That promo text from Marvel is almost unintelligible.

I expect Cap, Thor, Iron Man, Reed and all the X-Men except Kitty to die. They better not live and be away from the new ultimate books.

@cheesesticks: Reed is going to be in Ultimate FF

This is what I'm thinking too. He's probably going to be the person the FF doesn't want joining

@micah: @inferiorego: maybe wrong...but I'm thinking Reed is gonna be the ALL-NEW DR. DOOM!! lol It's pretty obvious when you look at who's behind the cover and solicit details. For God's sakes his face is even scarred just like Dr. Doom.

"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?"

This is why I voted for Marvel in this week's poll. Ultimate universe represent! lol. I'm in for all 3 post-Cataclysm titles :D

@iceslick: He could be the new Doom, but I really want him to attempt to find redemption at least

Wait, Reed might end up being Dr. Doom. This is AWesome!

Galactus goin ham on the universe.

Edited by iceslick

@micah: I think the chances of that are very slim, because knowing him he probably fooled Susan into feeling sorry about what he's done and the ruining the chances of having a daughter. I kind of like the fact that he's evil. lol

I keep saying this and I'm going to say it again - THIS EVENT IS AWESOME. I can't wait to see the conclusion and then get all of the All New Ultimate NOW books. All of them. ALL. I love the UU.

Also, in terms of the Ultimate FF - I think it's going to be a team AND a school/refugee and that's where all of the mutants will be save, save for Kitty. I doubt they'll kill all the mutants off. A world without Mutants in Marvel is like … a world I don't want to think about.

Go home Galactus. I feel like this whole line of events has really taken away from the Ultimate Gah Lak Tus trilogy. Oh well.

Wait if the Avengers die we may see the Ultimate Versions of the Thunderbolts. Whoo go Galactus go earn yourself some scalps

What kitty is doing seems smart if you don't know shit about Galactus, that's probably what I would have thought to do.

This, I can't, sigh. I wish this series really was better and didn't have such face-palming ideas.

'' After this, nothing will ever be the same again. '' This line should be banned from ALL comics.. Just.. enough.

ehh, what the characters are doing is what anyone that is ignorant about Galactus would do

Ultimate universe has not been the same since ultimatum, despite some of its good titles. I hope the relaunch would be improvement, although i fear that people would be less enthusiastic because the ultimate comics line is being relaunched again.
