Ultimate Origins #4 Review by (January 2, 2011)
Comments: The origin of Ultimate Hulk. Wolverine’s rescue of Nick Fury in Kuwait was detailed in ULTIMATE X-MEN #11. The deaths of the Parkers have always been attributed to a plane crash in ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN, and it doesn’t seem to have been a cover story.



 

Synopsis / Summary / Plot

Ultimate Origins #4 Synopsis by Peter Silvestro

During the first Gulf War, Wolverine rescued Nick Fury during battle and carried him back to safety. In the hospital, Fury is approached by General Thaddeus Ross, who reveals that he knows Fury is the same man who escaped from Project: Rebirth many decades earlier. Fury explains that he returned to the army to keep his vow to serve the country. Ross tells him about the revived Super-Soldier project and Fury’s place in it….

One year later, Fury is in charge of the project to recreate the formula that empowered Captain America; his team: Franklin Storm, Richard Parker, Bruce Banner, and cocky intern Hank Pym. They are given a vial of blood to work with but not told that it is Fury’s…. After months of work, Banner thinks he has discovered the formula. Later, while Parker is meeting with his visiting wife and their baby, Banner tests the formula on himself, as Pym watches. Banner is transformed into a massive green brute, reacting violently to the change. His rampage accidentally kills Richard and Mary Parker, and when the Hulk looks into the eyes of baby Peter, he reverts to his Bruce Banner form. Stunned by the enormity of what he has just done, Banner is easily knocked unconscious by Fury….

Today: As the Fantastic Four examines the alien stele in phone consultation with Tony Stark, it takes control of Sue’s mind and speaks through her: it is a Watcher, one of a hive culture that observes and records significant events in the universe. It is now here to witness the coming devastation….
