I feel very similarly to how Stu feels about Ultimate Spider-man lately, but I'm liking the stories okay. The Ultimate Venom stuff always felt a bit too Vanilla to me. I'm a fan of the outerspace symbiote. The story's pacing also hurt that for me a little, but I'm still liking what I'm reading.
I'm still warming up to the design revamps from many moons ago. The Movie look is nice, but Ultimate Spider-man was really its own, ya know? That's what it was, and you just had to accept it. Anyway, Peter getting sucked into the symbiote was very cool and in character for the suit (wanting him), Peter (not wanting it), and Eddie hating Peter for it.
Granted I still feel that ever since Spider-man 3 I keep getting Venom throw in into pretty much every panel of every comic ever. lol.
The bout with The Ultimates was worth the story arch, I'd say.
