More About the Author

Along with Brian Michael Bendis, Mark Millar has been one of the key writers for Marvel Comics in the 21st century. After proving himself in the '90s as a talent to watch while writing for DC Comics and the UK comic 2000AD, his arrival to Marvel came at a time when Ultimate Spider-Man had just shot up the sales charts. It was in this environment that Millar made his first major contribution to Marvel with Ultimate X-Men, as Millar integrated forty years' worth of X-Men history, characters and lore into a solid two-year run, making the companion title to Ultimate Spider-Man every bit the creative and commercial success. Next up was The Ultimates, a new rendering of the Avengers that was to continue building on the success of the Ultimate line. He and artist Bryan Hitch pulled it all off in spades: The Ultimates and its sequel, Ultimates 2, were ensconced at the top of the sales charts every month; what's more, they were critical successes, as well. Meanwhile, Millar was invited to enter the regular Marvel Universe to take a stab at two of its most iconic characters: Spider-Man and Wolverine. Paired with industry heavyweights to draw his stories -- Terry Dodson on Marvel Knights Spider-Man and John Romita Jr. on Wolverine -- Millar brought the same fast-paced and cleverly constructed plots with which his Ultimate fans were already familiar. Amid building a small library of Millarworld indie comic books -- including the titles Chosen and Wanted, the latter of which was turned into a Hollywood blockbuster starring Angelina Jolie -- he managed to write Civil War, the epic seven-issue miniseries that definitively reshaped the landscape of Marvel's heroes. Kick-A**, a Marvel Icon project done in tandem with John Romita Jr., made an impressive impact on the sales chart before also being adapted for a major motion picture. In addition, Millar has reunited with Civil War artist Steve McNiven in both the pages of Wolverine and their creator-owned book Nemesis.

This book is a fun follow up to the Ultimates: Ultimate Collection. I think a lot of creative teams would purposely try to take the original and make everything better, but this collection never really felt like that. These stories continue the character development not relive them.

The plot of the book (without spoilers) is the team battles an international terrorist group of super soldiers, while discovering one their own is a double agent. Hank Pym's depression fueled adventures serves as comic relief, the drawings of his gross apartment still make me laugh after several readings.

I highly recommend this volume to fans of the first; Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch obviously worked very hard and put a lot of care in to telling an fun action packed story.

This was a great follow up to the first Ultimates graphic novel, and it pushes the envelope further with its portrayal of popular characters. Cap is not the upstanding citizen you expect him to be, and Tony Stark is perfectly willing to kill if it compromises the mission. Throw away your Avengers perceptions... this GN will blow them out of the water.

Great art. Great story.

One minor complaint: This trade has a large 8-page pullout that's gorgeous. I like to pull mine out. However, if you do pull it, you'll pull 2 pages of the story out on the back of the 4th & 5th pages of the pull-out. Very disappointing.
