More of an U Iron Man novel then a general Ultimates novel. Friedman writes it like a Star Trek novel which adds a cool dynamic to the team. ( )

I had had no idea that novels like these existed until recently, so I was really excited to find that there were two based on the Ultimates. This one is set after the first volume of Millar's Ultimates ends.

The book wasn't that great. It was okay, and it did give me the Ultimates fix I was looking for, but the writing was rather bland and I didn't like how some of the characters were portrayed. The plot was also pretty transparent; it was pretty obvious from the start that the Tomorrow Men weren't all they said that they were. I would have liked better characterization and more depth to the story. I'm hoping the second Ultimates novel will be better. ( )

Book description
The Ultimates -- the first government-sponsored cadre of Super Heroes -- was assembled to face threats to humanity too insanely powerful forother operatives to handle.

Led by a general who gave an eye in the service of his country, the super-powered roster includes a billionaire playboy in a high-tech suit of armor, a World War II super-soldier whom fate has thrust into the twenty-first century, an environmentalist icon who claims to be an ancient Norse god, and a scientist whose mutant powers allow her to shrink to the stature of an insect.

But even the Ultimates are unprepared for a quintet of mysterious visitors who appear in the midst of the team's top-security base of operations, claiming to be emissaries from the future.

These "Tomorrow Men" say Earth's civilization is at a crossroads -- on the verge of enslavement by a secret, immensely efficient organization known in the future as Tiber. Only the Ultimates have the skills and the firepower to ferret Tiber out of its nests around the world and crush its plans for global conquest.

But there is much more the Tomorrow Men will not say. After all, they don't want to alter the timeline any more than they have to.

But wealthy Tony Stark, aka Iron Man, is dying by degrees of an incurable medical condition. For him, the temptation to make an additional change in the timeline may be too great to ignore -- though mankind's future might be damaged in the process.
