CBR Review: The Ultimates #3

I recently reviewed The Ultimates #3 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "Situations that seem hopeless are staples of superhero comics. If the bad guys don’t appear stronger than the good guys, the conflict isn’t engaging and falls flat. The Ultimates has had its share of ‘hopeless situations’ in the past and, somehow, it looks like Jonathan Hickman has found one that tops them all in the Children of Tomorrow and their ever-expanding City. Presented as only one of these crises for S.H.I.E.L.D. to handle in the first issue, the Children of Tomorrow have taken over as the primary antagonists, 'destroying Asgard, killing the gods -- and cutting Thor off from the very source of his power' last issue. In this issue, Hickman manages to one-up that shocking finish by having S.H.I.E.L.D. and the Ultimates completely useless in the face of the Children of Tomorrow."
