This week I brought home the last hardcover of Grant Morrison’s Zenith series, which I’ve discussed in this column and reviewed before. I was elated! I remember reading this 2000 AD tale years ago and being blown away by it! It still is ahead of many comics coming out today! I was poking around online to see if other people were as happy as I was. I did find some who shared my feelings, but I also found a perception that genuinely stunned me: “It’s too old to be any good.” In other words, it might have been great when
Marvel sent out another teaser image, and if we are to believe what we are seeing, Marvel may finally be bringing the Ultimate Universe to an end.
Press Release This March, the Ultimate Universe attempts to rebuild from total devastation at the hands of Galactus. But with every ending there comes a new beginning – and the next stage of the Ultimate Universe starts here! Today, Marvel is pleased to present your first look at SURVIVE #1 from the blockbuster creative team of Brian Michael Bendis and Joe Quinones!
It looks like Marvel isn’t ready to let go of the Ultimate Universe just yet – even though Galactus and his appetite made it look like it was all over. Marvel has announced it will rebrand the Ultimate Universe to Ultimate Marvel NOW! beginning in April, and will launch three titles that pick up where Cataclysm left off.
Marvel Comics recently released their solicitations for November of this year. There are a couple of things that have the Internet abuzz. For an event named “Infinity,” it sure doesn’t last long. The first chapter has already come out, and November will see its end. But there will be very little, if any, lag time between Infinity and the next big Marvel event, which will be called Cataclysm. The basic plot of that new event is that the characters in the Ultimate Universe (what I refer to as the U-verse) take on Galactus from the “regular” Marvel Universe (Marvel U).
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.
