I’ve written before about my love for Ultimate Spider-Man and, honestly, that has been my only link to the Ultimate universe. With Cataclysm wrapping up, we are about to see things shaken up quite a bit and it is looking very interesting.
Miles Morales is still Spider-Man and is getting a relaunched title called Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man with Bendis and Marquez still attached.
Then we have a new Ultimates team made up of the young heroes of the Ultimate Universe. Spider-Man, Black Widow, Kitty Pryde, Bombshell and Cloak & Dagger make up the All-New Ultimates. Not much else is provided, but they will be battling in Hell’s Kitchen.
Then we get Sue Storm, Tony Stark, Machine Man and Sam Wilson making up the Ultimate FF. Marvel is also hinting that we might see the appearance of a classic Fantastic Four villain, Doctor Doom.
ULTIMATE MARVEL NOW!
In the Wake of “Cataclysm” – New Teams are Born!
New York. NY— January 10, 2014— The most popular characters! The most acclaimed creators! The most ambitious stories! This is the energized UltimateMarvel NOW!.
This April, Marvel’s Ultimate universe undergoes a massive overhaul in an exciting and new direction as the industry’s top creators – Brian Michael Bendis, Michel Fiffe and Joshua Hal Fialkov take everyone’s favorite Ultimate universe characters – Spider-Man, Iron Man, Kitty Pryde, Sue Storm, Black Widow (formally Spider-Woman), Cloak & Dagger and more in an all-new and exciting direction after the devastating events of Cataclysm.
“The Ultimate Universe is relatively young, which yields more opportunities for real change, real dangers, and dramatic avenues left unexplored in superhero comics,” says ALL-NEW ULTIMATES writer Michel Fiffe.
It all starts in April with ALL-NEW ULTIMATES, from the creative team of Michel Fiffe (Copra) and Amilcar Pinna (X-Men: First Class). Spider-Man, Black Widow (formally Spider-Woman), Kitty Pryde, Bombshell, Cloak & Dagger officially unite to tackle the vicious, rampant crime wave overtaking Hell’s Kitchen! But can this new team of Ultimates stand up to the murderous gang known only as the Serpent Skulls?
UltimateMarvel NOW! continues through the spring of 2014 with the launch of ULTIMATE FF by Joshua Hale Fialkov (Cataclysm: Ultimate X-Men) and upcoming superstar artist, Mario Guevara. The FF – Future Foundation – is all that stands between the Ultimate universe and COMPLETE AND UTTER DOOM! Can Sue Storm, Tony Stark, Machine Man and Sam Wilson face the oncoming devastation directly after the events of Cataclysm?
And finally, Miles Morales is back in his own web-slinging solo-series, MILES MORALES: ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN by creator Brian Michael Bendis (Ultimate Spider-Man, All-New X-Men) and artist Dave Marquez (Cataclysm: Ultimate Comics Spider-Man, All-New X-Men). In the wake of earth-shattering events, Miles is back in action with a new status quo and a new outlook on life! But there is no time to sit back and relax. A BIG villain from Peter Parker’s past is alive and well and about to turn New York upside down.
