Book Description

6 Sep 2006
One of the most ruthless villains in the history of the Marvel Universe - the fan-favorite Carnage - gets the Ultimate treatment! And though young Peter Parker has proven himself time and time again on the field of battle, can even he hope to defeat this heartless killing machine? Also, a bizarre occurrence brings Spider-Man and Wolverine together for the weirdest team-up in super-hero history! As the two struggle to get to the bottom of this mystery, their lives literally unravel. Why are both heroes too concerned with their own lives to work together? Plus: Johnny Storm realizes that despite his new flame powers and fame on the horizon, he still doesn't have a high-school diploma. And where does the young New Yorker enroll? Why, none other than a certain Queens high school that also counts one Peter Parker - Spider-Man - as a student. Collects Ultimate Spider-Man #60-71.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great tale, but not quite Venom... 22 Dec 2008
By Mr. G
Format:Paperback
I enjoyed this story greatly, and part of what I enjoy about the ultimate universe is that it tries to connect everyone in the marvel universe together.
What I mean by this is that it ties almost all of the characters together by having them previously worked together in the past or have them all working towards some sort of similar goal, i.e. the super soldier formula, which has linked the hulk, cap america, and the green goblin among others throughout this ultimate world.
This is done again in this book, having peters father, and eddies father work together to create the venom outfit prior to peter/eddies birth. And it works well, giving the characters a little more depth and the tale a little more believability.
So, without trying to give too much away, the book works well, good back story, and a sensible introduction of eddie brock to this universe. The interaction between the two is well written, the jealousy of peter, that eddie comes to feel, is well written within such a short space of time, which makes the introduction of the black outfit, leading to venom, work well.
Story is told well but I personally feel that the interpritation of venom is not... the best. I say this because this version is not too dissimilar from the re-interpretation of the green goblin, very hulk-esque. It's more like the hulk in the venom outfit! That said it is only a minor gripe, and I hear that these minor creases are to be ironed out shortley!
All in all a 9 out of 10!

5.0 out of 5 stars As good as it gets 11 Nov 2004
Format:Paperback
When Ultimate Spider-man started it was like a breath of fresh air. Although this new interpretation of Spider-man was different it was proving to be some of the best Spider-man work done. But, when I heard news the extremely popular Spider-man villain was to become "Ultimised", as a lifelong Spider-man fan the first thoughts I had were this will not work. I was made to eat those words when I read Ultimate Spider-man Vol.5 Venom.
This new interpretation of one of Spider-man most successul villains manages to be better than the original story told in the early 90's. Yes the alien costume story in the original Spider-man comics is great but is nowhere near as realistic as the Venom origin told by Brian Michael Bendis in Ultimate Spider-man.
Vol. 5 of Ultimate Spider-man picks up after the end of the Legacy story and the momentum just keeps on going. Throughout the story we are introduced to the new Eddie Brock (younger but still not a nice person) and we also learn a helluva lot more about Peter Parker's parents. This story is one of the darker Spider-man stories with the majority of action being set in darkened settings (the rain soaked confrontation between Peter and Venom is astonoshing) and once again Peter learns that with Great power comes great responsibility.
The writing is as good as all Bendis' previous work on Ultimate Spider-man with Mark Bagley's art and Art Thiberts inking also deserve praise.
The only problems I had with "Venom" was we don't get to see a showdown between with Peter in full Spider-man costume but this is a very slight niggle, secondly, this book only works at its best when it is looked at in the full context of the Ultimate Spider-man universe so you might have to read volumes 1 thru 4 to get maximum benefit out of the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great volume 5 Mar 2014
By James
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Spider-man is probably my favorite superhero but I hadn't read any of the comics until I started the ultimate spider-man series. I've enjoyed all the previous volumes and this is no different. It is well written, it is emotional and the art is great as always.

The only thing that annoys me is the reference to something that happens in the ultimate marvel team up series and it kinda seems like a ploy to get you to spend money on that. Also as some people have pointed out they have done a retcon of Eddie Brock as in volume 3 there was a reporter called Eddie Brock but we never got to see his face whereas the Eddie Brock in this is not a reporter and there is no reference to it being made.

2.0 out of 5 stars not as advertised 16 Jan 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I expected the same type of book in the picture, but it wasn't, all the other books in my collection have the blue or red volumes either side of the front and back covers like in the picture, the book i revived had a fully white cover and dose not look good next to my collection,
