I’ve also been reading Ultimates. I found the first trade used. I almost stopped reading because of the Wasp/Hank Pym thing, but I decided to keep reading downloads of it, and I’m feeling much better about it now that Captain America has kicked Hank’s ass. Although I’m still reserving judgment - Millar seems kinda tone-deaf on women, so far.
The really cool thing about Ultimates is how similar it is to the Avengers movie. Look at this page - the Hulk’s “container” on the Helicarrier in the movie is straight from the comic. Also, Hawkeye and Black Widow are in this, and Hawkeye’s costume is identical to the movie.
I really wish they hadn’t deleted Wasp in the movie, but I guess in order to do that, they would’ve had to include Hank. I’m actually really curious how they’re going to handle him in Ant-Man now, because he’s such a dick (even outside of Ultimates).
series: oh fuck I’m attracted to a comic book character (that’s totally normal right?)
