Ultimate Spider-Man #120
‘Apocalypse, Part 3’
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Penciler: Stuart Immonen
Inker: Wade von Grawbadger
It is, perhaps, issues like this one that makes Secret Invasion so hard to stomach.
Brian Bendis is an amazingly talented writer when it comes to small stories. Here, he takes the juvenile ‘Spidey and His Amazing Friends’ concept and turns it into an engaging and fun yarn about becoming a mutant. And even Wolverine comes across in this cameo as Ultimate Wolverine.
So when this same writer tells us to believe that Secret Invasion will be good, you want to believe him.
Unfortunately, all the evidence is to the contrary.
From Marvel (preview): “Now that one of Peter Parker’s fellow students has been outted as a mutant, the struggle for their heart and mind is on! Magneto, Master of Magnetism, claims the new mutant as his own, but the X-Men aren’t about to let that stand! It’s a battle royale that rages across the city with the web-slinger caught in the middle!” On sale March 26, 2008.
