Re: Ultimate Marvel April 2006 Solicitations

Gorgeous Peterson cover for UEX, although the issue itself sounds like a repeat of the last solicit.

UFF.... meh. I've got no idea where that stuff with Ben comes from, I thought this arc was supposed to focus on Johnny? On a similar note, the last issue of Marvel Zombies will apparently lead into the first issue of Frightful over in UFF.

Deadpool actually looks very cool, now I only hope Bendies nails the character.

UWvH cover looks a bit blah.

Ben Oliver on UXM!!! I loved this guy's stuff since his Authority Human on the Inside. Story sounds like it's heating up too.

Ultimates!! What a cover, so simple, yet still powerful. Is Thor really coming back!?! I don't know, but I can't wait to find out.

Moondragons? I like it. Another cult. The rest sound cool.

Now it's Reavers again? Cmon!! Actually that's a good thing. Deadpool's identity revealed? I don't like the sound of that? It better be Wade. But look it's Ultimate Deadpool :rockon: :rockon: :rockon:

More Cyclops/Wolverine tension!? YES!! I was hopeing these two would square off again. Kitty disappears so do Magicians? Kitty finds out magic isn't real and is afraid to tell Iceman because he might cry?

Re: Ultimate Marvel April 2006 Solicitations

Don't for get "Marvel Zombies." Even if it dose not have an Ultimate title. It dose tie into it. first it starts after "Crossover". And this Issue ties into the upcoming Ultimate Fantastic Four's Story "Frightful"

MARVEL ZOMBIES #5 (of 5)
Written by ROBERT KIRKMAN
Penciled by SEAN PHILLIPS
Cover by ARTHUR SUYDAM
Is it wedding bells—or an Undead extravaganza!?! The world-devouring Galactus makes his way to Earth to discover the dominant life form is—Marvel Zombies! Can the zombies defend their world from the Big G or will they meet their end in a planet-wide conflagration? The answer will shock you in this conclusion that ties into Ultimate Fantastic Four: “Frightful,” beginning next month!

So the mini. tie back into the Ultimate Fantastic Four. So maybe the Zombie FF escape, and we'll get that big fight between The UFF & the Zombie FF after all!

Re: Ultimate Solicitations for April, 2006.

The Ultimate Extinction cover kinda pisses me off.

The UXM cover, as I said, gets me pumped because I want to see more Wolverine Vs. Cyclops. But what's Logan have to do with the Phoenix? Nothing? Thought so.

The UFF cover... just as "cool" as the last one.

The Ultimates cover... nice concept but nothing special.

Ultimate Hulk Vs. Wolverine... Are those Wolverine's claws going through Hulk? Pretty badass.

USM....:rockon:

Re: Ultimate Solicitations for April, 2006.

Ultimate Extinction: Galactus still hasn't shown up? Plain cover. Oh, and look E: 4 (of 5). :D

Ultimate Fantastic Four: Sweet cover. Did they switch this around with the Johnny arc?

Ultimate Spider-Man: Same old Deadpool. Confused about Marauders/Reavers.

Ultimate Wolverine vs. Hulk: Cool cover. They replaced solicit information with hype.

Ultimate X-Men: Yes! No Steve Dillion! :D

Ultimates 2: Hell yes.

Marvel Zombies: Interesting to see this ties into Frightful, so this probably confirms the Frightful Four are zombies.
