Ultimate Spiderman was my first comic book. He's what got me into comics and even going back and reading those old issues now I can see why, it really was a consistantly awesome series for years. To me Ultimate Spidey is the true Spidey.
That being said I dropped the book shortly after I heard how awful Ultimatum and I've since become more of a DC guy.
This is the first time I've been interested in Ultimate Spidey for years. Morales sounds interesting enough, his costume is pretty damn cool and I like where this could take the series; the one problem with the original Ultimate Spidey series is it's basically a retelling of classic spidey stories, where as with this new character they could take him in a completely new direction. Introduce new villains, new story lines, play around with his powers and personal life ect. I'm excited to see where this goes.
As far as the hate goes for Miles Morales a lot of it has me angry. As much as society has progressed it's shocking that will still live in a world where a different character in a Spiderman costume not being white is an issue for anyone.
