That's because there is no difference between ulitmate and 616 DD
Sure there is. Ultimate DD has a tattoo on his butt.
Yeah whether you like one character better is a matter of opinion, but I'd prefer MJ because she's not a superhero and is much better suited for Pete's personal life, which has just been flat out forgotten for the past 30 issues. Peter having a famous girlfriend will just distance him from the character developement he needs
Or it'll just distance him from 616 Spider-Man. Which is a good thing.
We had Kitty as Spider-Man's girlfriend for twenty issues...those twenty issues were some of the worst in the series: Warriors was ok, but Kitty played no part in it; Deadpool was tripe and Kitty played a big part in it; Morbius sucked, though it wasn't Kitty's fault at all; and the Clone Saga was utter crap as well...until the last issue when Peter got back with MJ.
Now, #106 was a good issue, and he's now broken up with Kitty (just without officially telling her) and back with MJ.
I could be drawing straws here, but the last twenty issues have sucked for more reasons than Bendis' lack of ability. Something just didn't feel right to me, and now I know what it was.
616 DD is far more interesting at this point. I can't help but feel like DD is a plot device in the Ultimate Universe so far.
He really is. Good point. The only exception to that rule might be the Daredevil and Elektra minis, but every one of his appearances in USM to this point has seemed exactly that.
He has spider powers and he lives in a world with Vapires Mutants and super-powered terrorist
''Normal'' is out the window
Plus this is fistion if i want reality i'll wach the news.
You totally missed the point of the post you quoted.
We all realize its a comic and fantastic stuff does and must happen in it. However weird and un-normal their lives as superheroes, that doesn't mean the characters shouldn't or wouldn't strive for normalcy off the job. In fact, its almost a given for any average super-hero. They enjoy the normalcy, because for them "normal" is a rare thing.
Get what I'm saying?
To be fair Kitty is only whiney when Bendis writes her...i mean she isnt this whiney in UXM
Maybe not as much, but she's still whiney no matter who writes her...even Vaughan, who I loved on UXM.
