Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man and The Howling Commandos will make their very first appearance on the Disney Channel with a one-hour Halloween special event on October 5th. The new animated special will show the wall crawler teaming up with none other than Blade, Werewolf, The Living Mummy, Frankenstein’s Monster, and Man-Thing. That’s quite the Halloween team, and together they must fight off Dracula. I love when they bring horror into the superhero universe, and it’s been a good while since we’ve had anything like this.
