You know that's an old panel. Is Carol even allowed to have cake anymore. Edit: No that was not meant as a Brie Larsen joke. So the pun about no buns was not intended.

I'm out of the loop, I only recognize three of them. Logan, Laura, and Daken

Center: Logan 


right of Logan: 🤷‍♂️


Top left: Gabby/Honey Badger.


Right of Gabby: Laura of the Vault (The Original Laura Kinney that got trapped in The Vault which caused her to rapidly age 100’s of years.) 


Upper Middle: Daken 


Right of Daken: “Laura Kinney”. (The “current” Laura Kinney that was revived using an old Cerebro back up as they had no idea if Laura of the Vault was dead or alive at the time.) 


Far back right: Wolverine ‘92

Damn Laura going full Peter Parker with the clones. I dig the Laura from the vault design. The "Logan 🤷🏾‍♂️" looks like Hank McCoy cosplaying as Logan. I'm sure Sonero will hate that one.


Edit: Now that I've blown the image on my monitor at home. I'm guessing the "Beast Style" Logan is just referencing his feral "bone Wolverine" design. He doesn't have adamantium claws so it's probably just representing one his iconic looks like Wolverine '92...maybe? 🤔

Ah, right, god I try as hard as I can to blank that version out of my mind. I think you’re right. I think that’s when he went feral.

I couldn't think of his name yesterday and finally was able to look it up. BTW Wolverine has too many damned kids. I was surprised they didn't put a version of James Huson/Howlett Jr. in that image.

@MillionX, your girl is savage fam 🤣 Tagged because just to be safe. Could be considered an Ant-Man 3 spoiler.

I will say that the character's appearance (from a VFX perspective) is either something you will be able to work with, or it will haunt you throughout the film


I do respect the revised origin story though.

The Ultimate Universe is back at Marvel this summer thanks to Hitch and Hickman

The Ultimate Universe is back this June after almost a decade

Marvel's Ultimate Universe ended a little less than 10 years ago with 2015's Secret Wars. But now, Secret Wars writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Bryan Hitch, who drew The Ultimates (the Ultimate Universe equivalent of the Avengers), are bringing the Ultimate Universe back this June in a four-issue limited series titled Ultimate Invasion, which Marvel bills as the start of "the transformation of the Marvel Universe."

For those who don't know, the Ultimate Universe was an alternate continuity based in a different world of Marvel's Multiverse in which well-known characters took on new origins and new adventures, with dozens of Marvel's most popular characters populating a whole spin-off comic line.

The Ultimate Universe and the core Marvel Universe have crossed over before, notably in two Spider-Men limited series which paired up Peter Parker and Miles Morales, before Miles was brought into the core Marvel Universe with the aforementioned Secret Wars. Now, it looks a lot like the denizens of the Ultimate Universe will be crossing over with a whole cast of mainstream Marvel heroes and villains, including Miles Morales and the Maker, a villainous version of Reed Richards who originated in the Ultimate reality.

The above promo art from the announcement, which was originally revealed through Entertainment Weekly (opens in new tab), shows Hitch's renditions of the Ultimates crossing over with Miles Morales, the Maker, Tony Stark, Black Panther, Reed Richards, Black Bolt, and Doctor Strange, many of whom were part of Marvel's Illuminati secret superhero society.


“[Revisiting the idea of Ultimate Comics] couldn’t be replicating or revisiting what Bryan did in the original Ultimates - creating a streamlined, modernized version that would eventually become the spine of the MCU, and it certainly couldn’t be what I did, which was a final chapter of a pre-existing universe,” Hickman tells Entertainment Weekly. 

“We also thought the very idea of Ultimate Comics needed to be inverted from what the original universe was - we wanted this to be something that could really only exist in the comic space: a new way of thinking about, and enjoying, a new version of the Marvel Universe," he continues. "I’m pretty happy to say that it feels like we’ve accomplished those things and we’re very excited for everyone to get to read it.”

That seems to indicate that the revamped Ultimate Universe could be around to stay, perhaps even with a renewed line of alt-reality spin-off titles.

Here's a gallery of some unlettered interior pages from Ultimate Invasion:







“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!” adds Hitch. 

“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," he states. "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.”

It's unclear if this Ultimates revival is related to Jonathan Hickman's planned project with artist Valerio Schiti which was announced back in 2022, or if this is another aspect of Hickman's return to working with Marvel after some time in the creator-owned sphere.

Ultimate Invasion #1 goes on sale June 21.

@AriesWarlockwhat have you thought about the Sins of Sinister event so far?


I haven't read all the tie-ins yet, but I like the main story so far. Nice dysfunctional time-line created by Sinister himself but unable to control or escape it. At first I didn't get why Sinister went on that crazy killing rampage of his fellow council members, but it was because somehow Hope cleans the clones from Sinister's genetic tampering.

I wanted to see the four Sinisters meet and see more backstory. I guess that's not happening now, unless everything will be reset when they activate a Moira. Orbis Stellaris' deal is a computer mind ala Sage? Doctor Stasis is science. Mother Righteous is magic. Since Orbis is the oldest I would suppose he is the original Sinister but who knows.
One of Beast's logs says that everytime they bring back a mutant from the dead, Sinister's usefulness diminishes. So I take it he will eventually be dealt with.



How do you like it so far?
