    Just because this issue breaks my heart does not mean it's not good. It's actually exemplary. This creative team brought together many different elements to capture the difficulty of the Ultimates' schism while relying on older plot devices to drive the series to a creatively complicated but well-executed place. I'm excited, and scared, for what's coming for the Ultimates, but the series is definitely in the right hands. Read Full Review

    Ultimates has yet to disappoint and it shows no signs of even coming close to doing so. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Aug 17, 2016

    The hope in general was for this creative team to crank the dial with Ultimates #10, and that is exactly what they did. All for the best when the future of this team is now at stake, the future of the world is at stake, and the soul of what most of these heroes are fighting for is at stake. Read Full Review

    Basically, the stakes are raising for the team and the comic is continuing on a great path. If you want more of the storyline then you'll need to go out, buy Issue #10, and read it for yourself. We don't want to spoil it for you because it's extremely interesting – we recommend this run thoroughly. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Sankalp G. Sep 8, 2016

    Al Ewing again has beautifully tied up the issue with Civil War and it is must read for completionist people. With the seemingly big baddie out of his jail, like Vision, this series has been a slow burner and is going to have a big climax. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Aug 22, 2016

    The writing and art team had too much of a good thing going for the pace to slow to a crawl for the sole reason of pleasing Marvel editorial. While I'm still on board to follow the Ultimates, I really want our main story to keep moving forward and have this book escape Event tie-in status. Ultimately, there is fun to be had in small doses here when the book isn't forced to retread familiar territory. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hctor A Aug 19, 2016

    Although Ewing's writing was still effective and Rocafort's art was still great, this issue was a let-down. It is not too different from earlier chapters of this series, which I had loved or at the very least liked a lot but a lot of tiny things add up to make this the least appealing version of The Ultimates to me.
