The Ultimates Omnibus - Mark Millar, Bryan Hitch People warned me not to read this, and they were right.

AU version of the Marvel universe of interest only if you like ensembles of assholes. The only really likeable one is Thor, here reconfigured as a Jesus figure sent down by his father Odin to preach against the military industrial complex and bring peace to the earth. Even for superhero comics, that seems like a re-envisioning of Norse mythology which is bizarrely contrary to the original text.

Sordid and depressing.

Oh, and the only two women on the team are a self-hating spoiled rich girl who goes back to her abusive ex-husband, and a traitor.

I only wish I could give this negative stars.
