Listen to the show (may take a few seconds to load):
Ultimate Spin looks at a different strand of Spider-Man’s web, namely the ones belonging to Miles Morales, the young man who’d inherited the mantle of great power and responsibility following the death of Peter Parker in Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man series, and Spider-Gwen Stacy, an alternate take on the blonde bombshell wherein she took of the mantle of Spider-Woman after Peter Parker’s death.
Whether you’ve been following Miles since he was introduced in 2011 or if you’ve just entered the Spider-Man comics world with Spider-Gwen, the Ultimate Spin the podcast for you.
Ultimate Spin features an international group of Spider-Man fans reviewing and discussing the stories in those two series, as well as chatting about the history of the Ultimate Spider-Man series and what the future has in store for Miles and Gwen.
Brian and Superior Spider-Talk’s Tony and Jaleh welcome KYLE back to the show to wrap up the crossover extravaganza with Spider-Women Omega! An eight-part event focusing on characters vs. spectacle is an ambitious plan – does the finale stick the landing?
0:00 – Intro; Kyle is the Alpha and the Omega.
2:22 – Spider-Women Omega #1: Nico Leon’s cinematic style is a perfect match for an action-packed (and funny!) issue. Strong characterization for fun leads triumphs over a few narrative disconnects. A solid crossover with consequences and interesting hooks to go forward. When can we do this again (and can Earth-65 Reed Richards come back)?
25:13 – What did YOU think? Let us know! Thanks and Outro.
