So I really didnt want to buy this issue, but I did anyways. I figured it couldnt be any worse than the first one so I went for it. Im still disliking the characterization of everybody and Spidey is the only one who acts in character for all 5 of his lines. Plenty of action but the art just seems way too cartoonish for me. The only thing I really liked about this issue was that there may be a big consipiracy going on hopefully the bad guy will turn out to be somebody cool that we havent seen yet. I will stay on board, but just for the reveal.

1. Spider-Man's part was completely pointless and added NOTHING to the plot. He was pretty much the only character written not horribly.

2. Hawkeye's way of trying to team up and get info from Spider-Man by shooting him with a paralytic and anesthetic needle? Yeah that would make me want to help out the Ultimates too.

3. Cap leaving a paralyzed 15-16 year old (though according to TWO YEARS LATER, Pete would be 17-18 now, though this isn't completelty Loeb's fault and owes a lot to the Millar/Hitch delays) in the middle of the streets certainly seems out of character too.

4. ZERO progress in who Black Panther is, even though they make a huge deal out of it on the recap page.

5. I'm calling it now: Valkyerie gets her powers by having sex with Thor.
