    Guys guys guys, there's a very simple and satisfying response to this particular kind of stupidity.It is as follows.

    Go suck a dick!

    See?Simple is best.Besides whoever this person is it's obviously so braindead it wouldn't get your witty retorts anyway.

    Hey Rock Golem, as much as the first-ers suck, how is "go suck a dick" an insult anymore? How does that sound insulting to the gay men, bisexuals, and women?

    People who say first suck.

    But what do I know? I'm the guy who requested Ultimatum twice in the message board (look in the video you'll see my name pop up twice), if that annoyed you at all Lewis I apologize.

    Why would Super heros need GOOD PR!?!? They are superheroes! They are the embodiment of good PR. In fact, having them worry about good PR just gives them bad PR.

    Not to mention-HOLY CRAP! Check out the rack on Black Widow! 0__0 And is she giving him a handjob?

    Daaaaamnnn

    Revealing.... Isn't it?! :D

    What's more annoying, someone saying first, or someone acting like a bitch because someone said first?
  • anaeuphis
    The latter obviously, because as long as these douchebags continue to get attention - negative as it might be - they'll stay douchebags.

    Yes, thank you.
    We all need that.
    Another person saying first.

    Anyways, great review Linkara!

    LOL That title picture made me laugh so hard. xD
    This looks like it will be truly interesting.

    Nice Linkara! xD

    And I also agree with "WTH Marvel." It's creepy as heck they made Wanda and Pietro together. Just...ew all together.

    *coughs* ADAMANTIUM RAAAAAGE!!!

    This was a really funny episode :D OMG I have one of Loeb's books (one of two comics i actually own)Batman: Dark Victory , i believe. and you're right about his writing. I didn't really like it, and it was a bit boring :P.

    P.S. Little Kuriboh is awesome! :cheer:
  • TonySki
    wow. that was a Loooong intro before the credits. was almost expecting a full hour show after that.

    Sonic the Hedghog? I REALLY hope you don't mean the Archie series.
  • Marsten
    To be fair, Lewis is a DC fan far more than a Marvel fan, so it's really not fair to expect the same level of disgust at these comics as fans of the series who had to put up with a pretty solid bunch of comics right up until they took a cosmic nose-dive here. So good work on reviewing them despite your reservations.

    Similarly, I'm guessing you (if you're reading?) don't much care for non-superhero comics either, like many of my favorates (mainly things like Y The Last Man, Transmetropolitan, Sandman, Bone and so on), but I've found that Brian K. Vaughan (writer for Sandman) also worked on Marvel's Runaways, which took a very similar nose-dive recently, namely when Joss Whedon took over. Roughly the issues #25-30, where the characters went back in time to 1910 New York, which was frankly a garbled, incomprehensible and tedious mess.

    I'd ask you to review it if you'd like, and can send you a copy if you'd want one. Drop me a line on zanafarr@yahoo.co.uk if you're interested.

    Linkara:
    OH MY GOD!! HE ATE TOO MUCH PUDDING!!

    All I did was swallow a TicTac!! How da hell could this happened?!

    Really!! Good ones!! Love it:lol: Awesome review, Linkara!!
  • punchline36
    Ah yes Ultimates 3. Magnificent crap.

    So sir, you applaud Hush but are repulsed by Long Halloween and Ultimates? You're entitled to your opinion but seriously, Hush ("I didn't want my mother to live! So I set up an insanely pointless plan to get ludicrously misguided revenge!") is supposed to be better than the Long Halloween?

    Hilarious video as always. keep up the good work.

    But seriously, Hush?

    I read the Ultimate series Spider-Man a lot.
    I also like the original series more, it's version of Venom, the Goblin story, etc. are kinda more interesting though.

    Mary Jane's just a remixed version of Gwen in the Ultimate comics and Gwen's just the 90's kid turned into a girl (OKAY OKAY, CRUEL).

    But I did like the way it portrayed Venom, I still prefer the dark blue colour scheme of the original Venom but, I did think that Peter being almost brothers with Eddie, only to be turned by Eddie in the end was a little more interesting.

    I also thought that it had mimicked the original Green Goblin 2 comic (I never read about the Ultimate version of Harry in the comic).

