The refreshed site, designed to captivate the next generation of Marvel fans with digital products and destinations that younger fans will love, will be headlined by an all-new Spider-Man kids destination featuring games and immersive activities starring Marvel’s legendary webslinger.
At spiderman.marvelkids.com, younger Marvel fans can take on the role of Spider-Man in a variety of interactive and amazing games including:
Spider-Man Web Shooter – Take on the role of Spider-Man and use your Web Shooters to help defeat some of his all-time greatest rivals – Rhino, Lizard, The Green Goblin and more!

Spider-Man Web-Slinger – Use your spider-skills to web-swing, slide and jump to avoid danger and collect coins to try to get the highest score you can!
Fans will also find an exciting web of activities including Spider-Man downloadable coloring pages, mazes, word searches and Sudoku.
In addition to the exciting games that MarvelKids.com offers, fans will also be able to watch “Marvel’s Ultimate-Spider-Man” video clips – including sneak peeks at upcoming episodes of the hit series “Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors,” airing inside the Marvel Universe on Disney XD.
As a thank you to our loyal young Spidey fans and in honor of the relaunch of MarvelKids.com, Marvel has created a brand new Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man: Web-Warriors Friends and Foes Character Guide filled with over 20 pages of content – character bios, power grids and backstories – everything kids who love Spider-Man and the Marvel’s Ultimate Spider Man animated series would ever want to know about their favorite Web Warrior’s friends and foes. This downloadable guide is available exclusively on MarvelKids.com.
“Kids and digital go hand in hand, so we created a new online experience exclusively for kids that allows them to engage with the Marvel heroes they love and even be a hero themselves through the games,” said Kristin Vincent, Marvel’s VP of Digital Products. “We’ll keep rolling out new games, videos and other content so kids can have fun online with Spider-Man and soon with the Avengers while in a kid-safe digital environment.”
Over the next several months MarvelKids.com will be expanding even more with a marvelous Avengers kids destination with new Avengers and Spider-Man games, a digital comics section, and more digital features featuring everyone’s favorite Marvel Super Heroes – Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Black Widow, and more!
