Favourite Ultimate Spider-Man arcs?

#1 Posted by AdrianOpIvy (46 posts) - - Show Bio

Ok so Ultimate Spider-Man might just be the volume that started it for me. After I got sucked in and spent a lot of money on all the trades, I started following monthly comics and became more involved in the community. I've been on here for a while now, and seeing as how I'm mostly the only comic book fan I know, I wanted to ask you guys what your favourite issue or story arc of Ultimate Spider-Man is.

For me it would either be the Clone Saga or the Hobgoblin arc. Both took existing storylines and (in the case of the Clone Saga) made them better or (in the case of the Hobgoblin arc) approached them in new and interesting ways. Let me know what you think.

Clone Saga, but I think they might do something bigger with the new Ultimate Spider-Man in the future! :)

I think my favorite arc was called "Kings and Cats".

Edit:Wait it minute,it was called "Cats and Kings".

The Origin.

It did what the Amazing Spiderman movie is trying to do now, but way better.

Peter is a nerd that gets powers, and after a lot of ups and downs, turns into the Spiderman we all know today.

The Deadpool arc was pretty epic to me. Oh, and I like the morbuis arc too.

The first Ultimate Venom story arc was awesome as it completely reinvented the character and gave him a waaaaaay better origin than his 616 counterpart!

I also totally dug the 1st Ultimate Spider-man Annual where he goes on a date with Kitty. It was just really cool to see things go right for Peter for once and I totally loved the thought of those two being in a relationship (God that was too short lived!).

I LOVED the Venom arc and my only complaint was that I wish he kept the black suit longer. I also really dug the first Doc Ock arc and the arcs leading up to the Death of Spider-Man. Heck I even liked the actual Death of Spider-Man arc all except for the part where he actually DIED. I used to love Ultimate Spider-Man but personally I wont be touching the title again until Peter Parker is back where he belongs.

I honestly love the "Ultimate Knights" arc.

Clone Saga or Death of Spider-Man, both reduced me to tears!

Origin, Venom, and Death of Spider-man.

Definitely the Venom arc for me.

Venom arc. Need to read them all again really.

I'd say the Origin, Venom & Carnage, Clone Saga, I cried at the end of the Hobgoblin arc (Peter standing up in class...), and obviously, the Death of Spider-Man.

It might be one of the best series I have ever read. It was awesome from beginning to end, and honestly, it made me cry a few times. I loved it.
