Ultimate Edit Week 5: Day One

September 27th, 2008 by | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

It’s that time again. The final week of Ultimate Edit is upon is. Ten months to come out with five issues that had a two-year head start. Impressive. Unfortunately, this doesn’t beat Loeb’s other recent five-issue travesty Onslaught Reborn, illustrated by Rob Liefeld, which took well over a year for all five issues to come out.

You know, the delay of that comic hides the fact that it starts off with the end of House of M, but by the final issue, which was about a day or so later, it’s post-Civil War. What’s up with that?

Quick recap!

Issue one had Scarlet Witch get shot. Donald Blake showed up and it’s never touched on again.

Issue two had a big Ultimates vs. Brotherhood fight.

Issue three was Wolverine talking about how he used to wear an onion on his belt, as that was the style.

Issue four is about a battle in the Savage Land followed by a robot cliffhanger.

Let’s get this show on the road.

What can I say? I’m from New Jersey. I have to work in a Jovyism whenever I can.

And, as always, thanks to my collaborator (in the Vichy French sense) ManiacClown, who is indeed talking to you.

Check back in tomorrow. Especially check back on Day Seven for a special extra surprise.

Day Two!

  1. You know what the original version of this really hammers home? What a freaking waste the Ultimate ‘verse really is. While Loeb’s plot is almost indescribable in its crazy idiocy, at least it TRIES to go somewhere new. Everyone just seems to write “What If Everyone in the Regular Marvel Universe Was a Giant Jerk?” Boring! Now a book that actually went with a Ultron/Quicksilver/Scarlet Witch love triangle? Just said screw how messed up it would come off, this is actually different? SOMETHING to make the characters into more than just Super-Jerk variants…

    Oh well…

  2. Fuck, I can’t wait to see how you try to make THE SCENE even *more* ridiculous.

  3. “You see, back in those days, rich super-spies would ride around in quinjets, dropping superpowers on people, and one day I seen Nick Fury flying by. So I ran out with my hypodermic syringes…”

  4. Uh, Lurk? 616 Wanda dated a robot & a real dude already. I’ll grant you he managed to turn it into a murder mystery in the process, but then we’re back to “almost indescribable in its crazy idiocy” based on the last page.

  5. the Fury/Pym talk is great. Pym is ginger and Fury’s good eye is glowing.

    Also, is Ultron’s gun part of him, or is he holding it. If it’s part of him, why the fuck does the butler have a gun-finger?

  6. Loved the Bon Jovi remark LOL

  7. I like Chaykin’s art! (it’s ugly as sin but it gets the point across, you know? You want someone to draw sleazy, you call Howard Chaykin.)
