Ultimate Spider-Man #12 (Stare at your hot mom Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Jul 07, 2012 10:36 am

So, once again, the Uncle of a Spider-Man dies (I’m assuming he’s dead, he might not be) and it’s kind of Spidey’s fault. But the death of Uncle Aaron is very than the death of Uncle Ben, and it’s making for some fascinating comparisons between Miles and Peter. Miles tries to break away from his Uncle’s influence, and they get involved in an epic fight, it’s always great when a fight between a hero and a villain has real personal stakes behind it, and with that in mind, this was a classic fight, brilliantly scripted by Bendis and, wow, David Marquez’s art just gets better and better. In the end, Miles damages Aaron’s gauntlets, and they blow up and kill (?) him, with Aaron saying that Miles is just like him, which is just… woah. Bendis is putting the new Spider-Man through some serious emotional shit here, and he really does have to keep asking himself ‘What would Peter Parker do?’. Thankfully this issue wasn’t all grim violence, the back-and-forth between Ganke and Miles continues to be a lot of fun, and I always love the way Bendis depicts school, even at a fancy-dan academy like Visions Academy, most of the students don’t give a fuck. I was also very interested in the panels with a hipsterish girl looking at Miles and Ganke chatting. One thing this book has lacked is a love interest for Miles, Spider-Man thrives on soap-opera style romantic subplots, and hopefully this girl is going to fill that role.
