Is it time to really start worrying? HUNGER is underway in the Ultimate Universe and we saw Galactus find his way over there from the 616 universe. CATACLYSM is coming up and that really doesn't sound too good for the Ultimates.

Check out this first look Marvel released for next month's issue.

This October, the Ultimates make their last stand against the Devourer of Worlds in CATACLYSM 0.1, from blockbuster writer Joshua Hale Fialkov and Mico Suayan and the Ultimate Universe will never be the same!

From the fringes of space and time comes the dreaded Galactus, prepared to feast on the Ultimate Universe! With an entire universe full of new planets to devour, it’s up to the Ultimates to stop him from the catastrophic destruction of their entire universe!

Plus, don’t miss the return of fan-favorite Ultimate Vision as she makes a desperate, last-ditch attempt to stop Galactus and the Gah Lak Tus swarm! But is she enough to stop the coming of the dreaded Devourer of Worlds? Witness the beginning of the end in Cataclysm 0.1!

CATACLYSM #0.1 (AUG130780)

Written by JOSHUA HALE FIALKOV

Art by MICO SUAYAN, LEONARD KIRK, & MIRCO PIERFEDERICI

FOC – 09/30/13, ON SALE – 10/23/13

So is the entire Ultimate line (including Ultimate X Men/ Spider-Man) ending or just the Ultimates title?

But the Ultimate Universe was doing so well. The Ultimate X-Men were about to have their own war, Miles put the suit back on, Fury and his Howling Commandos were about to go out kick some major ass

Are they going to fusion each characters with their counterpart in earth 616 like they did with Galactus and his? Nooooooooooooo but let see what is going to happen after all we still have a Susan storm from a Future so maybe things will change but this universe will survive the coming of Galactus hunger

So we potentially have the joining of two universes... Makes me wonder, what would happen if Di$ney aver acquired WB or at least DC properties. They have been going after big name brands such as Star Wars, Marvel, Pixar, etc... Oh the possibilities

If you read the solicitation for December's Ultimate Spider-man you see he is only going to 616 to figure out how to stop Galactus. There is too much being invested in these story lines to just end. Also they have claimed the end of Ultimate U time and again. Most likely a whole bunch of people will just die in the end.

Some people like the the un616ish storylines and some like the modernisation/twists of 616 stories....

It seems you can't please everyone.

If they do that then Spider-Woman, Cloak and Dagger, Gwen Stacy, Aunt May and MJ need to go with him.

Fantastic! If you haven't started from the beginning of Waid's run, I HIGHLY recommend it. This is a story that takes place over 27 issues, leading up to a 11/10 score of a finale. It's worth checking out from the top.

@bunkerbuster05: Im gonna read Daredevil in this order:

Man without Fear

Mark Waids run.

My problem with Miles being transported to 616 universe is what about his support cast?

#31 Edited by IDontLikeBirds (170 posts) - - Show Bio

I doubt the Ultimate Universe will be destroyed, not exactly Marvel's style (more DC's). As someone said earlier, sounds like Miles is just going to 616 to find out how to stop Galactus. I also just see this setting up things like a crossover or event between the two companies. Marvel doesn't really do reboots. I just see things with what is happening in The Ultimates to play out in Cataclysm (Infinity Gems, Sue Storm from the future/Kang). People are just jumping to conclusions and freaking out.

I think so

Space bar much?

Anyway,I don't really think that they're gonna kill off the Ultimate Universe. Probably going to:

  • Merge the Universes (nononnonononono)
  • Just kill off a bunch of characters and they will survive this event (hopefully yes)
  • They would be rebooted (incredibly unlikely).

I think I agree.

And maybe I have a slight bias because I love the Ultimate Universe,but I agree

I also think so,but still keep your guard up.

But this isn't the first time when they're world was threatened to be destroyed (I don't even see why it's assumed that this is the end),but I agree. Which is slightly wishful thinking,but if they invest and set up so much in this universe (especially lately),then I have my doubts that it's ending.

