    It's hard to believe that Ultimates 2 #100 is the last of this series, but one heck of a number to end it on if you ask me. A book like this you don't get everyday. I feel proud to have seen this series of stories evolve from Mighty Avengers (kind of different but a stepping stone for many of these characters), to Ultimates, to Ultimates 2. When we didn't have Fantastic Four, we had Ultimates to take us to infinity and beyond. Anyone who wasn't reading this book has missed out on a corner of the Marvel Universe that dared to go where no one else would. Read Full Review

    Ultimates2 may have gotten lost amidst a plethora of other titles that launched around the same time, but it will be remembered as the place where Ewing and company were given a sandbox to play around, and chose to use this space to help build a better universe. Read Full Review

    IGN - Tara Giovannini Aug 17, 2017

    How to describe Ultimates #100? It's the perfect melding of everything Ewing has been doing on the title. Since the beginning, the series has been one of the funnest, most out there cosmic comics available. Where else would superheroes be taken out of time and shown the structure of the universe?

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Aug 19, 2017

    In Ultimates2 #100, Al Ewing ties his team of Ultimates in with the original Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch in a non-awkward way and also paves the way for any alternate universe characters to return after the events of Secret Wars. Once again, he shows a rare talent for combining epic, high level plotting with characters (Including Galactus), who have genuine emotional arcs. Honestly, he should be in charge of Marvel's next blockbuster event Read Full Review

    From start to end I have enjoyed this series thoroughly. to see it end is a shame, but it no doubt will lead to more great works by Al Ewing. anyone interested in Marvel Cosmic should read this series and enjoy its quirky scope.

    ULTIMATES2 #100 was an excellent, thoroughly original and surprisingly surprising conclusion to one of Marvel's best books in recent memory. Honestly, the biggest, most pleasant surprise (for me, at least) was something that did NOT happen rather than something that did (I'll avoid spoilers here but if you don't know what I'm alluding to, the non-event is mentioned by Mr. Ewing in his afterword for the issue). I've sung the praises of Al Ewing in other reviews on this very site so I won't bore you by repeating the same things I've said many times before...with one exception: If ULTIMATES2 (and its predecessor, ULTIMATES) have not convinced the decision-makers at Marvel that Al Ewing needs to write a new FANTASTIC FOUR title, nothing will. more

    "The Ultimates" has come to an end. But while it ran, this has been one of Marvel's most original, most interesting series. The story of the "Cosmic Avengers" has had a look unlike any other book, thanks to Kenneth Rocafort and now Travel Foreman. It's too bad it's ending, but it goes out on a high note, a powerful, optimistic, life-affirming conclusion. This is, and has been, a pretty great book.

    In the end, Ewing's Ultimates had a solid payoff, and makes room for itself amongst the Marvel cosmic storylines. I felt some plot points in the last couple of issues seemed rushed, but this could have been Marvel's push for Ewing's story to end with issue #100. Overall a good ending to this story.

    I am equal parts sad and delighted by this issue. An exciting read from the first page to the last. I am depressed that a story with so much more to tell is ending, I give it an 11!

    Definitely the best book Marvel has right now, the cosmic scope is handled incredibly well, it´s a shame this is the last issue.

    I wasn’t a fan of Ewing’s Mighty Avengers. Ewing’s Captain America and the Mighty Avengers wasn’t for me. I didn’t like Ewing’s New Avengers. U.S.Avengers by Al Ewing sucked. I couldn’t even finish Ewing’s Royals and Loki: Agent of Asgard. So my expectations weren’t very high when Al Ewing started his Ultimates run but wow he knocked it out of the park. It was totally different than the rest of his comics. Ultimates and Ultimates 2 are like a mixture of Jim Starlin and Jonathan Hickman stories. By no means, though, was these two series as good as Hickman’s or Starlin’s work but it was still fantastic nonetheless. Al Ewing’s respect for continuity was always my favorite quality about him, and I always looked forward t more

    In the final victory over the First Firmament, the Ultimates and Galactus all get satisfying roles to play. There are a fair few surprise guests stepping up, too, and this issue is practically bursting at the seams with cool cosmic ideas. That strength is also a weakness, and the comic suffers from a bit of a human interest shortage. Travel Foreman's art stays in my negative column right to the end; his dreadful treatment of human-scale figures (particularly America Chavez) simply doesn't work for me.
