Short version?
[Reveal] Spoiler: Click to Expand
Pete stumbles across Mysterio's hideout and finds a portal device on and then old fish bowl himself. He webs Mysterio up and tries to figure out just what kind of device he's dealing with. Mysterio then grabs a blaster and fires it at Spider-Man sending him into the Ultimate verse. There Pete embarrasses himself numerous ways before running smack dab into Miles at the end of the issue.

the whole set up is dumb, but I imagine if you can get past that it has to be good. Bendis has written some of the best Spidey stories in years.

I was disappointed at the lack of homosexual subtext in this issue.

It was a decent set-up to the story, though.

I like it. And I guess we got our confirmation that Ultimate Mysterio is indeed 616 Mysterio. The costumes in the lair included both versions.

So his first appearance in that Annual will probably go up in case the MGS are following.

Really, really enjoyed this. But I knew I would.

Bendis mentioned on the WILC's podcast a few weeks ago that the Mysterio reveal would pay off in the actual book.

I am glad that I decided to add this to my pull list. It was really fun and quite an enjoyable issue. I love how they carried over the joke from the first couple of issues of the current volume of Ultimate Spider-Man, where people would see Miles in a makeshift Spider-Man costume and tell him it was in poor taste...only this time they were telling the real Peter Parker that his costume was in poor taste because it was Ultimate Peter Parker's costume! How very meta.

Anyways, one thought kept popping into my head as I was reading this issue. Since the Ultimate Universe isn't very old...would Peter be the most experienced hero currently in that universe? Also, I can't wait to see if there will be any interaction with Peter and Ultimate Spider-Woman...talk about an incredibly awkward situation. Peter already has clone issues but I think this one would take the cake!

Either way, Cap fought in WWII.

You know, that comes across as, "Bendis is a horrible goddamn writer, but once you get past that, he's written some of the best Spidey stories in years... even though they were originally done several years to several decades ago by others. But YES, really entertaining! Once you do the getting past thing."

:-D

True but it could have been like the movie, where he actually didn't fight for very long before he was frozen.

I enjoyed this issue featuring Spider-Man more than anything I've read since the Roger Stern days, which for me is high praise, indeed.

I'm glad Marvel is doing this series, I'm glad Bendis is writing it, and I absolutely look forward to the next issue.

I said the other day to Slott, I miss the days where Spidey chased down a van of armed thugs
