Reed and Sue are still fighting.
Something big hatched out of an egg and Sue goes to investigate. It follows her back to New York undetected.
Introduction of Ultimate Agatha Harkness. She's working with SHIELD and comes to investigate how the baxter program could be more efficient. She seduces Johnny.
Something big blows a hole in a building and the FF go out to investigate. They get shot out of the air by a new superteam called The Seven (or Salem's Seven).

Nobody gives a damn about this book anymore.

As in the creators/publishers/editors, or the readers?

I still like this book, even though I'm not a fan of Kirkham's art. I want Ferry back.

It was cool to see my old stomping grounds of Salem, Oregon in comic form though.

everybody.

They tried to get readers to come back to this book by letting a lesbian hit on Sue. Like Sue isnt a bland piece of eye candy enough already. Im still hoping she gets replaced by the talking russian bear.

But you seem to care enough to make a thread and mention it. If you really didn't care at all, you wouldn't have bothered making the thread.



The issue was really good, and might be out to be my favorite arc by Carey on this run yet.

It seems like i was the only one. This has been out for a week. Its bland and not even worthy of comment, even though its way better than the garbage we've been calling the UFF recently.
I didnt get into marvel comics until the Ultimate line and it pains me to see how it has been run into the ground by bad writing and HORRIBLE HORRIBLE art (im looking at you Land!!).

So yes, i do care. I'd realy like this to be the comic it could be and it pains me to see it be so much less.

Re: Ultimate Fantastic Four #54 SPOILERS

I never saw any previews for this... Where is the egg located? And does it show what kind of thing hatched from it? Or is it kept hidden?

I'm vaguely intrigued by this arc, only because I've always thought Harkness and the Salem Seven were *potentially* interesting characters to Ultimatize, and they generally play towards Carey's strength at mixing mysticism with everyday life.

WOW. I didn't know that.

I haven't read this since midway through Carey's first arc, because it was too plodding and boring. I bought a couple of TPBs but honestly I haven't cared enough to read them yet.

Oh except God War. It should have been called God Bore. ZING! See what I did there?

It hatched underground near Salem. They hook up a giant tvscreen near the eggshell that shows a blurry picture of what appears to be an eye.
We dont see the thing that hatched, but we see it following sue and commenting that she has been near the thing or person its looking for. It refers to itsself as "we" and it mentions "we have to be so many more".

Its to early to tell, but it might be Ultimate Shuma-Gorath.

She mentioned the lizard thing and my mind immideately jumped to Ultimate Fing Fang Foom... but I think Ultimate Shuma Gorath might be a better guess. I also have a feeling that Ultimate Salem Seven may be causing the problems they help. Doing stuff so they can fix it. I don't know though.
