    Bendis takes over Ultimate X-Men and right away you can tell the "fuck you" everyone originally had and was acting is nearly gone. The main theme of this volume is Logan. From someone shooting him up at a restruant, to going to Spider-man for help, to teaming up with Daredevil, and eventually learning who is hunting him. It's all based on Logan and his idea of how to atone for his sins. On top of that you have some cool reveals and plot progression for characters like Jean and Xavier.

Smaller in scale, but that's why it worked so well. It helped this was Bendis in his prime and he added both Spider-man and Daredevil, both characters even Bendis haters agree he got right. I also enjoyed a lot of the jokes here unlike Millar's run. My only downside was it felt a bit forced on the crossover. Overall though very enjoyable. Hoping to see more good from this run! A 4 out of 5.

    Spider-Man. Daredevil. Wolverine. And, yeah, the X-Men. Great story. Great art. I’m enjoying this series more and more.

    This was a lot of fun to read. It's basically a Wolverine story, mostly teamed up with Spider-Man. I've seen a few of those team-ups, in Ultimate Spider-Man, and I always loved them. This is a particularly good one. It's the first time in this series that Wolverine's past has really been dealt with in any way. And the set up does indeed make sense. When you think about the highly trained foot soldiers in Weapon X whose only jobs were to make Wolverine's (and, later, other mutants') lives miserab This was a lot of fun to read.

When you think about the highly trained foot soldiers in Weapon X whose only jobs were to make Wolverine's (and, later, other mutants') lives miserable... why should we assume that they'd stop? Best of all, in my opinion, is giving Dum Dum Dugan the takedown at the end, criticizing the X-Men's MO. Sure, they got the bad guy of the moment. But they didn't get the bad guy behind the bad guy, and because of how they approached things, they won't. It's nice to sometimes get the reminder that literally blowing the front door open is probably not always going to be the optimal way to handle things. The biggest downfall of the book as a whole is that the visible bad guy is bland at best. Sure, she's a legitimate threat, but she isn't very interesting, either, and she's a literal nobody.

Wolverine is being hunted down and trying to be killed be a group of S.H.I.E.L.D agents. As the book progresses, Spider-Man and Dare Devil come into the scene and try to help out Wolverine. Then Spider-Man calls in the X-Men to try to help out Wolverine even though Wolverine doesn't want the X-Men get involved, he wants to solve everything by himself.

    In this comic X-Men, Spider Man, and Daredevil team up. They need to help Wolverine defeat and mysterious villain that they haven't seen before. The art style is all action, it's the same as every other super hero comic. I liked the plot/setting in this comics just because it was in the city. All super hero comics are set in different places but this one went original with the city. I would recommend this book to anyone that likes the super hero series just because it's three different heroes fr In this comic X-Men, Spider Man, and Daredevil team up.

    Man is this fun, especially after the slog that so much of Ultimate X-Men has been up until this point it is a huge breath of fresh air to have a lower stakes, kinetic story. The art is good but more importantly without being dragged down Magneto's apocalyptic rabbit hole these characters are allowed to really breath for the first time in far too long. At its heart this is just a good X-Men story and up until now, in Ultimate X-Men those have been in short supply.

    Even though this is starring Spider-Man, Daredevil and Wolverine this very much felt like a pure Wolverine story with guest characters. Since I started disliking Wolverine in the previous book I had trouble getting into this at first, but somehow they turned me around slightly, even though I still think he went overboard. It was weird to see that Spidey just... disappeared at one point in the story, but seeing him interacting with the X-Men is always enjoyable for me.

    I really enjoyed this one. I wasn't able to read it all through in a short time (like I would usually appreciate), but even breaking it up, it was still great. The art was very good. Taking a look at Wolverine's motivations and insecurities was great. Seeing the bit of crossover with a couple other superheroes was also great. Overall, a fun read with consistently good artwork and an interesting setting and plenty of action!

    I love Bendis's brief run. Great action mixed in with smaller character moments and small shades of foreshadowing and easter eggs.

Here we have Wolverine teaming up with Spiderman, to some hilarious results. The interplay is great, and continues to improve when Daredevil arrives on the scene and acts as the straight man for Spiderman’s humor and Wolverine’s murder. The action and reasons behind everything are also well done, and we see how some people are taking the idea of Wolverine, a former killing machine, being heralded as a hero. On one level it is the same sort of human vs mutant battle that we have seen before, and the humans are just as racist as ever. The difference is that here we are not being told or shown that every human is a racist dirtbag, and we get to see that some humans, like Spiderman and Daredevil and even non-superheroes like Mary Jane and Dugan, can be good people. Here again we see Jean relapse a bit into the Phoenix, and we start to see that not everyone is too thrilled that the Professor is taking care of it, because he seems convinced that the Phoenix is only a mental condition of Jean, something she made up. And yet, as Thor said at the end of the last arc, there are things that go beyond that. That the Professor is once again assuming that he knows best is seeming more and more dubious, which is good considering. I mean, it is him, after all, that is putting her in danger, that is pushing her to use her powers and especially her Phoenix level powers. The best part about this arc is the ending, though, and especially Dum Dum Dugan. His dialogue is just spot on in criticizing much of the X-Men philosophy up to this point, calling them out on acting far too convinced of their own rightness. As he says it, they act like their actions are supposed to win everyone over, and that anyone who isn’t convinced is a villain or amoral ass. But, in truth, the X-Men have basically been bullies. They embody the idea of might for right, which isn’t really the way to go about most things. The reason, again, that the original X-Men work is because they aren’t really heroes. I mean, they don’t seek the fame and the posterity of heroes. They hide because they know that people aren’t ready to accept them. They are content to do good for mutants and humanity and don’t typically care who knows. But the Ultimate X-Men are all about the fame. They do things to be impressive and heroic. Which is part of Xavier’s mission, to brand the X-Men and mutants in general and make them something the public adores so that their ascension into power can occur. This is not so much about doing good but coming out ahead in the poles. And that it finally gets brought up is refreshing. That Dugan tells them that they shouldn’t be doing things so obviously, so concerned with being perceived as right, he is telling them that they have been arrogant and blind to their own tactics. If this will lead to them further questioning their role in the world and as heroes is yet to be seen, but at least it was brought up. And with that in mind, this arc gets a 7.5/10.

