Did anyone else have a problem telling Enchantress, Carol Danvers, and Valkyrie apart when they were just showing a head shot?
Three blondes, with the same haircut (or veeery subtle differences?), and they all had the same face!
It's the little things, you know?

It was ok, I guess. Nothing spectacular to report.
No socks blown off or anything. Just a blandish story about Thor's return from the world of the dead.
This should have been a pretty easy win for Loeb, though.

It's starting to get late in the 'evolution' of the Marvel Ultimate Universe, and it shows here in Thor Reborn. Plots and subplots are twistier, and there is less interest by the writers in showing us, Dear Reader, what has come before.
Suffice it to say, Thor has gone on to Valhalla, although the Ultimates just appear to believe he is missing. Can he be brought back? And will the world survive his return?

When Macbeth lamented, "It is a tale told by an idiot full of sound and fury signifying nothing," he was speaking of life not Thor Reborn. Yet, that quotation succinctly captures my thoughts about this failed effort to reboot the Avengers and give us the "New Ultimates."

The plot's main stem has Loki working (for reasons not disclosed initially) to bring his brother, Thor back from the land of the dead. When that deed is eventually accomplished we have an insane Thor who only wants to battle and

Hmmm... let's see the back cover here for a moment: "Thor Reborn is an epic tale of betrayal, loss, and wild adventure". Epic? Not so much. Wild adventure? Meh. What we have here is 3 or 4 issues' worth of story stretched into 5 parts (mercifully not more) with *seemingly* a lot happening, but in reality quite the opposite.

Here's a quick recap of the WHOLE story:

I bought this for less that half the cover price, and I'm not sure it was worth it. Well, I should probably explain.

I like Frank Cho's art a lot. Actually, I *love* Frank Cho's art. And he's actually (in my opinion) getting better with each of these projects. Yes, it's slick and highly commercial, especially his women (his true area of expertise), but it's also very pleasing to the eye, and the compositions are becoming more dynamic as he goes along. Compare this to, say, his work with Bendis on

Mixed bag. The art wasn't bad (though the number of @ss shots of the ladies in thongs and skintight suits was ridiculous). I was a bit disappointed that in a graphic novel titled "Thor Reborn" there wasn't more Thor. Kinda weird how Thor has this Eternal Love (though I didn't read the comics where she was properly introduced, so I probably shouldn't judge this aspect too harshly). Definitely not a fan of the monologuing. Wasn't necessary to the story, didn't really develop the character, and ten ...more

Thor's in Valhalla and Loki invades Earth (or New York which basically stands for Earth apparently) with an army of trolls. Enchantress plays her part by brainwashing the women heroes who take down the Ultimates.

Not the best setup given that it's expected that Thor returns and beats up the trolls, which he does of course far too easily.

I loved Mark Millar's run on the Ultimates and thought it was the best possible start a writer could give to Marvel, incorporating all of their beloved heroes i
Is it only Ultimate-Universe Marvel comics that Jeph Loeb fucks up? That must be it, because I can't see any other reason why this guy is still getting work.

To be fair, Thor Reborn isn't as terrible as Ultimates 3 or Ultimatum, not by a longshot, but it labors to make five issues out of a two-issue arc and is further struggling beneath ludicrous art by Frank Cho. The battle scenes, mcguffenesque in that they exist only to have an excuse to draw everybody together, are visually interesting but I

Obviously this Ultimate Marvel world is different than the regular Marvel Universe, but in this one, there aren't many heroes left at all. The New Ultimates are the only real team left (Cap, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Black Panther, Valkryie etc.) In this world, Thor is dead, but Loki is up to his tricks, and we still see what Thor is up to in Valhalla. What will happen when the God of Thunder returns from the dead? Who will be safe and who will be targeted? Everyone is kind of an asshole in this book, ...more

Many heroes dead, including Thor. Tony's drunk and has cancer and is banging Carol Danvers. Steve is having an existential crisis (when isn't he?). Clint is pissed at everything. And the ladies seemingly in charge are hyped up on anger and apparently steroids that make them physically indiscernible from one another.
Meanwhile, who's the one person who knows Thor being dead is a thing that should be fixed and actually does something about it? Loki. Who's the one who gets skewered in the end for a

While I give the first issue in this collection some credit as it is clearly a love letter from Jeph Loeb to his late son (and an effort on his part to work his grief out), the rest of the comic plays like the Avengers by way of series one TORCHWOOD. That isn't a good thing.

