Ultimates 2 . . . As much as I am excited for Avengers: Age of Ultron, I wish Avengers 2 was based off this story (combined with Under Siege from way back in the day). Basically, I want to see a big battle between heroes and an actual team of super-villains we haven't seen in the Marvel Cinematic Universe yet. And this volume of Mark Millar's and Bryan Hitch's Ultimates has just that. It may be a slow build, but those last few issues are well worth the wait. And that eight-page spread in issue 13 is glorious!
Basically, plot synopsis: whereas Ultimates volume 1 had the team struggling to be more than just a publicity stunt, here they have proven their worth to the military and begin being used on international missions that suit America's interests. The idea of super soldiers spreads to our allies in other countries as well. Naturally, this movement upsets certain governments, and so a coalition secretly forms and begins their own infiltration and sabotage of the Ultimates.
