    1. I’ve been a pretty vocal critic of the major comic publishers' habit of stunt killing major characters to get a boost in publicity and sales. This seems like it should fall squarely in that category. It doesn’t. I’m a little shocked at the emotional impact this book had on me. Yeah, I’ve been a Spider-Man fan since I was a kid and you‘d think the ‘death‘ of one of your long time favorites would hit even a comic nerd in the squishy emotional places we don‘t like to admit to having [...]

    2. Why a mask? Why a secret identity? Heroes could all sign up for the police force, the FBI, or something like that and get paid to save humanity rather than be vigilantes. Why a mask? Why a secret identity? Probably because whether it be a comic book or real life, if someone wants to hurt you it's bad if they know your name and where you live. That's bad enough under the best of circumstances, but then let's add that your enemies are super powered and want to squeeze the life out of you. When you [...]

    3. The first time I read this trade, it was first time I'd read Ultimate Spider-Man in years. I'd stopped somewhere around the fifth or sixth trade, and forgotten virtually everything that I'd read. Even without the background of 150+ issues, I was still absorbed by the story. Enough so that I went back and read those 150+ issues, and then this again. And let me tell you, it makes a huge difference.It's not that you can't read and enjoy this trade alone, without any context but what most people hav [...]

    4. Tense. Despite the title of the book, somehow Bendis wrings real tension, suspense and drama from this wrenching story.Spectacular battles, believable actions and decisions by the players and pretty much they way this should've happened. Peter especially acts exactly the way I'd hoped he'd be - not cowed or depressed or exhausted by all this insanity but emboldened, brave and relentless - everything I'd aspire to be. He's so human (frustrated, impulsive, goofy) and yet more a super-man than most [...]

    5. It's good to like Spider-Man stories again. It's been a long time. Life and such. I plan to go back and read the entire Ultimate Spidey series someday. I started reading the series when it came out. Then life happened. You know the story. Boy meets girl, and funny books become less interesting. Boy marries girl. Boy and girl have twin sons. Boy and girl get divorced, and boy rediscovers love of comics. Yadda, yadda. Same old, same old. I actually went back to read this because of the new Miles M [...]

    6. It's very rare that a comic book will make me cry. Bendis managed to turn on the waterworks this time, though. I've been an avid reader of Ultimate Spidey since issue 1, and the emotion around my favourite iteration of Peter Parker dying was more than palpable. The scene that really got me was when Aunt May and Gwen were driving away, then stopped and basically said, "What the hell are we doing? That's our Peter!" That was the strength of Ultimate Spiderman - the supporting characters were just [...]

    7. Best Spider-Man story I've read in a long time, probably since the introduction of the first Hobgoblin in ASM 238.Peter puts up a hell of a fight against a super-charged Norman Osborne/Green Goblin. He has a gun shot wound from saving Captain America from Punisher, and he's fought through 5 of the Sinister Six, with some help from Iceman and Human Torch.But the Goblin is last, and just like Superman in the early 90s, Pete pays the ultimate (snicker) price to stop his worst ever adversary.It's a [...]

    8. Somewhere in the giant Atari game of life, someone at Marvel must have won the unlimited life coin and they sure as hell use it a lot. A small glimpse at the death list includes Captain Marvel, Nightcrawler, Professor X, Bucky, Spider-man, Kraven, Johnny Storm, Punisher, Magneto, Phoenix, Captain America -- these are heavy hitters in the Marvel Universe, not some third-rate flunky villain that no one will miss (but whose death can mean a good story). In the past twenty years Marvel has diminishe [...]

    9. I almost gave this book 5 stars just because I like the series so much and this was such a big, heroic and fitting ending for the series. It helps that Ultimate Peter Parker is possibly the most human superhero in comics. He doesn't deserve what happens to him and especially how it happens, but it's an appropriate reflection of his life. If he had to go out, this is what you'd have expected.However, it's not a perfect story. Warning. Beyond here there be spoilersSo firstly, it would have been st [...]

    10. Mark Bagley, the artist of the first 110 issues of Ultimate Spider-man returns for this arc ending in issue 160, to see Peter Parker out of this life with Brian Michael Bendis at the helm. It's been an insane journey for the young Peter Parker the Ultimate universe has given us reworked versions of the stories from Spider-man past, and been the most consistently funny, moving, exciting, and page-turning series I've ever read. There have been missteps (Clone Saga), but they have been small in the [...]

    11. Here is Spider-man dying. It's hard to mess this one up since Spider-man has such a long legacy and having him die stirs up a lot of emotions by default! But this comic really falls short!The Punisher is aiming his gun at Captain America and Spider-man takes the bullet -- really? Captain America doesn't have body armor??? (Captain America did better against Thanos in the Infinity Guanlet when Thanos was invincible -- and now all of a sudden he is this defenseless puppy?) Spider-man can't dodge t [...]

    12. If you like Bendis, you've already read this. If you've no idea who Bendis is, don't start here, but definitely get here. This is a great mainstream comic book written by one of the best in the industry. I've collected comics and read comics for pretty much my entire life and I've been through I don't know how many deaths only to see the heroes and sometimes villains rise again. But Bendis pulls the death of Peter Parker off and then some. The emotional impact of this story is as other reviewers [...]

