    I really like Micromax. His costume is very Ultimate and he is a Giant-Man the correct way (unlike how Humphries has been using them lately).

    Does anyone else think that Mach may have a potential connection to the Magneto/Quicksilver/Wanda family?

    Wonder if Fury's figured it out with all that's he's got on his plate. We definitely need to learn more about Xorn and Tian.

    She could be though it might be too obvious so not sure.

    I'm hoping to see more of him.

    This was undoubtedly one of my favorite issues of UXM released in the last decade. Now if only Humphries can come up with some good stories we'll have a great UU again!

    Loving the Utopia storyline done right. Mach Two is really becoming an interesting antagonist, and I can't wait to see what else she's plotting.

    I find it amusing that Decimation is happening in the UU right after 616's ended.

    I know it's a little late but I just got around to reading Ultimate Comics: X-Men #19 and boy was it great! Brian Wood continues to show that he really knows how to write these characters. 10/10! It's sad to see that Jean Grey looks to be a future antagonist. Waiting for Ultimate Comics:X-Men #20 is just going to be harder.

    The issue was super-awesome. Wood is a great writer. He prooved himself with adjectiveless X-men, and now he's doing even better work. The nods to decimation and utopia are cool idea.

    Wonder if we get ultimate avx too?[/SIZE]
    I wouldn't want an ultimate AvX with so many key characters being dead, and besides Ultimate War is close enough to being an Ultimate AvX series.

    I decided to get #18.1 on a whim (aside from Richard Corben's new Poe adap, it was a rather slow week), and was rather surprised at how good it was-- (a.) finding X-books at best only rarely interesting, and (b.) reading only one Ultimate book in my life and finding it mostly just passable [Ellis & Nord's Ultimate Human]. And my surprise only grew here with #19. Brian Wood has crafted the most fascinating status quo for an X-book since the nuMarvel days of Morrison & Milligan/Allred. He's also especially-- I'm assuming, coming in rather ignorant of the prior scribes-- created a rather compelling antagonist in Mach Two, the 14-year old Magneto-in-the-making. Paco Medina compliments the story nigh perfectly. A solid effort all-around.

    I have to admit I miss the 'original' X Men but Wood's writing is better than anything in the 616 'X' universe these days.
