A lot of Spidey on the list, I know!

This month wraps up the “End of the Earth” Spider-Man storyline, with Spidey (and others) trying to stop Dr. Octopus’ plan to take over the world. Looks like it’ll be less bank-breaking (confined to the main Spider-Man title) versus “Avengers vs. X-Men,” plus it involves Doc Ock (who I always liked as a Spider-Man villain).

Ultimate Spidey sees Miles Morales take on the “Ultimate” version of the Prowler, while “Marvel Universe Ultimate Spider-Man” sees Peter take on Mole Man and Electro. Yeah, that latter title is awkward; maybe they should’ve kept the “Marvel Adventures” name for the kids’ line.
