First Look: CATACLYSM: THE ULTIMATES’ LAST STAND #3

A couple characters from the Ultimate Universe are headed to the Marvel Universe.

Things are getting desperate for the residents of the Ultimate Universe. Is there any way to save the Ultimate Universe or are we really seeing the end of everything? Take a look at what we can expect in January.

The fate of the entire Ultimate Universe lies in the hands two very unlikely champions this January in CATACLYSM: THE ULTIMATES’ LAST STAND #3! From the blockbuster creative team of Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley – the Ultimates know Galactus is not of their universe, and they’re willing to do anything to stop him! Including sending Miles Morales and Ultimate Reed Richards into the Marvel Universe for help! But has Reed redeemed himself in this time of crisis – or is he only out for himself?

“This is the first time we really get to see Ultimate characters explore the Marvel Universe,” said Senior Editor Mark Paniccia. “It won’t be a picnic and will have emotional ramifications for one of the travelers.”

Faced with impossible odds in a strange new universe, are they the saviors of the Ultimate Universe? Or its last two survivors? Don’t miss CATACLYSM: THE ULTIMATES’ LAST STAND #3this January for the answer!

I kinda wanna read this even tho i've only ever read about 5 issues set in the Ultimate Universe. Those 2 travelling to the 616 interests me.

Also who's blonde Wolverine?

I should try the Ultimate Universe someday. This plot is really interesting. I wonder if they'll really destroy the Ultimate Universe. Part of me hopes so because it'll make things very interesting.

I have suspitions... Thats look to me like local version or part of Crisis on Infinity Worlds and not only that, but whole Avengers/New Avengers story also. What we will have after that? Well...

@mucklefluga: It's the ultimate universe's Daken

I wish that people would stop calling him that...he's not the UU's Daken...he shares no similarities with Daken at all other than being Wolverine's son...they have different mother's...they have different names...they have different powers...being Wolverine's son from another reality does not automatically make him Ultimate Daken

same here I read the Ultimate Hulk vs Wolverine, and New Ultimates vs Avengers but besides that I haven't read anything in the Ultimate but I might start getting the Cataclysm it sounds interesting with two of them coming to the Marvel U and all.

So it turns out that on my Comixology purchases i had a copy of the Cataclysm: Spider-Man issue and it was pretty great (bearing in my mind i know nothing about these characters). What i don't get now tho is that if Miles is going to the 616 in this 'Last Stand' mini, what's going to happen in the 'Spider-Man' one?

The Ult SM tie-in focuses more on SM, Dagger, Cloak, and Bombshell and their actions during Cataclysm. It all takes place a tad bit before the main story.

I really hope the Ultimate Universe is just being relaunched with more characters like Miles.

Remember when people were convinced that the Ultimate Universe continuity was going to replace 616 continuity? Well this is looking like another last ditch effort to keep interest in the Ultimate Universe.

So what does that have to do with this story?

I guess I'm one of the few people that actually like the Ultimate Universe. Of course it was much better when it was fresh and new, but what I like is that the status quo can change at any given moment. Look at all the X-Men that were killed off (including Wolverine, Cyclops, Angel, Nightcrawler, and more) and it stuck! Peter Parker - - dead and gone only to replaced by a new guy donning the suit (well, a cooler looking suit anyway) and he's popular. Reed Richards is now a crazy mad scientist type and I sincerely doubt that will ever change. Anyway, I still enjoy the UU - - it's akin to the current DC's Earth 2 I suppose - - and hope it doesn't get wiped out.

Yeah but one day they will bring back.

@komickev: your not the only one, I like the Ultimate lineup. The Ultimate Universe put themselves in this problem because they killed off most of their characters
