There should be an Ultimate Valentine Special so that we can have an excuse to show Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver cuddling between the sheets.

Ultimate Extinction - Awful cover.

Ultimate Fantastic Four - Awful premise...and worse cover...

Ultimate Spider-Man - Vulture looks badass... looking forward to it. Not so fond of the corporation wars though.

Ultimate Wolverine Vs. Hulk - Eh, still nothing new. Covers don't impress either

Ultimate X-Men -
Ultimate SABERTOOTH BABY!!! :rockon:

Awesome month. I can't wait for Ultimate Extinction and Ultimate Spider-Man. The title I want the most, though, is Ultimate X-Men. This looks like it won't lose it's spark after Vaughan leaves. Awesome.

Still not thrilled about UFF, though.

Wha?.... huh? I thought the big thing about ultimate silver surfer was the fact that USS might not be a "he"......

Actually, it was Ellis who did the tease.

If I'm not mistaken, Ellis teasing about Silver Surfer's gender happened BEFORE they announced Ultimate Vision the Robobabe.

Can-Ad-Ah dont ask me where it is i don't know.
They had better not be screwing with about vulture being a badass it sounds like they are speaking too highly of them. im sick of them raping great characters e.x. shocker. As for extinction it looks good cover dosnt suck so bad wolvirene looks like a retard. UFF had better explain how everyone knew about the FF before they were even made. Thats about all i have to say im pissed they are making us wait an extra month for UIM #5 i want that over and done

There were a load of rumors that the Silver Surfer may be a girl/extremely different than his 616 counterpart. As we get closer to seeing him showing up, it doesn't look like there's going to be much of a change. I'd like to see a slight change, but nothing drastic. I agree with whoever said the board should be swapped for waves of cosmis rays or something.

ULTIMATE EXTINCTION #2 (of 5)

So the chick IS Moondragon? Ah well, guess I was wrong. I'm actually glad SS is a male, it makes more sense. The "Psychic Onslaught" sounds awesome, though. Cover is crappy, though (And I usually love Peterson's artwork).

ULTIMATE FANTASTIC FOUR #27

OH THANK GOD! We going to get a continuity glitch explanation! And I'm all for the time travel bit, as long as it STAYS within the UFF. Cover sucks, too.

ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN #90

Is it me, or does Vultue look like a green Ultimate Beetle? Still, I'm glad they're doing Vulture and making him a significant threat. It better be Adrian Toomes, too, otherwise his appearance in the game will have been a waste. Love the cover.

ULTIMATE WOLVERINE VS. HULK #2 (of 6)

Story sounds great. Cover is good, but not great.

ULTIMATE X-MEN #67

The return of Sabertooth!? It's too good to be true. . .I love Kirkman. Seriously, him and Vaughan will have given this title new life. Cover looks great.

. . .AND WHERE THE *** IS THE ULTIMATES!? What happened to the whole "10, 11 and 12 need to come out quick or the story will be ruined!"?! Now i know why Ultimates 3 comes out in october. . .because they're expecting Ultimate 2 #12 in September.

I'm glad SS is a male. Bald females piss me off for some reason. Thats why im not as excited about Ultimate Vision. Vision was one of my fav 616 characters, but the gender change just put me off.

I dont know why, i just cant stand bald female characters :S

That's why we have Ultimate Vision II. So he can be the Vision we all know and love.
