4 stars? are you mad?

this was awful, the art was terrible, the character design choices are criminal (Iron man and Falcon look like they belonged in 90's Saturday morning cartoon), the big surprise was predictable. The story? protagonists turn up at a place fight bad guys for no reason, hardly sets up anything interesting at all.

the letter on the final page sums its up "I'm Gonna Wreck the Utimate Universe"

In ten years time, this will be treated as a joke by future writers.

Im pretty sure even in the movie the shield has the normal colours when he goes on the covert mission.

Not sure if I'll get the legends version or the select version. Not seen either in UK stores yet despite the filming being out for 3 weeks now.

@jonny_anonymous: Loved Hickman run, he understood the ultimate universe and clearly set out to do a sequel to Millar/hitch era Ultimates. Its shame we never got to see where he was going. It also a shame people got so annoyed about Reed Richards being the villain (Bendis did that not hickman), prehap if he just made the villain kang it would of been more popular. Sam Hampheries messed hickman's story up big time and Fialkov didn't help either.

Sadly the now impossible continuity of the Ultimate Universe (now pretty much Bizzaro Earth) makes it the most inaccessible books on the market.

Doomed to die

  1. Captain America Winter Soilder
  2. Avengers
  3. Captain America
  4. Iron Man 1
  5. Hulk
  6. Thor
  7. Thor 2
  8. Iron man 2
  9. Iron man 3

My reasoning is that the top three films don't try to do everything. While Iron man 2,3 and Thor 2 try to be all things to all people.

Iron man 3 is a bad film because its all over the place, it wants to be a political thriller with constructed war of terror. It wants us to think it rebellious in portrayal of Iron man and the Mandarin, yet it also wants to be a generic superhero film with Ironman having a love interest aka damsel in distress. It tries to be funny with it awful awkward humour but at same time wants to take the plot seriously. It asks the audience to swing between all these different tones and the result it is confusing. Thor 2 does all these things aswell but doesn't feature as poor writing as ironman 3.

both Captain America films and Avengers keep it focused. Captain America is a superhero film with lite political elements and that's it. it doesn't force humour on the audience and it doesn't resort to the females being solely there to be rescued. Avengers is a big action blockbluster and a team film, it focuses on big action and bringing all the colourful personality of team together to overcome insurmountable odds to succeed.

its pretty hard to care what happens to any of them, even coulson.

well it already felt like Shield didn't actually exist in this series.

I guess its going to become a full blown Scooby Doo/A-Team show for season 2. it will also be a great excuse for the lower budget it will have to have season 2. if they are gonna do a second season there is no point continuing to make a show as expensive as this if its going to get low ratings.

right now its actually a natural interpretation, not a racial sterotype.

1) are the drugs illegal? - if its illegal to take the drugs then you can argue the book continues to support a negative racial stereotype. if the drugs are not illegal, then its fine, Paracetamol is drug, caffeine is a drug, society does not sees things as negatives

2) how does the protagonist use his powers? - if he uses them for negative attributes such as greed and aggression then again it re-enforce a negative stereotype. if he uses them for good does it attempt to rebut that stereotype you are concerned about?

until you've read the full book you cannot answer those questions, until you answer those questions you are being over sensitiveness over the matter. Implying you yourself may believe in the stereotype if your immediate interpretation of concept of the book this that it portrays a black protagonist as drug using criminal.
