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.
