CBR Review: Ultimate Comics Thor #1

I recently reviewed Ultimate Comics Thor #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "One of the most interesting and fun parts of Marvel’s Ultimate Universe is the chance to see different versions of familiar characters. In The Ultimates, Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch presented a version of Thor that had a few of the familiar elements, but also differed greatly with the questions surrounding his sanity, legitimacy, and the relationship between Asgard and Earth. A series developing and exploring the character’s past was inevitable and, thankfully, Marvel waited to find the right creative time. Jonathan Hickman and Carlos Pacheco deliver a debut issue that mixes three timelines to present differing perspectives on the thunder god and his fellow Asgardians, while playing with elements from the regular Marvel universe in unexpected ways."
