    United We Stand collects Ultimates #13-18, Ultimate Spiderman #13-17 and Ultimate X-Men #13-18. The First story about Captain America becoming President of the US was perhaps the weakest of the three storyarcs. It's not horrible but not great either. The whole thing is kind of confusing. The gist? There is a Civil War in the US. Different States are trying to secede and so Cap becomes President and then goes around punching people. Awesome. But um yeah-same old thing.

The Spiderman story arc was essentially him joining the Avengers. This was really good. I like Miles Morales and he is well done. Too bad more of this volume didn't include him. The X-men arc was also not bad. It essentially has Kitty Pryde and has the X-Men fighting against Sentinels as they try to stay alive and fight off militas. It was nothing special. Still overall the artwork was well done and it was entertaining enough. Would I rave about this? Nah. It's one of those you say "it's good" but you shrug. So since you can't see me shrug, I hope the brevity of my review showed my utter disinterest in wasting too much time about this banal story. But the three stars shows I was entertained at the same time.

    I open the book, and the United States is broken up into a whole bunch of different territories fighting to secede. ?? No idea what happened. At all. Texas is it's own country (like it's not already), and California and another state (Oregon, maybe?) are a new country as well. Most of the states have been taken over by various militia groups, and everything is in chaos. Oh. And someone blew up DC, so the president and most of the country's leaders are dead. Whoa. I'm guessing I really missed an impor I open the book, and the United States is broken up into a whole bunch of different territories fighting to secede. ?? No idea what happened. At all.

I'm guessing I really missed an important storyline somewhere... Captain America comes back to save the day! I had no idea he was gone...so (again) I guess I need to go back and find out what happened. Alright. Even without fully understanding the backstory, I had a good time reading this. I love Steve Rodgers, and the first third of the book is dedicated to how he manages to swoop in and put things back together. Captain America has a low tolerance for bullshit politics, so it was fun to watch him trample all over the slimy leaders of these breakaway states. (view spoiler)[They're holding elections for a new President, while Cap and the Avengers are battling various bad-guys. Unbelievably, he ends up getting elected the new Commander in Chief, due to a write-in campaign. Ok. That was a bit over-the-top, but this is the Ultimate line, after all. As far as I can tell, anything goes. I'm rolling with it, baby! (hide spoiler)] So Stryker was the old President. Add this to the growing list of things labeled: Anne Didn't Know So the second part of the story focused on Kitty Pryde and the mutants. To me, this was the best story in the collection. I'm not going to claim to be an expert on the X-Men, because there are so damn many of them that I've never been able to keep up. So maybe someone who has more experience with these guys will have a different opinion than me? For a dabbler (like me) though, this felt like a solid plotline with great characters. Kitty decides to take a stand against the anti-mutant abuse that's happening all over the country. Mutants are being rounded up (or worse), and put into camps. And the bulk of this is happening in the southwest. (view spoiler)[So Kitty killed Stryker? Add that to the above mentioned list... But evidently he downloaded his consciousness (or something) into a Sentinal. So...he's still hunting mutants. And Kitty. (hide spoiler)] I really liked this even without knowing what was going on half the time. I mean, that's got to count for something, right? Last up is the new Spider-Man. Miles jumps into the battle, and proves himself an invaluable member of the team. He's so cute! I just love that little kid! Bowing to Sesana...and her awesome taste. But does anybody know what's up with Giant Girl (or whatever her name is)? Is she a good guy or a bad guy? I. Am. So. Lost. Again, great story, but I need to catch up on some of the older issues in this title. I don't see many glowing reviews for this, but I liked it. And when I picked it up, I really didn't think I would. It was just something I grabbed at the library because it looked newish. I always thought the Ultimate line tended to be a crazy soap opera, and I could never really keep up with all of the madness. But this was fun, it held my attention, and it renewed my interest in this line. I'm going back for more!

