Ultimates #3

I honestly don't have anything to say for the introduction of this comic, so let's just get to the review.

Ultimates #3:

Summary: With Thor cut off from the source of his godly power due to the Asgardian gods being killed by the Children of Tomorrow/the Evil Future Foundation, Iron Man presents Thor with a Thor-ish suit of armor and hammer outfitted with the power of teleportation. With the Evil FF's city spreading rapidly across Europe, Nick Fury leads SHIELD and the Ultimates against the forces of the Evil FF... And loses spectacularly. The Evil FF's offensive weapons decimate Fury's SHIELD helicarrier fleet, while their defensive capabilities are able to stand up against the strongest weapon in Fury's arsenal, a nuclear warhead. With his forces reeling, Fury is forced to retreat by way of Thor's teleportation. Our heroes are upset by this turn of events, but nobody more so than Thor, who says his good-byes to Iron Man before teleporting directly to the Evil FF's city to meet his fate.

Thoughts: Meh. This issue was what it was. The Ultimates and SHIELD going up against the Evil FF, throwing everything they had at them and being forced to retreat. That one sentence sums up this entire issue perfectly. Nothing else really happened. I mean the battle scenes were well drawn and all, but this isn't the sort of comic book that I'll remember fondly a week from now... Hell, I doubt I'll remember reading this issue at all! I'm still half expecting Thor to die and his son from last issue to claim his mantle, but that's stuff for down the road. To be honest, I'm already looking forward to this storyline ending, mainly to see if Jonathan Hickman is capable of writing a comic book that isn't in some way, shape or form connected to Reed Richards...

Score: 6 1/2 out of 10.I know I say it a lot, but Hawkeye rules!
