Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #158 and #159

So to recap:

1. Spider-Man is caught in the middle of the Ultimates' battle against the Avengers and is shot by the Punisher, a bullet meant for Captain America. So far this is literally the only thing to connect the two titles. Personally, I think it would have been a lot better to have Spidey shot in a way that only involves his title, but hey...more sales. So Peter is severely wounded, and separated from the Ultimates and has to fend for himself. He ends up webbing up his wound but he's on his last legs.

2. The Green Goblin is alive somehow, and breaks the rest of the Sinister Six out of prison (now with Vulture). Dr. Octopus has a change of heart, wants to leave Peter alone, and the Green Goblin kills him.

3. The Sinister Six head to Peter's house, where instead they counter the Human Torch and Iceman.












So Peter manages to take down most of the Six (sans Goblin, who's passed out from before), but he's severely wounded. 

At this point, the entire neighborhood has seen Peter unmasked. The neighbors call for help, and Mary Jane's mother comes to Peter's assistance, and calls Aunt May.

Electro plans to fry Peter. Peter says, "Electro, I always meant to tell you...you were my greatest adversary and it was an honor to battle you. Oh wait. That wasn't you, I barely even gave you a second's thought."

Then:

(Just to clarify...this is Electro in the following page, NOT Iceman)



We get a splashpage of Electro pretty much going 'boom' and and in the process frying the rest of the SIx.

This series is so fantastic, why can't 616 Spidey be as good?

Because you will never, ever forgive them for OMD. And because they will never get rid of Carly.

That's... pretty much it at this point, right?

uh no, the difference is that ultimate Spidey is a heroic underdog, where as 616 Spider-Man has been turned into a complete and utter worthless loser.

Slott, Quesada,Brevoort and Wacker do not seem to understand the difference.

USM is Bendis just doing the stories that he wants to write for the last 160 issues, bar the Ultimatium sidetracking. He's in charge of the book that he's writing.

The same probably can't be said for ASM.
