The Ultimates, Volume 1: Super-Human by Mark Millar

Several of my friends dislike Millars Ultimates for one reason or another. So, every few years I do a re-read of it to see if this will finally be the time my eyes open and I notice what a shitshow it is.


Well, Im still loving it. Every time I crack it open and see Captain America kicking ass, I get a warm fuzzy feeling in my tummy. I just love the way Millar tweaked these characters.


Now, I will admit that a lot of the celebrity name-dropping came across as really dated this time around. Shannon Elizabeth and Freddie Prinze Jr. arent exactly in the forefront of anyones mind anymore. But I recently read Kingsman and he did the same thing there, so I guess the guy is either obsessed with celebrities or is hoping that if he gives them a shout-out theyll be in the movie version of his comic. Although, at least in Kingsman he used stars that already had longevity, like Mark Hamill.


Even so, this is still a lot of fun for me to read.
You have this slightly skewed, and in quite a few cases, slightly skeevy version of the classic Avengers lineup.


When I first read it, it seemed groundbreaking. Now? Well, its still not your mainstream Avengers. Banner/Hulk is probably the most interesting to me in Super-Human because hes such a grasping, weasely character, and his relationship with the equally horrible Betty is such a fun trainwreck to watch.


I dont know why, but I feel like I should apologize for putting this on my favorites list for some reason?
Whatever. I doubt its going to happen because I just continue to love the hell out of this.

The series debuted in December and was completed in May Millar stated in Pop Culture Shock that this arc reflected contemporary issues, ranging from hyper-powered countries like the USA, preemptive strikes , the rising world-wide anti-American sentiment in the wake of the Neo-Conservative Bush Doctrine , and the "rogue nation" classification and the fear of backlash in form of nuclear Armageddon. Millar said: "In the name of oil, this administration is stirring up a hornet's nest. My own belief is that there'll be a couple of nuclear attacks in the States, the multinationals will move elsewhere, the American economy will completely collapse and make the 30s look like the 80s and the Middle East will be occupied by drafted teenagers from your home town. I hope I'm completely and utterly wrong.
