Welcome to our monthly chat featuring the master of Marvel myth and mirth—Stan Lee!
Stan Lee: Hi, heroes!
Stan Lee: Nope! I'm your obedient servant—at your beck and call—so whap me with some questions! If I don't know the answers I'll fake 'em, as usual!
Stan Lee: Actually, I have dozens of favorites. Everything by Mark Twain, Conan Doyle and H. G. Wells.
Stan Lee: There isn't that much of a decline in comics! Mostly, the problem is there aren't enough stores to sell 'em.
Stan Lee: Mostly people reading comics approach me, and it's always a kick to talk to them. Hey, call me Stan, OK?
Stan Lee: Greed! And hunger! Basically, I really love to write. I can't believe I get paid to do what I enjoy so much
Stan Lee: My biggest fan is someone six-feet-six! I go to the Marvel Mania restaurant at least once a week—love it!
Stan Lee: Almost all of 'em! But especially the Silver Surfer, and often Thor.
Stan Lee: I'm kinda partial to Spidey, and Doc Doom is my all-time favorite baddie.
Stan Lee: It was great. Funny thing is, no one ever knew he'd catch on so big.
Stan Lee: Are we out of questions?
Stan Lee: Sales are picking up. The mags are looking better than ever. I'm totally optimistic about comics—especially Marvel's!
Stan Lee: Hey, it's all a big secret. Mackie and Bob Harras would kill me if I told!
Stan Lee: Aw, I've got enough super power now. Couldn't handle any more!
Stan Lee: One character I never knew what to do with: Diablo. I liked his name, and that was it. My one big failure!
Stan Lee: Just send 'em to Marvel, care of the Submissions Editor. Good luck!
Stan Lee: Ab-so-lute-ly! Who says I can't be brief?!!!
Stan Lee: Anything's possible—especially at mixed-up Marvel.
Stan Lee: Sure—but not too many at a time.
Stan Lee: Thanx, O Great Judge of Literature and Guest Spots!
Stan Lee: I was about 17. I think it was called "Hurricane"—a guy who ran fast or something—or maybe it was "The Destroyer." I never knew anyone would ask years later, so I didn't pay attention!
Stan Lee: The power to sell twice as many copies of each issue! Gotcha!
Stan Lee: That's a tough one. Probably when the sales figures of the Fantastic Four came in and we saw we had a monster hit.
Stan Lee: Answering all these questions on the Web. And in my spare time, working on movie, TV, and animation projects.
Stan Lee: The next one will be "Blade"—it'll be out real soon—starring Wes Snipes. And it's really great!
Stan Lee: Nah, I didn't have a clue. It's still hard for me to believe, but, y'know something—I love it!
Stan Lee: Terrific!!! It opens next year. Y'all come, hear?
Stan Lee: I like him with the adamantium. But hey, what do I know?
Stan Lee: My brother, Larry Lieber, who used to write and draw "The Rawhide Kid" and now pencils the daily Spidey strip in the newspapers.
Stan Lee: I sure hope so.
Stan Lee: Loved it. Can't wait for the new ones.
Stan Lee: I wish he'd ask me. He was a great guy, a great director—and hey, he made me a star!!!
Stan Lee: As a kid I was into Tarzan and any Errol Flynn movie, like "Captain Blood." I was lucky to get into comics where I could keep doing wild stuff.
Stan Lee: They're merely sensational. Miss 'em at your own risk! (Typical Stan Lee shameless plug!)
Stan Lee: Simple: They're just plain fun. They're enjoyable and exciting. What more couldja want?
Stan Lee: If I ever get the time, I'd love to. It's the most fun ya can have without working!
Stan Lee: Look, I'm prejudiced. But I like 'em both. They're different from each other, but they both have their great features.
Stan Lee: The L.A. Dodgers. But I liked 'em better years ago when they were "doze bums," the Brooklyn Dodgers!
Stan Lee: I'm sorry to say I didn't create him; Joe Simon and Jack Kirby did. But I wrote some of his early stories from the time I was 17 on.
Stan Lee: Okay.
Stan Lee: Everything I've ever seen, read, or heard. As with every writer, we all write from our experiences. So keep your eyes open, heroes—observe everything, but not too much—I don't need lots more competition!
Stan Lee: My comment is I think you're all the greatest! My question is—damnit, can't think of any! I guess that means I know everything! EXCELSIOR!
Stan Lee: Enjoyed it, gang!

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

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.Was this review helpful?

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!Was this review helpful?

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!!!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

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.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
