ALL-NEW ULTIMATES #1

Written by MICHEL FIFFE

Art by AMILCAR PINNA

Cover by DAVID NAKAYAMA

Variant Cover by DAVID MARQUEZ (FEB140777)

FOC –03/17/14 On-Sale - 04/09/14

This April, witness the birth of a super-team unlike any you’ve seen before in ALL-NEW ULTIMATES #1 – the brand new series from critically acclaimed creator Michel Fiffe and rising star Amilcar Pinna!

As the world attempts to rebuild following untold destruction, we need heroes more than ever. Witness the birth of a new team of Ultimates – as Spider-Man, Black Widow, Kitty Pryde, Bombshell and Cloak & Dagger officially unite to tackle a vicious, rampant crime wave plaguing the streets of New York City!

“It’s a war zone in the streets of New York, Hell’s Kitchen in particular.” says Michel Fiffe, in an interview with Marvel.com. “Certain neighborhoods have been torn apart by the recent galactic cataclysm and crime is exponentially growing; local super-powered gangs rule the environment. That’s where Miles and the gang come in, to act with a grittier, more immediate problem while trying to find their own footing as super heroes.”

But Hell’s Kitchen isn’t the new Ultimates’ only problem. Diamondback and her gang of Serpent Skulls run the city’s drug & weapons trade and deal in citywide terror. NYPD detective Brigid O’Reilly and her anti-gang unit are on the hunt for Scourge, a new serial killer who’s exterminating anyone in a mask. They’ll get close, but not without a few casualties! And that’s just the first issue!

Don’t miss the blockbuster first outing of a new team for a new generation. The future of the Ultimate Universe is now – and it all starts this April in ALL-NEW ULTIMATES #1!

Well they do have cool looking costumes, but I think I'll pass.

Really just want this because of the cover

This looks like it could be something. I'm a fan of books like The New Teen Titans, Young Justice and Runaways. This looks like it could be a "mainstream" Runaways or Young Avengers. I've been meaning to give Miles Morales a try as Spider-Man...

no more ultimate x-men :/ but im about this

Man I can't wait for this title. The art isn't bad either

#11 Posted by Ando123 (220 posts) - - Show Bio

I'll be reading this¡

#12 Edited by CommanderShiro (175 posts) - - Show Bio

Probably my most anticipated title this year. I loved the chemistry these characters had in Ultimate Comics Spider-Man.

Looks like a pretty cool book, but it feels weird having the main Ultimates team be a bunch of teenagrs. Still looks cool, though.

This is going to be so friggin' awesome. I can't wait. :)

Can't wait to spend my hard-earned cash on this!

Looks great so far. Loved Copra by Fiffe and I love Ultimate Spider-Man with Miles!

@maddpanda531: These guys are referred to as the Young Ultimates in some solicits. The big main universe team that takes over from the actual Ultimates is the Future Foundation.

I wonder if Fiffe will remember that Dagger is (or was) mutophobic towards Kitty? I'd be surprised if that doesn't get brought up at least once. I think I'll have to give this a pass in monthlies due to budget constraints, but I might pick up the trades for this and Ultimate FF when they drop.

That cover though

@jonny_anonymous: Wonder will the more focused direction suit the Ultimate universe better?

I'll definitely give Miles Morals and his Ultimate Friends a shot.

Just kidding.

This new Ultimate Universe status quo feels very weird to me since I've been rereading the entire UU these past few weeks so I'm used to the old again but as weird as this seems by golly I am excited for this as well as Ultimate FF and Miles Morales. LONG LIVE THE UU! RIP to the Ultimate X-Men though. :(

@jonny_anonymous: There's only three titles (I think) and two of them are very interconnected (Considering Spidey is in both).

@maccyd: Oooh. Yea i think it makes sense for such a small number of books.

Can't wait to see Diamondback. :-)

I think that's Dimond Back in the last scan on the far right

@maccyd: Yep. You should check out Marvel Mayhem: Villain's Tale it's full of Z-Listers

@jonny_anonymous: Who knows?

#34 Posted by Hysteria (255 posts) - - Show Bio

Sadly no Kitty Pryde in this preview. But I know she is in the book.

Can't wait! Really want to just sleep 'til this gets released in April :P

Haven't read much Ultimate stuff the past year or so. I read some Ultimate Comics Xmen and loved it! Still haven't read anything with Miles Morales in it so I'm still extremely skeptical about it. But I think I may pick up the first issue of this! It looks pretty good! And the art work is really good!

not sure if i want to buy any ultimate spidey stuff thats not by bendis

(From a Black guy) SOHH now we are just excluding white male characters altogether? An now we've flopped the gender mix so that it's all women and a couple guys. I am all for diversity but ultra liberal is as bad as ultra conservative. (Can't believe I am the one to log this complaint, but it rocks my suspension of disbelief when they are so havy handed with this type of thing).

(From a White guy) I haven't even noticed there weren't any white males on the team. All I was looking at was a mash of my favorite heroes. The book is looking like Ultimate Spiderman 3 (in my opinion). After 35 episodes they will add a white guy who's ehite, has a green costume, and the guys power will be dragon/martial arts. 5th degree black belt in Karate and Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
His name will be Tommy Jason

I know the feles. I'm going to read a couple issues and hope for the best.

Been awhile since I checked in on these books. Is Ultimate Jessica Drew going by Black Widow now?

#45 Edited by COBRAMORPH (1554 posts) - - Show Bio

what is this abonomination? Dagger does not have a cleavage showing boob-cross? Nor a bathing suit hiked tightly & securely up her ass cleavage? There is no way she can properly distract superior male enemies. Totally unrealistic.

But anyway, they turned Black Widow into an ultimate spider female ripoff? That sucks. Thats on the same low level of crap as DC making Nightwing take over as Batman, or turning Spoiler into Batgirl. Might as well just use the name Arachne then. Its obvious they are just trying to lure in people who saw Widow in the Movies. Same with having Spiderman there.

#47 Posted by Drewyetti (67 posts) - - Show Bio

Not bad, but i prefer Jessica Drew to keep her old costume and call herself arachne as i like how her whole face is covered apart from the hair as that looked cool as she was made for the costume. Also i would be cool if they added more superheroes from asian and oriental backgrounds.

@drewyetti: Jessica Drew "hey Hawkeye, I've renamed my self Black Widow in honor of the person who killed your wife and kids in front of you!"
