    I've been consistently impressed with this series as each issue has offered up a solid story. After laying the ground work for the first few issues, the series feels like it's really picking up steam and building to a pretty epic climax. The image on the final page of the comic has me very excited to see where the series goes from here. Ultimate Comics X-Men is an ambitious series that rewards long time readers and new fans alike. And with one of the best authors in comics currently, I don't see this series failing to entertain any time soon. Read Full Review

    Solid performances from everyone on the team result in an issue that moves the plot along and serves as a mini character study on Quicksilver. While the big reveal is a bit predictable, Spencer is surely setting up readers for something big. Read Full Review

    I love that Nick Spencer is basically undoing all of the bullshit that Jeph Loeb did during that horrendous Ultimatum event... Now I'm I'm sure some of you are thinking that's a somewhat hypocritical thing for me to say seeing as that I'm usually such a stickler for continuity. But when it comes to Ultimatum? I say it was SUCH a terrible event it SHOULD be forgotten, and erased from continuity! I mean hell, if DC can erase their entire history, why can't I pretend Ultimatum never happened? Anyway, this was an okay comic with an ending I never saw coming, seeing as that EVERYTHING was pointing towards Apocalypse being the “God” in the cave. The Magneto reveal was a HUGE swerve that has me mildly interested in the next few issues here. Read Full Review

    Carlo Barberi fills Paco Medina's shoes on art duties, but their styles are so similar that a reader might not even notice. Medina had a cartoony style but kept the visuals grounded, but Barberi takes liberties in certain areas; mainly, the Scarlet Witch's chest. What was once one of the more toned down Ultimate character redesigns has been transformed into a doe-eyed beauty with proportions exaggerated enough to make Betty Boop jealous. Read Full Review
