Spider-Man and the Green Goblin. The X-Men and Magneto. Strange beings with incredible powers have risen up to challenge the old order, and ordinary citizens are scared witless. The government's solution: a small but lethal army known as the Ultimates, created to protect humanity from the newly rising threats to mankind! Among those considered for membership: Iron Man, a publicity-seeking capitalist sporting a self-made personal assault suit; Giant-Man, a Prozac-popping scientist with an inferiority complex as large as his stature; the Wasp, a petite powerhouse with a sordid secret; the Hulk, a brilliant, gentle man with an inhibition-overpowering addiction that may tear apart everything, and everyone, he loves; Captain America, a star-spangled super-soldier with John Glenn's buzz-cut cool, John McCain's politics and Mike Tyson's right cross; and Thor, a New Age guru who may either be the living son of a Norse god ... or a lunatic with a big hammer!
