    1. I’ve enjoyed reading Ultimate Spider-Man from the very beginning. I like it for its many positive qualities: the art, the series reads like YA fiction, and Parker is as witty as ever. I’m also a fan of Bendis’s works, especially his run on Daredevil (it’s worth reading the entire series from the beginning if you are interested: Daredevil, Vol. 1: Guardian Devil).This volume was a let-down, however, for a number of reasons. The art was different, and while it may have complimented the Ult [...]

    2. This volume is less about Spidey himself and more about the larger Marvel universe, the politics, etc. It features Ultimate Captain America (who has a very good point about the way people shaping the way they think a war will happen creating that as a consequence, I might add) and the rest of his team, plus a lot more of Fury and Sharon Carter. Despite the relative lack of Spidey (and barely a glimpse of Mary Jane, no sign of Gwen Stacy and a few pages with Aunt May), it's a good volume -- ups t [...]

    3. Love good ol fashioned Bendis writing. Him writing The Ultimates is pretty cool.But haven't we read this premise before? I could swear I've read the "breakout of Osborn & Octavius" drama before. Did Marvel rehash this premise for the Ultimates line? Or did I run across this book in a past life?Ah, read the credits - original copyright 2003, 2004. So I *did* read this once already. (Hope you didn't end up buying this twice - thank god for my local library.)It's still a good premise, and it ha [...]

    4. Another super fun offering from Bendis and a few mostly good artists.These are characters that he loves, and it shows.I would kinda like to see this continue, or maybe have a part 2 ?:)

    5. Book Info: This collection contains Ultimate Spider-Man issue #46 and Ultimate Six issues #1-7.ABSOLUTE RATING: 3+/5 starsSTANDARDIZED RATING: <3/5 stars>Along with Sandman, Electro, Otto Octavius (aka Doctor Octopus), and Norman Osborn (aka The Green Goblin), Kraven the Hunter is just the newest addition to S.H.I.E.L.D.'s high-tech containment cell housing Spider-Man's defeated foes. Sanctioned by General Nick Fury, their indefinite incarceration is justified under charges of "illegal, [...]

    6. 3.5 starsMore of an Ultimates comic featuring Spider-Man and his villains than an actual Spider-Man comic. On top of it, there's not really 6 villains as you can see on the cover. It's not terrible but not excellent, just average

    7. Don't like the art, don't like the story, I don't like crossovers in general, and Spidey's barely in it. And it's getting annoying how many people know his secret identity now!

    8. Wow that was a pretty fantastic event book!I'm not a big fan of event books as I feel they pull away from the main books and also usually have too much action and not enough development, plus the added add ons which is there only to make more money, so how does this event book rate? Pretty good, not perfect but pretty fantastic. World: The art is so much better it's insane. I've grown accustomed to Bagley but going back to him after Hairsine us going to be tough, not only that, the colors too. T [...]

    9. Okay, so, this Agent Carter is kind of a stupidhead. She lets the Sandman out of the Hammer building where he'd been kept. And even though S.H.I.E.L.D. is trying to hold many of the worst, genetically modified baddies, they invariably manipulate and escape. Bad guy rehab is a great idea, but goes terribly wrong with these guys, especially when one is Norman and is obsessed with Peter Parker. Peter freaks out a bit, worrying about his aunt and girlfriend, which is understandable. Because one of t [...]

    10. Norman Osborn's uncalled for experiment with Oz not only was a disaster but it also helped give birth to Spider-man. Disillusioned and hurt, Osborn is being held captive by Nick Fury in the Triskelion - the home of the Ultimates. He has other fellow super-villains like Doctor Octopus, Electro, Kraven the Hunter and Sandman keeping him company while SHIELD attempts to undo the genetic tampering they had subjected themselves to.The premise is built to whet your appetite for a story that would real [...]

    11. Another volume of Ultimate Spider-Man down, only this one didn't include so much Ultimate Spider-Man as it did Ultimate Six As in Sinister Six. This one was definitely less focal on Spidey and more on the whole Ultimate Universe as a whole. It had a lot to do with the baddies themselves, Nick Fury, The Ultimates (the Ultimate Universe's version of the Avengers), and some other characters. The art, most of which was penciled by Trevor Hairsine was definitely a departure from what you're used to s [...]

    12. Great stuff - things are always intense whenever Norman Osborn/Green Goblin is involved. I'm still a little put off by the whole Ultimate "Green Goblin-Hulk" incarnation, but I suppose it works better than a silly costume. This arc was cool, although it barely featured Spider-man at all - this felt more like an issue of The Ultimates. Not that I'm complaining, I love me some Ultimates. Still, in a comic called "Ultimate Spider-man", I expect, well, more Spider-man. This arc was so goddamn dark t [...]

    13. So, I have to admit I have only read the Ultimates through crossover events like this and with the X-Men, but I love Cap's bite in this universe. The conflict between his loyalty to his country and his dislike for Fury's methods seems be much blunter in the Ultimate Universe than anywhere else. But, in other news, how did Peter not admit Spider-Man to May this time! She was literally interrogated for hours because of it this time! Also, even though she was basically not in this issue, I see some [...]

    14. This was a refreshing change of pace in the Ultimate Spidey saga. It flashes back to an earlier time. The first chapter, the only real Spider-man story, takes place right at the end of volume 3. The rest is an Ultimates story, with Spidey playing only a minor role. But it's a darn good story, and Trevor Hairsine's detailed art is a nice alternative to Bagley's more cartoony style. Once again, this volume emphasizes the differences between the Marvel and Ultimate universes. This is more obvious w [...]

