Ultimate Power #4 is proof that when JMS doesn't try to climb on his soapbox and get all preachy and PC that he is very capable of cranking out a quality read. Ultimate Power continues to be an enjoyable mini-series. The reader gets treated to a nice blend of strong writing and excellent artwork. I certainly recommend giving this mini-series a try or at least picking up the trade paperback whenever it is released. Read Full Review
This series might not be the most intelligent comic on the stands - it's not much more than an excuse to have the two universes of characters fight each other, after all - but it's carried off well, with attractive artwork and some interesting plot points cropping up this issue which suggest that the series has been fairly tightly plotted between the three writers. The revelation that Nick Fury might be more at fault for the contamination of the probes than Reed Richards promises some fireworks later on in the series, and his unrevealed confidante adds an air of mystery to the book which should keep readers interested. It's not going to change the medium, and it may well prove to be fairly inconsequential in the grand scheme of things, but it's an enjoyable, colourful romp which is providing enough action and intrigue to make it worth picking up on a monthly basis.
