Re: Ultimate Comics Spider-Man Discussion (SPOILERS)
Pretty much. But that's intentional. And that's not really my criticism, after all, I could've said the same thing about the first issues of ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN. My point wasn't that I'd 'read it before', rather, that unlike the last time, in this story, there is not one scene that doesn't continually compare Miles with Peter and say, "Peter was cooler. Remember how awesome Peter was? He was awesome. Now it's time for you to be just as awesome in time." That's what I'm reacting to. I can't enjoy Miles for who he may be because Bendis will not stop harping on about Peter. And while that may make sense considering the world it's in, I think it is an error in judgment.
The art is very good though. And there are some nice ideas in the story: I like the new costume, and I like that Miles has different powers. But on the whole, I found it an exercise in futile frustration.
