In Blockbuster, Wolverine returns to New York after a short time away from the X-Men - with a strange strike force armed with sophisticated military technology on his tail.

    When we last left Ultimate X-Men it appeared that Mark Millar was hellbent on a scorched earth policy before leaving the book, leaving quite the mess to clean up for whatever creative team was going to follow his run. Enter Brian Michael Bendis, writer of the excellent Ultimate Spider-Man . His task--to clean up Millar's mess and shepherd the book until a different creative team could be assigned (it ended up being Brian K. Vaughan, but we'll discuss that when we get to the next volume.) When we last left Ultimate X-Men it appeared that Mark Millar was hellbent on a scorched earth policy before leaving the book, leaving quite the mess to clean up for whatever creative team was going to follow his run. Enter Brian Michael Bendis, writer of the excellent Ultimate Spider-Man . His task--to clean up Millar's mess and shepherd the book until a different creative team could be assigned (it ended up being Brian K. Vaughan, but we'll discuss that when we get to the next volume.) The results? Well they are mixed at best. Given how Millar left the book and especially Wolverine, Bendis had to bend himself in creative loops in order to try and restore some normalcy to the book. He starts by focusing on the problem child himself, Wolverine, bringing both Spider-Man (who Bendis was writing at the time in Ultimate Spider-Man and Daredevil, who up to this point had only been seen ina pre-costumed version in the Ultimate Daredevil and Elektra miniseries. In some ways, this is a smart move given Wolverine's spurious status with the X-Men at the end of Millar's run and is actually a setup for the larger story arc that fills out the rest of the volume and brings the X-Men back in the fold to address the new conflict. In the end, while not as messy as Millar's end of his run, there are still some major things that go down here that would have been difficult for the next creative team to address, although given how I recently felt after reading the first collection of Vaughan's Runaways , I'm looking forward to where this is headed. Ultimately (pun intended?) I think Millar left too big of a mess for Bendis to clean up in a way that would be satisfying to folks who, like me, found Millar's take on the X-Men to be a lame rip off of stuff that came before (especially the Claremont/Byrne run) and when he did attempt to strike out on his own, he made the worst of narrative decisions. Perhaps if Bendis had committed to the book for longer he would have been able to accomplish more, but with his focus on Ultimate Spider-Man it's not shocking that he didn't want to stick around.

    Marvel struck gold when they launched the Ultimate X-Men series. By unshackling the popular characters from four decades of convoluted continuity and starting fresh, they were able to let new fans and old in on the X-Men from ground zero. I've been following this series through these deluxe hardcover collections, which contain roughly a year's worth of individual issues and at least two full story arcs. The fourth Ultimate X-Men hardcover collection includes the following issues: Blockbuster - You Marvel struck gold when they launched the Ultimate X-Men series.

I've been following this series through these deluxe hardcover collections, which contain roughly a year's worth of individual issues and at least two full story arcs. The fourth Ultimate X-Men hardcover collection includes the following issues: Blockbuster - You'd think the X-Men would get a chance to catch their breaths after their recent cataclysmic confrontation with Magneto. Instead, Wolverine spends this entire arc being hunted by rogue Weapon X agents who want him dead. Spider-Man and Daredevil are Wolverine's backup support in this arc, written by Ultimate Spider-Man scribe Brian Michael Bendis and illustrated by David Finch. I find the Ultimate Spider-Man character extremely annoying, and the Ultimate Daredevil has none of the personality Bendis gave the "real" Daredevil in his legendary run on that title. Still, this was a fun team-up story, and the artwork was just gorgeous. New Mutants - Bendis and Finch continue their run with this story arc, which finds one time Xavier student Emma Frost leading a new government sponsored mutant team, which includes some very familiar faces. Unfortunately the team's debut is interrupted by an assassination attempt and Sentinel mayhem. Oh, and an X-Man dies at the end. If anyone was capable of following Mark Millar on this title, it's Bendis (or maybe Warren Ellis). Bendis has a great understanding of what makes the Ultimate Marvel Universe work so well, and he's not afraid to shake things up. The fact that he's paired with an artist of Finch's caliber is the icing on the cake. I highly recommend Ultimate X-Men, not only to new X-fans who might be bewildered by the continuity of the older series, but to old school X-Men fans like me. If you keep an open mind, you should find this series quite enjoyable.

    Bendis was writing Ultimate Spider-Man at the time and still deep within its golden era when he took a fill-in gig on UXM between departing Millar and arriving Vaughan. His run on UXM is very wolverine centric without ever being about anything, and without answering any questions it raises. Finch's art is appreciated but otherwise it's just really dull. Kudos for featuring the ever-wasted Ultimate Daredevil Character.

    Sad times. This book ends with the death of (view spoiler)[ the Beast (hide spoiler)] , who should probably never die. Arguably, you could build the entire line around that character. The Wolverine story feels a little bit like it's really a Spider-Man story? And then the second story feels largely build-y. Sad times.

    This particular volume is all too relevant in the hate-filled world of today. And Yesterday. And sadly tomorrow.

    A solid read. Perhaps not one of the strongest in the ultimate X-men line, but faaaaaar from the worst. Just about all of the story lines with Wolverine and Peter Parker had some awesome comedic moments, and the story line in here with Parker didn't disappoint. I'm not sure how I felt about Ultimate Emma Frost. I liked that she ideologically opposed to Xavier without being an out right villain, and I liked how her ideology was shown not to work in the real world.

    This is my favourite of the first four volumes. The energy and pacing are much more enjoyable. I prefer to have more of the smaller arcs then them always trying to save the whole world or country. It was also good to see some new and different characters from the wider marvel universe and it was refreshing to not have any magneto v xavior in this one.

    On retrouve à novueau les X-Men dans leurs aventures d'une complexité inégalable. Je trouve que, dans la premmière partie, qui donne sa couverture à ce recueil, Spiderman est juste bouffon. A part, ça, comme d'habitude, Wolverine est clairement mon idole. On retrouve à novueau les X-Men dans leurs aventures d'une complexité inégalable.

    I want to give this 0 stars because of all the feels at the end but given the emotional impact of said feels, I have to go with my initial thoughts and give it 5 stars.
