New Ultimates #3

This is from New Ultimates #3 by Jeph Loeb and Frank Cho.

A flashback reveals that Valkyrie and the other Defenders were given their powers by Loki, who was pretending to be Gunnar Golmen (you know, the guy Loki pretended to be in Millar's Ultimates 2?).

Thor is in Valhalla with Hela. Last issue she she told him that she would let him go if he gave her a child. Now Thor wants her to let him go, but she says she can't; the only way  someone can return to the land of the living is if another takes their place. Thor says he'll kill her then, and she turns around.

The thought bubbles are from Valkyrie, who's narrating the whole issue.

Valkyrie is under the control of the Enchantress and is battling the Ultimates when Hawkeye shoots Enchantress with an arrow, freeing her (Loki seems to want this, saying "Oh, yes" when Enchantress is shot).

Valkyrie attacks Loki, who knocks her sword out of her hands with Thor's hammer.

Tell you what.

Cut out the middle man on this one and just watch 4thletter.net for my man Gavok's Ultimate Edit series.

It's the only way to make this worth a good goddamn.

How, uh, does Loki get to lift Thor's hammer? Or does Ultimate Hammer not have the "worthy" thing going?

I'd tell you if I knew what the hell was going on in the Ultimate universe anymore. I'm only following USM.

Heh. OK. USM's certainly still less grim'n gritty, barely.

[personal profile] darkknightjrk 2010-07-24 05:33 am (UTC)(link)
I'm not sure if it's a "worthy" thing or if it's just really heavy. I seem to remember seeing Hulk smack Thor with the hammer at some point, though it might have been the movie adaptation.

More character death...yay.

[personal profile] lonewolf23k 2010-07-24 01:18 am (UTC)(link)
Hey, at least this death cancels out another one. And Ultimate Valkyrie is a small price to pay for Ultimate Thor.

I was going to say "Needs more pouches" given the whole 90's vibe I get from the look of the comic, but then I looked at Ult Cap's outfit again.

This reminds me of the Vampirella comics Mark Millar wrote in the 90s except actually like a million goddamn times worse than that.

After janet was eaten and Scott assassinated I just don't even care anymore. Like, at all.

You make it sound like you don't enjoy watching characters murdered in horrible ways. That sounds like communist talk to me

How did Scott die again?

Didn't his head explode?

Nah. His arms were blown off, followed by his organs which were blown up and out of his eye sockets causing his eyes to bounce around the room, then explode. His head -then- exploded, along with the rest of him and they all burned to ashes. Which also exploded. eXtreme!

And when did Loki become Namor with a pony tail?

...oh God. I just said I missed Ultimates 2. Shoot me.

"the one honest thing I ever did was die."

No, that line belongs to Phyla-Vell.

Loeb would get a +1 if that line is in next issue. He'd still be deep in the negatives, but it's still a +1.

Whoa, there. I bet Hela turning around killed a lot of boners. On the other hand, a lot of people probably discovered a whole new world.

I hope Valkyrie doesn't stay dead. :( Steve's sweet, though. And, um, so very pretty in those panels.
