This book is a perfect follow up to the Avengers movie. It's loud and dumb at times with huge action scenes, but there are smaller character moments. True it's not as perfect as the previous Mark Millar Ultimates volumes 1 & 2 but it's certainly a return to form after the disappointing Jeph Loeb versions. Lovely "cinematic"use of Ghost Rider,The Punisher and Blade make this a Marvel Movie Buffs Dream come true.

It's just OK 26 July 2012
By Graham G. Garrison - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
OK, time for my review of the Ultimate Avengers Omnibus by Mark Millar, which was my last Omni purchased.

I ordered this Omni a couple of weeks ago from amazon.com for only $41. I figured that was a decent enough deal to splurge on and see if I enjoyed the book. I am a fan of Ultimates Vol 1 & 2 by Millar so I was interested to see how this volume compared to the others. First off, this is one odd looking Omi compared to the rest of the line. The white DJ and book really stick out against the sea of black/red Omnis on your bookshelf, but I don't mind that. It's just an odd choice by Marvel, and I'm not sure of the reasoning behind the color change.

Honestly, I felt the stories were "just OK". It was more like reading a fan fiction serial starring the Ultimates more than anything else. The first story-arc featuring Captain America vs. the Red Skull was the best of the book in my opinion, which really isn't saying a lot. I would give this arc a C+. The remainder of the book features Nick Fury and his black ops Avengers team fighting Blade & a gang of vampires (ugh) and getting caught up in a battle between a couple of Ghost Riders (ugh). The book concluded with the Ultimate Avengers vs. New Ultimates mini-series which was also a bit of a letdown, although better than the previous two arcs. I was interested in this last arc to get some background detail on the upcoming "Death of Ultimate Spider-Man" Omni, but honestly, as others have pointed out, you DO NOT need to read the entire UA v NU book/arc to get the Death of Spidey backstory. There is, literally, only about 3-4 pages of relevant content to the Spidey story. The whole DOSM tie-in felt terribly shoehorned in to the rest of the UA v NU plot.

As far as characters go, don't expect your normal lineup of classic Avengers such as Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk and Giant Man. A few show up in bits and pieces, and Captain America does appear semi-regularly. This is a book filled with second stringers: The Punisher, Blade, Ghost Rider, War Machine, a new Black Widow, Tony Stark's older twin brother, Hawkeye, a "Nerd Hulk" cloned from the original but with Banner's brain in control, and some second rate Thor knock-off character appears for a few pages. It's a very weird mix of characters.

In summary, this was an OK book when read purely as escapist literature. Think of it as "summer popcorn movie" type enjoyment, but don't expect to be blown away by anything. It's also a quick read. It only took me 4 sittings of reading ~45 mins ea to finish the entire volume. I would give the book a C overall. My biggest disappointment with it was that I hoped for more, seeing as it was written by Millar and starring the Ultimates.

Millar continues the Ultimates as it should be done... 26 Nov. 2012
By S. Horn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Mark Millar wrote The Ultimates and The Ultimates 2, which when read together, is one of the best comic book stories of all time. When The Ultimates 3 came out, Jeph Loeb and Joe Madureira took the Millar (and Bryan Hitch) blueprint and did things that cannot be forgiven, effectively leaving the book and story for dead. To make matters worse, this led to Jeph Loeb's Ultimatum, which destroyed the Ultimate universe as we knew it, bringing on new things once again. But the Ultimates were still not up to par, becoming, no joke, Ultimate Comics: New Ultimates, which featured such Z-list characters like Ka-Zar of the Savage Land and the Squadron Supreme character, Power Princess. What was Marvel to do?

Give the reigns back to Millar of course, allowing him to work with some of the best artists in the industry, and using whatever ideas and characters he wanted. He chose to feature 2 of the coolest characters, Hawkeye, and of course, Ultimate Nick Fury. They put together a black ops team called Project Avengers, featuring a cast of some very interesting characters. Essentially, it was Millar creating versions of existing Ultimates/Avengers characters, but putting his own, demented spin on them: Gregory Stark is Tony's older brother, essentially a jerk without any moral code of his own, who wears all white suits, and supplies the team and organization with weapons and science that no one else dare to. Of those weapons, we get an Ultimate version of War Machine, a reformed version of a former villain renamed Red Wasp, and a genetically cloned Hulk, with the brain of Bruce Banner and the brute strength of Hulk, codenamed Nerd Hulk, and The Spider, a demon clone of Spider-Man. The stories also give us Ultimate versions of Red Skull, Punisher, Ghost Rider, and Blade. The story is 4 separate stories, put together in a Marvel Omnibus edition. Let's look at each story below...

