    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck Apr 22, 2010

    The Ultimates series has been both interesting and, aside from great artwork, largely disappointing. Perhaps it's because the comic takes a great team - the Avengers - and turns them all into murderous jerks. Read Full Review

    That said, the issue isn't without its merits. The closing pages reveal a Nick Fury subplot running through Ultimate Avengers that's undeniably intriguing. The character work is still tight this issue, and Carlos Pacheco's artwork is as dashing and beautiful as ever. Even the textbook "Millar Moment Of Excess" this issue is cool and fits the title. As far as the franchise goes, Ultimate Avengers is still the Ultimate title I'm enjoying the most, and certainly the one with the most momentum and story potential heading forward. This issue was just cut off at the knees with a silly plot element that kept it from capitalizing on the strength of the previous five installments. Read Full Review

    Entertaining, but devoid of any real lasting impact or emotion. A typical, yet slightly toned down Mark Millar story that had it's high points, but never really hits those classic Ultimates moments. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 21, 2010

    Millar ends this story with a cliffhanger, and "Ultimate Avengers 2" is prominently advertised in this book. There's more to be told here, but the story of the reunion between Captain America and Red Skull is done. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Dave Wallace Apr 20, 2010

    As money becomes an ever-more decisive factor in whether I decide to pick up a comic or not -- particularly when it comes to Marvel books, many of which I've thoroughly enjoyed over the last few years, but which seem to have been going off the boil a little lately -- the time comes to make decisions about what books to keep following and which ones to drop. And despite my love of the original Ultimates and my general enjoyment of much of Mark Millar's work, on the strength of this first arc of Ultimate Comics Avengers, I won't be picking up the second.
