Is Marvel more interested in the 616 universe rather than the Ultimate Universe nowadays?
of course they're more interested in the 616 who isn't?Is Marvel more interested in the 616 universe rather than the Ultimate Universe nowadays? It seems like the UU books aren't big sellers nowadays.
Absolutely, and rightfully so. The books suck. They used to be showcases for some of the top talents, and that's just not the case anymore.
No offense to them, but Robert Kirkman and Mike Carey are not Mark Millar and Warren Ellis.
that was just a rediculous fan rumour, it was never going to happen, even Joe Q isn't that stupid and that's saying something.Well, for awhile, the UU was so good that there was talk of it actually taking the place of 616 Marvel. Now? There's been a lot of talk of just ending it.

But I suppose that that was my point; there was a time when I actually thought this wouldn't be a bad idea...but now I don't think even the dumbest of fans would advocate replacing 616 with the UU now.
it would be a horrible business decision no matter what time it would take place, plus alot of people would just call it a lame attempt to pull off a Marvel Crisis.
seriously going from something like 80 titles in the 616 to 4 in the UU, the losses would be huge (even though it wouldn't matter because marvel makes most of it's money through the movies and other licensing)
:lol: :lol: :lol:You guys are crazy! They're sending their biggest and most popular writer, Jeph Loeb, to come in and revitalize this universe! And judging by his first Ultimate work, Ultimate Power 7, I think that's just awesome!
