ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN ANIMATED

At its upfront presentation on Wednesday, Disney XD released a description of Marvel's upcoming Ultimate Spider-Man animated series that provided new details.

Disney XD announced the show as "the centerpiece of an upcoming Marvel programming block" on the network.

Here's how the show was described:

"This animated series from Marvel follows Peter Parker who, as the storyline begins, has been Spider-Man for just one year. He's fought villains, saved lives, but still has much to learn about being a super-hero. Now, Nick Fury gives Peter the chance to go to the next level -- to train to be a real super-hero and become The Ultimate Spider-Man. But before he can do that, Peter will have to learn how to work with a team of fellow teenage super-heroes."

The creators of Ultimate Spider-Man include Paul Dini, Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, Duncan Rouleau, Steven T. Seagle and Brian Michael Bendis.

The Avengers: Earth's Mightest Heroes was among the returning series announced. Fifty-two episodes of The Avengers are being produced.

MARVEL COMICS' 15 LOVE

Marvel Comics has announced a July launch for 15 Love, a three-issue mini-series written by Andi Watson with art by Tommy Ohtsuka.

Here's how Marvel describes the book:

"Mill Collins is about to learn that life is anything but a piece of cake when the length of your high school career depends on the strength of your serve! But when Mill's slipping grades threaten to steal away her scholarship from the exclusive Wayde Tennis Academy, she'll have to look for help from the most unlikely coach to climb her way back up the bracket and into the record books!"

"The story Andi's put together is a terrific one -- the story of underdog Mill Collins and her quest to prove that she can make a name for herself doing the one thing she loves most of all -- playing tennis," said editor Jordan White. "The characters are real and really draw you in -- even if you know nothing about tennis, you know what itŐs like to fight for a dream."

The first issue will have a cover by Sho Murase, will be 56 pages and will cost $4.99.
