The Ultimates 3
Ultimate Armor Wars
And that's it, I think.
Yeah i'll probably read Ultimates 3 just because I do want the full Ultimates story. I already have the Ultimate Spider-Man Ultimatum book.. I'm wondering if I should even bother with the main Ultimatum.. Spider-Man is the most important character to me so he's the only guy I want to collect to completeness. I'll be ordering the first USM Omnibus soon. I decided to start my non-spidey Ultimate reading with the Ultimate Avengers Omnibus.. primarily because the Omnibus is a good deal on Amazon right now, and those things seem to not stay reasonably priced forever. I also don't mind starting a story that has continuity before it as long as it is a story in itself, which it seems like. I like the idea of Captain America going rogue.. In fact going rogue is pretty much the only thing about the character that ever interests me, so that'll be a fun jumping on point.. That collection includes All 18 "Ultimate Comics Avengers" and all 6 "Ultimate Comics Avengers Vs. New Ultimates".. and in the same order I added "Ultimate Comics New Ultimates: Thor Reborn". It should be a pretty solid reading experience... I've got a huge wish list on Amazon, but the next books I'll be ordering will be "Utimate Spider-Man Omnibus Vol. 1", "The Ultimates: Ultimate Collection", "The Ultimates 2: Ultimate Collection", "Ultimate Galactus Trilogy", and maybe Ultimatum: Requiem(is requiem worth it?) Then I'll see where I am with my other non-ultimate trades because I might need to order more Moon Night, Chew, Atomic Robo, Daredevil by Bendis, Batman: The Black Mirror, or I may start reading Ultimate X-Men. The thing about Ultimate X-Men is, when I started reading Ultimate Comics X-Men this year I was a little put off by this panel:
Which is a bummer because I really like the Kitty Pryde character, I'm just a little old to be liking her in the way she's being presented there
Personally I think a lot of 16 year old girls have nice bums.
But it's a cartoon girl so who cares?
Who's Chris Hanson? Wasn't Hanson the name of a 90's american band? Is he one of those guys with the long blonde hair?
Can I just inform those who don't know that if you want to read one of Loeb's Ultimate books you'll have to read all three: Ultimates 3, Ultimatum and New Ultimates (in that order) to understand what's going on because he sets up a lot of story-lines that didn't finish (or make any sense whatsoever) until his run was over. Wana have a complete Ultimates collection? Get the Loeb books. Want to actually be able to understand them? Get all three.
Loeb also wrote a fourth book called Ultimate X. It's not an Ultimates book though so you can skip this one if you like. However, get it if you're interested in starting the new UC:XM title that's currently running because Ultimate X gives origins to many of the characters that feature in UC:XM, such as a new Wolverine, a new Blob and a new Angel.
