One of the most ruthless villains in the history of the Marvel Universe - the fan-favorite Carnage - gets the Ultimate treatment! And though young Peter Parker has proven himself time and time again on the field of battle, can even he hope to defeat this heartless killing machine? Also, a bizarre occurrence brings Spider-Man and Wolverine together for the weirdest team-up in super-hero history! As the two struggle to get to the bottom of this mystery, their lives literally unravel. Why are both heroes too concerned with their own lives to work together? Plus: Johnny Storm realizes that despite his new flame powers and fame on the horizon, he still doesn't have a high-school diploma. And where does the young New Yorker enroll? Why, none other than a certain Queens high school that also counts one Peter Parker - Spider-Man - as a student. This work collects "Ultimate Spider-Man," numbered 60-71.

There are some good parts in this edition, with some strong emotion and some good characterizations. The Spider-man/Wolverine story is cute, but a definite throw away. I really liked the little disclaimers at the start of the two editions that make it up.
The final story, bringing Dr. Strange into the mix, was very disappointing. Which brings me to my major criticism of the series in general: there is a lot of good character development amongst the leads (though they seem to have stalled in the growth process. Is Peter intending to stay 15 forever?), but the villains get very little air-time when they are not fighting Spider-man. Dr. Strange falls squarely into this category.
Norman Osborne, and Otto Octavius had a good treatment in their stories, showing us some of their decline into madness, but we don't get to see much of the other villains. Venom is a great example. When Eddie becomes a screaming, slathering monster, there seems to be no reason for it. Electro, Sandman, Dr. Strange, all seems to be flat.
If the comic was not so well written for the main characters, I don't think I would notice the lack of bad guy characterization (and I wouldn't be buying these books), but I do. I hope some more time can be spent in the future, really bringing the villains to life.
As for this volume, once again it is missing anything major by way of extras, and this I am really missing. I liked the stories, but there was a definite drop from the heights Volumes 1 and 4 achieved.
One thing worth mentioning here is that this volume sheds some light on why Bendis glazed over Dr. Connors and his short run as the Lizard in this world, as Carnage fulfills all the roles of that character as well as making it so Peter and his father are also involved, which really helps hammer home the tragedy that occurs midway through the book as a very personal issue that will haunt our hero for a long time to come.
In addition, the volume finally works more with the three background characters who Bendis had been neglecting for awhile while the main cast sorted through their issues (special mention goes to finally working with Flash even if he quickly passes the limelight over to Kong).
Going back to the story, while the first half deals primarily with Carnage, the second half does it's best to try both lightening things up as well as really looking at the state Peter's left in after the Carnage Arc. I'd be lying if I said sometimes these arcs have difficulty handling it, but honestly I'm thankful for the cooldown Bendis decided to go on before launching Peter into another set of trials. However, I'd be lying if I said that I liked how this particular book ended, as it feels like there's a lot of the volume specific stuff left unfinished, though I imagine several of these lingering issues aren't going to be resolved for some time.
Sure, this isn't nearly as good an over all volume as any of the first 3, but it's definitely carries a lot of weight with it. If you're already to this point in the series, this volume will keep you hooked and ready for a couple more volumes to come.
This is a great Spider-man series!
