Who Or What Is Ultimate X? Shadow Reveal 3

Here it is, the reveal of...a fire chick.

You've seen the other shadow reveals.  They might've been a little surprising.  The only one left was the figure in flames.  Now that Marvel has revealed it, what do you think?


Looks like Ultimate Liz Allen to me.  Not much of a surprise there.  We still don't know who the others are or why they're together.  We can assume it's some sort of new mutant team in the Ultimate Universe (not THE New Mutants).  Who is responsible for getting these youngsters together?  We know it can't be Professor X or Magneto.  Perhaps we'll get another (new) image before February.

I'll still probably pick this up just to see how it is but none of the characters see too appealing to me. We'll see though

looks like ultimate completely new characters. i find myself shockingly unexcited about the story... BUT... 
seeing the name Arthur Adams up there made me raise my eyebrows like.. OVER my head. like in cartoons and ish.
 
haven't seen him do anything in a while.

I was more intrigued when it was just the first image of him alone at school but I don't really care I don't read any ultimate title.I do like those wings though.

Okay, there goes my Phoenix theory. I am intrigued by who these characters are.

This is coool. (:

I'm guessing the fire girl is Liz Allan. I'm not sure about the others though.

There's something missing. I just can't put my finger on it.

No.  I mean the way the promo was drawn, it looks like there should be someone at the top. They are all pushed down and there has to be a reason.

I don't trust Jeph Loeb writing anything in the Ultimate Universe since his work on Ultimatum.

It still feels like there's something missing. Too much empty space at the top, they should squeeze in another character.

Actually he was done before that in the Ultimate Galactus trilogy. He was one of the teams that went in to find Ultimate Vision in Russia along with Cap and Fury. 
 
It's safe to assume they're Ultimate versions of someone in mainstream Marvel, but it's pretty obvious this is going the way of most of Marvel's other Ultimate Comics line books. They're pretty much no longer retelling or reimagining of old 616 stories, anymore.

Liz is no suprise to me! 
 
But the rest are just a big question mark!

This picture is much cooler if you play the BIRD AND THE WORM BY THE USED while looking at it.
Just saying.

Posted by Citizen 14

I'm a bit leery about it as well. J.L. is a good writer and all (The Long Halloween) but his grasp of the Ultimate Universe is a bit suspect.
 
Personally, I think the bird guy is a bit feral looking.

Ultimate Kestrel? Just going by the fact that the name reminds me of Weapon X, Kestrel was black and has a bird name.

Posted by War Killer

I never got a chance to jump into the first X-Men book, I'll buy the first issue and let the story tell me whether or not I should keep it in my pull-list. It does look good though, the art is great, and the "we don't know who these guys are?!" tone is helping.

Is the guy with claws Ultimate Mimic?

Posted by G-Man
@Queen's Halo: Maybe Ultimate Invisible Woman is there and we just can't see her...

I reckon the person on fire is Magma.

Posted by Cylencer

 Okay so here's my idea (thanks to other people posting farther back for this. My thoughts are: Ultimate Wicked (Genosis X-Factor 616), Liz Allen/Firestar, Daken or Wildchild, and Mimic

Posted by ryanpadd14

so that could either be Firestar (who in my opinion was just a waste of the ultimate universes time, like how come firestar couldnt have died in ultimatum instead of psylocke who was actually an interesting character or one of the other countless heroes that died...seems like bull to me) or it could be ultimate magma being introduced......people need to remember that marvel is just teasing right now, for all we know these are just SOME of the team members that their only showing to peek interest and gather back readers...the team could be these mutants plus the old x men, or maybe other new characters, im just saying to not make judgements yet when the teams full roster (and team name too) is as of yet unrevealed

  I know in one teaser image, the girl with black hair was having visions of the dead from Ultimatum (click here for the image).  She is seen looking directly at Scott in the picture.  Plus in the image above, she has red/orange energy coming from her head and hands.  Could she just be an emo Jean Grey who died her hair and tried starting a new life (she has a name tag saying Karen on her name tag)?  Farfetched, I know.  But who the hell knows at this point?

Most solicitation artwork leaves a space at the top so the series title/logo doesn't cover up any of the artist's hard work.

@G-Man: Well apparently this is what I get for expressing my opinion.

@Queen's Halo: I totally agree that it appears as if something is missing.
