    So does the "War" arc only make sense if I read the rest of "United We Stand"?

    If you mean the upcoming "Venom Wars" arc, you probably don't need to have read the rest of "United We Stand".

    I think possibly maybe just the Point One issue

    I thought it was a great transition issue all round. I ranked it as such up top. Your venom guess is surprising - I missed your theory.

    Yeah.

    Yeah. But could it have been her inner thighs?

    Well, if they make it 3 months, I will enjoy the anticipation but, yeah, if 3 years it's hard to imagine a believable reason to string the readers along with it.

    I liked how the fight played out. I was a bit confused how #6 saw him in the field.

    Yeah. But I did have to check again, cuz it did unfairly look like her.

And what's there is pretty weak. For me, it's mostly a problem with how the supporting cast is being used (or, rather, not being used).

    Family
    Dad - There's been some interesting stuff here, especially in this issue, but before this it basically boiled down to "Spider-man's dad hates heroes."
    Mom - she's really just wallpaper
    Uncle - This was good stuff, though it ended sooner than I would have liked. The Miles/Aaron relationship is by far the best thing Bendis has done with this run.

    Friends
    Ganke - Ganke's a great best friend, but he gets far too little page space. He's like the new Kong, and Bendis needs to use him more.
    Judge - great potential, but horrible execution. Judge is barely ever around, and now he's apparently moving out. 3 boys in one room gives so much room for teen conflict. Huge miss by Bendis.

    Other
    Spider-woman - I like her overprotectiveness, and I think that'll get even better as we go along.
    Gwen and May - well done on both parts.

    --

    It speaks as a big problem to me that the list is so short. Peter's cast was bigger than this by the end of the first issue and continued to grow. There's less than 10 members of his supporting cast, and one is dead.

    Neat summary.

    And yet Miles still didn't get a scene with any deserved acolades that would've played as nice as Spider-woman's hug/care. Instead we just get her giving him a ride home.

    Yeah. The only problem is I always have to pause and convince myself I am saying the name, itself, right and wondering about it's origins/popularity.

    I felt disappointed too. the event is over in the other series and not here, we already know how it all turns out, this was useless
    also bad timing with the whole GiantWoman evil/mind controled, it does not reflect the way events happened in Ultimates,
    also, if there is one character i'm glad the killed this year was Cassie Lang (616), so why am i supposed to care about her in this universe?
    and that secret connection thing.. i bet it is only that Jessica was Peter's clone, that's why she's protecting Miles, she does not want him to die the same way Peter did
    something like that
    the only interesting part was what happened with Miles dad, hope that develops into something.
    You should feel ashamed Bendis, it seems you ran out of ultimate spider-man stories...

    I didnt think it was a bad issue, honestly I feel bad for Jefferson thou, he left that world of crime and violence behind only to have it rear its ugly head right in front of him.

    Forget Giant Woman -- Did ANYONE notice how the venue for this battle suddenly changed? IN issue 17 it was the BATTLE OF WYOMING. Suddenly, in 18, the battle has been transferred to WISCONSIN. I mean, I know there's some confusion about the middle states and these two start with "W" but this is f@#$ing ridiculous. Theres a huge difference and distance between Wyoming and Wisconsin. Huge FAIL.

    Well the battle was constantly on the move as Hydra marched. Maybe it started in Wyoming and ended in Wisconsin :)
