!!Comic

* CriticalResearchFailure: The comic interchangeably says that Magneto has offset the Earth's axis and its magnetic poles. The Earth's axis has nothing to do with magnetism. And even if they were, all of the results of his actions, including the massive flooding of New York City, couldn't be caused by manipulating either the magnetic polls or the Earth's axis.
* DarknessInducedAudienceApathy: The comic was so ridiculously dark that many readers either swore off the Ultimate continuity or were discouraged from getting into it. Doesn't help that an interlude features a dead pool ([[SelfDemonstrating/{{Deadpool}} Not that one]]) suggesting the whole thing is nothing to be concerned about.
* DorkAge: Almost universally agreed to be this for the Ultimate Universe, due to taking DarkerAndEdgier UpToEleven and killing off pretty much 75% of the cast.
* IdiotPlot: It actually takes 4 issues for the heroes to actually start acting like heroes. [[spoiler: Not to mention the idea that the heroes ''literally'' stood back and did nothing while they watched Magneto rip Wolverine to shreds, killing him.]]
* {{Narm}}: A lot:
** The random deaths, all gory, become sort of funny after a while.
** One of Wolverine's lines to Magneto during their fight? "I got news for you -- if you're God, then God is dead!"
** Probably the crowner is the moment where Doctor Doom demands to know how the Thing managed to enter ''through an open door''.
* NeverLiveItDown: No matter how many good things he writes, Jeph Loeb will likely never escape the reputation he gained from this comic.
* OlderThanTheyThink: Magneto's evil plan is to screw with the Earth's magnetic poles? The [[ComicBook/NewXMen last time]] he thought of this, he was under the heavy influence of drugs...which were actually the essence of a sentient bacteria...while apparently not actually being Magneto but a Chinese mutant with a star for a brain. Look, just don't have Magneto mess around with the planet's magnetic poles.
* {{Squick}}: The scene of [[spoiler:Blob eating the Wasp's corpse]].
