Don't expect me to take you with me when I go to s
I tried to count the number of exclamation marks in this issue. There are too many.
This isn't watchmen and it never will be. It's a fun series about a teenager who accidentally gets super powers and has to learn to juggle the responsibility of his powers with the normal teenage drama of his daily life.A bad guy wins in the end. How is that not interesting at all?
In this case it is.It didn't make Secret Invasion interesting.
Hell of a comparison. Watchmen isn't the only story that can have a bad guy winning. It might have been the only one you think it did it right, but that doesn't mean it's the only story that deserves to do that.This isn't watchmen and it never will be. It's a fun series about a teenager who accidentally gets super powers and has to learn to juggle the responsibility of his powers with the normal teenage drama of his daily life.
It's fine you think that, but I have no problem with this ending. I like it and look forward to how things go on from here.It should not end with his arch-enemy smiling because he finally killed him. I wouldn't call Ultimate Spider-man a lightharted series, but it certainly shouldn't have such a dark end. Make Peter lose his powers or hang up his cape, fine. But don't end it like this.
For the first time in a long time, I disagree.Now they just need to kill the rest of the ultimate universe and end this horrible nightmare.
Agreed whole-heartedly.For the first time in a long time, I disagree.
About 2-3 years ago, at the height of Ultimates 3, Ultimate Power, Ultimatum, etc, I would've agreed whole-heartedly.
But now, after the promising Ultimate Thor mini, the decent Ultimate Cap mini, Hickman's upcoming Ultimates, and this incredibly ballsy move of killing off Ult. Peter Parker...I think the Ultimate universe is FINALLY coming into its own. By that I mean we finally have a universe that doesn't just seem like a slightly altered rendition of the 616 universe...now its a Marvel universe without a Wolverine or Peter Parker as Spider-Man...no Profesor X or Magneto, mutants are outlawed, a world where New York was just about wiped off the map (of course they under-utilized the hell out of the flood Ultimatum brought).
There's a lot to now differentiate the two universes, and I think the Ultimate verse is now justifiably standing on its own two feet for the first time since the Ultimates 2 era.
There's still a ways to go, but they're heading in the right direction.
Hell, even Ultimate X is a decent read, and thats the only remaining Loeb-penned Ultimate title.