Ultimate Comics: Avengers (drawn by Carlos Pacheco)
This story brings together the characters listed above, as Hawkeye and Nick Fury open Project Avengers, enlisting Gregory Stark, War Machine, Red Wasp, Nerd Hulk, The Spider, and a new Black Widow, who happens to be Nick Fury's ex-wife. Their first mission is to track down Red Skull, who popped back up on SHEID's radar. Captain America plays a big role in this story too, when he finds out that Red Skull is his son. A son that went rogue, killed hundreds of people, and carved his own face off, hence the "Red Skull" name. Violence ensues, but Nick Fury makes his plan of retaking the top spot at SHIELD known to Hawkeye, and Project Avengers is here to stay.

Ultimate Comics: Avengers 2 (drawn by Lenil Yu)
The second story continues the over-arcing story of the main characters, while introducing The Punisher into the Ultimate universe. He gets strong-armed into joining the Avengers, being fitted with a new uniform that resembles Captain America. The other new Avenger introduced and strong-armed into service is Tyrone Cash, Bruce Banner's mentor, and the first Hulk. They join Hawkeye, War Machine, and Black Widow, on a mission to stop Ghost Rider, who is killing high profile government agents and rich people around the country with ties to Satan.

Ultimate Comics: Avengers 3 (drawn by Steve Dillon)
This story sees the Avengers fighting vampires, introducing Blade and a new Daredevil. This is the weakest story of the series, and an attempt to join the vampire craze that has hit entertainment recently, with True Blood, Twilight, Vampire Diaries, and many others. There is enough to keep interest high enough to not derail the story though.

Ultimate Comics: Avengers vs. New Ultimates (drawn by Lenil Yu)
The real treat with the final story of the omnibus is seeing Nick Fury's black ops team fighting The Ultimates, whose roster includes Iron Man, Captain America, and Thor. Certain characters' true intentions are made clear, and not everyone makes it out alive.

The overall Ultimates story is continued on very nicely by Mark Millar, who never should have left this book in the first place. In the hands of Jeph Loeb, the Ultimates became boring and over-saturated characters. The art was top notch, even though Dillon's pencils on the 3rd part seemed out of place with the rest. It's surprising that it took this long, but characters like Punisher, Ghost Rider, and Blade finally make their first Ultimate Universe appearances. No, it's not as good as The Ultimates or The Ultimates 2, but if you enjoyed those stories, you are surely going to like what Millar has up his sleeve this time around.

Ultimate Millar/Yu Collection 27 April 2012
By Alexander P. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Spoilers, probably.

This is the collected hardcover omnibus of four Ultimate Comics titles; Ultimate Comics Avengers Vol. 1: The Next Generation, Ultimate Comics Avengers Vol. 2: Crime and Punishment, Blade Versus the Avengers. Writer, Mark Millar (Ultimate Comics Avengers Vol3), and Ultimate Comics Avengers vs. New Ultimates.

The stronger of the four segments are Vol. 2 & 4, as they are drawn by the industry's best: Lienil Francis Yu. Millar and Yu previously released Superior, and are currently publishing Supercrooks #1 Mark Millar Leinil Francis Yu 2012 Comic. I highly recommend all Millarworld comics.

The stories feature the Black Ops/WetWorks unit of S.H.I.E.L.D... where the public team, The Ultimates, can't be seen and when the jobs are just too dirty, Shield sends in their "kill squad," The Avengers. The team roster varies book to book, with members frequently dying or escaping (similar to the Thunderbolts, many Avengers in the Ultimate Universe are recruited against their will). Plot points jump from the reinvention of the Red Skull in search of the ultimate weapon, to seemingly supernatural elementals out for vengence, to vampires (done right for a superhero comic who's focus is "heroes in a real-world environment,"), the underlying subplot that ties each story arc together is the RISE of Ultimate Nick Fury.

You may remember that Nick Fury was absent from the Ultimatum (Marvel Premiere Editions), thanks to the events of Ultimate Power... He was stranded off-world, and enjoyed a stint in re-creating S.H.I.E.L.D. in Squadron Supreme: Power to the People (v. 1)... But he was retrieved to deal with Magneto's extinction-level tempertantrum, and seems back for good. However, he's at the bottom of the food chain now and in each subsequent story-arc in this collection, you seem Fury climbing the ladder he fell from, which all accumulates in Avengers vs. New Ultimates...

Additionally, this collection of stories features Mark Millar's Ultimate-original characters. That is to say, characters created soley for Ultimate Comics. Tyrone Cash (my personal fav), Gregory Stark, The Spider, Kid Daredevil, and others add to the rich tapestry and realism of Ultimate Avengers.

