Verdict - 3.4

- After the Divided We Fall & United We Stand story arc it's nice to see a Marvel .1 issue. Normally these are a good change for readers to catch up or start reading a series. While the cover is a simple pose of Iron Man, Thor and Captain America, it gives a good feel of the events that recently took place. I enjoyed the art and color in this issue for the most part and only had some gripes with facial expressions. The problem with this issue is really the final pages. The issue takes place as a disgruntle employee from a Nuclear Facility goes on a rampage and the Ultimates have to stop him. You get to see the current Ultimates in action, but the whole point of the issue is that Captain America decides at the end of the issue he needs a new team. I understand they will need new members as the roster is pretty thin now, but I would have rather had a .1 issue that explored some of the new characters and their backgrounds, rather than we just get to see them next issue. It's not a bad story or issue, but I would have liked something different. I'll have to wait until next issue to see if it turns into a filler of what the .1 should have been.
