    For me personally I thought the fight scenes were lackluster, the animation was okay but the choreography was lacking. There were some scenes in the series where Spiderman doesn't fight like Spiderman, like the scene where he lands on the ground and starts boxing with Taskmaster or the scene where Spiderman catapults himself towards Taskmaster and Taskmaster doesn't budge an inch.

    I think there was a time when USM's action scenes were probably one of the only things it had going for it, at least for me, even though they were never on par with the action sequences in Spectacular and were so often interrupted by fourth-wall gags that broke up the momentum :sweat:.

    If I had to sum up USM's fights, I'd say they were generally serviceable if not prone to standing out much. Comparatively they looked better visually and were better animated then other contemporary Marvel cartoons.

    There are only two examples I can think of when it comes to impressive fight scenes on USM. The first fight with Venom back in Season 1, and from the final season, the fight with Sandman on that island. Pretty great choreography and some nice animation helped things.

    That's not to say the other fights on the show were terrible, just not as exciting or impressive for me.
