    I must confess I was a little disappointed that the book opened with the seven page Joe Quesada prologue, as I had assumed it has been created solely for the Wizard Zero issue, and had assumed it was destined to be bonus material in the trade paper back, and not an active part of the miniseries itself. Than again it does get the story off to a exciting start, and it's rather fun to contrast the capture of Electro with the later capture of Kraven, as they both have their comedic moments, and I can't wait for the Ultimates get knocked down a peg or two when the Six gather together, and go from being a relatively easy catch to a group that could give them a very rough time of it.

    Unless the mystery sixth member of the Ultimate Six is Hush, I just dont really have much of an interest. Its only my faith in Bendis thatll keep me reading this mini. Read Full Review
