"Divided We Fall Part Two"

After reading every single issue of Ultimate Spider-Man leading up to this point through a digital venue I decided that picking up the real comics starting with this issue seemed totally fair. I am definitely not upset that I did so. I am really starting to like Mile Morales as Spider-Man in this universe and am totally surprised at the fact that even though he is a lot like Peter Parker (he even makes some of the same jokes), Bendis is not afraid to reference that and show that it may have something to do with whoever decides to wear the webbed tights.
This issue is a big deal actually. Miles has a meeting with Aunt May, Gwen Stacy and Captain America. Aunt May wanted to give Miles something to make his existence as Spider-Man a little easier while Captain America didn't exactly agree with it. Aunt May gives Miles the one thing he really wouldn't be able to figure out as a 13 year old to make web-shooters. Not only does she give him the left over cartridges, she gives him the formula to make more webbing when needed.

With Washington D.C. a disaster, Captain America is called away to deal with The Rhino tearing apart The Lincoln Tunnel and Miles decides to join him no matter how badly Cap doesn't want that. Miles does a decent job with The Rhino and Captain America decides that perhaps with a little training Miles could be a decent Spider-Man...Let's hope!

I give this issue a solid 9/10! Good writing, great art and left me wanting more. I even want to pick up the other Ultimate Universe stuff for "Divided We Fall" so that I can see everything else going on (even though it isn't necessary).
