I prefer Ultimate X-Men. Other than the Bendis run, it has been constistently good.

I concur. Fantastic Four's had a short run of stories that could have done with being shorter, not to mention that whole zombie business, Ultimates is letting itself down with the Shock Moment Syndrome, and Ultimate Spider-Man oft suffers from Bendis Talking Head moments that drift into pages.
Special mention to Brian K. Vaughan for a remarkable run on UXM that actually made me like Dazzler.

I couldn't get into Ultimate X-Men. I admit that I'm unreasonably attached to Claremont's versions of the characters, but it seemed to me that Millar was just "extreeeeme"-ifying the characters just for the sake of being extreeeeeme. Ultimates comes off the same way for me, except even more so.

Ultimate Spider-Man seemed to best exemplify the Ultimate Universe idea of the same basic character, same basic story, told as if if were happening now. I admit, though, that I haven't ready any Ultimate Spidey since the first 25 or so.

I'm thinking about giving Ultimate X-Men a try with Vaugn on it, though, since I love Runaways.

(By the way, why is it that a week's worth of posts on this site always show up at once? Or is it just me?)

Ultimate Fan Four has been good. Except for the zombie storyline.

I like Ultimate Fantastic Four. X-Men tries too hard to be edgy, in my opinion, though Spiderman and Ultimates have their charm.

Really though I just like the new take on the four that keeps the important relationships without the baggage of the original universe.

And I like seeing Reed Richards as a brilliant, but socially inept, clueless kid. :-)
