CBR Review: Ultimate Avengers vs. New Ultimates #1

I recently reviewed Ultimate Avengers vs. New Ultimates #1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Ignore the cover with its big 'Death of Spider-Man' banner and the action shot of Nick Fury’s Avengers fighting against the Ultimates, because neither apply to this comic yet. Picking up where Ultimate Comics Avengers 3 left off, this series could have easily been called 'Ultimate Comics Avengers 4' and looks to be not just a culmination of the plot threads begun in the first Ultimate Comics Avengers series, but also some of the ideas and character bits first seen in The Ultimates. It’s a slow start to the big concluding story/half of a big crossover, but that quiet way of easing into the story is very effective, giving a steady rise as the comic goes on until it hits the cliffhanger finish."