    As I was expecting, there was a slight positive change for the writing quality when Millar left, and Bendis joined. Only slight though, as this comic was incredibly cheesey and campy, but had some good moments in it. Before I even begin to review this thing, I'm still not sure if Millar truly left. Sure, it says that Bendis wrote this comic on the Goodreads page and on the back of the comic I had, but inside the actual comic, it credits Mark Millar as the writer. Huh? That's weird.

Sure, it says that Bendis wrote this comic on the Goodreads page and on the back of the comic I had, but inside the actual comic, it credits Mark Millar as the writer. Huh? That's weird. Anyways, this comic has Bendis staying in his own territory at first, when he introduces Spider-Man into the plot. I already know Bendis can write a good Spider-Man, as Ultimate Spider-Man is easily the best Ultimate series I've read thus far, but he seems to be hitting the reader over the head that Spider-Man is really smart and really geeky. And quite a few of Bendis' jokes, as usual, tend to fall flat as they don't match the tone or feel awkwardly shoved in at times, but I do appreciate his detailed character writing on Wolverine. We've had Magneto, Xavier, Jean, Cyclops, and even Colossus studied a little closer, but Wolverine was always kept back from being shown who he truly was. And this whole plot of him trying to find out his past, and how he can't seem to let go of it even though he's forgotten it, while brief, was still very appreciated. That didn't stop the female spy to be an incredibly stale antagonist. She reminded me of Zemo from Civil War, where the writers were thinking, "Oh! We've gotta have conflict, right? We've gotta have a villain? Well, let's not pull out any big names, let's just pull out a random person with little personality to pull the strings and flesh them out just a little bit." She was dull, uninteresting, and barely got any fleshing out before she left. Bendis has written better... or is it Millar? I'm still not sure. But, one thing that I can always say about a Bendis comic is that I can read it anytime I've got a free hour, and still enjoy that free hour. With Millar I've got to mentally prepare myself for thirty minutes before I dive in, which I surprisingly didn't do as much of for his run of X-Men. It's not perfect, and it's not particularly memorable, but it was a fun read.

    A vast improvement over the last volume! Brian Michael Bendis has made this title readable. While I struggled to get through Mark Millar's run in Volume 6, I breezed through this volume with a smile on my face and more than just a casual interest in the story. Volume 6 focuses mainly on Wolverine. The main portion of the volume features Ultimate Spider-Man and Ultimate Daredevil which helps expand the world view of the series by incorporating some of the other denizens of the Ultimate universe.

Bendis and David Finch both do an outstanding job in executing the story. The writing and art complement each other very well. Finch's art in the last volume was inconsistent and awkward, but this time around it's engaging and consistent. Volume 7 is where I recommend anyone interested in reading this series to start. While you might miss some background history, you’ll be able to reach your own conclusions based on the writing. If not, look it up in Wikipedia.

    Finally Ultimate X-Men is getting better.

    I'm not a huge X-men fan, just like some of the individuals, so this book was good since it just focused only on Logan. The upside was the way Daredevil, Spidey and Wolverine played off each other...nicely written team-up. The downside was Wolverine's healing factor...which seemed to be very inconsistant with the time it took (when the story needed it to take longer, it took longer...when the story needed it to be instant, it was instant).

    Just as I was about to give up on these completely... I think part of the problem must just be that I don't like Mark Millar's take on the material (I've not read anything else by him, so it's possible that I just don't like his work period) because as soon as Brian Michael Bendis took over I started enjoying myself again, which is extra-impressive since this issue is basically just all-Wolverine, all the time.

    Borrowed it from the local public library. As it often happens, you can't always find a series in order when you want to read it at the public library. So, I have read some of these out of order.

    Wolverine leaves the X-Men to investigate his past. A team of Black-Ops military shoot him up and he has to seek the help of Spiderman. As the soldiers get more aggressive, Wolverine also enlists the help of Daredevil and Black Widow. Some brilliant Spiderman/Wolverine interaction and a strong story with solid artwork make this one great fun.

    4.5 stars! I actually really, really like this book now more than I did when I was younger. The first time I ever read this I was a bit put off by the first 3/4 of the book focusing on Wolverine without the other X-Men, but now I really like it. I also loved how true to character Spider-Man is in this as well.

    I loved meeting Spider-Man. Everything he said had me laughing so hard and so much I had a stich in my side by the end. The way he and Wolverine constantly verbally sniped at each other also added an extra layer of funny. I really enjoyed the funny parts, but what I liked the most was getting Wolverine's backstory and showing why he'd done the things he did in previous volumes.

    I love everything Marvel. The storylines are incredible! They have everything you could want: action, adventure, comedy, romance, political intrigue, allegories, metaphors, etc. Some stories drag, some end too soon.

    I was so happy with the last volume, and it seems the momentum is lost. This is a neat little narrative, but doesn't quite continue the neatness of the last. Still, it's kinda cool to see a Spiderman/Wolverine team-up.
