ULTIMATE SPIDER MAN, VOL 1 by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS My first introduction to Spider Man was Sam Raimi s 2002 film, appropriately named Spider Man It was as great as a superhero film could be in the early 2000s, but it hooked me into the webslinger s story and made me a fan But even with the movies, it never occurred to me that I could be reading the comic books So I took it as an opportunity to

life into it and presenting it to an audience of a new generation As a kid just starting out in elementary school, this would ve been perfect for me And the story doesn t disappoint Peter Parker is still Peter Parker somewhat nerdy but brainy, not so smooth with the ladies, the butt of a jock s jokes and his supporting cast is almost the same, minus the subtle differences the book takes place in the Ultimate universe, a separate continuity for the main Marvel universeit can get complicated, but that s the basic idea , but the story, while the same at its core, feels new It s almost as if there sto Peter s story that we re just now learning or better yet, the same story with new angles and twists It s a feel good story that s sure to win the hearts of fans across the board Everything you know about Peter s early days as Spider Man, from the accident, to his relationship with his aunt and uncle, to the famous words, With great power comes great responsibility, Ultimate Spider Man,

13, 7 out of 12 When I was a kid Ultimate Spider Man was the first comic I got hooked on There was no comic book store near me so I had a mail order service through Marvel that would deliver the new issues monthly I can still remember my excitement every time they would show up and how quickly I would devour the new episode in Peter Parker s life I never got a chance to read the entire series, however, so now I m going back and doing just that.In many respects, Ultimate Spider Man represents the classic back When I was a kid Ultimate Spider Man was the first comic I got hooked on There was no comic book store near me so I had a mail order service through Marvel that would deliver the new issues monthly I can still remember my excitement every time they would show up and how quickly I would devour the new episode in Peter Parker s life I never got a chance to read the entire series, however, so now I m going back and doing just that.In many respects, Ultimate Spider Man represents the classic backstory and tale of Peter Parker but updated for the modern day Everything that you could expect back when the character was first published in the 60s, and in Sam Rami s trilogy of movies, is in this series Harry Osborne is Peter s best friend, Flash Thompson is his bully, Mary Jane is his crush, and he s the smartest kid in an otherwise bad school What is interesting, however, is that much of the rest of the series is altered from the original in this update Many of the villains have been interpreted differently by Mr Bendis and Mr Bagley, most notably changing the Green Goblin into a monster and making Electro look muchmodern This update in style and interpretation of the villains is a welcome change, if you go back and look through the original rouge s gallery for Spider Man in the 60s you ll most likely come to the conclusion that they would look rather dated in an update for the series Another update in this new series is that Spider Man becomes a muchquippy character, and the jokes that Mr Bendis writes for him are genuinely funny, there s a particularly hilarious set of jokes that Spider Man lobs at Kingpin that genuinely made me laugh out loud This humor was a big enough addition to the character that it has remained a part of Spider Man to this day Mr Bendis also does a great job writing of the backstory in this first volume, not only does he do an excellent job introducing new readers to the character but also in making Peter the sympathetic character that he is There is an additional undercurrent of conflict between Peter and his aunt and uncle that I appreciated, it s not only well written and realistic but it also adds to the devastation when Uncle Ben is eventually killed Across the board, the characters and relationships are much better written and realized in this update than they were in the original run of the series I will say that the one shortfall of the series is the art, the style that Mr Bagley illustrates in is very indicative of the period, during the 90s and early 2000s the type of art on display here was very popular Since then the industry has largely moved in arealistic direction which unfortunately makes Ultimate Spider Man a book firmly set in that time period, and removes some of the timeless aspects of Peter Parker as a character Additionally, it s very hard to see the characters as the age they re supposed to be Peter and his classmates are supposed to be fifteen but they re drawn in a way that would suggest that they re much older than that It may seem like a minor point but it did make it difficult to connect the maturity of the characters and how they look with the age that they re supposed to be Overall, Ultimate Spider Man still holds up in quality to this day, and it s not difficult to understand why this particular series did a lot to save Marvel from bankruptcy Mr Bendis has a vision for the character that pays homage to its roots but he also isn t afraid to change things in a very unique way, and it has an edge that makes the character muchinteresting to read If you re looking for a good entry into reading one of Marvel s cornerstone characters then you can t do much better than this A modern retelling of Spider Man s origin, set in the early 2000s rather than the 1960s The artwork is pretty good a variety of colors, well portrayed emotions, and dynamic action scenes Unfortunately, the script falls short it seems written for modern teenagers, who, apparently, have a muchlimited vocabulary and greater use of slang than teens did in the 1960s surprised I d guess that only Spidey fans will enjoy this one.I ve been a Spider Man fan since childhood, growing up on th A modern retelling of Spider Man s origin, set in the early 2000s rather than the 1960s

