What Is The Story of Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark?
Spider-Man, Turn Off the Dark loosely follows the storyline of the comic book series and the 2002 film adaptation of Spider-Man, while adding its own twist on the popular tale. When nerdy teenager Peter Parker is bitten by a genetically altered spider, he discovers he has obtained super strength, web-spinning abilities and other spider-like powers. Parker soon finds himself battling scientist-turned-villain Norman Osborn, who adopts the alter-ego of the Green Goblin. As Parker’s troubles begin to pile up, he looks toward Arachne, a mythical spider goddess, for inspiration.

Reviews

for Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark

An overt crowd-pleaser. Patrick Page is an exuberantly entertaining villain; Reeve Carney conveys a youthful earnestness and burgeoning confidence that make him a compelling foil.

Review by Elysa Gardner from USA Today

A high-flying, fun adventure with New York City's favorite webslinger.

Review by Rick Marshall from MTV

A fun family show that will entertain fans of both superheroes and showstoppers.
