From Red to Black.

Synopsis: Hawkeye continues to find the serum that creates super soldiers.

What's Good?

So, while the world is possibly going under due to the events in this previous issue and Ultimate Comics: The Ultimates, Hawkeye is still hanging in there. The mastermind is apparently revealed, and Hawkeye's background that was hinted on in other Ultimate series, is touched on (It's about time too). His abilities actually make sense now, especially if you been following either Ultimate Fallout and Ultimate Comics: X-Men.

The main reason why I picked this series up was because I wanted to see Hawkeye in action, not see other characters from a different series try to overshadow him. This is his time to shine.

I was a bit confused when they flashed back to him in prison because I'm not really sure what that had to do with it, so if anyone can explain that, please do. And then...

    Its good to see Kanto's Sabrina is still getting work 0

    After an awesome introductory issue, Ultimate Hawkeye's tone shifts from a tale of superhuman proliferation and villainous science to a chaotic war-zone that Hawkeye and a small contingent of SHIELD soldiers must fight through, only for the aforementioned superhuman proliferation to get much, much worse. But despite this shift in tone, the high quality of the last issue is retained.Being stuck in the middle of a ruined city now populated only by tanks, soldiers, and the occasional supervillain w...
