    This issue ofAll-New Ultimates showed that the heroes aren't perfect in being heroes and makes an interesting story when some may be close to death or close enough to realize that something is wrong with them. We do see the Ultimate version of Crossbones which is an surprising twist as he's a gang leader instead of an assassin. So seeing new villains, characters and threats for the team it makes me want to know what will happen next now that the threat has been established. How will all these things connect with each other? I guess we'll find out in the next issue of All-New Ultimates. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matt Dodge May 16, 2014

    "All New Ultimates" #2 really does live up to the name: new characters, new team, new status quo, and new creators. Michel Fiffe has handled the transition from creator-owned and self-published work to the grind of a big Marvel relaunch well. The characters all have distinct personalities, and with group dynamics that make sense. On the art side, it appears that Amilcar Pinna still has a few kinks to work out. His is work is vivid and detailed, there is just an tendency for odd angles and framing. Pinna does have great potential, and he certainly deserves more than a couple issues to grow into the series.

    The bulk of the book consists of a large battle sequence. While it has its moments, as a whole it's a bit too confusing. Pinna's art is occasionally too stiff to convey the intended kinetic nature of the sequence. Fiffe's characterization of the team in the latter half of the book is solid, though. Read Full Review

    Despite the lack of any clear story line and uninteresting art style, I am still ready and willing to continue reading this series. I hold a special place in my heart for Miles Morales but it isn't him that is keeping me reading rather, it is the overall depth into the characters that Fiffe is able to bring to us and not just in the main characters as both the Skulls and the police has some weight behind them. After all it is only issue two and I'm sure that the team of Fiffe, Pinna, and Woodard are just testing the waters much like the New Ultimates! Read Full Review

    With characters this interesting, it's discouraging that All New-Ultimates #2 doesn't try to really raise the bar and attempt new things. Basic panel layout and odd coloring schemes hurt the tone of an already packed story with what feels like editorial oversight, but the conflict is quickly escalating and should result in a much better third issue as pieces of the story come together.

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring May 14, 2014

    The second issue of ALL NEW ULTIMATES is a bit of a disappointment. There's still a lot of potential here but the execution doesn't hit the mark. There's problems within the art and the one-liners dialogue and the fact the story just isn't that interesting; however, there is a glimmer of hope that this could be a good series, as this team is still new and learning to work together and that shows in this issue. But for now, I do not recommend this issue. Read Full Review
