Ultimate Comics Spider-man #27 and #28 Review



 MILES comes face-to-face with the evil of ROXXON.

They created VENOM and because of Venom, Miles’ mother is dead.

Miles is going to unleash hell.

The Good

Story- Cloak and Dagger regroup on a rooftop before being drawn into the battle between Taskmaster, Miles Morales, Spider-woman and Bombshell.  During the battle Taskmasters powers are revealed and he easily over powers the trio. It’s only when Cloak sucks him into the dark zone are our heroes saved. Together the team attacks the Roxxon corporation who sent Taskmaster after our heroes in the first place.

Cover- Miles swinging foot first towards Roxxon’s building. Very literal and fitting.

Action- Taskmaster takes on Miles Morales, Cloak, Dagger and Bombshell and almost takes down the whole lot with his absorption powers. Over the top and so fluid!

Art- Gorgeous! Simply Gorgeous! Sweeping skylights, spread pages, explosions! Oh lord this one packed it all!

Black Heroes- Ultimate Cloak and Miles are here and introducing Taskmaster!

The end of the first chapter of the MILES MORALES saga

Miles discovers one of the big secrets of his origin.


The Good

StoryMiles Morales, Spider-woman, Bombshell, Ultimate Cloak and Dagger crash into the Roxxon corporation. Once inside Roxxon boasts that the heroes cant touch him and even alludes to being responsible for the death of Miles Mom. This sends Miles into a rage. He manages to not kill Roxxon before S.H.I.E.L.D arrives. The Roxxon brain trust attacks and manages to subdue Bombshell, Spider-woman, Cloak and Dagger. Miles quickly rescues the gathered heroes and together they subdue the brain trust. That night Miles reconciles with his best friend Ganke.

Art– As far as art goes this is easily one of the most consistent books on the shelves, period! Everything looks great and the action flows seamlessly.

Secrets– Just what is the real history of Miles father Jefferson and the Roxxon corporation? Methinks this will be very similar to what Peter Parker’s dad used to do.

Continuity– So this issue leads directly into Cataclysm which I have yet to read (Note to self, pick up Cataclysm) and also ends with a few suggestive panels of the new Ultimates being formed over the course of this series which was announced awhile back.

Characterization-It was good to see Miles finally grow into his role as Spider-man. His reconciliation with his best friend was also heartwarming as well as his assertion that he is Spider-man.

Black HeroUltimate Cloak, Miles Morales are both here and black support character Jefferson Morales.

    Cool review I cannot wait for his return in All-New Ultimates! Bendis is doing a fantastic job with the character.
