Two Spidermans in one comic, need I say more? Well okay, I will, but I do warn of spoilers! Seriously people.
To start, I really enjoyed the first issue of this. But as I never managed to get beyond the first few issues of Ultimate Spiderman (and that matter save the first 120 or so issues of Ultimate X-Men have barely touched the Ultimate comics), well it didn’t feel right to do a review on it. Even if I knew that Ultimate Parker was dead. That was kind of hard news to ignore after all…
Either way, we get to see beyond the shock value of Spiderman meeting – errr – well Spiderman. One of course shocked to see a pint sized version of him whose suit is “cooler than” his, and the other shocked for, well he thinks the red/blue Spiderman is dead. Like every good superhero meets superhero comic, they of course end up fighting. While its pretty common superhero meet and greet for some stupid reason, the reasoning here has at least some validity. More so, they do it in a way only Spiderman could pull it off – mouthing off, worrying, and that matter not really fighting (at least with how I look at it).
This eventually ends up with a meeting of Peter with the “frankly, much cooler version of the Nick Fury that [Spiderman is] used to”. One filled with the LONGEST rant in the BIGGEST bubble I’ve ever seen or heard of being in comics. Seriously, jus tseeing Peter’s reaction to the people he meets is simply priceless here.
