Format: Paperback
"Legacy" collects issues #22-26 of "Ultimate Spider-Man" and continues the "re-imagining" of the character in the capable hands of writer Brian Michael Bendis. These trade paperbacks are thematic collections, which explains why the number of issues included each time varies. "Legacy" is about the new and evolved Green Golbin and the question of Peter Parker's secret identity. It is the latter that is becoming one of the defining features of "Ultimate Spider-Man."
The recreation of the Green Goblin in the mode of the Hulk makes sense to me.I always had a bit of a problem with the idea that insanity and a costume could allow the Goblin to slug it out toe-to-toe with Spidey (note the armor upgrade of the Goblin's costume in the blockbuster film version).But even more impressive is the way Bendis reworks the whole secret identity issue between the two; a lot of super villains have found out the secret identity of their arch enemy, which almost always involves an attempt to kill the superhero in question. However, the Goblin has a different plan, of sorts, for Peter. At the end of "Double Trouble," the Volume 3 collection,Spider-Man actually enjoyed a moment of glory. Of course it is all going to get dashed big time in this collection.
As is the case with the previous collections in this series, "Legacy" plays off of our knowledge of what happened in the first ten years or so of "The Amazing Spider-Man." The result is what might be the biggest shock he is ever going to throw our way and if you every think Bendis has gone too far this may well be the point. While your jaw is dropping at that point do not neglect to pay attention to the double look at a pivotal conversation between Spider-Man and the Green Golbin that Bendis creates; that was a nice little replay he threw into the mix.

With a new look at the Spiderman story, this continues not to disappoint. For a change, many of Spiderman's enemies know his true identity. This volume focuses on Spiderman facing the Green Goblin once again who intends to use Peter Parker as a weakness to Spiderman.

I was shocked at how quick this new strip got going, not only has Peter just taken down Doc Oc in the previous volume this set bring about Spiderman's main nemesis with the first two books starting slow to build up the plot then kicking off for Spiderman and the Green Goblin's showdown.
