I didn't know where to put this because it's all about the new universe so i made a new topic.

First things first, i was a little behind on the Ultimate Universe as i was reading it through in order using DIrishB's timeline, thanks again. So today i read the new issues of the new series, and well, let's say i love them!

Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man is the best so far and im really enjoying the new supporting cast and how they fit in. Bendis is fantastic at writing this dynamic between characters. When the action comes out, i miss reading on the characters everyday lives. I wish they were two seperate series. An Ultimate Comics: Amazing Friends series which would just be about the characters, no villians, little pwers etc and then an Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man would carry on the dynamic but would include the villains and powers etc. That idea is a little silly, but if done right it could work. I don't know.

Ultimate Comics: Avengers is also great. I like the story so far and Millar knows how to write the characters we like. I want to see where this story build up is going to take us.

Ultimate Comics: Armor Wars is fantastic. The good thing about this is that it's a simple plot. (someone steals Starks Iron Man designs etc) but it is done in a complex way.

The only thing that bugs me the most is continuity. I read somewhere that they were going to keep the continuity tight and will be all intertwined. However they are sets months apart. Oh well.


Oh and P.S Lafuente is the best artist Ultimate Spider-Man has seen. I love his Mary Jane!

At least bagley drew her hot, now she looks like loli . Blergh :(
I love everything about Llafuente's art, except his characters. When I want to read USM, I want to read a comic book, not a manga :?

Ultimate Spider-Man is pretty good again. Its refreshing. Lafuente's art is growing on me, though I agree with vmenge that his characters are a bit ridiculous looking and too manga-ish.

Ultimate Avengers is awesome. Some complain there hasn't been much story and its been mostly set-up, which I agree with, but I believe its building to a worthy climax and reveal (Kang as Greg), and I think there's more he's building to. I also hope there's a running plot-line or lines which spread over the entire series and climax in the final issues.

Ultimate Armor Wars is pretty good fun, too, and I loved the MODOK thing. Interested to see how it wraps up.

I'm also interested to see where the Ultimate Enemy trilogy goes. I'm not expecting a whole lot, I'm just hoping its more in line with Ultimate Gah Lak Tus in terms of tone, threat level, and approach--as opposed to say, oh, Ultimate Power. Unfortunately, Bendis was the launchboard for Ultimate Power, so...



So, I think the quality of the Ultimate verse has most definitly improved versus a year ago. Or two years ago...or three.

But its good now, and I'm finally satisfied (however minorly) with the verse again.

So. Optimistic.
