Following the devastation wreaked by the Hulk in the first book, Bruce Banner is locked up for his irresponsibility. Nick Fury reveals a secret that could destroy Earth. And alien Nazis are running rampant! This could only be a job for - the Ultimates!
Mark Millar follows up his popular first book on the Ultimates with another strong volume. Homeland Security is in a way the ultimate distinction between good and evil - evil aliens intent on destroying Earth who are inhabiting the bodies of Nazis versus Captain America and co. The bad guys seem to have stepped out of a David Icke fantasy into the Marvel Universe.
The action is fantastic and the story good fun to read - Cap has a great line: "Surrender? Do you think this 'A' stands for France?". I'm still not sure what Jan Pym brings to the team though - Wasp? A woman who turns into a wasp? How does that possibly match Hulk, Iron Man, or Thor? Also Betty Ross' personality seems to have completely changed from the first book (which is good as she was a completely different character then). But small quibbles aside, this is great, action-packed comic book.
