COMICS: Marvel To End The Ultimate Universe With 616 Avengers Crossover?

COMICS: Marvel To End The Ultimate Universe With 616 Avengers Crossover?

Another rumour to come out of Marvel's recent creative summit is that an Avengers vs. Ultimates crossover in 2014 will lead to the end of the Ultimate Universe. Will you miss the alternate take on some of Marvel's most well-known heroes? Read on for details!


When it was first created, the Ultimate Universe made for a great jumping on point for readers who didn't fancy tackling decades worth of continuity or simply wanted a fresh spin on familiar characters. Unfortunately, events like Ultimatum have left the universe a messy and confusing place. Gone are the days of Mark Millar and Brian Michael Bendis' critically acclaimed new takes on The Avengers and X-Men, with Ultimate Spider-Man (a series which no longer has Peter Parker behind the mask) the only title which truly still does what Bill Jemas set out to do when he created the universe over a decade ago. Well, according to Bleeding Cool, it sounds as if we will see "an Avengers Vs The Ultimates series next year, the second 616/Ultimate crossover, pitting one Captain America against the other." As if that wasn't exciting enough, it turns out that this event will "lead to the end of the Ultimate Universe, in print published form at least..." So, perhaps the Ultimate Universe will still live on in Marvel's popular digital format? How do you guys feel about this news? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!
