The Ultimates line (aka the like 183493 other books with "Ultimate" and "Ultimate Comics" in the title) has been terribly diluted at this point, but this first volume? Bad-@#*. First of all, Ultimate Captain America is 10x better than regular Cap, and for that alone, and that one splash page of his face (you'll know which one I'm talking about the second you see it), this volume is worth reading. And re-reading. Everything else is basically a more exaggerated, more exciting, grittier version of the regular Avengers, which is exactly what Millar was called in to do. And boy did he deliver (at least in this volume, the rest is up for debate).

My favorite series from the Ultimate Marvel Reboot. It was more mature than the others, and lacked the excessive dialogue of Ultimate Spider-man. The story lines are good, and enough has been changed its not a straight retelling. The main problem I found with it was lack of emphasis on what being a mutant really means in the Ultimate Universe, which does come in to play but to get the full picture of what this means, you have to have read Ultimate X-men. (Mutants are even more prosecuted here than back in Earth-616) Also, a lack of establishing the actual limits of Giant Man's powers, since he was shown to grow at will, but need "shrinking serum" to shrink back to normal, and a lack of establishing the hinted-at secondary powers and mutant effects on the Wasp. Also, in the second story ark, the aliens become violent suddenly and without reason. They attempted to explain it but it made no sense. Other than that, it was a very good comic. I recommend the Ultimates.

Sexual Content: There's some (always object and/or shadow censored) minor nudity due to the fact that while Wasp and Giant-Man grow and shrink, their clothes stay normal size, resulting in the wasp falling right out of her clothes and Giant-Man shredding them. The Hulk also shouts some... odd things during his rampages.

Violence: Its a superhero comic, what where you expecting? The fight scene that seemed most brutal was actually the domestic violence between Dr. Pym and the Wasp, just because of what was happening.
