Ultimate Spin #59: Great Power, Great Accountability (Spider-Gwen #22) – PODCAST
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.
In this episode, Brian and Jack welcome comedian and writer Riley Silverman to help take a closer look at the chaotic drama of Spider-Gwen #22. Plus, your thoughts on this issue!
