The Ultimates #5 (Invisible Rabbit Spoilers)

Yay! Ultimate Falcon is back! I love that guy. This issue was kind of a pause from the breakneck speed of the first arc, and it was necessary. We catch up with all of our characters with some great scenes as they contemplate on recent events. I continue to really like Hickman’s take on Tony Stark. I often rag on the guy for not being able to write characters, but in this book he’s demonstrating he can. And there was humour too! Volstagg’s ‘I farted’ line was classic. It was also cool how this book caught us up with events in the other Ultimate books, so we saw Hawkeye give a briefing on the events of his own mini-series, and we sort of got to see the debut of the Ultimate Runaways. We also get to see Spider-Woman discover the existence of Miles Morales, which is kind of odd timing since we saw their fight last week in Ultimate Spider-Man #5, but it worked well and really emphasised how close all the writers are trying to make the Ultimate Universe at the moment. I was disappointed that Ribic only did 4 or so pages here, but Brandon Peterson was a good fill-in, and it was great to see him go back to his old, non-computerised style. Oh yeah, and Captain America is back too, I told you he would be.
