In what appears to be yet another move in the Fox lockout, Marvel is cancelling the (new) Ultimate Fantastic Four after just six issues. The book’s writer Joshua Hale Fialkov took to Twitter to announce that the book would end, saying the following, “Sad to say that UFF is finished with issue 6 and due to my illness last month, my last issue is 5. Heartbroken but extremely grateful.”
Marvel have since confirmed Fialkov’s statement, increasing suspicions that Marvel intend to decrease the popularity of their comic book properties owned by 20th Century Fox after reports last month claimed that publishers were restricting Fantastic Four comics.
This April, witness the birth of a new team of super geniuses the likes of which the Ultimate Universe has never seen in ULTIMATE FF #1 – a mind-bending new series from blockbuster writer Joshua Hale Fialkov and artist Mario Guevara!
Though they survived the cataclysm, the Earth lay in ruins. And though Galactus and his Gah Lak Tus swarm was defeated – the Ultimate Universe is breaking apart, and fast. The world’s greatest minds – Sue Storm, Tony Stark, Sam Wilson and Machine Man must band together to solve problems too big to tackle alone.
As the new and improved Future Foundation, they are all that stands between us and cosmic level threats that would see the entire universe extinguished.
But world ending threats are not their only problem! And old foe has returned…and he’s joining their team?! Doctor Doom has resurfaced, and he is their only hope to stop the oncoming destruction! But what is Doom’s true agenda? And will the FF uncover it before it’s too late?
Don’t miss the blockbuster first outing of a new team for a new era. The stakes have never been higher this April in ULTIMATE FF #1!
Marvel has released information on its November-shipping title and it appears that yet another major "comic book event" is about to erupt in the Marvel Universe, though this time its Marvel’s Ultimate line that is affected. Every single book in Marvel’s Ultimate line in November has been repurposed to tell the story of the Cataclysm event, which pits the massive and mighty Galactus against the Ultimates.
The chief architect of this event appears to be top Marvel scribe Brian Michael Bendis. In addition to the three-issue Cataclysm: Ultimates mineseries, Bendis is also penning the crucial five-issue Cataclysm: The Ultimates Last Stand series, as well as a 3-issue Cataclysm: Ultimate Spider-Man. One other key bit of news to come out of Marvel’s November solicitations is the return of Miles Morales, who puts his costume back on after mourning the tragic death of his mother.
The only other "Ultimate" titles listed for November are the first issues of the 3-issue Cataclysm Ultimates series, and the 3-issue Cataclysm: Ultimate X-Men series, both of which are being written by Joshua Hale Fialkov.
Is your mind prepared for an encounter with the deadly Terminauts? What awful master do they serve? What horrible fate awaits Superman and the city of Metropolis?
