!!Trivia tropes for the [[ComicBook/UltimateSpiderMan comics]]:

* CrackIsCheaper: A direct market copy of the first issue is unusually pricey, currently valued at nearly $200. That's ''much'' cheaper than, say, ''ComicBook/ActionComics'' #1 or ''ComicBook/DetectiveComics'' #27 (which will cost you hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not ''millions''), but those comics are many decades old, whereas ''USM'' #1 is only from 2000.
* FandomNod: In ''Ultimate Comics Spider-Man'', after much fan complaint over the way Lafuente drew Peter's hair, Bendis decided to write up a scene with Mary Jane, Kitty, and Gwen forcing Peter to get a haircut, [[LampshadeHanging using several arguments fans used to bash his hairstyle.]]
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: ''WesternAnimation/SpiderManTheNewAnimatedSeries'' was originally going to be an adaptation of this comic series. Instead, it was changed into being a sort of follow-up to [[Film/SpiderMan1 the first live-action film]].
** ''Spider-Men'', the first crossover between ComicBook/UltimateMarvel and the [[Franchise/MarvelUniverse 616 Universe]], actually wasn't [[http://goodcomics.comicbookresources.com/2015/05/15/comic-book-legends-revealed-523/ conceptualized as a crossover at first.]] The real purpose was actually meant to introduce the ''official'' 616!Miles Morales, who would go on to become a supporting character in Peter's title.
** Peter Parker was also meant to be one of the many deaths in ComicBook/{{Ultimatum}}. Bendis decided at the last second that he didn't want the character to die yet because he wanted to tell more stories with him. It was during the writing of of the relaunched book, Ultimate Comics Spider-Man, that Bendis would conceptualize Peter's LegacyHero, ComicBook/MilesMorales.
* WordOfGod: After being asked if the comics would show what happened to [the resurrected] Peter Parker and his happy ending with Mary Jane, an editor stated that Ultimate Peter has been dead and gone for a long time, raising questions of {{Retcon}} and CanonDiscontinuity.

!!Trivia tropes for the [[VideoGame/UltimateSpiderMan video game]]:

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: There were apparently plans to give cameos to ComicBook/TheUltimates, as revealed in the game's storyboards.
** Nick Fury shows up, at the very least.
