I really like the current USM.
Wow so I guess overwhelming response on these boards is to keep him dead.
I've been a reader of USM since I bought my now signed copy of USM 1 off the rack (CGC SS 9.6 to be exact!). For the first time I'm thinking about dropping the book. It just doesn't have the same feel it did and I'm just not feeling this new direction. I hate bringing back characters from the dead, but I didn't see this ever being permanent.
I trust Bendis and will give him a few more issues, but if it doesn't pick up it is money that could be better spent.

First of all, I don't think people are saying Miles is better than Peter. We just don't want Peter back. Of course Miles is not better than Peter, he is only on issue 18, while ultimate Peter has had more than 160 issues to grow as a character. I think Miles' story and development have been interesting, and I would like to see it continue to grow. I still like Ultimate Peter more than I like Miles.
Also, I agree that Ultimate Peter and MJ are soul mates. They are still soul mates even though Peter is dead. How does Peter's death undermine the strong bond they shared while Peter was alive?
I think you guys need a really good reason for Peter to come back to justify it and even counter the people who would roll their eyes at another resurrection. It needs to be more than because Miles sucks. So you need an idea so good Marvel can't say no.

Miles have a lot of ahead of life,but he don't need superpowers to drag him down. he's just a little kid,he's too young to die.

Miles a crybaby? And Peter isn't?? IMO, Ultimate Peter Parker cried way too much. I'm not say he shouldn't have cried, just that he shouldn't have cried that much.
Miles is a brave kid for his age. I think he's aloud to have a little cry.
I think they should bring Peter back, Give him a new identity as a shield agent and send him off into the troubled areas on a motorcycle. Ultimate Ben Reilly/Scarlet Spider?
Even if they did bring him back, I don't see any way that he could resume his civilian identity without placing his loved ones in peril again. Maybe Badass Gwen would take off after him; Proving that in this Universe she's his one and only. MJ could always hook up with Jessica; Making everybody a winner.
Jessica should probably have an ongoing series. It would be cool to examine the World from the point of view of Clone. Imagine going through Life knowing you were only a copy of someone else.

No. Bring one popular character back and every writers going to want to bring back their own favorites. Then it's back to 616 logic where death basically means an extended vacation.
UU finally feels different from the 616 in a substantial way with good story potential. Plus this allows characters to reach positions they wouldn't of with certain characters still around (Kitty and Jean being leaders of mutantdom, as opposed to Cyclops and Professor X if they were still alive).

I apologize for getting off topic but i can only imagine what Aunt May, Gwen Stacy, and Mary Jane reaction would b towards spider-woman. I mean come on, would that not freak you the hell out, I know i would, but that's just me. Given time though i think Aunt May would accept spider-woman because that's just the type of woman she is. As for MG and GS, it can go so many ways. I just hope Brian for whoever tackle this plot, cuz if handled right it would make one HELL of a story. Again, sorry for going off topic, everyone have a nice day or night depending where you live.
Rather than see Peter come back, I'd like to see the book be Ultimate Spider-Woman starring Jessica, instead of USM starring Miles.
Hey, that tiger is flying a spaceship.
Why can't some people realize that the reason they miss Peter so much is because Bendis is a damned good writer? An example of good writing is when you have a completely fictional character DIE, and readers are still sad about that character's death over a year later.
Bendis wrote every page of Ultimate Spider-Man and gave you around a decades worth of his interpretation(quite possibly the best interpretation) of a great character that someone else created. Give him a shot writing about a new character that he created himself. I love Peter Parker and his story was awesome. Now I'm reading Miles' story, and loving every single issue, and one of my favorite things about it is that it's completely different than Peter's story.
Aside from the fact that Peter's death was done really well, and the fact that Miles seems to promise me many more years of original spider-man stories, wouldn't it bother you to have them just bring Peter back? He's a great character but he's 100% dead. Every fictional character in the Ultimate Universe knows he's dead. Why would you want to read a story in which a character who dies can just show up again next year? That's cheap story telling.. it assumes the reader is an idiot, and completely insults the long term readers of the comic.
If you really like Peter, why can't you appreciate that his death story was probably the greatest super hero death in Marvel history. The shockwaves of it are still being felt in Miles' book and other books as well. Ultimate Peter died in Death of Spider-Man, but as a fan, how can you read Death of Spider-man and take that huge event as anything other than a celebration of everything that makes Peter Parker/Spider-Man great?
