    Hey, a fanboy can dream, can't he?

    I don't know if I'd want to read a non-Breyfogle Prime anyway

    There was a decent amount of it published already.

    I collected Nightman and Rune. I would like to see them again in a book.

    Lord Pumpkin was a great villain. Man I loved that guy.

    Night Man was such a great character they turned him into an awful TV show. There's no praise higher than that!

    And while Freex stumbled right out of the gate, Strangers was a genuinely fun and interesting title for a good, long stretch. "The Solution" was offbeat, but interesting too--kind of reminded me of the Defenders.

    That's probably true but it became real evident after Marvel bought it up.

    Yeah, don't remind me. Worse, those scenes were written in after the story was "completed." Still, I had to read... pretty much every UV story ever. And there were a couple books -- most noticeably UF, with Warren Ellis writing -- which got better. Most just sort of stayed sucky, but with better art, and a Marvel tie-in for no particular reason.

    Strangers was good, up until the end when it devolved into Englehart wackiness. I swear, I'm damn near surprised Mantis didn't show up, and the book was cancelled before Marvel took over!

    I thought the Ultraverse was a legitimately interesting idea: the idea of a totally new, totally different shared superhero world.

    My favorite of the titles was Englehart's STRANGERS., which showed that Stainless Steve still has the magic touch just like back in the day. The characters were so well characterized - especially the haughty Yrial, the working class Shrapnel, and Elena, all of whom are interesting because Steve did the thing only the people the most skilled at characterization can do: make me like people I wouldn't ordinarily like.

    Steve was great at mindblowingly cool science fiction concepts, like a city of flying beings that dwell on floating islands, that refer to the earth as "the bottom of an ocean of air," or the idea of a superhero wave that gives everyone powers - but that also brings a man's cancer to morbid life.

    The hardest thing to possibly do in superhero comics is to create a new superpower not seen before, and Steve certainly deserves credit for the attempt: we had one character that burned with different colored fire, each one of which gave him a different superpower, and then there was Ladykiller, who despite a tragic name had a cool power: able to hit anything she sees.

    Steve Englehart is very good at capturing the feel of certain locales, like for instance, Las Vegas in his COYOTE, or his . In STRANGERS, Steve gives the same treatment to San Francisco. A friend of mine once said there really are only three places in the United States: New York City, San Fran, and everywhere else.

    - Peter David

    In that sequence, with the new books starting each month. Then there was Break-Thru and Rune and so on. Ultraforce came quite late in the whole thing.
    Hi again!

    I was wondering, would Elvin and Eliminator come with Break-Thru and Rune, or later with Ultraforce?

    What other titles, besides those listed above existed?

    If there is a website about this, if so, please direct me. :)

    Do you mean Elven? Elven happened towards the end of the original Ultraverse run, and tied in to the end of Prime. Eliminator was at around the same time.

    There were quite a few other titles, too. Warstrike, Wrath, Solitaire, Ripfire, Necromantra, Godwheel, Lord Pumpkin... Probably some more.
    Slayven ftw.
