    Nach gut 200 Seiten reicht es mir erstmal. Mark Millar scheint es in dieser Reihe nur um Tabu-Brüche gegangen zu sein. Im Zentrum der Handlung steht ein Black Ops-Team, dass die Aufgaben übernehmen soll, die die Regierung offiziell nie erteilt hat, und die man an die "guten" Helden wie die Avengers nicht übertragen kann.

Im Zentrum der Handlung steht ein Black Ops-Team, dass die Aufgaben übernehmen soll, die die Regierung offiziell nie erteilt hat, und die man an die "guten" Helden wie die Avengers nicht übertragen kann. Ich bin mir sicher, es gibt diese Sondereinheiten, die sich für andere die Hände schmutzig machen und die Drecksarbeit erledigen, von der keiner etwas wissen will. Aber es ist schwierig, daraus eine spannende Comic-Reihe zu machen. Anstatt einer spannenden und gut konstruierten Story setzt Millar auf Gewaltdarstellungen und massenhaft Tötungen. Da werden Gegner durch Kopfschüsse liquidiert und Caps Sohn, Red Skull, wirft schon mal eine Säugling aus dem Fenster, nachdem dessen Mutter gezwungen wurde, ihren Mann mit einer Schere zu erstechen. Die Artwork ist überzeugend, aber die Story hat mich immer weniger gefesselt und schließlich zunehmend abgest0ßen. Ehrlich gesagt mache ich mir Gedanken, was für Menschen auch unter denen sein mögen, die diese Art Story lieben, und ich fürchte, ich möchte nicht dazu gehören. Die "Moral", die hinter diesem Team steckt, ist widerwärtig. Den zweiten Stern gibt´s für die ordentliche Artwork.

    Story reactions -> Meh. Ug. Who is that and what is happening? The art is mostly pretty good. There are some characters that they never really explain who/why they are in the story yet they come in at key points to help move the story along. It's an ugly "realistic" world where pretty much every hero except Spider-Man (not the one in the cage who is never explained) is a douche. Captain America is arrogant guy who likes breaking people while mocking them. No nuance, humility, or idealism. Limite Story reactions -> Meh. Ug. Who is that and what is happening?

Iron Man is a drunk who barely functions. War Machine is government stooge/killer. Hawkeye has more depth and a little humanity. One of the few people with remnants of a conscience. If this sounds curious and you can find it cheap go for it. Otherwise, it's pretty skippable.

    Mostly fun book with the exception of Volume 3, with Blade and Vampire Avengers. Also I don't think I'll ever get used to foul-mouthed Steve Rogers.

