Ultimate Spider-Man #111

Background

Recently, Peter and MJ have gotten back together, leaving his troubled relationship with Kitty Pryde, a member of the world famous X-Men, in shambles. Peter and Mary Jane are shocked to discover that Kitty now goes to school with them. In their class.

Meanwhile, Spider-Man's adventures led not only to the destruction of the Parker house, but also to Aunt May's discovery of Peter's secret identity. But before Peter can explain himself to the woman who raised him, Aunt May has a heart attack.

Aunt May is recovering. This is her first day home...

Story 'The Talk'

Aunt May and Peter are standing in front of the house. It's totally rebuilt, thanks to S.H.I.E.L.D. who helped trash it in the first place. In the kitchen, Peter and Aunt May sit down for a long talk. How Peter got his powers, what the deal is with Norman Osborn, the lot. The guilt over Ben's death. And it turns out Aunt May is feeling guilty as well. If she hadn't lived in that house...

Then we see Spider-Man fighting a villain called Spot, but the talk goes on. About Roxxon, about violence, about how Aunt May and Peter feel about each other. The issue ends with Spidey swinging across town, headed towards new adventures.

General Comments

A very boring, boring issue. Read it yourself, if you dare. Anyway, the only interesting part is the about guy Aunt May is seeing, sort of. His name is Miles. Well, let's see how this turns out... will he or won't he become the Jackal?

Overall Rating

Yep, only 1 web. Utterly boring story, but magnificent art by Bagley! Check out that final page, excellent! I'll miss him...
