Today Marvel announced ‘All new Marvel Now’ spinning out of the Ultimate line’s Cataclysm was three new ongoing series that will feature the Black heroes Ultimate Cloak, Miles Moralesand Ultimate Falcon.
Here’s the official info thanks to Comic Book Resources (CBR):
Ultimate FF sees Joshua Hale Fialkov stay in the Ultimate U, drawn by Mario Guevara, and giving the Future Foundation the spotlight in the younger universe. “It’s a team of geniuses, four of the smartest people in the Ultimate universe. And we’re missing one, and that one happens to be a psychopath,” Fialkov said of the new team. He revealed that Tony Stark and Sue Storm make up half of it, but was mum on the other two members.
All-New Ultimates Miles Morales, Kitty Pryde, Bombshell, Cloak and Dagger and Black Widow (formerly Spider-Woman) have been announced as the main players in a new series spinning out of the destruction of “Cataclysm.” “All-New Ultimates,” written by Michael Fiffe (COPRA”) and illustrated by Amilcar Pinna, follows the adventures of the group of young heroes as they attempt to manage living in a world that was nearly devoured.
Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man Brian Michael Bendis and artist David Marquez, for their part, will continue their partnership in the Ultimate U with “Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man,” a new title for the boy who replaced Peter Parker under the webbed mask several years back. “You can look at this as kind of his Bar Mitzvah of sorts and, now, he has to take the reins of Spider-Man under the new world he finds himself in,” Bendis told the AP of the character’s post-Galactus reality.. “His entire life as a human being has changed.”
I don’t know about you guys but this is all great news! I now have three books to pick up monthly from Marvel at a time when my interest in the Ultimate line was fledgling at best. This also confirms my suspicions that despite all appearances to the contrary the Ultimate Line will not be cancelled because of Cataclysm which finds Galactus unleashed on their Earth. Myself and BlackheroMarcus had this same discussion back in December 2013.
What do you think of all this?
Sound off below!
More as it breaks!
Ultimate Marvel NOW! sees these three series all launch with a first issue in April, 2014.
