    Looks great. Will definitely be picking this up. Looking foward to this conclusion of this arc. Will be my last issue ethough, as I just have no interest of the characters in next arc.
    I came for hawkeye and cap. I ended up enjoying everyone besides Nerd Hulk. All of my fav's will be appearing in New Ultimates. Shaem I can't pick it up due to terrible writing.
    Ready for the return of the one and only Spider-Man!!

    as someone who hasn't read about the ultimates since ultimates 2 ended, is this arc worth checking out or has too much happened in between with these characters that i'd be lost?
    and i'm counting 1, counting 2, counting 3...

    I think you could definitely pick up Ultimate Avengers without having read anything in-between. There is some stuff that you missed, but nothing that's too important to the plot. Plus, it hardly ever references it anyways, so continuity-wise you should be good.

    Avengers definitely is different than Ultimates (more decompressed, less detailed art), but it's still pretty good. I think I would've enjoyed it more if I had read it all at once instead of suffering through the delays so I think you're in a better position than you would've been if you'd been getting it all along.

    So yeah, if you enjoyed Ultimates, than you should pick up Avengers. It's just an action romp, but a pretty fun one.

    The preview was okay, I guess. While I still much prefer Miki's inks over Vines' (at least on Pacheco), this issue looks far better than Vines' past work. It's not nearly as blocky as it was, and a lot of the detail is still there, which I like.

    As for the story itself, I'm actually kinda bored. I think we all know how this is going to end, so the constant chit-chat over how much of a badass the Red Skull is has become redundant, as has all of the needless posturing and prolonging of the final fight; just get it over with.

    I'm really looking forward to the next arc, though. I'm excited as to what Millar will do with a PunisherCap, and I'm always enthusiastic about new Leinil art, particularly when he's drawing characters like these. The fact that it will often double-ship only sweetens the deal. I just hope there's more...filling... per issue. I've not liked how "light" each issue has been.

    i may check out the tpb at some point. i've been waiting for pacheco's return to marvel. i'd probably enjoy this arc for that as much as i would catching up on the ultimates.

    Anyone read this issue in full? Thoughts? I'm not sure if I really liked it. It wasn't terrible by any means, but it wasn't necessarily great either. I felt it was kind of anti-climatic. Also, what is the deal with fury at the end? Fury sounds like an absolute d*ck in this issue. I'm going to read it again issues 1 - 6 in it's entirety before I make any final decisions about the series.

    I just finish reading it in full, I thought it was not that good but the past three issue haven't been that good. I thought the first 3 issues were great then 4,5,6 were just flat, and red skul reason for going after the cube was worse part.

    I was so happy to see leinil francis yu pencils for the next issue, thats what I want to read.

    Personally, I hope to see more of the Red Wasp. She seems interesting.

    The ending didn't make any sense. The whole issue for that matter.

    bah so this arc finally ended
    the last issue lacks a proper ending, its rushed and ridiculous and also leaves too many questions unanswered

    i thought issues 3 and 4 were the best of the whole arc, since they offered the best action
    and action is really all the UCA had to offer us so far

    very very weak story, pretty inconsistent itself, not to mention the estabilished stuff from ultimates

    millar got lazy to say the least
    or hes working on too many projects at the same time and just doesnt care enough to make any of his work make sense anymore
    hes the ultimatum syndrome personified
    cool concept, lazy (and stupid) execution

    red skull altogather is just ridiculous
    the ending of the arc is a big wtf moment considering what was going on for the whole time
    red wasp is for the whole thing nothing more then a plot device
    nerd hulk is useless, he could very well be earased from the whole story
    gregory is being prepared for a future arc as far as i can tell, had nothing to do so far
    hawkeye is a joke
    as for cap i have mixed feelings

    only war machine and black widow were interesting to me so far

    fury was a wuss lacking control of the whole situation
    and yet its still implied that hes the man for the job

    im not even interested in the spider since the way he was presented just reminded me of TAO from WildCATS

    poor ultimate line

    Yes, this ended way too easily. I agree that Millar got lazy, very lazy.

    As did Pacheco.

    The ending made sense but the execution was horrible.

    spoilers:
    His impregnable shield can't stop a jet? But it could stop Hulk and Warmachine smacking him around?
    end of spoilers

    The issue was mostly pathetic .

    I'm not a Miller hater but i'm beginning to think most of his work starts strong but loses steam quickly.

    If you have the Cosmic Cube and you are that evil wouldn't you at least use your imagination a bit instead of just using it to brush off everyone who is trying to attack you?



    That Bullshit confession at the end makes no sense either unless he was just saying that for a sympathy ploy.

    How was Cap able to penetrate Skull's force field when noone else couldn't? makes no sense at all and Miller didn't even try to reason it out.


    The art as usual is nice (i like the colouring especially) but occasionally some slight lapses in storytelling.
