What Price Power?

The variant cover of Ultimate New Ultimates #1 looked like a dream come true. The version of the Defenders from Ultimates 2 finally got the superpowers they desired.

But in exchange for superhuman abilities, these Defenders turned away from their heroic aspirations—buying into an evil plot to steal Thor's hammer, Mjolnir. The five-issue limited series ended with these criminal Defenders facing capture by Captain America, Iron Man, Hawkeye, and Thor.

Roll Call: (back) Black Knight, Nighthawk, Son of Satan, (front) Power Man, Valkyrie, and Hellcat (who now resembled a spotted version of Tigra).
Jeph Loeb and Frank Cho were the writer and penciler on the Ultimate New Ultimates series.
