Ultimatum 3

continues to be post-Authority fecal drivel.  Biting his head off??  Really??


Loeb’s further trivialization of Thor’s hammer irks me.  It was one of the few constants we had in the MU these days (with Bucky not-dead and all): no one unworthy can live Thor’s hammer.  You cannot trick it.  The only way would be to remove the magic, or place it in someplace without magic, something like that.  No way, no how would Ultimate Magneto be able to lift it.  Maybe 616 Magneto circa mid-80s, but that’s it.  And the BS Red Hulk pulled?  *stabs eyes*  Yes, yes I know this is “Ultimate Mjolnir”.  It’s ultimately silly is what it is.

All the biting of humans was unnecessary.   Everything that happened there could have happen without the purility of biting Wasp/biting off Blob’s head.

The suicide bomber Madroxs, while making sense (sort of) make me kind of ill.  As if it needed another, this would be the final nail in the coffin of any hope ultimate Magneto had of being the interesting anti-hero/villain that he has so often been in 616.  Here he’s just another useless dick who should be dead by now.

There was a blurb about Forge and someone else that made no sense.

Wiping out Emma’s entire school (including 2 of my 3 all time favorite x-characters) OFF PANEL was beyond stupid.

Killing Beast AGAIN seems…I don’t know what the word is…just dumb.  Maybe he’ll be this world’s Phoenix.

Yes, you are building up a death count.  Gee that’s great. AND?
