I've read every issue of Amazing and Ultimate, and yes, it was classic Peter.Originally Posted by The Zevad
He was more confident, mature and upbeat; Ultimate Pete was a lot more neurotic and a lot less self assured.
There's also no way in hell Ultimate Pete would've gone a whole issue without saying "tuchas."
The point to every bit of the dialogue was "Peter Parker loves New York. New York doesn't quite reciprocate." Which was important for for what happened after the purple glowy stuff. So it served the story very well in terms of setting tone.
Also, it sounded like Peter to me, and I've also been reading Spider-Man for a long, long time.
I haven't been reading any of the ultimate titles for some time, but decided to give this a chance. So glad I did. I sometimes feel like in the Avengers books Spider-Man gets a bit short changed (obviously a team book, so he can't have all the spotlight) but this was nice to see him written in such a charming and fun way. I liked it so much i'm planning on going back and picking up where I left off with the new Ultimate Spider-Man.
Also, good lord this book was gorgeous.
I was unhappy with the idea that Pichelli wasn't going to be on permanent art duties, but her new rotating artist is just as good and maybe actually just a tiny bit stronger. David Marquez's art reminds me of Bagley's, while still maintaining his own style. The guy is going to be a superstar.
I also know what you mean, though. I stopped buying any Ultimate books for a couple of years. I've been back on USM since the first Annual, though, and I'm so happy I came back.

I'm sorry, but I'm SO FUCKING OVER Miles Morales. Bring back Ultimate Peter Parker. He was why I got into comics.
