* HilariousInHindsight: The ''Marvel Database'' (that is, [[TheWikiRule the Marvel wiki]]) is usually pretty damn reliable, so you can take the fact that the ComicBook/UltimateMarvel Universe and its version from [[VideoGame/UltimateSpiderMan the videogame]] aren't the same universe as borderline WordOfGod (which got confirmed anyway, as the VideoGame/UltimateSpiderMan videogame fell into CanonDiscontinuity). Flash-forward to the latest events and to Peter's death. Once you think about it, you realise that thanks to the videogame version of the VideoGame/UltimateSpiderMan we still have an alive-and-well Ultimate Peter Parker.

* BetterThanCanon: ''ComicBook/TheCloneSaga'' is usually reviled as a DorkAge and one of the lowest points of the Spider-Man franchise. On the other hand, the Ultimate Clone Saga was welcomed as one of the best stories of Ultimate Spider-Man, and introduced Jessica Drew, who became a EnsembleDarkhorse.

Added DiffLines:

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: In the first arc, when Peter first changes into Spider-Man for a superhero fight, he hides among the bushes and thinks "this can't be how Captain America does it!". The ComicBook/UltimateMarvel universe was still in its early stages, and ComicBook/CaptainAmerica had not been acknowledged yet. He was first used in ''ComicBook/TheUltimates'': he was a war hero from World War II, the first superhuman ever, who fell to the ocean and was presumed dead after stopping a nazi rocket. He was retrieved in the present day of that miniseries, but this story was not there yet. So, for all that Peter knows at that point, Captain America had only been a superhero during WWII, and probably did not even had to bother about concealing a secret identity.

* DoNotDoThisCoolThing: They do not allow you to fight in MMA contests because you are a minor? Jump in there and fight anyway! Or better not, things will not end well...

* ReplacementScrappy: Miles Morales, for many fans of Ultimate Peter. Some characters InUniverse (especially friends of Peter) see him as this.



* TakeThatScrappy: The first time Miles comes across any of Peter's TrueCompanions in costume, he's promptly kicked in the head and asked "Who the PrecisionFStrike do you think you are?". Bonus points for it coming from Spider-Woman, or if you prefer [[spoiler:Peter's [[GenderFlip gender flipped]] clone]].

** If we consider everything that happened later, perhaps the Parkers ''should'' have sued the pants off Oscorp for the spider incident of the first issue.

** Likewise, the overall emphasis on SHIELD as the GovernmentAgencyOfFiction with Nick Fury being a kind of TricksterMentor is DramaticallyMissingThePoint of the very essence of what made Spider-Man unique, i.e. he was a teenage hero who was not a sidekick or underling to major heroes, but his own man who solved problems entirely on his own.

Added DiffLines:

* OlderThanTheyThink: This was actually the second attempt by Marvel to reboot Spider-Man after the DorkAge of the clone saga. The first one was ''ComicBook/SpiderManChapterOne'', but it was poorly received and was nowhere near the success of Ultimate Spider-Man.

* CreatorsPet: Ultimate Kingpin is this from a villain perspective since Creator/BrianMichaelBendis elevated him to second most prominent villain after Goblin, had him win unlikely victories (and a superpowered Peter Parker couldn't land a punch on him which 616!Marvel called BS on in an iconic moment in ComicBook/JMSSpiderMan's ''Back in Black'' arc). Bendis is a huge fan of ''ComicBook/{{Daredevil}}'' fan (and later wrote Daredevil) and his ridiculously convoluted manner in which Kingpin escapes justice despite being caught on tape strangling a man beggars disbelief in terms of a DiabolusExMachina.

* CreatorsPet:
** ComicBook/KittyPryde became Peter Parker's girlfriend in and, after they broke up, remained a part of the cast and was fit into as many plotlines as possible. Creator/BrianMichaelBendis has gone on the record to state that [[AuthorAppeal he's always liked Kitty Pryde from back when he was a kid]] and that he enjoys using her... combine that with a statement he made about Peter "being him" and the conclusion to come to is pretty easy. Some don't mind the attention paid to her... but others do.
