Spider-Men #2!

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.


About xxadverbxx

I'm a fan of comics. I use to love DC, but events pretty much starting with the New 52 had pushed me off of them for years. Lately though titles like Gotham Academy and We Are Robin have brought me back to them. I'm much more still a Marvel fan though at this moment who I moved to since New 52 slowly kept pushing me away from DC. Often a fan of X-Men titles while I've really been loving Spider-Gwen series. Film wise I'm upset at DC though I really really want them to do good. At least their TV series are mostly enjoyable (though Arrow has dipped in quality), while I'm a huge fan of the Marvel films. Also, I still really hate Dan Didio and still view him as at least most of what has been going wrong with DC comic wise lately.