    13. Argh! This is the thanks he gets? Shot in the back by the Punisher? Left to face his worst enemies alone? Where the hell are the Ultimates? Where's Captain America, whose life was saved? Seriously, I just don't see the need for this story, but if it had to be told, I guess this will work as well as anything. Why Norman Osborn wasn't actually killed a long, long time ago is beyond me. He's sort of like the Joker in the Batman books: in reality, if there was someone even half this awful, you'd mak [...]

    14. Really enjoyed this. We all know how it's going to end, but it's the journey there that makes it worth while. Peter just wont give up, which is basic Spider-man through and through. He also has no backup coming (because everyone is tied up in Millar's Avengers vs Ultimates run, giving the story a bit more sense now), but he's still got his friends, Johnny and Bobby, to give him some help. Also, I like how they got Mark Bagley back on art for this arc. It's a nice final bookend to the story of Ul [...]

    15. Peter Parker is dead. Like, for real. I've already read the volume after this where the new Spidey, Miles, takes over the web slinging activities, and now I'm glad to have read this one, too. Peter goes out with a bang saving Aunt May's life. Pretty sad and thought-provoking stuff for a mainstream comic. Kudos to Marvel and Bendis for closing this story arc with such style and all-around goodness.

    16. Pete just thought he might as well go ahead and read something that would get him all misty-eyed on a depressing Sunday afternoon.Mission: Accomplished. With gusto.

    17. I thought the finale was good, but what happened to Peter leading up to it was dumb and unnecessary.What I really didn't like is the annoying repetitive dialogue style, and 90% of the characters talk the same way. It gets grating after 20+ volumes.

    18. I have maneuvered around this title for awhile, including finding some of this in the Spiderverse big event maybe two years ago? Nice to finally read it first hand. A lot of fighting, that is the main element in this volume but it is really just all done so well.

    19. I hope TPTB never, ever adapt this arc into the movies. I wouldn't be able to hold it together.

    22. My favourite Spidey series of all time. This is actually a (2x) re-read of the entire series.

    23. Spoiler alert: Spider-Man dies. 3.5-4I felt that this was mostly in good fun. No complicated story, not too deep, and not much development. It's an entertainer!!

    24. Well you know where you are with this one from the start. The title renders spoilers pointless; it’s the ultimate spoiler. This is a tragedy, a course of events that are inevitable. Or rather it’s the denouement of the tragedy, the ultimate and likely result of a decision. In this case it’s Peter Parker’s decision to use his Uncle Ben’s death as a motivation for battling crime. In the original Marvel universe we’ll almost certainly never see Peter Parker truly die – commercial conc [...]

    25. Again, I haven't read any Ultimate Spiderman until I red prelude to death, the previous anthology. In that, I wasn't taken to some elements. This group of issues (156 through 160) I found to be much more satisfying. While it will take me awhile to get used to how young Peter is in this version, and the silly "gotta be trained by the big heroes subplot', the action is free flowing in this sequence. Again, Peter lives with The Human Torch and Iceman (i guess ala spiderman and friends from the cart [...]

    26. Well, THAT was unsatisfying. And very unnecessary. I went into these last four issues, thinking that Bendis wanted to tie up loose ends, put an end to everything he brought to life, and really make us feel for Peter Parker. But this whole situation, this whole extra mini-series feels so forced. I was fine with the original 22 volumes of Ultimate Spider-Man. Not ALL loose ends were tied, but it wordlessly showed the tragedy of Peter's sacrifice. I liked how he didn't fight any of his most memorab [...]

    27. "I did it, Aunt May. I finally did it. I couldn't save Uncle Ben but I saved you."As I read this volume, I must say I teared up a bit or rather majorly. It was slated to be the end of Peter Parker in the Ultimate Universe from the very offset. From the grim covers to the whole morbid feel that was brought about indicated so. And I started expecting, a mistake I made.The build up was so intense and the way it was shaping, I was almost captivated. Peter and Mary Jane have made up, the Ultimates ha [...]

    28. Really good and an emotional gut punch. World: Bagley's back but I find it okay cause he started it and it makes sense he would end it. The motion is not there and I truly think the emotions could be better, but he deserves to tell this story. The world building is good and epic but also very expected and a retread. How many times do we need to see SHIELD be completely useless in holding anyone. Story: Emotionally a gut punch and it's heavy. I can't deny that. It's a wonderful final encounter. H [...]

    29. The phenomenal Brian Michael Bendis finishes off Peter Parker in this story set in Marvel's ULTIMATE universe (Alternate from the mainstream comics, Earth-616). After the Sinister Six, Spider-Man's band of arch-nemeses (nemesismesisis.meisi??)--Green Goblin, Electro, Doc Ock, Vulture, Sandman and Kraven the Hunter--break out of prison (again), they decide to find and kill Spider-Man. In this universe, Parker's origins were changed so the spider that bit him belonged to Oscorp, so Norman Osborn, [...]

    30. The first of the collected issues in this story didn't appeal to me because it seemed like they were straying too far away from the Marvel canon as I know it, but I read on and began appreciating the story in its own right and was hooked from about the second issue in.Pros: I liked the way they have Spider-Man interacting with the Ultimates, especially the interaction between him and Captain America. I also liked that he probably signed his own death warrant by making one huge mistake involving [...]
