‘All-New Ultimates’ #1 Turns The Ultimate Universe On Its Ear [Review]

All-New Ultimates Preview
Marvel Comics

A little over a decade ago, when Marvel's Ultimate Universe was really coming into its own, the creative teams behind the Ultimate books established a distinct storytelling style that seemed to serve as a contrast to the mainstream books being published at the time. The pacing was deliberate, with a lot of time spent on character conversations. The art was big, bold and filmic, with an emphasis on realism. Iconic characters had long arcs.

All-New Ultimates #1 by writer Michel Fiffe, artist Amilcar Pinna and colorist Nolan Woodard doesn't do any of that (other than perhaps the art being bold). It's lightning-fast, takes place in a very heightened reality and, Spider-Man aside, revels in its focus on characters you're unlikely to see starring in a movie anytime soon. In many ways, it's a rejection of the established Ultimate style, a very Ultimate idea, indeed.

Ultimate Marvel Now

It's been fourteen years since Marvel launched its Ultimate line of comics, with the goal of establishing a universe in which its characters were younger and modern, and where many of the continuity restrictions of the established Marvel line didn't apply. Over that time, many changes have been made and several significant characters have died -- most notably Peter Parker, who was replaced in the role of Spider-Man by young hero Miles Morales.

Now, the Ultimate line will once again embrace change. Following the conclusion of the current line-wide Cataclysm event -- featuring the heroes of that universe facing off against Galactus -- Marvel has announced Ultimate Marvel NOW, an initiative that will see a new direction and new titles from creators Brian Michael Bendis, David Marquez, Joshua Hale Fialkov, Michel Fiffe and more.
