The Ultimate Universe is supposed to be a close approximation of the Marvel 616, but targeted toward the new Marvel reader. Ultimate Avengers 3 #1 features a vampire story that seems a bit too familiar, but is it really different from the Curse of the X-Men, or just more of the same?

Mark’s return to the Ultimates was well trailed by the Marvel publicity department and everyone was expecting big things from the titles original scribe. Well nobody can say that he has run out of ideas in his time away from his onetime signature book because we are only two issues into the new run and already the direction this comic is going to take is starting to become clear. It’s all about close family members and their unlimited capacity to cause emotional and physical harm.

Marvel sent its own Top 5 list to Major Spoilers, letting everyone know why you must read Ultimatum. I especially like number 1 – FOREVER! (until the next big event).  Is anyone else tired of that phrase’s overuse?  I also like number 5, as it means no more annoying Mary Jane… or does it?  I half expect that to mean everyone will become mutants. Ultimatum #1 arrives November 5, 2008, and features a cover price of $3.99. via Marvel
