Doesn't mean anything, really, until the book is on the shelves, but at least the solicitation is out.

I just wonder how Daredevil's going to fit in there. He seems pretty set in Hell's Kitchin right now.

Maybe something happening in Electra will kick him out. I'm looking forward to this.

It doesn't say it here, but Millar has said there will also be a new logo for the book.

Well, I was going to pass this up, but now that I see all of this happening in the title, how could I? I, too, would like to know what the hell they are adding DD to the cast for... What's that about?

Also, do you think this will thin out the Ultimate X-Men cast? They are including in the list of cameos.

I thought that Electra was set in the past, setting up the Daredevil Electra characters like the first mini did.

Ultimate Elektra does occur in the past, immediately following Ultimate Daredevil & Elektra. Both series set up the characters of Daredevil and Elektra (and possibly others) as they are now.

Well, does that mean the last time we've seen DD in terms of continuity is back in Blockbuster? Like, are those two mini-series before the Blockbuster event in UXM?

Well if Ultimate Elektra is before Ultimate Elektra & Daredevil

It's not. It goes Ultimate Elektra & Daredevil, then Ultimate Elektra, then everything else. In fact, I think both series took place before much of the rest of the Ultimate universe.

Well, with the Ultimates and the X-Men teaming up within the first arc, we can expect surprises with them, huh? They aren't the friendliest teams with one another.

They mostly likely did. After all, at this point in the Elektra story, she's still not an assasin and he's still not wearing his red suit. Hopefully, those developments will be shown in Ultimate Elektra.

He could hope that these developments will be shown, seeing as that is one of the purposes of the series, but we saw what happened when they released UFF. It created a huge continuity error within the Ultimate Universe which has yet to be addressed properly by Marvel. And if Elektra and Fisk meet and interact in this series, then it is already screwed up because Fisk didn't know who she was in the pages of USM. So, unless you take Fisk as having dealt with so many faces that he forgets some of them, then continuity is messed up here as well. Marvel editors ain't too hot, are they?

Getting back on topic, I now kow why Daredevil will be showing up. The first arc is based on the Hulk and Bruce Banner's trial right, then Bruce is gonig to need a lawyer. Matt Murdock just happens to be a lawyer. Daredevil anyone?

I, like so many other fans, think Fury faked Beast's death. Beast will now be a member and maybe the X-Men will find out and make a suprise visit...
