    Ultimate Comics: Ultimates by Sam Humphries (spoilers)

    I don't mind the status quo right now in the Ultimate Universe. Yes it feels like another world now, but it seems that they have moved from making a Marvel universe similar to our world, but to a universe that is generally more realistic given its circumstances. I think this is a first time that...

    Ultimate Marvel Timeline / Chronology (v 5.0)

    Fury could easily be back in charge after that arc, which is my point. I doubt Flumm will stay as Director for long. It's clear that Spider-Men takes place after Divided We Fall / United We Stand since it refers Prowler's death. There is no significant break that will allow Spider-Men to take...

    Ultimate Marvel Timeline / Chronology (v 5.0)

    It's already confirmed in Ultimates vs. Avengers that all the events of UIM are a TV show that has a very liberal take on Tony Stark's life hence the grey. It's obviously a retcon, but what can you do? Anyway all of the references to it are very vague. Also looks like Spider-Men will take...

    Ultimate Marvel Timeline / Chronology (v 5.0)

    The most significant part of that horrible series is that Fury is trapped in the Squadron Supreme universe paving way to Carol Danvers taking over his role. While Kitty and Spidey seems to be a couple here, it is not that explicitly shown that they are.

    Ultimate Comics Spider-Man/Miles Morales Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Yeah, another thing is that it's actually still unclear how we should really feel about that. Uncle Aaron while at first seemed sympathetic, is shown to be an awful person when he kills the Tinkerer, blackmails in his own nephew and enjoys his life of crime with sinister ambitions to be on top...

    Ultimate Marvel Timeline / Chronology (v 5.0)

    Definitely takes place after the last USM arc based on Miles' reaction to seeing the Prowler illusion. What's unsure is when both series takes place in the overall chronological sequence with comparison to UXM and Ultimates which depicts the entire world pretty much in the toilet. Another thing...

    Ultimate Marvel Timeline / Chronology (v 5.0)

    Are you sure Spider-Men takes place after the last Ultimates arc? Nick Fury and the Ultimates are still in their status quo sans Captain America. SHIELD is most likely still under Flumm's control as Fury is MIA after the last arc and they captured Black Widow, Hawkeye and Falcon. This is...

    Ultimate Marvel Timeline / Chronology (v 5.0)

    Well to be fair, Ellis' term is 'biological computronium' or something like that is rather vague. And it wasn't a big plot point. Tony saves the day by using the nanomachines in his body, which is actually long acknowledged since Ultimates 2 I believe. Maybe that living tumor "Anthony" might be...

    Ultimate Comics X-Men (Spoilers)

    Yeah, UXM is finally good. Issues one to twelves was just giant build-ups to nothing and a million subplots. Now we actually have an actual X-Men team to root for.

    Ultimate Comics: Ultimates by Jonathan Hickman (spoilers)

    To be fair, it's not really that bad. Crazy stuff about Stark's brain would help explain his extreme intelligence the same way with Reed. It's also just as absurd as Reed's Big Bang cannon to scare off Gah Lak Tus and that was written by Warren Ellis. I have a feeling they kind of wrote...

    Ultimate Comics: Ultimates by Jonathan Hickman (spoilers)

    Zorn attacked the Children fleet that was sent to Tian after the Oracle's attempt to communicate with them. It was the nukes that damaged The City. Oh yeah, and the Children blew up Washington. Wow.

    Ultimate Comics Spider-Man/Miles Morales Discussion (SPOILERS)

    Re: Ultimate Comics Spider-Man Discussion (SPOILERS) I like that Uncle Aaron is the anti-Uncle Ben. Miles wants to do the right thing all the time and it's his own uncle who is trying to pull him away from it.

    Ultimate First Appearance Thread 5.0

    Re: First Appearance 5.0 When a character adapts an identity that is like an Ultimate version of another character does it count? Apparently, Stryker is Ultimate Bastion.

    Death of Ultimate Spider-Man (Feb. 2011)

    The Ultimate universe has become Marvel's way to use stories they could not implement in the regular titles. I'm fine with that, and as long as good writing prevails as Ultimate stories have dramatically improved post-Ultimatum, it can go on forever. Marvel has figured out that they can no...

    Ultimate characters that have been "forgotten"

    Colossus, Rogue and Storm haven't shown themselves post-Ultimatum. Although it's pretty much a given we'll see them in the new UXM series. Beetle, Venom, Mary Storm, Mole Man, Alicia Masters and Kong.
