So when I was into comics, there was no such thing as Ultimates. Now that I am getting back into things, there's all this Ultimate this and Ultimates that, and hey look, and Ultimate Marvel forum , so tell me, what exactly is Ultimates? Is it just a series of titles starring different version of character from normal Marvel, separate from main marvel time lines/realities? Do the Ultimate titles tie in with each other somehow? Is there anything I should know about Ultimates if I want to pick up a title?
