4.0 out of 5 stars Enter Spidy's new girl 1 Dec 2008
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
With Peter now split from Mary Jane due to his fear that she will always be in danger with him, he focuses on his life as Spiderman. However, the first annual brings a new girl to Spiderman's life. Bored with life at the school, Kitty Pryde starts to realise that she's the outcast, unable to fit in with anyone and desperate to find a boyfriend due to her breakup with Ice Man. Kitty remembers when she met Spiderman and starts to think about dating him even though she is warned not to by Jean. The phone conversation is enjoyable as anyone can remember their first time they had to call a girl or boy and it is funny to see that Peter is finding it as hard as she is. The annual ends with the pair becoming an item and e-mailing each other.

As the story continues, Spiderman starts to find himself the target of Silver Sable and her team because of his invovement in Roxon Oil. Flash accidentally gets mistaken for Spiderman and taken captive. The fight between Spiderman and Sable and her team isn't that enjoyable but there are plenty of fights throughout the volume, including a fight with Rhino and Vulture. Throughout the volume you can't help but feel sorry for Mary Jane because she finds out that Peter is seeing someone new and even though they seem great for each other you can't help but think that it may end sooner than they want.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good but could be better 1 July 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
First of all I really liked the story in this Volume it flowed really well but it was missing a certain edge to it. Ok the story is like this Mr Roxxon [if that is how you spell it] Hires the Silver Sable and her band of thugs to Capture Spiderman. seem's like a simple enough story doesn't it but don't worry ,as Bendis always does best, some future plot points get put into the mix with Spider man getting a new girl.

Now I liked this story I am not saying I didn't, but i think it could have just been pushed up a notch but that is just me. Anyway a superb Job by Bendis and Mark like always and a must read for ultimate spider man fans as it shows an evolution in Ultimate peter parker..

4.0 out of 5 stars Even Silver Sable is cool in the Ultimate world 12 May 2006
Format:Paperback
Here is volume 15 of Ultimate Spider-Man and Brian Michael Bendis still hasn't run out of great stories to tell. As always his dialogue crackles like a campfire and you sometimes can forget you're reading a comic book and think you've descended into a novel. Like all the other volumes (maybe with exception of the Sinister Six story) the balance between character development and all out action is nicely balance. The Humour is spot on and it makes it all worthwhile to wait the six odd months it takes to get my hands on a collected volume rather than buying the comic monthly.

This is a great read and I whole-heartedly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Strong Addition to the Series 27 Jun 2006
By S. Birkett - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This story arc focuses mainly upon Peter Parker and his developing relationship with Kitty Pride (aka Shadowcat). This is one of the things that myself and many others find to be so great about the Ultimate Spiderman series- it doesn't focus almost exclusively on Spiderman, but gives equal or greater time to Peter Parker's life and problems, which makes both him and his alter ego seem much more REAL.

We see Ultimate Silver Sable and her Wolfpack and Ultimate Vulture as Spiderman's enemies (though it is unsure whether Sable IS Spidey's enemy) in this arc. As usual and expected of Ult Spidey, the artwork is stunning and the dialogue is clever, and again very REAL.

Highly recommended to any reader, specially those who have collected the other 14 volumes. For those considering starting the series I recommend you go with the hardcovers which can contine 2 or 3 paperback volumes, usually with bonuses at the end, and can save you some money as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Reprinting Peter and Kitty's first date, plus Silver Sable is after Spider-Man 6 Aug 2006
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
First off, when you open up "Silver Sable: Ultimate Spider-Man, Volume 15," be sure that you read the reprint of "Ultimate Spider-Man Annual #1" before you read the Silver Sable story from "Ultimate Spider-Man" #86-90. This is because you have to be clear on what is happening between Peter Parker and Mary Jane Watson at this point in the series. That means you have to know that Peter has started seeing Kitty Pryde of the X-Men. Peter dumped MJ back in #78 because she will not listen to him and it is going to get her killed. Meanwhile, Kitty is no longer involved with Bobby Drake, and she gets it into her head that she should call Peter out of a clear blue sky and see if he would like to hang out together after school in what might be the most awkward phone call in the history of comic books.

