I'm going to try and present to you Bendis's 'Ultimate Spider-Man'. In my opinion I think USM is one of the best Spider-Man series out there and contains some of Bendis's best writing to date. I read a few old issues on Comixology recently and they were still enjoyable as when I first read them as a teen. I do think the series started to sag as it went on but I think Bendis deserves credit for going as far as he did. A lot of people dismissed USM as a gimmick and scoffed at the idea that USM would even reach #50. Instead Bendis and Bagley ended up breaking the record for the longest consecutive writer/artist team at Marvel.

Right off the bat, I have no idea how far I will go with this. I find it very unlikely that I'll go all the way to #200 and I'd be surprised if I made it to #100. I think it will depend on the reactions this receives and my schedule.

"Ha, yeah. Laura’s new attitude is driving Warren insane. There’s a lot more to that story than it seems. Warren isn’t just being overprotective. He’s dealing with some stuff. I can’t really say what yet, but stay tuned. Warren and Laura are a complicated couple."

AND...

"We’ll be tackling Idie’s faith head on. For a long time, Idie’s Catholicism was a constant source of self-loathing. She genuinely believed mutants to be God forsaken. It took a long time for Idie to even accept herself as an X-Man and hero. After all, mutants are evil. But at this point, she’s seen a lot of evidence to the contrary. She knows better." - Dennis Hopeless

"Laura is completely different than she was in Arena. She’s made a conscious decision to change. X-23 is her past. Wolverine is her future. She’s trying to let go of her deep dark baggage so that she can fully embrace this new role. It doesn’t come naturally, and her devil-may-care enthusiasm seems a little odd at times, but I think Laura is enjoying the freedom.

She’s not a slave to her programming anymore. She doesn’t have to calculate every move. She can just dive headfirst into the flames and see what happens.

"Probably the most visually fun is Iron Mariner -- why is he never in the same room as Jako Krangsen, Stark Enterprises' new Atlantean chief scientist? Then there's Collapsar, size-changing space cop, whose mastery of Pym Particles makes him a credit to the Nova Corps, and Marlene Brashear, aka Marvel Woman, and Ted Altman, aka King Hulk. (So he decided to double down on the 'Hulk' thing. So sue him.)

"Of course, it's not all fun and games -- we'll also be meeting Avengers 20XX's most diabolical enemy--a familiar face who might just end reality as we know it. Hope everyone has their crying towels ready -- this one's a tragedy XX years in the making, true believer!"

"Laura is obviously very tight with Warren and is slowly bonding with her other teammates. We'll be building those other relationships as the series progresses. Interesting things are ahead for Laura. There's more to life than Warren Worthington." - Dennis Hopeless

"Once we knew it was going to be the end, I talked to Brian [Bendis] and we agreed that we would have as much fun with this as possible. We knew it would be as sad for the fans as it was for us to say goodbye but the thing about Brian is he never runs out of great ideas. He had an approach as to how to handle this story that would push a lot of buttons and tug a lot of heart strings." - Editor Mark Paniccia

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN ANNUAL #23 has two back-up stories by Mark Bagley. The first one is a re-do of AMAZING FANTASY #15, with story by Gerry Conway and art by Mark Bagley. The story is called "My Science Project" which has a lot -but not all- the dialog from the original story.

The second back up story is a six page "Saga of the Serpent Crown" story where the Celestials almost but not quite end the world.

The talk about IDENTITY CRISIS led to talk about SQUADRON SUPREME. A backup story in WEST COAST AVENGERS ANNUAL #4, the "Saga of the Serpent Crown," gives a recap of an Avengers/Squadron Supreme team-up that ends with an ominous look at the future.
