Should Marvel bring back the Malibu Universe?
- The sales of Marvel are struggling, investing in bringing back a line of comics that failed back when sales were much better does not make much sense.
- The Ultraverse had it's fans, but there are nowhere near enough to justify or support the move
Ultraverse was cool before Marvel got hold of it. Once they bought it, the crossovers with Marvel were okay, but other than that, the U'verse titles went downhill. I think the characters would fit just fine in the Marvel U, but it wouldn't be the same as having them in their own universe not owned by Disney/ Marvel. And yes, the original deal makes it near impossible to bring the characters back.
I don't know that I'd support introducing Ultraverse characters into Marvel 616. I don't trust that they'd be handled any better by Marvel now than they were back then. Better to keep them separated in my humble opinion.
That said, I would absolutely friggin' love to see an Official Handbook of the Ultraverse put together someday.
