We haven’t seen a lot of the Ultimate Universe from Marvel since Secret Wars wrapped in 2015, but in June 2023, Jonathan Hickman and Bryan Hitch kick off Ultimate Invasion.
Is it time for the Ultimate Universe to make its grand return? The Maker seems to think so and the Illuminati must form once again to stop him from his plans to destroy – or perhaps rebuild – the universe, with Miles Morales at the center of it all!
“It’s been more than 20 years since I started work on The Ultimates, a project that would have a big impact on my own career and beyond, so when Marvel came to me with the idea of revisiting the Ultimate Universe with the man who so brilliantly and spectacularly destroyed the last one, I was both feet in!” Hitch said in a press release from Marvel Comics. “Jonathan is a terrific writer of big, sprawling epics, and we’ve talked about working together more than once so for this new Ultimate Universe adventure to unite us is very exciting. I get to bring two decades of new experience as an artist and storyteller to this. It’s new, different, and familiar. It’s big-budget, high-concept, widescreen storytelling. I feel right at home.”
Ultimate Invasion #1 arrives on June 21, 2023.