    But, I liked the art, Mark Bagley's art at least, Stuart Immonen's good and maybe better at the females but Bagley made a style to Ultimate Spider-Man.

    But don't be mad at me because I have to say this too, I used to read Ultimate Spider-Man more often because I read it in continuity, volume 1, 2, etc. The stores and libraries don't really have volume 1, and 2, on the WHOLE Spider-Man series.

    Especially when you have, Web of Spider-Man, Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Spectacular Spider-Man, Spider-Man Unlimited (all 3 completely unrelated versions), and even when he dives in to Secret War and Civil War. It's much harder to follow when not made available.

    But I say one more time, I like the original series better.

    Was that 'hello' Little Kuriboh?

    *Edit* I guess it helps if I watch the credits. XD Yay Little Kuriboh~
  • realms1578  - Why AT4W?
    First off, I am appalled that you and the other non-Doug reviewers don't have your own pages on the forums.

    Secondly, why did you pick the name "Atop the Fourth Wall" for your reviews? I know what the fourth wall is and that it applies to any medium of storytelling, but it doesn't jump out at me to say "comics" at all, and that has always bothered me about your reviews. Had someone asked me, "Hey, have you ever watched 'Atop the Fourth Wall'?" I would never have assumed it was about comics at all. Why didn't you pick a title that had a more direct relationship to comic books and the comic book industry?

    We do. Scroll down to the video producers forums - mine are in "Inked Reality."

    It's just what popped into my head when I started the blog.

    Sorry, your response wasn't there when I was posting.
  • tiggerpete
    dude, who gave your response a thumbs down? seemed weird to me is all
  • LunarLycan

    Actually, the fourth wall is the view from which we look into these stories. They, usually, don't look back. The events portrayed in comics are controlled by people on our side of the wall. So, Linkara has to sit "Atop of the Fourth Wall" in order to give his view point on what was happening on either side and how one affected the other. It's actually clever, but only if I'm right in my guess.

    Awesome review as usual. A minor thing though...Loeb is actually pronounced like "lobe" and Sale is actually just...well, "sale"

    Other than that, nice job. :)

    I like the Sonic series. Unless you're talking about the Fleetway series, I think it's weird to say the Archie series is bad, because I enjoy it.
  • franklyimaperson  - horry for lols

    it's good to see you not so enraged this time
  • johndeadpool
    Reminds me of when antman....um.....pleasure d his wife in the avengers, in the most mentally scarring sex scene in comic book history
  • tomvw
    I quite liked the only Ultimates series I ever read, Ultimate Spiderman (though I haven't picked it up since Bagley stopped drawing it)
    So I don't really know that much about the rest of the universe. But this does look bad beyond belief, deserving of a good thrashing :D

    Anyways, great review!
  • JohnnyJohnJohn  - where?
    where's the rest of "the dark knight strikes again"?

    I don't know, the first two runs weren't all that bad. At least you could follow their stories. But, Ultimates 3 just destroyed it's own continuity. Everything from character designs to motivations was just thrown out of the window. It's okay to have a separate universe for new stories, but at least keep it straight. Though why everyone in this universe is bred to be a backstabbing moronic asshole is beyond me.

    I liked the SNES Maximum Carnage theme batter then the Genesis one.
  • Linkara
    avatar
    And I liked the Genesis version more than the SNES version. Different tastes. XD
  • FullMetalNinjaX
    avatar
    Okay, that's cool. but what do you think of the full Green Jelly version, Carnage Rules?
  • Erin-Chan

    I can get you video game music from pretty much any Genesis, SNES, NES or Game Boy series games if you are interested.
  • arberthewiz
    Linkara do you think the bone seris is a good series.
  • chibiKATANA
    avatar
    wow...i love your reviews as always
    liked your joke about the tic-tac.
    im not much a comic reader but, when did quicksilver and the scarlet witch started to be together?
  • OfficerBullocks
    Scarlet and Quicksilver?
    What the hell Marvel?
    I'm now suddenly not surprised Marvel sold to Disney.
  • Zolton
    I didn't much care for Ultimates either. It's just a trendy Avengers without good characterization.
