Ultimate X-Men #16 (Taking a chance Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Sep 15, 2012 12:10 pm

Brian Wood’s run on Ultimate X-Men continues to be very interesting, especially in terms of the character growth of Kitty Pryde, who has become one bad-ass motherfucker. She and Nick Fury took down two sentinels! That was hardcore. I’m still not really buying that the contemporary Ultimate Universe would go so ‘Days Of Future Past’ so quickly, but Wood keeps the story interesting enough that I’m not really questioning it. Nick Fury’s role here is interesting, he seems to be letting Kitty lead, but knowing the manipulative bastard like we do, I bet there’s something more. But the main thing here is Kitty, her growth is yet another indication of the strength of the Ultimate Universe, the characters are allowed to change a lot more than their 616 counterparts. I mean, the modern Kitty is not a stupid kid anymore, but she’s not a guntoting militia leader either. It was also cool to see the debut of a character I assume is Quentin Quire, who is awesome in any reality, although Rogue was awfully quick to make out with him. But then this is a time of war after all, no time to be coy. My only real complaint apart from the aforementioned DOFPism, is the continued lack of stuff for Jimmy Hudson to do, come on, he’s Kid Wolverine! He should be awesome! Has he even worn the costume they had him wearing on the early covers? Let him snikt some folks!
