The last of the four new Ultimate books launched this last week. by Nick Spencer and Paco Medina, it continues with the status quo post-Ultimatum where Magneto's attack has set human/mutant relations back to the dark ages.

It also builds on Loeb's Ultimate X book, using Ultimate Jean Grey Karen Grant and Wolverine's son, and also using the trio of Iceman, Johnny Storm and Kitty Pryde following on from Death of Spider-man.

It's pretty good and for the first time in a while, a comic shocked me. I'll put out a warning for implied gore and violence as well as familial violence.

The woman with the black hair is Ultimate Jean Grey Karen Grant. She's doing the Xavier thing of dropping in on a young mutant whose power has just manifested to offer them a place at her school "concern, set up to help kids". The woman with the red hair is Miss Pleasant, whose daughter is a mutant, and has videoed her using her powers.

At which point I get a really bad feeling in my stomach.

Wow. That's some really good lettering. Really good.
And then dad comes downstairs with a rifle and a Magneto-esque helmet with WW solutions written on it.

p.s. On the last page of Ultimate Hawkeye 2..., who are Fury's X-Men? I recognise the blonde as being Ultimate Tabitha Smith, but I'm stuck for everybody else.

Toward the end of the first arc, Logan seduced Jean and Scott saw them. He got ready to leave, and in conversation with Xavier, specified he knew the Professor was doing something to his mind. Xavier responded that he was, and had done something I can't quite recall, but Scott was about to 'say words he couldn't possibly mean'.

It's the UXM issue before Scott works with the Brotherhood in the Savage Land.

okay, I was thinking issue not arc.

The first issue seemed more like a one and done with build to later plot points than a single story.
