Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from JoeSaotome
Review:
I was a big fan of the Ultraverse and collected nearly all the titles. Malibu Comics had some great characters. Malibu was the fore-runner in digital coloring process to press on a large but quick scale. Marvel wanted that process and did a hostile take-over of the company. Once in charge they deliberately ran the Ultraverse into the ground with crappy story lines and bad art. During the 90s comic glut Malibu had managed to supersede Marvel in sales. Marvel got their coloring process and killed their competition at the same time.

Yeah, it's always been about what makes them the most money. Characterization and plot falls in the distance. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from CPTSkip
Review:
The last couple of sentences made me very glad I wasn't drinking when I read them. Even so, I nearly choked on my own spit trying not to laugh insanely. I like your Faith/Dawn partnership, sexual or otherwise. Sort of a brawn and brain thing, but they seem to go together as demon fighter pros. I just hope you can update just a wee bit faster as I really want to know what the frak is going on.
Comments from author:
The first time my muse told me to team those two together, I went "Huh?"

But they *do* seem to match up well, don't they? ;-)

And the updates are entirely at my muse's whims. ;-(

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from trongod
Review:
Totally unfamiliar with Mr. Hawke, but I LIKES DIS!!!

Wondering just how long Faith and Little D have been... partners... and just whose idea /that/ was...
Comments from author:
Glad you enjoyed the chapter. ;-)

And as far as I know, Faith was just yanking Dawn's chain, so to speak. (Although, it's possible that maybe my muse isn't telling me something interesting, yet.)

Review of chapter "Chapter Two" from (Recent Donor)redjacobson
Review:
Only Faith could possibly pull off a line like that! Although I'm curious to see what Hardcase's reaction would be, never having read the comics, but if I remember correctly, isn't he that universes version of Superman?

Comments from author:
Yes, that line was simply perfect for Faith. ;-)

And Hardcase is more akin to Hercules or Ben Grimm, in that he's superstrong and relatively invulnerable to harm, but he can't fly and doesn't have heat vision or any energy-emission powers.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from EnchanterTim
Review:
heh, nice to see an Ultraverse crossover. I used to collect a bunch of those series (Hardcase, Freex, The Strangers, The Solution, Ultraforce, ect)
Comments from author:
Yeah, I did the same thing for a while, until it seemed like the writers lost interest in the characters and were just cranking out mediocre stories for the money. ;- (

in any event, I was just working on the next chapter of this one the other day, so it might not be too long until I can finish and post it. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from eriktheviking
Review:
The story actually threw me considering the title was a line from the movie "The Rock." Well written as ever.
Comments from author:
I had to throw in a hint about who the visitor was, and that is what resulted. ;-)

Glad you enjoyed it.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Gideon
Review:
Faith on first contact? That could be very good, or very bad :)
Comments from author:
I guess that all depends on what kind of 'contact' you're thinking about, doesn't it? ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Valandar
Review:
So, Hardcase made his way there, eh? I'm not familiar with too much of the rest of the Ultraverse at that point in time, is Prime still running around or did he end up getting taken out?
Comments from author:
Yeah, that's who it is.

And Prime is still around, somewhere. I don't plan on having him show up in the story, though.

Review:
Um, okay? Never having read the Ultra-Verse, in fact, I quit reading Marvel entirely around the SpiderClone Fiasco time, I have no idea what happened in this story.

Comments from author:
The visitor is a guy named Tom Hawke, aka Hardcase.

You can learn more about him here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hardcase.
