    An enjoyable start that is somewhat undone by its rather slow method of arriving at the truly interesting material. I mean the book starts off with a bang as we see Wolverine has been targeted for death, and while it's played largely for laughs there is a certain degree of excitement developed when we first see Wolverine intrude upon Peter's world. However, as often seems to be the case on Brian Michael Bendis' written material there are times when it's almost as it he simply likes to have his characters talking, rather than doing anything all that important, as Peter's opening internal dialogue acts as a pretty solid method of showing us how trivial Peter's problems are compared to Wolverine, the scene is far to long, considering how little it actually accomplishes. Still the interaction between Peter & Logan is very strong, and Spider-Man fans might want to give this book a look, as the last page of this issue makes it look like we're on the verge of a moment that will wreak havoc up Read Full Review

    This is an acceptable, likeable debut by Bendis on Ultimate X-Men. It plays well to Bendis' strength of dialogue and plot, yet leaves some of his weaknesses of pacing and redundancy expressed. Any fan, Ultimate or not, should pick it up. After all, it is the event of the summer. Read Full Review
