Ultimate Spider-Man #125

Ultimate Spider-Man #125

This was probably my favorite book of the week. I can’t believe it’s another Spider-Man book with Venom in it. In this one Venom is still Eddie Brock and Eddie was captured by some people who want to take the suit because it’s worth a lot of money. In one part he gets hungry and tries to escape by turning into Venom but it doesn’t work.

Spider-Man was beat up and on the ground and the cops went after him and wanted to arrest him. They have their guns pointed to him and he’s trying to tell them to go after Venom instead. One lady was happy and she said Spider-Man saved her baby. Spider-Man is happy because someone is finally nice to him and escapes from the police.

I thought that the Beetle was very cool. He doesn’t look like my action figure but this costume is better. I like that he was a new person in the comic. He’s a real neat bad guy and his costume is great. I like how he broke into the base and started shooting to try and rescue Venom. I don’t know why he wanted to free Venom though. It was really cool when Beetle sliced a piece of Venom’s tentacle off.

This Venom is weird, too. Once he gets free, he takes one of the people who was knocked out by the Beetle and eats them. This Venom eats a lot of people. He’s crazy.

The fight between the Beetle and Venom was great. They were going all around the city fighting and smashing things and then Spider-Man found Venom and started fighting him, too. I like how everything turned into one big battle. Venom is really super tough in this one and seems a lot stronger and meaner than the Venom in the other book.

The end is very surprising because both Spider-Man and Venom are really tired from the fight and the Venom suit starts going after Spider-Man. On the last page it’s Spider-Man taken over the Venom suit and he’s wearing black now. It looked great.

The art was really good in this issue. Venom and Spider-Man were drawn really well. I like this one a little bit better than the other Spider-Man book because I think Venom looked more like the toy in this one so that was better.

My Rating: 9.5 out of 10

Glad you like Ultimate Spider-man. If your father doesn't already have them, you should persuade him to buy the trades of all the previous Ultimate Spider-man stories. They're really good.

Great review! I'm a big Ultimate Spider-man fan too, and this was a fun issue. I'm glad comics have some young fans out there!
