CBR Review: Ultimate Comics Avengers 3 #6

I recently reviewed Ultimate Comics Avengers 3 #6 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "When the latest X-Men comic was launched, Millar was annoyed because it involved vampires, too, and would run against his very own vampire story. Except the presence of both stories isn’t what hurts Ultimate Comics Avengers 3, it’s the slow build up to a clever-yet-unsatisfying finish. The payoff in the finale isn’t one that seems worth it. It happens and that’s about it. It seems like Millar anticipated such a reaction when a dying vampire Nerd Hulk accuses Captain America of cheating to defeat the vampires and Cap responds that it was tactics. 'It’s not a cheap, anticlimactic finish, it’s just clever!'"
