A half black, half hispanic Spiderman.  Now that is two birds with one stone.

 I never read Ultimate version anyway.

I've quit the Ultimate Universe because I felt there was too many new books coming out, just like the regular universe. I felt they were becoming the large Marvel U instead of being a nice small universe.

It's interesting to finally have the Spider Man meet and at least it's done by Bendis so, it will be as good as it can be.

 

What's this, a gay marriage in comics???????????? WHAT??????????????

I had stopped reading all Marvel Comics after the first issue of Brand New Day and only started picking up Ultimate Spider-man just before that Parker was killed then went on to pick up Ultimate Comics Spider-man once that started. It’s a great book and Miles is a great character. I went back and forth on whether to get this or not cuz A) gimmick & B) the “regular” Peter Parker hasn’t been the real Peter Parker for several years now. I’m glad I did. I enjoyed Bendis’ take on regular Spider-man and I was feeling nostalgic over a little Old School (ish) Spidey. I agree it was too short and a double-sized debut definitely seems like it was in order for something like this. It would have been nice to at least see Marvel U Spidey’s set up juxtaposed with Ultimate U Spidey’s.I’m eagerly looking forward to more. Who knows, maybe this can convince me to start picking up Amazing again.

And to hell with Quesada. The fact that he didn’t have the balls to divorce Peter & MJ and went instead with that Mephisto horse hockey (against the protestations of just about everyone involved with the comic back then) was demonstration enough of who was officially out of ideas. If anyone was destined to be a divorced super-hero it was Peter Parker.

jey, I can fully understand about the whole Quesada BND fiasco, but it's not all marvel that was badly handled as bad as BND.

I still like Marvel's other books but have stopped buying the regula Amazing Spider-Man since the BND crap.

I never will buy ASM until they just reboot that event but it will never happen so, I get my SM fix from the Avengers.

So I'm making the slow and painful change over from print to digital...what's good to catch up on? I think I may add this to my collection. Since this is a pretty good page with varied opinions...what's good?

I would recommend Thunderbolts right now, as the Dark Avengers storyline is a great jump on point, and the story has great promise.  some improvement could be done in the artwork, but doesn't detract from the gritty, seedy side of the Marvel U.

The artwork on The Incredible Hulk sucks.  I hate it. Can't stand it.  I've been collecting this title for 30 plus years, and this is the worst.  The covers are stunning, the writing while not the best is enough to play on the Banner/Hulk dynamic to keep interest.  I didn't, however, like the way they did the death of Banner one issue and have him back in the next just to change the status quo.  Have some stronger ramifications for such a large storyline.

The new Marvel Zombies is lackluster although with some interesting characters.  Howard the Duck does not do it for me here.

Deadpool no longer has his regenerating powers in a great story arc.

Red Hulk is better than it has any reason to be.  I'm glad that I stuck through the slower stories with this one.

Avengers and New Avengers are both still at the top of their game with the A vs X thing going on.  It's a little confusing and muddled, but focused enough on the issue to issue story that you don't feel completely lost if you aren't collecting all of the tie ins.

Ultimate Spiderman is awesome. I love Miles Morales I think he's awesome and I guarantee we're going to see a sea change from him sooner than later maybe now that he gets to meet the 616 Peter Parker. 

SPOILERS

 I also like that Miles uncle is the polar opposite of Uncle Ben and a really bad man trying to get him to do bad things. Seeing how that's going to evolve should be interesting. Also the fact that his dad is like Jameson and early Aunt May combined is a nice twist. Can't wait for more.

It's funny with comics nowadadays. The only two SUPERHERO characters I care about are Batman and Spiderman (either version of). The other superheroes don't compare and I'm only interested in them when they crossover with the former two. Though I liked Bendis run of Daredevil and Brubaker's run of Captain America (a character I used to hate as much as I hate Superman). Though with Superman I'm digging his Earth One books. Can't wait for Batman Earth One to come out.

 I dig Miles Morales but I wish they would have made him an original character in the 616 universe. Peter Parker IS Spider-Man! No need for multiple versions of the same super hero!
