Format: Paperback
One thing that was always impressive about the X-Men was that it was one of the few superhero comic books where the definitive villain popped up in the first issue. Of course we are talking about Magneto the Mutant Master of Magneticism. The same thing was true for "Ultimate X-Men," where Marvel essentially restarted the series in contemporary times, reconceptualizing some of the core elements. For example, this time around the original X-Men combine Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Beast and Iceman from the first lineup with Storm and Colossus from the second (with Wolverine being recruited from the dark side so that he can appear on every cover of the trade paperback reprints). The result is a lot of familiar items are condensed into each story arc, which is then collected into a trade paperback.
"The Return of the King" is Volume 6 in the "Ultimate X-Men" series and the title, of course, refers to Magneto. In the first volume in the series the X-Men fought Magneto and not only defeated him, but also apparently killed him. However, this turned out to be one of Professor X's mind games; he convinced Magneto that he was Erik Lensheer, unaware of his past life as a mutant terrorist. When the Brotherhood of Mutants discovers Magneto is still alive they find him and remove the mental blocks Xavier had placed in his minds. We are now back to the beginning in many ways, except this time around both Magneto and all the homo sapiens are very wary. In fact, the Bush Administration has Nick Fury and S.H.I.E.L.D. going after all the mutants, including the X-Men. Since they already have Xavier in custody, stopping Magneto is going to be a problem.
Actually, stopping Magneto is always a problem.

Format: Paperback
The first three Ultimate X-men titles were excellent - beautifully drawn with compelling stories and characterisation. Parts 4 and 5 however failed to live up to the series' early form and saw a botched introduction of the Phoenix while the fifth book was completely wasted on a pointless and incredibly dull Ultimates crossover.
Volume 6, The Return of The King, sees the series shift back into top gear with the return of Magneto and the Brotherhood of Mutants. An engaging story, sharp dialogue and some great artwork make this a worthy addition to the Ultimate X-men series.
Mark Millar's six volume run has concluded on a high and the ending neatly paves the way for a new writer to take over. We can only hope that the next run lives up to the high standards set by this excellent volume.

Format: Paperback
Concluding the mini-trilogy started in Volumes 5 and 6, Return of the King, details the battle between the X-Men and Magneto's Brotherhood of Mutants. The X-Men have defeated Magneto once before, but that was with their leader and mentor, Professor Xavier, who's now been locked up by the U.S. government...
Volume 6 concludes nearly all of the storylines that had been running - the Cyclops-Wolverine incident in the Savage Land is one, plus one fairly major angle form volume 4 which they'd ignored since then.
The artwork in this volume is a drastic improvement on the mess of Volumes 3-5, and overall it improves the whole feel of the comic. Nerds of the original X-Men comic books will enjoy the Ultimate version of Forge, whilst Nightcrawler and others make their return. Surprisingly the Ultimates don't show up much, considering they were prominant in Volume 5.
Overall this is a improvement on the previous Ultimate X-Men volumes. However, the main storyline seems to finish about halfway through, leaving the last few chapters of the book to fizzel out in a somewhat anticlimatic fashion.
Volume 6 still doesn't hold a torch to the first two Ultimate X-Men titles, and don't even mention Ultimate Spider-Man. However, if you enjoyed the series so far you'll like this, and now it's completed most of the story arcs, we can look forward to something new in Volume 7, Blockbuster.

After beast lets it slip that Magneto is alive and as a result The Ultimates are after the X-Men. Magneto has a plan to destroy the world (as always)and the X-Men have to stop him with out the help of Xavier. Nightcrawler returns and Rogue joins the X-Men. Beutifull art as always from Kubert and the story is exciting and entertaining. A real page turner and definate must have
