Ultimate Comics: Ultimates
At today’s Ultimate Marvel panel there was much discussion over the possibilty of the Ultimate Marvel Universe coming to a close thanks to Galactus making the cross over at the end of Age of Ultron. We have a summary of what was talked about after the jump.
For the last couple of days, rumor has spread like wildfire across the Intardwebz that Marvel is considering a big crossover between the 616 Universe and the Ultimate Universe (Universe 1610), with the ultimate outcome (see what I did there) being the closure/end of the Ultimate line of print comics.
