Spiderman Unlimited is the title of both a 13-episode animated television series (1999) and three comic book series, one of which, a 6-volume series, was based on the television series and published soon after the series began airing.

"Furry" in Spiderman Unlimited[edit]

While there have been many anthropomorphic mutant heroes and villains in the Marvel Comics and media repository spanning the company's entire history, Spider-Man Unlimited is notable for being one of the few instances from Marvel that featured an entire world (in this case, Counter-Earth) populated and dominated mostly by anthropomorphic human-hybrid creatures. Furthermore, it placed Spiderman's own origins (being a human who was bitten by a radioactive spider's bite and inherited spider-like attributes that he uses to his heroic advantage as his masked character) into a stronger profile, as he was once again faced with an ambition of his enemies to turn him into a truly-insectoid, half-spider-half-man creature.

In the Spider-Man Unlimited world, other anthropomorphic characters from other Marvel franchises make appearances, including John Jameson who turns into Man-Wolf in one episode of the television series, and a Bestial Wolverine makes an appearance as the bestial form of the scientist husband of Peter Parker's landlady, who is a local doctor for human patients.
