Yesterday saw the release of the final issue of Miles Morales: Ultimate Spider-Man. Secret Wars is next (which will apparently suspend/end every comic I currently buy from Marvel) and then after Secret Wars, Miles is an Avenger.
I will not lie…I am not entirely sure I get what the post Secret Wars Marvel is supposed to be exactly. Is it just blending some of the Marvel worlds into one world? Will people remember the old universes? Or will they be living lives as if this was the only universe they ever knew? Is it just combining the Ultimate and 616 universes into a single universe? Or will it also incorporate elements of other Marvel worlds?
Will Ganke die?
I have really enjoyed Bendis’s loooong run on the Ultimate Spider-Man books. I thought he did a terrific job with Peter Parker and Miles Morales. In fact, after my hiatus from comics, Miles was one of the reasons I thought to check back in on the scene.
The idea that the Ultimate Universe is going away is, oddly, a more bitter pill that the 616 for me. The Ultimate Universe has been down for the count, only to survive multiple times…and now they will not be coming back…and I am sorry to see it go.
