30 Days of Scans Day 28 - Favorite Canonical Romance



Heh. Just kidding.

Really though, I have to pick Ultimate Spider-Man and Kitty Pryde. As a fan of Kitty, I thought the idea of them being together was really great. It was also an interesting concept that hadn't been explored yet and had room for a lot of story potential. Unfortunately, their relationship lasted for maybe two arcs before Pete got back with MJ. That being said, Bendis still kept Kitty as a significant supporting character in the title and had her transfer from Xavier's school to Midtown High. And who knows...if Bendis hadn't taken an interest in her, what would have Jeph Loeb done? *shudders*

Disclaimer: This is eight pages from the first Ultimate Spider-Man Annual. It was double-sized.

Basically at this point Spidey and Kitty were single. The two had met before (when Spidey encountered the X-Men) and Kitty had developed a crush on him. The bulk of the annual revolved around an awkward first date but at the end...

If you're interested to see where Kitty's now, check out the past entries for Ultimate Comics Spider-Man.

Mods, I'll add the tags tomorrow. Just wanted to keep it a surprise for the first day.

Spider-Man and Mary Jane. It wasn't my original choice but the only thing BND did was make me support that Ship with a vengeance.

I'm totally giggling at the Jean Gray bit. Gives a lovely Colleen Coover riff to the whole thing.

I liked this idea. It seemed organic, and free from the usual "can't have a girlfriend because as Spider-Man my loved ones would be in danger!" angst.

I really really wish Peter and Kitty stayed together. They were so cool. I mean, Mj was cool and all but god damn did I not need the angst bullshit.

Motto. Especially since the Ultimate universe is supposed to be fresh start for creators to do things that haven't been done in the mainstream books.

Plus Kitty should always be with a Peter.

This is actually the bit where Bendis establihed himself as a good writer. Because this bit is solid.

I love it.

...As soon as I entered this page, I had this reaction.

I shall have nothin further to say on that and pretend it doesn't exist. *retreats into head canon*

Now when it comes to Spidey dating someone other than MJ, I gotta be honest, I shipped him and Gwen Stacy in the Spectacular Spider-Man. Too bad it ended the way it did. Bitter taste in my mouth indeed. Ultimate Spider-Man, MJ, Gwen, and Kitty...hmmm well I'm less in love with Ultimate MJ because she broke up with him..sooo yea if she ends up acting like the jealous g/f from that point..lose more cool points for me so right now favoring Pete and Ultimate long as she stays away from an Osborn.

I just watched Spec. SPider-man up to the episode where Mysterio appears, so no spoilers please.

I personally think that Spect. Spidey is perhaps the only time I ever liked Peter/Gwen (or Peter/Liz Allan) together and not to mention they have the best depiction of MJ imo.

I especially liked how they emphasized Gwen's personality before jumping on the romance bits. Usually writers just can't wait for the romance to happen and jump on the wagon right away.

Don't worry, both Ult-Norman and Ult-Harry are dead. So was Ult-Gwen, but she got better.

That first scan should be used as birth control. It's terrifying.

Kitty and Peter are adorable together. Nerd love. <3
