    This sweeping epic delivers big and I do mean big with awesome artwork in an 800 plus page hardcover volume that could be used as serious weapon against your enemies.The tale is one of a reimaginings in which the heroes work for the U.S Government with some notable changes Thor is either a ridiculed Messiah or insane and the Hulk is considered a menace to the point that the Avengers contain him and even consider executing him There is no superhero alliance as already stated above which me This sweeping epic delivers big and I do mean big with awesome artwork in an 800 plus page hardcover volume that could be used as serious weapon against your enemies.The tale is one of a reimaginings in which the heroes work for the U.S Government with some notable changes Thor is either a ridiculed Messiah or insane and the Hulk is considered a menace to the point that the Avengers contain him and even consider executing him There is no superhero alliance as already stated above which means the heroes all work for SHIELD under Nick Fury who looks almost exactly like Samuel Jackson and that thus means they re all answering to the President and his staff In the first volume the heroes deal with obstacles that only the group can handle and in the second volume the war on terror prompts a mastermind villain the means of creating superheroes from countries that hate America This leads to a serious assault upon the USA which stands to wipe out the whole lot of The Avengers and enslave America Expect strong adult themes in this one, especially spousal abuse, so if that bothers you then you have been warned There are some definite themes within of the last Superpower imposing its influence on resentful Third World Developing Countries and the backlash which can result Did I say the artwork is absolutely amazing A big volume helps with the viewing but still you have to check it out By the way, this was written by Mark Millar and the artwork is by a number of people Bryan Hitch, Paul Mounts, Andrew Currie and several others The first volume of Ultimates 1 ranked fourth among the top 300 comics sold for February 2002, based on Diamond Publisher s indexes, with the next three issues ranked second, second, and third, respectively Wiki source This volume had a number of spinoffs like two novels and such and was an inspiration for the movie The Avengers.Collects Ultimates 1 13, Ultimates 2 1 13, Ultimates Annual 1, and Ultimates 2 1 Variant Sketch Edition There s a partial script, developing artwork, cover artwork and some other pieces in back I found the follow ups to the first two to be anti climatic so my grade doesn t apply so much to them ARTWORK PRESENTATION A to A plus CHARACTERS DIALOGUE B plus to A minus FOCUSES THEMES OF TODAY COMPARISONS B to B plus ACTION SCENES A minus to A STORY PLOTTING B plus to A minus WHEN READ September 2012 OVERALL GRADE A minus view spoiler SPOILERS It was a nice touch in Captain America returning and finding his love and Bucky were both alive but super old and married to one another Cap then tried to have a relationship with a younger superheroine and of course they had problems because of their massive generation gap Thought provoking section in which people in the Third World who are wronged and bitter are turned into Metahumans against the heroes.I like how the Avengers almost got wiped out in both Rarely do I see a winning team beat almost to a bloody pulp I would imagine plastic surgery was available thereafter Heh.Thor was believable as a neo hippy who made some strong arguments that corporations were running and infecting the country Needles to say there was a nod to the Occupy Wall Street crowd hide spoiler

    I m giving this omnibus 5 stars for Ultimates 2 alone.While Ultimates 1 was good superhero storytelling eventually, the character building got a little tedious for me Seemed like whole issues would go by without anything major happening besides some soap opera relationship twists, and it just didn t do it for me The early super heroing was a little flat, as well, with stuff I ve seen a thousand times, only this time it s the Ultimate universe which I think was supposed to make it feel fresh.A I m giving this omnibus 5 stars for Ultimates 2 alone.While Ultimates 1 was good superhero storytelling eventually, the character building got a little tedious for me Seemed like whole issues would go by without anything major happening besides some soap opera relationship twists, and it just didn t do it for me The early super heroing was a little flat, as well, with stuff I ve seen a thousand times, only this time it s the Ultimate universe which I think was supposed to make it feel fresh.A little over halfway through the first arc, though, it starts picking up, and by the end it s turned into a really tense, blockbuster action comic full of great writing.But then we get to Ultimates 2 With all the character drama firmly left in place, this arc just barrels forward at full speed Millar does a fantastic job leaving plot elements unclear without feeling cheap, keeping you on the edge of your seat the entire time It s great subterfuge stoytelling, and I had no idea who to trust as the walls continually crashed down.And the finale Good lord can Bryan Hitch draw There s so much detail in every panel that I felt like I was reading a movie with perfect mise en scene I can only hope the Avengers movie is anywhere close to this good

    People warned me not to read this, and they were right.AU version of the Marvel universe of interest only if you like ensembles of assholes The only really likeable one is Thor, here reconfigured as a Jesus figure sent down by his father Odin to preach against the military industrial complex and bring peace to the earth Even for superhero comics, that seems like a re envisioning of Norse mythology which is bizarrely contrary to the original text.Sordid and depressing.Oh, and the only two women People warned me not to read this, and they were right.AU version of the Marvel universe of interest only if you like ensembles of assholes The only really likeable one is Thor, here reconfigured as a Jesus figure sent down by his father Odin to preach against the military industrial complex and bring peace to the earth Even for superhero comics, that seems like a re envisioning of Norse mythology which is bizarrely contrary to the original text.Sordid and depressing.Oh, and the only two women on the team are a self hating spoiled rich girl who goes back to her abusive ex husband, and a traitor.I only wish I could give this negative stars

