Ultimate Spider-Man, Vol. 12: Superstars - Brian Michael Bendis, Mark Bagley Relatively underwhelming. There are six issues in this volume. Each and every one focuses on a guest character. What is this, Ultimate Spider-Man Team Up? I would not have read that book voluntarily. The Wolverine and Doctor Strange issues just weren't that great. Bendis thought highly enough of the Wolverine body switching storyline that he put in a (tongue in cheek, I know) apology in the middle of the story. The story with Johnny Storm was much, much better, because Johnny himself was a much more interesting character. I also appreciated the friendly reminder of why I don't read the Ultimates that was included in the Doctor Strange story: the characters themselves are all such jackasses. This isn't the first time that I've seen Bendis take a potshot at them. I wonder if he personally isn't a fan?
