Warren Ellis has wreaked havoc in the Ultimate Universe before, and this book sounds heavy on both concept (extreme man vs extreme machine) and violence (Iron Man vs Hulk), both of which are Ellis’s strong-suits.
Someday remind me to tell you about when the Marvel Universe jumped the shark. And why it might not have.
Ultimate Tony Stark really is a fucking jackass. I hate him. I guess he’s well-written.
Who IS this artist? Cory Nard? No, Cary Nord. (Googling …) Huh, Daredevil and Conan. Cool. (Comics dot org ing …) Bruce Wayne: Agent of SHIELD. Huh.
So, this guy’s been around for awhile, has his art always resembled that of Brian Hitch? Or is that just the Utimate house style now?
Ultimate Leader. Nice. He’s pretty wicked.
Well, not much unexpected here. Ellis gets some very detailed revelations about how the Hulking-out thing works, and Bruce turns into the Hulk and breaks out of Tony’s ill-conceived precautions. Next issue, a fight. Yes?
