    Ahh okay.

    I'm actually excited for a possible 616/Ultimate Spider-Man cross over as long as it's one thing and done.

    Imagine the impact on May seeing a grown up Peter.

    Or of him seeing a teenage Gwen.

    I still think it'll be time-travel or something, and Ultimate Pete will get to meet his successor/Miles will get some tips from his predecessor.

    A crossover would be cool, I think

    And Bendis is a good enough writer (and a good enough Spidey writer) that he would make it fun and probably quite uplifting too

    In time, you will learn to love this new Scarlet Spider just as much.

    He's morally ambiguous, you know, and kids love that.

    Bringing back Ben Reilly would be the redundant-est thing

    and this is coming from someone who likes the character

    yeah

    Oh hey we have Peter Parker and also Kaine who is a clone of Peter but kind of different and now we will also have Ben who is a clone of Peter and pretty much the same?

    Have any of you dudes had issue with the digital codes?

    I just grabbed all the UC issues with them, with the intent of linking my comixology account and buying the older issues on there. When I went to register them, the system ate three of my books, actually redeemed two properly, and the sixth was misprinted and for the wrong title.

    Fun! Also, I've been trying to contact Marvel support, and they won't get back to me.

    He's the second-in-command at Camp Angel, an interment camp for mutants, and his superior is an old dude who's talking about how close he is to retiring.

    So one imagines that the old dude will get killed, and Walker will be like:



    and take it out on the mutants.

    Which is pretty tragic since
    the Commander is like the one not crazy person trying to get Humans and Mutants to get along. It is not going well.

    Some Ultimate Comics stuff from this weeks AIC (also looks like a mini will be announced on sunday!)
    Shifting gears to the Ultimate line for a moment, SpiderX wanted to know, "Is there any chance we will see former Ultimate Fantastic Four Members Sue and Ben show up in the new Ultimate Comics? I'm sure they would be interested to know about Reed as the Maker of the Children of Tomorrow and Johnny's whereabouts. I was also thinking since Sue is a biotechnologist, Fury could get her to come in and help analyze Miles. She could give an explanation as to how his abilities work and maybe even discover those webshooters that he so desperately needs. *wink* *wink*"

    Alonso: Spider X, have you been bugging our offices? I'll give you this: One of the characters you've mentioned will show up in "Ultimates" #10 and play a big role in the stunning conclusion to the war with Reed Richards' City in issue #12. As for the web shooters, all I can say is, if -- and I mean, IF -- Miles gets web-shooters -- or anything like them -- you'll know the same time he does.

    He followed up asking, "With 'Ultimate Hawkeye' finished are there plans for another Ultimate Universe Mini-series?"

    Alonso: All I can say is we have some very special plans brewing in the Ultimate Comics Universe, with new blood like Sam Humphries ("The Ultimates") and an exciting writer whose name will provoke ooh's and ahh's at WonderCon coming into the mix -- it's a great time to be an Ultimate Comics reader.

    And on the Spidey side of the Ultimate U, robcastor729 had this query about some classic villains: "Will we see Carnage and/or Venom again in the Ultimate Universe?"

    Alonso: Venom and Carnage are in the queue, but it'll be a little while before you see them.

    Also some preview art from Ultimates #10 (Luke Ross' first issue)

    I hope if Sue and Ben re-appear ( un-intended pun!) , that their budding relationship isn't just tossed aside.

    It isn't really budding since they are married or at least engaged to be

  • Witch_Hunter_84Witch_Hunter_84 Registered User regular
    Hm, they said only one of those characters would show up though. So who would stand a better chance against Richards, Sue or Ben?

    If you can't beat them, arrange to have them beaten in your presence.

    She asked him to marry her at the end of Ultimate Doom, that was the last we've seen of them

    As much as I want to see an interaction between Sue and Reed, and while Sue probably would be able to combat him one on one better, I really wanna see what Ben can do.

    Ben is one of the most powerful Ultimate Universe heroes right now though

    He's even stronger than he was when he was regular Thing

    He fought in Doomsday! (against the mutated Captain Marvel and the final battle), We saw Ben and Sue very briefly in Ultimate Comics Spider-Man 155, but really doomsday was their last appearance.

    Brian Wood is the new writer of Ultimate X-Men as of issue 12

    I like him more than Spencer so woo!

  • UltimateInfernoUltimateInferno Registered User regular
    I really enjoyed Spencer, but could understand why people don't. Wonder if this means that Spencer is pretty much done with Marvel?

  • HadjiQuestHadjiQuest Registered User regular
    Maaaan, Humphries and Wood are still great writers, but it's a little discouraging that they couldn't even get through a year with the writers they were hyping.

    Spencer did an AMA on Reddit a week or two back and said he had some new projects from Marvel coming up soon.

    what is an ama?

    I play games on ps3 and ps4. My PSN is DouglasDanger.

    "Ask Me Anything"

    BKV did one last week too.

  • HadjiQuestHadjiQuest Registered User regular
    I feel weird about Spencer. It seemed like he was going to be this huge star super quick, but as soon as he signed Marvel exclusive he receded into the deep background. Has he done anything for Marvel besides UXM and Iron Man 2.0? I wonder how he would've done if he had stayed at DC a while longer. DC's writing talent pool is still so shallow that it seems like it'd be easier to make a name for yourself there.

  • RedDeliciousRedDelicious Registered User regular
    He was on Secret Avengers for a while.

    If Hickman got pulled to work on Avengers I don't exactly think it says anything bad.

    I am super bummed to lose him.

    I'm less bummed losing Spencer.

  • RedDeliciousRedDelicious Registered User regular
    I think it's bad. Ultimates is a title that will have a lot more editorial freedom than a title like Avengers will.

    Well, new issue of Ultimates was pretty good. Cant wait to see how the next one turns out since it seems to all be coming to a head now.

    Nng. Pretty disappointed, personally. Nothing really happened - we're about two minutes beyond where we were last issue. Everything could have been done in half the pages, or less. Lots of big splash pages, but not much moving forwards. Maybe they had to stretch it out cuz there was so much awesome stuff planned for the next one.

    Nothing happened?!
    The President/Joint Secrurity Team taking over shield, the President launching nukes, Hulk getting talked down by Reed, and Zorn officially attacking is nothing?

    Eh.
    Zorm was already storming off angrily at the end of last issue. We knew he was flying off to attack the City, with all of his scary undefined powers. That didn't change. Did we really need three pages to see that Zorm was still angry and has scary undefined powers?

    The US president stuff could have been done quicker. The nuke splashpage would have made a good half-way point. If they expected my jaw to drop at the sight of America's full military might unleashed, they shouldn't have spent 7 issues showing me how completely inadequate the US is against the City. Zorm swallowing the lot of them before clashing with City forces would've been a good opportunity to show him doing something, and revealing that Hulk had joined up with Reed would've be a great shocker ending. I expect we'll see that at the end of next ish.

    If they're going to have the president doing stuff, I'm more interested in following Nick Fury's strained loyalties towards a guy who's pushing for a war the States would get their asses kicked in. I'd have liked to see Fury's reaction to the 'Winter Protocols' forcing the take-over of his operation.

    Last ish we were left on the precipice of a huge brawl. This issue, we're left again on the precipice of pretty much the same brawl. Let's get to the brawl already.

    Anyone else do a lot of double takes this issue with who was who? It figures out really easy, it was more a first glance thing.
    Hawkeye in Wonderman's costume, when Britain is drunk at the computers, I thought he was Tony, then Tony in overalls looked like Fixer at first glance , heh
