Funny: Ultimate Spider-Man

Ultimate Spider-Man, the comic books

  • During the Venom arc, Peter saves a pop-star from a group of kidnappers... than webs her mouth shut because she won't stop screaming and he's got a headache.
  • At one point, Gwen decides to cheer Peter up by dragging him to a house party. Inevitably, the cops show up and everybody starts to run. After vaulting up a fence, she turns and offers a hand to Peter, with some encouragement about how he can climb it. What makes it is the look he gives her in return is a mix of dry amusement and annoyance.
  • Jean Grey thanks Spidey for not thinking of her naked. She just had to say it and make him picture it.
    • Also an Overly Long Gag: it carries on for another several panels after that.
    • The look on Jean's face throughout it all is what makes it. She goes from saddened when he does it, to angered, to bemused, to exasperated, to amazement at how long he keeps going.
  • During Ultimatum, when Peter and the Hulk find Nightmare in the wreckage of Doctor Strange's house.
    Peter: (whispered) Hulk? Smash that.
    Hulk: (also whispering) Don't tell Hulk what to do.
    Peter: The one time I need you to do something, and you give me lip?
  • Peter's girlfriend and exes conspire to give him a haircut. Oh, and Johnny makes out with Peter's genderswapped clone!
    • It's the following entire page of freaked-out, disgusted mental screaming that makes the second one.
  • Spider-Man, having just taken out Electro and the Enforcers, is confronted by Kingpin. When asked why he is going after Kingpin, Spider-Man responds that this is an important question, and he wrote down his answer because he wants to get it right. Spidey pulls out and unfolds a sheet of paper... and proceeds to read off a list of "you are so fat" jokes that send Kingpin into a rage.
  • Kingpin shows his Genre Savvy after Spidey pulls one too many Super Window Jumps into his office, having installed very un-Soft Glass.
  • Really, a lot of his interactions with the Kingpin, which often consist of Parker Trolling the hell out of him. Like on one occasion he meets him at a restaurant, exchanges some banter and then swings off... at which point Kingpin realizes that Spidey webbed his feet to the floor while they were talking.
    • And it isn't the first time he's pulled that. Early in the series, Spidey has a chance to confront J. Jonah Jameson, who's been smearing him in the Daily Bugle, on the street. Spidey pulls in close and JJ thinks he's about to get pummeled before Spidey swings away going "Love the paper! It's HILARIOUS!" JJ sighs a bit of relief and turns to walk back inside only to pull a Face Fault onto the concrete because Spidey quietly webbed his feet to the ground. Apparently Spidey's M.O. against people that irk him is to web their feet to the floor.
  • Black Cat throwing up on Spider-Man after realizing that he's way younger than her.
  • When Spider-Man pulls off not one but two Dynamic Entries in the space of a single fight scene:
    Spider-Man: Hey!! Did I leave my purse??
  • After the X-Men take a kid named Geldoff and Spider-Man to the X-Mansion, Professor Xavier basically says he will keep the kid in his custody and present him in front of the UN as an example of illegal, immoral genetic tampering (the kid was a non-mutant that was injected with the X-factor gene in the womb). Spider-Man's response to this is to rush out of the mansion with Geldoff and beat up everyone in his path; as soon as he gets outside the mansion, Xavier appears standing in front of a tree and says "Peter, what good would that do?". Spider-Man responds, "it was just a thought.".
  • That same issue also gave us the X-Men learning Spider-Man's name.
    (Spidey wakes up in the X-Men's mansion)
    Spider-Man: You took off my mask?!!
    Beast: We wanted to make sure you were still breathing.
    Spider-Man: Man! I am trying to keep a secret identity here!! No one respects my secret identity!! No one!! One secret! That's all I want. I want to put on the mask and keep it on!! And every time I turn around someone somewhere finds out I'm Peter Parker!
    (The X-Men snigger)
    Shadowcat: We, uh, we didn't know your name.
    (Peter buries his head in his hands)
  • On the subject of X-Men and his secret identity, Iceman visits his school and we get this:
    Iceman: Hey, don't I know you?
    Peter: No, you don't.
    Iceman: Yeah I do, you're—
    Peter: (meaningful glare) We've never met.
    Iceman: But—
    Peter: DUDE.
  • From Annual 1, the scene where Kitty & Peter deal with the Shocker
    (Kitty has phased through Shocker's weapons, breaking them)
    Kitty Pryde: Whatever you do... Don't look behind you.
    (Spider-Man is on the wall behind the Shocker)
    Spider-Man: Hi, Herman.
    Shocker: AIIEEE!!!
    (Shocker flees, and runs straight into a web)
  • J. Jonah Jameson blaming Ben Urich for readership of every newspaper in America being down.
  • The entire exchange with the Fantastic Four discussing Reed making water from his urine (inspired by Waterworld, no less), and then giving it to Johnny to drink. All Ben is concerned with is how many times Reed has actually seen the film, whilst Sue has to remind him that giving people urine to drink, refined into water or not, is not something you do.
  • This little exchange once Johnny Storm decides he's going to be living with Peter.
    Johnny: I'm going to do the whole "you" thing.
    Peter: Wallow in self-pity?
  • Ultimate Spidey has trouble keeping his costume repaired during a period when he's broken up with MJ and has to go out wearing just his mask and homemade outfit of street clothes. Unfortunately they don't impress the street thugs very much, but at least he still has his mouth:
    Thug One: What are you supposed to be?
    Spider-Man: What?
