Thank god for the Hulk
I guess they brought the Hulk back bc they can't finish the Ult Hulk vs Wolverine series....
I was just going to saw, "would be nice if they finished the Hulk/Wolverine series"
Anyway, Iwas kind of disappointed i nthe issue. Nice to see evryone come back together which was necessary for next issue's slugfest but 'yawn'. I want to see Iron Man v6.
Wait, they "can't" finish the Hulk Wolverine story? Sarcasm because it's so late...? I hope so.
Here's what I thought of it:
Basically, it's a good book, but the wait between issues is so long I lose interest.
Unfortunately, I agree. Fun issue, on the surface, but when you look closer, it's apparent that not really that much has happened. Millar could have easily trimmed the fat from this issue's story and squeezed in something more important.
The Hulk coming back is nice, especially since it obviously ties into Ultimate Hulk/Wolverine. I liked that series to begin with, and even moreso now.
Hopefully, the next issue (which I anticipate in September) is more interesting, or at least has more happening.
Theoretically it should be since it was originally supposed to be the last issue, and they just added a 13th issue as an epilogue.
Could have sworn I saw an Ultimate Hulk/Wolverine TPB at the comic shop a while back.
That was the Ultimate Wolverine vs Hulk Director's Cut released last month (May 3rd). It only had issues 1 and 2 though.
I was being sarcastic, but I could be wrong. All I know is, there's nothing scheduled for #3. Worse than Ultimates. At least they give SOME date when the next issue's gonna be.
I liked this issue, but the wait is killing me. Its a hard series to follow. I've totally forgotten whats been going on. I had to go reread all my old issues to get caught back up. I mean. am I the only one who is just NOW figuring out that the red skull colonel guy was the middle eastern kid cap was pushing around in some of the earlier issues.
I just don't care about it any more.
But the Hulk is fun. Hulk smash etc.
How long exactly has volume 2 been going, 3 or 4 years? I honestly cannot remember when I started reading this thing.
V2 started in December 2004 so it's not like it's been THAT bad in terms of shipping.
Ultimates 2 #1 was released December 1, 2004, so it's been about a year and a half.
The storyline is good but the slow/late releases of the comics really killed the series for me! Bah! Like some of you guys, I had to go back to the back issues to recall what was going on.
I was really, really hoping for something big to happen in here. And while I thought the semi proof that Thor is a god, and the return of the Hulk were great, that's three pages, the rest basically happened in the last issue.
And seeing the X-Men, FF and Spider-Man in cuffs? Bullshit.
I finally got a chance to read this issue today and its interesting to see how Bruce Banner is finally controlling the Hulk - something that even the 616 Banner has failed to do properly. One can see how the he's going to join the Avengers in the next story arc...
Anyway, I'm so looking forward to the final issue of this series just to see the Hulk kicking all kind of butt!
I just want to see a throw down between the abomination, and the hulk.
