You are all just obstacles on my path to Nirvana.
so I guess since Tony and Natasha are still getting married in Ultimates 2 #9, they probably aren't the traitor(s). Seems kind of wierd they'd be getting married at a time like this though. Crazy genius billionaires and their money-grubbing wives are strange.

Namor looks like a cross between a Vulcan and an Indian from "Last of the Mohicans". Dude has great quads though, must do a lot of squats down in his tomb. No big surprise that the 616 Namor/Sue relationship is going to be played up in this one.

The cover to USM #85 isn't anything special. More evidence though that the mystery girlfriend is indeed Black Cat. Anyone want to take wagers on who lives, who dies, and who stabs Spidey in the back? Pretty obvious the hand and tentacle on USM #86 cover is Ultimate Omega Red.

Ultimate X-Men looks ok, not much info we didn't already know in terms of the summary, and the cover is just ok.

And it looks like we can expect both the USM #1/2 and UXM #1/2 issues in the Marvel Milestones issue, which is cool. Not sure I care about Microman and Mantor story though. It'd be pointless for me to get this anyway since I already have the #1/2 issues.

Anyway, looking forward to November.

Ultimates 2: To be honest. . .I have no idea where Ultimates is going to go after the Traitor reveal. I guess Loki's gonna be the main villain (IF he's even real). I'm also kinda hoping for that Asian Ultimates team to fight the US Ultimates. The wedding should be. . .intresting. I wonder if it'll last? Wonder what the cover looks like. . .

Ultimate Spidey #85: I'm pretty damn sure Black Cat is Spidey's new g/f at this point. I guess we'll find out this Wednesday. As far as who dies and who betrays who. . .I'll be PISSED if Bendis kills off Iron Fist or Shang-Chi. They ROCK! Kill off Hammerhead. . .again. Cover is more of the same.

Ultimate Spidey #86: OMEGA RED! WOOOOO! And finally getting into the Roxxon Corp stuff. Wonder where that's gonna go. And whaddya know. . .It ties into the video game! I guess it's DEFINETLY canon now. Not that I mind, the game is gonna be FREAKIN' AWESOME! Although the cover looks like Spidey vs Ultimate Hellboy. . .

Ultimate Fantastic Four #25: Ultimate Namor is SUCH an improvement over 616 Namor. This is my most anticapted arc for FF now. Can't WAIT to see this. I'm even excited about Ultimate Invasion now!

Ultimate X-men #65: To be honest, I'm still unsure how this entire story is gonna play out. We've only seen the first issue of this arc. Lots of mutants is good, but. . .where is it all going? Guess we'll see!

"IF" he's even real? Did you not read Ultimates 2 #5? :sure:

There's no solid proof.

I'll probably just download the half issues.

Why?

Damn time limit...
If my scanner was hooked up, I'd show you. But sadly, my dad's been 'busy' to deal with that.


Anyways, as it's been said, from just looking at the solit, it seems that Tony and Natasha will still be wed no matter what. But! What if one of them is the traitor, say Tony, and Natasha still wants to marry him? Or vice versa. Just a thought.

Ultimate FF looks great, sounds great, cant wait to see it read great. Cover looks sweet, too. On another board, someone said "Johnny Leguizamo and Jessica Alba hooked up", lol. It does look like them a bit, too.

USM sounds cool, but I read that in TPB. Until #100, that is.

UXM sounds just so crazy. I bet Magneto still escapes, since we were told he does, and even though this is the last part of the arc, he's still in the Triskelion. Still, can't wait to check out the fight!

An explaination would suffice.

Well, as Thor is in his cell, all burnt up, "Gunnar" pops in. The same Gunnar that everyone else saw explain to them that "Thor's crazy". Gunnar starts to tell Thor the truth, but he wasnt the one that revealed the truth about banner. It was because there's "a wolf in the fold". Thor starts yelling at him, then suddenly, Gunnar is know a snake on Thor's shoulders. Of course, through all this, Thor called Gunnar Loki, which is who Gunnar really is. Thor yelled for security, but no one saw anyone else besides Thor in the cell.

That could still be counted as not solid proof. Kinda like the deal with Sinister and Apocalypse.

Not really. Different situation because we do have proof.

Anyways, back to the Ultimate solits.

Except for the fact that the rest of the Ultimates saw him as well while being informed about Thor's origin (which might be a lie) by Gunnar/Loki. So that would make the whole team a bunch of loons.

Which would be cool. :D

The only way I could see it being tony would be if the "action" comment is them running away together.

Ice have you seen issue #8 or something?

All sounds pretty interesting, although I'm a bit dubious about Bendis stealing so many X Men characters, what with Omega Red and Deadpool and the Reavers later on..... ah well.

By the way, where are you guys seeing the covers?

Yeah, I'm searching far and wide for these cover images... Where are they? :scared:

The solicitations sound exciting enough, too. Ultimates should prove interesting, UFF is gold as usual, and UXM is going to be the best! Spider-Man, though the Gang War is ending, I am apprehensive about this Omega Red bit. We'll see where it goes but I don't like the fact that Bendis is taking these characters and putting them in USM.
