Re: How Do You Rate Millar's Ultimate Fantastic Four Run (UFF Annual #1/ UFF#21 - #32)
Overall, I really liked it, but there were things that annoyed me. His last four arcs all helped build up his last arc, but there were things that annoyed me about them. The Skrull arc proved the Doom didn't cause the accident, but the time travel just got weird and stupid. The Namor arc established how Doom learned magic and the Mrs. Storm was working for Doom, but Namor himself was stupid. Crossover was probably the best of the bunch, and I don't really have any complaints about.
It was a well structured run that tied together nicely, but there were a lot holes that didn't need to be there.
Whole thing was just sorta mehh to me. While I realize that the entire premise of the Ultimate Universe requires them to draw from 616, I think these could have easily been drawn with the 616 Fantastic Four and sold as one of Marvel's titles for that line. There wasn't really any regard for what had been laid out to make the UFF different from the 616FF, and all the magic stuff just ruined the more scientific approach previous authors have taken.
