Ultimate Origins – Brian Michael Bendis

Some time back there was a comic which claimed the Marvel Universe was made by design. By that I mean there was a government conspiracy to create the heroes we all love i.e. Banner was set up to be bombarded by Gamma Rays and turned into the Hulk, the Fantastic Four got that way because they were suppose to hit that radiation field, etc. This comic does a similar thing, but with the rewritten history of the Ultimate line of comics, and Bendis does a very fine job. Just another reminder why I’m bummed that the line was canceled.
