Re: Kirkman talks about upcoming Ult X

Take a look, courtesy of IGN. Some interesting stuff, particularly that Cable might be a future version of someone we already know in the MU..... plus a change in lineup, a 'major' death, and.... Ultimate Age of Apocalypse?!?
Interesting...what if Cable ended up killing Cyclops (this being the major death he speaks of)? That'd kind of be an ironic twist, since Cable and Cyke are father and son in the 616 universe...the Ultimate versions would just be perpetrator and victim in an extremely ironic way.
Issue #75 also includes a backup story written by Sean McKeever with art by Mark Brooks. We'll finally get a look at what goes on in Emma Frost's Academy of Tomorrow. And yes, we'll see some Ultimate Doug Ramsey. You've just been dying for some Cypher, haven't you?
I'm looking forward to this. I'm liking the back-up stories they've been doing recently in the Ultimate titles (Ultimate Vision and the Ultimate X-Men Annual #2 back-up). While they haven't been good stories so far, they can be, and also help expand the Ultimate universe, but not too drastically. The self-contained, short stories are also cool, in my opinion.
All the better because Brooks is drawing it.
I expect this short story will focus on Warren some, and I'm excited to hear about Doug Ramsey/Cypher being Ultimized.
