As with most penultimate issues of an arc, this issue's more about setting up the final confrontation between hero and villain. While not quite as deep as the intrigue we saw in the first four issues, Millar still delivers a very solid story and has me very excited to see how this story will end. Considering there's a future for this version of the Avengers, it's safe to say most of our heroes will remain, but what will happen with S.H.I.E.L.D.? What's going to be the perception of the Ultimates? Will this version of the Avengers still exist with the Ultimates? These are the questions that I came up with as I finished this issue and it's really exciting to care this much about Millar's Ultimate Universe creation again. Read Full Review
