Ultimates 3 #4
Writer: Jeph Loeb
Artist: Joe Madureira
Four months since the last issue.
I mean who remembers what’s going on after four months?
And after such a long gap, is it possible to not use dialogue from ‘The Terminator’ like, “Come with me if you want to live.”
So excuse my while I reread the previous issues.
Hmmm… Testosterone on overdrive. Psycho Hawkeye shoots Wolverine repeatedly. Captain America admonishes Hawkeye for cursing (but not for shooting Wolverine). Cool Tyrannosaurus Rex. Unbelievably stupid Black Panther twist.
Wow. This really is a crappy series (and yes, Wolverine does appear, uttering perhaps the best line of the issue, “The @#$%ing Juggernaut!?).
But the best news is that the Ultimate universe as a whole may finally be coming to a close in a few months with ‘Ultimatum.’
That is if the next issue of ‘Ultimates 3’ ever comes out.
From Marvel: “Who rules the Savage Land? Who could possibly challenge Magneto’s authority? How about the Ultimates with special guest Wolverine! Plus: back in NYC, the Wasp makes a discovery that will change everything!” On sale February 19, 2008.
