The Ultimates #6 (Extinction Spiral Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Wed Feb 01, 2012 9:36 am

I bloody love Jamie Braddock as the new Ultimate Captain Britain, he’s only been in a few scenes so far, but he seems to be a very complex character, and not at all like his brother. The scenes with him were the highlight of this issue, which was, much like #5 an instalment more concerned with small character movements than big explosions like the first 4. We see Nick attempting to get Captain America to come back, and of course, Cap says no. I did like that Nick really only wanted him back for the symbolism, Ultimate Cap is, unlike his 616 counterpart, no strategist and it was cool to see that recognised. The Tony Stark stuff was interesting too, I can’t believe he’s going along with what Kratos is doing, that’s going to blow back in his face for sure. And when did Nick Fury and Black Widow II get back together? Is that baby Ultimate Marcus Johnson? Brandon Peterson and Esad Ribic did a good job on art, but these last two issues have moved a little too slowly, maybe they should just drop the Hulk onto The City?

I read the 3-issues-in-one collection they put out of 1-3--and I would totally buy more books in that format, incidentally--and was not that impressed. Cap was still AWOL though.
