I'm down to only two Ultimate titles: Ultimate Human and Ultimate Spider-man. I wasn't expecting to like UH so much. The characters are true to their previous portrayals in the Ultimates, the story is intriguing, and I actually felt bad for Bruce Banner. I've said bad things about Ellis before, but when he's on, he's on. I really wish he had taken over Ultimates 3 - a Leader arc in Ultimates would have the makings of a classic.

Warren Ellis is almost always good, imo. And though his Ultimate Galactus trilogy eventually failed, it had some inspired ideas and some particularly good "Ultimizations" of classic characters (Mahr-Vehl and The Falcon being the two most memorable). Warren Ellis seems to understand the purpose and structure of the Ultimate Universe better than most. He wrote the best Ultimate FF stuff, even when Doom had hooves and Annihulus never did much, the characterization was generally fantastic (no pun intended).
If anyone should've taken over The Ultimates after Millar, it should've been Ellis.
