Bring back Ultimate Doctor Doom
Comics are more better.
i know i'm weighing in late on this.. i just got home from the hospital and internet was patchy.. but i read y comics.
Even though I haven't liked Humphries on this book, i thought this was his best issue. Still though, for me it just showed he could have given us something much better the whole time. It's a shame, man

If it weren't for the fact that this is Humphries' last issue, I'd have Ultimates taken off my pull list. The whole reconstruction arc has been pretty bad, but this was downright horrible.
Humphries had us excited for a lot of things, but nothing delivered. We were excited for Divided We Fall, it was boring and predictable. We were excited for the return of Modi. Boring and predictable. We were excited for Iron Patriot. Its just a repaint of Iron Man. We were excited for the WC Ultimates. They're just faint shadows of the 616 versions with little to no story or background. We were excited to see the Infinity Gems. Thank God he didn't do anything with that though, we didn't need him screwing up the Ultimate Infinity story. There was a lot of "Hey that looks interesting!" which then turned into "Ohhh... well that ended up being dumb." Its one thing to have a good idea, but its another actually put together a good story from that idea. I think Humphries had a lot of good ideas to work with, whether they be his or someone else's, and he didn't pull through story wise.
I like Ultimate Comics. - Read them with us!
I also buy: Captain America, Avengers, FF, New Avengers, X-Factor, among others
Seriously though self parody is a beautiful thing and really shouldn't get you all that riled. It keeps you grounded.
Edit: Sorry double post.

As weird as it sounds, if you know how I am you'll know that I LOVE my country despite it's problems, I actually really dug Sam's run including it's mockery of American patriotism. Captain America came incredibly close to being a fascist ruler and ever since Obama got reelected I've been feeling a lack of faith in America's citizens. I'm tired of people trying to ruin what is the greatest country on Earth while they disguise it as "patriotism" and so I kind of enjoyed seeing a farce of it.
Also it was, in general, the big action movie Ultimates is supposed to be.

You know what makes Captain America giving up his Presidency even worse? Considering Humphries' own personal timeline has Ultimates exist for over 9 years, you know what that means? Mutant prejudice has also been on ongoing for multiple years, yet it was Captain America who finally changed things and helped the Mutants, now with him giving up on his elected power he allows things like Natural Resources to continue happening.
