Oh man, I just had to talk about this! Marvel has announced a brand new 4 series saga called Ultimate Invasion, which is written by Johnathan Hickman and art by Bryan Hitch. The new series will be bringing back one of my favorite universes from Marvel. the Ultimate universe.
From Marvel, here’s the details about the series:
Just announced at Entertainment Weekly, two of the comic book industry’s most innovative and exciting creators are teaming up to reshape the Marvel Universe as you know it! This June, join writer Jonathan Hickman and artist Bryan Hitch in ULTIMATE INVASION, a revolutionary four-issue saga that presents a surprising new chapter for Ultimate Comics and bold new strides for Marvel’s iconic heroes.
Launched over twenty years ago, the Ultimate Universe provided a contemporary take on classic Marvel characters and storylines. Known for its edginess and explosive action, the Ultimate Universe was home to some of Marvel’s most talked about and thought-provoking series of the 21st century. The Ultimate Universe reached its cataclysmic end in 2015’s SECRET WARS, but nothing stays buried in Marvel Comics for long. Is it time for the Ultimate Universe to make its grand return? The Maker seems to think so, and the Illuminati must form once again to stop him from his plans to destroy—or perhaps rebuild—the universe, with Miles Morales at the center of it all!
Hitch’s work on THE ULTIMATES helped redefine Super Hero comics for the 2000s, and Jonathan Hickman has successfully invigorated the Fantastic Four, Avengers, and X-Men in the last decade. Wait until you see what these two powerhouse talents have in store next! The debut issue will include new data pages by Jonathan Hickman—plus exclusive behind-the-scenes material on the world-building that has gone into this project!
I’ve been a fan of the Ultimate universe since I was a kid, and still ow the very first volume of Ultimate Spider-Man. This has been building up for a while now with little teases in Venom, Mile Morales: Spider-Man, etc. Seeing Johnathan Hickman being involved with the series just tells me that these 4 issues are going to be insane. Also, can we get details of Ultimate Peter Parker and MJ? They just drove off into the sunset and I need to know if anything else happened.
