It's a popular theory that part of Spider-Man's appeal is that his full-facial mask makes him very identifiable as an everyman hero: it could be literally anybody under that mask and we'd have no way of knowing it. Dan Slott played it for laughs in the page at right, where Spider-Man claimed to be black in order to play a courtroom prank on J. Jonah Jameson.

Well, we're about to get a much more literal taste of that on Disney XD's Ultimate Spider-Man, when Miguel "Spider-Man 2099" O'Hara and Miles "Ultimate Spider-Man" Morales join the cast in a move that mirrors the Spider-Verse story that's happening in the comics and the Spider-Man Unlimited mobile game. Agent Venom, Spider-Ham and Spider-Girl are also pictured in the promotional image at top, which ran in USA Today.

The series' third season will be retitled as Marvel's Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors and premieres August 31 with a ton of comic-book guest stars, a bigger scope of the Marvel Universe than before and a "Spider-Verse" story line that will introduce Spidey (voiced by Drake Bell) to his counterparts from various alternate realities, including Miles Morales, who heads up the Ultimate title in the comics.

The new episodes are "going to really show how important Spider-Man — and by extension Peter Parker — is to the entire universe we've built," says Stephen Wacker, former Spider-Man editor at Marvel Comics and current vice president in Marvel Television's animation division. "Spider-Man is the center of everything we do. He's arguably the face of our company, him and Robert Downey Jr."

Saying that Spidey is the most identifiably Marvel hero there is, Wacker said that the new season will introduce heroes such as Doctor Strange, Ka-Zar of the Savage Land, Cloak & Dagger and Amadeus Cho.

"There's a piece of the puzzle that's given there and really eagle-eyed Marvel Universe fans will be able to pick it out right away," Wacker said. "All these appearances are leading up to a big story late in the season. The kid who's watching every single week is going to be rewarded with a story that really connects at the end."
