‘Ultimate Spider-Man’ #5 to kick-off ‘The Rise of Doctor Octopus’

On May 29, one of Spidey’s most terrifying foes makes his Ultimate Universe debut!

Press Release

Marvel Comics has revealed who the big bad is in Ultimate Spider-Man–after the Kingpin throwdown of issue #6–and it’s none other than Doctor Octopus. We know this from an interior page from Ultimate Spider-Man #5 as well as teaser text. Issue #5 will feature art by David Messina with writing by Jonathan Hickman.

This news comes just days after Ultimate Spider-Man #4 dropped some doozy bits of Spider-Man canon into the new universe. Check out the cover of Ultimate Spider-Man #5 here.
