So now we get to find out what's up with some of the other mutants on the run. The cover art makes my eye twitch, but the art inside the book isn't that bad, even with a few somewhat WTF panels.

Dislocated hip? Check.
Boobs nowhere near the same size, even when accounting for space and angle? Check.
Creepy doll face? Check.
Stick thin arms, huge curves everywhere else? Check.
Eeny weeny doll hands? Check.

Not gonna lie, though, I'd totally steal those boots. Those are cute.

Rest of the preview here.

*spoilers and junk from the rest of the preview*

Taking away Jean's red hair? Bad. Giving Ultimate Jean long hair? Bad. Passing up an opportunity to establish Ultimate Madelyne Pryor as an alternate personality/alias of Jean? UNFORGIVABLE.

I kid. Sort of.

Her nipples are censored by white light off the cabinet mirror? It's like they're not even trying!

So...that's supposed to be Ultimate Jean Grey with mental problems/Ultimate Madelyne Pryor? Or am I missing something?

Doesn't she still have the Phoenix "whatever-it-is" type powers? I honestly hate Madelyne Pryor and all this gothic lolita look they gave her seems more along the lines of Dark Phoenix a la Ultimate Comics.

I have to admit, I'm a sucker for scenes that make it clear how neat having telekinesis would be.

Another thing: this woman has an entirely different skull structure to Jean, with a rounded child's face and pouty lips rather than the original's square-ish jaw and thinner mouth.

Not sure I like this. We'll see. Obviously don't have terribly much faith for Jeph Loeb.
I do think Jean has a history of possible mental issues though (or I forget if it was Phoenix/her powers all along)

Just visually Jean looked neat and somewhat unique in the ultimate verse, which is a shame they had to change.
Looking at the last page in the preview, I went "Oh there's Blobs head. Oh. There's Blobs body. Over there."

Well, I think that there's a pretty god chance that that is Jean. In the UltUniverse, the X-men are publicly known figures, so growing her hair out and dyeing it, as well a dressing completly differently, are pretty good ways to go unnoticed. Combined with telekinesis and zooming in on Scott in the dead mutants page, I'd defintitely say that's Jean. And god help Quicksilver if he ever runs into her, because all the superspeed in the world isn't going to save you from an angry Jean Grey.

Also, am I the only one who finds it hilarious that there's a whole ton of dead X-men, but Jean of all people is still alive?

Feh, I think this, like the first issue of Ultimate X is decent to good. It's certainly the best thing Loeb's written in a while (I know, that's an incredibly low standard).

The idea of seeing a bunch of vignettes about what's left of the mutant race and how they are dealing with both the trauma of Ultimatum and the current status quo is interesting. It helps that there are enough people on Ultimate Marvel Earth who don't reflexively go "Aah, Mutant, kill it with fire!" that there's a chance for a reasonably balanced discussion.

so for about 5 minutes I thought that the blue boxes were the girl's thoughts and thought that she was a transgendered individual

I feel quite dumb

I don't really agree on the arms and hands. The hands, arms, and torso at least all seem in proportion to me. If not, then that cover and I have something in common.

Wow, honey, for as mysterious as you allegedly keep yourself, you sure do encourage the voyeurs.
