5.0 out of 5 stars Marvel comics don't get better than this 19 Aug 2011
By J Witts
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Ultimates brings The Avengers (Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and Thor) to the Ultimate Marvel universe and the result is one of the best titles Marvel have ever published in my opinion.

This book reboots the Avengers and starts right from the beginning, so no knowledge of the original Marvel universe is needed. What Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch have achieved here is really quite awesome, reading like a big-budget Hollywood movie. The characters and plot are grounded in real world settings and much more believable than the original Avengers. Yes, its a story about super heroes who dress up in crazy costumes but none the less it has a realistic, gritty quality which is quite amazing considering the subject. Millar has managed to give the characters real depth and Hitch's artwork has a photo-realistic quality rarely seen in comics.

Whether you are already a fan of Marvel or you're someone looking to try comics for the first time then you really can't do much better than this.

Brilliant.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent for comic newcomers 12 Dec 2011
Format:Paperback
I've used this book to succesfully introduce a half dozen people to comic books, so that's the context I'll recommend it in. This story takes the flagship characters of Marvel's biggest superteam, the Avengers, and introduces new, modern versions of them. This means that you don't need to know any back story or comic trivia to get the most out of this book. It also doesn't hurt that Bryan Hitch's art style tends to be clear and dynamic, which makes action sequences easy to follow. It reads quite like the type of Hollywood blockbuster that the Avengers will soon appear in. If you arrived on this page AFTER seeing that movie, then the characters might be a little different with the ones you saw on-screen. However, don't let that put you off, as this book (and it's sequel) were a major influence on the recent Marvel movies.

And, for the handful of existing comic fans that haven't read this, you absolutely should too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great! 31 Dec 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
What actually makes this Avengers' series interesting is the mere manifestation of the avengers as superheroes with real everyday life problems. The storyline is well written and artwork is amazing. Recommended!
