    Here's the main thing: This whole volume is called World War X. Mutant on Mutant violence. Utopia versus Tian. What's cool? Jean Gray is a bigger villain here than Magneto ever was in 616. Just pure evil looking down on everyone. Kitty shores up the troops (cue the arrival of Colossus), and realizes she can't be a pacifist. Jimmy Hudson betrays someone...or does he? Or he does? Hmm? It costs him...or does it? Pixie is a hero. Yes, Pixie. Iceman and Husk appear on the side of angels. Jean here written by Here's the main thing: This whole volume is called World War X.

Yes, Pixie. Iceman and Husk appear on the side of angels. Jean here written by Brian Wood is a delusional dictator who wants all power and control over the mutant people. She does horrible things to Utopia in order to defeat them...she REALLY hates Kitty. Everyone comes together to fight her off (funny enough, there's not a ton of people who side with Jean...some nobodies...not even a Toad or Pyro to be seen lol. The other cool part is the reaction of the US Gov't/human populace to the events. Kitty goes all out here, for a pacifist, she realizes somethings are bigger than ideals. The final showdown between Kitty and Jean is pretty awesome. I'm sure it would have been moreso if I'd actually known what happened in vols 2-4... I think this was the end of this series.

    And so we come to a close for Wood's run on X-Men. It's a shame because it felt like he could have went on another few arcs. This is the boiling point. Jean wants the mutants to unite on Tian. Her little world in the sky. She believes mutants must come to her, that she's right, and basically she becomes the villain of the series. Kitty decides to step down and take the fight to Jean. The lines are drawn and non-violence is out the window! What I liked: The build up is great. Jean trying to move And so we come to a close for Wood's run on X-Men.

The lines are drawn and non-violence is out the window! What I liked: The build up is great. Jean trying to move her pieces to get Kitty to fight back was great. Loved watching Kitty fight back with both her fist and intelligence. The ending kind of hits a bit hard for Kitty because realize that the whole thing about Mutants is humans don't really care about them. They can all be wiped out and it would be nothing to the government. How fucked up is that? What I didn't like: The change in Jean's character was evident through the run but she just felt a bit too "Evil" for the sake of being a "big bad" instead of earned it. I also hated the fallout with her, felt lifeless and waaaay to glossed over. This was another solid book but not great. I still think Wood's best is volume 1, with volume 2 and 3 still solid but not as good. I really think if Wood had a few years to flush this out he could have made one of the BEST X-Men comics of all time. As it stands it's GOOD but not GREAT but sometimes that's the best we could get.

    A really strong send off for Ultimate X-Men, though the ending seems a little too nice to everyone involved.

    It had to happen.. It's Tian vs Utopia, Jean Grey vs Kitty Pryde! As big events go, this one's well scripted and paced, but lacks the oomph to leave a lasting memory, despite its quality. 7 out of 12. Collects Ultimate Comics X-Men #29-33.

    De vez em quando, eu compro um gibi de 8 reais em alguma promoção, pode ser bom, poder ruim e pode ser uma bosta compelta, dificilmente é algo excelente. No caso em questão, Ultimate Comics X-Men do Brian Wood é bem ruim.

No início, a linha Ultimate era legal, tinha um ar de novidade, de modernidade, sem o peso de milhares de páginas de continuidade e cronologia que não fazia sentido algum. Com o tempo, o problema que ela fora criada para resolver acabou se tornando o mesmo problema, a cronologia pesa e pesa muito. Embora houvesse a idade de consequências reais nas histórias, continuavam as contradições entre os títulos, os momentos de leitura e a linha, como um todo, ficava cada vez mais parecida com um time B da Marvel. Antes de continuar falando mal, admito que comprei o gibi errado, pensei que era volume 3 do Mark Millar, por 8 pila, pareceu um risco razoável; enfim é a parte final da fase do Brian Wood que termina numa guerra entre Tian (Jean Grey) e Utopia (Kitty Pryde) e quem perde é o leitor. Os desenhos são sem graça, os personagens parecem versões B dos 616, a história não tem momento, não tem gravidade, porque uma guerra? Não faz sentido, parece que apenas era necessário mais um antagonista, mais um inimigo para que finalmente os mutantes se unissem. Eu achei uma porcaria, mas deve ter quem goste.

    Wow! A spectacularly terrible ending. The war that makes no sense finally happens and its...pointless. Characters make choices that don't make sense. I'm not sure why this happened. Brian Wood and the X-Men just don't mix. The art was decent but this was not good. Overall, an ending of a series that was a huge miss.

    Just dumb. Fighting for no reason. World War X? Because it’s a huge battle of Mutants vs Mutants? Because it’s not. It’s basically just Kitty vs Jean Grey and their fight is...two pages? Pass.

    Phew, ok this is over. The Ultimate X-men were finally taken out behind the woodshed and shot, just a year or so before their entire Universe is given a mercy killing. When the Ultimate Comics x-men came out, rocking a world that had not yet gone reboot crazy, who knew this is where the title would end?

X-teams are given different names when they have a different focus than the original X-men. X-factor has been a government sanctioned super group, or a Private Investigation Company. X-force has always been the militaristic group, willing to get their hands dirty. This book should have been called Ultimate Comics X-nation or something else. I know that sounds picky, but when you love the original versions of these characters as much as I do, you want their stories to be consistent.

    Alright, if somewhat underwhelming conclusion to Brian Wood's decent run on the (Ultimate) X-Men. The big WORLD WAR that would rock (Ultimate) mutantdom boils down to one casualty on either side, and one of those is a sentient non-verbal, non-anthropomorphized plant. I mean, look at that trade's cover! Big mass graves with X-skeletons in them! What a classic Silver Age cop-out!

Jean Grey's megalomania is finally confronted from all sides, but not really addressed with regards to her previous character. Allowing her to live in Utopia with no apparent punishment for anything seems like editorial telling Wood to keep a big character around rather than having her experience any real fallout. The eternal push-n-pull of mainstream comics!

    Kind of a good story with a good setup and interesting supporting characters but with the main characters of Jean Grey and Kitty Pryde coming through a bit flat. And without the richness of the universe's history to support it, it wasn't good enough. And Jean not only being evil, but especially telling the big lie (saying something untrue to the media and not being challenged) was especially irritating. But both worlds were interesting and different. And Kitty being a major character was a nice Kind of a good story with a good setup and interesting supporting characters but with the main characters of Jean Grey and Kitty Pryde coming through a bit flat.

    This volume of the Ultimate Comics: X-men series was a pretty good. Brian Wood seemed as though he was having a lot of fun writing this series. It had a few weak points and at there could have been a bit more action. At its core this book continues to be a great experiment of playing with a few new ideas in the X-men universe.

    Though I followed the Ultimate titles pretty well, I just don't recognize these characters or really understand why they do what they do except for the fact that it serves the plot for them to make the choices they do. The weakest of the post-Ultimatum Xmen TPBs.

    An excellent conclusion to Brian Wood's X-Men run. The scope is huge, and Wood deals with it in a believable way, all the time telling stories that could never have been told in 616. The characterization is decently good too.

    This is a solid ending to Brian Wood's run. However it feels like he was told to leave it with an okay status quo for some unknown reason. The War is interesting. Jean Grey is a crazy villain. Mostly read because I wanted to be able to say that I've read all of the Ultimate Universe.

    Points for turning Jean Grey into a villain, but minus a few for facing no real retribution at the end.

    Colossus is still gay! Whew! Northstar dead? I liked the story and the art wasn't bad but some new characters can trip me up. What happened before? Nice to see a good mutant go bad.
