    Oh god it's ultimate Darth Maul...

    (just kidding)

    Anyway, I don't read Ultimates, but judging from that picture I'd either say red skull or maybe Ultimate Winter Soldier? Again, I don't read so I don't know if there's an Ultimate Bucky or anything, and even if there was, for Millar to pull out Winter Soldier in the Ultimates so soon... ehh.

    Off topic, how many paperbacks of Ultimates 1 and 2 are there?

    It is most definitely NOT Ultimate Winter Soldier, as Bucky, in the Ultimate-verse, survived World War II and is now an old man, married to Cap's then-fiance. :p

    Okay, apparently the other guys are obscure Marvel Characters.

    - We know Abomination, Dynamo, and Loki
    - The Thor lookalike is either Thunderstrike or Perun. Perun was a character from the old 616 Cap comics and a member of the Soviet Super Soliders and more likely.
    - The red guy is either Vanguard or Red Guardian. And I think the "W" is a symbol, not a letter
    - Swarm is the horned female
    - The silver girl is most likely Hurricane, some C-list character Millar has made referenced to.
    - The green guy might be Whirlwind.

    I really can't wait till Thor gets out and starts to fuck shit up as we like to say. The scene with him in the jail was so depressing.

    He'll be back. And Gawd help the arsepiece in his armour when he does. Not to mention the damn good shoeing that Loki has coming to him after this. Bit of a shock about Fury's arm, though. And as for Jarvis... DAMN. If Natasha doesn't kill Tony, she's going to get an armoured fist rammed so far down her throat she'll be crapping bone fragments for a year.
    I cant wait to see how this plays out; it won't be pretty, however it goes. This comic gets better with every issue. It's the best thing on the market, IMO, and definitely the one comic I look forward to getting my hands on the most.

    I wonder if they'll use Tony's impenetrable skin idea. In the Ult iron man series, he has skin armor that can't be destroyed. Hopefully natasha shoots him and he just smiles and smacks the shit out of her.

    Back to the villians for a sec, didn't Millar say in a recent Wizard he's introducing the Ultimate Red Skull and Ultron during this arc? Maybe since Ult. Vision is female Ult. Ultron is female too? Bah well, this is my favorite insanely late book next to Astonishing X-Men.

    Do you think this will tie in with Xmen, Spiderman, or FF?

    Considering the mention of the FF being buried under the Baxter Building, I'd say that FF will definitely get a tie-in. This is way too big to not have repercussions across the other Ultimate titles.

    Considering this issue is 2-3 months late and FF is running on schedule and we've seen zero repercussions in the FF title, I'd say no would be a safe bet.

    Aside from mentioning the FF being buried in the Baxter building, they also mention that the X-Men were restrained and were looking for any strays in the building. Hard to say if they will or wont mention this event in the other Ultimate titles but they have mentioned some events between the Ultimate titles before...

    yeah, the big theory over at millarworld is that the arabic colonel guy is the red skull. being that we are fighting arabic countries right now. like how back in the 40s, germany was our enemy and the red skull came from there.

    I can't spot Loki in there, but not having read the comic yet, he's prolly the guy in the front. The guy in red with the helmet and the seeming "W" symbol on his chest, any chance it could be some version of Wonder Man?

    Or the fact that Peter's dad mentioned Reed Richards during the Venom arc.

    Reed Richards was mentioned like 4 times throughout different books. It's nice to see so much muching up on continuity but no one cares. The prefect example was the Ultimate Team Up book. Apparently 1/2 the book happened, half didn't. Spidey did indeed fight Hulk, thus the Ultimates. He also teamed with the X-Men. However the FF issue never happened. Neither did the Iron Man one.

    ...I thought the purpose of the Ultimate books was to NOT be tangled up by continuity errors?
