    Ultimates 2 #5 is where things get serious. The creation of Logos was mad enough, but this being pulling the strings of discord challenges how impossible a task can be. But who if not the Ultimates to charge head first into the impossible? I feel like this is the roof and they are going to blow it wide open with what is unleashed and what will be given back in response. Read Full Review

    Another good issue overall in the series, with few problems in the art department. Finally, the gears are kicked in as we head to the core part of the series. Not much to add without spoiling the entire issue. Read Full Review

    The worst issue of this volume. Multiversal collapse never felt so dull. Read Full Review

    I love ULTIMATES2 and issue #5 was another example why. If only Travel Foreman would work to his potential ..

    Things stay trippy as the cosmic wars continue here. An enjoyable issue; also, it looks like Travel Foreman is rounding into shape.

    Terrible drop in art. Uninspired choreography of events. But there is so much solid content to this still. This book is still foremost title in shaping the new MU.

    The Ultimates whomp the Troubleshooters, then get blindsided by the last-minute appearance of the real Big Bad: The First Firmament. I've decided that Travel Foreman's competent-at-best cosmic illustrations in no way excuse the absolute hash he makes of rendering human people. This issue's human-action-heavy script is Kryptonite to him. Al Ewing's writing is for once lacking in silver linings. There's nice dialogue and the characterization is decent, but the plot is a hopeless mess. I *hate* the "introduce a villain and call it a cliffhanger" move, and this straightforward example shows off all its drawbacks.

    Let's be simple and clear: Ultimates2 #5 SUCKS. The plotting is bad. The writing is bad. The art is bad. Ultimates2 #5 seems to epitomize the new Marvel. The dialogue is either generic or just plain awful. Once again, Marvel has produced a comic book that in addition to being bad is also boring. As I sit and read, I find myself FORCING myself to turn the page.

    Why am I still reading this garbage? Because Marvel is forcing me to read this garbage. What happens in this terrible excuse for a comic book impacts every other Marvel character and title.

    When Black Panther says, "We fight over nothing." He's RIGHT! There's nothing to fight over. When he dodges the 'tranquiler machine pistols' (that has got to be one of the ST more
