In Deniz Camp and Juan Frigeri’s ULTIMATES #1, witness the reimagining of one of Marvel’s greatest and most influential super hero teams! This key chapter of the overarching narrative that began in Jonathan Hickman and Stefano Caselli’s ULTIMATE UNIVERSE #1 sees an all-new Ultimates team assemble.

Six months ago, Tony Stark sent Peter Parker a radioactive spider to set him back on the course to become Spider-Man. Since then, Iron Lad (Stark), Captain America, Doom, Thor and Sif have begun to do the same for other lost heroes, building a network of super-powered heroes hungry for change… Now they must band together to destroy the Maker’s Council and restore freedom and free will to a world ruled from the shadows!

Jonathan Hickman and Marco Checchetto present the shocking conclusion to their opening arc in ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #6. Spider-Man must finally confront the head honcho himself: Wilson Fisk, the Kingpin! Kingpin, as owner and operator of the Daily Bugle, has been working with the Maker’s Council to control the spread of information in their favor… Which means he’s the first domino that must be toppled to end their regime! PLUS: Mary Jane holds her own. ’Nuff said!

Throughout ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN, Checchetto delivers masterful new approaches to iconic villains, and fans can check out his original design sheet for Ultimate Bullseye, who will make his mark in the series starting in this month’s issue #3!
