Mark Millar has been one of the key writers for Marvel Comics in the 21st century. His first major contribution to Marvel was with Ultimate X-Men. Next up was The Ultimates, a new rendering of the Avengers that was to continue building on the success of the Ultimate line. He and artist Bryan Hitch pulled it all off in spades: The Ultimates and its sequel, Ultimates 2, were ensconced at the top of the sales charts every month; what's more, they were critical successes, as well. Amid building a small library of Millarworld indie comic books -- including the titles Chosen and Wanted, the latter of which was turned into a Hollywood blockbuster starring Angelina Jolie -- he managed to write Civil War, the epic seven-issue miniseries that definitively reshaped the landscape of Marvel's heroes.

The thing that I originally loved about the Ultimate Universe was that while no one was safe, it never felt like decisions were made for the sake of shock value. Here, I don't feel that way at all. Its also terribly misleading to call this "Death Of Spider-Man" because there are about six panels with Spidey. Now, those six are important, but that could've been handled in his book. Millar does a decent job of spy versus spy action here but Hulked out versions of other characters has never been a good idea and still isn't. Yu's art can be dynamic but here there are too many panels that are undecipherable. Overall, the book was not what it could've been and should've been. You don't need to read it to enjoy the Ultimate Spider-Man books.
I absolutely love the ultimate avengers. This was a great read and loved the plot
