Ultimate Power #2 was an absolute blast to read. Bendis is delivering an enjoyable storyline. Combine that with Land and Ryan's wonderful artwork and you have the ingredients for a fun little mini-series. I would definitely recommend giving Ultimate Power a chance. Read Full Review
Regardless of that storm in a teacup, I have to say that the book's art looks pretty good. Yes, there are a couple of panels which look a little "off" - the frankly unnecessary upskirt shot of Kitty Pride which opens the book and the shifting facial features of Hyperion are both a little eyebrow-raising - but for the most part, Land's images are slick, energetic and tell the story clearly. This issue in particular is a gift for a superhero artist, as it amounts to little more than an extended fight scene between all of the major players in the Ultimate Universe, with the arrival of each group of characters giving Land a perfect excuse for a parade of big, flashy images.

Bendis revisits that more compelling model in typical slapdash form, and yet promises to stretch what should be a compact four issues out to nine where absolutely nothing keeps happening and the plot advances one step at most in each.

This is a shoddy, unoriginal mess. Read Full Review
