Cataclysm: Ultimate Spider-Man #1 Review

Cataclysm: Ultimate Spider-Man #1

Written by: Brian Michael Bendis
Art by: Dave Marquez

Cataclysm is approaching Mile’s world and nothing good can come of it. Cataclysm: Ultimates has shown us how the rest of the world will react to the arrival of Galactus, though here we take a step back and see what leads Spider-Man, Cloak and Dagger into this fight as well.

Here we see  what comes out of this team up between Spider Woman, Spider-Man, Cloak, Dagger, and Bombshell. All going back to their normal lives and dealing with what effect this has had on them. Off the bat having Spider Woman as the anchor for this supposed investigation of Roxxon is great if not only for the fact that their association with her makes them legitimate heroes to an extent. This experience has really changed them all for the better and you can see that Bendis is really trying to bring out the best in all of them now that they have the opportunity to do more.

Overall, Cataclysm: Ultimate Spider-Man #1 should be what puts these heroes to the test when standing against what very well may be their end. Between Cloak, Dagger, and Bombshell, they really got all the characterization they could have needed in this issue. It’s all about progression for those like themselves and all for this moment which we hope isn’t their last. The style of Dave Marquez again is very welcomed. His attention to details between the characters and the environment is on point. Then aside from that the coloring is clean with a lot of variation for depth.

Score: 8.3/10
