    Ultimate Power #1 is a solid start to what should be a very entertaining mini-series. There is now doubt that with Bendis, Land and Ryan on this mini-series we have more than enough talent to make this an excellent read. Next issue should certainly boast more action that this debut issue. I would definitely recommend giving this mini-series a try. Read Full Review

    I guess the only real question here is, where do I place my bet that the Squadron Supreme is being mind controlled? Read Full Review

    Ill be clear: my enjoyment of this book stems from the fact that Im a big fan of the Ultimate Universe, that I enjoy Greg Lands art, and that Im a fan of Bendis writing when hes on form. If these boxes arent ticked for you, then you might want to consider giving this series a miss but I for one am fairly keen to see how the Ultimate Universes first major crossover plays out.

    In conclusion, Ultimate Power, like the other Ultimate comics, is a mildly amusing, very good-looking comic thats far too light on the story. The biggest question I have now isnt Whatll happen next, but Who did Greg Land use for models? Read Full Review

    However, whats up with that ominous of 9? I guess that explains the lack of even a speaking role for the Squadron Supreme in this first issue. Welcome back, decompression! Read Full Review

    The only reason this issue scored as high as it did is because first issues come with the benefit of the doubt and minimal expectations. There hasnt been enough development to the story for any serious disappointment to come into play yet. But dont worry, its well on its way. Read Full Review

    All in all, Im thinking about dropping the limited series after this debut. For all the beauties of Lands art, the dialogue, story, and pacing are so awful I cant keep reading. Unless I hear about a great twist next issue, this series is out of sight, out of mind. Read Full Review

    With the events of Ultimate Galactus just finishing up earlier this year, and with the truly epic story taking place in the Ultimates, this first issue of Ultimate Power just doesnt measure up. Who knows? Perhaps something of consequence will come of this series, but I dont know that I care enough to stick with it to find out. Read Full Review
