The new Ultimate X-men was meant to launch two days ago, but I haven't heard (or seen) anything about it except for a couple of teaser images. While searching for some info on the web, I came across these preview pages on comicbookresources.com.
First we have a dark-haired woman who may be Karren Grant, the new alias of Jean Grey in this universe, visiting an unknown red-haired woman. Next we see Colossus apparantly imprisoned and undergoing torture, while Carol Denvers- the head of SHIELD in this reality- holds a press conference. Next, Rogue flees what appear to be army soldiers, only to run headlong into Nimrod. Finally, we see Ultimate Kitty Pryde (using her increadibly cool Shroud identity), Iceman, and Human Torch (who's not a mutant, dammit!) getting ready to spring into action.
The solicitation reads as follows:
"Marvel is pleased to present your first look at Ultimate Comics X-Men #1, from rising stars Nick Spencer & Paco Medina! Iceman, Kitty Pride and the Human Torch discover the true history of the x-gene as the divide between Mankind and Mutantkind grows deeper than ever before! Who are the X-Men and how will they handle the fallout of this universe shattering discovery? Find out in Ultimate Comics X-Men #1 this September, as Ultimate Comics Universe Reborn continues!"
What this preiview doesn't show is where new characters Jimmy and Derek are. Who knows what they're getting up to while all this is going on? Anyone know anything more about what's happening in the Ultimate Universe?
