Marvel Brings Back Ultimate Universe… with Saladin Ahmed at the Helm

Marvel’s latest waste of money is bringing back the Ultimate Universe in the 10th issue of the Miles Morales Spider-Man series, with a most unwelcome disgrace of a writer manning the project:


Three years after its seeming closure in the final moments of Secret Wars, the Ultimate Universe will be returning “in a big way” in September’s Miles Morales: Spider-Man #10, according to series writer Saladin Ahmed.
“Without getting into too much detail, the Ultimate Universe returns in a big way with Miles Morales: Spider-Man #10,” Ahmed tells Newsarama.


Not if somebody as awful as Ahmed has turned out to be is going to be writing it.

After all the bile he spewed, their continued employment of him is shameful and inappropriate. All that aside, the Ultimate universe hasn’t exactly been in big demand for the number of years since it was originally discarded as the flash-in-the-pan concept it always was. So, why should this be the big deal they want us to believe it is? I just don’t see why. Especially with 4 dollar-plus price tags that’re bound to discourage all but the most monumentally addicted to the hobby. This just isn’t worth it.
