I absolutely loved Ultimates and Ultimates 2, and even though I’d heard bad things I still had faith in Ultimates 3, so much so that I bought the hardcover version of it last week. Well, my faith was destroyed when I got round to reading it yesterday. OK, so maybe destroyed is a bit harsh because the artwork was pretty damn good. The story however, well, it was over-complicated and seemed to pay no attention to wha had gone in the previous instalments. Jeph Loeb took over from Mark Millar as the writer and it shows, big time.
Luckily Mark Millar is back on board for the next stage which is Ultimate Avengers – looking forward to it already!
