Ultimate Spider-Man 82 (November 2005)

270262I forgot Ultimate Black Cat was supposed to be dead. She’s not. She’s back and she saves Peter. They make out a bit and he runs home. There’s also the fight scene at the beginning, which is rushed so Bendis can keep Hammerhead around for a while.

Let’s see, Hammerhead, Black Cat–oh, Jean DeWolfe gets a scene. And then some Ultimate Moon Knight malarkey. Aunt May, then Kingpin. Not a lot. Lots of characters, not much story. If last issue was a bridging issue, this one is Bendis turning it into a suspension bridge.

There’s a little about high school too. The issue still takes place on the day Peter walked out of class–which doesn’t seem right, but I guess it’s possible.

Oh, and Bendis loses track of Iron Fist and the Master of Kung Fu. They’re nowhere to be seen.

Bendis is really dragging things out here.
