    These four storylines were all interesting and I thought played with the Ultimate characters really well. Each story felt very distinct, there wasn't much transition or build up which was my biggest problem. They were still well written and I thought each arc explored mutants in different ethical or political ways which was cool.

    The easiest to improve a comic book series? Hire Brian K Vaughan, who does exactly that, to this series. And just like that we get the recruitment attempt of Northstar, the coming of Mr Sinister, a mutant massacre, street mutants, carny mutants(!), the return of Gambit and the debuts of Fenris! Phew! Good work by Vaughan - 7.5 out of 12.

    Vaughan's run on UXM is fine. It features too much boring teen drama between Rogue, Iceman, and Kitty that goes nowhere. Maybe that was more interesting at the time? I don't remember. A few of his minor stories are interesting, particularly the final one, but otherwise this feels like a writer meant for greater, more interesting things slumming it on an X-Men book that had no clear direction after Millar left.

    I have mixed feelings about the Ultimate X-men line. I have always felt that the X-men had the greatest potential in the Ultimate line but was consistently the worst series when compared to the rest of the ongoing titles in the Ultimate line up. With in the frame work of the entire Ultimate line this volume was of the quality I would expect from an Ultimate book, but sadly from the frame work of the Ultimate X-men it stands out as probably one of the best. There is nothing particularly exceptiona I have mixed feelings about the Ultimate X-men line.

There is nothing particularly exceptional in here, but it is steadily good. The Ultimate versions of characters in here all seem very different while still being true to the characters original spirit, which I always felt was when the Ultimate line was at it's best. Ultimate Mojo, Longshot, and Dazzler all excelled in here. I enjoyed seeing Colossus's sexuality touched apon and seeing Logan struggling with his dark past. There was also a ton of one line throw backs to mainstream marvel that I appreciated, something that other titles in the Ultimate line up seem to be full of but are normally lacking in here. I particularly got a laugh out of angel being called "War" for short.

    I've always loved the Ultimate Universe idea. No need to reboot the entire line of comics that people already follow, while also allowing a fresh take on characters that may be lessened or outright ruined with too many writer's changes to decades worth of story. This collection continues to introduce and expand on familiar X-Universe characters, while giving a modern twist to their early years. A great continuation of this new team of teenage outcast heroes.

    This Mr. Sinister was really stupid and confusing. He winds up feeling like five different story ideas—none of which work on their none—and none of which really gel together. The Gambit-Rogue story took a new turn. The Longshot story was fun but I thought the ending (view spoiler)[ was too sour. (hide spoiler)] This Mr. Sinister was really stupid and confusing.

    les histoires sont plutôt décousues, mais c'est toujours un plaisir de voir Colossus et Wolverine. les histoires sont plutôt décousues, mais c'est toujours un plaisir de voir Colossus et Wolverine.
