Mark Millar Unveils New Ultimate Line Up

Posted by G-Man (29408 posts) - - Show Bio

Mark Millar has posted a sneak peak for New Ultimates.  The penciled cover by Leinil Yu shows what appears to be the Punisher, Wasp, Nick Fury, Jim Rhodes, Hawkeye and... Rage?  Rich Johnston over at Bleeding Cool referred to the big guy as "the new Hulk."  I don't know if he's on to something as I try to avoid spoilers and any upcoming information as much as I can.  This is actually from issue #9 so...
 
What do you think of this line up?

I love Rage! I like that Punisher look although it's a bit like Paladin! Ultimate Fury!

That Hulk is the african-american hulk. He's mentioned in a couple of interviews with Millar. No specifics, just that there is an african-american hulk.

The new Hulk looks like a mix between Luke Cage and Rage...

They look like a 90s team and where's the creepy Spiderman from Ultimate Avengers #3?

#16 Posted by goldenkey (2927 posts) - - Show Bio

As long as they have Hawkeye in it and Millar is writing it I'm psyched. I can't wait to see where this leads.  Has the Punisher been introduced in the Ultimate world yet?

Yeah they do kinda look like a 90s team. They just need more pockets and some giant guns.

Not really digging Punisher Cap. I'll wait and see how Millar plays it though. And isn't Rage like the blaxploitation version of Billy Batson?

Hmmm... strange
#20 Posted by Bruce Vain (1869 posts) - - Show Bio

bit odd to see Punisher on a team.

This line-up looks sweet

I don' t think that's hulk... Cause in the UCA #3 cover he was big and green.... unless this him before "hulking"

Thats too bad, I really dig the Red Wasp. Her character has an interesting story. Whats the 411 on Creepy Spiderman?

Okay I think people are fogetting that each team you see in each story arc, will not be in the next one, Ultimate Avengers is Nick Firy's team that he uses for different missions, meaning that the charcters you see in the current arc, will not be in the next, meaning "The Spider" (as in the creepy Spider-Man we saw in #3, that The Spider is his name by the way) will not be in the next arc since Nick changes the team's around after each story is complete, which means, War Machine, Nerd Hulk, Red Wasp, and The Spider will not be in the next arc.

I agree. That looks like the new black widow to me. 
#28 Posted by havco (87 posts) - - Show Bio

that's Jim Rhodes  I thought that was falcon
#29 Posted by Darkchild (40542 posts) - - Show Bio

Hmmmm so Rhody is the guy next to Fury and Hawkeye? WTF is up with Punishers suit?

#30 Posted by Obsurity (263 posts) - - Show Bio

Don't think I'll be picking this up. I enjoyed the artwork in the current series but storyline didn't appeal to me.

He has. He wasn't a war vet, though. He was a cop turned vigilante who was last locked up in prison, if I recall correctly.

Do you even know the storyline?

That's what I'm thinking too, it's strange to see him and Hawkeye and Fury all on the team. They've gone from a superhero to a shooting squad...

You didn't like the Millar run on Ultimates?  Wow, I'm surprised.  I didn't think anyone didn't like it.

I think I've just given up on the Ultimate universe.

:O  Wasp looks soo cool !!

ULTIMATE A-TEAM UNITE!!!!!? Any one else get that vibe? Just a touch? 
 
At least they are going in different directions, I am still coming to terms with No Cyclops or Wolverine.  But it would be redundant, I can't imagine many wolverine storys haven't been told at this point, and Cyclops is center stage in Uncanny now (YAYYY!!! Finally). Hey MILLAR how about some new characters/Storylines? 
 
PS The Ultimate Jim Rhodes is a BADD @$$.  Not that Im a republican or anything, but when he (SPOILER) cooked that whole settlement in the current issue of Ult Avengers, it was a DAYYYYUM moment 4 sure.

Looks cool.

This is why I like the Ultimate universe. It's all up in the air and you never know what is going to happen. It's interesting to see how things play out and the parallels between that universe and the one we are used to.

This is part of the team sent to hunt down Cap and I like it. War Machine is bad ass as well as a Daniel Craig looking brother of Tony Stark.
