    There wasn t a lot of suspense in this one, and the ending was a bit muddled simplistic even with some weird plot lines that led no where, but I still liked it Then again, I generally like anything Ellis writes and have always liked the ultimate universe.

    When a strange signal begins emitting from the Tunguska wilderness in Russia, broadcasting a message of despair and death, the X Men set off to find the source of the signal and, separately, so does Nick Fury, Captain America, and Black Widow But what they find speaks of an unprecedented danger to Earth an unstoppable force in the universe known only as the world eater, Gah Lak Tus.Warren Ellis writes what is probably the best Ultimates storyline printed yet What little I knew of Galactus be When a strange signal begins emitting from the Tunguska wilderness in Russia, broadcasting a message of despair and death, the X Men set off to find the source of the signal and, separately, so does Nick Fury, Captain America, and Black Widow But what they find speaks of an unprecedented danger to Earth an unstoppable force in the universe known only as the world eater, Gah Lak Tus.Warren Ellis writes what is probably the best Ultimates storyline printed yet What little I knew of Galactus before reading this some kind of cosmic giant that eats planets and has a messenger in the form of Silver Surfer doesn t bring to mind that compelling a story Will Ellis tell the story from the perspective of Galactus And how can you defeat something on this scale Well, first off Ellis makes the genius choice of keeping Galactus out of the story until the final chapters, making him the primary reason for all of the events of the book while not appearing It s brilliant.So over the course of the three books the threat of Galactus is built up superbly In the first, Ultimate Nightmare , the X Men and some of the Ultimates descend under the barren Russian land of Tunguska to discover a series of failed Russian super soldiers who ve become monsters over the years This was probably the best book of the three as it reads like a claustrophobic horror or an early Ridley Scott film in the vein of Alien Artist Trevor Hairsine does a stellar job with the artwork too Ultimate Secret takes the story further with a kind of Independence Day type storyline of an alien race trying to cripple humanity s technological progress and make Earth into a kind of sacrifice for Galactus Captain Marvel makes an appearance and there are lots of cool action scenes in the desert and space involving the Fantastic Four and the Ultimates, made even better with artist Steve McNiven s always excellent work.Mark Millar and John Romita Jnr create the one shot issue Ultimate Vision which sets up the final book Ultimate Extinction nicely, introducing the age old space messenger Vision and explaining Galactus before he begins approaching Earth Ultimate Extinction is pure superhero awesome ness Of course Galactus is stopped but how he s stopped is brilliant, using all of the main Marvel superheroes in a concerted effort to defeat the world eater once and for all Artist Brandon Peterson draws an incredible two pages of art showing Galactus downfall that is wonderfully cinematic and magnificent.I ve been a fan of Warren Ellis for years but he really went the distance with this book, pulling out all the stops to tell the best Ultimates story that s ever been published He masterfully brings all of the elements over the course of three books and makes the ultimate villain an ultimate plot device for some amazing storytelling and action Some writers struggle to write decent endings, Ellis effortlessly manages them every time, and this book is no exception How Xavier and Jean Grey deal with Galactus is genius, as is Nick Fury s final word.Any superhero comics fan or Ultimates fan needs to read this It s another feather in the cap for Warren Ellis as well as being one of the best superhero books ever written Galactically recommended

    This collection is a great example of the strengths of the Ultimate Universe line of comics The world is a relatively small and new one, so creators can craft a huge Event like this trilogy and involve just about every major character in the world without the field feeling too crowded At the same time, creators in this line can use the names of established Marvel characters but take the concepts in new directions, which Ellis does beautifully with Gah Lak Tus itself longtime Marvel fans know This collection is a great example of the strengths of the Ultimate Universe line of comics The world is a relatively small and new one, so creators can craft a huge Event like this trilogy and involve just about every major character in the world without the field feeling too crowded At the same time, creators in this line can use the names of established Marvel characters but take the concepts in new directions, which Ellis does beautifully with Gah Lak Tus itself longtime Marvel fans know exactly what it is and what it does, so we get the threat sooner than new readers and the characters themselves , but Ellis makes some surprising changes that keep us on our toes Readers interested in checking out this collection should be familiar with the history of the Ultimate Universe preceding it, but they don t have to know anything about any other comics.The trilogy here is a bit long, and with only a few key plot points in each issue, I imagine it was terribly frustrating when it was released an issue at a time, but the deliberate pace works very well in a collected format The first story arc, Ultimate Nightmare, is a haunted house horror story with a few Avengers and a few X Men exploring a spooky abandoned government facility, and the shadowy artwork by Hairsine and Epting draw out all the creepy aspects of the story The second arc, Ultimate Secret, is atraditional sci fi tale, with characters using science to zap aliens, and it is still tense but a bitlighthearted, and it s the kind of thing that Ellis does really well There is a brief interlude for the origin of the Ultimate version of The Vision, and my hate for John Romita Jr s art is so strong that I couldn t really appreciate Millar s story, although I do appreciate the way it closes off possible solutions to the central problem until destruction seems completely inevitable Finally, Ultimate Extinction brings thingsin line with a traditional Marvel superhero story, and while I dislike Peterson s art choices lots of unnecessary lines and cross hatching, very distracting , I do like the appearances of Ultimate versions of Misty Knight, Moondragon, and other characters, and even if the big climax is a little cuter than I wanted, it s still a creative solution that justifies the presence of the enormous cast of characters.As far as I know, this story didn t have much of an impact on the Ultimate Universe after it was printed If you skip it while you re assembling a collection of Ultimate Universe comics, you ll survive But you ll be missing out on an action packed sci fi story that honors your favorite characters while introducing you to new ones It s worth your time

