Marvel Animation has posted the episode rundown and descriptions for the upcoming second season of The Spectacular Spider-Man.  There was a huge amount of buzz over season one (we even reviewed it on the Major Spoilers Podcast), and season two looks even better.

Canadians get to see the new episodes in January, while us ‘mericans have to wait until March.  And no, Gwen Stacy doesn’t die this season.

14 – Blueprints
It’s early December, and the first snow is falling. PETER PARKER has a long “To Do” list – leading off with talking to GWEN STACY about their surprise first kiss. But before he gets the chance, SPIDER-MAN has a run in with the sorcerer MYSTERIO.

15 – Destructive Testing

Both GWEN STACY and LIZ ALLAN like PETER PARKER. So whom should Pete pursue? Meanwhile, KRAVEN THE HUNTER has come to New York to make SPIDER-MAN his prey!

16 – Reinforcement
As Christmas approaches, the SINISTER SIX reconstitutes with SANDMAN, RHINO, VULTURE, ELECTRO and new members MYSTERIO and KRAVEN. All they want for Christmas is SPIDER-MAN – dead. Meanwhile, PETER PARKER finds his wandering eye prevents him from being with GWEN STACY. He’ll have to learn to focus if he wants to get the girl… and if he wants to stay alive.

17 – Shear Strength

It’s New Year’s Eve, and all is not right with world. The MASTER PLANNER and his henchmen are literally planning to take over the world! A highly motivated SPIDER-MAN takes the fight to the Planner’s secret lair. But once he gets there, can he survive?

18 – First Steps
School’s back in session, and things have changed. PETER PARKER’s actually invited to FLASH THOMPSON’s birthday bash. Meanwhile, SPIDER-MAN has to party with SANDMAN, who’s once again looking to make his Big Score. And is that VENOM disappearing into the night?

19 – Growing Pains

VENOM is back and framing SPIDER-MAN. Meanwhile, alien spores infect JOHN JAMESON, increasing his size, strength and mass. J. JONAH JAMESON convinces his son to become a super-hero to capture Spidey…

20 – Identity Crisis

PETER PARKER’s secret identity as SPIDER-MAN has been outted by VENOM, leaving Pete and his loved ones vulnerable to all of Spidey’s enemies.

21 – Accomplices

A gang war looms as SILVER SABLE, HAMMERHEAD and DOCTOR OCTOPUS vie for a prize that could change the balance of power in the New York Underworld…

22 – Probable Cause
Some days, PETER PARKER just can’t win… especially when he winds up on a MIDTOWN HIGH police car ride-along with SALLY AVRIL. As SPIDER-MAN, his luck isn’t any better, facing off against SHOCKER, RICOCHET and OX, i.e. the NEW ENFORCERS.

23 – Gangland

On Valentine’s Day, PETER PARKER jeopardizes his relationship with girlfriend LIZ ALLAN, when TOMBSTONE , DOCTOR OCTOPUS and SILVERMANE call a Valentine’s Day Summit . But when HAMMERHEAD betrays them all in an attempt to become the new Big Man, the summit erupts into a gang war – one only SPIDER-MAN can stop!

24 – Subtext
Determined to be a better boyfriend to LIZ ALLAN, PETER PARKER wishes he could help her brother MARK ALLAN. But when GREEN GOBLIN blackmails Mark into doing his bidding, neither Liz, MARY JANE WATSON nor SPIDER-MAN may be able to save him!

25 – Opening Night
To test security at the VAULT, SPIDER-MAN volunteers to try to escape. But the GREEN GOBLIN has other ideas, trapping Spidey inside RYKER’S amid a sea of felons he put away.

26 – Final Curtain

When PETER PARKER breaks up with LIZ ALLAN to finally be with GWEN STACY, nothing goes as planned. Likewise for SPIDER-MAN, who finally unmasks the GREEN GOBLIN, revealing him to be–No, wait! Stop! I promise I won’t tell a soul!

    Loved season one. I felt it was one of the few times marvel was able to compete with DC in terms of an animation feature.

    Awsome on season 1! I can’t wait to get the season 1 dvd box set. And I really can’t wait for season 2. And I’m thinking, the Green Goblin is not Harry Osborn this time? I just want to see more pictures of the character design. All I seen is the picture of the season 2 poster. But its still AWSOME!!!!

    I loved season 1, and I can’t wait for season 2. The art style and voice acting were both fantastic. I’m interested to see what Silver Sable and Ricochet will look like in the shows art style. I’m also excited to see the love triangle thing too (Gwen, Pete, and Liz).
