Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #5

Spider-Woman (Jessica Drew) encounters Miles (wearing a cheap store-bought Spider-Man costume) and takes him to SHIELD. There, Nick Fury and the rest deduce from his blood that he's the real deal. Jessica thinks the impersonation is in poor taste.

Electro manages to escape from SHIELD custody. Against Fury's orders, Miles confronts him.

With Electro's electricity disrupted by Miles' venom blast, Nick Fury is able to take him down.

The next day, Miles gets a visit from someone at school...

Other then the slightly weird feeling of seeing Jessica Drew in the Ultimates, I really like this. I just reread the first six volumes of Ultimate Spiderman in trade and this feels a lot like them in tone, which is cool. And the art is just gorgeous.

I also like the fact that Nick Fury, under Bendis's pen, is significantly less of a bastard. Millar's version of him rankled very, very fast.

In the Ultimate Universe? Surely not!

You know, the sad thing is, I was willing to ignore Ultimatum but take everything that came after. But the Ultimate Universe was so horribly mishandled afterwards. Ultimate Avengers got worse and worse, Ultimates, and Ultimate Spiderman, as usual, was the only bright light.

I can't say I'm too fond of Hickman's work on the title either. If anything, it feels just a little too big and fast. Not every issue needs to be an event. Even Millar knew that...once upon a time.

Man, who the fuck does Nick Fury think he is? I'd hope by now he'd learn to not be such an overbearing prick.

He's the policeman to the superhero community.

He's getting over the death of somebody who was quite dear to him

He's hoping to not have to bury another Spider-man

Doubling down on being a presumptuous asshole sure seems likely to help with that.

Maybe once he gets Miles killed he can shed a single tear again.

Maybe two.

Hey, hey. That's taking things a bit too far.

One is all you get.

I thought he did shed a tear or two when he told MJ that he loved Peter?

Am I the only one who thinks the store bought Spidey suit is actually pretty awesome looking? Just saying. I like it.

I like it too. I wonder if Fisk still has all the merchandising rights to Spider-Man? No, wait, he died, didn't he? So who has the rights now? I would hope they would be given to Peter's family somehow.

I can't wait to see Miles in his suit next issue!

Why does Ultimate Jess look (and dress) like she's in her mid-twenties? Isn't she supposed to be the same age as Peter?

They've never really expanded her story which has always bugged me. Where did she go after she left Peter back in the clone saga?

Also I really really like Miles's Spider-Man costume.

I love Jess but it really annoys me that 99% of her character development has been between panels. She's already a wildly different character between the Clone Saga and the Doomsday trilogy, and different again between Doomsday and her few appearances so far in Ultimates and Ult Spidey v2. It's not that it's impossible to connect the dots, but we shouldn't have to to this extent!

Well, she's appearing in a covert but official capacity as a member of the Ultimates/a SHIELD agent. Granted, I doubt the Ultimates have a dress code, but she's far younger than any of the rest of the team and I could easily buy her choosing to dress more formally in a bid to be treated as an adult by her co-workers who probably average out at at least twice her (physical and mental, though not chronological) age if not more.

This was a highly awaited issue for me, this is it! The moment when Miles finally goes head to toe against the challenges that will prove he is the new Spider-man!

Miles drew the design for his black costume last issue. Does this mean that Fury had somebody infiltrate Miles' dorm room and steal the costume design while gathering information on him, and then actually had the costume made? I would have loved to have seen a bunch of SHIELD agents sneaking around Miles' school at night.
