Part One of Six
I own all of these minus issues four and five. Issue six’s variant cover is on my Wishlist as it is the X-Men portion of the poster.
Inside front cover ad is a Ryan Reynolds’ Green Lantern Got Milk ad.
Peter Parker died in Ultimate Spider-Man 155 at the hands of Norman Osborn, Green Goblin. I own that issue and issue 150, which is so great as it is Peter’s last good day before the Death of Spider-Man storyline began.
On the credit page, it takes states Peter died in the arms of his one true love – Mary Jane. Which has to hurt Kitty’s feelings, as I like to think there is at least a debate of who is his true love.
Issue opens up various people’s reactions to Peter’s death. I like how the image from the newspaper is the cover from Ultimate Spider-Man issue one.
Gwen feels she is cursed.
J. Jonah Jameson is trying to write an article on Peter but can’t get the first sentence completed.
Humam Torch, still a brunette, goes super nova on top of the Empire State Building.
These three pages are why I bought the issue. I really liked Kitty as Ultimate Shroud, the best use of Shroud, there ever has been, since the 90s.
Flash Thompson is the only student in the classroom.
Mary Jane is spying on SHIELD on the Queensboro bridge.
Captain America’s first film is coming out soon, as he is being used to promote gum and contests.
Mary Jane is caught, Fury lets her go with a warning. She wants to prove that Fury and SHIELD are responsible for Peter’s death.
Tony Stark is on his way to Peter’s funeral in a limo with Aunt May and Gwen. He is going to pay for the funeral and anything else.
I love the shot of the church, with what has to be thousands out to remember Peter.
There is a great moment with Aunt May and a little girl who Peter saved from a fire. That hug, made me want to cry. I swear, having a baby has my emotions all over the place.
Inside the church, Captain America in his military uniform and ge tells her he is responsible for Peter’s death. Which ends the issue.
