Miles Morales is the only good thing about the Ultimate universe.
And while that's my personal opinion, I think there are a lot of people out there who will agree with me.


I haven't kept up with him the way I wanted to, mainly because I hate the universe he lives in, but after reading this, I've renewed my vow to find all of the volumes that I've missed.
I love this kid!
I wanna squish him, and hug him, and then make sure he eats a sandwich or something before he goes out on patrol...

Weeellll, it had to happen eventually didn’t it? Brian Bendis’ surprisingly-consistent run of near-faultless Miles Morales comics comes to an end with this newly-renumbered title launched in the wake of the Ultimates event, Cataclysm. Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man, Volume 1: Revival is unfortunately pretty crap.

I’ll probably never bother with Cataclysm as it sounds like generic event garbage (Galactus rocks up, he hungers, etc. etc. whatevs) so it’s irritating that I missed a noteworthy de

I feel like the way this story resolves will probably have an affect on how I feel about this volume. Because Peter is back, and in costume, and I still don't know how or why or if it's even really him, and not an imposter or a clone or a Skrull or... I admit that my heart skipped a beat when he showed up in the book. I loved Ultimate Peter, and I did miss him... But I kind of feel like he should have been left in peace, and that Miles should have been allowed to take sole control of his book. B ...more

Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man starts off normal. Two years have passed since Peter Parker died and Aunt May is holding a memorial service at the house in his honor. Everyone comes, reminisces, and talks about what life would be like if Peter was still alive...and then things go crazy


Yeah that's Peter and yeah he's alive hence the title Revival. He's not the only one who's alive who should be dead.

The volume felt rushed and all it did was open up tons of questions. I have to say I'm disa

I like Miles! Unfortunately for me, this little run is way too short and skimpy. I read about Parker's death, I read Superior Spider-Man, but I missed the whole Ultimates run and Galacticus, so just trying to get to know Miles for the first time here is not exactly the smartest thing I could have done. *sigh*

Still, I love the spoilers. The whole passing-the-mantle thing. Primo. The art's good. The story is pretty decent. I love what's happened to Green Goblin. I can chew the cud on this one for

This was good but all it really seemed to do was raise questions about Ultimate Peter Parker and then not answer them within this volume. Curse you, Bendis, for making me read more of your comics!

It was also pretty cool to see Miles take on Norman Osborn.

I am going to start with what might appear as a spoiler for non-comic book readers, but no surprise to those that have been reading them for the longest time: SPIDER MAN IS NOT DEAD, MILES MORALES IS SIMPLY ANOTHER VERSION OF SPIDER MAN FOR THE ULTIMATE UNIVERSE, WHICH IS OFTEN TIMES NOT THE BEST COMIC UNIVERSE LINE, THEREFORE, DO NOT WORRY, PETER PARKER WILL RETURN.
Now with that put of the way, Miles Morales is an adorable little twit! I doubt he will be Peter Parker material (only he can fill

SO good! Dang cliffhanger, though! I can't wait to read the novelization by Jason Reynolds.

I love Miles Morales as a character, but I really wish we could just follow his story. In this volume, it appears that the previous Ultimate Spider-Man, Peter Parker, is alive and well and back from the grave. Along with his nemesis, Norman Osborn/Green Goblin. Really? Do we have to keep re-hashing this stuff over and over? I'd much rather read about Miles' own, original adventures. And there's enough of that in here to warrant a four-star rating. But I want more. I sure hope this stupid Secret ...more

Miles Morales has my heart. He is a superb character! Bendis did a great job bringing Miles to life in this volume. I had never read anything with Miles Morales before. Honestly, I was a little afraid to. I only knew Peter Parker as Spider-Man and have long gotten past that rigidity since the Spider-Verse arc and the Superior Spider-Man arc. Finally, I decided to give good ole' Ultimate Spider-Man a try, and I regret not jumping on sooner.

This is not the first official volume that features Mil
There is very little reason that this is a new volume, it simply carries on the Ultimate Spider-Man story under a new title. In the Ultimate Universe, a sort of parallel world to the main Marvel Continuity, Peter Parker died fighting the Green Goblin and teenager Miles Morales took over the mantle.

At least, that is what everyone thought. In this volume both Peter Parker and the Green Goblin have reappeared. Whether it is genuinely them or not remains to be seen. Whilst this certainly ramps up th

As usual, this series would frustrate the hell out of me in single issues, but reading the trade makes up for that. This volume sets up some excellent action and new mysteries as Bendis plays with his own continuity and brings back some fan favourite characters to great effect. The story ends with a 'to br continued' and it's a testament to Bendis that I want to read the next volume already. David Marquez's art is top-notch, highly detailed and full of life, thanks to Justin Ponsor's colour pale ...more

After a few volumes of meandering through New Ultimates stories, Ultimate Spider-Man is suddenly firing on all cylinders again. This volume has a great focus on Miles' personal life, a great look at a variety of supporting cast members, and a great return to a classic USM villain. I am entirely obsessed with the 3+ cliffhangers left dangling in this book, and want to find out what happens next!!
Jun 10, 2015 rated it it was ok
not for Spidey n00bs such as myself - too many characters and previous plots to know about.

Kate Bishop is in this but she is eleventy times more interesting in Hawkeye.

no interesting female characters... they all look the same and basically just cry.

I thought I had gotten all of the parts from the library but apparently not... There are big gaps that I'm not sure what's going on but can still follow what's happening. So I'll try to find the bits that I've missed!

Aw man! Do I really have to pick between Spider-mans? I love them all! But Peter's being a big jerk to Miles, so something fishy is going on (besides the fact Peter's not actually DEAD). Methinks clones are running amok in this series...

It's not just that I have these issues in my personal comic book collection. It's not just that Miles is a character I've immensely enjoyed reading. It's not even the (admittedly controversial) re-introduction of more than one previously dead characters. It's about the overarching emotional experience you get when reading this story.

There are so many memorable character moments in this arc, it's nearly impossible to count them all. From the 2-page spreads depicting what his friends and family th

One of the better comics from Ultimate Marvel I have read. I came to this after seeing Into the Spider-verse, and I like that version of Miles better, but this is still pretty good. All of the characters coming to remember Peter feel like real people, which often doesn't seem to be the case with Ultimate characters. The knock-off Spider-Man characters and what happens to Norman Osborne are an interesting addition, but they add to the frustration that this collection doesn't really conclude an ar ...more

Before reading this, I was hitherto uninitiated into the Miles Morales version of our friendly neighborhood superhero other than the fact that I was aware that there was an uproar over the internet because of a "black Spiderman." To simply call him "black Spiderman" is to completely ignore the fully rounded character the writer has created, a character whose intellect, humanity and ability to cleverly quip are on par with even Golden Age Peter Parker. Highly, highly, highly recommended, and I wi ...more

Miles is so mediocre. Actually, I would call him a below average character. Incredibly boring. He's not funny, insightful, creative, or fun. But of course, he's a "good" person so I'm supposed to care. I admire his courage, but it's hard to not think about Peter.

This was okay. Perhaps the next volume will be better?? And with less Norman Osborn? I just hate the Green Goblin so much. One of the lamest villains ever.
Jan 01, 2019 rated it it was ok
Incomplete story that introduces some BIG questions with literally zero pay-off. Not worthy of being a standalone volume/collection. I'd give it 1 star but there's at least some some creative art in here and some great Miles-Ganke banter.

Best book to kick off with in 2019! Especially after having seen the amazing film, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. There's a reason why Miles Morales is one of my favorite superheroes!
