Ultimates And Movieverse

After seeing the Avengers and Iron Man 3 films, it is good to reread The Ultimates which still holds up for me as what I call a "perfect comic" by which I mean a perfect combination of good script and good art. This is the comics universe that the Movieverse is derived from.

Fury says that he should be played by Samuel L Jackson and also that his nose has been smashed more often than Robert Downey Junior. The President of the United States appears as do lookalikes of Kent, Lane and Olsen.

We learn far more about the Chitaurai on page than on screen. The two media are so different that they are not really comparable but, so far, I think that the graphic novels give us more and can be appreciated at greater leisure.
