    Ultimates 2 #7 definitely has you feeling some sort of way about the trouble this team finds themselves in at the hands of Steve Rogers, HYDRA, and this endless horde of Chitauri. I can't say that I find myself caring for the Secret Empire plot, but this issue still managed to make me care for where the Ultimates stand being locked outside of Earth. Read Full Review

    Can we get back to the cosmic war going on outside which no species is safe from now? The team did deserve a break for all the set up they been giving us but my god, not like this… Secret Empire? Not like this, man. Read Full Review

    Ultimates #7 is an issue that can be skipped. The issue may have had much to tell but the art was not at all suited to the series and it could take away most of interest from the readers instantly. Read Full Review

    I dug the dialouge but the art threw me for a loop. Looks like Galactus is sitting this one out!!!!

    ULTIMATES2 #7: An unfortunate, forced fill-in issue. The series has, obviously, been put on hold while SECRET EMPIRE plays out. ULTIMATES2 will, likely, continue as planned when the tie-ins are over with. I'd wager that in re-reading ULTIMATES2, when all is said and done, it will read seamlessly if you skip these SECRET EMPIRE issues. All that said, Al Ewing makes the best of things this issue. It IS as well-written as ever. It is the high-quality of the writing and a nice cover that made my final score as high as it is. After all, the story is, mostly a reiteration of what we've, already, read about (several times) in SECRET EMPIRE (and elsewhere) and the low quality of the art needs no comment (in case you haven't seen it...it is BAD). I don't normally knock somebody's artwork because I can't draw any better... except, in this case, I think I could. All said...this issue was a rare low for an otherwise great series. SCORE: 5.4

    It was pretty much at the same point of "The Ultimates" run about a year ago that "Civil War II" took over the events of the comic, after a great first arc, and it remained mired in that event until it finished its run at #12. Let's hope it doesn't last so long this time, because "Secret Empire" has invaded "Ultimates 2" and delivered a pretty underwhelming issue. It's basically Carol and her corp fighting the CHitauri, who all die when they hit the shield once they get past this defense force (so what's the point?). The art is raw and might be suited to an independent project or something, but it is pretty jarring (in the worst sense of the word) here. All in all, it's pretty depressing to see what was going on in this book sacrificed to fill in the blanks of the latest spectacle. Shitty.

    Absolutely disgusting artwork. Worse than the garbage that started this run. Plus, the story is so bland. Such a terrible issue.
