    I suppose one's enjoyment of this issue is dependent entirely on how much you enjoy the idea of a good slugfest, as that's all this issue really delivers. However, Mark Millar knows his audience, and after four issues of setup material I was more than ready to see the Ultimates in action, even if it was against one of their own. This issue is also a pretty good sampler of the team's power levels as while Giant Man & Iron Man don't come across as all that impressive, their quick defeats did act to play up the Hulk's power levels, as well as present the idea that these two are new to the idea of heated combat.

Plus, if you take nothing else away from this issue, one has to read it to see Thor get one of his best showings ever, as he lays a serious beating on the Hulk.

The beginning age composition combined with Bryan Hitch’s artstyle and Paul Mounts colors make this issue was of the superbly laid out issues I have ever scene. It most certainly feels like we’re reading a real-world, like-action Avengers movie on a comic. This fight is something to behold. Mark Millar was at his best with this issue. That being said some his dialogue can be a bit overboard with it being very socialistic. Regardless, this is one of the best issue more

    It's a brawler issue and it's done well. The art coming from Hitch has never looked better. He is a true master, throwing in great moments like Cap in a tank. The visuals feel cinematic, and with such great writing you can't help but feel taken away like any good movie.
