Fantastic Four # 15 (2004).
Launched in 2000 as a hard reboot of the traditional Marvel characters (in geek-speak referred to as the "Marvel 616 Universe"), the line-up of titles had changed periodically, but the continuity (for the most part) has been consistent. My entre into the Ultimate Universe was the 2004 publication of Ultimate Fantastic Four #1, written by Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Millar with art by Adam Kubert. As a longtime collector of the original Fantastic Four (through numerous soft reboots past and present) I looked forward to being able to jump on with a legit first issue, and to follow my childhood favorites as updated, modern characters.
