Jeph Loeb is the Jeph Loeb of comic book writers. He wrote comics for many years before somehow finagling his way into television. And he wasn't always awful.

And Millar isn't always as bad as people make out. He tends to hover somewhere between juvenile and repugnant, but he does big screen action really well. For all their faults, Ultimates 1 and 2 were damn fun reads.

The same can't be said for Loeb's Ultimates 3. How that thing even made it to print in the shape it was in baffles me. I was so excited to see some Joe Mad art again, and I dropped it after the 2nd issue. He's also responsible for all the cannibalism nonsense that came afterwards. Say what you will about Millar writing Wanda and Pietro as incesties - at least he never outright showed it.
