini Shot." In the first episode produced, {{eps|The Party}}, the producers wanted what looked like a meteor to become an olive dropped in a martini. The shot required numerous layers that pushed the boundaries of then-current technology. This one shot inspired the producers to include a similar transition in each episode that would further push technological limitations.
   
In {{hvt}}, {{C|Odin|hv}} ([[French Tickner]]) has entered the {{C|Odinsleep|hv}} and Thor ([[Matthew Wolf]]) leads the defense of {{C|Asgard|hv}}. {{C|Loki|hv}} ([[Graham McTavish]]) and {{C|Amora|hv}} ([[Kari Wahlgren]]) bring Bruce to their realm and separate Bruce and Hulk. Loki takes control of the brute and uses it to storm his way towards Odin. However, he loses control and the mindless giant begins battling every entity in Asgard to destroy Odin. Thor teams up with {{C|Sif|hv}} ([[Grey Griffin|Grey DeLisle]]), {{C|Balder|hv}} (Michael Adamthwaite), the {{C|Warriors Three|hv}}, Amora, and Loki to stop Hulk. Thor and Loki then travel to {{C|Hel|hv}} to get {{C|Hela|hv}} ([[Janyse Jaud]]) to give up Bruce's soul, after Loki killed the mortal. After wanting to remain free, Bruce agrees to rebond with Hulk to save Asgard and is then sent to {{C|Midgard|hv}}. Odin wakes and thanks Bruce for saving the Gods.

Throughout the series, Peter Parker ([[Neil Patrick Harris]]) and {{C|Mary Jane Watson|smtnas}} (Loeb) struggle to maintain a working romantic relationship. Though things become complicated when he begins dating {{C|Indira Daimonji|smtnas|Indy Daimonji}} (Angelle Brooks). Harry ([[Ian Ziering]]) deals with the aftermath of his father's death such as taking over the family company and an angry Curt Connors using lizard DNA to seek revenge for loosing his arm. And of course, Spider-Man's professional problems are always getting in the way of Peter's happiness. He faces off against comic book villains such as {{C|Kraven the Hunter|smtnas}} ([[Michael Dorn]]), Kingpin (Duncan), {{C|Silver Sable|smtnas}} ([[Virginia Madsen]]), and {{C|Electro|smtnas}} ([[Ethan Embry]]) alongside original villains like {{C|Turbo Jet|smtnas}} ([[Harold Perrineau]]), {{C|Talon|smtnas}} ([[Eve Jihan Jeffers|Eve]]), Pterodax (James Marsters), and {{C|Shikata|smtnas}} (Gina Gershon). Eventually the psychic Gaines Twins ([[Kathy Griffin]] and Jeremy Piven) trick Spider-Man into thinking Kraven killed Mary Jane and again into putting Indy in the hospital. With the city and his friends against him, Peter gives up his life as Spider-Man in the cliffhanger ending. Had the series continued, Peter obviously would have gone back to superheroics and faced off against more familiar villains like Mysterio, Vulture, and more Kraven.
   
Reviews for the movies were positive. The two, particularly {{hvw}}, have been cited as some of the best direct-to-video animated features from either [[Marvel Comics]] and DC Comics. ''Wolverine'' has fared slightly better than ''Thor''. Critics felt that ''Thor'' had a better story with more character development, though it required more knowledge of the Thor comics and was not quite as fun as ''Wolverine''. Critics applauded ''Wolverine'' for delivering action that has been unseen on television or live-action superheroes, but claimed the Weapon X story took away from the title fight. {{C|Deadpool|hv}}, in his first actual animated appearance, and his voice actor [[Nolan North]] has been praised as the breakout character.
+
Reaction to the series was mixed though generally good. The animation and action sequences were widely praised as some of the best looking and exciting of any series. Critics were divided on the tone of the series, which was darker and more serious than most other animated comic book series. Critics disliked how villains were killed off, giving it a villain-of-the-week feel, though liked how they were characterized. Others wondered why Peter would date and have sex with Indy but not Mary Jane.

Spider-Batman SMTNAS

Spider-Man: The New Animated Series is the sixth animated series based on Spider-Man. It only produced thirteen episodes, the same as Spider-Man Unlimited, in 2003 from July 11th to September 12th.

The series was initially an attempt to adapt the Ultimate Spider-Man comic line, being written and produced by Brian Michael Bendis. However, after the success of the first Spider-Man film the series was altered so that it followed the movie in a loose continuity. It makes specific references to the film, most notably Harry Osborn blaming Spider-Man for the death of his father. The series also cast Michael Clarke Duncan from the Daredevil film to reprise his role as Kingpin. Several actors were prominent singers, due to appearing on MTV, including Lisa Loeb, Eve, and Rob Zombie.

The animation was provided by Mainframe Entertainment, and was produced by Sony Pictures Televison who also made The Spectacular Spider-Man. The series was Marvel's first to be completely computer generated, with previous series Iron Man, Spider-Man, and Silver Surfer having combined traditional and computer animation. Mainframe, who produced the very first computer animated series ReBoot, had to make several technical advances in order to produce the series. Most notably were what became known as the "Martini Shot." In the first episode produced, "The Party", the producers wanted what looked like a meteor to become an olive dropped in a martini. The shot required numerous layers that pushed the boundaries of then-current technology. This one shot inspired the producers to include a similar transition in each episode that would further push technological limitations.

Throughout the series, Peter Parker (Neil Patrick Harris) and Mary Jane Watson (Loeb) struggle to maintain a working romantic relationship. Though things become complicated when he begins dating Indy Daimonji (Angelle Brooks). Harry (Ian Ziering) deals with the aftermath of his father's death such as taking over the family company and an angry Curt Connors using lizard DNA to seek revenge for loosing his arm. And of course, Spider-Man's professional problems are always getting in the way of Peter's happiness. He faces off against comic book villains such as Kraven the Hunter (Michael Dorn), Kingpin (Duncan), Silver Sable (Virginia Madsen), and Electro (Ethan Embry) alongside original villains like Turbo Jet (Harold Perrineau), Talon (Eve), Pterodax (James Marsters), and Shikata (Gina Gershon). Eventually the psychic Gaines Twins (Kathy Griffin and Jeremy Piven) trick Spider-Man into thinking Kraven killed Mary Jane and again into putting Indy in the hospital. With the city and his friends against him, Peter gives up his life as Spider-Man in the cliffhanger ending. Had the series continued, Peter obviously would have gone back to superheroics and faced off against more familiar villains like Mysterio, Vulture, and more Kraven.

Reaction to the series was mixed though generally good. The animation and action sequences were widely praised as some of the best looking and exciting of any series. Critics were divided on the tone of the series, which was darker and more serious than most other animated comic book series. Critics disliked how villains were killed off, giving it a villain-of-the-week feel, though liked how they were characterized. Others wondered why Peter would date and have sex with Indy but not Mary Jane.
