Ultimate Spider-Man 81 (October 2005)

Ultimate Jean DeWolfe is awesome and her rooftop conversation with Peter’s great–Bendis seems to realize he needs a mentor of some kind, but never keeps anyone consistently–but the issue’s sort of a waste.

Besides DeWolfe confirming the Kingpin’s read of the world is basically right and Peter should take on bad guys regardless of who informs him about them… there’s nothing going on here. Except a kung fu fight with Ultimate Iron Fist and Ultimate Master of Kung Fu versus a gang. It’s not Bagley’s fault it’s boring to read, it’s Bendis’s for giving the pair so many adversaries the art is too busy.

And then there’s another “did Peter really mess up that bad” moment before Bendis brings in Black Cat for the cliffhanger. He’s just using it as a bridge issue.

It’s not a bad issue, just a pointless one. Bendis could’ve done a lot better.
