Format: Paperback
Iron Man fights Hulk after a failed experiment to infect Banner's blood with nanotech to control the Hulk genes. But the fight is cut short as another failed experiment, the Leader (dude with a big head), tries to take the blood of both Iron Man and Hulk!

Warren Ellis' Marvel work is very hit and miss and unfortunately Ultimate Human is one of his lesser books. This short four issue book is really a bridge between Mark Millar's first two Ultimates volumes where in Volume 1 Hulk goes on a rampage in Manhattan killing 300 people and Volume 2 where he's imprisoned, facing trial and a death sentence (by the by, Millar's Ultimates run is well worth checking out if you haven't read it).

There's also not as much Hulk/Iron Man in the book as I'd like. A whole issue (25% of the book) is devoted to the Leader's origin which was reallllly boring. Then the book comes to a swift and unsatisfying conclusion - basically the old Bond villain nonsense.

The artwork in the book is quite poor. Looking at it feels like I'm looking at the pages through a window with water pouring down it; it's very unpleasant to see page after page of.

While I usually love Warren Ellis' work, this is definitely one of his weaker efforts. If you're looking for a better Ellis/Marvel book I suggest Ultimate Iron Man: Armor Wars or the Ultimate Galactus Trilogy instead.

This is a good filler of plot lines fills in small sections of the ultimate universe but I'd be dubious about its validity if you want to complete your collection buy it but I'm not entirely sure if all will enjoy it it but it was a bit drab unfortunately had good promise but a tad boring

i quite liked this book, and was not really expecting to, although it is advertised as Ultimate Iron Man and Ultimate Hulk Fighting, that is really only a small part of the story, and the main story revolves around a top man in MI6 and his resistance to the plans for the European Superhuman Initiative seen in Ultimates 2. an experiment is carried out based on tiny amounts of Hulk blood found in Manhattan, and a small sample of Stark's DNA (that makes his body a biological computer) the experiment goes wrong, and Stark and Banner must be kidnapped to get larger samples to correct the mistake.
a good read, and very good art, and for the price, a must have for any ultimate universe affictionados

Format: Hardcover
I have recently gotten into comic books/graphic novels, after only previously skimming through the occasional comic lying around in a friends house, or at another family members house.

I recently purchased the essential marvel saga books to get a more clear idea of the marvel universe, upon reading these 2 books, I asked a few people to recommend books in the marvel universe for me; Many recommended the "Ultimate Marvel" books.

If like me you have not read anything from the ultimate marvel universe, then you will know that there is now a lot to choose from! I did a little read over the background for the ultimate marvel universe and then ordered 2 books, this and Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk.

This was by far my favourite of the two. As I have grown older my tastes have grown, I can no longer sit and read in amazement 10-20 solid pages of fighting. So I was pleased with this book, for the fact that, yes The Hulk and Iron Man fight, but it is a smaller part of the story.

(From here may contain minor spoilers!)

The story itself focuses on Bruce Banner coming to Tony Stark in seek of a cure, using nanotechnology to (basically) modify Bruce's blood to prevent transformation into the hulk.

Whilst this is going on we see "The Leader" (no longer Samuel Sterns from mainstream continuity, but an ex MI6 agent Pete Wisdom) who is bound to a wheelchair, and wearing a neck support, as he is unable to hold up his head due to his change into the leader; anyone who has read hulk comics before, or seen the 90's cartoon show, will know of the leaders enlarged Brain/Head.

The Leader wishes to use the blood of both men to improve himself further (super strength etc...). The cause of his change and his initial motives I won't spoil here.

Format: Hardcover
Cary Nord does a brilliant job here. His art is beautifully detailed and expressive, it makes the charaters pop out of the page and engrose you. Unfortunately, the story is really lacking in comparison. Maybe I'm expecting too much, but I just felt it was a bit like a soap-opera/sci-fi episode. Don't get me wrong, it's not terrible, i've read a lot worse, but it's not the best. I have to compare it to Extremis or World War Hulk, both of which I'd rate 5 stars and my score of 3 comes from a 4 for the artwork and a 2.5 for the story.
