The latest solicitations for Marvel's Ultimate line seem to confirm what a lot of readers were expecting; that the forthcoming mini series Cataclysm: The Ultimates Last Stand might mark the end of the Ultimate experiment.
The series by the former Ultimate Spider-Man creative team of Brian Michael Bendis and Mark Bagley pits the characters of Marvel's secondary superhero universe up against one of the biggest threats from the primary universe: Galactus, Devourer of Worlds. In its wake, the ongoing Ultimate titles have been replaced with a handful of three-issue miniseries. Whether there'll be anything left after these minis remains to be seen. If the Ultimate Universe is done, what happens to Miles Morales, the Ultimate Spider-Man?
The arrival of Galactus in the Ultimate Universe will initially be explored in Hunger, by Joshua Hale Fialkov and Leonard Kirk, but what Galactus's arrival means for the Ultimate version of Earth will play out in Cataclysm -- and with a name like that, it doesn't sound promising. Comics Alliance spoke to series editor Mark Paniccia to get more background on the series.
