The end is here! Or, is it a new beginning? The Earth is plagued by underwater volcanic eruptions, tidal waves crashing over whole cities and snowstorms burying entire countries. Who is responsible? And why?

    All-in-all, this is a great comic and an intense story. There is at least one character you can identify with, if not more. The dramatic ending will not only leave you on the edge of your seat, but also craving more. I recommend you pick up this issue at your local shop before they run out. You wont regret it.

    So far, I haven't seen much in the way of clever. It's mostly been the usual heavy-handed mass murder, which is a cheap way to get attention. Fixing the problem - now that will take some smart writing. Read Full Review

    Ultimatum #2 was a poorly crafted story. Loeb delivers this issue in such a heavy handed manner. This is an unintelligent read and I certainly would not recommend wasting your hard earned money on this title. At this point, I am just hoping that my beloved Ultimate Spider-Man manages to avoid being stained by the Ultimatum event. Read Full Review

    Im currently subscribed to this mini at my local shop, but after this issue Ive decided to stand up for my rights and cancel the remaining issues. The $3.99 can be better spent on a Marvel Universe ongoing and a soda. Read Full Review

    IGN - Bryan Joel Dec 24, 2008

    Very, very, very few redeeming qualities for the second installment of Ultimatum. I don't know if the deteriorating quality of the plot is meant to mirror the rapidly unravelling state of the Ultimate Universe, or if it's simply suffering from the same lack of editorial direction as Ultimates 3. Either way I really, really don't recommend this unless you've begun playing a self-fashioned drinking game with Loeb comics or something. Read Full Review

    If Loeb thinks he's captured the special charm of the Ultimate universe (accessible, updated, and continuity-lite versions of Marvels icons for a younger generation) he's delusional. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Zak Edwards Dec 26, 2008

    And this is not helped by David Finchs pencilling which can only be described as attempts at creating masturbation material for thirteen year old boys. As soon as the panel depicting Carol Danvers, full-length, with her massive breasts and impossibly white blonde hair, I started rolling my eyes at the art just as much as the story. Its insulting, offensive, misogynistic, and pathetic. It just adds to increasing the setbacks comic books need to get past. Read Full Review
