"I've structured this quite differently from the usual Marvel books right now. The first six issues definitely form an arc, but it's comprised of an intro, a two-parter starring The Hulk, a two-parter detailing Thor's secret origin and then a single issue that wraps everything up, leads into the final arc and also has one of the Ultimates joining this low-budget team calling themselves The Defenders.

Cant wait for Ultimate 2 to come out. This is gonna be the best. Who do you think is gonna take over. Ellis maybe?
I think Ellis is done with Marvel after the Ultimate Nightmare trilogy. Not sure how long he's on Iron Man but he much prefers creator-owned work, for obvious reasons.
