1) Find a bad guy
2) Be Wolverine
Bring Back Ultimate Wolverine...again!
1. I agree that Ben switching to his "rocky" form is a step back.
2. The fact that Bendis STILL can't keep even his own continuity straight is embarrassing. The CIA created Spider-Woman, not Roxxon, and Lana (or is it Lori, Benids still gets it wrong) shouldn't be able to use her powers without her mother present. I really hope Cataclysm is the end of his involvement with the UU. Like, Millar, he's just not up to the task anymore.

Hm...of Miles and his amazing friends get sucked into 616, who do you guys think will gain ownership/the ability to write them?
Who was the CIA working with that would commission the involvement of a known super-criminal called Doctor Octopus? The way I see it, Roxxon's involvement is not so much a retcon as a revelation that there was more at work behind the creation of the original Spider-Man's clones than we were originally told. Granted, the CIA's motive seemed to be getting one over on Nick Fury by having their own super-soldiers, but Roxxon is a very shady and deeply unscrupulous corporation and thus would have no problem double-dealing with the CIA and S.H.I.E.L.D. for its own profit. Granted, this should have been explained within the context of the actual story, but I feel it's a rather plausible way of maintaining the canon.
Back in black, the hunter is ready to claim his prey.
Because she is a woman, her bone structure would have changed from Peter. Then puberty and separate living come into place. Also by this point she would look older then Peter by a few years cause you know he like died. So there's a resemblance but it's not like Peter in a wig.
Aside from the continuity errors, I think this looks pretty decent.
Ultimate Comics • Aquaman • Batman • Batman and Robin • Justice League • Wonder Woman • Star Trek • Black Science • The Dream Merchant • Ghosted • Manifest Destiny • Morning Glories • Saga • The Wake
I feel like Bendis is just parodying himself at this point, with the Ultimates sitting around eating Chinese food.
I agree about the coloring. Paul Mounts is usually great, but it just looks off here. Other than that, Marquez's art is solid, as usual, but I think I'm ready for a new artist on the book. I like his sense of design, but things often just look kind of stale. The characters all look great, though.
The preview looks better than Cataclysm #1, which I expected would be the case. Self-parody aside, I actually like seeing the Ultimates sitting around, which is something that I think has been missing from the book for the last year or so. And I don't think it's too much of a stretch that the Ultimates wouldn't know about Jessica's status as a clone, and Tony's reaction is perfect. Overall - I'm looking forward to it.
I like Ultimate Comics. - Read them with us!
I also buy: Captain America, Avengers, FF, New Avengers, X-Factor, among others
I really liked this, but it felt short and it left me wondering if this is the event I thought it would be.
