Review
Marvel's "Ultimate" line presents new versions of favorite characters, and here the company's oldest super-team gets the treatment. Teenage scientific genius Reed Richards is part of a government think tank composed of bright youngsters from across the country, and with the help of Victor Van Damme he creates a method of teleportation involving other-dimensional travel. But the first full-scale test of theory goes awry, perhaps because of sabotage, and the resulting explosion transforms Reed and his friends. Reed's body becomes almost infinitely malleable; his friend and colleague Susan Storm gains the power to become invisible and create force fields; Sue's brother Johnny becomes a flying, flaming Human Torch; and Reed's childhood friend Ben Grimm gains super-strength but also an ugly, rocklike skin. Van Damme (a.k.a. Dr. Doom in regular Marvel continuity) disappears without a trace. This is quite an enjoyable book; the treatment here is more along the lines of Bendis's work on Ultimate Spider-Man than the more radical revamps Millar gave to the X-Men and the Avengers. Adam Kubert's fine pencil art is in the "widescreen-action" tradition of the other Ultimate books. Recommended for teens and adults at all libraries. --Steve Raiteri (Reviewed March 15, 2005) (Library Journal, vol 130, issue 5, p64)
