    Yeah, out of all the Ultimate books, the only one people seem to care about is Ultimate Spidey. I don’t see them canceling it, maybe the other books.

    They could end up doing like the MC2 Universe. Amazing Spider-Girl is reguarly published, but the other characters only guest star or occasionally have mini-series.

    I was kind of hoping to see more deviations from the 616.

    Example:
    All X-Men are drafted to become Avengers, as a result of the Avengers v.2 #12
    The nations can use the existing resources, but not make any more superhumans.
    If you’re not affiliated with the X-Men, then you’re not forced into it.
    Thus, the X-Men start being treated like grunts, doing all the menial or brutal work.
    Ultimately (no pun) they rebel, decide this is crap, and become outlaws.

    I don’t know, stuff like that.
