    Ugh.

    The Marvel addiction on EVENTS WITH VERY EVENT-LIKE BIG NAMES (We have had like fifteen in the span of two years, and I'm pretty sure that I am not exaggerating that) is starting to annoy me. I don't really follow Marvel (Or DC for that matter) anymore except for small bits with some of my favorite characters, but this shit is seriously starting to get ridicolous. I mean, the heroes have barely recovered from the last huge thing that was supposed to CHANGE THEIR LIVES FOR FOREVER when they are suddenly faced with something that THEY HAVE NEVER FACED BEFORE...AND SOME OF THEM WILL NOT SURVIVE and whoops, a week later it's MARVEL UNIVERSE WILL NEVER BE THE SAME again.

    Give us a break for just a while, please? Granted, this is the Ultimate Universe (how did they manage to fuck it up so fast anyway?)

    And Jeph Loeb? Seriously? :x

    this is a seperate universe from all the other huge events you are talking about so I'm not sure what you are complaining about


    I mean aside from the Loeb thing, that I get

    I think I said that on my post, but yeah, it went a bit off-tangent...

    Still, I have to read the aftermath, if for Millar only.

    Would you prefer events without event-like names

    Waaay waaay back when, like in the first Essentials back, it's shown that his hair fell out right around the time his powers manifested

    Yellowjacket is pooping in mid-air and Xavier is looking at the sky and realizing he can't wheel away fast enough.

    Could someone explain the whole thing with Ultimate Nick Fury after the end of Ultimate Power up until now. How come he just appeared in Ultimate Spider-man last issue and everyone is like, "Oh hi Nick, you still leading the Ultimates and all that super spy stuff?"

    yeah, that also confused the hell out of me. I initially thought that it just meant Ultimate Spidey just haven't caught up to the Ultimate power continuity then realised that Fury was gone during the "Death of a goblin" arc.

    which take place before Ultimate Power

    The whole arc is a series of flashbacks to bring the game into continuity

    The right's what I'm talking about. I can't even tell if it's meant to be his bicep or his forearm but either way that is some outlandish shit right there.

    You can't see the right, though, it's brought back
    You see the back of his upper arm and his shoulder
    The rest is covered by the right leg

    The bit you're looking at is his right leg. I thought it was the arm at first too. Either way, the fact that people have difficulty telling apart arms and legs in the image suggests the pose is not ideal.

    Unless you're a blind man that's not a hard pose to comprehend
    He's kneeling with his right foot forward. He's leaning down over said leg, with his left arm forward and the right back.
    Almost like he's about to launch out of the crouch and do something

    I took it as him bowing/bending the knee to either Magneto or Doom. It's still a weird pose/angle.

    It's the same guy who wrote the episode "Company Man" which is so much better than every single other episode of Heroes it may as well be a different show.
    You're thinking of Bryan Fuller whos now on Pushing Daisies.

    He's not writing anything for Marvel to my knowledge.

    Have we sufficiently covered the "Argh, Loeb?!" angle, because I really don't think we can stress that too much. I mean, even if Marvel for whatever reason looks at his work and continues to think more of the same is good, why in god's name would you let him play in your one relatively pristine corner with all the pieces at once?

    People forget that Marvel Comics is a business and that mediocre to poor talents who can earn money (or at least turn their work in on time) are always going to have a place there, regardless of how much discriminating fans may loathe them.

    Yeah, but the thing is, you're not supposed to give these people events.

    Adding this to the OP. Spotted it while looking through Scans_Daily. Probably the most interesting of the teasers yet concidering he's had little air-time within the Ultimate books.

    There's two Stranges in the Ultimate-verse. The one who's had contact with Spider-Man is Stephen Strange Jr. Stephen Sr is off missing somewhere.
