    I'm honestly surprised I liked this issue. I loathed Millar's Civil War since issue one, and I never expected to see a political comic by the same writer to actually be good. Yet this was an over the top, fun comic. The action, the comedy, it all works. Hitch provides art that fits each scene rather well, and while the Thor as a god revelation falls flat, the team manages to wrap up its plot threads rather well. I just hope the creative team behind Ultimates 3 can keep up the gritty, political feel that Millar and Hitch included. Read Full Review

    My hope is that Jeph Loeb can save the Ultimate universe. I really have enjoyed everything Ultimate that Marvel has put out, and right now Ultimate Spider-Man seems to be the only consistent series of the imprint. The Ultimate Avengers should be the flagship title of the Ultimate universe and should change the status quo of Marvels ultimate experiment. They should look at the Ultimate universe and the Ultimate Avengers not as a way to streamline continuity, but as a way to provide a newer, edgier and more modern take on these classic heroes. Delays or not, Mark Millar has laid the groundwork for the Ultimate universe to maintain its edge and its originality. I hope Loeb and Bendis take advantage of what Millar has created.

    Wallace: I know, it's an odd feeling. I've loved Ultimates from the first issue all the way up to the point at which New York was crushed by the "Liberators" a few chapters ago, but something's happened since then. Maybe this will read better in the inevitable hardcover collection without months and months of waiting between issues, but for now, it feels like a little of the magic has gone. Read Full Review
