It's teased that Ultimate Comics Ultimates #15 contains something huge and that's why the cover is classified.
The X-Men team will consist of Kitty Pryde, Iceman, Rogue, and James (Wolverine's son).
David Marquez was announced as a a Marvel exclusive artist.
A new Ultimate Comics Iron-Man limited series was announced with Nathan Edmondson writing and art by Matteo Buffagni. The story will be called "The Demon in the Armor" and the main villain will be the Mandarin.
