    Does Rob Liefield have a bizarre mental disorder that makes him think he's drawing a different face every time?

    Rob drew the Hulk's feet. Impressive.

    And that's not even a bad Rob Liefeld drawing. Admittedly Thor looks like an angry 12 year old girl and I'm pretty sure what he's doing with his leg isn't physically possible but still. It's some of his best work.

    "I told you," said Ford, "eddies in the space-time continuum."
    "And this is his sofa, is it?" said Arthur.

    look at how tiny Mr. Fantastic's head is

    now compare the Hulk's two arms to each other

    also Thor's right arm is much more massive than his left

    Has Jeph Loeb always been shitty? Does he just have some "awesome" switch he flips when he's working with Tim Sale?

    There is definitely a synergetic effect there.

    Speaking of which, is Cap. White any good so far?

    The official first issue doesn't come out till the 29th of this month but I've heard good things about the preview issue.

    What is best in life?

    I cannot respect a mighty figure who makes a quote with "Didn't" in it instead of "Did not."

    Also why is there a supernova on his helmet.

    I had thought Hush was pretty good when I read it, but now I'm scared to go back and re-read it.

    EDIT: Personally I would prefer if the handle was longer so Thor could get a decent 2 handed grip on that bad boy. I love the long handled 2 handed hammer look. It's just more badass.
    Yeah, uh, there is a reason why his hammer has a short handle.

    It's still not bad. Pretty much the comic version of a big budget popcorn flick. It's all style and no substance.

    Honestly, Loeb only started getting bad when he went back to Marvel.

    I attribute it to him being trapped in the 90s or something. I mean, dumb Green Hulk, thee and thouing Thor.

    I totally hate what Loeb has done with Ultimates 3, but I have some hope for this.

    And at least my favorite book will remain untouched.

    Actually the whole point of this event is to clean house.

    Even if Ultimatum ends up sucking (fingers crossed that it dosen't), UXM is ending (sorely overdue) and Millar is coming back to do 24 issues of Ultimates Avengers which should be awesome.

    Plus we'll always have Bendis on USM.

    Ult Avengers might be decent, name dropping aside Ultimates was generally awesome if you switch your brain off.

    But Ultimatum looks to be Ultimates 3.5: The Continued Loebening

    I'm a bit sad about Ult X ending because pre-Kirkman it was generally decent.

    That's because if Loeb ever tries to fuck up Ultimate Spider-man, the newspaper will read "COMIC BOOK WRITER ARRESTED FOR MURDER" the next day.

    Well, that's because Bendis admitted you'd need to kill him to ever get at it.

    So given that the cover for this event has Magneto with Thors hammer and since we know that Loeb hates Thor, is it safe to assume that Thor will die in this?

    I used to be really excited by what they had done with ultimate Thor and I loved what they did with Loki but Loeb has mangled the character beyond all recognition.

    Maybe he needs to be let go.

    he wrote Commando and Teen Wolf.

    then the same comic story over and over again for the past 20 years.

    So their going to end U. X-men? That kind of sucks. I'm sure there are plenty of great story ideas out there they could use. They never even got around to doing the Phoenix sage yet.

    Maybe they'll force X-Men and Fantastic Four to share a title. With their powers combined, they'll sell twice as much, and use half as much paper!

    I really dug Ult. X-men when it began. I especialy got into Beast's character. I think they moved him along too swiftly, though.

    I read up until the shit with xavier's kid and the shitty psylocke story. and was all "this is bullshit. i stop here"

    Well at least her post asian ninja reincarnated thing.

    Out of all the Ultimate books, UXM seems to have become the biggest race to introduce Ultimate versions of every 616 character. Instead of focusing on the core team, every new writer seems to want to crowd the roster with Ultimate versions of their own favorites.

    Bendis is nice enough to make his references in the background
    Well not really in the background but it's not like LOOK BEN REILLY LOOK HUGE FUCKING PLAYER RIGHT HERE
    Now the fact that that character later plays a role in the Ultimate Clone Saga is fucking hysterical
    But they didn't really make any mention of what he did in 616 until then
    He was just a dude named Ben Reilly

    Urgh, don't. I think I stopped when they shoehorned Ultimate Cable in as being Wolverine from the Future.

    Ultimate Cable being Wolverine wasnt that bad I thought, it was an interesting twist on expectactions from the 616 version of the character.

    The book went really downhill from there though I agree

    I stopped buying it after that. I have no idea what happened next. If it's available on Marvel Digital one day I'll take a look.

    Ultimate Proteus was bad enough (the whole World Tour arc really)

    No it really gets so much worse. I didnt mind the Proteus arc that much, although it was the worst bit of Millar's run. Then I enjoyed both Bendis and BKV's runs on the book, Kirkman was the one who did the Cable arc and then really turned the book into a shithole.

    I think it's kind of a cool tagline. I don't know much about Ultimate Magneto, but 616 Magneto always likes to play up the Mutants are gods thing.

    Reminds me of his line in X-Men Legends

    Tony Jay was pretty awesome as Magneto.
