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.
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.
Man, I can't praise this collection enough. Is just TOO GOOD!!!!! The story and art are SO over the top.
This book is full of action and excitement that is almost a movie. After this, I'm afraid I might not enjoy The Avengers movie as much as I know I would normally do. I mean, this book is so rich in the writing that is almost a screenplay. Mark Millar has become one of my favorite writers from now on.
Whom else could turn Thor into a crazy hippy? Who could make the perfect man, the perfect catch, in real life so boring and possesive? Whom else could make Tony Stark heart broken? W-O-W!!!
Is this book just another paperback? NO!!!!! A simple paperback doesn't normally come with so much extra material: The writer and artist talking about every issue (and letting us know some easter eggs in the conversation), cover gallery, unfinished art-work gallery (pencils and ink pages), scripts, and a fantastic HUGE spread of beautiful art on the final issue.
Marvel has done the impossible. They just took my former love for DC and stole my heart.
If you don't have this collection... get it!!!!!

Amazon did a great job getting this to me fast and on time. My only problem unfortunately is as a comic book fan. This story is not one of the best and is barely viewed as okay.Published on January 9, 2013 by DFA_13
