The final issue of Ultimate Comics Ultimates before the start of Cataclysm and I must say that it did not disappoint. It does feel a little clustered with all the information packed in. Probably the only downside to the whole “Ultimates Disassembled” story arc. I’ll try to avoid spoiling as much as possible so you can enjoy reading it and be shocked. IT has a lot of fights and interesting dialog that not only moves the story forward but also explains Ultimate Kang’s origins and motivation. So this issue is laying the groundwork for Cataclysm which will change the face of Ultimate Marvel as a whole and we see that for the Ultimate Marvel Universe to survive, the Ultimates had to de disassembled (pun intended i know). So the Ultimate emerge victorious and victory is won, but the Ultimate Marvel will suffer from their interference. The art is a little clustered and confusing at times but you have to read each page slowly to fully grasp the implications. This single issue pretty much rewrites the history of Ultimate Marvel and Ultimate Reed Richards. Pretty much it explains WHY Reed Richards went the path he went after the Ultimatum Wave. This is major to say the least. Joshua Hale Fialkov have done a good job in laying the groundwork for Bendis’ Cataclysm.
A good read if you read all Disassembled issues from 25-30. Let’s wait and see what Cataclysm brings
