More continued excellence from Bendis and Marquez as the Roxxon storyline really starts to come together. Miles is back in action as Spider-Man, but all throughout this issue he was confronted with reasons for why he quit in the first place.

Ultimate Taskmaster (who is hardcore) has Miles, Spider-Woman and Bombshell paralysed, and it’s only though inadvertent use of his Venom Blast powers that Miles was able to escape. The fight between these characters was a lot of fun, especially as it slowly dawned on Spider-Man and Spider-Woman that Taskmaster was able to absorb their powers and send it back to them. It was great seeing the twin inner dialogues of Miles and Jessica, with Miles doubting himself and thinking he’s crap, but Jessica seeing just how great he is. It was surprising to me how emotional it was to once again be inside what is essentially Ultimate Peter Parker’s head, I still miss that character, even if Miles is great.

Of course, Bombshell, being an idiot, doesn’t cotton on to Taskmaster’s powers that fast, and basically explodes everything. Cloak and Dagger then get involved, and thanks to Cloak, Taskmaster is taken out. So now we’ve got all of the characters on the same page, Cloak and Dagger realise that Bombshell is on their side, and everyone’s off to get Roxxon! Oh yes, I loved how Spider-Woman has gone rogue from SHIELD here, I can’t wait for the next part in this story.

As I said, this book is just consistently great, the artwork from David Marquez just gets better and better, and Bendis just writes Miles’ character so damn well, and he’s doing an excellent job at building a great supporting cast for him. Even though Ganke and Miles’ dad and Katie Bishop are absent here, the likes of Cloak, Dagger, Bombshell and Spider-Woman make for great additions. Just more proof that moving Miles into the Marvel Universe would be stupid, Bendis is building an exciting world and cast here, they aren’t going to get rid of it.

When his powers became obvious he reminded me of Bishop.

I dropped this series after the first arc but I am slowly starting to regret that decision. Is this something that would be worth my time to pick up in trade?

Reminds me of Persuader from the Legion of Super-Heroes, circa the 5YG.
