    Loeb seems willing to explain the inconsistencies between this series and the previous ones, and Joe Mad is attacking these pages with ferocity, but it's not enough to make this series very good. It makes something like "Countdown: Arena" seem like a complex exploration of the superhero genre in comparison. Read Full Review

    Does the phrase jump the shark mean anything to you? Because if this were season three of a TV show, that is exactly what I would be saying. Read Full Review

    There are two kinds of bad comics: the kind that must've sounded like a good idea when it was pitched but somehow faltered, and then the kind that is, was, and always will be so fundamentally flawed at its core that whoever green-lighted it had to have been kidding. Four-fifths of the way through, I'm reasonably certain I know which camp Ultimates 3 falls into. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Jun 30, 2008

    I have no idea where this book is going anymore. And to think it's going to wrap up next issue is just unthinkable. The only thing I can make a wager on is that it's going to say, “To be continued in Ultimatum” at the end of issue #5. There's just too many subplots and dangling threads (that have been randomly conjured up, no less) to be wrapped up in another 22 pages of story. This series has done nothing but sullen The Ultimates brand and lower the integrity of the creative team. Joe Mad's art is the only reason why people are buying this turd, because the story is a convoluted mess and the coloring is still too dark. Why he would want to be associated with a piece of garbage like this is beyond me. At least with Hulk, I know that Jeph Loeb is purposely writing a bad story for the hell of it. Here, there's just no excuse. Even the cover sucks. Read Full Review
