    Ultimatum #5 was just a horrible end to one of the worst events I have ever read, if not the worst.

The good thing is that this event is now finished and we can start over with the relaunch of the Ultimate Universe titles in the form of Ultimate Comics in a few weeks. Read Full Review

    But this series was a hell of a way to get to that point, and it will take a while before its stench of sad desperation disappears from the Ultimate comics that follow. Read Full Review