    As the Omnibus collects all 4 Ultimate Avengers mini-series, I put all 4 of my reviews form the individual books together. If you've read the individual reviews, you will find nothing new here... But one thing the Omnibus does have over the individual hardcovers is that it's a ONE Deluxe-sized stop for all of Mark Millar's second run on the Ultimates! *********************************************** Book 1 – Ultimate Comics Avengers: Next Generation Marvel did the smart thing by getting Millar back o As the Omnibus collects all 4 Ultimate Avengers mini-series, I put all 4 of my reviews form the individual books together. If you've read the individual reviews, you will find nothing new here... But one thing the Omnibus does have over the individual hardcovers is that it's a ONE Deluxe-sized stop for all of Mark Millar's second run on the Ultimates! *********************************************** Book 1 – Ultimate Comics Avengers: Next Generation Marvel did the smart thing by getting Millar back on an Ultimate title, if only to win back the readers it lost during the The Ultimates 3: Who Killed the Scarlet Witch? and Ultimatum series, which were by all accounts a big letdown to the readership. I won't go over the plot particulars since other reviewers (collectively) have more than sufficiently covered this aspect of the book. Some people don't like Millar's stories or dialogue, and that's fine, but at this point in his career one should know what to expect from him and not be surprised or upset when he delivers exactly what he is known for. Millar is Millar. He's figured out what works for him and he's not going to change. Basically, you know what you're getting into. And so, considering this, underneath the traditional Millar shtick of people calling each other "moron" or "idiot" and shock tactics (like throwing a baby out of a window), for sheer entertainment value this gets top marks. This story also marks the third time (by my count) that Millar uses the [now old] technique of flying a plane at/through the bad guy (first one was in The Authority, Vol. 4: Transfer of Power, second one was in Wolverine: Enemy of the State). While still fun to watch, part of me wonders if maybe Millar is running out of ideas. So be on the look-out for another plane-through-bad-guy, as this story arc is already a few years old. ** Also noteworthy: in Nemesis #1 is the highkacking of Air Force One and it being flown/crashed in a petrol tanker. Also, does anyone else think Gregory Stark is a dead ringer for Daniel Craig? Book 2 – Ultimate Comics Avengers: Crime and Punishment While not perfect, and certainly with some things going against it, this particular volume of Mark Millar's Ultimate Avengers still manages to score 3 stars with this reader. Here's my review, broken down in 3 points: The good: (1) The Punisher joins the Avengers (albeit against his will), (2) a scene reminiscent of "The silence of the lambs" in which the Spider trades iformation with the Black Widow, and (3) the way Hawkeye "frees" the Punisher from the Avengers' control. That was cool. Further back stories of different members of the team, and typical Millar action and dialogue keep this book entertaining (although I lost count of how many times characters used the words "idiot" and "moron"). The bad: Tyrone Cash (probably one the worst characters ever invented - one-dimensional and an obvious Hulk stand-in, but I guess that's the point) and the way the coloring is done in the book. Everybody's got that plastic-y sheen, as if they're all oiled-up or something. Ugh. And it must be noted that once the Avengers get the Punisher, he doesn't really do much. The ugly: The final throw-down between Ghost Rider and Blackthorne. As if one Ghost Rider isn't enough, now we have two. The fight itself is a bit messy in the sense that it's confusing and I found my interest in this part of the story to be practically non-existent. So, to sum things up: an entertaining but also forgettable story, and ultimately non-essential reading. 3 stars. Book 3 - Ultimate Comics: Blade vs. The Avengers I liked this much more than I though I would, as I usually am not one for vampire stories and their co-existence with the Marvel Universe ("Ultimate" or otherwise). What's not to like? We've got a Mark Millar script and some fabulous Steve Dillon art, a couple of origin stories (including the one for the new Ultimate Daredevil). And even though there is a LOT of violence, blood, and death in this book, Steve Dillon makes it look almost comical. No, really. And that is something he does really well (just check out his "Punisher" runs with Garth Ennis for further proof - The Punisher, Volume 1: Welcome Back, Frank comes to mind). There are a number of genuinely hilarious moments, like the "fight" between Hulk and Anthony, the vampire leader. I also liked that Nick Fury adamantly REFUSES to refer to the threat as "vampires", referring to it as a virus, a "viral infection passed through blood and other fluids". Vampires aren't real, man, don't give me that. Also of note are the Stark brothers' bickering, two exceptionally successful, grown men arguing like children. All in all, good times to be had. Just not a five-star book... Book 4 – Ultimate Comics Avengers vs. New Ultimates: Death of Spider-Man By far the most confusing and over-the-top arc of the Ultimate Avengers series, this was basically Mark Millar doing some of the set-up for the franchise’s second relaunch, the Ultimates series written by Hickman (Nick Fury back in charge, Triskelions in foreign countries, the elimination of characters created solely for this run, like Tyrone Cash and Gregory Stark). But, in retrospect, maybe Millar was trying too hard to razzle & dazzle. The end product was kind of a mess. Yet despite that fact, this final volume of Mark Millar's Ultimate Avengers still manages to score 3 stars. Here's my review, broken down in 3 points: The good : Tyrone Cash gets killed off! This alone raised the rating by a full star. Also of note : Gregory Stark sets everybody up, takes over S.H.I.E.L.D. and takes it global. Great potential there. Thor fries Gregory Stark to a crisp. I know, it sounds bad, but what follows is hilarious : - Thor : Got him! - Tony Stark : Thor, what the hell? - Thor : What are you talking about? We only had a few seconds where his suit wasn’t working. - Tony Stark : I meant knock him out! Cap to hit him with his shield or something! I didn’t mean fry him. Oh my god. Look what you’ve done to him! What the hell were you thinking? The bad : As in Book 2 – Blade Vs. The Avengers, the way the coloring is done in the book has everybody looking like oiled-up plastic mannequins or something. Ugh. The art itself is messy and at times confusing. The bad coloring job just doesn’t help. Also not-so-great : the 24-hour Hulk pills. Give me a break. What’s next? 24-hour Thor pills? Cap pills? That’s just lame… In the WTF department we have the death of Spider-Man, who saves Captain America from the Punisher’s rifle shot. While not exactly a spoiler as this event is actually in the title of the book, what does Spider-Man have to do with anything? It’s such a random thing and it totally kills the mood of the face-punching and the kneecap-shooting. Why couldn’t it happen in his own book? Overall, not the best Ultimate Avengers book of the series. I’m just glad it’s over.

