ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #150 (January, 2011)
By Brian Michael Bendis & a bunch of other folks

APPEARANCES:
Spider-Man (also in fb), Ringer, Carol Danvers, Iron Man (also in fb), Whiplash (in fb), Captain America (also in fb), Thor (also in fb), Gwen Stacy (in fb), Xandu (in fb), Mangog (in fb), Human Torch, Iceman, May Parker

FLASHBACKS:
Spider-Man and Iron Man fight Whiplash (1). Spider-Man and Captain America fight AIM agents (2). Peter and Gwen go to a Norse exhibit at the museum and Spider-Man and Thor end up fighting Xandu and Mangog (3).
SYNOPSIS:
Spider-Man stops the Ringer from robbing some place, but causes all kinds of property damage in the process. Carol Danvers gathers the Ultimates and asks them what they think of Spider-Man. Carol Danvers approaches Aunt May, and they agree that Spider-Man should be trained by the Ultimates.

NOTE:
The Iron Man and Captain America flashbacks are described as “recent.” The Thor flashback features Thor (alive on Earth) and Peter with Gwen at the museum. Thor “died” in Ultimatum, and didn’t return until Ultimate New Ultimates. ULTNULTS takes place between ULTSM2 15 (where Gwen moves out) and this issue (Gwen doesn’t return until next issue). So, the Thor flashback takes place before Ultimatum.

ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #151 (February, 2011)
By Brian Michael Bendis & Sara Pichelli

APPEARANCES:
Black Cat (in fb), Spider-Man, Human Torch, Iceman, Bombshell II, Mysterio (in fb), May Parker, Gwen Stacy, Iron Man

FLASHBACKS:
Black Cat watches (new) Mysterio kill Kingpin (repeats ULTSM2 1). Later, Black Cat goes to rob a place and meets Mysterio. He wants to hire her, but she doesn’t want to work for him (new).
SYNOPSIS:
At school, Iceman asks Bombshell II out on a date. Meanwhile, Gwen returns to the Parker house. While Gwen and May catch up, Iron Man arrives to start training Spider-Man.

ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #152 (March, 2011)
By Brian Michael Bendis, Sara Pichelli & David Lafuente

APPEARANCES:
Spider-Man (also in fb), Black Cat (in fb), Mysterio (in fb), Iron Man, May Parker, Gwen Stacy, Betty Brant (in fb), J. Jonah Jameson (bts in fb), Human Torch, Iceman

FLASHBACKS:
Two weeks ago, Black Cat watches Spider-Man beat up Mysterio. Later, Betty Brant tries to find out what’s going on at Mysterio’s destroyed place but the police won’t let her. Black Cat sneaks inside and finds the Zodiac Key. Mysterio approaches her but she uses the Key to escape.
SYNOPSIS:
Aunt May tells Iron Man to leave because he’s blowing Spider-Man’s secret identity. Peter returns home and catches up with Gwen while May throws a fit at SHIELD. Gwen breaks up with Peter, but says she still wants to be friends. Iron Man calls and asks Spider-Man to meet him at Stark headquarters. Peter changes his clothes and leaves.

ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #153 (April, 2011)
By Brian Michael Bendis, Sara Pichelli, David Lafuente, Lan Medina & Ed Tadeo

APPEARANCES:
Kingpin (in fb), Spider-Man, Iron Man, Black Cat (Felicia), Mysterio

FLASHBACK:
Years ago, Kingpin finds the Zodiac Key but quickly realizes it’s too much power for any person to have.
SYNOPSIS:
Iron Man shows Spider-Man his lab. Meanwhile, Mysterio tells Black Cat about the Zodiac Key. She uses it to get rid of him, but accidentally kills everyone within the city block they’re in. Iron Man registers the energy signature so he and Spider-Man go to check it out. When they arrive Mysterio has already convinced Black Cat to hand the Key over.

ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #154 (April, 2011)
By Brian Michael Bendis, Sara Pichelli, David Lafuete & Elena Casagrande

APPEARANCES:
Gwen Stacy, Mary Jane Watson, Spider-Man, Iron Man, Mysterio, Black Cat

SYNOPSIS:
Mary Jane learns that Gwen is back. Meanwhile, Spider-Man beats up Mysterio and Iron Man learns that Mysterio is actually a robot controlled by someone else from afar. Iron Man takes the Zodiac Key for safe keeping and leaves. Spider-Man goes to Mary Jane’s house and tells her he had a bad night so she invites him inside.

ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #155 (May, 2011)
By Brian Michael Bendis & Chris Samnee

APPEARANCES:
Spider-Man, J. Jonah Jameson, Ben Urich, Shroud, May Parker, Mary Jane Watson, Gwen Stacy, Iceman, Human Torch, Invisible Woman, Thing, Iron Man (bts)

SYNOPSIS:
Peter gets fired from his fast food job, but gets re-hired at the Daily Bugle. On his way home he runs into the Shroud, and convinces her to come home with him to let her friends know she’s OK. She mentions that Kong moved to Wisconsin. When they get home, his family and friends surprise him with a birthday party. Pete rand Mary Jane start dating again.

NOTE:
Thing appears here in his human form, so we’re now past Ultimate Enemy/Mystery/Doom. That has to happen after Gwen returns to the Parker home (so after ULTSM 151, which continues through ULTSM 154), so the only open spot for that story to go is between ULTSM 154-155. Apparently, the Parker house was rebuilt pretty quickly (it was completely destroyed in Ultimate Enemy and it’s just fine here).

ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #156 (May, 2011)
By Brian Michael Bendis & Mark Bagley

APPEARANCES:
Carol Danvers, Green Goblin, Spider-Man, Mary Jane Watson, Captain America, Dr. Leonard Samson, Electro, Kraven the Hunter, Sandman, Dr. Octopus, Vulture, Ben Urich, J. Jonah Jameson (bts)

SYNOPSIS:
SHIELD verifies that Norman Osborn no longer has super powers. Elsewhere, Peter and Mary Jane go on a date until Captain America interrupts them. Green Goblin power up and breaks out of prison, and frees the rest of the Sinister Six. Cap starts giving Spider-Man a speech about how everyone dies eventually, but Carol Danvers calls and interrupts to tell Cap that Fury’s Avengers have gone crazy. Cap leaves and tells Spider-Man to stay out of it. Ben Urich gets footage of the Green Goblin, proving he’s still alive (apparently, the world thought he was dead). Spider-Man follows Cap, but Mary Jane calls him and tells him that Green Goblin is alive and free.

NOTE:
Nick Fury and his Avengers are not BTS here, because we see what they’re doing over in ULTAVNULTS 3.

ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #157 (June, 2011)
By Brian Michael Bendis & Mark Bagley

APPEARANCES:
Spider-Man, Green Goblin, Electro, Kraven the Hunter, Sandman, Dr. Octopus, Vulture, May Parker, Gwen Stacy, Mary Jane Watson, Punisher, Captain America, Nick Fury

SYNOPSIS:
The Sinister Six try to talk Green Goblin out of attacking Spider-Man and just start new lives. Green Goblin attacks Dr. Octopus in a rage. Meanwhile, Spider-Man tells Aunt May and Gwen Stacy to get out of town because the Sinister Six are out of prison (and alive). Green Goblin kills Dr. Octopus. Spider-Man returns to the Brooklyn Bridge where Punisher prepares to shoot Captain America to save Nick Fury. Spider-Man swings by and takes the bullet meant for Cap’s knee.

NOTE:
This issue overlaps with ULTAVNUTS 3 and mirrors some scenes. Both were published at the same time.

ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #158 (July, 2011)
By Brian Michael Bendis & Mark Bagley

APPEARANCES:
Green Goblin, Electro, Kraven the Hunter, Sandman, Vulture, Tinkerer, Spider-Man, Human Torch, Iceman

SYNOPSIS:
The Sinister Six go to the Tinkerer to get some new equipment. Meanwhile, Spider-Man webs up his injuries and leaves the destroyed Brooklyn Bridge. Human Torch and Iceman return to the Parker home to find it empty. The Sinister Six attack and defeat the two heroes. Spider-Man arrives, defeats Vulture and prepares to fight the rest of the Sinister Six.

SYNOPSIS:
Spider-Man battles the Sinister Six, but all his neighbors see him without his mask and figure out that Peter Parker is Spider-Man. A neighbor calls Aunt May and tells her that the Sinister Six are killing Spider-Man. She turns the car around and when she arrives, she shoots and apparently kills Electro. With everyone defeated Spider-Man collapses, but the Green Goblin wakes up and prepares to attack Spider-Man and his aunt.

ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #160 (August, 2011)
By Brian Michael Bendis & Mark Bagley

Spider-Man fights Green Goblin and wakes up the Human Torch, but the Goblin easily defeats the Torch. Green Goblin prepares to kill Spider-Man but Mary Jane runs the Green Goblin over with a van. Spider-Man beats the tar out of the Goblin with the van, then the van explodes. Spider-Man collapses and dies surrounded by his friends and family.
