So Ultimate Spider-Man 106 is to me another strong issue ever since Clone Saga Bendis has found a second wind and this being Bagely's last arc it looks like it will be as explosive as ever. Let me give you the low down on what happened.
This issue begins with Damage Control working on Peter's house having been hired by Nick Fury to repair the damage. Peter gets his stuff but still hasn’t told Kitty Pyrde that it's over though he still doesn’t know that she saw him kissing Mary Jane. Next we cut to Aunt may in hospital where she and MJ try to talk about both knowing Peter is Spider-Man when they are interrupted by a news report saying that due to recent events including Nick Fury's comments about Spider-Man he is more popular then ever!
Wilson Fisk is being shown the report at the very same time curious was to why his stockholders are tormenting him. It transpires that one of the companies Fisk brought holds the rights to Spider-Man's likeness stretching back to his wrestling days which intrigues him and he orders it to be run into the ground by making as much money as they can.
Spidey web slings MJ to the Baxter building to have some tests and there's some peter Johnny banter before Peter leaves her to have some tests and goes to work where he's been fired. (A nice reference to "The Pegasus Project" of old 616 fame and also referenced in Ultimate Power) is made by urich who mentions it as a top story. Peter manages to keep his job since his aunt (who it seems JJJ might have a soft sport for) had a heart attack and also gives peter a raise to ensure she stays alright.
On his way out Fisk is shown a new costumed assassin (anyone tell me if that’s suppose to be a tribute to anyone?) who states "I kill people" when forced on the subject he is rumbled and is revealed to be Shang-Chi who fights off several guards before Kingpin throws him into a car and the guards shoot at him. Barely escaping he flees to the roof where Daredevil intervenes and saves his life and offers Chi membership to his little group.
Peter returns to pick up MJ and they talk about the Nightmares she's been having. The FF try to cheer her up by talking about there experiences but its clear the whole kaine thing has affected her in more ways then one. Cut to midtown high where Matt Murdoch who has been standing by the entrance stops peter and reveals that he is Daredevil and simply by listening to the kid's voices he was able to confirm that he was Spider-Ma. Matt tells peter in no uncertain terms that he needs to see him tonight on top of St. Patrick's cathedral and it is a good thing to because there going to kill the Kingpin.
Cut to in class where we meet Jessica Jones who’s a senior at midtown and head of the student press. (Yes it's a cameo unless she's got some future role to play) MJ and Peter pass notes about Daredevil and Kitty Pyrde and now telling her and how it would only get worse...and yes folks it does at that very moment a new student is introduced to Midtown High Miss Kitty Pyrde!
So all in all a good issue it seems that with Deadpool, Vampires etc Spidey lost track of what it was trying to do but this arc puts it back on track post Clone Saga. With a nice mix of story and characterization. Also we see Spidey move from this loner personna that he had of doing things "his" way to talking to The Fantastic Four and Daredevil. It seems to me like we're seeing the birth of the Ultimate Superhero Community with this issue somthing I personally will look forward too.
