If I'm being honest, I think all I've ever wanted out of any Marvel cartoon is for Swamp Thing and Howard The Duck to team up and hang out. And while we are still a long, long way from that ever happening (because that's never happening), we're closer than we've ever been. A few weeks ago, Howard made a brief cameo appearance in an episode of Marvel's Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H., and now Marvel has announced a special one-hour Halloween episode of Ultimate Spider-Mafor October, featuring Spidey teaming up with Blade, Werewolf by Night, The Living Mummy, Frankenstein's Monster and Man-Thing.

The episode will air October 5th at 9 p.m. EST on the Disney Channel, and will feature an impressive voice cast, including Terry Crews as Blade and Oded Fehr, one of the stars of the 1999 remake of The Mummy, as The Living Mummy. Well played, Marvel.

Marvel's Head of Television Jeph Loeb discussed the announcement in a press release:


This is the biggest event in Ultimate Spider-Man history. We’ve brought Spidey together with our greatest Supernatural heroes and some of the hottest names to voice them. We’re hoping families turn down the lights and turn up the volume for our spookiest special yet, courtesy of Ultimate Spider-Man!



After airing on the Disney Channel, the episode will be replayed the following week during the regular Marvel Universe block on Disney XD on Sunday, October 13th at 11 a.m. EST.
