What is Ultimate Spider-Man about?

“THE NEW ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN FOR A NEW ULTIMATE UNIVERSE! Visionary writer Jonathan Hickman (HOUSE OF X/POWERS OF X) and acclaimed artist Marco Checchetto (DAREDEVIL) bring you a bold new take on Spider-Man, with this, the debut title of the new line of Ultimate Comics!” the solicitation for Ultimate Spider-Man #1 reads. “After the events of ULTIMATE INVASION, the world needs a hero … who will rise up to take on that responsibility? Prepare to be entangled in a web of mystery and excitement as the all-new ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN comic redefines the wall-crawler for the 21st Century!”

“When we decided that we were going to do a book about an older Peter Parker becoming Spider-Man, we really wanted to lean into him starting his superhero life from a very different place than what’s traditionally expected,” Hickman said. “Peter and MJ being married is one of many decisions we made that underline this being quite a ‘different’ kind of Spider-Man story.”

Ultimate Spider-Man #1 is written by Hickman, illustrated by Checchetto, colored by Matthew Wilson, and lettered by VC’s Cory Petit. Checchetto provides the cover art, while variants come from David Marquez, Mateus Manhanini, Nic Klein, Tony Daniel, Checchetto, and Campbell.

Ultimate Spider-Man #1 releases on January 10, 2024, from Marvel Comics. A new Ultimate Spider-Man trailer will debut later this week.
