    Joe Bennett takes over the art for this story. His heavily muscled figures are at times more extreme than I'd like from the Ultimate Universe, but his dynamic camera angles lend a nicely cinematic flair to the story. In terms of costume design, there needs to be more consistency between Bennett's work and previous artists. For instance, Thor has magically traded Mjolnir for his artificial axe-hammer again since his previous appearance. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Matt Sargeson Mar 13, 2013

    Has Humphries' Ultimate Comics Ultimates somehow gotten so bad that it's good? That's difficult to say, though it is starting to carry a certain goofy charm that had me smiling rather than swearing (my main response to the last few issues). Still it does seem to be wasting time with detours when its most exciting plot " the Infinity Gauntlet " is right under its nose. Ah well"I'll take any improvement where I can get it. Still think twice about buying it, but borrowing it for a read? Yeah, this month it's most definitely worth it. Read Full Review

    This book has been very close to getting dropped the past few months, but this issue has me back on board. I like the California vs America tension that is building here, especially because Captain American is completely cold to them. While I still think this book is a bit scattered, and I'm not really into young Tony Stark: The Tumornator, I feel like this book is finally getting back on track to awesome.Overall, I recommend this book.

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Mar 8, 2013

    I think at this point I'm reading the Ultimates out of habit, I have almost no hope left for it. It's not even like my problems with the continuity are it, the issue just wasn't very good. The only highlight were the scenes with Tony and Anthony which still boggle my mind, but at least they're good unlike the rest of the book. Read Full Review
