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.
