Is This “The End” Of Marvel’s Ultimate Universe

Yes, it’s still a thing.

Over at CBR you will find an EXCLUSIVE report - that was then sourced by every other news stie kind of making one question the importance of EXCLUSIVE – showcasing yet another Marvel summer 2015 teaser for their 2015 “How Much Can We Charge For This?" event that will surely put heroes against heroes.

Much like their most recent teaser, Atlantis Rising,this one doesn’t seem to be a complete rehashing of a previous marvel money grab…event (the operative word here being “complete”):

(just look at that beutiful watermark)

That’s right, after threatening to end the Ultimate universe with a Cataclysm, horrible writing, and a confusing set of jumping on points; it seems that Marvel might actually be about to pull the trigger on the once readable line of books.

Or, you know, maybe not. “The End” refers to a number of miniseries that ran through the mid-2000s that told the possible final stories for various members of the Marvel Universe. The only one of which worth reading was Hulk: The End by Peter David. So, it could be just another one of those.

Oh, another thing, as CBR (surprisingly) points out, the above image is a direct swipe homage of Marvels 1992 limited series, Contest of Champions:

So, yea, another teaser for another event even though we have, at least, three other Marvel events to trudge through before we even get there.

About the Author - GHERU

RU, or as he’s known in the writers’ room: the cute one, is relatively unappreciated in his time.  RU’s YouTube show, RUviews is watched by literally multiple people every month and his Outhouse articles have helped line many a bird cage.  Before you send RU a message, he knows that there are misspelled words in this article, and probably in this bio he was asked to write.  RU wants everyone to know that after 25+ years of collecting he still loves comic books and can’t believe how seriously fanboys take them.  RU lives in Akron Ohio (unfortunately) with WIFE, ‘lilRuRu, and the @DogGodThor.  You can also find him on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, & even Google+ (if anyone still uses that).
