Ultimate Spider-Man #3

My favorite moments of Ultimate Spider-Man #3 center around the interactions between Peter Parker and his daughter May who is the only one who knows her father's secret. We get the pair working to keep the secret from Mary Jane and then May helping her father find the perfect look for this universe's Spider-Man. We also get a fun little character beat with Peter discussing Spider-Man with Ben and Jonah, sticking up for the city's new hero.

For an issue more notable for character interactions, we do still get some action when Spider-Man breaks up the fight between the Green Goblin and Bullseye. The short sequence works well and its primary purpose is to set up another character interaction after the fight between Harry and Peter setting up a different version of the pair's friendship than we've seen explored in comics. For the first time in a long time, here's a Spider-Man comic I'm excited to read every month.
