Can anyone lend me some info about time travel in the Ultimate u? What are time spiders, for one thing?
THey featured in the president thor arc of fantastic four. Mark Miller put 'em in there and no one was too fussed. But we all noted how reed richards couldn't come into contact with himself, or the world will collapse....
....then cable came from the future and fought wolverine....I think there's a discussion if you look at the thread for that issue of Ult x-men
I imagine it's significantly more expensive than the millions of dollars that Nick Fury is purported to burn through when he goes on stealth mode.Time Travel is also really expensive, with the Fantastic Four able to justify it now and then, like with the Chrono-Bandits, or when they did it with the intention of undoing everything (pres. Thor).
Gosh, you're right.Time travel in the UU...is impossible.
One of the fundamental rules of time travel is that you always go back to same space you were in when you made the timejump. So, if you went back in time a week, you would be in deep space thanks to Earth's orbit.
Normally, this problem can be avoided by combinding time travel technolegy with teleportation technology...but...
Not only is teleportation technolegy in the UU on indefinate haitus due to the screw-up that resulted in the UFF...but there was a time travel mission to prevent it from ever succeeding.
