“Promise me you’ll keep them safe. Hm. That’s all I…ever…,” were Peter Parker’s last words as he died in the body of Dr. Otto Octavius. It’s an echoing statement that circles back to his failure to save his Uncle Ben—a lesson he learned when he failed to value the responsibility that came with power. More importantly, it circles back to what has made the character Marvel’s (and maybe the entire comic industry) most relatable, beloved character—the need to do more for those around him than himself.

That could explain the outcry from fans that ran into online photos of the ending to Amazing Spider-man #700 two weeks before its release and some of the death threats to writer Dan Slott that followed. That ending showed Otto Octavius, in the body of Peter Parker holding his own dying body with Parker stuck inside. As he was dying inside the body of his enemy, Peter managed to make Otto understand not only why he did the things he did as Spider-man, but made the villain decide to take a different path. Octavius would carry the burden and responsibility of being Spider-man. And Peter Parker, trapped in the body of a villain who almost destroyed the world died.

When last we left our Amazingly Ultimate duo of Peter Parker and Miles Morales, Peter wound up at the home of the Ultimate Parkers and saw Ultimate Aunt May and Gwen Stacy.  The issue picks up with the continuation of that confrontation.  May and Gwen can’t believe it’s really Peter until Miles shows up and confirms it.  Back at the S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier, Ultimate Tony and Nick Fury converse about trying to locate Mysterio when they  bring up the older Peter Parker which leads to a touching scene with Nick and how he promised things to Ultimate Peter that he couldn’t make good on.

SPIDER-MEN #3 OF 5 Review by Jamie Dunst

So when last we left our Amazingly Ultimate Spider-Men, they were having a heart to hear talk when Mysterio shows up to cause some trouble.  The younger and less experienced Ultimate Spider-Man attacks first and gets tossed aside like the newbie he is.  The Amazing Spider-Man figures out that this is Mysterio and that this is Mysterio and it’s the same guy who brought him to this Universe in the first place but before Amazing Spider-Man can warn Ultimate Spider-Man, Mysterio makes a whole bunch of bad guys for our Spider-Men to fight whcih they do and eventually, Ultimate Spider-Man smacks Mysterio down.  However, the real Mysterio sets of a trigger blowing up what was in fact a decoy Mysterio and knocking out Ultimate Spider-Man.
