CBR Review: Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #7

I recently reviewed Ultimate Comics Spider-Man #7 and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "The Ultimate Spider-Man status quo is very different in the post-Ultimatum world with Aunt May taking in both Iceman and the Human Torch in addition to Gwen Stacey. In the preview pages, Bendis recaps that by cleverly putting it into a conversation between Peter and Mary Jane while they’re on break at their mall food court jobs. Peter’s wonderment at how much May is loving the new arrangement no doubt mirrors that of readers, as Bendis takes almost an opposite approach to the character that was taken in the regular Spider-Man books. However, when we see May with the kids later, it reads smoothly and naturally, although truncated by the Rick Jones plot."
