Nah. Why clone Kitty too? That's involving her tooooo much. I hope it's just a female clone of Peter.
I mean not so much a clone in the sense we think of but more as in they took Peter bits, fertilized Kitty bits, and bam. Spider-Woman. Make sense with Bendis and the science thing, because it'd be similar to the "lesbian baby" idea that geneticists are tinkering with. Create what's essentially female "sperm" from one woman's genetic material, stick it into another woman's egg, and you have a child that's the biological product of both women. While Peter isn't female, it'd be easier to get random DNA than actual sperm, and they could synthesize something to stick into a host egg and create a new child from.

The Clone Saga sounds fantastic and DAREDEVIL & PUNISHER!

Ultimate X-men
Woo Dazzler and Nightcrawler.

Ultimates
More Cap and Falcon.

Ultimate Fantastic Four.
Sounds good enough.

How can Ultimates Annual come out BEFORE Ultimates V2 wraps up? Didn't Huston say in the interview that we'd be seeing where some of the characters ended up after the last issue?

for some reason, im REALLY liking that USM cover, don't know what it is, but its nice. and did anyone else notice its feet?

edit: and the USM A#2, if you look at it with a quick glance (or take your glasses off) DD looks like an angry little red Paraná, and the whiteness of the teeth make it look like little fangs.

FINALLY it looks like we're in store for some Ultimate goodness. I'm cautiously optimistic about this Clone Saga - at least they are making it sound good in the hype.

I forsee a future in about a year and a half when all of this ends up sucking and Proj revives this thread, quoting me from above.

Thanks for posting, Ice.

Wow, looks like a pretty exciting month...

The first thing that really looks good to me is USM. This may be the hype, but I'm really looking forward to the actual story. From what I've heard so far from Bendis, this should be one of those memorable arcs. Can't wait to see the answers to all of these questions...

Next, you may think I'm crazy... BUT the Fantastic Four looks really awesome. I can't wait for the Mole Man and whatever else Carey has planned... If these solicitations for the Annual and the first issue for his run is any indication, he's going to rock!

Ultimates Annual - I've seen this all before and I'm not sure who the villain is - but I'm really excited about it.

Ultimate X-Men - Doesn't looking inspiring or interesting in the least bit. I really hope Magician gets caught in one of those optic blasts...

I'm confused about the Ultimates Annual. Is it going to reveal the ending? Or is it going to be vaguely hinted at? We'll see.

EDIT: Arnim Zola! :rockon:

#1 reason not to join UC
Ultimates Annual #2 - I'm liking anything with Ultimate Captain America in it. And if he's teamed up with anyone Marh-vell, Falcon, whoever it always seems to add to the fun. I'm looking forward to this. And this Zola guy looks like he needs the Ultimate Treatment... Arnim Zola

Ultimate Fantastic Four Annual #2 - Carey's cosmic story doesn't have me interested in the least bit. The return of Mole Man definitely does and I'm still waiting for everything the Fantastic Four has encountered to tie in with Moley and his dealings in the underground dwellings that relate to Atlantis.

Ultimate Fantastic Four #33 - Carey's very hit or very miss. I'm not pumped for this but maybe he'll surprise us... maybe... :?

Ultimate Spider-Man #98 and 99 - A lot of mystery and :shock: moments. I like the cover but like E said, cautiously optimistic. Hopefully Bendis has been holding back for this arc.

Ultimate Spider-Man Annual #2 - Daredevil :twisted: / Punisher. Street Level crime is what Bendis does best. More DeWolff too. And Foggy. :D A side story not dealing with the clone saga craziness should be a nice break.

Ultimate X-Men #73
- Still my favorite monthly Ultimate Title. Magician will pass. I think it was at least be a safe bet that it will be enjoyable. Still waiting to see how Jean's handled.

Ultimate X-Men Annual #2 - Cool for Nightcrawler but what about Angel? And I hope Apocalypse begins to surface soon.... You know, just saying... :twisted:


Overall good Ultimate Month.

Why are they soliciting ultimates annual #2 before they solicit ultimates 2 #13? Where is the cover for Ultimates 2 #13 for the ending they just wouldn't give away the ending like that would they?

We all know how it's going to end. Good triumphs, evil gets it's *** kicked, Hank looks like a dick.

Assuming that you haven't burned all your comics and closed down the site by then.