Anyone else really just want to see Galactus wreck Earth?

I always wanted to see the Avengers legitimately get wrecked by Big G without plot devices saving them.

#37 Edited by locuas (5 posts) - - Show Bio

they will not do it. why? because Ultimate spider-man is Bendis pet project (in the good sense of the word) and he would not be happy if they just end it. worst case scenario? something bad will happen that will screw a lot of characters over like, say...ultimatum. but ending? i don't think it will happen.

@locuas: Meh, they'll save him Miles for something........... Hopefully give him another writer. I tried to get into his series, but to me he was just a bland character. I don't hate him or anything, I just think he needs a better writer.

Also I can't wait for this. Ultimate had a few good ideas here and there, mainly all of them in Ultimate Spider-Man and one or two elsewhere, but as a whole the universe is a basterdization of the Marvel Universe. Same way the New 52 is.

So yeah as soon as Galactus is done with Ultimate? I got a brand new horrible DC earth with his name on it.

#41 Posted by Scantenii (59 posts) - - Show Bio

The Ultimate Universe should have ended when Spider-man died... If you have to add Miles to the 616 just make it the 616 version... Also Marvel should cut it out with the Point One issues. It is a bad idea for numbering that has lasted too long. Just make it a One-Shot or bring back Marvel Premier or Spotlight. How many of the Point One issue that have come out have actually been memorable or worthwhile that you can think of? What's the last Point One that you HAD to read due to post release buzz? What's they last Point One that you weren't disappointed of when you were done reading?

@cameron83: I love Ultimate U it is a lot of fun. Plus they have introduced a lot of new characters recently. What is the point to expand so much? Plus Brian Woods had stated there is going to be a brand new team picking up Ultimate X-men. Why do that for three book arc just to can them?

#44 Posted by AdmiralPetty (18 posts) - - Show Bio

I for one don't particularly care about the fate of the Ultimate Universe as a whole. The Ultimate Universe is no longer a fresh starting point, nor is it free of weird continuity at this point. As to whether this could be the end of the Ultimate Universe, that depends entirely on sales figures(I would be interested to see the sales figures of the Ultimate books other than Spider-Man). I don't think they would do away with everything, particularly Miles Morales, but I could see them doing away with most of it.

Don't get me wrong, I loved the early Ultimate Universe, and Ultimate Spider-Man has kept up a consistently excellent tone and quality overall. But Ultimatum killed my interest in the Ultimate Universe. It wasn't the fact that a lot of well known characters were killed(to be honest that opened up some interesting story possibilities), but the callous way that it was done. I still don't understand how Jeph Loeb can write such excellent stories at one moment and then turn around and write absolutely horrible stories within the next breath.

I do think some good stories have been written since Ultimatum, but the universe just feels tainted and pointless to me as a whole at this point. Rather than see more Ultimate Comics, I would love to see Marvel do more stories like what DC has done with the Elseworlds stories and more recent Earth One stories. That way they can still do things they can't in the normal 616 Universe, but not tied down by years of Ultimate continuity.

All of that said, I do feel for those of you who are interested in current story arcs and don't want to see them cut short.

#45 Edited by locuas (5 posts) - - Show Bio

@Smart_Dork_Dude : good luck with that. bendis has been writting it for more than 10 years now without being changed in all this time. if he is still writing it, is because he wants to and marvel is happy with him as the writer.

#46 Posted by Grimoire (505 posts) - - Show Bio

Don't care about Ultimate universe but if characters do end up dying I hope Ultimate Hulk along with all the other Ultimate Hulk versions die since none of them are as good as the original 616 Hulk is.

#48 Edited by ThanosIsMad (2169 posts) - - Show Bio

Ultimate Marvel is probably being rebooted to fall in line with the movies. You know, so they don't have to continuously shoe-in movie things into 616.
