New Ultimate Edit Week 1: Day Seven

Saturday, March 13th, 2010

The penultimate pages showed Carol Danvers and Tony Stark getting all shouty and arguey. Then Shanna the She-Devil, Ka-Zar, some tigers and the mute Black Panther who isn’t Captain America in disguise this time hang out in Central Park. Things suddenly get cold. What could this mean?

That’s all for this week. ManiacClown would strangle me […]


New Ultimate Edit Week 1: Day Six

Friday, March 12th, 2010

Yesterday’s adventure involved Thor having the mistress of the afterlife take care of his hammer. Then Tony Stark and Carol Danvers started going for the jugular. Let’s continue on with that.

This was one of the more difficult Ultimate Edit installments to write based on the matter of what we were critiquing. Back when we first […]


New Ultimate Edit Week 1: Day Five

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

Our last installment featured the end of the Ultimates vs. Defenders fight with Son of Satan stealing Mjolnir from a very stupid Valkyrie and then escaping with the rest. Meanwhile, Thor has gotten bored of being king of the mountain and wants to escape the land of the dead. Hela will grant him that wish, […]


New Ultimate Edit Week 1: Day Four

Wednesday, March 10th, 2010

What happened on Day Three? Let’s see, the duo of Hawkeye and Iron Man were doing pretty badly against the Defenders until Captain America showed up with what seemed to be Xena Warrior Princess and the Glamazon Beth Phoenix. They turn the tide and start whipping some Defender tail. A tail that Hellcat surprisingly does […]


New Ultimate Edit Week 1: Day Three

Tuesday, March 9th, 2010

Welcome back!
In our last installment, Hawkeye and Iron Man continued to talk about stuff (their favorite bands, chicks who’ve broken their hearts, the Matrix) until a bunch of angry dudes with superpowers showed up randomly. Sucks especially for Hawkeye, since nearly everyone on the opposing team appears to be bulletproof.
How will our heroes (if you […]


New Ultimate Edit Week 1: Day Two

Monday, March 8th, 2010

Yesterday, Iron Man flew by a burning building to have a heart-to-heart with Hawkeye, who seemed down. With everything squared away over the course of two pages, Hawkeye is in better spirits. Read on as stuff happens.

Thanks go out to ManiacClown, who continues to be confused at the length of Clint’s ammo compared to the […]


New Ultimate Edit Week 1: Day One

Sunday, March 7th, 2010

It had to happen. Jeph Loeb returns to the Ultimates cast with his new series New Ultimates, this time accompanied by Frank Cho. Naturally, ManiacClown and I have returned to take it to task. For those who are lost, check out the previous installments of Ultimate Edit and Ultimatum Edit. Go on, I’ll wait.
Now, then. […]


4th Letter Masterworks: Ultimate Edit

Thursday, October 15th, 2009

Back in the end of 2007, Marvel released Ultimates 3 by Jeph Loeb. It took the fears everybody had about the title and proved worse than expected. The entire spirit of what Marvel was going for with the Ultimate universe was killed with five issues of bad characterization, stupid murder mysteries, funky art and […]


Ultimate Edit: The Annotations

Monday, October 6th, 2008

Ultimate Edit has come and gone. I hope you had as much fun reading it as we had making it. Rereading some of the stuff, I notice how awkward bits of the dialogue come off. There are some references that are either obscure or too outdated to work months later. For the hell of it, […]


Ultimate Edit Week 5: Day Seven

Friday, October 3rd, 2008

Well, here it is! The last day.
In the penultimate installment, Quicksilver sacrificed himself for his father by taking an arrow to the chest. The irony is that he would have been able to run in there in time to catch the arrow with his hands if he didn’t have that limp from being shot in […]
