Let’s jump to the other side of Marvel today for X-Citing, my love for everything X-Men knows no bounds, there’s very little I do not like. This is not one of things, I absolutely love the Ultimate Universe, especially the Ultimate X-Men!
I don’t know specifically what made the original UX-M run special, there was a lot of small things that just brought in a breath of fresh air to old and new characters. One thing I like was Wolverine being an absolute bastard to Cyclops at any chance possible and in one arc leaving him for dead in the hopes of bedding Jean Grey. This is how you would imagine a character like Wolverine to act in the real world, not doing all the heroic acts that we see in the 616.
Something that annoyed me, but it actually helped to simplify the UU was Cable, the mysterious war torn soldier from the future…….is Wolverine from the future.
It’s quite unfortunate that characters that die in the UU do not return, but like with Cable, it simplified that universe but it also meant that any hero or villain that is killed won’t be in them again and because of that the UU is in a sad state with the majority of its heroes and villains gone. But this does allow for the range to make new characters for new stories, instead of relying on taking from the main Marvel universe.
My favourite moment of Ultimate X-Men is the Ultimate Apocalypse storyline, a brilliant concept of Mr.Sinister being told to kill 10 mutants and then once the task is complete he transforms into Apocalypse, the story arc is short lived and should have went on longer. What is your favorite character/story from Ultimate X-Men? (Mar-Vell)
but when wolverine died it was it for me and by wolverine i mean logan not his f*cking son