    Sesana

    Really only reading the X-Men issues. I'd read the Spider-Man issues separately, and I didn't care enough about the Ultimates to do anything but skim. More than a few issues ago, Kitty said this would be the story of how she became a mutant terrorist, and we're finally getting there. Largely, there isn't all that much going on here, but there are some great scenes, some great pieces of dialog, and the ending is gorgeously disheartening. Really only reading the X-Men issues.

    Good stuff in the Marvel Ultimate Universe timeline (which I am trying to finish up!) Three collected story lines: First, the Ultimates battle on multiple fronts in a fractured America; mutants flee Nimrod and Sentinel robots intent on their eradication into the Southwest to free their imprisoned fellow mutants, and (Miles Morales) Spider-Man confronts his issues to the backdrop of a New York City under martial law.

At least for the time being. Meanwhile, Kitty Pride aka Shadowcat from X-men leads a group of mutants to stand -up against the sentinels that are killing mutants which were created by William Stryker. With the help of Nick Fury, ex-director of S.H.I.E.L.D., Kitty and the group of mutant rebels successfully infiltrated the camp the holds up young mutants and together, they successfully defeated the sentinels. And, there's a new spider-man in town. A thirteen-year old boy named Miles Morales who just started getting used being spidey and have joined the ultimates in protecting the country. --- But, those are just some of the highlights of this volume. And to be honest, it was one of Marvel's best one yet. Of course I know that I'm not reading them in chronological order since I was caught a bit off guard that Peter Parker was dead and there was a new spider-man in town. Gwen Stacy is still alive and kicking and Wolverine had a son named Jimmy who's apparently have a thing with Kitty. But the storyline was pretty solid and a lot of interesting new characters as well as new arcs for old characters. Definitely a must read for any Marvel comic book fans out there.

    I loved Siege, but this follow-up is just plain awful all around. Can't believe that the new Spider-Man, who is just a kid after all, got mixed up in this crapfest (or that this volume basically reprints everything from Ultimate Comics Spider-Man, Vol. 3--talk about double-dipping by Marvel!). Hopefully things can rebound from here, or else the Ultimate line should just be discontinued. I loved Siege, but this follow-up is just plain awful all around.

    The biggest Ultimate Universe event is huge in scope but had many pitfalls. First, I liked that these big events affect the entire line of books but editorially there were some hiccups. I think it might have been better to have these events been the theme but have the books less connected. The Spider-Man centered plotline was clearly the best and that's due to Bran Michael Bendis. He handles teenage drama better than anyone. Miles Morales is a treat. The Ultimates were a letdown. The X-Men were The biggest Ultimate Universe event is huge in scope but had many pitfalls.

