As the Ultimates make their last stand against Galactus, Ultimate Spider-Man and Reed Richards head to the 616, but how long will they hang around?
In mini-series Cataclysm: The Ultimates Last Stand, Miles Morales and Reed Richards head to the regular Marvel Universe looking for help. This will be the first time Ultimate characters have had a chance to explore the regular Marvel Universe. Will they decide to stick around?
It certainly opens up possibilities, Miles has shown to be a decent replacement for Peter Parker in the Ultimate Universe, could he serve that same role in the 616 and replace Spider-Ock for a while? Will Ultimate Reed Richards redeem himself, or find a new world to terrorize and a new mind to be tested against in his regular universe version?
The Ultimate Universe has certainly fizzled from what it once was, this could also be the chance for some house-cleaning. The slate may be wiped clean for new and more interesting versions of characters like Miles to exist in the Ultimate Universe instead of just rehashed versions of the existing characters. The regular Marvel U is telling the kinds of stories that were once told in the early days of the Ultimate Universe, Marvel has needed new angle for those books for a while now. Either a clean slate or fold them into the regular Marvel U may be the best options.
We'll find out early next year.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane
Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea. Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California. When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead. Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim. If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: www.jeremyshane.info for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
