    Both story and art continue to impress in Ultimate Six with characterisation and a fast-moving plot proving that they need not be mutually exclusive. The title shines as a great example of mainstream comics with brains: balancing an intelligent plot with relevance to events in the world today with larger-than-life action and flashy superheroics. The next issue can't come quick enough. Read Full Review

    I found myself growing a bit annoyed at the opening section of this issue as it seems bound and determined to make Nick Fury look like he's backed into a corner, and I kept waiting for Nick Fury to defend his actions with a Jack Nicholson "you can't handle the truth"-type moment where he points out the obvious fact that the five escaped villains are truly unrepentant monsters who will readily kill anyone who stands in their way, but this moment never arrives, which made the scene feel like it was one half of what could've been one heck of a debate. Now I realize Nick Fury is supposed to be a good little solider, and having him get in a heated debate with the President of the United States wouldn't be a good career move on his part, but it certainly would've made for a more engaging reading experience. However, the closing half of this issue is pure excitement as the Ultimate Five move in to attack, and pretty much decimate the entire base of operations that is working to capture them.
