I think the famous line intimating that nobody stays dead in comics except Bucky really needs to be changed to nobody stays dead except the Ultimate version of Peter Parker. Well after the character’s death and the rise of Miles Morales as the latest character to wear the webs, there’s nothing to indicate a possibility of the original Ultimate Spidey’s return. That’s probably a good thing as the new version of the character seems to be really catching on with fans and now that Pete’s officially coming back in the regular Marvel U, it’s not like web-heads won’t be able to get their Parker fix month-to-month.
There are also a pair of ‘shocking’ statements in that press release that you see above, so I’m going to go ahead and guess that Ultimate Spider-Man is in for a rough few months ahead. That ‘sinister’ statement doesn’t sound too great either… or maybe it does. As long as you’re not that friendly neighborhood Spider-Man that is.
Ultimate Spider-Man #200 (nice to see a book actually allowed to get that high in numbers in the modern age) will swing onto stands on April 2nd from the team of longtime Spider-Man artist Mark Bagley, fellow artists Dave Marquez and Mark Brooks, and Brian Michael Bendis.
