Nick Fury has dispatched the Ultimates to take down their most powerful member – Thor! S.H.I.E.L.D. is convinced that the Thunder God is a former mental patient who's far too dangerous to be loose – and the awesome Asgardian is doing little to dispel that notion.
This was a strange issue, it wasn’t great, but it certainly wasn’t terrible. The thing about it I think was the fragmentation of it all. The story jumped around at the beginning and there didn’t seem to be any fluidity to it. The whole European team bit was rather cringe worthy, which was a shame. But the part I was really waiting for didn’t let me down. Ultimate Thor is bananas and the whole story around him is extremely engrossing (I’m throwing my hat in with him too, damn that Loki). Next issue is gonna to be sick!!!
Hitch continues to give us some fine arse work this issue. The only real let down was a conceptual one. The whole European Team design seemed lethargic and easy, which is a shame as it could have been sooooooo much better. This was only a small part of the issue though. The Jarvis bit was nice (good facial expressions) and as with the writing, the Thor parts were really good. Especially the page that gives us the first real shot of him.
