    This is why the Ultimates line is flagging… If you copy TOO much, it’s just homage without any creativity. But a wild divergence like this just leads to “Earth-2” syndrome, and nobody understanding the continuity of EITHER world.

    So, wait a minute …

    Ben, in the Ultimate universe, used to be an orange rock guy but now he’s a pink diamond/crystal/energy/whatever guy? And, Nick Fury used to be Samuel L. Jackson, but now he’s a white guy? And, Sue Storm had been an approximately college-aged (along with the rest of the Fantastic Four) super-genius, but now she’s mom-aged like in the regular comics?

    This is why I gave up on these comics.

    Enough with the “This will change (insert Universe) FOREVER, AGAIN!!!), it’s really tired and how about they just try to let things happen organically and if it happens to change the status quo, well then Damn, that’s how the world works. Things happen and therefore the outcomes change the world around them. Stop talking about how much it’s going to change everything again.

    I’m cool with a new take on a character. Have the Hulk be a savage monster that actually causes real casualties during his rampages and then be a repentent broken man when he reverts to his human form, I’m cool, the central conceit still holds true. You take Ben Grimm which, to me, is a character that struggles with maintaining his humanity in the face of no longer looking human, but despite or maybe due to his visage he goes on to be an honorable and potent fight against the forces of evil and chaos. I feel like he loses something if he can just power down and look normal like everyone else, I’d have been fine if they reinterpreted his particular malformation, crystalline-rock structured guy would have been fine too.
