You'd think it'd be difficult to make predictions about an event that won't even start until November, but Marvel has been dropping clues all over books like Ultimate X-Men and Ultimate Origins. We know that Marvel intends Ultimatum to be an event that rattles the universe to the core. Nothing will ever be the same once it's done.

Yes, I know what you're thinking, but let's assume that particular boast actually holds true for once.

Based on solicitations for the first two issues, it appears as if the Ultimate Universe will be experiencing its own Crisis. Natural disasters and weather-related phenomena plague the planet. All across the world, mechanical Watchers have sprung up, silently monitoring the impending disaster.

It's about this point that Magneto begins his latest quest for world domination or what have you. I'm not sure what causes the natural disasters or what relevance they have to the story, but I can theorize as to Magneto's role. Readers of Ultimate Origins will know that the mutant gene was artificially created by American scientists during WWII as just one more offshoot of the Super Soldier Program. A young Canadian soldier named James Howlett became the world's first mutant, codenamed Mutant Zero. You, of course, know him better as Wolverine.

Magneto was not a Holocaust survivor, as he was in the original comics. Instead, his parents worked for Weapon X. At some point, the mutant gene must have passed out of their control, because his parents claimed to be searching for a cure. At some point in his early life, Magneto was exposed to the gene and gained his powers. Unimpressed by his parents' goals, a teenage Magneto killed his mother and freed Wolverine.

It's interesting to wonder how Magneto's human-hating ways must be affected by the knowledge that his powers were created in a test tube. A twinge of self-loathing, perhaps? I believe that his ultimate goal is to expose every last man, woman, and child on Earth to the mutant gene. It's already spread far beyond the control of the government and S.H.I.E.L.D. It's even showing up as a street-level drug called Banshee. If Magneto knows how the gene spread, he may be able to extend the process to its fullest.

This would certainly change the Ultimate books on a fundamental level. What's the purpose of a team of X-Men when mutants are no longer the minority but the dominant life form? What's so fantastic about Reed Richards and his family now? How would society react when teachers and traffic cops and stockbrokers start shooting lasers out their fingers? Picture the entire situation as the exact opposite of M-Day, or if Magneto had actually succeeded in his plan in the first X-Men movie.

Perhaps Magneto doesn't initially try to spread the mutant gene. Maybe he has some other demand in mind. The mutant gene might be a threat he holds over humanity's head, hence the "Ultimatum" title. Regardless, everything I'm reading seems to point to one conclusion. No more humans.

They are set in a different reality, not the Ultimate U.

X-Men is pretty good but it needs to be restarted: i'd love if they had new mutants come in.

Mark Brooks, the current artist, is not my favorite artist.
The person who drew the cable and sentinel arcs was good.

I hope Ultimate Deadpool will appear in that. 
SPOILER
Also I want Black Panther to be someone else....
