There really are very few words that can sum up the sheer crassness and awfulness of Ultimatum. While it’s true that almost all of the Ultimate titles other than Spider-Man were dropping off in quality, allowing the one writer whose title had shown the most precipitous drop to write a big universe-changing crossover was not the answer. Truly breathtaking in its banality and terrifyingly unconvincing in both its plotting and its characterisation, this reading order is included only for completeness’ sake.

- Noteworthy solely for being the only title bannered “March on Ultimatum” that actually had anything to do with the story.
- This is also one of the stupidest names for a crossover ever: at no point does any of the alleged masterminds behind these events issue anything that even resembles an ultimatum.
