Review: Ultimate Spider-Man, Volume 2: Learning Curve

Series: Ultimate Spider-Man: #2

Series: Ultimate Marvel Universe: #2

Spider-Man starts to settle in to his new life. School, a job, a bit of light vigilantism, perhaps a date with MJ…

and of course decides to set his sights on the big man himself: Mr. Fisk. Kingpin. He’s a personal favorite big (heh) bad of mine. So I’m looking forward to where this goes.

Also I’m enjoying the teenage dynamic. So far as I’m concerned they nailed it. It’s insane, what he’s trying to do… but it feels so right.


Scenes that stuck out to me (spoilers):

I do so enjoy the Spider snark.

It’s extra funny because web site. Get it? Web? Spider?



I hope they get at least a few good moments before everything goes as sideways as I expect.

It’s nice to see Peter not completely clueless.

Not the best insults. Especially given such a big target.


An… interesting strategy. And he even brought notecards.

And it even worked…

Huh. Interesting. Okay, I hope this sticks, I’d like to see him with some backup.
