Set just after the Ultimate Galactus story, Ultimate Vision was an interesting look into Vision as a character and there are a couple hints (via the Advanced Idea Mechanics group) of story-lines to continue beyond Ultimatum.

Otherwise this limited series was just more riffing off the theme of "Don't Fuck With Shit You Don't Understand" that's been the go-to message with Ultimate Comics for quite some time. From Reed Richards to Major Fury and all the other brains, good and evil, it always leads

A pretty good read. The Vision (robot hero of Marvel Comics) is reimagined for Marvel's Ultimate Universe.

Despite a great fondness for the vision from the "ordinary" Marvel Universe, and an even greater fondness, perhaps bromantic, for the Paul Bettany interpretation on the silver screen, I liked this version, too. Ultimate Vision is an alien robot millions of years old, highly reconfigurable, able to assimilate a planet worth of knowledge in seconds, and designed to get ahead of the intergalact

A pretty Damn good read, taking me make before the bubble of general shittiness that surrounds "ultimatum". Most definitely not an essential read if your going through the Ultimate line, I don't think it really adds anything important to the world that ties in with any of the main series. but perhaps the fact that it's just a follow up to the Galactis trilogy/expansion of the Vision character is what made it so enjoyable.

My favorite part of the book was Ultimate AIM. I don't know if this was the

It's just me.

The book was very nicely illustrated, and Carey did a good job of crafting the story, and the characters, and really everything was very nicely handled. But I just don't like revisionist or alternate storylines that much. Or, maybe I just don't like them when they become universes of their own, or maybe I just think a female Vision, who's an alien construct, and entwined in the Galactus (excuse me...Gah Lak Tus) mythos is too far out of bounds, and would have worked better as an in

I really enjoyed this comic series, that concluded the Galactus Trilogy, I actually prefer the Ultimate version of the Vision, who I found as a female far less cold, than the original, rather reminiscent of the Avengers 80's member Jocasta, Artwork and script excellent, and I loved the last full page panel.

I've never been a big Vision fan, but when you turn the Vision into a golden robot girl, how could I resist? The story here isn't too spectacular, but an interesting follow up to the Ultimate Galactus storyline.
An interesting look into the history of Ultimate Gah Lak Tus that I might have enjoyed more if it weren't for the bizarreness of Vision taking on the form of a lady with huge knockers for no apparent reason. 'Why?' is a question I doubt I'll ever get an answer to.
A decent enough entry into the Ultimate line of comics, but a bit of a let-down after the awesomeness of the Ultimate Galactus books. Still, it's nice to see The Falcon getting some action.

A well written coda to Ultimate Galactus that's techie and interesting ... but also which doesn't have enough depth of character to really feel too attached to the story.

Much more interesting than the Ultimate Galactus series. Having this storyline interspersed throughout the final Ultimate Galactus mini would have made it much more readable of a story.
