Comics Review for Week of 23rd Nov: Blackest Night & Ultimate Avengers

What a bumper week for comics. DC Comics takes the cake again this week with issues of Green Lantern #48 and Blackest Night #5 which sees the return of one particular dead superhero and the profound effect he has on the living. Can’t guess who? Well, take a look below:

Not forgetting Marvel Comics, the Ultimates Universe is currently on the mend. If you were left with a bad taste in your mouth after reading Ultimates 3, well, fret not as Ultimate Avengers is a return to form with Frank Millar back on the helm.

Taking place right after the events of Ultimates 3 and Ultimatum, Ultimate Avengers is currently into Issue 4 (out of 6). Here’s the story so far:

  • In the Ultimates universe, Captain America actually had a son who goes bonkers, cuts of his own face and becomes the..wait for it…Red Skull!
  • The Red Skull is now in possession with the blueprints for the Cosmic Cube and is constructing one.
  • Nick Fury has assembled a new team of Avengers to deal with the Red Skull and a Captain America gone rogue.
