    As I mentioned in my review of Thor, this is actually one of three comics starring the thunder god this week and I'll say that it's heads-and-tails the best. It's an adaptation and update in the best sense of the terms, using this rich mythology (both cultural and pop-cultural) as a basis for a sharp, forward-looking science fiction thriller. And, without spoiling anything, the twist regarding Baron Zemo is quite stellar. Read Full Review

    Baron Zemo also rises to the forefront thanks to a cool little twist at the end of the issue. Carlos Pacheco's art is very easy on the eyes as well. The only problem is that Pacheco doesn't inspire the same level of awe he has in some earlier works. Too often his work seems confined to panels that aren't large enough to showcase the full scope of battle and conflict. At four issues, perhaps Ultimate Comics Thor isn't quite long enough for Pacheco to receive the breathing room he needs. But as far as the script and story pacing go, four seems like the proper number. This series isn't as satisfyingly dense as Hickman's SHIELD or his independent work, but it's a respectable effort from a writer who clearly needs to spend more time in the Ultimate Universe.

    This issue drives the story forward and definitely makes the second half look interesting. Hickman's Loki is the focus and is a very intriguing interpretation of the character. With so little of the Ultimate versions of these characters defined in hard terms, Hickman and Pacheco take advantage and move away from the traditional Marvel universe versions of the characters.
