Ultimate Spider-Man 67

Spider-Man and Wolverine switch bodies in Ultimate Spider-Man 66 and 67. Now when I picked up this comics, I was not aware this series existed. But once I read the story, I wad glad I found it. All the characters are teenagers, like when Spider-man first surfaced back in the 60s.

Ultimate Spider-Man 66 and 67 is a nod toward the whole body-swap genre. Jean Grey, the chick from X-men with the brain powers, decides it would be funny to switch the minds of Wolverine and Spider-Man. Now Spider-Man, aka Peter Parker, is a teenager in this story, and Wolverine, also known as Logan, is an Adult. As you can imagine, this makes things interesting, to say the least.

What makes this a story worth reading is the high potential for humor. Take Peter’s girlfriend for example, Mary Jane. He sees Peter, who actually has the mind of Logan, and gives him a kiss. All of a sudden, he has an evil look on his face, like he is going to try and get a slice of that fine pie (and he does try, in fact). On the flip side, Peter’s mind is stuck in Logan’s body, and discovers that he can’t run as fast as he used to, and gets himself humiliated by the po-po. This story is hilarious and it’s sweet, as it reminds you of the innocence of being a teenager. Give Ultimate Spider-man 66 and 67 a read if you come across them.
