I like it more and more.
In some ways it seems closer to the original intent of the Ultimates.
Original and more grounded takes on superhero icons.
A starting from scratch feeling.
Young and talented independents being shoehorned into a corrupted government framework.
Many shades of grey.
Now we need to know who is left.

I thought I would drop it after 4 issues but I'm in for at least another year if it lasts. The Order also seems to be getting better/ NOT worse.

Initiative is a quality book. Draws on all corners of the Marvel Universe and gives us compelling stories. It gets 5 stars from me. I haven't given the order a chance though. Maybe I will read a trade of it if I hear it is worth the price tag.
