In an overcrowded comic book marketplace, certain stories sometimes get lost in the shuffle. Still others are so popular they disappear from stores entirely. In either case, Marvel’s quick reprints of such stories extend both their life and their readership, ensuring that many fans who didn’t get to read them initially will have a second chance. Here, two Ultimate Universe heroes who seldom interact in the Marvel Universe are spotlighted. When a black ops team puts out a hit on Wolverine and very nearly fulfills it, the half–dead mutant finds his way to Peter Parker’s doorstep. Soon there are killers in Spider-Man’s neighborhood and the heroes have to call on whatever assistance they can find, including redheads Mary Jane Watson and the Black Widow.

Brian Michael Bendis and David Finch ensure that writing, characterization, and art are top–notch in this fast-paced title, filled with shocks galore.
