Ultimate X-Men #14 (Cowards, every single one of them Spoile

‘Divided We Fall’ begins, and while it’s a pretty slow start, this was still a good issue. Brian Wood continues to focus heavily on Kitty Pryde and her plan to get deep into enemy territory and start a Mutant Rebellion. I really like Wood’s voice for Kitty, you can see that she’s not sure that what she’s doing is going to work, but she knows she has to do it. I also like that the book now has a much tighter focus, Spencer’s run was a bit all over the place, but Wood is keeping it to only 4 characters, and it’s working really well. The idea of a Kitty/Jimmy romance is a good one too, the character has such a strong connection to Wolverine that it makes sense that she’d be attracted to a more age-appropriate version. Even though this issue was a little light on the explosions and fireworks you might expect from a summer event story, I do think it did a good job at getting across the tension the Ultimate Universe must be going through, the checkpoint crossing was excruciating stuff. This story is off to a good start, let’s hope that Ultimates brings the levels of shit blowing up that we demand. Maybe some more characters could be injected with Giant-Man serum?

Worst comic I read this week. Wood is just appalling.
