Read full description of the books:
In Marvel‘s Ultimate line of comics, the team called the Ultimates is what a long time fan would consider the traditional Avengers with the likes of Captain America, Iron Man and Thor making up the team. However, the Avengers in this reality are a covert black-ops wet work group that gets the jobs that are too dirty for the more public Ultimates. Since they’re doing the bloody work, Nick Fury needs a bullet-happy maniac on the payroll so naturally he captures Punisher and forces him on the team by implanting a device in his skull that will give him painful jolts if he doesn’t stick to killing only the people that Fury wants dead.
The Avengers are also made up of War Machine, Hawkeye, Black Widow and a new character named Tyrone Cash who was the beta version of The Hulk, and their first assignment together is a doozy. Some freak with a flaming skull and a motorcycle with fire for wheels has been killing several rich men connected to the White House. Since politicians can’t have their biggest campaign donors getting ganked, the order has come down to find and kill the guy everyone assumes is a mutant or some other super-powered weirdo. The Avengers don’t realize that they’re going up against a genuine spirit of vengeance from hell called Ghost Rider.
I usually like Millar’s darker style with superheroes and the way he manages to ground his stories in a recognizable and more realistic world. He actually managed to get me interested in this Punisher (Who I generally don’t care for.), and I was excited to get the Ultimate version of Ghost Rider.
The problem was that there’s some apple and orange mixing going on here. There’s a lot of set-up with the background and capture of Punisher and the recruitment of Cash and that had a lot of promise, but making their target be a supernatural entity just doesn’t work well. There’s a bit of common ground in motivation between Punisher and Ghost Rider, and the Ultimate version of Hawkeye, but having a team that’s primarily about big guns and punching stuff really hard fighting a demon from hell just doesn’t work very well. It’s too out of balance.
Still kind of fun and with some decent character work, I would have liked a villain that was more closely matched to the heroes of the story.
