Ultimate Iron Man II *spoilers*
Interesting to see where this will go.
Right now, it seems rather straight up Iron Man and War Machine go kill them some terrorists,but there were enough hints that "something's not right" with the gov't goons that got them involved and that the mission is a cover for something else.
Of course, even if the terrorist mission is a red herring, the real story seems to be focused on dealing with Obadiah Stane, and he's turning out to basically be Achilles from Orson Scott Card's "Shadow" series.
Green Mist of Death
I really hate Ultimate Obadiah. I get an Eric Cartman vibe from him. I like where the story is heading so I'm going to pick up the next issue. Ferry's art is amazing.
I enjoyed it. It did seem rather straight-forward, but then again Card had to re-establish so much from the original series. And it wasn't like nothing happened while the characters just talked; the plot did move forward. I'm very curious to see where things are going. I think this will be a good addition to the Ultimate Universe; shame it won't get the attention that The Ultimates will. :rolleyes:
This was a good read for me. Better so far than UIM1, its pretty basic yet still entertaining. The end of the issue of 'which one is the father' seemed so cliche and simple.. yet I am interested and intrigued as to what will happen next.
That's true, this issue was better than the Ultimates 3 #1 imo. The intrigue was more so in UIM2 than U3 for me.

I didn't want to start a new thread so I am just asking my question here.
I have never read any of the Ultimate Iron Man comics, but I am looking into it. I was wondering what makes it rated "Parental Advisory" instead of just "T+"?
If I had to guess I'd say it's a because Ultimate Tony is an alcoholic womanizer (not unlike the early 616 Tony) and the book depicts Tony and Rhodey gunning down a cell of alleged terrorists. It has enough vice to earn the PA rating, for sure.

Nice cliffhanger. The trajectory of the plot is fairly typical for an Orson Scott Card tale, but it's fun nonetheless.
I'm enjoying this title more than almost any other title put out by Marvel at the moment. Too bad there's only one more issue.

Great story, brilliant art. I wish Si Ma as Tony's aide-de-camp was a character in the regular MU continuity. She rocks.
