I think so, but I don't fully recall where I read it.
I wonder what the future of Loki and Thor is going to be. If the traitor is revealed, then Thor's in the clear. Right? Or is he under supervision for the Italy riots also, and for the supposed theft of the harness?

And briefly on that note, Tony was very reluctant to get involved with the capture of thor. I wonder if that was a pang of guilt, or as we suspected, just a friendship thing. Or both.

Not exactly. The solicit just says the traitor makes a move. It doesn't say "the traitor is revealed" though it'll be interesting to see how long Millar can string it out for, just teasing us with hints while not showing anything concrete.

And I don't think it'll break the board, exactly, I just think it will lead to a very amusing and long thread, with much crowing by persons proved correct and much cursing by others. Unless, of course, Cap turns out to be the traitor (unlikely) and then there WILL be screaming and gnashing of teeth and wailing. But, fortunately, we don;t have to worry about that.

As for "breaking of boards", I am a mod on an Avengers-related board and I expect to see some real rancour generated there by House of M. Not really looking forward to that.

I believe I've read on millarworld, or somewhere that it has been confirmed that the traitor will be revealed in this issue.

Millar has said #7 will break the internet.

And then, #8 will do it again.

If the traitor is revealed in #8, then obviously the traitor's "move" breaks the internet, then his reveal does. But if the move and the reveal are in #7, then #8 scares the crap out of me already.

I wannit know.

What ARE we going to do for months? It's a good question. The tentative ship date for Ultimates #7 is July 13th and the tentative date for Ultimates #8 is September 14th. That's a whole lotta waiting.

It is? What the **** is going on? Why is Ultimates 2 bimonthly all of a sudden?

According to MM, #7, which would have been out June 22, got pushed back by Marvel executive decision to make July "Ultimate Starts" month. So no Ultimates in June.

Why there is no issue of Ultimates in August is a lot less clear. MM is doing Ultimates Annual, Ultimate FF annual and Ultimate FF that month, which puts a lot on his plate, but when someone asked him about it, he had a not-very-clear answer that made it sound like HE didn't know why, either. I'm pretty sure that Hitch is still ahead of the schedule at this point (at least that was implied.)

And don't forget that he has to ink the issues himself now, so he has to take a bit more time with the issues.

Ok. But so long as #9 is October, #10 November, and monthly till the end, ok. So long as I get an Ultimates dose each month - that's fine. Even if August is the Annual, I'm okay with that. It's still The Ultimates.

All good points, but I thought that he had already finished up until #9...

Well, I don't know what the specifics of the shipping schedule are, but I guess they just wanted an issue to land exactly on a blank week instead. So assuming that Ultimates 2 # 7 was supposed to come out late June, my guess is they've probably moved it to early July just so it can stay within Starts Month.

They could've easily just asked to move # 8's release two or three weeks earlier, but I think Hitlar don't want to lose any of the extra time they've managed to earn.

Well, #8 isn't the "start" of GTA. So it would defeat the purpose of having an issue fall directly on the Ultimate Starts thing.