    I give this somewhere in the 3.5 range I feel strange ranking this so low, because this will certainly stick around in my mind, as I ve already been mulling over it for a couple of days This is essentially an alternate reality Avengers, for those who don t know what it is This omnibus was a huge set of ups and downs for me I particularly found the second half of the omnibus to be much better than the first, and the beginning section where they introduce everyone was not nearly as good as whe I give this somewhere in the 3.5 range I feel strange ranking this so low, because this will certainly stick around in my mind, as I ve already been mulling over it for a couple of days This is essentially an alternate reality Avengers, for those who don t know what it is This omnibus was a huge set of ups and downs for me I particularly found the second half of the omnibus to be much better than the first, and the beginning section where they introduce everyone was not nearly as good as when the action began for me Here are a few of my thoughts 1 Characters As other reviews have said, it is absolutely true that every character in this collection is an ass, but your own preference on whether you preface that with bad or jack My reactions were a bit of both Let me submit that this actually made me like Thor for the first time, really Iron Man is his typical awesomeness Captain America seemed a bit off to me for reasons I haven t yet put my finger on, however I definitely did not like him with The Wasp I absolutely deplored how they handled Bruce Banner As my husband stated, it seems like modern writers don t seem to truly understand how to make the Hulk angry In this he is not only ugly and wimpy, but The Hulk isin a nerd rage than it is true justified anger, and Banner just is not a nice guy Also, he threatens to rape women, which isn t okay in my book, even if it fits.2 Plot items Overall I enjoyed the plot, but I found the scene with Ant Man and the Wasp really unsettling Again, I m not sure that really needed to be shown Some of the ending was a bit deus ex machina, but that was to be expected.3 Humor There were a great many moments where I laughed out loud and panels that were so completely outrageous and awesome that I ll remember forever That said, there were a lot of jokes that frankly were simply not that funny surrounding them They were attempting to be culturally relevant, which meant many pop culture jokes, most of which fell flat

    I started out this one not really knowing or caring much about the characters within I just wanted to learnabout some Marvel classics to tide me over forMarvel vs Capcom 3 news But I was pleasantly surprised by what I found Anyone who can take a character and make you hate him as much as Millar does to Hank Pym, and then by the end of the run turn around and almost redeem him is a good writer, that much is for sure Bryan Hitch s art was well done, and I can see why Millar and Hi I started out this one not really knowing or caring much about the characters within I just wanted to learnabout some Marvel classics to tide me over forMarvel vs Capcom 3 news But I was pleasantly surprised by what I found Anyone who can take a character and make you hate him as much as Millar does to Hank Pym, and then by the end of the run turn around and almost redeem him is a good writer, that much is for sure Bryan Hitch s art was well done, and I can see why Millar and Hitch were a good match.I do admit that I liked the first run better than the second, just because the second seemed to want to do too much The first wassimplistic, andfocused on the characters and that made itreadable, I found.Unfortunately, I still don t care too much for Captain America or Fury or Iron Man Their characters just are too flat for me to really get behind But I was surprised by Thor I didn t think that I would like him, when I really found his Is He Crazy arc to be really well done And I have a new found respect for Bruce Banner His trial might be the best thing that ever happened to The Hulk And as I hinted at before, Jan and Hank were my favorite characters to follow, definitely.Overall, I m glad that I read this one but I m very blah about it too There were parts that I could not put down, but there were also parts that I thought went on too long

    Just about perfect Millar and Hitch re imagine the Avengers in the modern era and avoid re treading old adventures in the process Characters are familiar enough to keep fans engaged, but who they are and what they represent have been refreshed through a modern lens The results are two cinematic, year long arcs that set the bar high and then effortlessly leap right over them.

    This is arguably the best Superhero Action book of the last decade and IMO, The best work Mark Millar has produced.

    I am always impressed with the kind of storytelling you can add into a superhero arc Insanity, abuse, and mass murder is quite a somber arc for people saving the world dressed in costumes.Years ago, I had picked this up to getacquainted with some of Marvel s heroes I ve always been an X Men and Daredevil fan, but I knew next to nothing about Iron Man, Captain America, or really any of this core team It s really interesting, years after the fact, to see how many story beats from The Ulti I am always impressed with the kind of storytelling you can add into a superhero arc Insanity, abuse, and mass murder is quite a somber arc for people saving the world dressed in costumes.Years ago, I had picked this up to getacquainted with some of Marvel s heroes I ve always been an X Men and Daredevil fan, but I knew next to nothing about Iron Man, Captain America, or really any of this core team It s really interesting, years after the fact, to see how many story beats from The Ultimates got picked up in the current MCU.Unfortunately, some of my favorite story arcs will never make it to the big screen, because this series gets dark I love the Trial of Hulk, and it has remained one of my favorite stories for him I also really like pretty much anything involving Jan and Hank who have snuck into my list of favorite Marvel characters because of this book