    I really enjoyed this collection by my fav writer Warren Ellis You even get one Mark Miller story thrown in which ends on a depressing note becausehe s Mark Miller and hates happiness But let s stick to the good Ellis is typical Ellis with his brilliant ideas and satisfying ending I am not a big Ultimate s Universe reader so most of these takes on the characters were new to me It was kind of a fun Elseworld s story to me What made it fun was to see how characters from Marvel I know I really enjoyed this collection by my fav writer Warren Ellis You even get one Mark Miller story thrown in which ends on a depressing note becausehe s Mark Miller and hates happiness But let s stick to the good Ellis is typical Ellis with his brilliant ideas and satisfying ending I am not a big Ultimate s Universe reader so most of these takes on the characters were new to me It was kind of a fun Elseworld s story to me What made it fun was to see how characters from Marvel I know and love were reintroduced in weird ways Some worked great Sam Wilson Falcon Captain Marvel some were odd but worked in the story Silver Surfer and some fell flat and felt forced into the story Moon Dragon I liked the Vision character but I didn t like the fact it had to be called Vision so we go oh this is the Ultimate version of Vision , they could have called it anything because the only thing it shared in common with the Marvel version of the Vision was the name and it was a robot There was a lot of greatness in the story first thing that comes to mind is how Ellis weaves in the characters together but allows them to retain their personalities the X Men are odd outsiders, the Fantastic Four are gifted but have a conscious, and the Avengers are the fighters who don t mind killing to get the job done The second thing I loved was how Ellis took the time to make Galactus feel real and feel like a menace And lastly, the conclusion was clever and felt earned Very cool The art was solid throughout and added to the drama atmosphere of the story because it wasrealistic than cartoony If I had one complaint, besides the name drop of characters who didn t belong, it would be the first story arc dragged a bit and the payoff was just to get The Vision free from a Russian death camp Still fun but a little long before we get to the main story of Gah lac tus coming Overall a great re imagining of Galactus coming to Earth for a modern age Loved it

    Event miniseries from the prime of the defunct Ultimate Universe which nicely illustrates its strengths and weaknesses The moody, military thriller tone works brilliantly in the first miniseries here, with small teams of characters working their way into a Cold War era base, with lots of typically Ellis y science horror mixed in The overall story makes sense, too, which is a rarity for any kind of event But the curse of the Ultimate U is that every new storyline also had to introduce Ultimat Event miniseries from the prime of the defunct Ultimate Universe which nicely illustrates its strengths and weaknesses The moody, military thriller tone works brilliantly in the first miniseries here, with small teams of characters working their way into a Cold War era base, with lots of typically Ellis y science horror mixed in The overall story makes sense, too, which is a rarity for any kind of event But the curse of the Ultimate U is that every new storyline also had to introduce Ultimate versions of Marvel characters, and over the course of three miniseries that means a lot of baggage, Ultimate Falcon and Ultimate Vision and Ultimate Captain Marvel and Ultimate Misty Knight all running around needing things to do by the end most of them get siphoned off to a B Plot involving Ultimate Moondragon also new , whose only purpose is to manufacture action scenes while the big brains work out what to do about a very Warren Ellis version of the big G Never bad, but the build up is the best part here something it does have in common with parent universe crossovers

    The original Galactus Trilogy is without question one of the most significant storylines in comics history Wildly imaginative and epic in scope, it introduced concepts and characters that have

