Ultimate Spin began in 2014 looking at a different strand of Spider-Man’s web, namely the one belonging to Miles Morales – the young man who’d inherited the mantle of great power and responsibility following the death of Peter Parker in Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man series.
Whether you’ve been following Miles since he was introduced in 2011 or if you’ve been on the fence about giving him a chance, Ultimate Spin is your podcast companion to Miles’ adventures as Spider-Man. Marvel relaunched the series as Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spider-Man in 2014, along with a boldly different (and much darker) title about his team, entitled All-New Ultimates.
When All-New Ultimates wrapped up in early 2015, we revised our show to look at another alternate Spider-character that captured our interest: Gwen Stacy of Earth-65, aka Spider-Gwen! Gwen’s series is fun, unpredictable (!), and doing really thought-provoking and challenging things with the classic themes of great power and great responsibility, powered by incredible art and intense colors.
Ultimate Spin features an international group of Spider-Man fans reviewing and discussing the stories in these titles, as well as chatting about the history of the Ultimate Spider-Man series and whatever crossover appearances may happen along the way.