    This Omnibus contains four different stories of different quality. The first( with Captain America and Red Skull) and the last are great( Ultimates vs Avengers), the other two not so ( with Ghost Rider and Blade), heck to be honest the Ghost Rider story is pretty terrible and so is the Blade one except the end which is I will admit original. Keep in mind that these stories take place in the Ultimate universe and as such do not follow the Marvel continuity. Anyway this is far from being Mark Millar' This Omnibus contains four different stories of different quality.

Anyway this is far from being Mark Millar's best world and for once he isn't teamed up with a start artist on some of these stories and it shows up. I was going to rate this as two stars, the last story bumps it to 3.

    Millar is a smarter writer than I think a lot of people give him credit for. He's got a lot of craft in him, even if his Millarisms have become more pronounced as time has gone on. As such, imagine the disappointment by many when he returned to the Ultimate Universe, after it was in disarray after Loeb's Ultimates 3 and Ultimatum. While it's good and interesting, Millar's run here never reaches back to his heyday with Ultimates 1 and 2.

While it's good and interesting, Millar's run here never reaches back to his heyday with Ultimates 1 and 2. He initially pitched this series as each arc being a "self-contained event story" and while that does end up being a bit hyerbolic--I do think this series serves an interesting metacommentary. It's Millar's final work for the big two, and I think he's often talking about his disinterest in mainstream superhero comics through the lack of innovation, lack of creator-owned opportunities and ultimately freedom. Millar creates a lot of characters during this run--yet all of them are ultimately killed off relatively quickly (with intentional subversion or shock value) or clearly no match for the cookie they were cut from. Millar somewhat intentionally kills all his creations and returns the world to its status quo. He puts all the toys back into their box before taking off and creating Millarworld. The stories themselves are not particularly good or interesting, but when you read the commentary and seeming boredom taking place--its another story. This last run is just a lampooning of the comic book industry with attempts to play with obvious tropes, expectations and minor subversion that feels like a decent writer "taking the piss" and bashing his head against the constraints of editors.

    Super inconsistent. Some stories were good. Some stories were pretty mediocre. There's kind of this overall sense of mean-ness, though. I think it's because Captain America is really the star and he's really a jerk.

    Mark Millar is such a strange writer. He's capable of such brilliance, but he also spends a large amount of time trying to repeat that brilliance in the least creative way possible. And much of this large book amounts to the latter, not the former. First, it must be said that the Ultimate universe is a bit of a pig in a poke at this point, especially after the events of Ultimatum, so I have to give Millar props for trying. But in some ways, there's just no salvaging the wreckage, particularly if Mark Millar is such a strange writer.

