Get Ready for the Ultimate Comics Universe to Change FOREVER

This decision will change everything.

When it comes to teasers, let's be honest. We often see the words "change" and "forever" thrown around. After seeing them used so many times, it's hard to take them seriously when used. But when it comes to the Ultimate Universe, you never really know what's going to happen. We've seen some big changes in the past. We've seen several major characters die and stay dead. With the current 'Divided We Fall' arc, you know big things are coming.

Today, Marvel has released a little teaser for ULTIMATES.

The solicits for the issues have been marked as "classified." Marvel is planning something. You're not going to want to miss it.

With the country on the brink of a total meltdown, Captain America must make a decision that will forever change the Ultimate Comics Universe. Find out what that is as Divided We Fall hurtles towards its explosive finale in Ultimate Comics Ultimates #15 & United We Stand kicks off in Ultimate Comics Ultimates #16!

"forever" : another terms to tell "will be retconned in 5 issue

I am betting on captain america president, a new civil war or captain america going full punisher.

Posted by sturmritter

You heard it here first. This is my prediction and has no basis other than speculation. But I'll cap it in spoiler tag just to be sure no one whines:

Captain American will sacrifice himself nobly in order to prevent some disaster. Marvel will do this in order to terminate the Captain America franchise so that they can start selling their comic rebooted as "The First Avenger" without all the US Jingoism from WWII that is built into the character.

Can't wait.

I know what's going to happen!

Ultimate Nick will die, and be replaced by 616 Nick! The universes switch Nicks.

That would be the ultimate troll in comics ever. Lol.

A Captain America President would be interesting. That is one plot line I have never seen before.

But didn't it just change forever like a year ago?

Wait didn't things change forever in Ultimatum

These two are totally accurate and render all comments following totally redundant. Including mine.

OH MY GOD!! HATERS!!! If everything you're going to post is nothing but pessimistic drivel about how much you hate every comic book ever released then why are you hear on this comic book website?????

Sounds more like skepticism than hate. They're right in that this is nowhere near the first time Ultimate has made this claim.

Exactly. If they didn't try and pull something like this every other year or so this might mean something, which is why I pretty much dropped all Ultimate books after Pete Parker's death.

Cap for Prez!!!

heard it all before Marvel.

Love this series. Can't wait :)

Posted by Ramier

either cap is going to die or change his name because there is no more america in the 1610 universe.

Oh my ... it's almost a little bit pitiful (for Marvel) to use such wording! I mean all these empty promises and superlatives the business (publishers, writers, editors, ...) is using are so annoying.

Translated it means: Ok, after we totally ruined the first Ultimate universe just because the sales were going a little bit down, we now see that we totally and absolutely failed and sales are even worse ... so now we starting over (again because the sales statistic ... now much worse, but now we're used to the low level ... they still aren't as high as we need them to satisfy our shareholders, analysts or who ever).

And a bit all those fanboy sites always jumping on this marketing wagon are partly to blame for the low level of an industry just catching sales peaks instead of steady sales and quality. And of course those who buy every crap they got delivered to their comic shop.

EVERYTHING WILL CHANGE FOREVER... for a year... then it will CHANGE AGAIN... then it will STOP FOR BURGERS

Posted by Lvenger

Oh gee another Ultimate Marvel tagline that promises to shake things up. How many times have you relied on this tactic Marvel? It's getting old now.

Really have been enjoying the rebooted ultimate books, have been reading spiderman since issue 1, recently jumoed aboard x-men and have been reading a friend's ultimates, there haven't been stories this good since the line of books started, people who say otherwise clearly haven't read the books.

I've tried. Just doesn't hold my interest.

They should kill him. In the regular Marvel universe I liked Bucky as Cap better anyway.

Posted by Aiden Cross

Wasnt Ultimatum for this.. >_>

Posted by ryuku_ryosake

Wow I totally read the headline as the Ultimate Comics Universe to change to the Forever Universe. You know when there has been too many retconns when when you automatically assume every universe is getting re-branded.

You're right... When it comes to the Ultimate Comics Universe you can't really take anything lightly.

Kill off Captain America and make him Asian. -.-

Posted by Duo_forbidden

I'm so ready for this. Ultimate Comics: Ultimates has been great so far. Cap being president is the only logical explanation I can think of considering the events taken place so far. That, or killing him off.

To be fair each time they said it, it did change 
Posted by livlig

I really like Ultimate Spider-Man, but I think I would've liked it even more if everything in the world around New York and Miles Morales wasn't so fucked up! I'd prefer a down-to-earth universe with Miles, because right now with everything going on, his adventures seem kind of... trivial (even though I like the comics).

The Ultimate Comics: Ultimates and X-Men are wholly uninteresting to me - and I usually love Jonathan Hickman. But I think that is because I am not all that familiar with the previous incarnations of Ultimates and X-Men in the Ultimate universe (or maybe they just suck).

Posted by jaredbright

Yeah, they actually do change things in the Ultimate universe. They never change it back or make it a dream or something.

Edited by jcbart

To be fair though, the times that have drastically changed the Ultimate Marvel Universe have all stuck, so it's not as if the claim holds no ground. I'm intrigued!

Posted by thenexusrebound

I see cap either becoming president, since he is a uniting force for the Ultimates. These taglines though can be deceptive though. I don't imagine they will kill Cap since they just killed Peter last year.

Posted by odysseyuwrf

If Cap becomes a bad guy I will go stark raving mad. No pun intended.

LOL, but it's truth, they do it like each one/two years and so.

LOL, totally agree bro.

Posted by Kurolegacy

You mean there's gonna be another thing that changes the UU forever? What, has it been 5 minutes already?

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

I usually don't pick up this series, but I will defenitely be picking up those issues!

Posted by bunkerbuster05

I honestly wonder how often something can change forever.

Posted by kuma_far

Love Ultimate universe (in fact it was the line of comics that brought me to comics) and I loved the bizarre things happening now.

Posted by whitelantern64

I think Captain America will be faced with a decision to either blow up the world and restart everything fresh slate and all, with him dying during world war 2 or take control of the whole world. Doing option 1 will allow the universe to have a good way to bring back a lot of the old characters while at the same time do something different. E.G. if Captain America died during world war 2, would the US have won the war? and if not how would the new world Order look like with certain characters. Would certain Characters even exist without captain America being alive in the future?
