    This issue brings us to the halfway point of the story, and the two teams have yet to meet. On one hand this does build up a nice sense of anticipation, but I have to confess that I'm starting to get a bit concerned that Mark Millar is spending a little too much time arranging the pieces on the board that the big event won't have enough room to do it justice. Still this issue does have itself a pretty intense encounter between the Ultimates & Magneto, and Ultimate X-Men fans get themselves a pretty big surprise, as the death of an X-Man is revealed in these pages, before it was offered up in the pages of the monthly title. As for the art, I'm a fan of Chris Bachalo's work, and I'm glad to see his work on such a high profile project. However, action sequences have never been his strong suit, and as such I'm not sure he's such a good fit for this action heavy miniseries, as the Ultimates battle with Magneto in this issue lacks the visual punch & clarity it needed to have.
