Or issue #10 of this volume if you prefer
- Spoiler: show
There are pluses and minuses to the big 250 issue. Pluses are that Ahmed plays to the strengths of Miles Morales Spider-Man (and honestly most Spider-books) by featuring his strong supporting cast. The writing is well done through the narration of Miles and the talk with his father. And that talk is an interesting juxtaposition with that big last page reveal! I look forward to seeing just what this version has been through.
The minus is I am not a fan of continuing to push more and more elements of the Ultimate Universe into the main MU. And here now we have another Norman Osborn running around. I will say though that Garron does a heck of a job drawing the character though.
The back-up story was surprisingly good with Starling immediately becoming a more interesting character in Miles's life.
The biggest news of the issue comes in the letters page though! I was pleased to see a fellow fan echoing my feelings that there is a serious lack of Goldballs in these pages. The response from editorial was telling us Goldballs has a big part to play in Hickman's plans for the X-Men! Could Fabio be the key to it all?!!
