The full-length Marvel series for preschoolers follows the adventures of Peter Parker, Gwen Stacy, and Miles Morales. The young heroes team up with Hulk, Ms. Marvel, and Black Panther to defeat foes like Rhino, Doc Ock, and Green Goblin, while learning that teamwork is the best way to save the day.
