    I didn't think it was possible for Jeph Loeb to redeem himself. Some of the stuff he's written? Pure crap. However, this was fun! Yes, most of the original characters are dead, but since it's the Ultimate Universe...well, I guess that's ok. So what we have here are pretty cool introductions to some of the new X-Men. Sons or daughters of the original characters, a few surviving original characters, and then some new guys. Oh yeah, and the Hulk. What?! Trust me. It's the coolest part.

    So this turned out to be pretty dang awesome! Great artwork and great story and I really had misgivings about it.

    My initial reaction to this had been pretty positive. But as I was reading other Goodreads reviews before writing this (as I normally do) I came to realize I only thought it was good because my bar of expectations from a Jeph Loeb story was so incredibly low. I feel the best I can say was, yeah, it wasn't utter shit. The narration during each issue was something I really didn't like. What was being said was good, but the way it was paced out over every panel just didn't fit what was going on. It My initial reaction to this had been pretty positive.

What was being said was good, but the way it was paced out over every panel just didn't fit what was going on. It felt like it should ove been contained once or twice at the beginning and end of every story, instead it was just floating there, taking me out of the story going on before my eyes. Another big sticking point for me was the way Sabertooth was drawn. He REALLY didn't fit in the Ultimate world. It was especially highly unbelievable someone looking like that was wondering around, drinking in bars with out everyone in eyesight calling the cops. He was OBVIOUSLY a mutant as they kept pointing out through the whole story, mutants were now shoot on sight. The final thing that really got to me was The Hulk. He didn't seem to serve any real purpose in the story and it was not ever half explained how he was so smart. All Jean did was mention she could handel it, but they never even mentioned that she DID handle it.

    Gratísima sorpresa, mitad mérito del genial dibujo de Adams, y mitad mérito del guion de un Loeb bastante inspirado, casi irreconocible con respecto al pochoclo con patas que fue Ultimatum. Me gusta cómo presenta a los personajes nuevos, me gusta cómo "esconde" y replantea a los viejos, y me gusta el desarrollo general. ¡Hasta me dejó con ganas de leer más! Otra buena muestra de que cuando Jeph Loeb tiene ganas de divertir y divertirse puede llegar a niveles más que dignos.

    Excellent group of characters all handled (and "introduced") very well and even handedly, with superb illustration from Arthur Adams! If they keep Loeb and Adams together on this it could be very fun indeed!

    A story is only as good as it's narrator. In Ultimate Comics X, the narrators are humans, who share a bond with each of the mutants in the comic.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this. I like the idea of the X-Men on the run, no costumes, no school. I hope the next series follows this path. Also, it's nice to actually see some heart back in the Ultimate X-Men.

    Decent origins story. Interested in seeing what they intend on doing with the characters but it seems the series was stopped.

    I’ll just say it, I’m a fan of the Ultimates series. I still have some Ultimate X-men to hunt down and read, but all in all, I really like the direction of the Ultimate installments.

Scattered, and without purpose many are in hiding, while others are unaware of what they are. In this introductory volume, the next generation of mutant heroes are brought together by "Karen", better known as Jean Gray, who after the fall of the X-Men finds herself in anguish and alone. Most of the others are new to the universe, although several are descended from the original bunch. Depth is given to each of them through the narration of their loved ones; whether a father, mother or another, they all speak about the "origins" of that mutant. Each narrated back-story overlaps the present events that are occurring, which is an unusual manner in which to deliver it, but very effective in that the pace, which could have been dragged down by creating separate images, is kept eventful. Some stunning art does justice to the X-Men name, with detailed images, beautiful action poses, expressive faces, and a great deal of textures. Each chapter focuses on one particular member, with the colour scheme altering slightly to match their nature. The artist's depiction of all of them is fresh, and well-suited to a new generation of X-Men fans. Derek's design is particularly good. Not much happens plotwise, as this volume is primarily a means to showing the new teams formation. Barely a hint of what their mission will be is alluded to at the end, but it is enough to look forward to the next volume. Due to the new content of this series, it requires little knowledge of what happened previously, making it easy for someone new to the X-Men universe to understand. The world has not turned out well for mutants, so it will be interesting to see how they survive without the safe haven that Xavier had created.

    Ultimate Comics X: Origins by Jeph Loeb takes place shortly after the events in Ultimate X-men where the deaths of most of the X-Men take place and mutants go into hiding. Normally this would be a terrific opportunity to bring new characters into the fray, much as what happened when Marvel released its 2099 line a few years back.

Normally this would be a terrific opportunity to bring new characters into the fray, much as what happened when Marvel released its 2099 line a few years back. And with Jeph Loeb at the helm you would expect the stories themselves to be strong and emotionally gripping. They're not. There is actually very little about this comic that is compelling, even the Hulk joining the mutants doesn't quite do it. There is a new Angel who looks much more like a gargoyle. The son of the Blob who is, well pretty much the Blob. Quicksilver, Mystique and Sabretooth are the bad guys, but aren't they always? The biological son of Wolverine joins the good guys, so it's basically the same cast of characters but the next generation. And unfortunately there isn't anything about this next generation that makes it worth following. With one exception. Karen Grant. Also known as Jean Grey. With the deaths of all the X-Men, Jean has gone into hiding and now goes by the name of Karen Grant. But when circumstances force her to step back into the fight, she is now the defacto leader of the new X-Men. And she is a tougher and far more brutal Jean Grey. Karen carries this tale and it is her that we flip the pages for. But this is a team oriented story and in this it fails. Had it been about Jean alone, it might have been worth the telling. A sad and poor effort from one of the prevailing writers in comics today.

