LBCC '09: Jeph Loeb, Part 2 (Ultimatum, New Ultimates, TV & More)

Part 2 of the Long Beach Jeph Loeb interview.

Here's the long awaited Part 2 of our interview with Jeph Loeb.  In this segment, we talk about a little story arc called Ultimatum.  People were pretty vocal about all the deaths in the Ultimate Universe.  Some people really liked the story while others complained.  What people tend to forget is it's not just the writer that comes up with the idea.  Check out what Jeph had to say about Ultimatum including some plans for the New Ultimates.  There's also some information on Jeph's upcoming TV project, "Day One."

I am okay with Ultimatum as long as it didn't effect Ultimate Spider-Man.

I'm really looking forward to New Ultimates, I like Jeph's writing and his stories, Cho's work is great as well, and I'm guessing from how Loeb was talking on  the Mutants and his "secret" project, I thinking Ultimate Comics: X-Men is on it's way (or something that is about the reamaining X-Men and Mutants). Great Review G-Man!
Also, here's that huge New Ultimates cover Loeb was talking about.

Screw Teen Wolf...a movie that needs a remake is the Back to the Future series.

does anyone else wonder why Ka-Zar and Shanna are in the New Ultimates? I don't know much about the characters other than I don't really have much of an interest in them. Does Ka-Zar even have powers? Isn't he just a human at max ability? And if they're on a government run team, why are they still wearing loin cloths? And I think Zarda sucks too. I do like the idea of Valkyrie kind of replacing Thor, and cap, black panther, and iron-man being on the team is cool, but I feel like the line up should be better. They should put Storm and Colossus on the team! Who cares if mutants are outlawed, SHIELD is part of the government. Who do they have to answer to? I'm just sayin...

So I'm guessing the Thor replacement is gonna be Perun??

Neat hearing all the things Loeb did for the Ultimate Universe.

Loeb did prove one thing with Ultimatum - Marvel could in fact, make something worse than One More day. XD

It did, it's just placed six months after it, leaving a huge gap of things that happened and have to be explaned
