Trivia: Ultimate Spider-Man
Trivia tropes for the comics:
- Crack Is Cheaper: A direct market copy of the first issue is unusually pricey, currently valued at nearly $200. That's much cheaper than, say, Action Comics #1 or Detective Comics #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.
- Fandom Nod: 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, using several arguments fans used to bash his hairstyle.
- What Could Have Been: Spider-Man: The New Animated Series was originally going to be an adaptation of this comic series. Instead, it was changed into being a sort of follow-up to the first live-action film.