    Oh, Ultimate Marvel! Following an idle LEGAL PURCHASE of a big collection of Ultimate Marvel books somewhere around 2004, my immature ass was smitten with these BOLD and DARING new reinterpretations of 1960s comic book characters, free of decades of continuity, and perfect for that legendary creature called "a new fan" to jump into after mayhaps seeing a Marvel movie and being interested where these Hugh Jackmen and Tobey Maguires came from originally. I kept following the line through its ups and Oh, Ultimate Marvel! Following an idle LEGAL PURCHASE of a big collection of Ultimate Marvel books somewhere around 2004, my immature ass was smitten with these BOLD and DARING new reinterpretations of 1960s comic book characters, free of decades of continuity, and perfect for that legendary creature called "a new fan" to jump into after mayhaps seeing a Marvel movie and being interested where these Hugh Jackmen and Tobey Maguires came from originally. I kept following the line through its ups and (many) downs until about 2011, until keeping up with monthlies became too much of a hassle. In 2015, Marvel made its biggest shake-up to the comics in ages, bringing everything more in line not with any Bryan Singer or Sam Raimi movies, but with their own in-house produced cinematic universe. One of these big changes was to be the destruction/cancellation of the Ultimate line. Hell, I thought, with a clear end-point in sight, I might as well give the remainder of the books a shot! So here we are, having read "Ultimate Comics: Divided We Fall, United We Stand", a collection of the Spider-Man, X-Men and Ultimates story arcs that were wrapped up in that event. America is being torn apart after an attack (I can't remember who or why... maybe some sort of mutant North Korea? It's been years, man!) destroyed Washington and killed most of the nation's leaders, leaving some Iowa rando in charge. States are seceding, anti-mutant sentiment is at peak levels, and an army of Sentinel robots led by the consciousness of bigot William Stryker occupy the Southwestern regions. The book starts off with the X-Men (or what's left of them) led by Kitty Pryde taking the fight to the Southwest, freeing mutants from the Sentinel death camps and building an army. They are aided in this by a disgraced (for what? I dunno -- maybe this wasn't the BEST pick-up point) Nick Fury who was hiding in some old Arizona military tunnels. This arc is pretty good, as it pretty much cuts to the core of what the X-Men oughta be about, and there's a lot of boots on the ground time with refugees and poor oppressed mutants. It's also pretty good at throwing up doubts on whether Kitty will end up more of a Xavier or Magneto type figure. Next up is an arc of the hilariously/unfortunately titled Ultimate Comics: The Ultimates, where we learn about who exactly is behind all this strife: Thor's mischief son Modi, holding a grudge against his father after he trapped him in the World Tree along with all the rest of Asgard for... reasons (again, it's been a while). The art in this arc is quite iffy, and definitely a major step down from Bryan Hitch in the Ultimates' first volume back in '02. While the surprise appearance/introduction of Hydra is handled well, the re-imagining of the terrorist organization as simply an American anti-government militia is rather uninspired, even if they do have evil Asgardian backing. Why would a bunch of hicks adopt that whole thematic octopus thing? If nothing else, reacquainting myself with Ultimate Captain America really made me appreciate Chris Evans' portrayals in Marvel's movies. Despite being a perfect human specimen on the payroll of the most powerful government (?) on the planet, Evans still makes you believe his Steve Rogers is "the little guy". Not so here, where he's almost the platonic ideal of The Man. Note that I don't necessarily dislike this or think it's an invalid alternate portrayal, but it is an easy one. Miles Morales, the Latin-African-American Spider-Man (and only remnant of the Ultimate U to hav survived the Secret Wars shake-up editorially speaking), probably has the best looking and written story out of the three presented here, though that probably depends on how high your tolerance for Brian Michael Bendis' "naturalistic" dialogue is. Unsurprisingly, this also had the least head-scratching moments in terms of prerequisite knowledge of events that happened before this story. Coincidence? Je ne think not! Follow along friends, as the Ultimate Universe and I march merrily towards oblivion! Next up? Ultimate Iron Man!

    While I appreciate the willingness to leave aside the standard 616 tropes, and, since I'm reading this early in 2021 immediately after a group of insurgents stormed the capital, it certainly seems relevant, it just really isn't very interesting, and I was having to constantly make myself keep reading.

The downside is that there’s a sense of inevitability as the Ultimates reunify the country that makes us feel like there’s no alternative (and the sudden release of the Ultimates from jail seems like a rather abrupt reversal of the previous volume). The couple of surprises (the election & the appearance and fate of the big foe) aren’t enough to make it a great story. The artwork is a bit of a letdown too, running from poor to OK [6/10]. Ultimate X-Men. Wood faces the same problem that Humphries did: taking over for a superior writer who was in the middle of a plot. Fortunately, he’s a much better writer. We still lose plots wholesale (among them the SEAR plot, the Ororo in prison plot, and the dead people in heads plot), but he pays a *little* bit of attention to them, which hopefully means he’ll return to them. In the meantime the story of Kitty becoming the leader of the X rebellion is good, if a bit big picture at times [7/10]. Ultimate Spider-Man. This Spider-Man story isn't a very good Divided We Fall story. The first three issues are pure Spider-Man plot, and though they're up to Bendis' usual strengths, they have nothing to do with the nationwide problems. #16 integrates things well, but then #17-18 involve Miles in boring fights that don't advance anything: the good stuff actual happens at home. Fortunately, that all does result in a good Ultimate Spider-Man story. [7/10]. Overall, there’s some nice stuff here, but as a whole the big-picture story obscures a like of character moments and hurts the comics’ depth. More generally, a flawed comic for its failed alignment with the individual series. It's missing Spider-Man #11-12, which were crucial to the UCSM plot. If you're buying the whole Ultimate universe, you'd actually be better off buying the individual Divided We Fall volumes of each comic, so you actually get everything.

