greatrhodeybutt:


Announced during the Marvel Ultimate Panel in San Diego, a new series written by Brian Michael Bendis and illustrated by Mark Bagley was announced titled “Cataclysm: The Ultimates Last Stand” in which Galactus, after having apparently spent four issues of “Hunger” just walking through space, arrives at the Ultimate Earth and eats it — therefore ostensibly ending the Ultimate Marvel U.
It’s not the first time Marvel has nearly killed the Ultimate Marvel U. It probably won’t be the last time, either. With Bendis and Bagley re-uniting for it, though, after their monumental and historical run on “Ultimate Spider-Man,” you can tell that Marvel is trying to put a sense of import behind this.
Just, y’know, expect a) another relaunch and/or b) for Miles to end up in the 616 and as a member of the Mighty Avengers. Because if we were right about the first part, chances are we’re going to be right about the second. Not to be braggy or snooty, but, well, you know.

hrmmmmmmmmmmm
i have a lot of questions.  and a few worries. and a few more questions

↳ the ultimates

  • first appeared in The Ultimates #1 (2002)
  • created by Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch
  • based on The Avengers by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby

the team

The Ultimates were established as an elite meta-human task force by General Nick Fury of SHIELD, in order to combat the rising threat of supervillain attacks against the United States.

The team is Earth-1610’s answer to the Avengers. Whereas the Avengers are a privately funded team, the Ultimates have almost always been tied to a government agency. Due to their political nature, the Ultimates have been the focus of the public eye throughout their history, and this often causes several PR disasters as well as international incidents.

history

The Ultimates were formed to protect not only the United States but the world, and over their history they have battled alien invasions, terrorists, supervillains, and gods.

Currently the team is recovering from an attack that left the United States government crippled and America on the verge of civil war. Several states have seceded, and Captain America has assumed the duty of President in order to reunite the nation. Monica Chang, the second Black Widow, is currently heading SHIELD and co-leading the Ultimates.

current roster 

Captain America, Tony Stark (Iron Patriot), Monica Chang (Black Widow II), Sam Wilson (Falcon), Clint Barton (Hawkeye), Miles Morales (Spider-Man), Jessica Drew (Spider-Woman), Thor

DO NOT READ ULTIMATES 3 OR ULTIMATUM

DO NOT READ ULTIMATES 3 OR ULTIMATUM

Seriously, DO NOT READ ULTIMATUM

The initial series by Mark Millar and Bryan Hitch is enjoyable, but for the best books in the series, read Jonathan Hickman’s Ultimate Comics: The Ultimates. Hickman brought an intellectual level to the universe that in my opinion hadn’t been seen previously. The volume 1 art is by Esad Ribic, which is another huge point in its favor.

Really anything pre-Ultimatum besides Ultimates 1 and 2 is not worth reading. Ultimate Avengers, New Ultimates, and Avengers vs New Ultimates are all good reads and the art is fantastic for the most part. The latest Ultimates issues have been written by Sam Humphries, and they are so much fun. Humphries has brought the somewhat goofy tone of the earlier books back, but overall the series is kind of insane and cheesy and IT’S AMAZING. Y’all should read it, it’s wonderful.

new reader friendly: 1/5

I really recommend avoiding the Ultimate universe until you are at least somewhat aware of 616. A lot of people will recommend you read the Ultimates 1 and 2 if you are a movie fan trying to get into comics, but this is really not good advice anymore, especially with Kelly Sue DeConnick’s Avengers Assemble ongoing. The Ultimates has such a different tone than the movies, even though the structure of the cinematic universe was based on 1610.

Until you have a better grasp on entire Marvel universe I’d recommend staying away from Ultimates.
