    I shouldn't like this, as it's clumsy and bitty and just not well put together, despite the simple structure. But my word, it's good to see the Avengers in action, kicking arse and saving lives on an epic scale, and not just sitting around chatting inanely. Bendis take note. Read Full Review

    Millar gets to have his cake and eat it too with this issue. And I dont mind, because I like it when Tony lasers enemies from outer-space as much as anyone. Read Full Review

    More than anything else, this issue of Ultimates feels like the last stages of a video game, with a bunch of big, bad guys showing up, being fought off in quite a straightforward manner, before the cackling ber-baddie shows up at the end for a final showdown. Whilst that's not necessarily a bad thing, some of the appeal of the Ultimates is lost by reducing them to a shallow team of muscle rather than the more complicated personalities that Millar has shown them to be over the past few years. Whilst my appetite has definitely been whetted for the final issue by that final splashpage (even if I don't think we'll see it this side of Christmas), there's something vaguely unsatisfying about this as a swansong for Millar and Hitch's title. Let's just hope next issue really delivers the goods. Read Full Review
