Spider-Man and Wolverine switch bodies in Ultimate Spider-Man 66 and 67. Now when I picked up these 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.
Peter Parker is a teenager, and he has to deal with all the problems that come with being a teenager. He has to deal with school, girls, and his Aunt May. He also has to deal with the fact that he is Spider-Man. Wolverine on the other hand is an adult, and he has to deal with all the problems that come with being an adult. He has to deal with his job as a teacher at Peter’s school, and he also has to deal with the fact that he is Spider-Man.
The story was written by Brian Michael Bendis, who I have never heard of before this story. But after reading this story I will be looking for more of his work in the future. The art was done by Mark Bagley who I have heard of before but never read any of his work before this story either. But after reading this story I will be looking for more of his work in the future as well.
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.
