I tend to enjoy the Ultimate Universe, but most of these annuals just fell flat.

The best of bunch, at least in my opinion, was the Ultimate X-Men annual, although I didn't think that it was amazing. Apparently, Nightcrawler is having some sort of mental breakdown. Or he's just a creepy mutant. I don't think this is giving anything away, since it's pretty obvious from the first couple of panels what is going on there.

Second best was Ultimate Spider-Man. Spider-Man is being used by a dirty cop (also mentioned in the first few panels). Ultimate Daredevil, Punisher, Kingpin, and Kangaroo all make appearances.

The Ultimates and Ultimate Fantastic Four were about equal. In the Ultimates annual, Captain America and Falcon help clean up the United States after some attack. I'm not sure when this annual was written, but it definitely seemed to tie-in with the real-life happenings of Katrina and the aftermath.

The Ultimate Fantastic Four annual has the return of the Mole Man. He somehow manages to abduct the Think Tank and its genius children. It's pretty yawn-worthy. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0785123717, Paperback)

In Ultimate Fantastic Four Annual #2, something strange has happened at Nursery Two, the Baxter Building's Think Tank counterpart in Oregon. It's disappeared, seemingly swallowed up by the earth itself! And if you think that heralds the return of the macabre Mole Man, go to the head of the class! In Ultimate X-Men Annual #2, Dazzler has awakened from her coma only to discover her life is in deadly peril! And even her former fellow X-Men may be powerless to save her as a betrayal within the ranks has left them shellshocked. In Ultimate Spider-Man Annual #2, Punisher and Daredevil return! While Foggy Nelson offers Spidey some legal advice, Police Captain Jean DeWolfe gives him some other advice - on how to take down the Ultimate Kangaroo! And in The Ultimates Annual #2, as the Ultimates clear the wreckage from the recent attack on the United States, a monstrous evil from the past rises from the ashes to launch an attack when America is at her weakest. And with the ranks of the Ultimates severely depleted, all that stands in the path of the long-thought-dead bio-fanatic Arnim Zola is the indomitable Sentinel of Liberty, Captain America, and Sam Wilson, the high-flying Falcon! Collects The Ultimates Annual #2, Ultimate Fantastic Four Annual #2, Ultimate X-Men Annual #2 and Ultimate Spider-Man Annual #2.
