    the only redeeming panel of the entire Ultimates 3 trainwreck is when Ultron is telling Wasp she is practically his mother and then Hank screams "I GUESS THAT MAKES ME THE MOTHERFUCKER" and rips off his head

    That really happened? Because that sounds ridiculously awesome.

    oh my god, that's actually hilarious

    I mean, it's in no way, shape or form what anyone in theses comics should say, but still!

    The panel of Ant-Man growing super huge in the flood was really cool looking.

    I'm pretty much in agreeance with most in that the preview was terrible but the issue itself wasn't too bad.

    Look I need a scan of that panel ASAP

    If you haven't already, I suggest you read 4th Letter's Ultimate Edit series, an edited version of Ultimates 3, with all the dialogue replaced. It's a nice way to keep up with Ultimates, without suffering Jeph Loeb's writing.

    Here's an edited version of the sequence Bale was talking about. Use your imagination.

    This is hilarious. That one panel with the Super Smash Brothers was great.

    Gotta admit, I thought it would be a lot worse. Once you got past the preview stuff though, it was actually pretty compelling. A number of unanswered questions...
    How the hell is Doom back?

    ...but this might be worth picking up after all.
    Well the last issue of Ultimates 3 showed that he was behind the Ultron stuff, but I honestly dont remember when was the last time he appeared before that
    Before that he was in Ultimate Power for no reason at all, and prior to that he was last seen in UFF trapped in the zombie dimension with a Lovecraftian parasite of incredible power gestating in his chest, having previously failed to remove it.

    So who the fuck knows how he's still kicking around. Probably not Loeb.

    My biggest complaint so far was Kitty telling Peter to "stop being cute" or something like that. It just didn't seem like something she would say at all to him given their recent history and the breakup.

    My favourite part was Sue and Johnny's dad asking Johnny when he's finally going to get off his ass and make something out of his life

    Because I mean being part of a superhero team that has saved the world a couple of times apparently doesn't count

    Dude's got high expectations of his kids, apparently!

    Yeah, that.
    But yes, when we last saw Doom, he was in an alternate universe, one of the Great Old Ones was about to hatch out of his chest, and he was facing down six cosmic-powered Galactus zombies, while the portal back to his home universe had just closed for a billion years.

    When I saw the end of Ultimates 3 I was curious, but I thought they would explain it in Ultimatum. Hopefully they will eventually, and not just ignore it. Because I really want to hear how he got out of that situation...

    It's Loeb. This won't be explained any more than he explained why Pyro was suddenly a rapist, Sabertooth had entirely different claws, Hawkeye is Bullseye, Jan isn't Asian, Wanda and Pietro are incestuous (were?), etc.

    and Hawkeye changed his costume/demeanor because he's crazy and suicidal from what happaned to his family and has a giant death wish.

    I'm not saying it's a good explenation, but it was given.

    It's generally pretty safe to assume that Loeb has never read any of the other Ultimate titles beyond maybe a wikipedia summary.

    This seems like a giant middle finger to everyone who actually bought and followed UXM and UFF.

    This better not fuck up USM. Bendis deserves to stay in control of that group of characters.

    Yeah, I can appreciate using the Ultimate Universe to do things you can't in 616 like killing mainstay characters such as Johnny Storm, but everyone who has (seemingly) died in Ultimatum was killed in such an offhanded manner that it really feels like Loeb dropping a bunch of characters to make his shitty apocalypse story seem that much more serious.

    Again, we dont know if any of these are going to stick, but the first issue gives the impression that the following characters died in the opening attack.
    Wasp
    Beast
    Nightcrawler

    The Human Torch
