At 13th Dimension: Spider-Man's Screwiest Spider-Verses: Teens vs. Ultron!

Tonight, my pal John has a new post up over at comics news 'n' culture blog 13th Dimension, an' I helped! Continuing John's sure-to-be-Eisner-nominated series on weird and oddball alternate Spider-Man Universes, he's told us all about the time Spider-Man contributed to engineering education for teens and he fought the rampaging Doctor Octopus and Ultron. Well, sorta. In the end it's actually the civilians who save Spidey's bacon (and that's even without him being Spider-Ham!) You can pretty much count on Spider-Man just passing the buck in his adventures, can't you?:

Ah, that's the Spider-Man we know and love.

Also, as Spider-Marshall-McLuhan would remind us, this is a comic book brought you to by the fine folks at the major corporations who contribute to the National Action Council for Minorities in Engineering, and so they get to have their names listed in a Spider-Man comic book. Be certain to buy stuff from them all! (Hey, it's just like Kickstarter!)

So check out SPIDEY’S SCREWIEST SPIDER-VERSES #3: Teenagers vs. Ultron over at 13th Dimension, the comics site that's ten dimensions better than reality!

In conclusion: engineering jobs for minority kids: good. Ultron: bad.
