Layout/Flow - 5/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 5/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?



Verdict - 5

- I really enjoy the Ultimate Universe and the twists Marvel adds to these characters. It's also good to read a comic that you know will have lasting and permanent consequences. This issue concludes the United We Stand arc after Captain America becomes president. The beginning of the issue threw me for a second because it had appeared the war was over with HYDRA, while in Ultimate Comics Ultimates #17 - United We Stand Part Two: Hydra War One, Cap was still fighting a mind controlled Thor and his son Modi. We eventually learn it's all a mind game. The issue continues the battle and Modi explains that Steve has always wanted the perfect America under his control, basically a Military Dictatorship. Cap fights the mind control and the Ultimates are eventually able to defeat Modi and free those under his control. There is a small preview of the next villain in the final panels, I'm not sure who it is but there is some type of reactor and you see two glowing eyes and a smile in what appears to be space. Guess I'll have to wait and see next month.
