Quick Question: what the hell happened to Zorn and Xorn, i never bothered with Ult XMen, but after the whole Tian vs city thing was forgotten under sam humphries, i was excited to see one of them on the cover.
Fun read for sure. Haven't followed Ult U titles for a long while but this one's interesting.
@novemberx2 to each their own I guess. I think they're doing a good job of setting up the differences between 616 and the Ult universe (like Surfer being horrified by Galactus' modus operandi and the whole "empty, dead space" stuff).
but these differences were already there, we all knew the ult Sufer had nothing to do with Galactus. the book cannot be one tread the boring old "oh in my universe we do this, but here we don't do that" nonsense that we saw in spidermen. if anything, the book actually blurs the lines between the universes more, replacing the original and clever warren ellis galactus swarm with a silly purple man, re-designing the kree and chitaturi to look like there mainstream counterparts. For someone who has been reading both universes for a long time, this book does terrible job at setting up the differences.
anyone else bugged by the fact the the kree and Chitauri are nothing like Millar/Hitch and Ellis portrayed them?
Overall, good book, nice art.
BUT its just not very "ultimate" none of this infinity gauntlet, president cap and giant purple man invading the universe nonsense would of happened in the glory days. The ultimate universe has become the embarrassing bizarro universe it was criticised as being in early days.
i'd accept Young Justice never returning if they did a justice league show in the same universe. That would be a lot more successful as it will have the star power to bring in younger audience. Lets be honest kids were not gonna tune in to see Robin and Aqualad, no matter how well written the show was
