I've been collecting comics for 16+ years. I was introduced to Amazing Spider-Man during the Michelinie/Bagley run, and I wasn't particularly impressed with the character's direction at the time. I returned to the franchise when Straczynski took over, and from there I leapfrogged to Ultimate Spider-Man.

This book continues to be a breath of fresh air every time I read it. It's not particularly complicated; one of the deepest plot twists is that Captain Jean DeWoolf is a dirty cop working for the Kingpin, but that was obvious when it was revealed a couple of graphic novels ago.

Rather, what makes this series enjoyable is how simple it is. Bendis seems to have a solid grasp of what it was like to be a teenager, and the way he writes the super-powered teenager experience is quite compelling. I'm a little irritated with his dialogue and the need to repeat lines back-and-forth between characters, but that's his trademark.

This book combines two storylines: a crossover with Ultimate X-Men, introducing Deadpool and the Mojo reality show to the Spider-Man universe. I personally feel that Peter takes a backseat to the storyline during this arc; USM traditionally features Peter in the spotlight, complete with thought boxes, but this arc lacks that insight into his thinking. Consequently, I felt somewhat unsatisfied with it.

On the other hand, I loved the Morbius storyline. I'm not sure where it's going at the moment, since I'm not familiar with the Morbius character in 'normal' continuity. However, that's the first time this has happened to me in the entire series: I don't have a basis for comparison to the canonical storylines, and so I'm a blank slate for the second half of the book. I definitely enjoy it!

In "Ultimate Spider-Man" Annual #1, Kitty Pryde and Peter Parker went out on their first date and took down a (semi) super-villain together. Things are progressing pretty well, but this is Spider-Man so you knew the downside of dating an X-Men was going to show up and in the 4-part "Deadpool" story ("Ultimate Spider-Man #91-94), it does with a vengeance. Written by Brian Michael Bendis, with pencils by Mark Bagley and inks by Danny Miki, the story begins after another crime-fighting date, Peter is settling down for a nice quiet night at home, when the X-Men's jet arrives, hovering over his house. When Spider-Man climbs aboard he discovers there is no one on board and when it flies on autopilot to the X-Mansion, Spider-Man find Kitty waiting for him--with an electric stun-gun that knocks him out. Then "Kitty" changes shape, and if you do not know into who then you are simply not paying attention to the title of this story arc.

By the time Spider-Man is tossed out of an airplane into a jungle, things are getting steadily worse. It seems that Spider-Man and the X-Men have been brought to Krakoa, off the cost of Genosha in the South Pacific. The idea is that Deadpool and his team of cyborgs are going to kill the X-Men, who he calls both "sickening, unholy, genetic freaks who have no business being alive in the first place" and "international mutant terrorist." So the plan is not only to do the world a favor by putting the X-Men down, but they also intend to entertain millions of people while doing it by putting the whole thing on television.

This book is AMAZING! I love it so much!It has so much action and excitement that I couldn't put it down !Deadpool is such an exciting character !

This volume right here revitalized the whole series. Much of the original suspense and fun faded throughout the last few books, but this one really brought back the original....zest of Ultimate Spider-man. The story is unique and the dialogue is flawless. The best part is that we get a all you can read buffet out of tons of superheroes, without the bloated full feeling. The way that this works is that we really have three separate stories that stand alone well. In these three stories we get all-star appearances that only compliment and never spoil. X-men? Deadpool? Marvel Knights? Morbius? It's like Christmas in here!

Bendis earns his hefty paycheck by strong characterization. The fact that he can throw a bunch of characters into a stew and stir without diluting is fascinating. I feel every essense of the characters that I want to feel. This is why the series keeps going. Bendis wants us to connect and move with the characters. And he does a dang fine job of it. And by the way, don't be confused by the strange sidekick on the front cover. I was confused about the book being titled Deadpool with that character on the front too. Keep Reading!
