    Default Ultimates #4 - Review/Spoilers

    Are. You. Serious?!? Another amazing issue!

    Firstly, Adam's and Carol's 'Mark XIII' exploration armor. That armor is sick! Rocafort and Brown were killin' it as usual.

    A certain familiar face popping up caught me by surprise and ended up being central to keeping the Ultimates to what their mission statement is. That whole sequence left me in awe. Just masterful work by Ewing.

    Blue Marvel fans will be thrilled with this one!

    And that ending...wow.

    Al Ewing is brining in the big guns in this series and I am so hyped for it.

    A-Force, All-New Inhuman, All-New All-Different Avengers, Captain America: Sam Wilson, Captain Marvel, Ms. Marvel, New Avengers, The Ultimates, and Weirdworld.

    I loved the issue, but the ending wasn't mindblowing. With what everything that happen in SW it isn't surprising to me.

    Who was that on the final page?

    I really enjoyed this issue- it had great scope, and you can tell Ewing loves writing Blue Marvel

    Loved this issue. For someone who hasn't yet read the original Blue Marvel stuff, I was glad to get this portion of his origin told. I'm looking forward to where this is all going.

    Eternity. The universe. Basically the universe is trying to ice our heroes.

    Ewing's filling in a lot of gaps from the Adam: Legend of the Blue Marvel Mini. The reveals here and there are adding so much to Adam's overall story. Yet, we still haven't gotten to Adrienne, so you know there's more to come.

    A slower issue than the previous three, but still enough to keep me fascinated with what Ewing is heading towards with this series.

    This book is so damn boring. Hickman's sciencey issues always kept me engaged, this makes me want to take a nap.
    We need better comics

    Loved it. The work Ewing has been putting into Blue Marvel continues to be incredibly satisfying, and yes, those armors looked awesome. I also liked how Adam basically went, "Marvel and Marvel, come with me. If your name never contained the word Marvel, stay in the ship."

    I loved it, many tears were shed.
    I really dug Ewing adding a lot of LSD metaphors and symbolism to Anti-Man's origins story.

    I have a bad feeling that Ewing never read Cullen Bunn's Deadpool Killology and is building up to the characters finding out they are in a comic book, thinking no character has done it before.

    Another amazing issue! I loved the armors, the backstory of filling in Adam and Connor's past, but also the huge ending with Eternity and Galactus. It's going to be so cool to see Galactus actually fight the Ultimates.