My personal favorite aspect of the Ultimate Avengers Omnibus is how Mark Millar performs damage control of many problems created by other Ultimate writers. For example, Orson Scott Card told us that Ultimate Tony Stark was made up of 100% brain cells, and could regrow limbs at will, in Ultimate Comics Iron Man Ultimate Collection... Jeph Loeb told us that Ultimate Thor was going to talk like 616 Thor because... ugh... just because! in Ultimates 3: Who Killed The Scarlet Witch? (v. 1).... And in a few panels, both these issues are resolved seemingly effortlessly! Thank you, Mark Millar, for fixing that.

The last word I'd have on this collection is that it is a must have. They really set the stage for the rest of the Ultimate Comics line, but even if you don't plan on reading further, the Ultimate Avengers Omnibus offers you a complete story with an easily accessible begining, interesting middle, and satisfying ending.

Support MillarWorld, for the good of comics.

Coming from a Mark Millar fan - this is NOT the next Ultimates 26 May 2012
By mkronck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
First: I am a big Mark Millar fan. I confess to not reading a single one of these issues as they came out, as I was waiting for some massive collection like this. Needless to say, I was pretty excited when this came out.

The first arc with Pacheco on art is pretty good - a solid "B+" rating. It wrapped up a little too quickly with a few story holes at the end, but it did bring a good amount of fun and exciting moments. The first few issues where the assembled Avengers have to capture Captain America were really awesome...however, I find myself thinking that it was stupid that they had to catch him in the first place (Captain A & the Avengers were both going after the same guy...they wanted him out of their way...?) ..... it seemed a weak plot reason to capture Captain America. But I didn't read too much into it at that point, I just hung on for the ride. I'll note that Pacheco's art quality varied A LOT throughout the series. Some issues were outstanding, while others looked mightily rushed and sloppy. I did still feel that classic Millar "wow" factor several times throughout this arc, however.

After the first arc, the story could have gone either way for me. Unfortunately, it only went downwards.

The second arc features Ghost Rider, of whom I am NOT a fan. Ghost Rider fans may enjoy this... however I think he is one of the worst characters in comic existence. So glean what you may from that. I am also NOT a fan of Leinel Yu's artwork. His old X-Men stuff was phenomenal, but he has not evolved well as an artist, in my opinion. So that brought the series down for me. Again, Yu fans may enjoy this, and that aspect may be a matter of opinion. However, the story was not any comparison to what I've come to expect from Millar. After being introduced to a new "Nerd Hulk" last arc (which I thought was a decent touch)......we bring in... another Hulk? So now there are 3 Hulks. Huh. We went from one awesome Hulk to 3 Hulks (2 of which aren't that great) in only 6 issues. The conclusion to this was just dumb to me. I will say that the Punisher moments at the beginning of the arc were pretty cool though, but were not strong enough to carry the entirety of six issues.

The third arc (Ultimate Avengers 3), was just awful. I LOVE Steve Dillon's art, but it felt completely out of place here. Bringing to life the regular heroes of the Marvel Universe is not his forte (except for any and all things Punisher related...who isn't a hero...). And the whole vampire thing.....wow. I had serious trouble reading this arc through to the end. Seriously, I struggled. Blade was NOT introduced in a cool way, the enemy was a stupid concept. Everyone was getting infected, and Daredevil (and the next kid that Stick trains) were both brought in a very non-exciting fashion.

The last arc was okay. I felt the same way towards Yu's art as I did before. The story was decent, but I'll be honest, it tried to carry over a lot using characters that the first three arcs set up. Since I didn't enjoy the last two arcs at all, I really had no connection to any of the characters at this point, so I had a hard time feeling invested in the story.

I have not been a big fan of Mark Millar lately. Wanted, Kick@$$, Ultimates... those are fantastic stories. But his work of late has not been up to the very high standards he set for himself early on. This omnibus is nicely collected, and I have no complaints about the physical books themselves. Other than the first arc, I have absolutely no desire to reread the rest of this omnibus.
Block Ops Avengers 23 April 2015
By Frankie D - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
It was a cool book. The book had 4 stories. The first one was the best. Fury gets a Black Ops team and tries to rise in Shield after being demoted. His team takes on the Red Skull who is Captian America son. They get Tony Stark brother and a different Hulk called Nerd Hulk. He is more smarts than strength. Good action in this story.

The next story they have to protect people from Ghost Rider. They force Puinisher onto the team and get a homeboy drug dealing Hulk. Ghost Rider who I feel is overrated story was not bad. He was out for revenge and was right.

The third story had Blade and went on too long. Vampires were affecting superheroes and making a army. Blade is also overrated. Better in movies. Boring in comics and in this story. Pretty much they fight and at the end they kill the vampire. This was the weakest story.

The last story put the Ultimates lead by Carol Danvers up against the Avengers. This had a lot of fighting and you find out there is a traitor who is pitting both teams against each other. Injected the Hulk serum in certain people was not needed. Fury rise back to the top is complete. Hawkeye and the new Black Widow were cool in this series. War Machine kept getting beat up a lot in this book. A decent read
