Man, the Ultimate Universe kind of has it in for the US Government doesn’t it? First it turns on the Ultimates and then gets blown up, then it gives up on like 5 states and surrenders them to a bunch of robots. Shame on you Washington! This was an OK issue, but once again it focussed too much on the big threat than on the heroes, when was the last time we saw Jimmy Hudson? Like 4 issues ago or something, there’s not enough X-Men in this book. That said, it’s all set-up for a massive finale to Spencer’s run next month, and then hopefully Brian Wood’s run will focus a bit more on the characters. I am wondering if this story arc will just end with the X-Men ending up in Washington and getting blown up thanks to the events in Ultimates, but that would probably be too dark.

Continuity all over the place if the Obama stand in is still President, what with being Dead in the Ultimates book.
I care less about this book since Spencer made it clear his Image stuff was more important than his Marvel work, and with Wood coming on to make the book "Ultimate Lefty Politics", I'm fairly certain the next issue will be my last.
