Ultimate Comics X-Men #28
The conclusion to America’s war against Utopia, and the beginning of something much bigger. That sums up this story and it proves that Ultimate Comics X-Men is one of the best Marvel books out there. I couldn’t stress enough how much attention this book deserves. If the Ultimate Universe does come to a close due to ‘Hunger’, this book will be missed because you don’t get quality storytelling like that very often. Brian Woods again shows his knowledge of the X-Men world and the characters he portrays.
Kitty Pryde has been the breakout star of this book and deserves to be the center of attention as well. She’s really grown into a fantastic leader, and one that you find very respectable as a leader. I’m very excited for the next story arc because with the conclusion of this arc, you are left with anticipation to see how she continues to take the fight to the world.Comparing this book to Uncanny X-Men and All New X-Men, you find yourself seeing how much more she understands the politics of it all in comparison to Cyclops and Wolverine. Not just Kitty, but Wood himself as the writer, more so than Remender who is lacking in that understanding.
The art here is great and dynamic. It has remain consistent throughout and it fits the story, not much can be said there. Overall there’s nothing but good things to say about this book and this storyline all together. Its been an exciting perspective on the mutant issue and full of action that keeps you wanting more. It had great pacing, it was balanced and you never felt like there was a need to rush this. This was a natural as you could get from the conflict Wood brought to life. The dialogue between Jean and Kitty was brilliant and after everything is said and done, you can’t help but wonder what comes next because Jean looked infuriated.
