    Okayyyyy...Interesting set up in the latest issues of the other Ultimate titles (save for Ultimates 3) but this seemed a bit...um...QUICK. It's practically the opposite of All Hail Megatron in it's pacing.

    Spoilers











    So many deaths so fast....like reading the Underbase Saga again. Total Furmanation.

    The beginning of the end for the ultimate universe...it lasted 8 years, which I guess was good enough.

    Kinda removes a lot of the wow factor since we know the Ultimate Spider-Man title makes it through and there's the Ultimate Avengers coming soon too. All with post Ultimatum stories. Also, since the Ultimate Phoenix can resurrect people it's kind of silly.

    I read it in store today, trying to keep an open mind. Loeb used to be one of my favorite writers.

    Then I read Johnny Storm say "You don't get me Dad! And you never will!"

    .....ow.

    I'm sorry, whatever hope I had for this story went down the tolit because of the horrible, horrible dialogue. Iron Man telling Cap about booze for no apparent reason, Thor talking like his 616 counterpart....ow. Just ow.

    Also, why is Magneto sunndely dressed like 6i6 Magneto?

    Does Loeb not understand the concept of the Ultimate universe?

    Magneto has been wearing a variation of that suit since the Magnetic North arc of Ultimate X-Men.

    And the rest has been there since Ultimates Vol. 3. : /
