I didn't think it was possible for Jeph Loeb to redeem himself. Some of the stuff he's written? Pure crap.
However, this was fun!
Yes, most of the original characters are dead, but since it's the Ultimate Universe...well, I guess that's ok.
So what we have here are pretty cool introductions to some of the new X-Men. Sons or daughters of the original characters, a few surviving original characters, and then some new guys. Oh yeah, and the Hulk.
Trust me. It's the coolest part.

So this turned out to be pretty dang awesome! Great artwork and great story and I really had misgivings about it.

Brilliant art by 'The Master' Arthur Adams!
Yes, Ultimatum was terrible and Who Killed the Scarlet Witch was, too, but Thor Reborn was merely tepid. Loeb is slowly showing me he can create a narrative without shitting all over everything I once liked about characters he uses. And he's showing me that the story can even reach the low bar of coherency that I expect from my superhero comics.

I guess I'm having a hard time saying this...but, good job Jeph. You didn't fuck up.

The X-Men were the reason I started reading Ultimate Comics in the fi

My initial reaction to this had been pretty positive. But as I was reading other Goodreads reviews before writing this (as I normally do) I came to realize I only thought it was good because my bar of expectations from a Jeph Loeb story was so incredibly low. I feel the best I can say was, yeah, it wasn't utter shit.

The narration during each issue was something I really didn't like. What was being said was good, but the way it was paced out over every panel just didn't fit what was going on. It

Gratísima sorpresa, mitad mérito del genial dibujo de Adams, y mitad mérito del guion de un Loeb bastante inspirado, casi irreconocible con respecto al pochoclo con patas que fue Ultimatum. Me gusta cómo presenta a los personajes nuevos, me gusta cómo "esconde" y replantea a los viejos, y me gusta el desarrollo general. ¡Hasta me dejó con ganas de leer más! Otra buena muestra de que cuando Jeph Loeb tiene ganas de divertir y divertirse puede llegar a niveles más que dignos.

Excellent group of characters all handled (and "introduced") very well and even handedly, with superb illustration from Arthur Adams!
If they keep Loeb and Adams together on this it could be very fun indeed!

Decent origins story. Interested in seeing what they intend on doing with the characters but it seems the series was stopped.

With the destruction of the X-Men, the world now hunts all mutants. Scattered, and without purpose many are in hiding, while others are unaware of what they are. In this introductory volume, the next generation of mutant heroes are brought together by "Karen", better known as Jean Gray, who after the fall of the X-Men finds herself in anguish and alone. Most of the others are new to the universe, although several are descended from the original bunch. Depth is given to each of them through the n ...more
