Plus: For years, Professor X has championed the peaceful relationship between mutants and humans. But with racism and paranoia growing, the president decides Xavier--with his mysterious psychic powers and shrouded background--might be the bigger problem. His solution: get the government involved in the mutant-training business. With teh help of Emma Frost, the president handpicks a class of "New Mutants" to serve his political agenda. But who is this mysterious Emma Frost and what is her connection to Xavier?

4.0 out of 5 stars A year's worth of Ultimate X-Men. Dec 4 2012
By THowerton - Published on Amazon.com
Collecting a year's worth of Ultimate X-Men #34-45 one of the things that is nice about this tome is that David Fincher, who draws a lot of facial close-ups and a lot of frowns and scowls, is the artist throughout all of these issues and his style is kinda gritty. If there is one big overarching storyline here it is that top ranking officials deep within the U.S. government are determined to root out and declare war again on all mutants. That story continues to come and go, especially in this series, and writer Brian Michael Bendis both takes his time in telling this story as well as moves the action along in galloping clips. He sets a lot of action and fighting up without much dialogue and then after many pages returns with a few pages packed with character exposition. It's a good formula IMO and Bendis uses some snarky humor playing around with President George W. Bush (almost raretly fully ever seen/ rendered but often shown in silouhette).

For fans wanting to know more of the specifics the storylines contain:

> a healthy dose of Wolverine getting trashed and healing in a mostly solo arc that guests both Spider-man and Daredevil. This storyline ties into the main narrative.
> the X-Men backing Wolverine up when he goes looking for answers from the people who viciously attacked him.
> the introduction of the Angel and a thread about how people look at him and see him as a religious "sign".
> an effective, standalone story of a new mutant who is literally deadly toxic to his town and accidentally kills them all off. Wolverine is sent in to "help out."
> the introductions of Karma, Dazzler, and a Presidentially sponsered group of New Mutants led by Emma Frost.
> the death of a beloved character when the New Mutants are debuted to the public.

I think that this series, in this collected format, is a mildly compelling read especially if you're a Wolverine fan. I'm not sure how this would have come across broken down into three volumes. 3.75 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ultimate X-Men: Ultimate Collection, Vol. 4 Review Feb. 23 2012
By Xavier Zavala Heras - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I can't believe I already end up reading this collection. It has been such a great run!! I need an Omnibus of this RIGHT NOW!!

First of all, I was impressed how good Mark Millar write Spiderman (yes, the web-slinger is in this book). The guy's SO funny. I LMAO with that. Just awesome.

Again, all hell breaks loose when Magneto is up and running again. How can he be stopped? Can he be stopped?

The combination of great writing with the OVER THE TOP ar of David Finch, makes this book (maybe) my favorite so far.

I strongly recommend the entire saga. Is just too good to be true.

3.0 out of 5 stars Benis saves Ultimate X-Men March 20 2011
By Jacob L. Warren - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
For me, Millar's best work is better than Bendis' best work. But I always felt that Ultimate X-Men was some of Millar's worst work. Had Bendis not taken over with this volume I would have stopped collecting the title. Volume 4 is my favorite volume so far. It's just good enough that I'm not curious to check out Vaughan's volume 5.
