Ultimates #2

Postby xaraan » Wed Sep 28, 2011 12:20 pm

Anybody else reading this series?

I'm really enjoying it myself, reminds me of the Authority, Planetary and early Ultimates stuff so it's right up my alley.

Liking what happened with the gods and the boy, looking forward to what they will do with all that has happened.

I really liked this issue, so much moreso than the first issue. The battle at Asgard was sufficiently grand and I'm curious to see what the new status quo for the remaining Asgardians will be.

Very nicely done, Mr. Hickman.

Only Hickman would use the same characters as Heroes in one book, and Villains in the other, and get away with it.

Hopefully its better then Issue 1. I'll read it a bit later. Issue 1 was good but the key parts were just missing.

Well they were there they just didnt make sense. The asgardians were fighting with the EU douchers and then that dome appeared and they fought the dome? The problem was there was no dialogue.

This was good, as much as I disliked this week’s FF, I loved this one. That’s how polarising Hickman has become, even the same person both likes and hates him. The thing I liked most about this issue was the action, Esad Ribic drew his ass off and everything looked amazing. Widescreen and epic and amazing, Hickman is really showing why these versions of the characters are the inspiration for the movies. The stuff with the Children evolving was a little poncey, but it was interesting, albeit reminiscent of what Hickman did with Earth 2.0 in Fantastic Four. The ending where the Children destroyed the Gods was insane! I can’t wait to see where that goes. The bit where Thor shoved his kid into a tree was weird though, didn’t get that at all. Oh, and did anyone else think that Captain France staying behind to fight with Thor was a little jab at Millar’s famous ‘Do you think the A stands for France?’ bit?

Pretty good trick if you're too lazy to write the dialogue that gets you from one scene to the next. How did that happen? Audio was off, so sorry. :roll:

Fucking love this book. I think it's my favorite book right now.

I totally get the early Ultimates/Authority vibe.. with a pinch of pre-Authority Stormwatch thrown in, to boot.

Great fucking issue.

From Hickman's twitter.

Oh, and Tomorrow's Children are the ULTIMATE version of Mike Carey's Children of the Vault.


Hmmm lead by, I assume, Reed Richards. Interesting I assumed they were the Ultimate Future Foundation.

Easy to go that way given their uniforms. Looks like parts of both idea's...from the dialog I got from #2 it looks like Reed doesn't age and created time displacement in the dome resulting in 1000 years passing in a few months like the children of the vault along with Future Foundation gear.

I've done my best to forget about the Children of the Vault but I do like this whole idea.
