    Personally I think that Spider-Man 1 was the best first issue out of the All-New, All, Different Spider-man line up.

    I went with Web Warriors first issue, nice interaction between 'Mayday' and Gwen, and the sheer size and scope of the Electroverse made for a compelling read.

    Spidey, classic Peter Parker doing what he does best without any of Slott's run weighing him down.

    And I read Spider-Man #1, it was poorly done. Miles taking Blackheart, the literal son of Mephisto, down with his freaking Venom Blast? Seriously? So Thor, who uses Mjolnir, can't take him down but Miles can? Jeez, it's just tediously boring at this point. God forbid Miles loses a fight, you know, like Peter used to lose all the time. Oh, that's right, Miles is so much better and superior to Peter in every way.

    Marvel Universe's main Spider-Man my ass.

    Spidey is my choice. It was a pretty good/fun comic and I wasn't expecting that at all.
    ASM and SM are sligthy behind imo.

    Yeah, that bothers me as well. And that's coming from someone who highly enjoys the character. If you can, try reading the other books Miles is on, it was certainly pleasant to read after so many Bendis wanking. He's actually treated as someone who isn't all powerful and can fail and actually gets taken down a lot, pretty easily too lol. Specially his appeareance in the Chulk comic, it shows how a fight against a powerhouse would actually go.

    @amazingfantasy: Huh... I'll give them a shot, thanks for the recommendation.

    I want to like the character, really I do. And I absolutely love the concept, it's just the execution that's putting me off, especially with the way Bendis is doing it. But I'll keep an open mind, thanks.

    @friv: Yeah I totally get it, and don't blame you. I've seen a lot of people saying the similar things. But, we'll see how it goes, hope you enjoy it.
    And it was no problem at all, mate!

    @friv: Yeah, dont read "Spider-Man" if you dont like that, Bendis will always overwank Miles and make him oneshot everything with that venom blast crap. Like the other guy said Miles gets written better by others and gets owned easily.

    @currentthor2015: I read it because I wanted to give the character another chance, but you're one hundred percent right. It's funny that the person that created him is also the worst writer for him, pretty ironic.

    Thanks for the advice though.

    @kcomicfan While I have only read the debuts of ASM and SM, I feel like the most unique from them all is Web Warriors. As I said, I haven't read it, but the others all feel too familiar and relatively old in comparison. For example, SM was nothing new and retreaded the same themes of UCSM and basically every other spider-man series ever made. In contrast, Web Warriors seems like it takes 6 different, diverse characters and puts them into a new, uncommon team that does not rely on the ordinary 616 Peter Parker and does something new and fun with the concept of spider-themed superheroes. ASM on the other hand had a really fun and interesting new take on the character which became boring after the second or third issue as it went back to old tropes and followed terrible, one-off villains. Because I haven't read Web Warriors and SM has at this time only had one issue which was disappointing, ASM gets my vote.

    ASM quite handily, with 2099 and Spider-Man/Deadpool close behind.

    I've extolled my love for ASM #1 a number of times here, so I'll keep it brief. It succinctly introduces us to Peter's new world, portrays him as a mature and capable young genius, showcases Spidey's new tech AND (as a completely unnecessary bonus) gives us snippets of the other Spider-books. Shame that Slott has been dropping in quality since issue #3.

    2099 and S/D were the only others that grabbed my interest straight away.