muchlimited vocabulary and greater use of slang than teens did in the 1960s surprised I d guess that only Spidey fans will enjoy this one.I ve been a Spider Man fan since childhood, growing up on the 1990s cartoon and toys I may have read a few of the comics at friends houses, but they didn t interest me much In the early 2000s, Marvel rewrote most popular comic books to take place in the present day Ultimate Spider Man was one of those comics.I read a few issues in high school, because friends let me borrow them When Marvel launched DotComics a PC program for downloading and reading comics in the early 2000s, I downloaded as many free comics as I could, many of them from the Ultimate line.When I saw this book on the library shelf, I recognized the Ultimate Spider Man title from a decade ago Since I wasn t able to get every issue from friends or online back in the day, I checked it out.I was somewhat disappointed The trademark one liners that Peter Spider Man is known for spewing during fights were mostly lame The stories weren t particularly compelling There s not a lot of character development for Harry Osborn or Liz Allan Mary Jane was the worst other than a few scenes of her studying, she s mostly represented as vapid eye candy.The story is based on the original, but there are several changes for example, Norman Osborn has Peter followed, and he discovers that Peter obtained his spider powers from the spider bite in his lab.The Green Goblin and Kingpin are the main villains, but Electro and other minor ones appear as well.One redeeming quality of this book came at the very end a full color reprint of the original Spider Man comic book Amazing Fantasy 15 from 1962, by Marvel legends Stan Lee and Steve Ditko SPOILERSBy the time when Brian Michael Bendis was hired by Marvel to write a Spider Man comic that would not only reboot the publisher s most iconic character for the millennial audience, but introduce the Ultimate Universe, Spidey was not selling well as the nineties were a troubling time for the industry, including Marvel, who had to sell the movie rights of their characters to make sure they re still alive Fortunately, it paid off as the nerdy science kid from Queens can be as relevant durin SPOILERSBy the time when Brian Michael Bendis was hired by Marvel to write a Spider Man comic that would not only reboot the publisher s most iconic character for the millennial audience, but introduce the Ultimate Universe, Spidey was not selling well as the nineties were a troubling time for the industry, including Marvel, who had to sell the movie rights of their characters to make sure they re still alive Fortunately, it paid off as the nerdy science kid from Queens can be as relevant during the 21st century.Based on the original story in Amazing Fantasy 15 by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, which was only 11 pages long, Bendis s retelling of Spider Man s origin is expanded in the first seven issues During a school trip to Oscorp Industries, Peter Parker gets bitten by an experimental genetically engineered spider, which leads to him manifesting various superhuman, arachnid like powers As Peter comes to terms with these powers and trying to find a purpose for them, Oscorp founder Norman Osborn the father of Peter s friend Harry keeps an eye on the high schooler who will become your friendly neighbourhood Spider Man.Given that the source material was essentially a short story in which the hero learns the meaning of responsibility through a tragedy, it is surprising how Bendis can expand this over seven issues, since everyone should know Spidey s origin by now However, Bendis expands on who Peter is as a high schooler who is constantly being bullied by the jock Flash Thompson, whilst receiving friendly comfort from his next door neighbour Mary Jane Watson.Although there was about forty years of history before the publication of Ultimate Spider Man as we ve seen the character age over the years, returning Peter to his teenage roots not only makes him relevant to younger readers, but shows how Peter has to learn his lessons, albeit through the hardest of circumstances Obviously the murder of Uncle Ben shapes Peter in the path of with great power comes great responsibility , but even as Spider Man, he is still learning as later in this volume, he faces organized crime, but his decisions as a vigilante does make him a public menace, much to the delight of The Daily Bugle s J Jonah Jameson.As someone who thinks Spidey has the best rogues gallery in the Marvel universe, I found some of Mark Bagley s redesigns of these classic villains to be problematic, such as the Shocker Although Norman Osborn is aintimating presence as he manipulates those, including his own son, to achieve his goals, but when he goes full Goblin, he is an uninteresting Hulk like monster, hence the constant jokes of the Hulk attacking Midtown High School Wow, never thought I would miss Steve Ditko s glider riding Halloween wearing Goblin The only villain that came visually unscathed is the Kingpin, who functions the same as his 616 counterpart, but despite his menacing obese figure, the amount of fat jokes Spidey comes up with are just hilarious.Concluding this first year of the book is 13, which brings out the best in the Bendis Bagley collaboration What is essentially a conversation in which Peter comes out to Mary Jane, Bendis is spot on in writing this friendship that could possibly lead to something , while Mark Bagley who has been drawing Spider Man since the early nineties does a good job at drawing a comic that is very dialogue heavy as he makes his characters lively and expressive.Clearly influenced the cinematic incarnations, Ultimate Spider Man by Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley is a terrific millennial revisit to the roots of Stan Lee and Steve Ditko s most celebrated creation Marvel introduced the Ultimate Universe in an attempt to modernize their stories, reset their continuities and make themaccessible to new readers i.e make money and save themselves from bankruptcy It all began with this Ultimate Spider man series.This is a retelling of Spidey s origin

great place to start for anyone interested in reading a solid introduction to Spider man
