Things are looking better for the Ultimate universe’s MVP Miles Morales. We see his father back in his life after the revelation that he was an old school undercover agent for S.H.I.E.L.D. as told in his urban noir tale. Jefferson Davis is having to talk with the principal to explain the reason for him leaving and assuring that Miles is going to be back in school after this personal day that Jefferson told him to take.
As Miles recounts the good that brought his father back into his life, he is deciding upon taking care of the revealing of his identity that pushed Kate Bishop away. However, a fight between Sabertooth and Electro needs his attention… or does it? Miles decides to let these guys fight it out first and then proceed to take out the winner. It’s a genius plan. What could go wrong?
Well a telephone being knocked over onto a school bus (Miles: Of course it’s a school bus. It’s always a school bus.) is one thing. Miles is forced into the battle but gets help from Cloak and Dagger. The duo also give some advice on what to do with the Miles’ whole “Girlfriend knowing your secret identity then freaking out”, situation he is facing. The best part of this interaction is Dagger’s shade on Kate Bishop. Dagger is noooooooot feeling Kate and it’s hilarious. Miles decides to confront the situation head on but as we know and he finds out, things aren’t in his favor at the Bishop household.
Bendis gives us a quick issue that serves more so as a bridge into the next arc. We know via March solicitation that Doom appears in the next issue which leaves begs the question about how Mile’s is ordeal with Kate’s Hydra parents is going to play out cause our boy is in a very bad way at the end of this issue.
