I don't know if you'll be able to appreciate this unless you're familar with Ultimate Spider-Man. Kong was introduced in the very first issue as one of Flash Thompson's friends who used to bully Peter. Throughout the series he grew as a character and was revealed to be a decent guy when not being used by Flash. By the end of the series he began dating Kitty Pryde.

Anyway, all the way back in #14, he deduced that Peter Parker was Spider-Man, but no one believed him and it was dropped.

Flash-forward over a hundred issues later with #119, Liz Allan has been revealed to be a mutant (the Ultimate version of Firestar) and the following scene occurred.

Also of note: Kong is one of the few characters who has no 616 counterpart. He's also a character on the Spectacular Spider-Man cartoon, which is pretty impressive given that the rest of the cast is populated mostly by Lee-era characters.

Kong is Bendis's self insert character, but you know what? I like him and he's always been a decent addition to the cast. It's funny how much I can still enjoy this comic - I LOVED this moment too, while the rest of Bendis' recent writing I tend to avoid like the plague.

kinda like how Ultimate Whiplash's name comes from the fact that, in his youth, he was part of insurance scams... involving whiplash injuries.

I like his little grin at the end. He might be a little pissed at Peter for not telling him, but he's still thrilled that he figured it out.

Actually, he reminds me a little of that guy from Zot, from Jenny's world who was clearly an insert of Scott McCloud, but in an excellent addition to the cast way.
