    So are the Titans like Ninjas, in that the more of them you fight, the easier it is to kick all their asses?

    The more likely it is the writers will have pulled out some dusty old characters they don't mind killing off, in their first appearance in ten years.

    Morrison's Batman is excellent. All-Star is Miller parodying... something.

    We already discussed it in the Bat-Thread. Some are looking forward to it, others don't care. Munch hates it. There's a preview of the first issue up at Newsarama, not much to go on but it's something.

    ASBR isn't a parody.

    Yeah I stopped getting single issues for the most part for about a year because of money issues but now I'm picking them up again otherwise I would definitely be getting Morrison's Batman. He is my favorite writer but the only titles I continued to get was All-Star Superman, Ex Machina, Astonishing X-men, and All Star Batman (which I don't know why I'm still getting.)

    Nuh uh. I just think it, based on Tieri's past work, has the potential to suck. Plus it's a big event kind of book, so the chances of it sucking double. This rule even applies when a really talented writer's working on an event book.

    See: Amazons Attack and Infinite Crisis.

    For those who both love comic books and World Of Warcraft, Newsarama has a look at the first few pages of the WoW comic from Wildstorm, written by Walter Simonson and art & inks by Ludo Lullabi and Sandra Hope.

    Ahhh, that's why they were tossing out the 'fail' comments. Should have checked the post. >.<; Here I thought the comments were out of some 'comics...ew' feeling.

    No. It switched publishers once, then stopped being free (other than the online pdf), then went to only coming out every 2 months, and ended a few months back.

    Damn. To be honest, I'd thought the comic would have been better off with (yet) another publisher, but I'm still a bit disappointed that it's cancelled completely. Oh well.

    Hey dudes, the owner of the LCS I go to said something about how Ultimatum (the Ultimate universe crossover that Loeb is writing) is supposed to "destroy the Ultimate Universe". So I don't really believe it until I read this Newsarama article: http://forum.newsarama.com/showthread.php?t=134675

    Without jumping to conclusions and generally getting ready to bitch Marvel out, what could possibly be the the reasoning for "destroying" the ultimate universe? It's a pretty great universe, I think, and has plenty going for it. The only complaints I ever hear are how some of the writers are just remixing 616 storylines instead of coming up with ideas that havent' been done in 616. Another thing to think about is that this may be a line wide reboot, though why they'd do that when the main Ultimate books are doing reasonably well doesn't make sense to me either.

    If it were going to end, I'd rather each of the titles get happy endings with epilogues showing what happens to Peter/the mutants/the Ultimates in the years to come than watch everything go off in a universe-wide bang.

    Also, I liked this a bit.
    If this is the case, then maybe my theory is correct- revamp the Ultimate Universe so therefore every time a new writer comes on board, they can create their own versions of certain characters. Spider-Man would be exempt, at least until Bendis leaves (on the day of the 12th of Never)

    It's only a matter of time before the Ultimate Universe becomes mired in its own continuity just like the 616 universe, thereby defeating part of its own reason for existing.

    This idea, however, is perfectly sustainable and will never be subject to that fault.

    It could be interesting if handled correctly (and I do get a secret thrill from the idea of something ending so I can have all of it on my shelf).

    That said, I don't really want them to end. I really enjoy the Ultimate books, and they all have lots of potential for further development. I definitely don't want to see reboots everytime there is a new writer, that would get old really fast.

    The thing is, do you think serious readers (the ones who read for a long enough time to be able to deal with more than a year of continuity) are going to bother getting into the 2nd or 3rd Ultimate universes if it's all going to get wiped out and repeated every couple of years? Are we going to have to have origin stories for Spider-Man and all his villains every 5 years? Or will they skips origins and we'll just be getting wildly different versions of characters every now and then for no particular reason?


    I don't think they can successfully run the Ultimate line on the basis of tons of new readers with a one-writer attention span.

    All the Elseworlds I've seen are basically one-shots, like Marvel's What Ifs. I don't really see a comparison to Ultimate, unless maybe the All Star books are taking place in the same universe.
