We'll see. Let's not jump the gun so quickly. But if it is that, I can't wait to see why.

My prediction if it is that: She finds out that Magneto is her father, and goes crazy to get him back, after not having her "real" father all her life.

I dont think she's gonna be Magneto's daugther in this universe, and what would happend if Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch find out? I dont want her to be Magneto's daugther, maybe she cant control her powers that well just yet.

I highly doubt Lorna will be Magneto's daughter in UU, this is a recent development in 616 and will soon (probably) be retconned.

I also think Magneto uses Lorna...somehow......don't...know..how...though. Hmmm

No artist? :?

They haven't even signed up an artist for this mini yet? Wow, if thats true, we won't see an Ultimate Extinction issue until probably closer to the end of the year, September at the earliest. I don't mean to jump the gun but realistically speaking, especially because the only Ultimate ongoing which tends to ship on time is USM, the others every few months tend to be a few weeks late--I realize sometimes the release date is pushed back for whatever reason by the publisher or whatnot with no fault of the artist, but if no artist is even signed yet to draw this book (and its mid-April already), and with the factor that they probably won't start releasing the mini until at least almost three issues are in the can (at least if they're smart)...like I said, not until September (I know that was a bit of an extreme run-on sentence, but I'm too lazy to care...least I'm honest). I could be wrong, I hope I'm wrong (this is my most anticipated Ultimate event of the year, so I'm definitly looking forward to this first issue), but Marvel's rarely-on-time publishing history speaks for itself.

As to the other titles, I'm really pumped for July in terms of Ultimate comics. Been looking forward to the Warriors arc coming up in USM, as well as the new Magneto arc in UXM. And this info about Lorna Dane, Havok, and Emma all show up is sounding very interesting, especially considering the return of Magneto. UFF I'm also eagerly awaiting, as I'm hoping it might help make sense of the somewhat screwed-up continuity as this arc has been rumored to do.
Ultimates 2 #7...I'm reserving judgement. I don't think we're going to find out who the traitor among the Ultimates is in this issue, nor any of the next several issues. I'm hoping we get to see more of Thor and Loki's interaction. I knew the Loki plot wasn't going to be resolved in #5, so it looks like Loki may play the role of major villain throughout the series. I could be wrong, but with #6 being an Ultimate Defenders oriented issue, I doubt that plot is going to even come close to being resolved. And #7's preview doesn't seem to hint at Loki playing a big role in that issue either. I'm hoping we see Loki and another evil super-whatever team up--for instance Loki manages to even manipulate Ultron (and we know Pym's been working on him...I bet he makes some mention of the robot in #6) into destroying the Ultimates...or even worse, attack a major population center and have it leaked to the press that Ultron is an AI robot constructed under SHIELD supervision by Hank Pym (if this is the case I expect Pym to kill himself by the end of this arc...not to be morbid, but seriously, the guy's already a wreck). This coupled with the Hulk fiasco would pretty much kill the Ultimates PR wise. Maybe Millar is going out with a bang...an Ultimates Disassembled, if you will. Its possible they might get away scott-free like they did with the Hulk in the first arc (course, the public found out eventually, so...). It seems like the team is always going through roster changes (started with Captain America, Iron Man, Giant-Man, Wasp, and eventually Thor...the Hulk was never really a part of the team), with first people joining (Quicksilver and Scarlett Witch), and then the black ops team joining the public (Hawkeye and Black Widow). Then we had former members get fired/kicked off/imprisoned by the Ultimates (Hulk and Giant-Man)...and now, we have a whole United Nations offering of flag covered spandex wearing Europeans. Who can keep track anymore? Seriously though, I expect Millar to kill off at least one pretty major member of the team, possibly Thor later, or even Hawkeye or Black Widow (especially if she turns out to be the traitor).

Either way, July looks like a good month.
