Ultimate X-Men #93
Writer: Robert Kirkman
Artist: Harvey Tolibao
First thing’s first… Nipple-less Phoenix?
And I won’t even go near her hairless, genitalia-less… um… woman’s trousers area.
With that out of the way (and believe me, it’s hard to ignore), Robert Kirkman wraps up his ‘Ultimate X-Men’ run (after 27 issues) with a serviceable, but flat finale.
I would love to get the inside story on what really transpired during Kirkman’s run. The last year’s worth of stories have been so pedestrian and lacking in passion compared to his first year that I wonder if something happened behind the scenes that caused Kirkman to mail it in. Something like Alan Coletie of ‘Heroes’ fame signing on to write the next ‘Ultimate X-Men’ arc perhaps?
From Marvel (preview): “It’s Robert Kirkman’s final issue of Ultimate X-Men – and he’s going out with a bang! Has the worst happened? Has Apocalypse triumphed? If so, there is only one force in the universe with the power to end his iron fisted reign. But it is a power of such magnitude that its slightest misuse could bring about the end of all things!” On sale April 30, 2008.
