    I'm not entirely convinced Ultimate Comics Armor Wars will achieve the creative heights it could, but there's still time to prove otherwise. If nothing else, this series is a visual stunner and proof positive that Marvel are putting the Ultimate line back on track after the past disastrous six months. Read Full Review

    As far as Marvel comics go, I'm an Ultimate (Comics) fan, in it for the long haul - or at least until the next cannibal scene where a bloated villain is feasting on the remains of a dead super-heroine. Ultimate (Comics) Armor Wars #1 is a solid start to reinventing/rebooting the Tony Stark character, and I hope the next three issues hold up as well. For now, I'm a satisfied reader, and think others will be too, earning Armor Wars #1 (I'm too am getting tired of my Ultimate (Comics) dig) a solid 4 out of 5 Stars. Read Full Review

    It's not going to set the comics world on fire or anything, but it looks like this will be an entertaining miniseries, with nice art, good action, and maybe even some interesting character work. With only four issues, it shouldn't drag out too long, and it seems like Ellis will have a good time exploring some technological ideas and bouncing characters off each other. We could definitely have it worse. Read Full Review

    While the idea of redoing this Iron Man story again may not appeal to some, the writing of Warren Ellis should assuage doubts. His writing of Tony Stark is top-notch and he introduces the plot well, assisted by Steve Kurth's realistic art. This series looks to be an entertaining read. Read Full Review