And much of this large book amounts to the latter, not the former. First, it must be said that the Ultimate universe is a bit of a pig in a poke at this point, especially after the events of Ultimatum, so I have to give Millar props for trying. But in some ways, there's just no salvaging the wreckage, particularly if he's not bringing his "Ultimates" game. I'll address specific plotlines below, but in general, there's little attention paid to character here: it's big, flashy, summer-blockbuster type stuff, with cool ideas and visuals but characters that are almost completely hollow. Also, Millar consistently wavers between being overly faithful to the 616 characters and being faithless, so that all these characters seem like their original counterpart, or completely different from them. This was a line he walked brilliantly in the original Ultimates, keeping true to the core of the characters, but changing them in fresh ways. And I know it's an incredibly hard line to walk, but he just doesn't pull it off here. (view spoiler)[ Book 1: Ultimate Comics Avengers 1 So the twist on the Red Skull character is interesting, but isn't really used to do anything interesting with his character nor Cap's. It's flashy and intriguing, but really just acts as a MacGuffin for the plot to move along. He really doesn't manage to be any more interesting than the original Red Skull. It also makes for some scenes taken too-directly from Civil War, making me feel like Millar doesn't have any new ideas to use here. Similarly, the introduction of Stark's brother opens up some possibility, but isn't really used other than just snide comments. There is some real possibility of character movement here, but none is found. Similarly, Nerd Hulk and War Machine just manage to be one-dimensional, boring versions of other characters. Nerd Hulk will get more interesting later, but War Machine never manages to. This all leads to a very long final fight scene made rather boring due to the cosmic cube, but it does have a very nice ultimate moment, even if it's a little unbelievable. (I mean, latitude and longitude isn't that accurate.) Anyway, it's fairly fun in the same way most summer blockbusters are. 3/5. Book 2: Ultimate Comics Avengers 2 Here, we introduce Punisher (who's indistinguishable from his 616 counterpart, as far as I can tell), the First Hulk, who is actually an interesting original character, and one of the few characters with any discerning traits, and Ghost Rider, who is in the book. There are way too many characters introduced way too quickly for them to have any interesting features. A lot of pages are spent on Punisher punishing stuff, with no actual plot development. Similarly, lots of punching. Punisher as Captain America replacement is a laughable plotline, and one I'm fairly certain I've seen before. The actual plotline here--GR is killing off rich and powerful people who used to be members of a biker gang--is only marginally relevant to the action. In fact, the whole story is basically just a bunch of fight scenes stapled together with some vague plot points. 2/5. Book 3: Ultimate Comics Avengers 3 I think things really go off the rails here. There are vampires, and Blade, and everyone gets turned, and art by Steve Dillon, who I don't enjoy, and it's all sort of a wash of silliness. At this point, Millar has stopped trying to replace characters in any way, and is just replacing them with identical characters (see: young Daredevil). But, after all the ridiculousness, Millar wraps it up with a very cool ending. I mean, it's stolen from volume 1 basically, but man, it is very cool. But the real tragedy with this book is that everything is so forgettable. Avengers vs. Vampires should be much more epic than this; aside from the ending, I can't really remember much. 2/5. Book 4: Ultimate Comics Avengers vs. New Ultimates Not giving up on re-using all the good ideas from Civil War, Millar tries to squeeze the rest of them out here. Fortunately, he sets it up differently. But it's ultimately too much cloak-and-dagger stuff for a comic that's primarily punching. Civil War shined because it had great action backed up by some real emotions--these characters cared about each other--but there's none of that here. There is, yet again, way too much going on. A few interesting plot points are overshadowed by tons of silly ones (everyone hulking out...ugh). Spider-Man is introduced only to be killed off. (I'm assuming this worked better in Spider-Man's solo book. Here it was almost entirely emotionless.) So it's basically the action of Civil War, minus the emotions, and plus a few silly ideas thrown in. 2/5. (hide spoiler)] All in all, I have a lot of complaints about this book. But I read it during final exams / first week of summer, and it made a good book for that time--all flash, no substance, nothing to think about. It was enjoyable, and did what I wanted. But I wouldn't say it was a good book.

    I bought this omnibus after reading the Ultimates and I was not dissapointed. But it was a bit of a surprise that the stories are more about Nick Fury and his black-op Avengers-team instead of the classic Ultimates/Avengers. Hawkeye has a great part, the "Nerd Hulk" is a bit ridiculous - but the Real Hulk (a character like Luke Cage) makes it more nasty. War Machine is as cold as his armour.

Blade shows up in the third story, but this was very dissapointing. Avengers turning into vampires. But the last one gears up the level of quality since the black-ops-team (with a better part from Blade) faces the Ultimates and a very strategic/espionage back-ground story concerning Nick Fury, Carol Danvers (not as miss Marvel but director of Shield) and .. Tony Stark's brother.

    The plot in this starts out a little iffy, but, as a huge Captain America fan, I stuck around. After a few issues, I realized that 1610!Steve is absolutely flawless (or maybe I just like him in this universe because he is more flawed). I love Pacheco's art. It's quite dark in this run and I think it fits the tone of the story very well. I know that Ultimates gets a bad rap sometimes, but if you like BAMF!Steve, you should really check this out!

    I was sadly underwhelmed by this omnibus of ultimate stories. There were some parts of it that I really liked, however. Nerd Hulk is pretty cool. I like how they portrayed Captain America. Didn't like how they portrayed Tony Stark. Liked what they did with Hawkeye. Didn't really care for the art. Liked the story in some parts but not others. Overall, it was ok.

    Can I give this a 6? I love the Ultimates!!! Book 3 was the weakest of the 4 in the book. They killed off some cool characters that I enjoyed, I wanted the action figures lol!! It also had the weakest art. Book 1 and the Red Skull was fantastic! Book 2 brought in the Punisher and I was in love. Book 4 wrapped everything up nicely.

    The Ultimates started off so good it's sad to see how far the concept has fallen. Millar is in full-tilt, right-wing, homophobic idiocy here. It's a vile and ugly read. It's no wonder the Ultimate Universe has become so very unpopular. Skipped the 4th book collected herein as it's also collected in the Death of Spider-man Omnibus.
