The Ultimates #15 (Roger, Rogers Spoilers)

Even though the ‘Captain America becomes President’ plotline had been spoiled for me by the Mainstream Media, this was still a pretty crazy issue, and the ending was damn cool. The opening scene of this issue, a news report, was actually very helpful exposition, as it explained just what is going on all across America and which areas are most fucked. It was also good to see Cap liaise with Nick Fury here and link things up with X-Men, because up until now, this hasn’t seemed like a unified event at all, each Ultimate book has been off doing it’s own thing, but now it all sort of makes sense. The story with Morez continues to intrigue, now he’s stirring things up with Hydra, which is promising. I really enjoyed the action scenes in this issue once again. There have been some pretty big problems in Sam Humphries’ run so far, but he and his artists have pretty much always nailed the action stuff, every character got something to do, and it was all very well-told. Seeing Cap do so many bad-ass things made it plausible enough that he’d be voted President. I’m a bit conflicted about this storyline really, it sounds dumb, but it could be cool. Let’s just hope it lasts longer than when Iron Man was Secretary Of Defence. It’s also cool that we only have to wait a week for the next instalment, roll on #16 for the inauguration! Oh yeah, and Tony and his magic tumor are still brilliantly weird, so strange.

I guessed that he would be in charge a while ago but I thought it was gonna be a coup instead. This is a pretty damn good book.
