Review: Ultimate Spider-Man, Volume 1: Power and Responsibility

Series: Ultimate Spider-Man: #1

Series: Ultimate Marvel Universe: #1

Peter Parker gets beat up at school; Parker goes in a field trip to Osborn’s lab; spider goes chomp; etc. It’s the standard Spider-Man origin, especially if you (like me) started with the Sam Raimu Spider-Man.

But you have to start somewhere right? It’s a solid story, I like the art, and we’re setting up for something big.


More thoughts; spoilers:

Teenage problems.

Is that actually the lingo of the early 2000s? Not what I remember?

Not quite great responsibility.

Science! Badly…

Heart of Spider gold!

Not quite the same words, but it’s got the same soul.

A little slow, but he gets it eventually. Sort of.
