Great Book

May 20, 2014

Yet more dreadfully awful writing by the worst writer in the industry. This new take on Spider-Man in the Ultimate universe (a pointless universe all around that should have just been ended long ago) gives the reader an even younger new character who takes on the mantle in the wake of the death of the first Spidey. It's a pretty dull character, one who's little more than a parrot for the obnoxiousness of the writer himself.

after just reading this collection i was very skeptical of ultimate history since ultimatum but this title really brought a human approach to being a superhero that miles brings to it and if this is your introduction to the ultimate verse miles life will help you understand and i love to see him mature into his own man

Bendis' second revamping of Spider-Man throws caution to the winds by completely overhauling the setting and various cosmetic externals. This drew all the media attention and some fan ire. But the truly radical aspect of this book is that Bendis has given the classic engine of the story a brisk tune-up. This Spider-Man is younger and more secure in his friendships and family. Instead of being crippled by teenage self-doubt, he finds himself challenged to navigate a daunting passage from childhood to manhood and is forced by circumstance to re-examine his values and make his own choices. He doesn't act from guilt, as was true for the original Spider-Man over the death of Uncle Ben. This hero must do as all teenagers do and figure out how to be his own person. This makes him instantly relatable in ways far more profound than the oft-morose Peter Parker. The only drawback to this volume is the lack of an outstanding villain -- but, really, in this world, fisticuffs are kind of beside the point. The art is sunny and cheery, but slick where it needs to be (such as the rad Spider-costume). Top-notch entertainment.
