[ Read Online Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man, Volume 3 Ô coming-of-age PDF ] by Brian Michael Bendis ☆ This series is so fun I sorta wish Miles Morales was our Spidey in the MCU This trade kinda gets blind sided by the Divided We Fall, United We Stand crossover, but even though crossovers are generally not my favourite, this one was pretty enjoyable.
Just when I was starting to get the impression that I should make mine Marvel often, this third volume reminds me why that probably would not be such a good idea after all I mean, the first half of this book is almost as good as the previous volume sweet, well observed, subtle, funny, humane, charming But then what is this SHIT Our 13 year old hero joins the Ultimates, terrorists attack the United States, the end is nigh, Captain America for president, Spidey to the patriotic rescue Oh my God, how bad can a story get FUCKING bad, that s how that Divided We Fall United We Stand story line is a steamroller from hell The golden question How can a smart guy like Bendis deliver such crossover dreck Man, just a moment ago I loved this title Miles Morales, The Newly Minted Spider Man, Teams Up With The Prowler But Wait, Isn T The Prowler A Bad Guy Caught In A Moral Crisis, Miles Must Choose Between Battling His Uncle Turned Crimelord, Or Joining Him To Keep His Family Safe What Path Will The Young Hero Take And What Will Be The Dramatic Consequences Plus With The Nation At War, Miles Morales Decides To Become A Member Of The Ultimates And He Will Do Absolutely Anything It Takes To Earn That RightCollecting Ultimate Comics Spider Man A Marvel comic book is in the middle of an excellent run of stories only to be sidetracked by a huge crossover Who could have seen that coming Other than anyone who has read Marvel since the first Secret Wars, I mean The first part of this is excellent as young Miles is being blackmailed by his Uncle Aaron a k a The Prowler into helping him take out the Scorpion so that he can take control of New York s super underworld Peter Parker was certainly a lot luckier in the uncle department Then the crossover kicks in, and the next thing you know Miles is going off to war with the Ultimates to try and save the United States from Hydra The crazy thing of it is that I didn t entirely hate the big war storyline The Miles character arc is so strong and well done that even when he s dragged into some other huge happenings it still feels very mu This is the payoff that the previous volume had been building us up for Wow That was worth the wait.
I think this is the volume where Miles really starts to come into his own as Spider Man There are, and probably always will be, some parallels to what Peter went through But Uncle Aaron is nothing like Uncle Ben, and what happens with him will haunt Miles in an entirely different way That part of the book, the first half or so, is just done so well It all rang perfectly, horribly true, all the way through the arc Also true Aunt May, Gwen, and Mary Jane wanting to meet the new Spider Man For those of us who read through Peter s run as Spider Man, and who miss him and his family, it s a nice bit of closure, and I fully believe May wanting to see who s carrying on Peter s legacy, and give him her blessing But sadly, the last few issues get caught up in some kind of massive ev Ultimate Spider Man Volume 3 begins with Spider Man and The Prowler teaming up to take down Scorpion It shifts to an Uncle nephew show down and The Prowler brings a lot of the Tinkerer s toys to the battle Then the story even inexplicable switches to a S.
D Situation Map displaying the United States at war with itself thanks largely to Hydra s meddling Miles joins up with S.
D and heads to war.
The story was all over the place, but Miles shines whenever he shows up be it on his own or with Captain America My favorite part of this volume though is that Miles gets to have a touching moment with Aunt May who somehow managed to track him down.
Even the people who were hardest on Miles have found themselves supportive or concerned Miles Morales is a good kid and a surprisingly fun Spider Man I m glad I picked up thi This book can do no wrong, apparently Even amidst a mega crappy cross over event, Bendis managed to make the story accessible and to move the local stories of the book s main cast of characters forward I am such a geek fan of this series.
Don t judge me for being all over comics lately I bought a subscription, I wanna make the best of it.
So, this story is about Miles Morales, a black Latino kid who became Spider Man after Peter Parker died In the previous two volumes, he came to grips with his new powers and responsibilities and he tried to balance real life and superhero ing.
In this volume, his uncle, the supervillain The Prowler, discovers Miles identity and decides to blackmail him so he can use him in the world of crime Miles eventually gets out of that mostly through tragic accident, rather than anything clever , and then he gets thrown into what was probably the crossover event of the year a battle between S.
D and Hydra, full of superheroes and things that aren t very well explained For some reason, Captain America becomes the President of the
Miles Morales deals with his uncle, the Prowler, meets Gwen Stacy, Aunt May, and MJ, and goes to war with the Ultimates against HYDRA.
One chapter of the new Spider Man s life ends as a new one begins I thought the Prowler storyline was resolved abruptly, which is weird in this day and age when every story is stretched out for 4 6 issues It was a good resolution, however, that will probably have lasting consequences.
Miles gets webshooters from Aunt May, passing the torch from the old Spider Man to the new He saves Captain America s life and joins the Ultimates against HYDRA, which he probably regretted.
It was a pretty enjoyable tale but wasn t nearly as fun to read as the previous two volumes The Ultimate Universe su I had to skip volume 2, but I liked this one.
I d already read the majority of it in Ultimate Comics Divided We Fall, United We Stand, so it was only the first few issues in this that were new to me.
The first bit was about Miles trying to decide what to do about his uncle, who turned out to be Prowler So Parker got Uncle Ben, and Miles got Uncle Evil Poor thing.
Once everything wraps up with the uncle, Miles gets recruited into the crossover event And, like I said, I d already read it Still, it s good stuff.
Captain America is freaking out about Miles joining up with them, because he doesn t want another repeat of what happened to Peter You really can t blame him, the kid s only a tweenager But you know he s gonna fight, and you know he s gonna be Amazing And adorable Don t forget how adorable this kid isI m enjoying everything I ve read so fa