    Thug One: The hell is this?
    Spider-Man: I'm Spider-Man. Read a paper.
    Thug One: Where's your costume? [referencing how he only has a mask on, the rest of the suit having been destroyed the previous issue]
    Spider-Man: Your mom's washing it for me.
    Thug Two: Ooooggh, ddaayyymmmnn!!
    Thug One: Oh, 'zat howit is? (attacks Spider-Man)
  • Peter gets really pissed off with the X-Men after they finally undo a "Freaky Friday" Flip:
    Peter: God! You know why people hate you? It's not because you're mutants!! It's because you're all a bunch of @#$@#$ $@$%@ ##@$!! That's why!! You $^$%^ $%^$ $^$%^ $%#^% #$ $% ^#$%^ $%%^!!! AAAGGHHH! (swings off)
    Colossus: Why am I an #$@#$@? I was just standing here.
  • Peter is standing in a lift next to Elektra and can't stop staring at her but glances away every time she looks at him.
    Spider-Man: What was your name again?
    Elektra: Stop staring at them.
    Spider-Man: What? No. What? I was—
    Elektra: (smirks, gives an aside glance)
    • Later in that arc Spider-Man calls Dewolfe and the cops to Hammerhead's hideout using a cellphone he stole from one of the Enforcers. He than webs Hammerhead's mouth when Hammerhead won't stop shouting and gets into a lengthy conversation with the 911 operator because she's a fan.
  • When Spider-Man has his first meeting with the other Knights he cracks a joke, commenting "Where's the chicken wings". Moon Knight states, completely straight-faced, "THERE ARE NO CHICKEN WINGS". This causes Spider-Man to burst out laughing.
  • Mysterio describes Kingpin's death as "A fat man fell and broke his everything".
  • After Miles, with no costume or mask, saves two people and a puppy from a fire, two firefighters approch him for a moment before Miles flees. One of the firefighters, who is African-American, smiles and simply tells this to his partner:
    Firefighter: Told you Spider-Man was black.
  • The second Spider-Man's first encounter with Spider-Woman. Poor Miles gets his entire body tied up in web, and tries to hop away to "call the police", only to trip and knock himself out on a satellite dish. It really demonstrates how young and unprepared he is.
    Spider-Woman: "Going to the police"... What a dork.
  • Miles is proving to be quite the smart ass, much like Peter.
    Captain Quaid: What's your name?
    Miles Morales/Spider-Man 2: Uh, Spider-Man?
    Captain Quaid: Spider-Man's dead. Who are you?
    Miles: Uh, can I be Thor then?
    • Also, Miles claiming he's 30 years old when questioned, and Quaid ordering him back home since it's a school night.
  • Any time Miles uses his venom strike, since he does it by poking two fingers into his opponent, usually during a heated punch-up.
  • Ganke's epic lying skills:
    Miles: I need you to cover for me.
    ...
    Ganke: What if they see you?
    Miles: Puh-leeze. (leaves)
    Judge (their roommate): Where'd Miles go?
    Ganke: Miles who?
  • This little gem from Miles' fight with Batroc the Leaper:
    Batroc: You are beneath me child. You cannot offend me.
    Miles: Actually you're kind of offending me. The Spider-Man before me got the Green Goblin and Doctor Octopus. And I get Batroc The Leaper.
    Batroc: (after one of his henchmen nearly shoots him while trying to hit Miles, who's on Batroc's back) Moron!! Do you plan on getting paid?? Then stop shooting at me!!
    Miles: Where do you get these guys?
    Batroc: You would not believe what I turned away.
  • In his first battle with Venom, Miles has to protect his dad from the symbiote. In order for him to prevent his dad from recognizing his own son's voice, Miles sports a fake British accent to throw him off. It is pretty hilarious as well as pretty clever.
  • Apparently many people think Miles and Ganke have something going on. This includes: Miles' father, mother (according to his dad), and his current girlfriend, Katie.
    • This ended up being a Fandom Nod due to a God Never Said That where fans misinterpreted statements from the editor and jumped to conclusions that Miles was gay.
  • From Ultimate Spider-Man #200, this little Seinfeldian Conversation between Miles and Ganke as they step off the bus:
    Ganke: We had to take the bus.
    Miles: Stop.
    Ganke: I almost got peed on.
    Miles: We're here, Ganke, stop whining.
    Ganke: We could have webbed here in five minutes.
    Miles: That's not what the webs are for. They're expensive and they're for, you know...
    Ganke: If you were the captain of the Enterprise you wouldn't let anyone use the transporter.
    Miles: Well, I don't think those things are safe at all.
  • Miles' reaction to seeing Peter Parker back from the dead.

Ultimate Spider-Man, the video game

  • Spidey's Oh, Crap moment with Rhino: "I'm so scared I can't even finish my lame joke."
  • After that, he gets thrown into a wall and says to the people "nothing's broken except my spine... and ribs... and everything else."
  • Any of his reactions when he goes into the water and Super Drowning Skills kick in:
    "Blub! ...did I just say 'blub'?"
  • At many points in the game, Spidey has to rescue innocent civilians caught in the crossfire of his fights. At one point, he does so while NOT in costume. Luckily, the construction worker he saves simply comes to the conclusion that Peter is a mutant. Unluckily, he's not excited about getting rescued by one.
    Construction Worker: NO!
    Peter: Mutants are people too!
    Construction Worker: O-okay.
    Peter: Say it!
    Construction Worker: Mutants are people too!
  • Venom eating a small child should not go here, under normal circumstances. However, said small child being a Take That to the children constantly losing their balloons in Spider-Man 2 makes this utterly hilarious, especially since the games use the same "Yay! Balloon!" audio for the child.
