David Marquez's cover for the issue pays homage to John Romita's iconic splash page in Amazing Spider-Man #50, in which the hero's costume is shown discarded in a litter bin.

Morales assumed the role of Spider-Man in 2011 after the Ultimate Universe incarnation of Peter Parker was killed off in a battle with the Green Goblin.

Marvel has also teased wholesale changes in its Superior Spider-Man title, hinting at jeopardy for the title character in an upcoming storyline.

Ultimate Spider-Man #23 is released in May.