El resultado final se queda a medio camino de ambos extremos, en parte por la típica sensación de que lo que aqui nos cuentan en 5 números antaño se hubiera hecho en unas pocas viñetas.

    Back in my high school days anything drawn by Art Adams was not only far and few between, but also a complete joy to witness. Thankfully, Art Adams still has it and has never lost his magic touch. I knew going in this was supposed to be a popular tale because it took 2-3 years of waiting for the trade-paperback.

It annoys me how publishers will slow to a crawl releasing good material in many formats as the story was collected in HC first, a year ago. While I enjoyed the complete package, ie., the story and art, nothing about it was so grandiose that I'd put it in my Top 5 of all time. The story seemed familiar and one contained in a thousand other superhero comics and the fact the story didn't have proper denouement/closure really dimmed the experience for me as a reader. I remember liking Marvel books post bankruptcy so much more when the writers wrote a beginning, middle, and end. Unfortunately, nowadays folks like Loeb and Bendis think they're giving readers as good an experience by telling a story that doesn't end because that's how Stan Lee did it.

    I normally have zero interest in the "ultimate" universe. I once tried to read the Spider-Man comic and it was awful. I don't even like the name; it implies that there's something lesser about the original universe. But this book was drawn by Arthur Adams. So... Magneto and Charles Xavier are both dead.

The stories are okay, but they're obviously just a prelude, so if you don't plan to continue reading series in this milieu, there's not much point in picking it up. The new characters aren't that interesting: a girl with fire powers, a boy with wings, son of Wolverine, son of Blob... seen it all before. And the Hulk is in it for some reason. Back to the original Marvel universe...that's the "ultimate" for me.

    Although I have not read many of the X-Men comics, I know a fair bit about their story arcs. The events this one relates back to is something I was aware of, so I did not feel lost. Though the stakes are set high, the tension is never really there after each mutant is retrieved. If anything, I tended to feel more for the families than the actual mutants. The one exception to this is Karen, who has to live with the past she tried to run from.

To be honest, I never really heard about this story-line until I picked up the book. I wouldn't have picked up the book unless I saw it on the last chance rack at Books-A-Million for two dollars. Its not to say that the next installments are not good, it just means that no one was willing to buy this 136 page hardcover for twenty five dollars, or eight dollars for that matter. Licencing fees seem to be more of a hindrance for this story than originality.

    There were several things about this little foray into the Ultimate universe that I found enjoyable. 1) I liked pretty much everything about the Hulk and the story surrounding him. His appearance and origin both interested me more than the original. There's also a great scene where he beats the crap out of Sabretooth and that was just entertaining. 2) I didn't hate Jean Grey's character even though I've never cared for her in any of the other series.

Maybe it was the change in her hair color, maybe because there wasn't a storyline involving two men fighting over her or maybe because she wasn't whiny, annoying and unsure of herself. Wolverine's son as a character seemed pretty forced and I can't say I developed a great deal of interest in the storyline but I would pick up the next one if I came across it. Nothing here for anyone who isn't already interested in comics.

Lalu dikembangkan melalui talian darah dan perebutan ahli mutan baru untuk membina semula di antara x-men dan juga kumpulan pihak lawan. Begitupun, ini sahaja tidak mencukupi tanpa ada suatu ancaman besar merangkumi keseluruhan cerita.

    With Jeph Loeb's writing being more miss than hit over the past few years, this was a nice surprise.

    A fun little comic by Jeph Loeb. I really liked where the first five issues were taking the comic. It was a good intro to the characters and a fun little story. I'm not sure why this comic only had one volume either. Arthur Adams art was great and Loeb's story was interesting. I want to know what happens next. I really liked how they included the Hulk in this story. The Hulk was smarter than Hulk Smash, like the grey hulk of the 80's.

    This is a very good run of stories it reintroduces and re-envisions the X-Men team dynamic. It is a solid piece of writing and picks up the pieces from a very hard place. It is closer to what marvel wanted when they first commissioned the Ultimate universe, tell new interesting stories without the weight of a long continuity. It's not perfect but it is very good. The art work is again to a very high standard. Can't wait to see where this series goes.

    The sole purpose of this volume is to provide background and origins for a new super team. It does so in a unique and fun way, with an unusual use of narration and excellent art work. It's just that we've been through this "getting the team together" stuff a million times and no matter how different the approach, there is still a feeling of same-old same-old here. Certainly not bad though.

    Jeph Loeb received a lot of criticism with his handling of Ultimatum,but here in Ultimate X origins he proves that he is capable of writing good stories.Art Adams delivers detailed expressive art .if you like this you'd probably like Brian K Vaughn's Runaways.Runaways Deluxe, Vol. 1

    Shannon Appelcline

    Generally, an OK story of a gathering of new individuals that’s somewhat anticlimaxed by the series suddenly petering out. There’s still good plot here, but Loeb does a terrible job with the narrative boxes which are largely forgettable.

    This was fun. Taking the X book back to it's roots -- outsiders, hunted by the lay, feared by humanity, blah, blah, blah. All that plus Nick Fury. Looking forward to seeing what happens post Fallout.

    An interesting story line was being developed. Not sure where it will go but it will be interesting to see where. The art is well done (as expected of marvel). If you enjoy comics I would recommend meeting the new generation of heroes here.
