The Ultimates #10 (Next in line Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Fri May 11, 2012 1:50 pm

This was another excellent issue of Ultimates, and I really liked that it dropped the more esoteric semi-cosmic stuff with The City and The Children and whatever, and instead focussed on the immediate characters in danger, and also the crazy situation that spins out of Reed Richards blowing up The White House and the rest of Capitol Hill. We saw the real human impact, not just in the excellent pages which showed what some people were doing right before they were disintegrated, but also in the shock of the man who had just become President. The stuff with the Ultimates themselves was also excellent, having the tables turned and them being on the run from SHIELD is a lot of fun and Nick Fury was a total bad-ass in that scene. Bringing back Tony Stark’s tumor was a good development too, and it was interesting how it manifested itself, with him talking to himself as a child. I wonder if this improved focus on character was down to the introduction of Sam Humphries as co-writer? I’m not familiar with his work, but the more down-to-Earth feel here wasn’t very Hickman-like. I was glad also to see a member of the Fantastic Four other than Reed finally show up, it makes sense that with Reed as a villain that the others should be involved, but Sue and Ben have been nowhere to be seen (Johnny is over in Ultimate X-Men). And then at the end… Christ, I’d almost forgotten about Thor’s kid being trapped in a tree, so much stuff has happened in this book.
