    Foreman and Ewing have transformed this new universe using old characters, as well as linked in America Chavez's current story in her own series. Ewing is having these characters getting prepared for his phase three, which is a cosmic-level war. Listen, Ultimates 2 makes me so angry because way more people should be talking about this series. This is Oscar-level script writing we're getting here, people. Read Full Review

    The Ultimates may have been the the best team book Marvel put out after Secret Wars and, as such, I was pretty upset when event beurocracy led to an issue #1 reset and artist shuffle after Civil War II. While I refuse to call any artist's work "bad", Foreman just hasn't been able to fill Rocafort's shoes. And, while Ewing's story remains as engrossing as ever, the book has suffered.

    This issue, however, is a step in the right direction for one of my favorite books. Foreman's previously haphazard layouts are tight and orderly. His line work, which typically alternates between bland simplicity and sloppy complexity, settles into a happy medium that far more effectively brings life to the characters and setting. And, as always, Ewin more

    This was a really great issue, as we uncover the, uh, secret origin of the Marvel cosmic universe. Universes. Yeah. Al Ewing's story is great and Travel Foreman seems to be getting better with each issue, and did a great job here, even with the scope of things expanding. This first arc was a hit for me, and I'm looking forward to next issue where...Secret Empire? Aw fuck.

    Interesting story. Weak writing and art.

    The Ultimates + Troubleshooters turn back the First Firmament's attack and rescue Galactus, but the war is far from over. This mega cool conclusion makes up for a lot of the previous issues' weaknesses. The plot is all strong stuff, no filler, and there's a lot of superb action together with some intriguing cosmic background. Travel Foreman is in his element when the script hands him stuff like wars between good and evil Celestials; the visuals take a turn towards the less impressive once the Ultimates drag the conflict back to the human scale. But a few artistic quibbles can't drag down the brilliance of the script here. Al Ewing even earns some bonus credit by retroactively patching another CW II plot hole.
