I checked out BleedingCool and they had a part of the solicits crossed out: Ultimates/X-Men crossover with DWF.
That could be a hint. What does DWF mean?
I'm thinking it means "The Day We Fell"
In 1942 Roosevelt authorized the SS program, in 1943 Nick and Lucky Jim are abducted and turned into the first Super Soldier and Mutant Zero, respectively. Later that same year after Nick escaped captivity the data from his transformation was used to create Captain America.
Between 1944-1945 Lucky Jim would somehow escape Weapon X and join Steve in the war, but then somehow get recaptured by Weapon X only to be freed years later again by Magneto.
This actually sounds pretty good.
"Citizen Kane clearly isn't the greatest movie ever made for one simple reason: The Predator wasn't in it."
This sounds pretty awesome. I'm glad to hear some good news after being let down by the Spider-Men reveal.
1) Find a bad guy
2) Be Wolverine
Bring Back Ultimate Wolverine...again!
America, led by the Captain himself, wins in a blaze of glory. I see nothing anti-American about this. There's even some pro-conservative implications, as the Ultimates took preemptive measures against a Middle Eastern country and they ended up being right.Part of why I'm not a fan of Millar's run is due to anti-American subtext. Captain America represents America, similarly Superman is SUPPOSED to as well, but DC is deciding to mess that up too. Captain America and Superman both have another thing in common and that's that they are supposed to be able to make moral decisions that we can't. They are supposed to be the people we can relate to, they are supposed to be the people we wish we could be. Millar's run makes Cap, as MrV said, an "arrogant asshole", and while there is anti-French sentiment in America but Millar goes overboard and even then pats himself on the back for it later. As I said, Captain America represents America, he is a symbol, and Millar knows this and if I was a foreigner and I read this as my first exposure to anything American I would hate America.
I like Ultimate Comics. - Read them with us!
I also buy: Captain America, Avengers, FF, New Avengers, X-Factor, among others
Superman wasn't created to represent America, he was created to represent a man the gangsters couldn't shoot down, the man the corrupt politicians couldn't stop, he was the Man of Steel, the hero of the people. Captain America never had any anti-french sentiments, he simply said something he himself found stupid in the Ultimates volume 1. Captain America is a soldier, the man Millar had visit Afghanistan troops giving them thanks giving turkeys, be there for his his country and save the world a countless times.
If anything should be considered "Anti-American" and making a foreigner "hate America" shouldn't that be Hickman's Ultimates? President Obama. Agent Flumm. What they did, noone here approves.
