School Library Journal Review

Gr 9 Up-There's a new superhero crew in town and they're off to a rough start. Led by Jessica Drew, aka Spider-Woman (later Black Widow), the Ultimates include Spider-Man (Miles Morales, not Peter Parker), the romantic duo Cloak and Dagger, the volatile Bombshell, and the famous Kitty Pryde. This group of young superheroes must face a scientist developing a drug that endows the subject with horrifically destructive powers, the band of villains known as the Serpent Skulls, and the vigilante Scourge. What they lack in experience, they make up for in enthusiasm and loyalty. Refreshingly, while the girls are athletic (we see lots of short shorts and toned legs), they're not excessively busty. There's some violence and gore in these pages, so this graphic novel isn't for the faint of heart. VERDICT An exciting addition to the Marvel universe.-Heather M. Campbell, formerly at Philip S.
