    Comics Bulletin - Jason Cornwell Jul 12, 2002

    This issue nicely plays up the idea that in the Ultimate universe, Brian Michael Bendis can take Spider-Man in an entirely new directions. I mean the basic elements are there, as we have Peter Parker, the hard-luck hero trying to balance a normal life with an almost crushing sense of guilt that won't let him stop using his power to help others. However, this issue also makes it clear that the book can wander where the Marvel titles never did, as this issue has Peter learning that S.H.I.E.L.D. has been keeping tabs on him, and that if he wasn't a minor, he would likely have been drafted into the Ultimates program. This issue also ends with a cliffhanger that is sure to have older readers flashing back to the death of Gwen Stacy, as the Green Goblin swoops down and grabs Mary Jane off the street, while Spider-Man is able to do little more that watch in horror as his girlfriend is dragged high above the streets by a crazed villain.
