NOW THAT'S A SPLASH PAGE: Ultimate Thor Delivers The Ultimate Warning

Splash pages, you gotta love 'em. A blank canvas where the artist can hit you with a large dose of illustrated 'wow'. This week, while I used to steer clear of ongoing alternate universes, one book blew that notion out of the water. From the stunning character designs of Wasp, Giant Man and Thor by Bryan Hitch alone, I knew Ultimates would be an Avengers book like no other, full of great scenes just like this;

No matter what universe you are in, if Thor points his hammer at you and issues an order - you do it! While it would be pretty sweet to see this look for the Asgardian God of thunder make it to Hollywood, the Ultimates, even years on is still a blockbuster in print.
