Double Trouble Doctor Octopus has long been one of SpiderMan greatest villains and this volume sees his entrance into the Ultimates world. Horribly disfigured after his accident in Osborn lab. Otto Octavius insane Add into the mix Kraven the hunter who thinks of himself as the best hunter in the world and doesnt have a supper plus his new prey is SpiderMan. The writing is good, the characters are like there real. His approach to Mary Jane and Peter relationship is also defent aproch. This is the perfect Ultimate SpiderMan graphic to buy for someone who has seen SpiderMan 2 and wants to read a comic with Doc Ock in it. This book is also appropriate for all ages.

This book is more about growing up and focuses on emotions more than superhero stuff. However, I think this is needed in an epic story such as this. Venom makes a short appearance which might be a drag to some. Overall I found it to be a satisfying read.

Ultimate Spider-Man volume 3 or Double Trouble is by far the best one, in my opinion that I have read. I love Doctor Octopus, or just Doc Oct for short. The story is very simple, after an explosion at OsCorp Industries (THIS HAPPENED IN VOLUME 1) Doctor Oct wakes up a couple months later with four mechanical arms fused onto his body. He goes on a murderous rampage and who else to stop him but SPIDER-MAN! Trouble is that Peter a.k.a. Spider-Man knows that the Doctor knows he's Spider-Man, but his memory is all fuzzed up and not only is the Doc on a murder rampage, but Kraven the famous hunter is now going to hunt Spider-Man down and kill him. I absolutely love this title and it is chalk full of amazing artwork and story-telling. This is the one volume the Ultimate Spider-Man series has been waiting for.

This review is for Ultimate Spider-Man vol. 3 paperback edition: Double Trouble Doctor Octopus has long been one of Spider-Man's greatest villains, and this volume sees his entrance into the Ultimates world. Horribly disfigured after his accident in Osborn lab's in volume one, Otto Octavius insane and out for blood. Add into the mix, Kraven, who fancies himself the world's ultimate hunter, and his new prey is Spider-Man. Once again, Bendis bring his best game when scripting this book. The writing is wonderful, the characters very real and very human. His take on Gwen Stacy is very unlike mainstream Gwen Stacy but the result is a very likable character. His approach to Mary Jane and Peter's relationship is also very teenage and appealing. Bagley and Thibert's pencils are nice, and appropriate to the book, though the character's are a little wide eyed at times, and their take on Doc Ock's body didn't mesh with my personal image of the character. This is the perfect Ultimate Spider-Man graphic to buy for someone who has seen Spider-Man 2 and wants to read a comic with Doc Ock in it. This book is also appropriate for all ages and for comic collectors and newcomers alike. This volume reprints Ultimate Spider-Man #14-21. Highest recommendations!

This is the third installment of the Ultimate Spider-man story. This story is not the best of the series, but it's still a good read. This is the darkest of the series and lacks the same playful energy that the other books have. In spite of this, the story reveals the neccessary, yet painful aspects of the superhero lifestyle. In this story some of the more subtle information from the first two volumes is contradicted. One thing is Eddie Brock. In book two, he is revealed as a middle-aged news reporter at a press conference at the docks, but in this volume he is a college student and childhood friend of Peter Parker. Spidey's webs keep changing color, and the story lacks all of the twists that it needs to keep it exciting. Marvel probably did this to keep the book dark and serious so as not to reveal too much until the end. Luckily for us, the fans, they included an outline in the end book by book all of those twists and plot points that they left out of the stroy-line. The entire book is written like a movie where the only way to really enjoy the story is to picture it unfolding in your mind and filling-in the blanks between panels. The end with Nick Fury leaves some interesting possibilites for the future of the series. The venom saga is actually a VERY SHORT part of this book. It's more like the Scum-bag college guy saga with one short Spidey vs. Venom fight scene. It's more a story of people and their relationships than an action comic.In the end, this book would be more valuable as part of the Ultimate Spider-man collection coming later this year containg all three of the hardcover volumes in one package for a decent price. Any die-hard fans willing to read the outline after reading the book and try to picture those points as part of the story will greatly enjoy this book.

I love this book so much it's down right scary! I am really impressed with the whole Ultimate Spider-Man idea and where it's going. Ultimate Doctor Octopus is even more interesting than he was in the Amazing Spider-Man timeline. Unlike the Ultimate Green Goblin who, although still entertaining, is somehow lacking the presence of the original, Doc Ock now seems to have more menacing and has more purpose than he did in the original. Another thing I liked about this book is the introduction of the new and improved Gwen Stacy. Many new readers may not know her seeing that she died decades before they started reading Spider-Man so I'm happy they included her in the story. The books had a few flaws like Ultimate Kraven, which I hope becomes more like the original Kraven in 'Kraven's Last Hunt,' and the use of Justin Hammer, who had absolutely nothing to do in the Spider-Man universe, instead of another evil and selfish businessman like Adrian Toomes (aka the Vulture) or Mendell Stromm. Fortunately, Doc Ock and Spidey's biting humor(especially when he webs a phone under the excitement of webbing two guards or when he tells a false origin to a gullible reporter) more than makes up for the little mistakes that's in this book. If you love Spider-Man, read this book! Its good!!!

Very good storyline with awesome graphics of Doc Ock! I'm dying to get this in hardcover. Anyone know if Marvel is planning on continuing to publish them in hardcover as well?

Stopped reading Spidey Comix about 15 years ago. Thanks to Brian Michael and his team I'am back into it. That old gang's back, Peter, MJ, Gwen, Flash, Doc Ock, Kraven the Hunter etc, however, freshened-up and placed in an up-to-date environment. And Spidey's punchlines during the action bits are as crunchy as ever. Really looking forward to Vol 4.

Well, looks like Brian Michael Bendis has done it again with another smashing Ultimate Spider Man book. The Ultimate version of Doc Ock is cool, his metal arms being able to form stuff like guns makes him more intresting and more dangerous than in the original Spider Man comics. The introduction of Gwen Stacy was a nice touch, since it'll make things between her, Peter, and Mary Jane very intresting. Introducing Kraven The Hunter as some cheesy crocodile hunter, though(mind if I say 'Crikey!'?), was a little pathetic, so I'll dock it one star. And was it just me, or did Eddie Brock make an appearence here? Hmmmm. Looks like Ultimate Venom may be around the corner soon.

This version of Spider-Man was truely outstanding, and absolutly breath-taking. In fact the whole series was wonderful. I srtongly recommend it for anyone who likes the Marvel masterpieces. All of them included all the of the important ingredients to make a great book: suspense, action, and even romance.... Each book will make wanna know more.
