To kick of this week’s wonderful informational article goodness, I think I shall quote a definition from the Francis English Dictionary: “The Ultimate Universe (Unvierseo Ultimato) – Classified in the Marvel Universe numbering system as Earth 1610 this universe is currently where a lot of Marvel movies are getting their inspiration from.
“In this universe the Avengers are a covert Black Ops team and the team consisting of Ironman and Captain America are known as The Ultimates. Death is permanent in this universe as Peter Parker is dead and Miles Morales is Spider-man.”
Now we’ve been educated, it’s time from a brief summary of what big story event has changed the world of Ultimate.
So meanwhile in the mainstream universe Earth 616, too many spandexed boys and girls have been time travelling and it has done a fine bit of damage the fabric of reality tearing a hole in the Ultimate Universe. Through this hole falls Galactus, the crazy hat giant who likes to destroy worlds. This where Ultimate Galactus meets regular Galactus. In the Ultimate Universe however, we have to worry about the pronunciation issue.
In the Ultimate Universe Galactus is known as Gah Lak Tus and is a huge swarm of space badness. These do a ‘Dragon Ball Z’ and become one over powered world eating occurrence. Of course this arrives on Earth and causes your stand story event havoc. In the process of all of this Spider-man tells his dad he’s Spider-man and he father disowns him blaming him for his mother’s death during a battle with Venom.
Captain America sacrifices his life and S.H.I.E.L.D. is de-commissioned as the men and woman in charge feel the organisation is not up to its task of protecting the world.
So the aftermath of Cataclysm is simple: S.H.I.E.L.D. is gone, Captain America is dead, and The Ultimates fall apart.
From here Spider-man and team of young heroes form the new younger Ultimates team and Sue Storm creates new superhero team, The Ultimate Future Foundation (Shortened to FF) which consists of Phil Coulson, Ironman, Machine Man, Falcon and Doctor Doom.
Yep, you read that right.