comics history Wildly imaginative and epic in scope, it introduced concepts and characters that have influenced superhero comics tremendously to this day An interdimensional being who eats planets and his surfboard riding herald are pretty heady ideas, yet Lee and Kirby made it work with forward thinking storytelling and Marvel s trademark grounded humanity The thing is, though, I ve always felt like Galactus was a one and done villain Any subsequent appearance of Galactus would inevitably be less impactful, because his world ending threat had already been established and thwarted once This underscores a problem I have with superhero comics telling similar stories over and over Which is why the Ultimate line was such a good idea it allowed decades old characters and stories to be retooled in ways that made them feel fresh and exciting The feeling of sameness could be substituted by creative, new ideas that otherwise wouldn t fly in the 616 universe.To that end, Warren Ellis Ultimate Galactus Trilogy is a terrific reinvention of that classic story It bears little resemblance to Lee and Kirby s saga, except that there s something called Galactus coming to drain all life on Earth The three miniseries plus a one shot that make up this story present an all hands on deck Marvel mashup of espionage, science fiction, and high octane superheroics Given the scale of the story and amount of characters, it s amazing that it reads so fluidly That it s so much fun is almost a bonus.The best part of the book is the sense of impending doom established from the first page We don t even see Gah Lak Tus as he s called here until the final issue, and information about him is gradually revealed In the first mini, Ultimate Nightmare, select Ultimates and X Men separately investigate a grim signal being broadcast from Russia This is basically a spy story, replete with tense pacing that doesn t let up until the last issue when we hear that name dropped Gah Lak Tus It s a page turning five issues that sets up the story masterfully Ultimate Secret is the most fun of the three series Without giving much away, the Kree and Captain Marvel are introduced here, and the way Ellis ties in their story to Gah Lak Tus is rather brilliant I like how the Fantastic Four are worked in this section, too this is where the story becomes all encompassing, where we learn just what this mysterious entity is all about I think having the FF, Ultimates, and X Men involved rather than just the FF in the original trilogy makes sense in this universe, and gives the story the grand feeling it needs.Things come to a head and to a close in Ultimate Extinction Evencharacters are introduced here, but these characters feel purposeful, not gratuitous My only complaint is with the ending, which I think could ve used another five or ten pages Still, Ellis delivers a satisfying and there s no other word for it epic finale.Beyond the bombast, Ellis litters the story with great character moments and fascinating reinventions We see for the first time Ultimate versions of Falcon, Vision, Carol Danvers, Captain Marvel, Misty Knight, and Silver Surfer I love these versions of Vision and Silver Surfer especially They re quite different from their 616 counterparts, but fit the context of the story Ellis also squeezes in some great character exchanges The scenes with Ben, Johnny, and Thor had me cracking up And seeing the Ultimates and Fantastic Four meet for the first time was a treat, especially Tony and Reed geeking out I usually don t care for huge events like this, mainly because characters tend to get lost in convoluted plotting But Ellis balances everyone beautifully, giving them equal attention while moving the story forward It s very impressive.On the art side, I don t have many complaints Steve McNiven s work in Ultimate Secret is the high point, but all the artists do good job bringing this gargantuan story to life Even John Romita Jr., whose style I usually hate, manages some interesting visuals in the Ultimate Vision issue.The Ultimate Galactus Trilogy offers proof that classic comics stories can be reconfigured in new and exciting ways Bringing the Galactus Trilogy to a modern setting is no easy task Ellis and co take the foundation and expand it into something original and invigorating, resulting in arguably the high point of the Ultimate universe At it s core, though, is fantastically fun superhero storytelling Don t miss it

    Just frickin awesome The Ultimates series is just the best Here we get a new spin on Galactus rather than one super big dude who eats planets he s a hive mind Vision and Silver Surfer are also reimagined in cool new ways The Fantastic Four get in on the action, along with the X Men and the Ultimate Avengers It s a truly epic brouhaha and the stakes couldn t be higher Loved it from start to finish.

    What was the best Marvel story ever told Was it the death of Gwen Stacy in Amazing Spider Man 121 Perhaps the Dark Phoenix saga told in The Uncanny X Men Or perhaps it is the story of the day that the planet eating Galactus came to Earth, a story that began in issue 48 of Fantastic FourThe Ultimate Galactus Trilogy retells this classic Marvel story and manages to exceed its source material in every way Ever wondered where the Avengers and X Men were when Galactus turns up in New York C What was the best Marvel story ever told Was it the death of Gwen Stacy in Amazing Spider Man 121 Perhaps the Dark Phoenix saga told in The Uncanny X Men Or perhaps it is the story of the day that the planet eating Galactus came to Earth, a story that began in issue 48 of Fantastic FourThe Ultimate Galactus Trilogy retells this classic Marvel story and manages to exceed its source material in every way Ever wondered where the Avengers and X Men were when Galactus turns up in New York City Ultimate Galactus addresses this, bringing in not only the Fantastic Four, Avengers or Ultimates as they are called in this universe and the X Men but also the Kree superhero Captain Marvel, Vision, and even, oddly enough, Misty Knight.The concept of Galactus is brilliantly and frighteningly reimagined here and draws just enough on the iconographic source material to satisfy the old fans while bringing it up to date that purple suit with the big G just had to go It should be noted that the movie version of the Galactus story Fantastic Four Rise of the Silver Surfer takes some influences from Ultimate Galactus but failed to pull it off Read Ultimate Galactus and find out how it should have been done.Things to look out for Vision does a Starbuck Vision is now female most of the time Iron Man vs Silver Surfer You just know someone s going to get hurt
