    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk Sep 21, 2012

    A wildly careening and awesomely out of control storyline packed with satire and commentary just got its stakes raised. "Divided We Fall" and the upcoming "United We Stand" are Ultimate Comics storytelling at its best. Read Full Review

    And on the odd chance that you haven't seen USA Today lately, I won't spoil the (not entirely logical) plot twist in this issue: if you're not currently reading Ultimates, issue #15 would be a perfectly reasonable jumping-on point; and since Marvel's already spoiling #16 for us, you'd better get on it fast!

    Ultimates is a solid book going in an amazing direction. The world is upside-down, and I love it. I like the fact nothing ever returns to normalcy, and in this issue, things just get crazier, but I refuse to spoil them for you guys. We get to see a couple of new groups that are 616 favorites and Captain America is slowly becomign a brand new character. Read Full Review

    With each new issue, Sam Humphries makes The Ultimates more and more his own series. The book finallyfeels relevant in a way it hasn't for a long time. The series has a bright future, even as the Ultimates themselves face a long, hard battle in putting their country back together again. Read Full Review

    Overall, was this a must read? I'm not so sure. To be honest, I haven't read ‘Ultimates' in quite a while, so I wasn't immediately up-to-speed. I don't know who this Morez guy is or of he's supposed to be an Ultimate version of a 616 character. They do summarize things in the beginning, but it's not a clean pick-up-and-read issue. It's okay, though. Solid characterization and storyline. Average art. Not bad. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Kyle Mc Sep 20, 2012

    Going into this event I was one of those people that wasn't reading The Ultimates and coming off this event I don't think I'll be continuing. Aside from the flaws that I have mentioned with the story there is no overarching hook to it, I just simply don't care. I've heard people at my LCS say that Ultimates is the closest to the movies but if it is I'd rather just stick to the movies because this isn't doing it for me. Read Full Review

    When the stage fits the story poorly, you stop believing the story. When you then add in logical leaps like a bus being the sole means of controlling a drone army or Captain America winning a national write-in presidential vote based just on battle footage, and you wonder what happened to the ultra-realistic world of the Ultimates. Because instead of the potential for some really incisive commentary on our jaded, connected, dysfunctional world, what we have in its place is a naked piece of fan service. Read Full Review
