“Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man” returns for its fourth season on Sunday, Feb. 21 at 9 a.m. on Disney XD, and the new season sees our titular hero facing perhaps his most dangerous threat yet — a new Sinister 6, led by Doctor Octopus and backed by Hydra.
In the special one-hour premiere of “Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man Vs. The Sinister 6,” titled “Hydra Attacks,” Peter Parker learns Doctor Octopus has teamed up with Arnim Zola and Hydra to attack the Tri-Carrier, leaving SHIELD caught off-guard and Spider-Man left to single-handedly stop the assault.
In Variety‘s exclusive sneak peek from the episode, we see Doctor Octopus releasing former prisoners of SHIELD from the Tri-Carrier and inviting them to audition for the new Sinister 6.
In Season 4, Peter Parker finds himself in prime position — he’s a successful hero after fighting alongside The Avengers, a SHIELD Academy leader and has a great relationship with his Aunt May. However, when Spidey discovers that his greatest enemies — Doctor Octopus, Hydra and the all-new Sinister 6 — have teamed up to destroy him and SHIELD, he creates a special new team of Spiders, including Miles Morales, Agent Venom, Iron Spider and the mysterious new Scarlet Spider. Spider-Man and his new friends will need to wield all of their power to overcome their greatest challenge yet.