Peter and Kitty go to the mall and then have an interesting talk on the rooftop before Spider-Man and Shadowcat go off to fight the Shocker together. The story in this annual is just priceless, because not only does it have an extremely high cuteness level (cute is good), but it is a perfect solution to Peter's romantic problems. If he is right to be worried that anybody he dates is in danger, then a girlfriend who can phase through objects (and visa versa), makes perfect sense. I accept as gospel that in the end Peter and Mary Jane are going to get married and live happily ever after, but they are teenagers now and such side trips are part of the adolescent playbook. This story is just completely enjoyable from start to finish, when Kitty e-mails Peter that their battle with the Shocker made Yahoo, and in the end I round up on this collection because they included this story. The art is by Mark Brooks and Jaime Mendoza, rather than by Mark Bagley and Scott Hanna with the rest of the stories, but that is no cause for concern. But as I said, you need to know way MJ is going crazy that Peter seems happy and why Kitty is showing up to see him after school.

Then we get to the Silver Sable storyline. Omega Red, a work-for-hire albino, mutant Russian new to the freelance world attacks the S.S. "Roxxon" when it comes to port in New York City, only to be stopped by Spider-Man. Mr. Roxxon (think evil rich guy) wants to know why he blew up an entire cargo ship and since Omega Red is in S.H.I.E.L.D. custody, he orders his secret operative, Silver Sable to question Spider-Man. So Silver and her Wild Pack start tracking Spider-Man, and since he keeps going to Midtown High, she concludes he must be a student there. But when her henchmen grab the target and bring him to her, it turns out to be Flash Thompson. He manages to escape and becomes a big hero, but now the words is out that Spider-Man is a student (or a teacher) at Midtown. That means that when security guards want to check out Peter's backpack, they are going to find his Spider-man costume.

The story here is about Silver Sable trying to get her hands on the real Spider-Man to find out information that he does not have, but that is not the real story. The situation is closing in on Spider-Man and the pivotal moment in the story is when he talks to Aunt May about Spider-Man, about to tell her the truth, and she derails his intentions with a comment and a conversation that will preclude him from every trying again. Meanwhile, Mary Jane puts two and two together regarding Peter and Kitty. I am just not sure why his spider sense does not kick in until Part 3, but of course Spider-Man gets captured by Silver Sable and then the fun begins. I like how running Spider-Man's finger prints turns out to be a really bad idea, and if the villain who shows up for the first time and the person behind what is happening to Roxxon are not particularly impressive, you do have to like the way things just go from bad to worse to the dark region beyond for our hero as the story progresses. However, I do think he should really pop the next person who tells Spider-Man, "What are you, twelve?"
5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Most Intelligent Volumes 4 Aug 2009
By Tyler S. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Every bit of this chapter, in my opinion, is unpredictable. The Silver Sable Roxxon story packs a lot twists and turns for its readers. Along with the villain sideplot, there is also a love story between Spidey and Kitty that turns out to be quite the pageturner. So far this is one of the better stories within Ultimate Spider-man because its fresher and less cliche. It reads more like a mystery sci-fi than your average beat em up superhero. Silver Sable is better than the last two volumes and it definately gives hope for the rest. If you liked "Warriors", I think it will get even better for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars hopefully peter ends up with kitty pryde over mj... 2 Feb 2007
By mark twain - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
ultimate spider-man by bendis and bagley is one of the best series out there. not as much action and non-stop bad guy fighting, but a good mix of that and a lot of peter parker being a teenager with problems (girls, bullies, being grounded, etc.) along with his spidey life.
the series is great great great. only a few minor things that could be better:
1. i don't like how nick fury comes in and tells spider-man he's going to work his whole life for him and shield. the idea of peter being...trapped in a web? haha...well it isn't too cool. superheroes need to fight the good fight because they want to, not because shield will go and take away their superpowers (as fury has threatened) if they don't comply.
2. bendis needs to cut down on the tuchas talk. seriously if parker grew up in nyc today he'd more likely speak spanglish than yanglish.
3. geldoff.
