Ultimate Six #1-7

Post by Col_Fury » Wed Nov 05, 2014 8:37 pm

ULTIMATE SIX #1 (November, 2003)
By Brian Michael Bendis, Joe Quesada & Trevor Hairsine

APPEARANCES:
Electro, Captain America, Iron Man, Black Widow, Dr. Octopus, Sandman, Green Goblin, Nick Fury, Hank Pym, Kraven the Hunter (Sergei Kravinoff), Hawkeye, Thor, Wasp, Sharon Carter

SYNOPSIS:
Electro wakes up from his coma and kills two FBI agents. He jumps out the window and is arrested by the Ultimates. He’s imprisoned alongside Dr. Octopus, Sandman and Green Goblin. Nick Fury tells them that Hank Pym will try to rehabilitate them. In Hollywood, Kraven the Hunter gives a TV interview and announces that he’s going to hunt Spider-Man again. After the interview, he’s arrested by the Ultimates for altering his genetic sequence to gain super powers.

NOTE:
The recap page gives Black Widow’s full name as Natasha Romanov.

ULTIMATE SIX #2 (November, 2003)
By Brian Michael Bendis & Trevor Hairsine

APPEARANCES:
Green Goblin, Dr. Octopus, Electro (Max Dillon), Hank Pym, Iron Man, Nick Fury, Captain America, Thor, Wasp, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Kraven, Sandman

SYNOPSIS:
Dr. Octopus offers to help SHIELD with their research. For some reason, Nick Fury asks the Ultimates their thoughts on it, and they don’t see why not. Dr. Octopus is shown to his new lab, and he immediately kills the SHIELD scientists he was supposed to work with. Dr. Octopus frees the other captive villains.

NOTE:
Green Goblin is called “Norman” here, even though we currently have his name at the MCP as “Harry” and his kid as “Harry Jr.” I looked up Ultimate Spider-Man #1 on Marvel Unlimited, and he is indeed called Norman there as well. Where in the heck did the Harry/Harry Jr thing come from?

Nick Fury mentions that Hank has left the Ultimates, but is still working for SHIELD, and hopes people (he means Wasp) can keep things professional. That places this mini solidly after Ultimates #13.

ULTIMATE SIX #3 (December, 2003)
By Brian Michael Bendis & Trevor Hairsine

APPEARANCES:
Nick Fury, Captain America, Iron Man, Wasp, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Hank Pym, Green Goblin (bts, also in fb), Dr. Octopus (in fb), Electro (in fb), Sandman (in fb), Kraven (in fb), Spider-Man, Mary Jane, Gwen Stacy, Clay Quartermain, May Parker, Harry Osborn (bts), George Bush Jr

FLASHBACK:
The villains kill a bunch of SHIELD agents on their way out of the facility.
SYNOPSIS:
Nick Fury sends the Ultimates to the villains’ holding facility where they find a barely alive Hank Pym. The Ultimates hold a meeting to figure out what the villains are going to do next, and Fury realizes Osborn will go after Spider-Man, so he pulls him out of school. Meanwhile, Norman Osborn calls the President.

NOTE:
Man, remember decompressed storytelling?

ULTIMATE SIX #4 (January, 2004)
By Brian Michael Bendis & Trevor Hairsine

APPEARANCES:
Green Goblin (also in fb), Dr. Octopus (also in fb), Electro (also in fb), Sandman (also in fb), Kraven (also in fb), Nick Fury, George Bush Jr, Thor, Iron Man, Hawkeye, Captain America, Black Widow, Clay Quartermain, Spider-Man, May Parker, Hulk (bts), Magneto (bts)

FLASHBACK:
Norman Osborn prepares to call the President.
SYNOPSIS:
The President yells at Nick Fury about Norman Osborn. Meanwhile, Osborn puts his plan together. The Ultimates attack Kraven’s production company (on a tip from Osborn), but they don’t know where Kraven is. Fury confiscates all of their computers. Spider-Man calls his aunt. When SHIELD begins going through the computers, Dr. Octopus hacks the connection and sends Electro through. Electro cuts the power to the Triskelion and the Green Goblin crashes in through the roof.

NOTE:
When the power is cut, a SHIELD agent says they have Magneto (and Hulk) locked up. I guess Magneto gets captured somewhere in Ultimate X-Men sometime after Ultimate War.

ULTIMATES SIX #5 (February, 2004)
By Brian Michael Bendis & Trevor Hairsine

APPEARANCES:
May Parker, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Nick Fury, Thor, Wasp, Clay Quartermain, Captain America, Spider-Man, Green Goblin, Dr. Octopus, Electro, Sandman, Kraven, George Bush Jr, Iron Man, Hulk (bts), Magneto (bts)

SYNOPSIS:
SHIELD agents pick up May Parker. Meanwhile, Norman Osborn threatens the kidnapped Spider-Man; when that doesn’t work he threatens to kill his Aunt May. Spider-Man agrees to do whatever Green Goblin wants. Captain America complains to Nick Fury about people experimenting to make new Super Soldiers. Nick Fury figures out what Osborn will do next (how? I dunno). Osborn and his pals attacks the White House with Spider-Man in tow. The Ultimates arrive to fight him.

NOTE:
Again, SHIELD says Magneto is in their custody, and that they tranquilized him. They also say they tranquilized Bruce Banner.

There's only five villains, so who's the sixth person in Osborn's group? He wants it to be Spider-Man.

ULTIMATE SIX #6 (March, 2004)
By Brian Michael Bendis & Trevor Hairsine

APPEARANCES:
Captain America, Thor, Wasp, Green Goblin, Dr. Octopus, Electro, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Black Widow, Kraven, Sandman, Spider-Man, Harry Osborn

SYNOPSIS:
Everyone fights! Spider-Man wants to make sure his aunt is safe so he fights Captain America until he tells Spider-Man that she’s in SHIELD custody. Spider-Man stays at the White House, but befoe he can fight any villains, Harry shows up.

ULTIMATE SIX #7 (June, 2004)
By Brian Michael Bendis & Trevor Hairsine

APPEARANCES:
Spider-Man, Captain America, Green Goblin, Harry Osborn, Iron Man, Nick Fury, Thor, Hawkeye, Black Widow, Electro, Kraven, Sandman, Dr. Octopus, Clay Quartermain, Wasp, Hank Pym, May Parker

SYNOPSIS:
Harry calms his dad down. When Norman reverts to human form Iron Man shoots him and Thor beats him. The villains are locked up, Hank continues to recover, Peter is reunited with May and Captain America complains to Nick Fury about the government continuing to experiment on Super Soldiers.

NOTE:
For some reason, Harry swears he’s going to make Spider-Man pay for this. Also, even though he put on his costume, Spider-Man never once wore his mask through this series. He’s standing around in front of the White House in his Spider-Man suit with no mask on.
