So Cap and Wolvie are the source of all the Ultimate Universe?
Not much of a surprise if you read the Ultimates and the mutant worshiping love fest that is the Ultimate line.

Nick Fury is a supersoldier who has been around as long as Cap?
Now THAT is interesting.
Builds on the sinister turn things took with Fury in Ultimate Power.

Art wise it went from terrific to infuriatingly obscure.
The jump cuts and angles of the arrest scene and Fury's prison sequence made it very hard to tell what was going on and actually seemed to make the time line appear occasionally flawed.
Example - if Fury and Howlett are arrested at the same time why does it look like Fury has been sitting in the back of the truck for hours when wolvie is being dragged away?
Is he being transported from the US truck to a Canadian one?
Just very unclear film direction and editing.

I will hang in there but I expected a little more WOW you know?
