SDCC '13: Will The Ultimate Universe Come To An End In CATACLYSM: THE ULTIMATES LAST STAND?
There have been rumours circulating about the end of the Ultimate Universe for a while now, and that seemingly comes one step close to being the case as the 616 version of Galactus arrives on their Earth in Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley's Cataclysm: The Ultimates Last Stand.
That's right, Ultimate Spider-Man creative team Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley will reunite for Cataclysm: The Ultimates Last Stand; a story which will feature the 616 version of Galactus arriving on Earth. The five-part series - which was announced at the San Diego Comic-Con yesterday - will debut in November. "This is what we think is one of the most eventful chapters in the Ultimate Universe since its creation," Bendis told Newsarama. "The Ultimate Universe is in real jeopardy. There's going to be fallout. It's very exciting, and hopefully a very emotional story, like Spider-Men was. And something for people who haven't been following every damn thing we do. For people who have followed everything? Huge payoff." The series will conclude with a "gigantic epilogue" that the writer compared to Civil War: The Confession, but whether or not this story will bring an end to the Ultimate Universe (many fans have been speculating that the popularity of Miles Morales will see him find a home in the 616 one) remains to be seen. "I know people are really worried about the fallout and what that means for the Ultimate Universe," Bendis added. "And they should be. It's a pretty big deal."
