It's coming out this week and I'm pretty unfamiliar with it. It's got the "Ultimate" label so I'll be getting it. Can someone tell me a little bit about it? Should I take it seriously?

I may get it. I want to collect the whole Ultimate universe.

Agreed and seconded. It was a fun story, with a few parts that were a little out there, but all in all it was a good read and I would recommend it.

Good idea picking Hawk-Owl for Fury's team - I hadn't thought of that.

It really depends.

If you're willing to accept it for something that just HAPPENS to be tangentially related to the Ultimate universe, then I'm sure you can enjoy it. Looking past its superficial trappings, which often lead people to assume its just a simple minded Batman parody, you'll enjoy a genuinely solid and quirky tale which also happens to feature the oddest supervillain origin story.

Its basically about how a stubbornly defiant orphan boy gets taken under the wing of the most thoughtless billionaire in Chicago, who also happens to be the strangest crusader of the night: Hawk-Owl!

Honestly, I liked the series, which to my mind, is not really an Ultimate book so much as it is some quirky little side project by Ron Zimmerman with art by Duncan Fegredo (better known for work on Clerks comics, and lesser known for his work with Pete Milligan on Face).

So it's all good xept for the name of the hero?
Yup, that, and how outrageous the main villain's gimmick is. But I won't discuss/spoil THAT, until more people have begun to discuss the story itself. :p

I propose banning discussion of the story/plot until the trades released.Any seconds?

I know it doesn't make much sense considering it was already a mini but a lotta ppl ain't read it.

How about a show of hands on who actually read it. That's you, me and compound, and who else? I dont think it's going to be difficult since there're so few of us around to actually discuss it now.

In this thread, anyway, since it is not marked for spoilers. Motion carried. :D

And yes, I've read it too.

I picked up the six issues awhile back, and its an interesting mini. I wasn't blown away or super-impressed by it, but its decent. If you're an Ultimate completist, its a must-have.

This is a good , solid read. It pretty much is Ultimate Batman, just less dark with a goofy Batman, Robin and Joker. Definetly for the Ultimate completist. (I got it when it came out since I had this desire to have the entire Ultimate U. It's nice when you have the COMPLETE story. :D )
