One year ago, teenage Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider. He soon learned a fateful lesson about great power and great responsibility and became the hero, SPIDER-MAN. Now, recruited by Nick Fury's superspy agency, S.H.I.E.L.D., and outfitted with sleek new tech and gadgets, Peter must find his place in this new world of Super Hero team dynamics while juggling his civilian life of high school drama. In other words, Peter Parker must become the ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN.
In the next installment of ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN, Loki gets revenge on SPIDER-MAN by turning him into a pig, but Spider-Ham teams up with Thor to turn the tables. Dr. Doom gets his hands on Captain America's shield, but can Spidey stop his evil plan for it? And Spider-Man is kidnapped by DOCTOR OCTOPUS, who injects a modified sample of SPIDER-MAN's DNA into Norman Osborn, leading to the creation of a dangerous new foe: The Green Goblin!
