Marvel Milestones: Ultimate Spider-Man, Ultimate X-Men, Microman & Mantor

Certain comics become scarce, particularly those pesky half-issues. This one-shot collects the rare “1/2” issues of Ultimate Spider-Man and Ultimate X-Men, the former featuring The Daily Bugle’s editorial process—should they run a story that unfairly makes Spider-Man look bad?—and the latter an X-Men tale featuring Quicksilver and the Scarlet Witch. The Spider-Man issue also introduced Daniel Rand, Iron Fist, to the Ultimate Universe.

Inexplicably, a pair of short stories from the 1940s, originally presented in Human Torch #2, are also included, in case fans want to read about Microman and Mantor. Brian Michael Bendis, Mark Bagley, Geoff Johns, and Aaron Lopresti handle the main features.