    15. This is more of an Ultimates story than an Ultimate Spider-Man story, and Bendis has a great handle on the characters (their initial encounter with Kraven made me laugh out loud, as did the other chances Thor got to assert his autonomy). I think the artwork is pretty beautiful, especially since Hitch gets to revisit the Ultimate characters who never look quite right in anyone else's hands, and I love almost anything Quesada draws. The story is fairly simple: a few of Spider-Man's bad guys break [...]

    16. I can see why it was recommended to read Ultimates before reading Ultimate 6. It reads more like The Ultimates than it does Spider-Man.The five major villains that Spider-Man has fought so far (Doctor Octopus, the Green Goblin, Sandman, Kraven and Electro) are being held by S.H.I.E.L.D and manage to escape. They take Peter with them because Norman is convinced that he's part of them for some reason that really never made sense to me. I guess it's because he's insane but it never really came acro [...]

    17. I liked the idea of including the Avengers, but I don't think it was pulled off properly, and the new art style really bugged me. I grew attached to the previous USM version of Peter Parker, and the change was distracting. I felt there was a serious lack of Spider-Man being Spider-Man! I mean, where was his mask and witty retorts? There was also almost zero Peter Parker, and PP and SM is what I find interesting about the series, less so the baddies. It would have been nice to see PP/SM interacti [...]

    18. This volume was okay, but there wasn't really much Ultimate Spider-Man in it. It consisted largely of the Ultimate Six mini-series and while the art was more realistic than Bagley's, it really felt lifeless. Ironic, given that Bagley's art is so stylized. None of the characters from Ultimate Spider-Man looked anything like their Bagley Designs and half the time they didn't much look like their own Ultimate Six character designs. The whole book just felt static and lifeless compared to the main U [...]

    19. Nick Fury of S.H.E.I.L.D. and his Ultimates (Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Wasp, Giant Man, Hawkeye and Black Widow) have rounded up five of the most dangerous mutants around, and have them locked up together. There's a war coming, and Fury wants whatever secrets they have. But, in putting Dr. Octopus, the Green Goblin, Sandman, Electro and Kraven the Hunter all together, he might just end up with a war right now. And, if its one thing that these villains have in common it's Spiderman.The dra [...]

    20. I've normally been rating the Ultimate Spider-Man comics with four stars, but this one is definitely at a three star level. This volume has a different artist (I know that it changes again later on, but still) and it was horrible to read not uneasy to get through. Through this art style, I couldn't even tell the four villains apart and it was just ugly. Also the story line was hard to follow, and this volume was basically very irritating. But, I'm looking forward to the next volume, which should [...]

    21. This was the volume I'd been waiting for, and it didn't disappoint. Like many reviewers have noted, it's really more of an Ultimates story than a Spider-Man one, but it's very good.The one thing that keeps this one from 5 stars is the art. It's split over several people, so different from normal and a little erratic. The big battle at the end is poorly mapped out and not as legible as would be ideal. That said, it's probably the most exciting of the USM books so far.

    22. Art shift was more than a little distracting, especially since it's honestly not aesthetically pleasing. (Someone had to say it. Like, wow Peter looked hideous and at more than one point none of the villains looked distinctive at all. I also didn't get why Peter was wandering around without his mask on the entire time, that bothered me.)But I overall felt just plain 'meh' about this volume. If anything it felt a little like something I could just skip right over

    23. Ultimately, this is not a Spiser-Man comic. This is the Ultimates (the Avengers) fighting Spider-Man villains. While it was interesting to learn more about the Ultimate Universe and have reoccurring characters such as Fury fleshed out, I was a little disappointed by the sheer lack of Spidey. Cross overs are fun, but not enough time was spent with any of the heroes. Worth reading, but I am looking forward to reading Spider-Man comics over Ultimate Six comics.

    24. A mixed bag. Bendis raises some interesting possibilities by exploring the unlawful detainment of supervillains--and having the Ultimates act a bit like strongarm thugs. But any nuance the book has dissipates after the villains drop a promising blackmail scheme to straight-up attack the White House. How formidable the heroes or villains are seem to seesaw based on the issue number, and the "24-style" rhetoric from Nick Fury and other protagonists is already aging badly.Read digital issues.

    25. I don’t want to say I disliked this batch, but…well, some of this was weak. I can forgive the Ultimate Six diversion as an obvious crossover with a comic I don’t read, but I have to say that Black Cat is really annoying, and the whole Hobgoblin thing didn’t do it for me, either. Still soldiering on - I have library leads on all the available trades, shockingly, so I’ll be caught up at some point this summer - but a few of these were more than a little rough around the edges.

    26. I should be more excited about this book, as I'm a fan of the Avengers and team-ups. Unfortunately, this is an action book and a team book, neither of which are Bendis' specialties. I don't really like the Ultimate version of the Avengers, and indeed, none of them really get much to do here. As for the Sinister Six, they are also largely left unexplored, with only Norman Osborn getting any real attention. And what action there is seems tacked on. Disappointing.

    27. Pretty good book with lots of supervillians and heroes. But wordy and slow. And not enough MJ. Though not all that much silly high school stuff either. And then there's Captain America being a boy scout for a change. Otto was actually pretty good. Norman Osborn was annoying. The art was a bit better though. 3.5 of 5.

    28. Well I read this out of order. Oh well.The Ultimate Sinister Six are pretty awesome. This story line is really more of a look at The Ultimate Universe as a whole rather than a Spider-Man storyline. Peter only gets a little bit of screen time, but it is really nice when he finally realizes that Osborn lied to him and he lays into him.
