Ultimate Comics Avengers #6
Say what you will about Mark Millar, but this was one of the better books out of the Ultimatum fiasco. I came this far, so I have to see how this all wraps up with Father Cap vs. Son Red Skull. This incarnation of Red Skull is pretty brutal, and Millar seems to be juxtaposing how far a moral man like Cap will go against a nihilistic and amoral man like Skull. If Cap kills Red Skull, you have a pretty good idea of how a Millar Batman/Joker finale would end up.
Peter David has long been one of the better writers around, and his X-Factor has been consistently one of the better X titles. While the other books recycle the race war story line (which is stupid, since humans would be worried about any metahuman, regardless if they were born with the power or had a freak accident), David was doing his own thing and it was very entertaining. Well, they have sucked him into the latest X-event, but it’s worth taking a look at to see how David puts his own unique signature on it.
