    Conclusion aside, it's a competent but forgettable issue. Pokaski makes the best of the role he's got with some entertaining dialogue, and although Tyler Kirkham's artwork is something of an acquired taste, you have to admit that its adherence to the Top Cow house style means that it matches Finch's look on Ultimatum better than any Marvel artist would. As the "concluding" issue of UFF, this demonstrates quite well exactly why the Ultimate Universe needed a retool in the first place. The series goes out with a whimper, and one decidedly unbecoming of what should be Marvel's "gold standard" line. Read Full Review

    There was a time when the Ultimate line was hailed as a fresh, continuity-light version of the Marvel Universe, with books that didn't require any outside reading or prior knowledge to enjoy. This issue is the opposite, with a plot that makes little sense if you haven't read Ultimatum (and only slightly more if you have), and a lack of any real originality or inspiration in the storytelling. I'm not quite sure how we got from there to here, but if this is the best that the Ultimate imprint can offer, perhaps it's for the best that Marvel is winding it up. Ultimate Fantastic Four has never been the jewel in the crown of the Ultimate line, but this is a mediocre way for it to end. Read Full Review
