Ultimate Human takes place in-between The Ultimates: Ultimate Collection and The Ultimates 2: Ultimate Collection. Bruce Banner is a slave to his anger. Every time he gets upset or emotional the Hulk, a brutish monster that he transforms into, is unleashed. Bruce seeks help from the only person he can, Tony Stark, better known as Iron Man. Their plan, *minor spoilers for the first issue*, involves using nanites to suppress the Hulk cells so he can't transform. Little do they both know that a sinister Leader is pursing Dr. Banner and Tony, relentless in his goal to capture them.
Ellis's characterization of the two is spot on. Tony plays the drunk yet genius drunk millionare as usual. I felt myself sympathetic to Bruce Banner though.Read more ›
Eventually, the main attraction comes about: Iron Man and the Hulk go at it.
What more do you need to know?
Written by Warren Ellis and illustrations by Cary Nord. His artwork is arguably the biggest attraction to this fun yet very light piece.
CHARACTERS/DIALOGUE: B minus; STORY/PLOTTING/EDITING: B minus; ARTISTIC PRESENTATION: B to B plus; ACTION SCENES: B minus to B; WHEN READ: end of January 2013; OVERALL GRADE: B minus to B.
The entire book is really a bridge between Mark Millar's books "The Ultimates Vol 1" and "Vol 2" where in Vol 1 Hulk goes on a rampage in Manhattan killing 300 people and Vol 2 where he is imprisoned, facing trial and a surefire death sentence. If you've read Millar's run you'll know how that pans out and I highly recommend those books over this weak place holder.
The artwork in the book is also really poor, looking at it feels like I'm looking at art through a window with water pouring down it, it's very unpleasant. While I like Ellis, this is one of his weaker efforts. If you're looking for a better Warren Ellis/Marvel book I suggest "Armour Wars". "Ultimate Human" is definitely only for the fans.
