First Look: SURVIVE #1

Who Withstood the Cataclysm? Your First Look at SURVIVE #1!

This March, the Ultimate Universe attempts to rebuild from total devastation at the hands of Galactus. But with every ending there comes a new beginning – and the next stage of the Ultimate Universe starts here! Today, Marvel is pleased to present your first look at SURVIVE #1 from the blockbuster creative team of Brian Michael Bendis and Joe Quinones!

Galactus, the Devourer of Worlds descended upon the Ultimate Universe with an insatiable hunger. Though he was defeated by the bravery of a small band of heroes – the cost was devastatingly high. New York City lays a smoldering ruin, and not everyone made it back alive. Many of the Ultimates are dead – and the remaining heroes are all beaten, broken, and emotionally drained.

“You’ve got all these characters [that] have been through hell together and now they’re coming out the other side and they’re kind of committed to each other, now that Captain America’s gone and some other characters aren’t making it back,” says writer Brian Michael Bendis in an interview with Marvel.com.

“A lot of these characters are very young, and with that comes a lot of emotion, a lot of drama, a lot of people making some disastrous mistakes both in their professional and in their personal lives; and all of that will be on display right away.”

Witness the birth of a new team of Ultimates! Who survived the fury of Galactus? Who didn’t make it out alive? What will become of S.H.I.E.L.D? The future of the Ultimate Universe is happening now! All your questions will be answered this March in SURVIVE #1!

I hope Cap, Thor and Punisher make it out. Their fates were left up in the air

What's up with her...um, chest area?

Edited by Jonny_Anonymous

Why do they only mention New York when Jersey and most of Europe was wiped off the map

That Coipel cover looks great, can't wait for this to come out.

Geez Sue, wear a bra.

@micah: Um...you do realize that they're at Cap's funeral, right?

Edited by Tellumo

@jonny_anonymous: Because it's the Ultimate universe, Europe's been destroyed about 3 times now.

@maddpanda531: I'm not believing anything till I see a body, all they found was his shield

Still, they could have spared a mention

I still can't swallow the female Peter Parker......

:D in my pull list¡¡

Edited by Maddpanda531

@micah: I guess that's a good point. I mean, it IS a comic book.

But, then again, this is the Ultimate Universe, where "Dead means dead". That having been said, I wouldn't be surprised if Cap stays dead, but gets replaced by a new Cap, in the fashion of Ultimate Spider-Man and Ultimate Wolverine.

Edited by micah

@maddpanda531: The last scene he's in is him jumping out of a plane after crashing the ship into galactus mouth. I highly doubt they would end arguably one of the most popular Ultimate characters that way. If he still does die in the future it will be epic

Wait so Thor doesn't get a funneral? Seems legit.

God thanks Bendis for killing off Ult Cap and Thor so you could ship Miles & Kitty. On a side note why is no one mourning Thor? He picked up Kitty's slack for being worthless in the battle. I don't like where the Ultimate universe is going.

What is it with Bendis and crappy over dramatic funerals! this pretty much gonna be Ultimate Fallout, Secret Invasion aftermath, Avengers Dissembled all over again...

I cannot wait for character who barely spoke to captain america to go say nonsense about how great he was and then cry, and walk away. Heck given how insulting the ultimate universe has become to its own golden era I would not rule out Bruce banner appearing and say "yh he was a jerk to me, lied to me, bullied me behind my back and used me as a weapon but i love him he's the nicest person in the world, truly he embodied the spirit of modern liberal america"

What most surprising is that of all the ultimate characters to not, its the biggest failure commercially and blandest characters in the ultimate universe - the Ultimate Fantastic Four. How is that least successful element is the one team that survived through! I blame those losers who go to ever convention and ask for a ultimate fantastic four return.

But hey there always Next Year's Ultimate Event when sales begin to decline for Ultimate FF

Thor isn't dead

@micah: But didn't Ultimate Peter Parker die because the car he hit Norman with exploded? The most popular Ultimate character was taken out by a car explosion. I feel like, by comparison, crashing a ship into Galactus isn't such a bad way to go out...

Thor isn't dead

I'm just gonna assume hes dead until further notice. He was nowhere to be seen at Caps funeral. The only this would be forgivable is if Thor became Galactus' herald. Now that would be pretty sweet.

@New_World_Order: why? he's just trapped inside the Negative Zone and he's immortal so unless Galactus ate him then everyone should assume that he's alive and will be back eventually

Edited by micah

@maddpanda531: True, Peter went down swinging against Norman, and his death was epic, I'm just not ready to lose Cap. I mean we don't have much of the old guard left

@micah: Ah, now I getcha. Well, at least we still have...Ironman?

Posted by micah

@maddpanda531: True dat, and here's hoping the new Ultimate books are good like the previous ones

Posted by Maddpanda531

@micah: It's looking like it's going to have a very different tone, for sure. But I'm definately hoping it's good!

Posted by micah

@maddpanda531: If it's anything like the last arc of the latest Ultimates run, it'll be awesome, sooooo looking forward to it

Posted by Maddpanda531

@micah: I actually never read the latest Ultimates run, although I heard it was good. I used to read the Ultimates, but you can probably guess which point made me stop.

I'm I the only more concerned about Ultimate Frank Castle? I feel like Cap is still probably alive.

And Thor will be back, no way he couldn't so calm down y'all :)

Edited by micah

@maddpanda531: I Know, I honestly think if Ultimatum had not happened, the Ultimate Universe would eventually overtaken the 616 universe, but you should read the last arc of Ultimate Comics: The Ultimates, its really good

If Ultimate Cap has been permanently killed-off, I'm gonna set somebody's face on fire.

I don't like this weird new UU with all these weird teenagers.

Posted by christianrapper

@jonny_anonymous: who the heck care about new jersey? you might have just said deleware or rhode island. i think the whole reason that galactus attacked was to get rid of new jersey.

Posted by Maddpanda531

@micah: I'll definately look into it. Thanks for the reccommendation!

Before Cap Died did he at east scream at Galactus : "DO YOU THINK THIS A STANDS FOR EARTH?!"

Then Galactus ran away in fear

They made it pretty clear the Punisher was dead

@crackdown: They think he didn't make it out, but like I said with Cap I won't believe anything till I see a body

I think Cataclysm is the end note for my UU reading, Veshark.

You're a braver man than I, RB. I left the UU once Hunger happened...
