i definitely didn’t think you were excusing it!! (lol i’ve always wanted to say ”it’s a comic. fuck realism.”) but yeah. ugh. the worst part about ultimates is them trying to be “realistic and gritty”. sigh.
my friend Eddie REALLY likes ultimates and sometimes I just want to punch him because FUCK ULTIMATES, MAN
I read the first volume of Ultimates and I was like “Okay this is fine. I mean, it’s a angsty but I suppose it is realistic and Cap is kind of a douche but maybe he’s just sad and they’ll work this out and be friends in the next volume.” However I thought it was all pretty okay - stupid costumes aside (DO YOU THINK THIS A STANDS FOR FRANCE?!?! - instant classic)
then I read some more ultimates
and a little bit more
and I just said
NOPE. SEE YA.
