Not sure where to stick this, so here it it. I am a huge Ultimate Fan as many know on the battle threads, yet Ultimates get very little respect and viewed as knock offs. Makes me a Sad Panda. So I decided to make some Tributes to the Ultimate Verse much like I did Stephen Kings Comic/Novel Line of Dark Tower Respect.
To start this is Ultimate Spider Man. Possibly one of the best Spider Mans in history. Not only did USM comics sell out 616 SM comics for a few years, it was praise as the best work in Marvel for awhile. While my Ultimate Spider Man Collection is limited to Hard Covers vol 1-5 and Marvel team Ups, I am proud to lay down the feats, battles, tragedy, and gorgeous artwork of the best Spider Man in the harsh and unforgiving Ultimate World.
Lets start of with a few Feats before we get into the Battles.
Many People believe USM is like a 5 toner. well he clearly is not.
1) Spider Man test his new powers and lifts a ton with no strain at all.
2) Spidey after being beaten by Sinister Six still matches Ultimate Cap in Strength without too much trouble.
3) Spidey Bleeding to death and taken a serious beating that would have KOed even 616 Pete lifts a 9 ton vehicle over his head and slams it on Green Goblin twice.
4-5) With one hand, Spider Man throws a flooded Taxi Cab 5 stories into the air!
6) Spidey breaks out of Super Human Handcuffs.
7) Spider Man lifts a Dockyard forklift that averagely weighs around 8 tons.
Speed and Agility
USM is as fast and agile as the Next Spider Man.
1) Ultimate Spidey does have Spider Sense to utilize his speed and agility best.
2-3) Spidey dodges bullets after they are fired and less than 20 feet away. Just dances around them.
4) Spider Man dances around Chain Guns from Weapon X soldiers.
5) Spidey easily dodges Assault Rifles fired by Swat Teams.
Spidey has tanked some serious hits.
1) Skin to hard for Needles.
2) Easily takes a Car Bomb to the back.
3-4) Free Fall from Half Mile
5) Withstood face plant by Ultimate Hulk
This is Important as it shows Spidey can survive and still fight after having the strongest Rifle in the world shot him. The Barret .50 Cal.
USM was never skimp on webbing people into KO.
As seen his Web Spam is a favorite tactic of his and that Webbing is stronger than bullets as the last scan shows.
1) Peter's Sense warns him of this killer trying to run him over.
2) Spider Sense detects and warns Peter of a second threat to him in the form of this ready to explode car.
3) Spider Sense warns Peter of the incoming Taser.
Those are some good Highlights. Now lets get to core of feats and a mans worth. The Battles.