Seriously, the first real Ultimates series post-Ultimatum and it's written by Jeph Loeb, the guy who essentially ruined the franchise in the first place? His Ultimates 3 series was awful, and the less said about Ultimatum the better, yet he somehow got asked to put all the pieces back together again. New Ultimates: Thor Reborn finds the team - original members Captain America, Iron Man and Hawkeye plus newbies Black Panther, Zarda, Valkyrie, Ka-Zar and Shanna - facing off against the Enchantress ...more

Frank Cho on an Avengers book is a great idea, but I wish Jeph Loeb had a better story to tell. There's a lot of eye candy with double-page spreads because Cho is known best for drawing curvy women and dinosaurs well.

But I could do away with Loeb's usage of character inner-thought text captions all together as locale captions and dialogue are enough to propel a story for me. The technique worked fine during his first Batman/Superman story (six issue) arc, but less so here. I'll try to be as dire

New Ultimates Thor Reborn is when the New Ultimates find the Defenders trying to steal M'Jionr (Thor's Hammer). Meanwhile Thor's is in Hel about to have a baby with Hela. Enchantress has turned all the female Ultimates against their comrades until her spell is broken. Once Loki kills Valkerie Thor's love Thor is resurrected and seeks vengeance. The thing I like about this is yet again it's a Marvel team dealing with a classic villain but this time it's the Loki we're all familiar with unlike in ...more

The Ultimates story lines deliberately shoots for edgier. The heroes don't necessarily like each other and they have no regrets when killing the bad guys. Okay, I get it.

But every hero in Thor Reborn walks around with a chip on his/her shoulder, and every one sees a physical confrontation as the solution regardless of it's a teammate or enemy. Because of this, the characters are bland.

Iron Man is a jerk, but so is Hawkeye. Zarda loses her temper and so does Thor. They're all walking power kegs,

La verdad que me acerqué a este tomo temiendo lo peor y, para ser de Jeph Loeb, me llevé una grata sorpresa. Pensé que después de los ultrapolitizados e inabarcables Ultimates de Millar, este señor sólo podía arruinar lo poco que quedara en pie (de hecho, me dijeron que de eso se encarga en Ultimates 3, que todavía no he tenido el masoquismo de leer), sobre todo teniendo en cuenta lo boludazo que me pareció Ultimatum.

Frank Cho is an amazing artist and has always delivered great artwork but it's a shame its wasted on Jeph Loeb's New Ultimates. Jeph Loeb has yet to win back my affections after the horrid Ultimatum and this series although not as bad certainly doesn't redeem him in my opinion.

The story is mediocre; I didn't care for the conflict which was silly and the progress of the story was slow and rather boring. Once again characters engage in relationships that aren't crucial to the story; although I did

I know, I said I wasn't going to after Ultimatum but it was in the library so it's not like I paid for it. Still wasn't worth it. Actually, I thought it was by Hickman and didn't really check - if I had realised it was by Loeb I definitely wouldn't have bothered.

So, what happens? Lots of fighting and bickering, lots of recaps and an annoying narrative device where a single character (different each time) provides a background expositionary commentary. Trouble is, each voice sounds the same throu

Another Jeph Loeb Ultimate book that only seemed good because I was expecting it to have no reading qualities what so ever.

Again with this distracting narration through each issue that adds nothing to story and in fact takes away from what is happening on page.

Although the art was good, I found the over sexualization of the female characters very distracting. On at least one occasion the only thing in panel of one of these characters are her boobs. The writer and artist took a retailing of a cla

The Ultimate universe started very strong but leading up to the Ultimatum event, the event itself, and what first followed, the universe has been declining. This might be step forward finally. The story was really good, while too salacious for the hero books I enjoy. I always love a good Loki story and this is what this book truly is. The house got cleaned and hopefully the future will continue on this path. The art by Frank Cho is, of course, amazing. He meshes cheesecake with cartoony action p ...more

Who approved Jeph Loeb to write on the Ultimate universe again? All of the other Ultimate Comics line are trying their damnedest to recover from the mess that was Ultimatum but we have to suffer through another Loeb penned work.

The narrating is god-awful. One character narrates each issue and really it has little to do with what is happening on panel. I'm fairly certain you could read every issue without it and it wouldn't make a difference.

I love/hate Frank Cho. He does great pin-up women, but
Well, it had its issues, but I guess it's redeeming Loeb from the catastrophe that was Ultimatum. The artwork was mediocre, though they could have added different facial features onto the females. Zarda just acted weird and didn't seem right for the team. Iron Man was ok, though he could have been handled better. The romance between Valkyrie and Thor to me barely made sense, and the ending seemed meh to me. Overall, this can be passed for most readers.

While the artwork was stunning the story was a bit lacking. I found that I am not a fan of the Ultimates timeline but if you are this is a good story. Tells of how Thor returned from Valhala and the sacrifices each of the team members made.

Generally a good volume, particularly the first three issues which have nice characterization for two of the Ultimates and for Valkyrie. It weakens a bit at the end, which devolves into a two-issue big fight.
