    While there's a debate here about just how much praise the comics industry should give writers from other media who treat the medium like a hobby, rather than work, it's very hard to argue against such entertaining results. "Ultimate Wolverine Vs. Hulk" #3 is, almost inexplicably, just as fun today as it would've been 3 years ago. Read Full Review

    So, if you've been anxiously awaiting the continuation of this series, and have managed to still be anxious about it, Lindelof and Yu do a good job of getting the book moving again. But, really, for a story that takes place between Ultimate X-Men issues #69 and #71 and before Ultimates 2 issue #11, there's not much that can happen of any consequence. That's probably the main reason that, although the comic is well done, I just don't care anymore. Read Full Review

    I certainly don't despise this book. It's a better showcase for these Ultimate characters than some other books I could name. However, it's clear to me the long delays have been unkind to Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk. I no longer feel like I'm reading the same series. What issue #3 does offer feels like a case of too little, too late. Fortunately, I need only turn on the TV tonight to remind myself what storytelling heights Mr. Lindelof is truly capable of.

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Mar 5, 2009

    Despite the problems with clarity, there are some interesting ideas at play here. Lindelof's introduction of "new" character - new to the Ultimate universe, anyway - is intriguing, mainly because I find I'm curious about how he's retooled and changed this familiar character. Furthermore, an intelligent Hulk who devolves into a mindless brute when he loses control of his emotions work well. The madder Hulk gets, the stupider Hulk gets. No one is stupider than Hulk!! However, what Wolverine hopes to accomplish by pressing those buttons isn't clear at all. Facing off against Hulk-sans-brains doesn't prove to be any sort of an advantage. Read Full Review
