"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.Read more ›
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.
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.

The sixth volume of Ultimate X-Men, and possibly the best so far. Capturing everything about Mark Millar's style that is great and giving an excellent send off to the creator of... Read morePublished on 27 May 2009 by James T. Bebbington
After the dissapointment of "Ultimate War" this book really got me interested in the Ultimate X-Men story again. This is probably the best of the books since the first one. Read morePublished on 11 July 2005 by OldScotland
