    Ultimate Avengers has quietly become my favorite Ultimate Universe offering since the relaunch. It's not overly complicated and it doesn't reinvent the wheel, but it's reliable, offers exactly what it says on the tin, features a likable cast of mostly new faces, and does its thing exceptionally well. And best of all, it manages to excite me month in and month out. You can't really ask for more than that from this sort of thing. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Timothy Callahan Mar 6, 2010

    This issue has been a long time coming (issue #4 came out last fall), but it jumps right back into the action as if no time has passed at all. And that's how it should be. That's how this series operates. Full speed ahead. On the page, if not on the publishing schedule. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Mar 4, 2010

    Ultimate Avengers #5 was another fun read. Millar continues to approach this title like it was a summer blockbuster movie. Millar is not trying to re-invent the genre. Instead, what Millar is doing is delivering a solidly crafted action themed super hero tale. I strongly recommend Ultimate Avengers to any fans of action/adventure based comic books. If you are simply looking for some quality entertainment then Ultimate Avengers definitely worth the cover price. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Dave Wallace Mar 2, 2010

    I'm struggling to point out any major flaws in the craft of this issue, and for that reason I can't bring myself to award it any less than an average bullet-rating -- but in all honesty, I'm starting to feel that my affections for the world of Millar's Ultimates may have been exhausted. Just as I'll still pull out Aerosmith's "Toys in the Attic" to listen to a record that captures the energy and freshness of a new and exciting band, I'm sure that I'll still reread Millar and Hitch's two volumes of Ultimates for many years to come. But I'm not sure that I'm particularly interested in following the series any further. Read Full Review
