No one had a handle on the title the way Millar did. When the title wrapped up recently, it had completely lost any sense of itself.

I actually found Ultimates jarring compared to Spiderman, given how traditionally noble the heroes acted in Spiderman, whereas the Ultimates almost seemed to have bloodlust half the time. It didn't synch up very well.