    Okay, so I think The Ultimates is literally the best cinematic-style comicbook series in the medium. I got every thrill out of reading this as I would watching it on the big screen. The X-Men plot was kind of a throwaway. Kitty and her story seemed so disjointed from everything else going on in the country. Plus, I haven't really cared for this current lineup of Ultimate X-Men.

While he's been involved with a lot of the things Peter would have been involved in, Miles definitely does his own thing. His wide-eyed wonder at the battles he's thrown in lets us see the events unfolding in this story through his eyes, the eyes of a citizen and relatively normal person, as opposed to the government/SHIELD mentality we see with The Ultimates. All in all, a good story. Loving how cohesive the writers are making the stories in this new "Ultimate Comics" line.

    I enjoyed the art immensely, and the main story of Cap taking on all comers to reunite the USA was good. There are some great smack downs and some touching moments. This graphic novel puts together some random X-Men characters in an arc to fill pages I guess. It shows how Nick Fury fit in. The story was good, but not really worthy of joining this compilation.

Overall, an enjoyable read that could have been put together better.

    Although it had a very interesting plot, I think they could've just divided the event into two separate events: one for the X-Men's war against Stryker and one for Spider-Man and the Ultimates trying to keep America from falling apart after the destruction of Washington by Reed Richards. Of course I found the X-Men story line way more interesting than the Ultimates', but I still wanted more.

I wanted to know more about the liberation of the other mutant camps and what the hell happened after Storm rebelled, but I guess I'm gonna have to just take it as it is and move along. But still I found myself enjoying both conclusions. Not as good as Doomsday, but I'm sure the Ultimate people did their best.

    This hefty Ultimate Comics collection features 6 issues each of UC Ultimates, X-Men & Spider-Man, all grappling with a destroyed and divided America, and it's a very uneven book. The Ultimates stuff is mostly fighting, but I did enjoy the Thor subplot and the Cap as President idea. The X-Men issues were somewhat bland and uninteresting with too many sketchy characters I didn't know. But the real highlight for me was the Spider-Man story. I had no idea how charming and engaging Miles Morales was.

The only drawback was that the story began midstream and took awhile for me to get up to speed. The Spider-Man stuff elevated this collection by an extra star.

    Good crossover. I like that things have lasting consequences in the Ultimate Universe. Ultimate Cap is still a douchebag, but now he's president douchebag? I guess? Still, really liked the story. That said, I still have problems with the overall assumption that America as it currently exists is a good thing... but, hey, that's what comes with reading books about a government sponsored superhero team.

    This was quite good! A brief warning, this is the a compilation of stories and it is in the middle. The endings are abrupt at best and there's a bit of a curve when starting, although it's not that bad. However, this is still a greatly enjoyable compilation. The neat thing is that the three different story lines take place all around the same time. You can use the maps at the beginning of each sub-section to figure out the timing. This was quite good!

    It was really interesting to see the comic roots of the upcoming movie, but a lot of the conflict didn't make sense without a wider sense of context. Even with that drawback, the stories were engaging and often heartbreaking. I strongly recommend this volume to every Marvel fan, preferably before they see the movie!

    Something of a mini-omnibus that collects Ultimates, Spider-man and X-men Ultimate titles for a single event. Oddly collected in chunks instead of chronologically. The Spider-man and X-men bits were pretty fun but the Ultimates are such a unpleasant presence they drag down the whole affair.

    I kinda wish they had sequenced it chronologically, rather than making each title run then back up for the next title.
