Linework looks good as always. Nice enough that I'd be willing to pony up for a B/W inked TPB, in line with what they did with the Alan Moore Swamp Thing Vertigo Essentials a few years ago.

Still no clue who the new Ultiamtes team will be, but I think I'd rather have someone whos going to continue what Hitllar is doing, instead of going into a totaly diffrent direction.

Ok, not read the interview yet, just looked at the pictures.

Chin Strap?!

Oh, yes, it's a
fake Cap
indeed...

If I didn't think that it'd get bogged down in semantics of the term "guessing the exact plot" I'd bet Millar $100 to his favorite charity that someone HAS guessed in the MW threads. Because I think the true plot is twisty and complicated and we've gotten PARTS of it but not all, and judging if someone "got" the plot, based on all the pieces, would be difficult. Gah. Is it Sept 21st yet?

or it's
Captain Britain. (Bass is gonna kill me)

I'm gonna re-read the issues tomorrow, look for key events, words that may seem out of place. The answer shall present itself.

Man, so sick of guessing.

I was talking to Ice about this, and it's kinda funny, because I'm tired of caring who the traitor is. I DO care, and I can't seem to STOP caring, I'm just tired of it. And I DO think that Millar has dropped the hints - the problem is there are so MANY hints dropped that it makes me want to scream, hence all the caps in this post.

That's just it, it's like when you go to the men's room and you can't piss. You still need a piss, but you don't want to need a piss because then you could just go back and sit down. So you're there waiting to piss and people are coming in and out and it's just so annoying.

God that's a good analogy.

Except, of course, for those of us that are female...

I totally called an imposter Captain! I don't know if these pages are ACTUALLY implying that, but it certainly looks like it. I thought that Leiberman character would put on the suit and take on America because the serum destroyed his sanity... He died, so that idea was thrown out the window, but an imposter Cap'n is certainly an option now that we've got these images! :) Cool.

Chin strap....hmmmm. That was.....unexpected.

I always thought it was funny that the day after Bass posted the greatly awesome Traitor Manifesto, Mark posted in his boards "revealing" all the "previous" "appearances" of "Loki". :D

Yeap, looks like Bucky. As for the other person being the traitor, who knows. The Cap talking to Bucky could be a "fake" or something...

I'm telling you, after seeing the cover for this issue and the cover of next issue. . .it's Ultimates Dissasembled.

And I honestly STILL have no idea who the Traitor is.

Is it not possible that the scene with Bucky ends, and another scene starts with Cap in costume? Don't forget, there are no words or anything. Of course, it seems odd to start a new scene on the last panel of a page, but it's possible.
