If this is going to be the end of the Ultimate Universe, it might as well be finished by its "founders" Bendis and Bagley. It would be awesome to have a Return of the Jedi type ending with Peter Parker, Wolverine, Professor X, and Iron Man. watching Miles, Kitty, Cloak and Dagger, and the Ultimates take down Galactus.

Great review, Mat. I enjoyed the floating head panel as well. I have a few questions though. Do you think that Pandora will interact with The Question in this series at all? Will we find out his identity in this book? Also, is this an ongoing or a miniseries?

I'm really looking forward to seeing Pandora's interactions with Superman.

I recently just read Age of Ultron #10 and gave it a fairly positive review. However, many comics fans on Twitter and reviewers (Newsarama for example) said it was Bendis' worst work, and he should be banned from comics events. I was wondering what you guys thought Bendis' actual worst comics are.

My pick is his run on Avengers Assemble with Mark Bagley. I read the first few issues of this run to see if it was good to recommend to new comics fans and because I miss Bendis/Bagley on Ultimate Spider-Man. However, the plot was by the numbers and the art was shoddy. It seemed like a movie tie-in.

Looks interesting. I like Hank Pym's characterization in Age of Ultron, but I kind of want Silver Surfer on the team

My team is called Marvel Knights Reborn: Punisher, Spider-Man,Blade, Luke Cage, Black Cat, and Captain Marvel (Carol Danvers) to add more power and act as liaison to the Avengers

@WillPayton: This will be a tough fight. River is a telepath and will guess a lot of Batman's moves and give him some wounds with her sword. However, because of his superior strength, I give the Bat an edge.

Suicide Squad, I liked the retooling of Harley Quinn's nature, the expendable nature of the team, and the exciting, violent action. I can't wait for the upcoming crossover with Resurrection Man.

Gore doesn't really bother me that much, but I'm more into old school atmospheric horror (The Shining, Evil Dead, Jaws) than the "torture" stuff like Jaws. I think if the gore helps develop characters or helps move the story along then I'm fine with it. Definitely feel you on the "tell, not show". Have you read Justice League: Dark?

Deadpool is a fun and hilarious character in the Marvel Universe with his mix of breaking the fourth wall, humor, and violence. What team will he join in Avengers vs. X-Men? My money is on the X-Men because he's a mutant, but this mercenary could go either way. I'd like to see him face Wolverine...

@danhimself: Yeah, the tears after Scarlet Witch seemed like a last ditch copout to humanize him. What do you think Scarlet Witch's role will be in Avengers vs. X-Men?

@Superguy0009e: That could work. I really enjoyed his work on the Ultimates especially making Thor, a crazy man/messianic figure.
