ComicsVerse Podcast Episode 11: Comics We’re Thankful For (Part 4 of 4) – The Ultimates and Captain America

Ever look back at AVENGERS, the movie and wonder how it all started? Sure, some aspects of the film originated in the birth of the AVENGERS comic, but it was Ultimate Marvel’s (now Ultimate Comics) ULTIMATES that was the real basis of the AVENGERS film.

In part four of our four part series of “Comics We’re Thankful For,” ComicsVerse delves into ULTIMATES and the psyches of Captain America and the Hulk among other characters like Black Widow and Hawkeye. Should Captain America have visited his 1940’s love, Gail? Do you understand why she refused to see him? How was the Hulk portrayed similarly in the film and the comic? All this is discussed and more in our latest podcast. That’s what we think about it, what do you think?
