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.

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..
