    The conclusion to World War X shows that the Ultimate X-Men have so much to offer the Ultimate Comics as a whole. What started as broken people, ended as the X-Men of tomorrow. This was the best ending you could hope for the X-Men going into Cataclysm because that will be the real test in terms of what they can really do united. If you are an X-Men fan and want something different that keeps you at the edge of your seat, this book is what you should be reading, Woods understands the X-Men. Read Full Review

    In my reviews ofUltimate X-Men,I have said many good things about Alvaro Martinez's art, but he takes it to the next level in his last issue on the title. The fight between Jean Grey and Kitty Pryde is a true battle royale. Martinez has a great handle on Kitty's power set and finally remembered she can float on air. He also shows Jean's progressive relapse into her Phoenix persona. Chris Sotomayor's colors continue to add depth to Wood's script and Martinez's pencils. He captures Jean's rage by using dark oranges and reds and uses bright colors in the epilogue. All in all,Ultimate Comics X-Men#33 is a great ending to the best run on theUltimate X-Mentitle and provides some glimpses of hope after an extremely dark time for mutants in the Ultimate Universe.

    Artist Alvaro Martinez spares no expense on this conclusion to World War X. His settings are absolutely gorgeous. Whether he's drawing the lust forest of Utopia, Jean's fiery powers, or the crumbling Tian, it all looks spectacular. He also has a great subtly about his character work. He can make the characters speak with their eyes and their body posture in addition to the world balloons coming out of their mouths. This was an amazing looking issue that makes for a fine endnote to a highly enjoyable series. Read Full Review

    ULTIMATE COMICS X-MEN has been an amazing series since Brian Wood took over. The build up to this battle was phenomenal; however, this issue was quite the let down. This doesn't feel like ULTIMATE X-MEN. It doesn't feel like Brian Wood. It feels like it was rushed out just so Marvel could march forward to CATACLYSM. This issue ends in the middle of something and tries ever so quickly to wrap it up. As I stated before, maybe this will read much better in trade, but as it stands, as a single issue, this issue #33 was a let down. Read Full Review
