    It's a crossover between Ultimate Fantastic 4 and Ultimate X-Men. It's going to involve the entire ultimate cast of characters. Ultimate Origins and Ultimates Vol. 3 are lead in prequels to set the stage.

    There's no story information out yet other than "it will change things forever" type jargon.

    Well, I already get UFF, so I guess I may as well pick up the UX issues too. Thanks for the info.

    As long as Ultmate Spider-man stays out of it I am fine. It`s the only one I`m getting anymore. The only spider-man title now too. Marvel titles have been droppng from my pulls for a while now.

    In what way? Seriously. What are you referring too? Ultimate Origins, whether you like it or not has set the Ultimate Universe far, far apart from the 616.

    I think yodafett was referring to the fact it's an event that will "change things forever" like every recent event for the 616 universe has said.

    I suppose, but that's not really a Marvel Comics thing; that's something most comics publishers use when announcing an event. Heck, I'm pretty sure it's been tacked onto a lot of non-comics related products and stuff as well.

    I think the point is that it hasn't been an Ultimate Marvel thing to "change things forever" before. They've had a couple of crossover event things but not of the "change things forever" variety.

    I'm sick of crossovers, the only one I'm really looking forward to is legion of 3 worlds.

    Well, I read three Ultimate Titles (Ultimate Fantastic Four, X-Men, and Spider-Man), they better not be getting rid of my favorite titles for some shock value mini-series. I'm going to send Fantastic-Oh-Five after them.

    I can't see the Ultimate Universe ending. Spiderman and Ultimates are running strong, when Ultimates comes out that is. FF and X-Men however seem to be dying a slow painful death. Maybe the end of the line would be good but I think Ult Spidey would keep going similar to Spider-girl did from the M2 line.

    Exactly. Sorry I wasn't more clear in my original post. IF (and that's a big if for me) Marvel actually does something Creative and original (even if we don't like it) and ends the Ultimate Universe, I would happily proclaim to be wrong and eat my words. After the last several years of "huge, ginormous, will change your life forevar!!!1!1" storylines, Ultimate just seemed like the last refuge for character and story as opposed to event-driven storylines. And yes, I know Marvel is the only perpetrator of those, I just think Marvel is the biggest one.

    In the a recent Wizard issue Joe Quesada said that one Ultimate title would be ending, and if I remember correctly another one would be starting up.

    Rumor is now that Ultimatium may be it's own 5-issue mini now; instead of the X-Men FF crossover. Ult. Spidey will also tin in big with a 5 part story that ties into Ultimatium running alongside it.

    OMG.... I just had a thought.... when the clustef*** in their Spider-man books started, people resorted to reading the Ultimate titles! What if this is retaliation for that?!?!?
